Thank you, James! I just wanted to stop by and say thanks. I understand your position and respect your decision. As I said in my own stepping down post, the Pets Moderators were exceptional and especially with you as the veteran moderator. It was great to bounce ideas off you and I appreciated all guidance you gave us. Thanks for all you've done for Pets.SE, ...

Thanks for the warm welcome, and thank you Ashley Nunn for serving as our moderator for the first several months of the site!

Congratulations....!!!!

Thank you, I hope to meet the same level of excellence that has been shown by all the moderators of this site.

We do a periodic check on sites to make sure that the moderation team is sufficient for the size of the community and volume of flags. Each site could theoretically get by with only two moderators, we appoint three just so we're certain that the site is covered as moderators go in and out of activity. Moderation is strictly a volunteer effort, and we're ...

Pets.SE will not be left without any moderators. The site is not going to close. I intend to accept the new moderator agreement in due course. There are certainly actions by SE over the past few years that I am less than pleased with, but I truly want this community to continue to succeed. I have been in private communication with SE and they are working on ...

Ashley Nunn Meta Profile Notes: I'm nominating myself because I feel like I might make an awesome mod here. Some of you may know that I used to be a moderator here when the site was just starting, but I had to step down due to extenuating circumstances. I'd like a second shot at helping this site be awesome - I love my pets, I love that we have a place where ...

Thanks for all of your efforts over the years, Yvette! We've been extremely lucky that you've shared with us your extensive knowledge and expertise for such a long time now and long may it continue. When RebeccaRVT and I joined both you and James helped us enormously in settling in and learning the ropes. I want to thank you for all the effort you've put ...

Notes: Why Not Me? Elephant in the room - My reputation on this site is definitely not the highest because until recently I wasn't a heavy contributor. As an active member in Charcoal-HQ I spoke with Yvette just after she became a moderator and she reminded me to participate here. Since then, I've answered and asked all the questions that I can (to what ...

As an original beta participate, but admittedly much less frequent in recent years, I'm sorry to see you go. You were an expert in a site that needed experts here because there is a lot of bad information on pets. I frequently disagreed with you on SO, but here on Pets, I never disagreed with your expertise. You were a great resource here and your ...

Sorry for the bad experience, the situation was dealt with and should now be resolved. The comment was originally posted as an answer. Since it didn't answer your question, it was converted to a comment. The comment was flagged as rude by 2 users. I felt that, although it was controversial, it didn't violate our Code of Conduct, so I didn't delete the ...

I am sorry for you to have had this experience. Please be patient while waiting for your flags to be handled. It's not that they had been ignored, please take into account that Pets is a relatively small site with only 4 moderators and it could take a while for the flags to have been processed in case of none of moderators being online, up to several hours ...

Monica Cellio Meta Profile Notes: Monica is clearly an experienced and knowledgeable pet owner who has been an active participant on the site since the very beginning and has supplied good questions and answers. She's also an experienced moderator from other sites and that helps with keeping the moderation here fair and balanced. We're also not a high ...

Spiderman (Matt) Meta Profile Notes: Matt aka Spiderman, has the highest rep of those who have not had a turn at being a moderator. I have always felt he would be a good fit for the job, during our last look for a Moderator Pro Tempor, he did throw his hat in, but some how I got the job instead of him. He consistently makes good posts, visits the site ...

Everyone else All the candidates offered so far are long time participants with lots of rep. There are many good candidates who have less rep and less time on the site. This site is a community project, it belongs to all of us. Don't let your lack of longevity with the site or lower rep discourage you from offering yourself as a candidate. Currently we ...

I won't give a super strong opinion on this front, except to say that it's actually not as busy as you might think (the other day is an anomaly). My real concern is that Ashley and I are not only the same time zone, we're basically in the same city. That means the coverage outside of those windows (about 6-7 hours) is pretty much zero except for passing SE ...

Apparently not accepting the new agreement is been changed from SE firing me, to me resigning. I have not actively accepted nor declined the new agreement, but I did just receive the following email. Hello James Jenkins I've been notified that you've declined the moderator agreement and I'm reaching out to give you some additional information about the ...
