When you first told me, Fairy Goddess, that you were taking this on, I am pretty sure my first reaction was "you're mad!"

So first of all, congratulations on regaining your sanity!

But more importantly, congratulations on what you have achieved over the last 18+ months. The fact that there is even just an active site continuing to host robust and insightful discussions after all this time... that it hasn't shrunk away over the community that migrated lost the aura of the Dawkins name is no mean achievement. And that is to the great credit of the staff that you've led all this time.

And hopefully now that the responsibility has gone, and you no longer have to be one holding the FUA stick, you can show more people (and remind some who may have forgotten) just how much fun a liberated Fairy can be!

Starr! I'm late to the going away party, but I wanted to say Mahalos to you for keeping order around the forum (and teaching me how to post youtube videos). :cheers: Aloha O'e, Hoku!

She's leaving for good, or just as a mod?
Is there any reason or is it personal?

I wish you the best, whatever it is. :cheers:

Bugger blast and damnation! I have not been on the forum recently, but on my popping in what do I find but Starr leaving us as Senioer Mod? Starr has done an epic job in sustaining, creating, and managing the community, and I think it is hard to find sufficient words to praise her incredible hard work. I hope to spend my time winding her up now she is not senior mod, and creating loads of lovely reports for the new mods to have to deal with, and hope she will continue to be the vital part fo the forum she has been, in a new capacity as one of us proles!

Starr, you truly are a star!

Yes, well done Starr, this break is very well earned! I hope you enjoy 'coming out' and being a regular for a while. :cheers:

hackenslash wrote:Seriously, though, this forum is what it is, in large part, because of Starr's dedication. The amount of flak she's taken as senior mod, and all for love of the forum, is nigh on incalculable.

I know she has mentored several of the staff, both former and extant, and has guided them through one of the most difficult moderating jobs on the web,a moderating job, it should be noted, that yours truly was and remains unwilling to take on.

It is a poorer forum today for her decision. I'm absolutely without doubt that Kiore and Stijndeloose will slip into the job nicely and ensure that her loss is mitigated as much as is possible, but I'm equally certain that they'd both join me, not just in recognition that the forum has suffered a great loss, but in thanking her for her contribution to the forum, which was inestimable.

I feel privileged and honoured to be able to call her my friend.

Though I have disagreed with some of Starr's decisions in the past, I have always felt that she made the effort to disregard her own inherent biases in order to follow the spirit of the FUA.
