Please be upstanding for Rik, our new Global Moderator!
« on: November 05, 2009, 19:52 »
Due to a fairly major spam attack on the forum this morning, we felt it was time to introduce a new member of staff, who can deal with such matters, and anything else arising, during times when the existing staff team are less available. 

Would you please, therefore, join me in congratulating Rik in his new role as Global Moderator.  :thumb:

Rik has many years of forum experience, and we know he will be a great addition to the team on PC Pals.

 :congrats:  Rik, and thanks for agreeing to join the PC Pals team!   :thumbs:
Many thanks to all our members, who have made PC Pals such an outstanding success!   :thumb:

Be careful with that ban button Rik, when I first became a mod I noticed a suspicous looking character logged on, whose name I didnt know and whose status said he was a mod  :dunno:
I thought that I had best ban him as someone had managed to hack into the forum and given themselves mod status in order to mess things up. I was very pleased with myself for protecting the forum and spotting the naughty guy so quickly.
Unfortunately Sean, the forum admin at the time, didnt appreciate it at all. He was a little peeved to say the least as it was an account hed created for himself, and given mod status to, in order for him to be able to log in as a moderator so he could check what the mods could access against what the admin could.
As I had banned the IP address along with the username he couldnt even log in as admin to sort it out, until he got home from work and logged in with a different IP address  ;D

Congratulations Rik  :thumbs: Sounds like this person wasn't very "adept" at creating extra accounts Sandra  :)x
