We would like to lead off by thanking the following "retirees" for their contributions to the board. They have all made contributions either through their moderation or their input into discussions behind the scenes. All will still be active members of Wondercafe2, but have decided for various reasons that they will no longer be part of the moderation team. Can we give all of them a big hand for stepping up to contribute some time and talent to the board? @RitaTG (who has been a moderator since the beginning, IIRC) @Tabitha (1 year service) @blackbelt1961 (2 years service) And, of course, our thanks as well to those who are staying on: @Pinga (Administrator) @Neo (Administrator) @Mendalla (Administrator) @revsdd (Moderator) @ChemGal (Moderator) Which now leads me to the primary of business for this post: We need to nominate three new moderators to fill out our Council slate, which will then be voted on by the general membership of the board. To serve as a moderator, one must have been actively posting on WC2 for at least a year with no suspensions or other breaks in the past 12 months. No special skills beyond being proficient with using Wondercafe2 are needed. The administrators deal with the technical stuff. Please send nominations to the WC2Admin account by private conversation by end of day, Saturday, May 20 (defined as 11:59PM PDT). When nominating someone, please confirm with the nominee that they are willing to serve before notifying us and please put in your conversation message that you have done so. The Council FYI, this thread is locked. If you have questions, start a new thread or send a private conversation to a Council member.
