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.
This. It would be great if The Local employees would have some normal communication skills. For example, why didn't Editor Bob post that he is leaving the company and therefore deleting his account?

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.

That's exactly the way I read it.

How do you know he is the new editor and not some temporary admin to handle tasks outside of the scope of the mods?

I explained the reasons in the mod shakeup thread, very briefly:-

I complained about 1 mod, provided some evidence to back up my claim.
I did not ask for any mods to be removed, however did offer my services.

EB had liked my post from 4th March in the Mod coup thread, we were clearly on the same page, so much so that within 30 minutes of my Email, I was a moderator.

The post shows 2 likes yet only 1 name since EB deleted.

https://www.englishforum.ch/3281963-post1079.html

The spin from 1 of the deleted mods that the Mod Coup was a 'mistake', was clearly mistaken. Had he taken it as the warning that it was, I would not be a moderator.

Re: Welcome Aboard, Michael Harold

Welcome Michael Harold.

Slightly funny that the second person found in a Google search for "Michael Harold" is a parole officer.

Michael Harold named Probation and Parole Officer of the Year

Excellent editor / super mod material
