Welcome to our new Planet Airgun Staff.
« on: July 28, 2012, 09:29:57 AM »
Many thanks to everybody who has shown an interest in Planet Airgun recently, by applying for a Moderator position on here.

We had a really tough time making a decision to fill the 3 positions available, such was the high calibre and suitability of everyone who applied for the roles.

The members that have finally been chosen though, are................Airsporterman, PontysPikey, and Rabbit Sniper.

So may I take this opportunity to welcome them as Staff on Planet Airgun....I'm sure they'll do their very best to make this forum even more enjoyable for everyone.


If you were one of the many applicants who unfortunately didn't get selected this time, please don't feel disheartened, as more positions will become available as the forum continues to grow, so we would love to see you apply again in the future.....we just wish would could have given a post to everyone this time, but that was just not an option.

I have to declare here and now, that I 'threw my hat into the ring' (so to speak) not expecting to be even shortlisted, never mind be selected for one of the positions, such is the quality and calibre of the guys on here, many of which I am certain, deserve to be recognised for their contribution to this fine forum at least as much as me and in some cases probably more than me.

So you can imagine my surprise when Gareth informed me I had been selected, my first reaction was one of shock, the second was surprise, the third of jubilation and the fourth was regret at the thought that I may have deprived someone more deserving of their opportunity to help with the forum.

My other concerns was that of what others may think of me, especially my mates, some of whom I believed deserved this more than I!

All of that was overcome by the gratitude and awe I owe to both Gareth and Iain for entrusting me with this position, I don't envy them the difficulties they must have had in reaching their final decisions to entrust others to assist with the running of their fine forum, both having invested considerable time and effort in their 'baby' to get it to the position where it is today!
 
I couldn't be happier with the news that my good friend of old P.P. is also recognised , Paul was responsible for persuading me to join the Planet (so you know who to blame!), also Rab Rabbit sniper) whom I have known since joining this forum, both of which whom I am not surprised in the least were selected, as I expected them to be up there with others sadly who are not.

I have enjoyed my time on the forum (probably to the detriment of others who must utter "Oh no not this nugget again"!) and  have been happy to contribute and (I hope)  'entertain' at least a few of you with my true but 'tongue in cheek' view/take on things.

It is my intention to assist Gareth, Iain and my fellow 'Mods' as well as I can to make this forum even better than it already is, that should not be too difficult as we have some great people on here already, the 'stalwarts' (and the 'warts' too, He He He!) the newer people and hopefully new members (who haven't yet joined) with contributions to make also.

I will do my best for the Forum and all Staff and Members to justify my position but I am aware that should I not 'rise to the occasion' (no puns or misquotes please) I will deserve to be RTUd (returned to unit) to coin a military phrase and someone more deserving given the opportunity to shine. (so if you were not lucky this time, you may not have that long to wait!  :o )
I hope everyone will forgive me (a relative newcomer ) and join with me, Gareth, Iain, Paul and Rab to help make this the friendliest, coolest, most laid back and most 'inclusive' shooting forum on the Internet!

The Planet is the place to be, tell your friends, neighbours, relatives, countrymen, guy at the Club, guy at the bus stop, in fact anyone who listens, this is where it's at. (maybe don't let on about Gambo's jokes, they can discover them themselves  ;) )

Just a final thanks to Gareth and Iain for their trust and good luck and congratulations to P.P. and Rab!

Should anyone wish to contact me via P.M. and tell me what they really think of me, I don't and never have held any lasting grudges! I am a good listener and if there is anything I can do to help anyone, feel free to ask! (I don't have any money though!   ;) )

Unlike some, I will not let this go to my head, What the Lord giveth, the Lord can as easily taketh away! I am still the same old Airsporterman, no more, no less, that will never change!!! My task is to serve you and the forum! and that I will do as best as I can!  ;)

Cheers Guys!
