Starr's Formal Leaving Party.

#1  Postby kiore » Oct 19, 2011 5:13 am

Ratskep staff regret to announce the departure of starr from the staff and from her key role as Senior Moderator.
Starr has made an extra ordinary contribution to setting up and maintenance of this community and has volunteered a significant amount of her time since the early days of the forum.
We wish to formally thank her for this and wish her all the best, thank you starr.

Well, let me tell you...

Starr did pretty well. Seems to me there was the odd occasion where she didn't agree with me, though. But, on the other hand, she did write an entire song for me. Which, in retrospect, still puts me in her debt.

She demonstrated good leadership and management, and has served our forum well.

Thanks for all your great work, starr. (I'm sure i've already said this in another thread. Are there two of them?)

Thanks mate. You were fabulous.

I hope the experience didn't cure you of the internet.

Come play now. :D :thumbup: :hugs:

Thanks Starr, for all your work. I hope you'll understand that it is a compliment when I say that I hope I won't miss you as senior Mod, and that I hope to see you taking part in more of the discussions as one of us proles. :thumbup:

It's hard to put into words how much you did behind the scenes, so all I can really think to say is thank you. :cheers:

Because I know you'll appreciate it, it's time to be geeky...

That's right... and don't get too complacent Mr Metatron because I'll be collecting on that debt in due course. ;)

I'm still going to spank you... threatening to withhold spankings was the only way I could get you to do any work.

Not sure whether that technique will be effective for kiore and stijndeloose though... :naughty2:

Starr is a great leader, team manager and mentor; she has set the standards for others to follow.

Plus, I like her!

So, thanks for all you've done to make RatSkep the place it is, Starr. Perhaps we can tempt you back to Mafia now :ask:

A poor downtrodden member of the proletariat.

Can I be a prole and still have sparkles?

In Orwell's 1984, proles were dismal and dowdy - but it's not 1984 any more.

Starr,

Thanks for your experience and guidance when I came on board - your in-depth knowledge of the ins and outs of the FUA, along with background historical info on WHY it was that way, were invaluable to me.

You were also a great friend in the various Mod fora, something that I greatly hope will continue as you migrate over to "ordinary" member (though I think you'll never be ordinary). Enjoy your free time, and your new-found freedom to fully enjoy RatSkep without constantly having to worry that anything you post might be taken as some sort of officialdom in disguise.

See you around the fora!

Starr,

You played a key and vital role to the growth and development of this board, much more so than the membership probably realize and you often had to deal with way more than your fair share of shit which you persevered through like a little faireh trooper! I'm very glad to have the pleasure of working with you and getting to know each other as colleagues and friends. I hope the latter part is kept up for a long time!

Now come over here and give me spanks! Ive been a naughty boy!!!! :twisted:
