Hearty congrats and I couldn't think of a better person to bestow the honour on, thoroughly deserved love the pic to, although that mask on the wall looks a bit creepy, reminds of a Dr Who episode from the 70's he he he showing my age now.

Awesome brudda Jon. You are already a priceless asset to this community, all this does is make it official. It's a no brainer brudda. Congraulations to you my friend, but a bigger congradulations to UU for having him on the staff. SCORE.

Same here. Being a moderator is not a glamor job, it can be a lot of hard work.

Sadly, Jon tried to persuade the rest of us to be more restrained in our moderating efforts. We had to fire him so we could continue to be evil.

Nah, just kidding. We're still going to be evil. In fact, we recruited Jon so we could play good cop/bad cop instead of just bad cop/bad cop... ;)

Srsly, what a great bloke to have on board.

Thanks to everyone who has volunteered to help us keep an eye on things. Consider yourselves lucky that someone else drew the short straw this time. Your turn may come.

That's precisely the attitude the Boards need. Unless someone bashing one another directly, let threads live on -- who cares if they make points back and forth ad infinitum...who cares if the same thing is said by many who take the time to post --- no one forces anyone else to click and read the thread.

Great philosophy, Jon. Welcome to Moderation!

I havenít posted anything for awhile. Iíve devoted myself to finally putting an end to a long running personal project Ė then catching up on everything else I neglected in the interim.

Excuse me for reviving a thread on what is now old news, but in coming back on the forum I wanted to first add my congratulations to the long list. Itís easy to see reading through all this that Eugene Ukulele is a pretty well liked guy around here.

Iíve always thought he was one of the most underappreciated musicians of any kind Ė any setting. Jon has excellent skills on the Ukulele, and a great voice, but itís that god given talent to sit there alone with a little 4-string instrument and really put over the songs he sings that make him so special. Itís a talent I know we all envy a bit.

Now heíll be a moderator on Ukulele Underground?!?! The manís legend continues to grow. From the little Iíve seen since this happened heís doing a fabulous job.

And one final note. I donít think Rick and the other Mods are truly evil Ė they just like to pretend that and scare us. All good cops!
