I wish to welcome to the staff team: Made of Stars and Ironclad :cheers:
Made of Stars was one of our original staff and has decided to rejoin us and Ironclad was conscripted from our expressions of interest list. I wish to thank them both for agreeing to come on board at short notice.
Welcome!

But really, this is quite an honor for me & I look forward to working with the team & helping out my favorite forum, the best place evah.
Thanks for the welcome, thanks to all the old crew for the years they've invested. If I can be half as good as them I will be pleased.

Ok, that's all for the moment. There's a coffee machine in here somewhere..

Shall we take bets as to who is the first to give SD a warning?

Well this is mental, I'm reeling today.
You must all see me as your kindly uncle, from now on. If you are nice I'll give you stuff, like.. white chocolate or five quid, say; but if you're bad.. I'll lock you into the philosophy forum for a week. OK?

I have always kind of imagined you like the uncle of some of the more senior (in years) members here... i.e in a wheelchair, dribbling down your front, raving on about how things were better in your day and trying to stick your hand up the nurses skirts but instead getting your cardigan tangled up with your blanket and rupturing something.
