And thank you for all that you've done over the years. This site couldn't be where it is without you.

The Claw!

And Dipsy you've been a great mod. Now you can just hang around in the blues corner.

Haha for selfish reasons I'd love to see you keep hunting for cheaters, because I love how brutal you are. I feel like all cheater hunters should have "The Emperor is not as forgiving as I am" in their sigs.
You don't know what I'm thinking...because I don't know what I'm doing.

Congratulations to one and all.
To those leaving some responsibilities behind: well done on maintaining this excellent site.
To those taking on new responsibilities: we look forward to the continuing high quality that makes this site and community so great!

super_dipsy wrote:Two good pieces of news!

First off, after 10 years of dealing with the development side of the site, I am passing the baton over to Nopunin10did! He has kindly agreed to take over responsibility for the code, and I am sure this will be good news for the site. Nopun will bring a fresh outlook which I think will make the site even better than it is now.

Second, Aeschines has agreed to become our newest site Moderator! With wokr and real life committments sapping our Mods team, we are always on the lookout for good people and Aeschines fits the bill. He will continue his PbF efforts, taking the lead there now that Nopun has taken on the development stuff, and will also act as a general Mod for the site.

Thank you so much you two for volunteering. This is how this site continues to be the best, through the dedication of its volunteers.

Thank you, Dipsy, for all your efforts. They are so much appreciated.

And thank you, Aeschines and NoPun, for stepping to the plate.

Dipsy leaves behind some big shoes to fill, and I'm very thankful that he'll be sticking around in an advisory capacity for a while.

One change we're looking to make will be to separate the roles of Site Administrator into two different roles: Head Site Developer and Head Moderator. I'm taking on the Head Site Developer role, but we're still ironing out the details for who will handle the Head Moderator side. That was frankly too much for any one person, particularly a volunteer, to take on. I'm amazed at how Dipsy was able to handle those roles simultaneously for so many years.

I hope everyone will give me some time and patience as I step into this new challenge. Thanks for bearing with me, and thanks for this opportunity.


Probably Aeschines can fill that...

Unless he's the forum Mod.

lol what? You're volunteering Aeschines to be Head Mod?
NoPun is probably looking for someone who already has experience being a global mod here.
Probably someone who would rill a role similar to what rick.leeds did--one step in authority above a global mod.

I think the King of Karma, TheCraw, should be considered for a mod position, he did an amazing job as a global mod back in the day.

Thank you NoPun and Aeschines for stepping up to the plate :)

Last but certainly not least, THANK YOU DIPSY FOR ALL YOUR SERVICE!!!

Ah, you mean rick.leeds like?

Yeah, TheCraw is fit for the job imo.
