    Standing down.

    Hi Guys. After much thought and deliberation I have decided to stand down as Moderator, and become a regular member again.

    I have found that over the past few weeks I have been enjoying the forum less and less, there is a marked change in the atmosphere that I'm just not comfortable with... the friendly ambience is fast disappearing. Recently, reading through the posts every day has become more of a chore than a pleasure. Add to this the pressure of work I will be under for the next few months. While I'm away I won't have access to a computer so I won't be reading all the posts, as I normally do. There are simply too many posts to come home to, and I will never catch up once I fall behind.

    Personally, I feel that if I am not going to be around, not reading all the posts, not greeting new members, it's better that I'm not a Moderator. Our other Moderators may be comfortable with that, but I'm not.

    We have three other Moderators who will now need to take the reigns a little bit more, unless Boots decides to appoint a new one.

    So, thanks for putting up with me over this past twelve months.... I will now re-join the ranks!
    James.

    I'm sorry to hear that, you've certainly been a great moderator. But I'm glad we won't be losing you altogether.

    welcome El Supremo
    just as long as the forum doesn't go totally to the dogs
    three other moderators? I'll be - at least two of them I hardly ever see around although I'd like to (I think I know who they are)
    well I suppose we'll find out by the weekend how sunk we really are without our super moderator
    . . . trying to be cheerful about this - not doing very well
    I think "welcome el supremo" is the best I can do right now

    I think that you have done a fantastic job, considering i don't think i even know who the other mods are. Boots needs to realise that the other mods need to be on here more or we just need new mods.

    James, you have done a great job this past year and I, along with many of the other members here know this very well and thank you for it. Positions like this are tuff and very demanding.

    Thanks for all you've done and glad you aren't leaving all together.

    James, hope we can read a lot more of your posts, even when you are a normal member like us.
    I had some times in the past when I was not able to read an write.
    A moderator should be able to keep an eye on the entirety, if thats impossible for you in the next month it´s the right decission.
    Thanks a lot for the work you´ve done!

    I'm sorry we'll be losing you as Moderator.
    I've been thinking lately that if we didn't have you we'd have already gone to the dogs.
    Hopefully it doesn't come to that.
    But I'm glad you're still going to be around. I have also wondered how you've managed to balance out the demands of being a Moderator with your family and work life. I'm sure it got pretty crazy sometimes!

    I'm sorry to hear you're not a moderator anymore but I can understand your reasons. In my opinion you were the best we've ever had (or will have) !!
    Thanks for everything you've done for the forum and I'm very happy you'll be staying as a member .......what should we do without you

    btw. love your title !!! El Supremo !!
