    Due to a forthcoming project within the Hi-Fi industry, and to ensure the impartiality and transparency of the administrationteam here, I've reluctantly decided to resign my position as a moderator.

    To say that I've found this role both challenging and enjoyable would be an understatement, and I have the utmost respect for the other mods in what can be surprisingly difficult and interesting conditions.

    I would like to thank all those that have helped to make this forum a success, and hope that you continue to support the admin team in the future.

    All the best - Dana.

    Thanks Dana,

    it was very difficult having to accept your resignation. As you know, none of us wanted to. But thank you for your efforts here, they have been very much appreciated.

    And thanks also for making this horrid descision so easy on us all.
    Thanks again and good luck with your new venture.

    Regards,
    James.

    The balance of the "faery foo force" will be out ofequalibrium if Dana leaves the moderation team IMHO.

    Hmmm - that's a thought ...... as many of us are here a lot and have a vested interest, should there be nominations and votes? Or just leave as is.

    Anyway, add another 'ta very much' to Dana from me too. It is a task that can often be thankless as some people are far too easily offended when they have been 'moderated'.

    I think it’s a bit like the mafia. You don’t ask, you get invited. ..Dunno.

    For what it’s worth I thought Dana was a good mod.

    About the sum of it. Not being asked should not cuase offence though. We will draw up a short list. Prefferably of people with a broadly similar take on things as Dana - to maintain the balance nicely - then we will vote on it between ourselves.

    Opening it up could too easily end up in a bun fight TBH.

    Fight?

    Yeah a fight!

    Shortlist a couple of dozen Wammers, throw them all in a specially made cage, and let them beat the s$%^ out of each other. Last one standing is the new mod.

    Wouldanyone want toargue with that person?

    Dana's career as mod was like all good things in life: brief, and never satisfying!
