Introducing Our Two New @U2 Forum Moderators
« on: September 26, 2013, 05:11:00 PM »
Hey gang,

After a long and exhaustive search, not to mention an excruciatingly difficult application and pre-screening process that truly tests the limits of human patience, strength and endurance, the forum moderators are pleased to announce that our group has added two new members that many of you will recognize:

Beth Austin (bonofaninaustin)
Drew Rogers (Droo)

You'll notice that their profiles now proudly indicate their role as forum moderators.

Please join me and the other mods in giving them a warm welcome and hearty congratulations on their new roles with @U2. We're excited to have their help here in the forum.

Matt

Thanks Matt! I still don't quite understand why I had to strangle all those kittens as part of the process, but I'll do my very best!

BTW, I'd also like to thank the other 20 or so individuals that emailed to express interest in becoming moderators. We were thrilled by that level of interest, and it made the decision very difficult. (That's why it took almost two weeks to narrow the candidates down and make a final decision.)

If you weren't chosen this time, we sure hope you'll give it another try next time we're looking for new/more forum mods.

Welcome! The job of moderator is not always easy but is always appreciated. 
Now doubt you will both do an outstanding job and hopefully have a little fun in the process. Well done!
