    Posted: 10 March 2014 at 14:04
Hello fellow Dyxumers/ Dyxumites (I could never decide which was the best of these).

I have been moderating the sales forums for the last five years and it has been a delight.

Unfortunately my health has taken, not a turn for the worse per se but has become challenging in terms of a number of mobility issues.

Hopefully there is a resolution but this will involve complex therapy and more surgery (fourteen ‘procedures' so far and counting).

I have decided to take an extended break from moderator duties to focus (no pun intended, or perhaps it is) on getting the problems ‘fixed’.

The other members of the moderator team will ‘don the mantle’ of sales forum moderation while I am away, (be gentle with them and please read the rules before posting).

I won’t be around to answer any PM’s with posting queries and have unsubscribed from the forums so please direct any queries to any member of the moderator team.

God willing, I’ll be back after the summer.

So, cheers for now and, good light everyone.

Nigel

Good luck, Nigel. I hope you will be 'fixed' soon and come back with full energy.
For the meanwhile, don't worry about the sales forum - we will take care of it.

Best, Shay.

He's trained us well, we just need to follow his example, i.e. Without notice.

Please read the rules people, thoroughly even if you think you already know them and it'll make it much easier for everyone.

Thanks for your moderation Nigel. It is you who has created a sales forum atmosphere of trust. I have never had a sale go awry here, and that is down to the mods.

All the best with your procedures, rest, and recovery

Nigel has been a stalwart of the moderation team for even longer than he has been looking after sales; his common sense and good humour have stood us in good stead for most of the time the forum has been active (I still link to his explanation of how we approach moderation in my signature).

Have a good summer Nigel, and we hope to see you come out the other side feeling a good bit fitter...
