Due to health reasons, Pat Garvey is no longer able to moderate the "Originality and History" forum and has asked for a worthy replacement.
http://www.914world.com/bbs2/index.php?showtopic=325692


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
SKL1
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!

+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.

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

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....

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.

Sheee...oot! blink.gif

I was just looking for who got appointed, not pandering for nominations folks!

It was started 8 months ago, & I'd have thought that somebody would been appointed by the in-crowd by now!

I just had a couple of suggestions for additional O&H topics which should probably be nailed threads based on recurring questions from the membership.

Thanx for the votes of confidence guys, but be careful or I may nominate you! LOL biggrin.gif

This weekend I'm busy playing with our "new to us" camping trailer - the "Lil' Pucker" - so we'll be ready for her 1st vintage trailers camp-out with us next weekend! I had the Westy gone thru & a few things checked & done by my guy Hans, so hopefully all will go well, if slooowly with the 4 squirrels in the engine bay working extra hard towing that 700 lbs of trailer plus all of our gear & us in the Westy!

It just followed us home a couple of weekends ago looking for a good home & caretakers!
Some lady appears to be hanging her head out the back window though! huh.gif

Another nomination prospect would be davep.
Dave is our resident historian.
orthobiz
Brad Mayeur knows the cars inside and out. Runs a repair/restoration business and sells his longs kit, but I'm sure could be an impartial judge for the thread. Nobody has the thread-starting talent of Pat, though.

BTW, did he ever sell Fritz??

I didn't even know we had an "Originality" forum... idea.gif

Should be a small group since most of these are no longer original...

Steve Gaglione personifies the term "original" regarding 914's. Plus he's a great guy. Come on Steve, step up to the plate!

We have a lot of folks with deep knowledge & some who have set-up great 914 knowledge bases - like DaveP's 914-6 site, Jeff Bowlsby's sites, & Steve (don't know his "handle" on here??) who has p914.com (& .net & .org) - which are all go to 914 resources.

Many have areas in which they're the go-to expertise beyond a broad 914 knowledge base, such as Davep on 914-6, gustl on all things Europe/Germany, Dave K on the `73 MY "914 Sport", Jeff B on LEs & Harnesses & everything else he's collected on 914s, Steve/p914.com on colors & what came on 914s in which MYs, George H/AA on all things 914, 916s, etc.; & a bunch of others - including a few of the older members on here who were around as teens/adults when 914s were new & remember stuff from the old days (Paul, larmore, me, others & even Pat G.).

However, many of us have busy careers & other commitments cutting into our available time to act as a Mod of O&H at present.

Might I suggest that there could be a joint set of 2 or more co-moderators, with the others serving as resources to chime in when there is time & something within their scope of 914 expertise as an O&H Experts Panel or something of the sort - similar to what PCA does for their car/model expertise panel?

Frankly, our cadre on here probably knows more than the 914 expert(s) at PCA, so this could build upon that resource.

Just a thought for the Admins to consider - breaking up &/or sharing the O&H Forum Mod duties & adding support folks for them.

I can serve in a supporting role, but am too buried with running my business & other stuff for now to be a solo O&H Mod. Heck, I can't even get my 914 out to work on or get to the shops for resto since 2012 until I get stuff reworked here on our home resto/etc. project! blink.gif

Cheers! beerchug.gif

I think whoever said the above should definitely be on the moderator team poke.gif I've pretty much worn out those nailed topics researching details for my resto. Would love to see that tradition continued and expanded.
