Please join me in thanking our moderators for all their work in the Twins Daily forums. Twins Daily has a number of unique aspects that separates its coverage from other media entities, and among them is the caring community that provides information, insight and thoughtful opinions in our comments. Our moderators make all this possible. And it is NOT easy.About six months after Twins Daily launched, we were close to shutting the forums and comments down. We faced the same challenges that other social media face, and we were losing the battles. We were determined to make this a place where "Don't read the comments" did NOT apply, and would rather lose the ability for feedback than cave to constant trolls and bickering.

Glunn was our first moderator, and has been the leader of the group since then. They wrestle daily with establishing fuzzy boundaries, considering historical reputations, and converting difficult commentators to become some of the most valued in the community. The job is constant, it is tireless, it is nebulous and it is often thankless.

Today, let's change that last one.

Thank you, Glunn, ashburyjohn, ChiTownTwinsFan, snepp, string bell, twinsnorth49, Riverbrian, nicksaviking, diehardtwinsfan and USAChief for all your efforts. You make this a place we all want to come to every day. We could not appreciate you more.

Earnestly,
Everyone

once, I started to open up a can of worms, but then I thought about the Twinsdaily Moderators, and I asked myself, "what are you doing?" so I stopped. Thanks!

I appreciate editors and moderators.This site has become a fun community where I like to dip in and sample the ideas and offerings of both writers and commentators and I appreciate the broad presentation styles and opportunities.  

‚ÄčThank you to all the TD staff.

"We were determined to make this a place where "Don't read the comments" did NOT apply, and would rather lose the ability for feedback than cave to constant trolls and bickering."

Mission accomplished. Well done you all.I went all over the place before this and was mostly depressed by the comment sections. Here I look forward to it.Thank you!!Even in the midst of a bad run of baseball you have single handedly made this the Golden Age of being a Twins fan. Of course by single handedly I mean TD collectively.
