As a former Blue (Secret) Administrator, all I can say is, you have my sympathy. ;)

It's really difficult to quantify, depends on the day. I'm almost always doing other stuff while I am here, unless business is really slow. I'd say maybe an average of four hours a day I spend logged in and either posting/reading/dealing with PM stuff.

Greetings!

The first thing that I wish to do is congratulate BeachBumBabs on her promotion!

Coincidentally, I sent Wizard a PM recommending BeachBumBabs be promoted almost exactly one hour after he offered her the position, even though he had not told me he offered it to her.

If that's not consensus, I don't know what is.

Anyway, I think BeachBumBabs will be an excellent bad cop Co-Administrator, and I'm going to have a great time throwing her under the bus for decisions Membership doesn't agree with Administration on working with her to make WoV Forums even better than they already are. It's going to be great to have someone take the blame for all of my bad Moderation decisions to discuss different approaches to managing the Forums in general, and being the sole person to mete out punishment having someone to discuss individual cases with.

In all seriousness, though, it's going to be great to have BeachBumBabs as a teammate to help Wizard and myself out, and I look forward to working with her.

Finally, even though I have Administrated this Forum longer (and other Forums in the past) I want to make it extremely clear that BeachBumBabs and I are EXACTLY EQUAL on this Forum, so there is no reason to appeal her decisions to me privately. I am, however, hoping for one more additional Forum Administrator to be named that way we can have a three-way consensus (or two/three vote) on ban lengths in a short period of time.

Bottom line: I'm glad this job is going to be fun again, that's what we're all here to do, right? Wizard has been a great friend to me and almost solely facilitated my first ever trip to Vegas, but strictly speaking, this is purely volunteer work on my part.

You connect the dots .......

That's what I was thinking. It means reading all
the threads I block, which is over 90% of them.
No thanks.

You don't even want to go there...lol

Just let me get better, I'll do this thing on my home turf if I have to. I have a two-way whammy of a sinus infection and viral conjunctivitis (pinkeye), but just let me recover and lose this weight I gained from quitting smoking, and it's on, rematch, baby!

You may want to keep a trash can with a plastic liner nearby in both cases.
