Thread: Goodnight and Goodbye RTF

  1. #1

    Default Goodnight and Goodbye RTF

    Hello RTFers.

    Tonight is my last night as admin for the RTF. As you've already seen, in just about an hour we're closing the board down and handing the keys back to Chris and his new team. It's been seven years since we first took the helm of the RTF and while we had some issues along the way, I'm proud of where we started and where we came. We survived two major migrations, countless upgrades and patches, and who knows how many server moves we made along the way until we found the right mix for the board, and oh my has it grown.

    I'll be around here and there. Those of you who want or need to reach me can always do so at our company website - www.dntmedia.com (I had to get in one last shameless plug). It's been an honor to guide this magnificent board for the better part of a decade and I thank all of you for taking the changes we made in stride... some of you were a little easier than others but what else is new.

    For the last time as "the man behind the curtain", thank you all and hug your dogs.

    Thank you I guess. I didn't even know there was a "man behind the curtain". When things run smoothly like that, you truly are invisible.
