As many of you have noticed in the "testing" thread - Cheryl (casinitaly) is now officially a moderator in the ABF, replacing Yuri who hasn't been around for a while.

Please join me in congratulating (or consoling!) her on her new status.

Congratulations, Cheryl! In honor of your new position, I promise not to start any threads entitled "Einaudi is way better than Bach" for at least a couple of months. wink

It will be interesting to see what the first post I make is for which the moderator contacts me smile Beware, Cheryl!

But I think BB/casinitaly are going to be a great team!

Congratulations again, Cheryl!

Greg, (BB Player) is a fantastic mentor moderator and will be a big help to you… he has helped me out a few times, since he is actually a global moderator (has mod authority on all the forums). (Thanks again, Greg!).

If I can offer you any advice, it would be… ah, let’s see, be polite but firm, accretive but gentle, sensitive but thick skinned, wise but aware. Oh yea, be prepared to take some criticism, constructive or not. (I’ve been called a bully, an abuser of power and a few other names I’ll not mention.)

Also, remember the old saying, you can please all the people some of the time, some of the people all of the time, but you can’t please all the people all the time. smile

It is indeed an honor and a privilege to serve as a moderator on this great forum. It is a way of giving something back for all the benefits we get from the forum. Oh yea, one more thing… you will be compensated well. wink

Rick

Thanks again everyone, you're all very kind!

Rickster- I'll try to follow your advice...once I figure it out smile It will be a privilege to be your "colleague" as well as your friend from afar!...and I know Greg is going to be a great mentor - he already is!

Jotur....I have my eyes on you laugh wink

Sweet06 - if you are writing directly to me, then I don't mind at all if you call me Cheryl-- however if you refer to me, it might be better to use casinitaly because hat way everyone will understand to whom you are referring. smile

“Promoted”? Well, maybe… smile

“Achieved the up & above status”? Well, yes and no, or possibly...

Although it is an honor to serve as a volunteer moderator on Piano World, there have been times when I’ve been stressed out and lost sleep due to confrontations with members over moderator decisions I’ve made, or not made. I’ve often wondered if it is really worth the emotional stress, and anxiety, and without compensation. I’m not complaining or griping, (okay, that might be debatable smile ) but I’m just saying.

On the other hand, you’ve heard the old saying, “if you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen”.

Cheryl, I think you have what it takes to be a moderator on PW! And, apparently, Frank Baxter and BB Player/Greg does too.

Thanks again to Frank Baxter for providing such a wonderful internet community for us piano enthusiast! thumb

Congratulations again, Cheryl! When I saw that thread wherein you turned green, my first thought was, wow! they couldn't have chosen a better new moderator. laugh

So compliments to the moderator team too, on the excellence of their choice. smile

Dear Cheryl (aka Casini...)

I admire those who step up and take hard jobs that need doing and will not make everyone happy (Little League referees come to mind :-)

Best of luck in your new position.

Congratulations, casinitaly!

You know, you have a language edge--if you throw some Italian at me and it reads like it might be the least bit stern, I'll probably start crying. grin

Cheryl... I hope you'll bookmark this thread and come back to it in the future when you are exasperated with feeling that you are doing a thankless job (I'm assuming this will happen from time to time). smile

Well, a what a lovely cascade of messages to start my day!

I am starting to feel under the gun! I'd better do a good job.

Stubbie: I'll be really careful about my use of Italian, I'd hate to make you cry smile

I really appreciate all the encouragement and confidence and good wishes from each and every one of you.


I've been a mod before, in a different kind of forum, and yes, there can be some difficult moments. I am not too worried though - I've known you guys for 3 years now and I've seen that this is one of the most peaceful forums ever. (Famous last words? I hope not!)....
