Bob has plenty on his plate. It's going to take him a while to get focused and have the mojo flowing and I'll gladly be an asset during the transition.

The "deputy admins" do a great job of dealing with the spammers, and my role has been to take care of back-end ops like backups and server monitoring, handling the TOUs, and occasionally getting a board back on-topic.

It isn't a full-time job by any means, especially since we decided to leave the political boards to their own vices and devices. So, while most of my time has been and will continue to be devoted to iHub but I'll continue to help out here at least until Bob is ready to handle it and/or make other arrangements.

I've been around since '96 and plan to remain, be it as staff - officially or otherwise - or "just" as user.

Dave

Bob congrats!..may SI become an even greater success than in was in its heyday~

Well, in its heyday, if "heyday" is defined as its traffic peak, it wasn't much fun and the signal/noise ratio and resulting quality of content weren't as good as I like.

Though I reserve the right to change my mind, I currently have no aspirations of taking over the world. Instead, I want to grow to whatever size we can without content quality suffering.

Though metric growth (and the resulting income growth) is a high priority for me, I'm not going to push it extremely hard and will not push it to the point that quality suffers. I'm quite content with our being comparatively small (though double our current traffic levels would be nice and achievable) but re-establishing our reputation for quality participants and content is higher on the list.

Best of luck to you, Bob!

I do have one suggestion when you get acclimated and can make some changes. One thing that I like better about I-hub is that you can click on favorite member's name and see all their posts in a list, instead of the set-up here where you must go to their homepage and click on each of their posts one by one.
It is a very time consuming task when I want to read all of a certain person's posts.

again, good luck and glad you're here!

Congratulations, great news. Best of luck.

This is a quality website. Perhaps not the road to great riches, but it's of lasting value. Congrats on keeping it high quality through all the changes.

Thanks for keeping it up! I don't know what we'd do without it.
