    ToSeek and Antoniseb promoted to Administrators

    Hi everyone, I just wanted to make an announcement that we have promoted ToSeek and Antoniseb to administrator status on the board. This gives them equal authority to Phil and myself about the ongoing operations of BAUT.

    I'd also like to take a moment to recognize and thank ToSeek and Antoniseb for their service to the forum for all these years. They have both worked tirelessly to keep the peace here, and make it one of the best places to discuss space and astronomy on the Internet.

    Thanks guys!

    This was a great place to discuss Astronomy and Spaceflight before *I* got here. I'm glad to have helped maintain something resembling your vision.

    Congratulations, guys. I hope the extra burden of work isn't too bad--though you've both been awfully hard-working as mods.

    So.. Does this mean I should PM Antoniseb directly? Or are you guys all still waiting for it to 'blow over'?

    Same here.

    Now; who is going to promote Phil and Fraser?

    I'm afraid now that ToSeek is a step ahead because he's now not only an admin, but a verb too.

    Are there reference frames where they were demoted?

    Congratulations

    Makes sense, they have more posts than the BA or Fraser.

    It's a well run place, and this decision is certainly "+" not "-".

    Congratulations.

    I think equal congratulations should be sent to Fraser and the BA, for listening to the proposition and taking action to try it out.

    Unless you're referring to a love child of Fraser and Fazor that we don't know about, consider this a correction.

    Hey, I'm as suprised as you. I refuse to pay support until I see a pat-test though.

    'Gratz TooSeek and Antoniseb. Those are the two mods that I typically bothered when I needed to bother someone about something. Guess I'll haveta try out one of the new guys now so I'm not bug'n the big'uns.

    You forgot to list the regular members.
    And the irregular members!

    Congrats, ToSeek and Antoniseb. That's quite an amount of trust thrust into your hands, a step I know not taken lightly. Good luck, now that the easy stuff will be handled by the underlings, and the rest will be on your plates
