    Hi Merlin.
    Nice to hear from you.
    Dorset's just great.
    Nothing much has changed here really. Except perhaps it's more like 150mm's rather than 77's fizzing about these days.
    Wool station is still a wind tunnel in the winter. (Wire your teeth in!)

    My german was taught to me by 1970's comics such as 'Battle' etc. Where the good guys always carried Lee Enfields & the bad guys wore chamber pots on their heads!

    "Achtung Scwinehund!!" "Ve haff vays ov makin you talk". Mu ha ha ha.

    How is glorious Devon?

    David, not in Devon now, back home in the Shires, Leicestershire, hunting county, Leicestershire Yeomanry and the Tigers.
    GV. I'll go along with Monty Python, my name is Brian and I've had a rather eventful 'Life-of'.
    "Vott iss your name?"
    "Don't tell him Pike!"
    "Don't talk about the war"
    "I vill say ziss vunce only"
    "Good Moaning, I vant to see your piss-pot"

    Merlin, thanks for the compliment, and I will keep your advice in mind. Meanwhile I'd appreciate it if you didn't stray from the topic too much in a thread devoted to helping people with matters of the moderators' concern...

    Thanks!

    No, especially if you are a Private. :wink:

    If you are a Private/Sapper/Trooper/other Regimental/corps equivilent, and NCO is "Corporal" (Whether Lance Jack or Full Screw), a Sergeant is "Sergeant", a Staff Sergeant is "Staff", a Warrant Officer (WO1 or WO2) and Commissioned Officer is "Sir" and PTIs are "Staff" regardless of rank.

    You haven't mentioned 'Wodneys' and 'Wuperts'.
    (David is calling me 'Sir' to show respect to my age not rank! Which is quite unusual these days.)(especially from teenagers.)

    mods

    Have just noticed that 'Moderator' is now 'Moderators and Administrators', no individuals, when did that happen? and what difference does it make?

    It happened only today, you're quick to notice.

    The difference is merely that we've dropped the idea of section moderators to make moderating easier. All the mods are now capable of using their powers in all sections, so it's pointless to list them as section moderators anymore.

    He he - thanks for the offer, Merlin, but at the moment the moderator job is main a sanitation job (albeit an important one for sure), in that this step was mainly taken to prevent spammers from spamming the forum. Now, all moderators can remove spam from all sections.

    While the spammers are annoying, it is nonetheless comforting that this is our largest concern (i.e.: thanks to the members for behaving).
