View Full Version : New Moderators

09-27-2013, 07:52 PM
LHR would like to introduce two new moderators for our Community Forum. They are NOT strangers, but long time CW users (been there; done that), Senior Members of this forum (+1000 posts), talented woodcarvers (both have great websites), respected mentors and our dear friends.

Thanks to Floyd Harris (fwharris) & Bruce Kinney (Capt Bruce) for taking these positions, as we build upon this great forum community.

Congrats to Floyd and Bruce. Both will make fine moderators.

Hey, uh, Connie... did you tell them they weren't getting paid? I just want to make sure. ;)

09-27-2013, 09:04 PM
Thank you Floyd and Bruce, it is mainly a thankless job that takes people of your caliber.

Thanks for the intro!

Thanks sir!

I will try to maintain things and keep my skin thick!

Connie promised me one of your raccoon skins if I do a good job!!!

"Congratulations" and a "Big Thank You" in advance fw and Capt Bruce. I have valued your advise and will continue to do so. Stay on the Positive side.

WHAT, YOU MEAN THERE'S NO PAY FOR THIS . . . Then I'm outta her. . . . Oh never mind, I keep forgetting I'm retired. Now I get to do what I want, when I want without necessarily getting paid for it.

Congrats Floyd, and aye aye Captain, they couldn't get a better tag team for the job

Congratulations Floyd and Capt. Bruce. Always looked forward to reading/hearing what you both had to say. I'm sure you'll both do great in your new positions.

Congrats Floyd and Bruce. Always nice to see good folks stepping up!

Thank you kindly everyone for your vote of confidence in Floyd and myself. We've been kind of sitting in the background enjoying some beers and telling each other how good we are so it's time to step up and see how wrong we were . . . Nothing like a couple of big time public mistakes occasionally to help keep one humble. Be gentle please it's our first time (well actually mine despite being webmaster for a few other sites).

Caliber, did you say CALIBER Ken? Does that mean we have to come armed for this?

Bruce, it seems like it is getting that way in many places!
But, I think you will be okay. Good luck on your new post.

I still remember my first pm to (moderator) Paul K. before getting my CC.
My concern was whether or not I would be able to maintain it with my physical limitations.
I wanted it badly yet I was afraid of getting myself into a very frustrating position.
He was a great help to me whether he knows it or not.

Congrats Floyd and Capt Bruce!!! Capt Bruce here is the definition of retirement: "Work without pay" Enjoy it!!!

Good question Perry and for the first time I recently read the rules for Moderators at


Hope this will give you the answers and be sure to remind me if I violate them. Thanks

Thank you Bruce, but just remember "we have pass these rules so we can find out in them".
I did not see anywhere in there where it states you could have a long white beard and look like
" ZZ Top"
But Congrads! to both of you, having dealt with you and ZZ on a carving and personal basis,
they could not have pick a better pair. I know haveing such a high level (non paying)job
has to be great.
enough said.
