Does this forum have a new Moderator, and who is (s)he?

There's a rumor going around that we have a new moderator. Can anyone confirm?

Yes, but it would be presumptuous of me to do so.

Look for red where there was none before....

You are now all my subjects. I accept bribes. Those that do not conform will feel the wrath of the BAN stick.

Typical consultant - doesn't own the product, but has read about it and happy to provide crushing judgements.

Oh and we dress better. Typical comments from clients - 'we can recognize consultants because they dress a lot nicer then everyone else'

Having never been banned, but having had a warning shot fired across my bow, I can tell you this much: We are often our own worst enemy.
When the owners say that they mean to "bring the BMW community together" they don't mean for a stoning. As long as it's kept civil and reasonably on topic they're reasonable people.

Does this forum have a new Moderator, and who is (s)he?

I've convinced myself that this is a moderator-free board. We are probably looking at a key word software that issues canned warnings and responses!

If BoltJames can get away with the non-sense that he posts about, we can't possibly have moderators here. The better question I've been asking myself as of late, however, has been about whether we have a resident imposter(s) in the form of BJ or Killab, starting drama in order to drive up traffic.

Okay, yes the Kat is out of the bag.

First of all let me say that I was very honored to be asked to do this. This forum and particularly subforum is a very civil, friendly place. The great group of folks we have here assures that. BTW: there is no such thing as an arbitrary ban, so everyone can rest easy.

Thanks to all for making this a great place to be.

-Kat

Congratulations to Kat!

Not to take one iota away from this, but I have to say it strikes me as really odd that the very civil E9x forum gets a new moderator and the sometimes quite unruly F3/4x forum has not even though the need for an additional moderator there has been discussed within just the last week or so. Maybe it's in the works and we just don't know about it.

It can get pretty close to out of hand over there more often than it should. The only moderator assigned over there is Jon Shafer and I think it's probably fair to say his plate seems to be a little too full to do an adequate job of moderating that forum all by himself. It is, after all, the newest and most active forum (excepting PoliSci) on Bimmerfest at the current time.

Kat not sure why you want to suffer the brain damage of doing this but more power to you! A great compliment.

You and your SO should treat yourselves to dinner at Goode Company BBQ

Yeah, right. Already spouting the company line. If you can't arbitrarily ban people why on earth would you want the job?

As the title implies, she will ensure we do so in moderation.

I figure I've already sustained enough brain damage from my real job that whatever additional happens here is nominal. I was hoping more for Taste of Texas!
