You may find there are several users here on EF whose identities can be traced purely on account of what they say about themselves . Maybe they do that knowingly or maybe they are not aware of how obvious it is .

But that’s not the same as assuming you have their permission to post their picture here without asking .
Keep up the good work and you will soon be escalated to blackboard monitor.

Not with the Editor Bob account, there are several others.
Please, fatmanfilms, could you clarity what you meant here? Does Editor Bob have several accounts? If yes, which are his others, please? Thank you.

Depends on how it was done. If it was a simple link to his photo the local server, there's nothing wrong with that.

Like this gif, for example, it will disappear as soon as the picture is no longer available on giphy's server (possibly with a few hours lag until it's removed from the various chaches):

Maybe we shouldn’t speculate on EB’s other avatars ?
(tsk tsk FMF, that wasn’t for us to know)
Just let him be and have some space?

Come to think of it, he looks more like a she here, reminding me of Conchita Wurst/Sausage:

I'm not fmf but I'll offer some clarity.

To my knowledge, Editor Bob was the only name used by our previous administrator. If he did have another account that still exists, that account doesn't have any more access than you do. You can see on the showgroups page who the mods, spam deputies, and admins are.

EB is no longer with the company that owns EF. I won't speculate as to why because I simply don't know and I don't think it's appropriate. He told us in Mod Zone when his last day would be and left it at that. To me, even if he left the company on good terms it only makes sense to eventually remove that account and get people accustomed to dealing with the new admin.

MichaelHarold is the name of our new admin (obviously as "real" of a name as Editor Bob). He seems like a nice guy, just a bit quiet so far in the open boards.

I'm not a peasant, sir. He can look down on those, though...

Oh, and I really have no curiosity about the new admin...I don't think it will make any difference.

I was talking about administrator accounts, the groups can be found here. (I had to go to Tom's mod shakeup thread to find the list )

He did. And I agree with you, speculations aren't appropriate. He will be missed.

Re: Welcome Aboard, Michael Harold

I was hoping this thread would offer some more welcoming words to the new editor. Instead, we’re still engaged in dissecting the great shake up of June 21 on various threads. Unless some one wants to divulge more background info on why that shake up happened, it’s time to move on.

Perhaps this thread will motivate the new editor to introduce himself and offer a few words of his plans to keep this board a positive place for English speakers in Switzerland.
