How many GasBuddy Moderators are there and what are their member names???

Also, they should have a moderator listing on the homepage along with a short bio (if they like).

From Don's reply, I'd say that Dave or DJ must have been the one using the GM account pretty much solo for most of my first two plus years. The responses were too consistent for multiple users.

I'd bet Dave's solo usage started when the "GB Moderator" email account was created with the rest of the private messaging. That was already here when I started, but it was fairly new. Dialog with the mods no longer had to take place in the threads and this probably explains why TBTU and SAWSI are not what some remember them to be back in the good old days.

Read the official reply folks. GM is not a person; it stands for GasBuddy Moderator.

I don't think GM has been a moderator for a long time. In my opinion, he was one of the best moderators. He actually did stuff and listened to the membership.

I thought GM passed away since I didn't hear from him.

“I don't think that was GM's actual birthday.”

I don’t think so either; just joining in the fun here.

GM was originally the "GasBuddy Moderator" account, there were a number of people who have used this account over the years, including Dave (DJ) but he is no longer employed with GasBuddy. We consider this account retired but it still gets used from time to time.

These days we're now swinging toward using personalized moderator usernames.

According to his profile, GM joined GasBuddy on 16 October 2003 at the age of 85.
It is quite possible that he has passed on; he would now be 94 if still with us.

When GM posted on the Columbus forum he shared his real first name as Dave. Although he hasn't posted since at least late 2009 I still have him listed as a buddyGM

As far as I can recall the "GM" account was the "General Moderator" account.

And don't forget Don. The only time I have seen Don's name is on MSL edits.

I am waiting for those new moderators to come on board....

QT, EZ, and F something. (Just kidding on the last one).

I haven't had to engage a moderator in quite some time so I don't know who is here and who isn't....

Now that I am back home and can check some notes, there is AL, JF, TD, and JM in addition to the ten listed below. I do not know how many of the 14 total are currently working for GB.

As recently as late February, Brendan (BB) responded to a question I sent to the GB Moderator account.

I guess she is not on that much, and I've must have missed her since I wasn't involved in actual discussions too much at that particular time as a Gasbuddy member

Yes I heard of all of those guys. I also remember TB and GM, a "yet-unknown" JC (maybe only for classifieds), and literally found a WP.

Can any moderator out there comment on/confirm this please?

Right off hand I know of JT and DC (founders), CC, PD, DH. I know there are 3 or 4 more at least. GM was a Mod but I believe he is no longer with us.
