(Dateline OC.net Palace): The usual crowds milling about the central courtyard of the OC.net palace were startled by the beginning of the kazoo fanfare that accompanies an impending announcement from FrChris.

"OC.netizens everywhere, it is my privilege and honor to announce to all that a new Global Moderator has been found," he began. The crowd was silent with anticipation as FrChris found once again his place on the paper he was reading.

"Veniamin has agreed to serve in this capacity, and we pray that we gives as much honor and service to this position as his predecessor!"

The crowd regained their voices as they shouted:

AXIOS! AXIOS! AXIOS!

Axios! Axios! Axios!
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Now I just need to start gathering my force of OC.net Praetorians so I can instigate a palace coup and declare myself the Emperor of OC.net... ;D

Seriously, though, I'm honored to be selected and hope to do a decent job here. :)

Hmmm.  I'm not so sure about this decision.  Methinks there was way too much incense in the room when the votes were cast.  LOL

Global Mods act as first responders when section mods aren't online.  They also are responsible for the sections that don't have designated mods, such as the Prayer Forum.  Finally, they also hear appeals of mod actions and act in a supervisory role.

It looks like you are still moderating for the Free-For-All section too!  GOD BLESS YOU!  That's really a lot of work!
