    Congratulations! I appreciate having people who are willing to take on the responsibility of moderator. It is not an easy job either time-wise or decision-wise. The moderators and administrators help keep the site friendly so all can enjoy their time here. Thanks.

    Fabulous news!
    I have long been impressed by Turnabout Vox's good sense, wit, fairness, and empathy.

    Well done, TV!

    Does TurnaboutVox now get his own engraved tankard at the TC bar, own seat in the TC canteen or his name in a different colour?

    Thank you (nearly) all for your confidence in me to do a reasonable job.

    All that seems to be different so far is that I get the letters Sr. in front of my forum title, but I'm assured that I have accrued new 'powers' - to do what I've been doing for the past 3 years over the whole forum. I didn't have moderator privileges on all sub-forums until now.

    It is nice that the TC community has been able to accept a non-musician as a forum moderator and I'm privileged to be able to continue to try to ensure that we have a civil and civilised place to discuss music here. My only qualification is a lifelong obsession with music but maybe that's enough.

    To anyone who has been upset or annoyed by my decisions, actions or occasional loss of cool, I apologise. As I learned in my professional life, you can't exercise any form of oversight or authority without getting into conflict of some sort with other people. I'll keep on trying to learn and try to get better at it.

    That speech brought a tear to my eye. Enjoy your new privileges, T-Vox. Right, I'm off to start a thread entitled 'Wagner and his influence on the far right, in Northern Europe'. That should keep you busy on the moderation front for a few weeks.

    Congratulations, TV - I hope you don't take assuming your new moderator persona...

    '...a violator of his word, a libertine over head and ears in debt and disgrace, a despiser of domestic ties, the companion of gamblers and demireps, a man who has just closed half a century without a single claim on the gratitude of his country or the respect of posterity...' - Leigh Hunt on the Prince Regent (later George IV).

    I do look a little like that, actually. Here's a portrait I had done recently. Handsome, aren't I?
