My pleasure to announce two new Moderators for Spine-Health

Effective today, Jellyhall and Sandi have joined the Moderator team.

Both of them have been long term Spine-Health members. JellyHall has been here for about 3 1/2 years and Sandi is closing in on 5 years..

When I have looked to add members to the moderator team I always look for those members who have over a period of time demonstrated these qualities: Fair, Objective, Compassionate, Firm, Insight, and above all, Helpful to ALL members. Both of our new moderators have excelled on those areas.

Please welcome both of them into to this new position and as always work with your moderators.

    Thank you jellyhall & sandi for taking on the task as moderators which is not always easy as most know. Without you all this site would not be possible.
    Also thank you to Ron, Tam, & Liz for your efforts.
    Much appreciated,
  • Jellyhall, Susabell and Ranger,
    I , like jellyhall have gotten so much out of being a member of Spine Health on both the old and the new forums and look forward to giving back some of what I have learned.
    And yes Jellyhall, we both have a steep learning curve while we learn our way around this side of things. Hopefully , people will bear with us while we do. I'm sure that they will.
