914World.com _ 914World Garage _ Looking for a new moderator for the "Originality and History" forum

Posted by: SirAndy Mar 12 2018, 05:44 PM

Due to health reasons, Pat Garvey is no longer able to moderate the "Originality and History" forum and has asked for a worthy replacement.

Anyone who would like to take over as a moderator, please let me know ...

Hope things will get better Pat!

I am not at all worthy to fill his shoes.
If you decide to have a “hack in the backyard” forum, I would submit

I'd be glad to help (as original owner of a 9/70 build 914 1.7 ) but surely don't know "everything..."


(and also hope Pat's health improves...)

I nominate Tom_T if he will take it on. He seems quite knowledgeable on this topic!

Posted by: Cairo94507 Mar 12 2018, 08:11 PM

My prayers to Pat and his family.

Dave Darling has forgotten more than most of us know...

+1 for DD!

This person don't need to have all the answers. They just need to care about Originality and History and help make sure everything posted there is following the rules.

Even better would be someone who posts topics for everyone to talk/think about. Actively seeking out and collecting information.

We need a passionate seeker, more than a guru. wink.gif

My problem is that I'm just buried with work right now (owning a small business means no relief), aside from deep into a historic 1921 home renovation/resto.

But I would be willing to team up with Dave Darling if the two of us can cover for each other, or as part of another duo or trio of O&H buffs if Dave can't.

PS - Other great & helpful O&H guys are: Tom - TJB/914, & Jeff Bowlsby, & Pat's old buddy in Cincinnati & OO 70 914/4 Paul (I'm half-zymering on his screen name) - & I'm also blanking right now on our member's name who did the 914-6 Registry.

It makes sense to have a coupla-more folks with varying sub-model/year expertise as O&H Mods to cover the bases better.

Cheers!
Tom

Also, it's probably better to put your well wishes for Pat at his original post which Andy linked above, & here again below:

http://www.914world.com/bbs2/index.php?showtopic=325692

While I don't know if Pat will look back at it again with all that he's got going on, he probably won't look at this thread at all.

That's why I'm probably not a good person for that role.

But he's got a whole 914Club to run. How would he ever find the time?

I think it important that someone do this that ha NO commercial interest, even though people like Dave have a lifelong love for the 914

I think anyone with a commercial interest who doesn't think they could be an impartial moderator would disqualify themselves.

Posted by: Edward Blume Mar 13 2018, 01:18 PM

I would do it although Jeff Bowlsby would be a much better person to do it, along with TomT. These guys are both tremendous resources that could each do a lot to take our cars into the twilight of their years.

What does an admin do? Jump in a post a lot of stuff? I can do that....

Would all 3 of us do it and call it a committee?

Thanks for the link!

Agree that there are some really good names mentioned here (Garold, Jeff B, Tom) Far far more knowledge and experience with these cars than most of us. I'm not fully sure what is required of the role but if there is an opportunity to help with the admin (while one or two of the guru's cover the knowledge part) I'd be willing to share some of the admin piece. I have a passion for originality and would love to see the forum grow.
