Dear colleagues,
Looking back on several years of intensive collaboration, discussions, mutual help and support, and much more, I have decided to resign from the role of ProZ.com moderator. This applies to both Jobs/Blue Board and the forums.

I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincere thanks to all those who – together with all moderators – helped make ProZ.com as successful as it is today. My thanks also goes out to those who made their point in a respectful and factual manner whenever we disagreed.

As you are no doubt aware, ProZ.com Support has taken over moderating ProZ.com jobs recently. Please feel free to contact me if you feel that the experience gathered over more than six years could be helpful to you.

This is not a farewell, as I will continue to be active on ProZ.com – but no longer in the moderator role. See you soon!

Yours sincerely,
Ralf

Thank you for all you did Mar 15, 2009

Dear Ralf, dear friend,


I thank you for all you have been doing in the past 9 years for us all, users and members. It was a pleasure and honor to serve the site at your side in the Jobs and Blue Board area, at powwows and conferences.

Our paths had crossed a long time ago and I'll do my best to make sure they'll keep on running next to each other for as long as I can.

Thank.You.

hugS

Giuliana

I feel sad, dear friend Mar 15, 2009

You were one of the first friends I made through ProZ, so it makes me feel personally sad to see you leave.
Luckily friendship does not end with retiring as Moderatoricon_biggrin.gif

All the best to you and see you soon.

Hi Ralf,

I fully respect your decision but it's so sad to see you resign. That said, you have always been a prime example of professionalism and dedication, and will continue to be... We'll be in touch - I very much hope to see you in Berlin. (And see you around on the site.)

I'm saddened Mar 15, 2009

Dear Ralf,

I haven't been around for as long as you have, but during this time that I've known you, I have concluded that you are one dedicated individual with a very calming influence on forum discussions, especially when the verbal conflict is present. It's been great having you around here , and I will certainly miss your balanced and optimized style of moderation.

Schade... Mar 15, 2009

Dear Ralf,

It's so sad to hear you leave your post as a moderator. I believe the job was demanding, and whatever reason you have to leave, I understand. You were one of the first moderator which I got into contact when I joined Proz. You were very helpful, and one of my favorite moderators to get in touch when I needed help.
I'll see you around on Proz.

Best regards

Yasutomo Kanazawa
