    I am very excited to announce that we have 4 new additions to the TFO Mod Team. For various personal reasons, some of our existing mods haven't had as free time to spend online. As a result, we've been running VERY lean as far as mods go. We were way overdue for bringing on new volunteers and I apologize for that.
    We should be back on track now though. These 4 individuals are already great assets to the TFO community and I know they will be great additions to our existing Mod Team.
    Please afford them the same respect you would give me. They are 100% volunteer and they are here for the love of the hobby - not to ruin anyone's day.
    Please welcome Jaizei, Wellington, Tortadise, and mctlong to our fantastic team of moderators.
    I would like to thank all 4 of you for donating your time to making TFO a better place.

    Thank you to the additional Fab Four! And thank you ALL volunteer moderators for doing this and helping us members. Tortoises and turtles everywhere are grateful too, I am sure, because now their keepers can be less clueless. Knowledge is power! : )

    Thanks! I love TFO! Its more than a forum. Its a community. Everyone here has been very supportive of me and my tortoises. For that reason, I am very happy to volunteer my time and help out in any way I can to keep this site running. :)

    Couldn't agree more :)

    I gotta admit, seeing "wellington" written in blue instead of green will take some getting used to ;) hehe
