New Mod Bod needed.....  

Dearest everyone...

I took over the maintenance of Middle Mercia last summer (although you'd be more than forgiven for not having noticed!!) but due to an unexpected turn of events I've never had the opportunity to do even half of what I wanted to do with it.

A couple of weeks after taking over the moderation, my younger brother was involved in a car accident and spent a significant amount of time in a coma. He was brain damaged and has been recovering (really well, thankfully) ever since. I had to give up work to be his carer - and all internet activity just went straight out the window!

Since then I've had no time at all to dedicate to this community (or even my own journal, a lot of the time) and that doesn't look like it's going to change.

So... is there anyone who would like to take over as Maintainer of Middle Mercia? It deserves a lot more effort than I'm currently able to give it.

Just leave a comment below if you'd like the 'job', and I'll sort out a handover. I'm really sorry I've been so silent all these months - I'm sure there's a better person out there for the job!

All the best,

Very sorry that such a thing could have happened your brother, and it's admirable you should devote yourself to his care like that.

I'll be happy to take over the moderation of this place.

Thank you - on both counts. I was hoping you'd be up for the job!

It's now all yours - just go into "community members" and uncheck me as a moderator, and it's all done.

If I have the chance to contribute in the future I certainly will do. :)

I'm not volunteering to moderate; I'd just like to wish you and your brother great luck.

Thank you very much. He's doing fine - he goes from strength to strength all the time and, strangely, life's new direction aint all that bad after all - for either of us. :)
