    We are adding more forum-specific moderators to help cover the forums better.

    In this wave, we are adding three new moderators for the Civ4 forum and the Civ3 C&C forum.

    For the Civ4 forum, ori will be doing the honors. He has long been active helping the lost and distressed there. ;)

    For Civ3 - Creation & Customization, we are adding Blue Monkey and Steph. Both of these names should be very familiar to Civ3 modders, and they will be providing Plotinus with some much-neded relief.

    Note that as part of the recent forum restructuring, all newly appointed moderators start as Junior Moderators, which means initially the moderation power is limited to the assigned forums. After 4 to 6 months, junior moderators will transition to the regular moderators group which has global power.

    Please join me in welcoming our new moderators! :band:

    Congrats guys!

    Can we also have more mods? Or is this the end to the modstravaganza?

    Hurray Steph and Blue Monkey! As a Civ 3er I am most familiar with them but thank you to everyone who is now a moderator for performing such a thankless task!

    I will do my best to behave. :D

    When I read the previous announcement of new moderators, I thought about who might be picked to mod the Civ3 C&C forums. Blue Monkey and Steph, I thought of you guys! :goodjob:
    Congratulations to you both!

    ori, I don't believe I know you, but congratulations and good luck to you as well. :)

    He didn't "make" me. I volunteered! :p

    What better way to learn how some of this stuff works, than by jumping in with both feet? :)

    Pretty much sums it up, though I've seen Blue Monkey every so often when lurking in C&C. Good choices all!

    C&C was just too small, eh?
    Unexpected, but so very welcome.
