    BYC is the huge thriving and wonderfully friendly community it is today in large part because of the dedication and amazing efforts of incredible moderators. Being a BYC moderator is often a thankless job and can sometimes be quite stressful. We (the BYC community members, and the millions of site visitors) all directly and indirectly have benefited from the work that these volunteers provide.

    Of course as BYC grows, so does our need to add more great helpers to our team. The process of choosing members to invite to join our moderation team is not easy! Sometimes we'll discuss potential moderators for months... and in some cases years! It's not until everyone on the entire current team agrees, that we move forward with sending an invitation to join our moderator group. Of course the peeps getting the invitations need to be willing to accept the invitation!

    Well, we're VERY EXCITED to announce that the two amazing members that made it through our process and that we've invited have both accepted the invitation!!!

    Welcome and congrats to seminolewind & TwoCrows! :woot



    Now it would be nice if someone would explain what happened to the old mods. :p Speckledhen's the only one who got a public announcement, as far as I know. Yet 8 other mods have disappeared, with eggchel and kstaven being the most recent.
