Moderator Announcement

Post by edd_jedi »

After almost exactly five years of service, our resident forum detective and all round good guy Joe has decided to step down as a moderator from SWFUK. As I'm sure you all know Joe is involved in many different collecting projects including his trilogo.info website, upcoming book, numerous Facebook groups and that's just Star Wars. It's been great having him on the team and he will definitely be missed.

I'd like to thank Joe for his help, wish him all the best with his other projects, and say I hope he sticks around as a member.

Good luck in the future Joe.
Looking for any Palitoy logo esp. 30, 41 and 45a.
Also looking for any 20back droids and cantina aliens on any cardback.

Sorry to hear that one of the most level headed members on here won't be stepping in when things turn south, but I'm sure Joe will still keep the ship on it's right path through the forum when needs must.

I think you've done a cracking job over the years and look forward to reading your various posts and thoughts in the future.

FAKE NEWS! SAD!

Seriously though Joe. I've always admired your ability to be the voice of reason in any forum spat. You will be sorely missed. I will miss you.

By the way, if you pull a WSD and disappear from the face of the earth again I will personally hunt you down. Not a threat. A promise. :)

Thanks for all of your tolerant work,
A responsibility, not ever shirked,
Honest approach with our wellbeing in mind,
But when the occassion was called for humour he would find,
Impartial until the line may be crossed,
But temper was held and never lost,
Will be missed in the role, but I speak for us all,
Your input on here away must not fall,
Your other commitments dictate you must roam,
But SWFUK without doubt is your home,
So don't leave for good, SWFUK ....don't bin it,
It's a far better place with JOE in it!

Thanks for all your work, very much appreciated, a top man indeed :wink

Hope you stick around Joe, noticed that you have not been as active over the past 6 months or so. Sounds like you have got plenty of other Star Wars related stuff going on, so I look forward to that. Sad in one aspect but you have to do what's best for yourself at the end of the day. :( :)
