SDC stepping down as a moderator

Post by retrofuturist »

Greetings all,

SDC has advised that he would like to step down from moderator duties to focus on other things.

He has been advised there is an open door for him to return to the role, should that be of interest to him in the future.

I would like to thank SDC for his service to Dhamma Wheel as a moderator - a role which he has done for nearly five years.

Please join me in thanking him for his service.

Metta,
Paul. :)

Here's how we'll do without you:

Thanks SDC.

Thank you All! :bow:

I have thoroughly enjoyed my time as a moderator and hope to find my way back to the role in the future. This is a great community and I look forward to participating as a regular member once again.

Thank you David and Paul for the opportunity, and for the open door to return. It is very much appreciated.

Cheers! :toast:

"He has been advised"??
That sort of language tends to be used in legal threats!

Edit: He still has special status, with his name in fat blue, so still not an ordinary poster.
