• Welcome to our new Moderators

    Some of you may have noticed the article we published in January about our reaching 100,000 threads within the EduGeek forums, and then posted up some traffic stats that we have built up over the past year. This is something of a milestone, but what we didnít quite go into detail about what just how busy the forums are and how our ever increasing traffic levels require a quite bit more attention than we admins can now spare.

    It wonít be long before we start to hit 90,000+ visits per day now (we are already in the high 80kís most working days) and this level of traffic requires quite a bit of policing and background knowledge of EduGeek and how we work.

    To this end, it gives us great pleasure to announce that we have appointed 3 new moderators to help us out. So please raise an Edu Hobnob and welcome:
    @Little-Miss
    @Elsiegee40
    @Soulfish

    We are in no doubt that they will be a vital part of the EduGeek moderation team and we thank them heartily for their agreeing to help out EduGeek at a higher level.

      Congratulations to the new mods, and thanks for stepping up! And also thanks to everyone who mods already, and runs the site. It's rather good.

      I'm just waiting for you to realise you can edit everyone's messages and add Cumberbatch to them all/change all fonts to purple/add Nyan cat.

      Lady, the first thing I did when I got my Mod powers was perma-ban people who annoyed me. [OK, they acted like butt-monkies and deserved it for posting "adult material"... but I really did it for revenge.]

      Also, remember that time I modded your comments on one of my blog posts? Joke editing people's posts is fun. [Awaiting revenge edit]

      Another fun thing to do is edit posts... but don't actually change anything. Let people wonder what was added/removed.

    Reverse Proxy

    I know that, we used to use them. But that kind of stuff requires a login. The general public won't be able to access that stuff.
