I joined this year and @gali is the first member I knew. Always ready to help promptly. I almost thought she was Scott's double! Thank you very much for your service @gali. You've made transitions for new members easy and fun.
Thank you @gravy for your contribution to making OBC a reality.

You both are forever honored in our hearts.

Scott wrote: 24 Jun 2022, 11:02 With the increase in workload to moderate the forums and provide fast customer service to the thousands of new members joining the website every day, it is time to make some changes to the way the forums are moderated and maintained. While in some cases this means creating new positions and hiring new people, in other cases it means saying goodbye to others. This week both gali and Gravy have decided to resign from their positions administrating and moderating the community here at

Of the over 3 million members we have today, gali was one of the first 50,000 to join the website. She joined in 2013, nearly 10 years ago. At that time, I had two different 'day jobs', so to speak, bartending in two different restaurants to make a living, while running OnlineBookClub for no pay on the side. Gali provided indescribable help in countless ways over the years in various changing roles that evolved over time as OnlineBookClub evolved and grew over the years. OnlineBookClub would not be what it is today with gali.

Gravy joined the website in August 2014, and was one of the first 100,000 to join this website. August 2014 was just a few months before I finally give up my day jobs and went full time at OnlineBookClub. During the latter part of Gravy's first year here, I was working 80 hours a week at OnlineBookClub, sometimes pulling all nighters, and still just barely making ends meet. There was a time during 2015 I remember going down with my two little kids to the Coinstar machine at the bank to turn in my spare change to put together the last few dollars of rent on the due date because that was literally the difference between paying my rent on time that month or not.

Most startups fail . Quickly. There was many times it looked like that was where we were headed. It is not a figure of speech when I say that without gali and Gravy OnlineBookClub probably wouldn't even exist today--and I might be homeless.

I want to both personally and professionally express my deep gratitude to both gali and Gravy for everything they have done. I look forward to getting to enjoy your participation in this community as valued members who themselves get to enjoy the funner more relaxed side of things, rather than perhaps having to see OnlineBookClub as work or a job. You both deserve all the best of everything. I want you to enjoy and see the best side of this community that you helped build.

I ask everyone in this huge friendly wonderful community to please take a moment to join me in giving a huge loud thank you to @gali and @Gravy for all the help they have provided over the years, including but not limited to moderating and administrating the forums and community.

Thank you, gali! :tiphat:

Thank you, Gravy! :tiphat:
Thank you Gali and Gravy! Anytime I have had a question you have both been quick to answer and help me out! I wish you both the best and I will miss having your guidance!
