Hello all, this is to let everyone know that I’ve decided to hang up my moderator hat - so goodbye from him, although as a mod I never left the community, so it’s not really a hello I guess
Stepping down just as things seem about to get real busy might not seem the most helpful thing I’ve done as a moderator, but I have to say the rest of the team seemed quite ok to let me go! A bit too ok maybe hehe (though with many kinds words ). I guess it shows their confidence: that the team and the forum are in good shape, which is why I also feel OK to do this now.
Personally it has been a great learning and a privilege to help this community through its early establishment and growth. I had expected and wanted to see us through “launch” but it’s been a long time (as we know ) and I have been feeling the need to step back for a while now. The forum was taking soooo much time and energy I couldn’t continue indefinitely, and in any case, there are lots of other important things I want and need to do. Here and elsewhere.
I hope the recent changes, both adding to the mod team and streamlining the work they need to do will mean I’m not missed in that respect. And of course I’ll still be around - just not reading virtually everything, and not doing moderation, and much less involved in discussions about moderation (which I enjoyed - but were taking more time than I want to continue giving).
So this is just a little announcement to let the community know.
I’ve already thanked the mod team, so here I want to thank everyone in the community for your support and help. I love being part of this community and will still be around, poking my nose in and trying to help out a bit
And now I’m waiting very excited for the MVP!!!
