    I am stepping down as Mod

    Unforunately, I made this announcement in the mod forum on the 1st April, so I am probably not being taken seriously. Not a good day to make an announcement like that I guess.

    No other announcements have been made publicly, so, I thought I would make the announcement myself.

    Almo hasn't been around for some time so I am not sure why his name is still at the top of the project forum. I have been going it alone for ages.

    Modding here isn't difficult and doesn't take up much of my time to be honest but it's just another thing to add to my never ending "to do" lists. Which I am trying to reduce, including modding on other forums.

    I want to focus more of my valuable time on my family, which as you know is huge, and still growing!

    I love you all.x

    Alison,
    I hope you still stay with us, and share photos as a member.
    Particularly the Kodak PotD that you seem to get quite regularly

    Re: I am stepping down as Mod

    I'm not going anywhere Paul I just want to step down as mod.

    As for the Kodak POTD, you can't get one unless you enter one, and I don't always enter. In fact, I can't remember the last time I entered lol.

    I entered 5, no luck so far.
    But I'll try with some of the bird images I've been bombarding N&W with.

    Re: I am stepping down as Mod

    I have noticed they do themes. I mean, they had a whole month of green in March I believe. Possibly for St Patrick. So they are probably focusing on easter right now.

    Summer birds and flowers may do the trick

    Good luck!

    Stepping Down?

    Stepping down? Huh? That's what you think? Think again, missy. There's no stepping down here. Moderation is for life. You'd better keep it at if you know what's good for you

    I saw your notice. But I am just busy doing other things. Sorry I didn't acknowledge your post.

    So, who wants to be the Photo Project moderator? I think that section needs some polishing up, anyway. The only reason it's continued is that people like Alison have made it happen.

    Alison ... how you manage to do anything at all is amazing, with all your family, your photography, and no doubt all the other things you do!

    Cheers

    Re: I am stepping down as Mod

    Frog is a very active and helpful member that has shown a lot of interest already in the Project forum by participating actively almost every month. He has always showed an interest in being part of the forums and I would like him to also be considered for Project Moderator. I think he would do an excellent job! Jeff

    I think the combination of Mike and Frog co moderating would be a good idea.

    I vote Frog and Mike. Perfect combination of good humour and common sense.

    I agree with having Mike and Frog doing it.

    Hey Alison I bet you feel good knowing that it takes two guys to take over your spot. :wink5: :lol:

    I don't know what to do either, Mike.
    I just wonder which of us is common sense and which is good humor?
