Admin Switchover - Introducing walktall
« on: January 25, 2014, 12:38:10 pm »
It is with great pleasure that I introduce walktall as the forum's new administrator.  ;D

Unfortunately, I've got a tunnel to get through until mid-June in the form of exam preparation; I feel that I won't have the time to put in what's needed to move the forum forward, and to keep it the thriving community it is.

Therefore, walktall has kindly agreed to take the reins until then.

For now, I will remain admin on our website, Twitter and Cacheface accounts, (which require less input), but this may also change at a later point.

I'd like to thank you all for your contributions and support, you've been brilliant, and I very much look forward to resuming the role in late June.  :)

Don't worry, though - this isn't a goodbye! I'll still (for now) visit the forum as regularly as I do, and even during the busier period I aim to visit at least once every couple of days, to keep up to date and join in any discussion. Let's keep the forum as active as we have done!

I'm confident walktall will do a superb job... he will have the power very shortly. For me, it'll be interesting to be back on the other side.

Give walktall a welcome in to his new role on this thread :)

Don't remember seeing the position advertised, when were the interviews held.

Griff, good luck with the exams, just remember the old saying "All work and no play... "
No harm in having a break and popping in to the forums!
(Probably do you good, too.  ;D)
I have a Geocaching problem...
Work gets in the way!

If it makes you feel any better, you'll be my next choice - went for walktall because he's been involved longer with the forum  ;)

Thank you  ;D Yes, that's indeed what I'll do  :)
