A HUGE re-welcome to two very special members.
This welcome is to the Moderator role for which they have chosen to volunteer their time. Please take the time to welcome them in their new roles...
Doting Daughter ~ Chayna
I remember Chayna coming here in August last year, posting for her father. She has brought compassionate posts that include knowledgable understanding of prostate cancer. I believe she will continue to be a great contributor and a great friend.
James C ~ Harold
James C has also been here since August of last year and is a prostate cancer survivor. He has posted extensively about ED and cancer survival. His posts have been gentle but to the point. Also a great friend, we have been provided an excellent new team member.
With Bluebird departing, it would take a strong team effort to adhere to Lee's standard. As we add these new moderators, I ask that you all understand the roles of moderators here. This isn't a political cause, it's not a power trip, and it's not for the faint of heart. This is sometimes a difficult role trying to keep peace in a diverse group. I just posted a strong reminder of that today. Please allow these newbies to settle in by addressing me with any conflict or protest.
From the Forum Rules--------
Know Your Moderators:
HealingWell.com Community forums and chat rooms are moderated by volunteers that have some special understanding of your health condition. While they may not have answers to all your questions, moderators are here to help in any way they can. Moderators have the right to edit or delete posts without prior notice that violate of the rules above. They are also responsible for keeping promoting participation in the forums and chats. You can spot a moderator because their posts indicate that they are moderators. We are always looking for new moderators to help with our many disease/disorder topics. Find more about moderating here.
Each moderator, being human with different life experiences, may see things through slightly different eyes and some variance is to be expected. However, moderators promise to base their decision making on the content of posts rather than personal feelings about the person posting in them.
If you have a question for a moderator on a decision, you can email them and discuss it privately. They may not see things the same way you do, but they are open and approachable.
