    Stepping Down As Admin

    Well I never thought I'd be typing this out....

    For quite some time, I've been considering my position here on the board. I've found that life is taking me away the WAB more and more.

    With Parihaka's well-deserved promotion to Admin, I am going to step aside and allow the "next generation" of Staff members to assume the reins.

    This is not goodbye, I'll still be checking on the board and posting etc, and who knows maybe I'll return to the Staff as my circumstances dictate as Julie has graciously done over the years.

    It's been a genuine honor to be a member of the WAB Staff and I will always be proud of my service with some of the finest people I've ever met.

    You have to do this now. Months after I can no longer drink. Not before when I had my entire collection to celeberate your retirement! Damn kids.

    But still, wow, this feels a shift in the reigns. Iain would do a fantastic job but you and I Joe were 2nd generation, this feels like the 3rd. Not a bad thing but damned, we are old.

    I know Julie, you were a mod before I cam aboard ,,, and it feels an entire shift is happening now. No, Iain will do a fantastic job but it feels like WAB just did a fundamental shift. I can't explain it. I felt it when I came on board but it feels exciting. It feels new. In short, Iain, you've just got shafted.

    Remember guys, you're still around with most of your former functions still intact, Tops will still be zooming around (a little birdy tells me certain attractive outside interests are taking up more of his time) and of course Ironduke is still doin the business. And Colonel, yep you're right, I'm a damned idiot.

    Gonna miss T.H. but he knows probably much better than I that WAB is an insidious disease which gets in your blood and never quite leaves. The Kiwi will be great so I fear not on that end.

    Wow. Indeed, end of an era. TopHatter, thankx for the years of time and effort you've put into the place.

    Pari, this makes no difference, we're still gonna get on your case for no better reason other than because we can...

    Abusing Yellow is meant to be a labor of love, not something you sell to the highest bidder.

    Speak for yourself.

    I'm gonna be smooching Pari's rear end so much that all the sheeps around the world are going to be jealous.

    Loss... and a BIG one. First the Colonel and now you Top.
    I really don't understand why you fossils can not keep the balance with the "outside entertainments" and WAB when gracious gentlemen like us are still ready to piggy back your combined royal asses. Just hope Matt continues till we last.

    Top it up now.... a Kiwi of an Admin with a penchant for Virgin Sheeps?
    God bless us and the WAB.
