    @Jaryd Kosari has been a member since 2003, and in that time they have served in a ton of various roles from minion to Director. In addition to their experience moderating for Tar Valon, they brings to the table an impressive amount of experience moderating for other communities as well. Truly an excellently qualified candidate for the position they applied for: Master of the Watch - Moderation.

    However, we had no applicants at all for the Master of the Watch - Interface position, and alternate candidates were not interested in the role. Thankfully, Jaryd was willing to step up and accept some of the responsibilities of that role as well. They will be also taking over the management of the Gatekeepers; this means that the Gatekeepers, Moderators and Discord Operators will all report through this role.

    In light of the increased load, we are renaming the position to simply be "Master of the Watch" with no subheading, and are looking at renaming the "Master of the Watch - Infrastructure" position to something more fitting (we haven't landed on a name yet, leaning towards "Jailor" :lol).

    Please join @Mendo Cath and I in thanking Jaryd for taking on this challenge, and helping to keep our forums running in a healthy and equitable manner.

    Thank you for the opportunity to help!

    My door and heart are open if anyone has thoughts, ideas, questions or concerns about how the public parts of this site are moderated—or if anyone just wants to know more about this Master of the Watch person, that's cool, too. You can shoot me a PM on the boards, you can DM me on Discord, you can shoot a message to the mods email, and/or you're even welcome to hit me up for my phone number and we can chat live if that's your jam.

    I can't promise I will take action (I only just got the role, after all, and I'm still learning what is and is not within my scope of responsibility), but I can promise that suggestions are welcome, that I will hear what you have to say, that if I can offer immediate solutions to complaints I will do so, and that if it's appropriate for me to take your concerns up the ladder, I'll do that, too.

    Basically...

    (Is this gif dramatic? Totally. Do I care? Not even a little, because Aragorn is 10/10 and I'm not passing up the chance. :cheese )
