It's been a blast
As previously mentioned, I'm hanging around for some time to come, mostly in an advisory capacity. However, it would be ill-mannered of me not to make some mention as the site has now been handed over officially.

It's been a wild ride, but it wouldn't have been possible without a slew of volunteers helping along the way. The mods have kept me as much on the straight and narrow, as well as making sure that the threads ran on time wherever necessary, and several have been here longer than I have. Too many names have been and gone over the years, but things would not have been possible without the assistance of this volunteer crew who worked for free to keep a place they cherished.

On the technical side, GBM put a lot of work in in the early days. For the last few years, that mantle was passed to Pedersen and his skills in keeping a server running as it should. Both were invaluable to making sure the posts got to you.

All too often, I've just been the person who paid the bills, whereas all the above did the work. I don't want to neglect one group, though - you, the members. We're here for you to vent, we're here for you to celebrate - we're a community. None of it would have been worth it without you.

The future looks to be in capable hands, so if we want to make the most of it, then where safe get the name of the site out to people you meet, and let's get this site and community dancing more than ever before!

Thanks folks, and I'll be over *there*

You forgot one group - the idiots we deal with at work, without whom there would be nothing to post about.:D

And I think a big thank you to you for helping run this place,and keeping (most of) the riff raff out. There have been some forums where trolls abound,spammers pop up left right and centre,there's snarkiness and bitchiness. That doesn't happen here and that's why it's such an enjoyable place to come visit.Let's hope the new modly beings keep up the standard!

^^^Amen to that!

Thank you RAPS. I can't believe how long I've been here ... 5 years since I stumbled in! This site has been a lifesaver in more ways than one. A place to vent, get and give advice, and a place to feel loved on those days when you can't believe you will EVER be loved. This has been a great community, and please the deities it will continue to be so.

RAPS and Pedersen (who shares my name **) have done a tremendous job keeping the site working. The MODS - too many to mention - keep us on the straight and narrow, often to their disgust. Is there a community for MODS of sites like this??? They probably need it ;-)

Anyway. thanks for the good times and memories and welcome to the new overlord! You picked a great site to sponsor/purchase and hopefully we'll live up to your expectations!

Thank you from me too, Raps. I wondered (after reading Teefies' comment) how long I'd been a member, and on the 23rd of this month it will be 6 years..

I love this community, the way we all comfort and help and support each other, but in particular I thank you because this is where I met Mytical. :love:

I don't have the words enough to thank you Raps. You worked your fingers to the bone to make this place awesome and it shows.

You will be missed but I think after this many years you deserve a break.

Rock on, my friend.

Rock on.

You inherited a good place, and you leave it even better. That's how it should be, but often isn't.
I hope you will have time to post a few stories of your own ;).
