HSD Users,

We have two changes to announce today. The first, and to some of you very exciting change is that a Parliamentary debate forum has now been added to the Forensics section. You can find it located just below the Lincoln-Douglas forum. All discussions about Parli, in all leagues and levels, can take place in this area. We hope to have some interesting discussions about a fast-paced form of debate that is new to many HSDers. Any questions can be directed to either myself or the debate moderators.

The second announcement is a bit sadder -- one of our favorite Everything Else mods, rubyslippers2, will be stepping down from her position. Tell her how much you love her and that she shouldn't disappear entirely!

As always, if you have any questions or comments, please don't hesitate to PM me or any of the moderating staff. :)

Thanks guys! I'll hang around, I promise. I was just getting too busy to juggle EE moderating AND admin jobs for the family. It was awesome though!

:( Aww Leanne. It's weird seeing your lovely (formerly yellow) fomerly green name in blue. But it looks good in blue too. ;) We'll miss ya! Come back and visit us!

Announcing two new additions to our debate moderators --

Peter Voell will be returning as a debate moderator for a while! Be nice so he sticks around. ;)

And brand new to our staff, Halogen is now a debate moderator as well! We're super excited to have both of these guys on board and actively working in the debate forums.

Feel free to PM any of our mods or myself with questions at any time. Help me welcome our new staff members to the team!

Welcome back, Logic! [Well, you're still Peter Voell. But both names look better in red. ; ) ]

Halogen? Awesome! Congrats, though I must say I'm not used to seeing your name in red. I wish you well in your mod-ship, and may the other mods learn Halogenese!

Are you kidding me? I've lived with him for fourteen years and I still don't get it.
