Lol ... thanks BC ... that's why I added the bit about its closing because of health issues.
That was over three years ago now and made up of family tree enthusiasts.

Now for a true cautionary tale.

On another quite largish forum I was on, which has fairly recently gone belly up, I had a forum lady friend who was on my friend list. For a good couple of years I got on ever so well with her, and had lots of cheeky and other banter plus PMs and stuff. I truly liked her an awful lot.

THEN, all of a sudden she was made a Mod.
THEN, she changed!
like I say, she just HAD to use a Mods privileges, such as I mentioned in my other post.

Before long. both me and others, who are now members of this forum, got ourselves banned by her.

Like I say, that forum is no more.
I wonder why?

All I am saying is this.
If there is a likely new Mod on the way here, then that person needs to be chosen with the greatest of care.

And I don't envy the person who agrees to do it either.
No matter what they are like!
That's a sad story you tell - wrong though to assume everyone is like that woman - I have seen power hungry people even those that do mundane jobs - but I wouldn't say everyone will be the same - whoever helps out here, is in for a lovely time of it - I can tell

Patsy. Oh! Patsy.
I am NOT of course saying that everyone is like that particular/peculiar woman.
The lady mods on here are NOT like that woman at all, and I was NOT assuming it either.
Don't try and put words in my big mouth!

If you read my post properly, you will see that I only offered a cautionary tale, and thereby told mine.

We have ALL had them.
Useless Bosses or Jobsworths where it has all gone to their heads.
Having said that.

Man OR Woman, not EVERY boss is a backside, and not EVERY mod is a backside. But promote the wrong person in any sphere of life, and all that will do is give long term problems to either the workers, or the forum members.

Blimey Patsy, you have gotten me worn out here!
