I'm pleased to announce we have two new moderators, who will be a big help to manage the increased volume of activity on the website.

They are Mike Poole and SllyOldDuffer (whose real name is Dave).

Please treat them gently as it will take a while for them to learn what the new buttons do.

Many thanks to Dave and Mike for agreeing to help out.

Neil

Hello everybody, hopefully we can relieve Neil and Jason of some of the burden of keeping the forum a safe and harmonious place to be. In an ideal world you will hear little from us but there are plenty of undesirables always probing a forums defences.

Oh dear, as an undesirable I'd better leave now before I get banned by SoD for pointing out defects in his posts. sad

Welcome. I will try to behave myself.

To be controversial, should a moderator post a profile of himself?

Probably not, it might be like asking Gavin Williamson to mark his own homework. smile

While getting students to mark their own work can save effort on the part of their teacher - after more than 35 years in eduecation and training from early years to post graduate and adult ed. I have never yet known any Secretary of State for Education do anything but make extra work for teachers!

Just for the sake of full disclosure, does this mean there are now 4 (5?) moderators who have access to our personal data by logging on as any one of us?
