A New Tech Admin Joins the SSO

Postby moira finnie » September 24th, 2014, 2:28 pm

Please welcome our new Technical Admin, Lomm!

Image

The generous help of Silver Screen Oasis member Lomm allowed us to come back online after a brief outage the other day thanks to his experienced technical insight. Since he joined our group last year Lomm has demonstrated a friendly and informative interest in classic films and has privately expressed his enjoyment of our site as well as an ability to explain tech issues in clear English. As a result of his ability and his thoughtful responses to our desire to keep this little site alive and well, we asked if he would consent to accept a bigger role by becoming our Tech Admin, which, happily, he has agreed to help with in the future.

Once he has time to look at our site in detail, Lomm may be able to help us to accomplish several of the tech goals that we have been longing to achieve to allow our members a richer experience here.

Please welcome our newest member to the management team and accept our sincere thanks, Lomm! I hope that you will enjoy working with all of us--as well as the ongoing discussions of classic film.

Thank you, Moira, for passing on this wonderful news.

I am truly grateful for the chance to be first to thank Lomm for taking on this task. I have always wondered at the ability of anyone over the age of ten to understand and use the technical skills to best the internet at its own game!

Welcome Lomm, and sincere Congratulations to all of us who will benefit from his addition to the team.

I don't know how Moira did it, but that's an actual picture of me Sunday afternoon, resurrecting SSO. :)

This is wonderful! We're all so grateful, Lomm. We appreciate the contributions of all the administrators. SSO is remarkably well maintained!

Actually, Red, there have been times when we have been hanging on by a thread, krazy glue, and good luck in the past. Achieving more of that "well-maintained" stuff you mentioned will feel so much better (and make things more fun for everyone--I hope). We can only do so much of that stuff on our own without some regular, healthy tweaks to the system.

The New Banner looks fantastic ... I bet Lomm has something to do with it. Thanks for improving our site with a whole new way!

I can well believe it took a while to create, but we're all the beneficiaries of your efforts. It makes SSO really an impressive place to visit, and it should be fun seeing what ideas everyone comes up with for quotes and photos. Thank you.
