The moderators here at the B&C serve as keepers of the peace and leaders within the forums to which they are assigned. They receive no reward for the time and effort they invest in their work other than the satisfaction of helping other hobbyists. In this, they must balance the additional work of being moderators (much of which takes place behind the scenes) with the rest of their enjoyment of the hobby and all of the other things that place demands on one's time in real life (e.g., work, school, family, etc.). Tours of duty as moderators vary in length based on all of those demands, though they inevitably come to an end in time.

Sadly, it is time for a number of our esteemed moderators to hang up their meltaguns and to join the ranks of the former moderators, the Moderati Cedo. Some of these have recently retired while others retired some time ago and the administrators were remiss in announcing these changes. Please join the administrators and moderators in thanking Aqui, Brother Casman, Caillum, Dosjetka, Dragonlover, elmo, Halfpint100, The Shadow Guard, and Vel'Cona for their dedication and contributions to the site and the hobby. We are most appreciative for everything they've done and look forward to seeing them around the B&C when they find the time in the future.

As old hands move on, new ones step forward to continue their hard work.

The following members have stepped up to the role of the moderators: Dr_Ruminahui has fallen for the subtle whispers of the Emperor's Children and Chaos Daemons forums; Juggernut has advanced further on the path of damnation in the Chaos forums; Mobius0288 has taken the Apocryphon Oath in the Deathwatch forum; TrawlingCleaner yearns for a lost empire in the Aeldari forums, and Xenith has given in to the hunger of the Chaos and Tyranid forums.

In addition, some existing moderators have taken on additional duties: battle captain corpus has joined the Black Legion, Captain Semper has joined the Adeptus Titanicus; PeteySödes has joined the Lost and the Damned; Prot has joined both the Adeptus Mechanicus and Black Legion; toaae has joined the Adepta Sororitas; and Triszin has joined the Genestealer Cults.

Please join the administrators and moderators in thanking our retiring moderators for everything they've done for the community, thanking the old hands who have taken on additional work, and both thanking and congratulating our newest moderati for stepping up to further help the community.

Thank you for all the work you’ve done, outgoing mods.

I both commit to and look forward to helping maintain B&C as the best 40k-related forum out there. I pledge to spill blood and take skulls, and also to strive to be an example of making the forum a better, more positive place as a result of my presence.

Thank you guys for all your hard work. While everyone may not always agree with every decision you guys make, I full admit it is often thankless work. So just want to say you guys do a kick ass job (even when you lock threads I HAVE to reply to!!!) thank you again.

Put the toys on the table and throw the dice. Everything else is just noise.

 

...Unless you're just in this for the modeling. In which case, show your work. Yours likely looks better than mine, anyway.

And the wheel continues to turn --  suppose the proper thing to say is moderati te salutant.* Accolades and a well-deserved rest to those moderati stepping down from keeping this monolith of a forum running smoothly, and a congratulations and perhaps a degree of sympathy to those stepping into the role: you all do the Emperor's work, and I can't say I envy any of you in doing so. You all have my thanks.



*This is the point at which John Cleese would be sharply criticizing my Latin and forcing me to write moderatos te salutamus on the wallsrepeatedly until sunup. Fortunately, I have little knowledge of Latin grammar and even less acquaintance with John Cleese, so I do not think there is much worry of that occurring.

For the stones laid by our ancestors, we stand. For the days that have passed and the days that shall come, we stand.
For the living and the honour of the dead, we stand.
