As far as I can remember Sam Vera was always green with the moderator thing.

I have always noticed him to be a really nice person.

Congratulations!

Congratulations to Sam Vara, and thanks to Paul for his service over many years.
And the Blessed One addressed the bhikkhus, saying: "Behold now, bhikkhus, I exhort you: All compounded things are subject to vanish. Strive with earnestness!"

No better choice in my opinion! :heart:

:namaste:
Liberation is the inevitable fruit of the path and is bound to blossom forth when there is steady and persistent practice. The only requirements for reaching the final goal are two: to start and to continue. If these requirements are met there is no doubt the goal will be attained. This is the Dhamma, the undeviating law.

Wishing you the Best Dear Sam, in your new found role.
It is a time consuming task, I know, and it is mighty generous of you to agree to dedicate your precious time, in this manner. I repeat what Nirodh27 wrote
"A virtuous person need not make a wish; it is natural for a virtuous person to manage a Dhammic forum Superbly"

So it will be natural for you for sure!
With Love :candle:

An admin has access to all the major board functions, whereas a moderator only has the capability to move posts/threads and issue warnings/suspensions. Here at DW, the admins are also the team leaders and set the expectation of how moderators engage their roles.
