View Full Version : Simba Appreciation

I just thought I'd post an appreciation thread in recognition of Simba's hard work and dedication. She really takes pride in her work as a mod and she takes it seriously. I don't do this because I'm her husband but because I'm a member and I feel it's time.

Unlike anyone else I get to see behind the scenes. I see the countless hours of editting, PM's and threads being moved to appropriate forums. Many nights I see her up late watching over the boards keeping an eye on troublesome threads or helping people with problems.

Sometimes her job is thankless but lots of times she will get a thank you from a member when she helps them.

There's a lot more to being a moderator on a board such as Soonet and it takes a special kind of person to be able to take the good and bad and make it into a positive experience for all.

For this, Simba I offer you my thoughts of gratitude and appreciation because without your hard work and dedication to Soonet and our local community here it would be a far different experience.


Thanks,


TMI

Ok in the beginning Simba and TMI and I never got along. Now I've had the privlidge of getting too know them better and I can say they are GREAT PEOPLE. Simba loves her kids her hubby and people but like anyone of us here if she's attacked verbally etc she will strike back and I don't blame her. She is an awesome MOD and because she is friends with a few on here certain others don't like it. TOUGH GET OVER IT! It's your loss.

Thanks SusyQ...

I thought I'd add, that you have to keep in mind that Simba is first and foremost a member here as well. After all she was a member before she was appointed mod.

She not only has countless hours of mod work to do but she also spends alot of time posting as a member, and I often hear her laughing and having a good time with everyone as well as posting her opinions on many topics so she knows both sides of the fence.

Exactly my point she is a member TMI and someone said something about one of her posts and i said WHOA she has a right too her opinion she's also a member. You keep doing what your doing Simba and don't change a thing cause you well ROCK!

I for one have never run a mod down. But I think SIMBA is awesome. I like the way she interacts with everyone and she says it like it is. /ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/beerchug.gif

Simba is the best mod and good friend. Her moderating duties are done impartially, believe me when I tell you that. I didnt get along with her at first either but I realized I was in the wrong and admitted my misdeeds. She is fair and respectful and has an open mind. Good job!!

Myself and Simba have in the past butted heads alot, but we both have found a middle ground with each other and we first learned to tolerate each other. Then Simba realized that I am god, and she now worships the ground i walk on. It is about time !!! lol

Good job simba keep up the good work /ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif

well, apparently you cant.
I still have the unanswerd message in my inbox, I can post screen shots if you would like.

Simba
11-03-2007, 10:00 PM
sometimes pm's don't always get to me. I've had members get mad at me for not answering pm's that I never even got. As a matter of fact this just happened the other day with another member. I'm sure I'm not the only one who doesn't receive pm's that people send. I've sent pm's too that have never made it to someone.

You could have resent it no? If it was that important. I would have helped you out.

It always cracks me up when one member says that they don't or didn't get along with another member. I think that's taking things just a little too seriously. This is just a message board. But anyway, I do also agree that Simba has done a really great job at moderating this board. This site continues to be of great amusement to me.

I can not say if she's doing a good or a bad job since I don't know who is deleting and moving all the threads. Whoever is it is ..is not doing a very good job as far as I'm concerned.

I think that Simba is the best mod that this board has. She's on top of things, knows when to step in and either calm things down or move/close the thread.
I personally have had pm's from her explaining why threads were deleted and I appreciated knowing the reason behind things.

She does a GREAT job. Thanks Simba
