Joe as a super-moderator is like letting the fox run the chicken house, or Joe run the whore-house.

Large Brewing Company / History

A little story, I was loaned out to a large brewing company for six months as a millwright ( 40 years ago), during that time their manager for maintenance retired unexpectedly , so they put one of the lead hands that knew every hiding place in all the buildings,in charge of maintenance ( there is a name for that type of person, but he was also extremely skilled). Nothing like being at the top getting told from higher up and not getting response from your support team.
First,. everyone pulled as a team, secondly he knew first hand what it was to be under the gun. Hard to imagine a safety guy watching a floor foreman with his hand on the fused 600 volt safety switch handle ready to throw the switch while the electricians and millwrights swapped out the filler motor, but yes that happened, no lockout tag out.

So several members were contacted to take up the slack as a Super moderator, 3 Super Mods are in a time zone that is 14 to 16 hours ahead of me. FasteEddie presently is either home in Canada or trying to get there, when he does he is 3 hours behind me. So what I observed, first thing in the morning, new members first post, who was the first to welcome? ( Weljo2001) Questions about anything with the V1000, luggage , who responded first. How many reported posts were initiated by him. So I figured he was a good candidate and he was already trying to do a Super Mod's job. Now he has the tools. I have been told many times, a moderator is a thankless job.
I am sure @twowheeladdict you were just

I was thinking elevation to super mod was conducted by the moderators, clothed in long robes, singing chants, located deep within a dark cloistered chamber, air heavy with incense. Each time a vote was taken a little puff of smoke appeared from the chimney. After the last, and final, vote was taken the newly elevated super mod stepped out to address the adoring crowds

Seriously, thanks for taking the reins weljo2001 and thanks to onewizard for all your efforts!

I don't recall Uncle Joe mincing words or covering is opinion.
You always know where you stand with him & rather deal with someone being right before "correct".

Thanks to all involved for all the hard work in running the forum. It truly is a thankless job.

Naw that smoke , just me, you know all about the magic smoke escaping. Yes I would say that when a bean counter asked me when I thought I would get the inverter going again*** wait for it *****BOOM --that was me pushing the reset button on the bigger units, my comment about the magic smoke escaping went right over their heads. So when I told him I need more time , don't rush me, you asked me to try it again, --that noise you heard and I said something about magic smoke--Well that was a special semi conductor fuse blowing, only $150 and possibly another SCR at $1500, when you talk money to a bean counter they understand that and the hourly charge of me, and what they are paying their employees to stand around
