End of my moderation

Post by Ayu »

Dear Dharmawheel members, good friends and opponents as well,

thank you for having me for so long time as moderator. I end my volunteer service here now, because my life is changing and I have to focus on some other work.

I learned a lot and I feel gratitude to the collective wisdom of this board.

Take care, _()_
Ayu
For the benefit and ease of all sentient beings. :heart:

Oh man, thanks for all the hard work!

I hope everything else is good and you still check in on the board, be well Ayu!

I've enjoyed your pithy, down-to-earth, and dare I say "well-moderated" interjections. I hope you'll continue to contribute, but even if you don't, thanks for all you've added to the "collective wisdom" around here!

Yay, finally!!! :jumping:

Private joke, sorry...

I think you've done a great job, Ayu, and maybe also attracted a few more non-Anglosphere Buddhists to the place. DW needs more diversity, I think, otherwise the forum risks becoming a club. I hope if there's a mod who replaces you, he/she will keep that in mind.
