A worthy addition to the team IMHO. Maarten I know you will keep us all in order in the nicest possible way (just so long as we spell your name right of course!)

Congratulations Maarten. The words Chalice and Poisoned come to mind. ;-)

In fact I'm thinking, because of this -

what initiation tease we could come up with for you.....

Congratulations Maarten!

This is wonderful news! I know you will do an excellent job, and Jarkko must have total faith in you or else he would never have offered you the position! I've always been impressed with your compilation of set lists, but was SO impressed with your handling of another sticky issue a couple of days ago that was worthy of a moderator!

All the best,
Diana

As the newest member of the moderator's team and with it being your first day I guess your main responsibility has been making cups of coffee and tea for everyone else and also running errands to the shop to get more biscuits. After six months they may give you higher responsibilities.

p.s. well done, Maarten
