    Maybe I'm not the right guy to be moderating this forum.

    I've made a lot of mistakes, and herding the cats is beginning to get old.

    I'll tell you fellers this though......I don't want to hear anything else about a certain YouTube guy as long I live. At the level of stress I'm always under, that might not be long anyhow.

    I've been around interest specific forums for some time. You couldn't get me to be a moderator for all the tea in China!

    Tough job... a no win job. But, not unappreciated by many.

    I'm looking for someone to take the helm.

    Unfortunately, the ones that want the job are unsuited for it. The guy that can do the job well knows better than to take it.

    I don't feel its your responsibility to find a replacement, skipper. I could never man the helm.

    Exhale, turn off the pc. Fix your saws on the bench. Regroup. There are quite a few guys here that enjoy
    the knowledge you have to share!

    Sometimes life throws things at us... we’re all ment to be able to just deal with it. But.....

    it helps if there’s a helping hand/ a shoulder to lean on.. so to speak...

    I’ve seen you do a grand job all on your own hearding us cats...and I have no complaints..

    You need others to help share the load... your the person that needs to choose, those to help you..
    it’s hard to make a choice of who to ask. And who excepts the offer..

    My answer is choose many and moderate the moderators. .......;)

    i see your difficulty randy. your name and brand has in a way become synonymous with OPE forum. i live in a very small town and work for myself. reputation is everything, and i dont hang around people that will reflect poorly on me. i feel as though youve been about as even handed and patient as possible with us knuckleheads. i do honestly think that the overall intent of the group here is good, we just may not express ourselves in an appropriate way. case in point, you see some of the chit @tree monkey posts? dudes crazy...

    Mastermind, You probably need to do like I do where I let the moderators of the forum that I am an administrator of. That is when I get so fed up with things that I take a vacation from the forum. OH when I do come to to it, it can be a mess to clean up.

    As you said no one that can do the job wants it. They know better and if I knew it ahead I would had not volunteer either. But at least my biggest problem is all the spammers that must be barred.

    Being a mod takes alot of time unless you've got a good group of mods that's all on the same page, and they all do their job. Everybody gets busy with life and that's understandable, it seems sometimes people are reluctant to pass the torch when life happens for an extended period of time.
