A new Administrator - Techie Alison

Postby Mug UK » Thu Jan 22, 2009 5:41 pm

I'm sure no-one on here will have any complaints about Techie Alison being promoted from moderator to administrator (*).

Her skills in the hardware forum and general peacekeeping haven't gone unnoticed so I'm sure you're all glad that she's going to whip you lot into shape if you do decide to step over the line. So those of you who might have found me not entirely approachable (what? me?) can now speak to a genuine lady *and* she won't charge you by the minute either - a win-win situation :)


(*) at least I think I've done that correctly - really must get around to reading this forum software's manual!
Having sold 99.9% of my 1300+ collection of originals, I'm taking a bit of a back seat on the forum. I'll still do the front-of-house admin tasks as and when they're required but, for now, I'm enjoying my Xbox 360 time too much :)

It was meant more in the style of someone who's not just pretending to be a lady just to get male attention. Aly gets her fair share of attention due to her being one of only 2 current (herself & daeghnao) female members on here and 1 of the 3 or 4 in the total life of this forum.

Over-attentive males seem to latch onto our female members in an all too apparent "ugh . wooooman .. must propose to her" way (and probably not just on this forum!) and it's fun to see the way Aly deflects all the offers in such a polite way :)

Congratulations Alison !
I hope that you will be not similar to 'Iron Lady' (Margaret Thatcher - remembering her ?) :D

I think I am right in saying that the Thatcher household was Commodore. Mrs T only pretended to like Spectrums so she could be seen to be one of the people.

There was a rumour that her husband Denis did use to hack about on a Tangerine Microtan. Apparently he was real hardcore and just used the hex pad.

Wow, I'd never call my son Denis - at least I'd make it "Dennis".
Note how close the letter 'D' is to the letter 'P' :)

Hehe, well, now when you are an administrator, you should be aware that all passes on you have to go thru us moderators first... :D

Congrats Aly, you've really stepped up to the moderator role, and I have no doubt you'll prove to be an just as competent administrator! :wink:

Yep, she is the perfect choice for the job going by everything I have seen of her on the forums. A sound working knowledge of the Atari ST platform and a dedication to it I can only marvel at.
