Darin, pandy, Christian J and occasionally myself will all be moderating the new forums. (Thanks very much to pandy and Christian for helping us get where we are over the last month with testing and feedback).


The WDG is a select group indeed, but I wonder if pandy and Christian J might be invited to join.

While I'm in the mood. . . .

:The WDG officially has no preference for browser type, screen resolution, HTML publishing tool or any other means by which HTML may be incorrectly manipulated.

"Incorrectly" looks a bit out of place there.

:Non-browser Specific, Non-resolution Specific

These are easily misread as two kinds of specificity. Actually you're after two kinds of non-specificity. "non-browser-specific, non-resolution-specific"?

What was previously his site has since been taken over by a domain squatter.

Well, I don't have a crystal ball, but we certainly feel like pandy and Christian are part of the official team now that they are moderators. They have contributed to the HTMLHelp community for a long time and they have, and will, certainly contribute to the new forums. These are all great steps.

Before we ever do that, of course, they'll both have to reveal their true identities to the world! ninja.gif

Well, I'm not sure what a better word for it is. HTML is manipulated by web authors every day, but we only care about when they "cheat".

At first I wasn't getting it... but now I see the extra - in there and you're right, it does make a readability difference. This is fixed.

WOW! I can't believe you caught that and Arnoud never did. Actually that was my fault... I accidentally gave him a .com instead of a .net. But I fixed it thanks to you. smile.gif

That spelling error may well be 10 years old! I'm tempted to keep it for nostalgia purposes. wink.gif But I fixed it anyway.

You are a machine! Keep up the great work and I'll keep fixing stuff!

Take care,

John
