Hey everyone...HF's recent growth comes with a big increase in posts and administrivia duties, so the mod staff decided to bring on more support to help HF continue running smoothly. We looked for folks who were online a lot (like all caps A LOT, actually), had the respect of the community, and always participated in the spirit of the community that we try to foster here. Several names came up, but we settled on Cannibal and NCPatrick...please welcome them to the HF mod staff!

For the members, they'll be able to handle spam notifications, moving threads into the appropriate subforums to keep things organized, or editing/moderating inappropriate posts. Requests to change usernames will still have to go to angrysparrow, headchange4u or me...but if you send it to them they'll just forward to us.

We're pretty excited to have two more folks to help keep HF the community it has grown into, and hope that you are too.

The HF Mod Staff
Just Jeff, angrysparrow, slowhike, headchange4u, and now Cannibal and NCPatrick!
(And of course attroll when he's not thru-hiking)

Good deal. They seem to be good level headed people which is just what you need in a moderator.

ALL RIGHT! Grats to the new mods and I'm sure you will all be busy. Hammocking is like any other illness, the more people that get it, the faster it spreads. As we all spread the word of the hammock, more people will see the light and convert even more people.

Congratulations to Cannibal and NCP....but, WAIT! Aren't they among those that needed the most moderation? Well, Whatever. I propose that they take their new-found riches and throw a big party for all the HF members. Drinks

that was slick C, masterful planning. Campaign to win the top poster slot and hold it for a while, largely by being the helpful generous soul you are to newcomers. Sprinkle posts throughout with time-stamps from all throughout the day, showing that a consultant chooses his own work hours and play hours. Maybe some back-channel hints, I dunno. Misson accomplished! Well done.

And NCPatrick was the natural choice, if only the last I checked (pause, checking again,...., yep) your "Stone Mountain" video is one of the most popular in the video section.

Seriously though, with the growth of posting on the site I wondered how the gang of four could do all that needs doing. They did too. Thanks for helping out.

DTE - you beat me to it! Cannibal moderating keeps giving me the image of a fox in a henhouse!!! :scared: :scared:

Just kiddin'. These are two good choices and bodes well for HF. Especially since they are buying the drinks!

Which one? ;)

Genuine Draft currently has the only AARN in our house. I'm stuck with only 3 different ULA packs and a couple of old school external frame jobers. See how deprived I am? :D That will be changing, hopefully by the end of summer. Tell you what, come out here and go hiking with me and I'll let you borrow your choice of my packs and any hammock you've been 'dying' to try; except a Clark. Still don't have one of those, dang-it! :cursing:

Come out at the end of summer and I might just have my new Tahe Marine Greenland kayak that I'll let you paddle as long as you promise not to drool too much on it. :lol:

Oh, Since they are now "Working" for Hammock Forums, does that mean they can't win in raffles anymore? (There would be alot of happy campers on the east coast if NCPatrick couldn't win.)

:confused::D:lol:

No? Ok then... :p

The atmosphere of this forum is what attracted me here. The mods do a outstanding job! I love the way that everyone is greeted with a warm welcome. I belong to a couple of other forums. They can not hold a candle to the sense of community and camaraderie found here. Thanks for stepping up to plate guys! Your help is welcome and appreciated as is the efforts of all your fellow mods. Thanks for providing me a escape from the daily grind.
