The Prof, known by his partners on this team as merely David, has this week announced to the rest of the moderator team that he is stepping down as a moderator here at stratego.com effective August 23rd. David feels the need to reduce his time commitment to the site as his real life teaching duties once again pick up for the new school year, and we wish him well. For the two-plus years he has been a moderator, going back to the early days of the Justice Committee, the amount of time and energy he has devoted to this site and community has hardly been equalled.

We who are both his fellow MT members and also his friends thank him most sincerely for his stellar service to our game. His unique combination of a love for Stratego, knowledge of its rules, spectacular math skills, and wisdom all make him difficult to replace. As the most senior member of the MT his departure leaves a big hole in experience on our team, and we shall have to work to carry on as well without him. In David's time as a moderator he has been a fair and honest judge and a high moral influence on those around him. He has also been an integral reason for many beneficial changes for the community in that time.

David will continue to act as a special consultant to the MT on certain issues, which will be greatly appreciated.

We thank him most sincerely again for his efforts here on our site. It will be strange not to see his ever-present scout avatar giving his daily comments in the forum. He will be sorely missed by his current colleagues.

His fellow current moderators: Napoleon 1er, Lonello, GaryLShelton, Midnightguy, and gPet0

The Prof,


Sorry to see you go, but I understand you completely.  The team will miss not having your well thought out judgements when it comes to deciding on complex issues of chasing and what is draw refusal or not.  You have also been very considerate and not too quick to judge on someone who might be out of line, but know when someone has crossed the line.  We all need a break from here from time to time and perhaps like what I did, you will return when you feel time permits it.  


Best wishes,

Lol. We were afraid it would start to look like this ;).


I'm sure David is not gone for the site. He has been a worthy adversary in the tourneys around here so I would like to be able to draw him in D1 again next :blink: :P.


Also I will keep woo-ing him until he returns so we haven't seen the last of The Prof :lol: :D

I especially enjoyed my debates w/ The Prof regarding religion. 


I trust he's not a Science professor  :P

Terror made me cruel.
