Hi all, 

I'm pleased to announce that Marc, aka Sparky, is now a moderator on our forum. Marc has been a fantastic asset to this site ever since it's re-launch in the summer of 2007. So I'm really pleased that he's accepted my request to take on this new role.

As the site gets bigger there's more moderation to do. My policy has always been to leave as many posts in place as possible, so long as their not offensive or advertising any products. We do, however, get our fair share of malicious posts by unscrupulous members as well as attempts to advertise directly in the forum. I normally remove these posts as soon as I see them but things do get through the net every now and then. 

I'm sure you'll agree that Marc's enthusiasm on this site has done much to shape its friendly and helpful atmosphere. It gives me great pleasure then, to welcome Sparky aboard as moderator!

Congratulations Marc.
You're a brave hearted fellow - good luck and please don't delete too many of my abusive posts..
Like George, I too am a member of other forums but none are as pleasant and polite as this one.  I know you will help keep it that way.

Thanks mate.
I'll try very hard not to be tempted
Lets hope that the other site's members try this one and stay for a while to get to know the good things we have here.
Thanks again my friend.
