It's a new year - 2016 - and with the new year come inevitable changes in the Blueboard. A few of your former Mod Squad members are retiring and you will have some new Moderators taking their places for the upcoming year!

Global Moderators stepping down from full-time positions in 2016 are:

DianaM
Kell

The Administrator team would like to personally give all of our retiring Global Moderators a rousing THANK YOU for all the hours they have spent taking care of this message board!  :yourock :yay :grouphug2  :thankyou

We'd also like to officially welcome our new Global Moderators to the message board.

They are: 

dinalopomy
Schriscoe

 :welcome2 to all of you!  :flowers2  We hope you will enjoy your time on the Blueboard Mod Squad as much as we will enjoy having you here. :applause :grouphug2 :yay :yourock


Stepping down as a Board Moderator this year is Donna J. Shepherd. Donna has served as a Global and Board Moderator for many years, and we're sorry to see her go but so glad for the time she helped out here. Thank you, Donna!  :thanx :hug


Note: A Board Moderator mods certain boards only. A Global Moderator has assigned boards but also moderates the board at large. A Roving Moderator mods the board at large as able and without a time commitment, but does not have assigned boards.

Verla Kay

And I'd like to add my heartfelt thanks to all of these incredibly unselfish, generous people. Without them, this board could never exist the way it does. No one person (or even two or three people) could ever keep track of so many posts, making sure this board stays the safe, caring, sharing, informative place that it is today.

Three cheers for the Moderators and Administrators of the Blueboard! :fireworks :fireworks :fireworks

Thank you to everyone, old and new mods alike! Once in a great while I've had to call on one of you, but most of the time this board seems to run itself. Which shows what a great job you're all doing.

And unless you have actually worked behind the :curtain as a Moderator or Administrator, you will never know how MUCH time and effort is spent by your Blueboard Management Team to keep this board this way!   :sweeping :mop :vacuum :maid

OH MY GOSH I JUST WANT TO HUG EVERYONE RIGHT NOW!

 :grouphug2 :grouphug2 :grouphug2 :grouphug2 :grouphug2

Blueboarders are the best. I'm so lucky to have found you all way back when, and it's been a privilege to serve as a mod for...um...some number of years.  :eh2

The admin/mod team is a truly special group, and I'm so thankful for the time and energy those stepping down have given. MORE HUGS!  :grouphug2
