I suppose I should write something; but I'm not sure what.

I did not expect this appointment, and I will do my best to help canuck25 to remove the spam as soon as possible.

If someone needs help with anything regarding the forum, please feel free to PM me and I will do my best to help.

One thing I would like to contribute to the forum is perhaps to resume updating the timeline, which seems to have been abandoned for a couple of weeks now.

This may require copying the contents of the file into a new file because I was not able to get in touch with Edmonton2011 as it seems only she has the rights to edit the file. Or maybe someone knows better?

I second SKI's sentiment and am happy to help carry the torch until such time - such good time - that this forum will no longer be needed and everyone gets their applications processed:)

Also, the forum has been upgraded which should significantly lower the number of spam posts.

Emad --

Glad the issue of a new moderator is resolved. I believe the two new moderators will work diligently and bring some balance to the group of active participants.

Can you please confirm that this Forum belongs to Lawyer Colin Singer's firm.  Also, did you always have Admin. privileges, or have you just been given those?  As we well know, dpenabill always claimed to be clueless about an admn/owner for this Forum: I found that odd, very odd.

Thanks, all!

Finally there are some more moderators.
Dpenabill and I have tried our best in the past, but to delete/remove posts from every thread was frustrating since the same people would just return with new usernames. You cleaned it up and then few hours later it was the same, as if nothing had been done.

After a while it just got to the point where we thought, what's the point anymore? Hopefully you guys can do a better job!
