As many of you may be aware of from various mentions of this in the forums over the past year or so, Orchidboard has no active administrators left, as they all left the forum a long time ago.

Why does this matter? Moderators have the ability to move/delete/edit posts and threads, ban users and remove spam. All requests regarding a user account (for instance, about being unable to post or login due to a long period of inactivity on OB) can only be handled by an administrator, who has an extra level of access within the forum control panel. Until now moderators (Sonya - Whiterabbit- and I) have had to regretfully tell people that nothing could be done about their account related problems.

As I've recieved several such requests in recent months, something had to be done, and I hope no one objects that I made the unilateral decision to reach out to Marty (the site owner), and be made admin in addition to moderator.

I will do my best to handle all account related problems, but do ask that you be patient. As there are no other admins to teach me the ropes, I don't know how everything works in the control panel, nor the full extent of what can or can't be controlled, so there will be trial and error involved (and lots of lurking on the vbulletin forums to find answers).

Thank you, Camille! That is a lot of additional responsibility for you to take on, and I'm very grateful that you were willing to do it and able to get permission from Marty.
