    Am of 2 minds here. First, congrats! Second, are we going to miss half your wit? Or you are going to be the new style mod and continue your input like before?

    Maybe that's one option to keep Oldhand out of mischief!

    If it interests you, I write a lot of legal contracts

    No books yet... but there's enough written work that could fill quite a few
    But it's unlikely anyone will pay to read any of it

    I'm now trying to find out if JK Rowling plays badminton
    If she does, I could give her a few tips on badminton... and she could teach me the secrets of authoring commercial literature

    to clarify some confusion, Oldhand and future moderators are hand picked and invited by the current moderator staff. you can always apply but you will only get in if we believe you have the right qualities we are looking for.

    Oldhand as i have mentioned to him, will still be Oldhand after he became moderator. however, he will also need a new hand to handle some moderation tasks.

    ... make that 'several hands'
    I'm just getting adjusted to a new meaning for 'time management'

    I guess kwun's post answers the queries posted by many of us As for my take on the sweep of a mod's tasks, check out the title of the dystopian sci-fi story Harlan Ellison wrote in a single night in 1966

    ..well, let's see, based on Oldhand's qualities:
    - must have a good sense of humor..
    - must be "old" enough..
    - must have enough free time..
    - must be neutral enough..
    - and did i mention, must have a good sense of humor??..

    Ahh, a dystopian society, dreamt subconsciously by the souls of those who seek to solve the imperfections of life and create a world of nearest utopia.

    Reader of HG Wells' The Time Machine however would advise caution and seek to look for balance the struggle between humanity and nature.

    This isn't a public owned site - there is no choosing of the moderators by popular demand.

    That's a good one . While you try your hand at this 'new' job, try your other hand at writing to hmmm "Chicken Soup for....." My ehemm authoring skills arent good enuf yet for mat salleh standard.. so let ol & wise fellas like you go first.

    JK Rowling is not your cup of tea, more of "Shogun" or Robert Ludlum, and the author of "One Flies Over The Cuckoo's Nest"
