    Default Journey's End

    Dear friends,

    After nearly 11 years as Chief Admin of Planet Skaro, I have made the decision to hand over stewardship of this fine forum to a triumvirate of Chief Admins - if the form of Si Hunt, Si Hart and Steve Alexander (aka Bob McCow).

    I have one reason for making this decision - My life has moved in such a direction where I barely have time to post, let alone steer the forum. After a few discussions among the staff, Si, Si and Steve came to a decision to run the forum jointly. I think that they have some exciting ideas, and I look forward to seeing what they do.

    Staying on as an admin is Lissa, and Philip Ludlam will continue as Technical Admin. Richard Brinck-Johnsen will continue as a Moderator. And while I'm stepping down from the Chief Admin role, I will stay on the PS staff, joining Richard as a Moderator. These changes are with immediate effect

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for all the support and all the laughs that they have given me over the years.

    With thanks,
    Anthony
    Former Chief Admin

    Hi Ant,

    Thanks for all your work over the years for the forum; I'm glad to see that you will be staying around on the Moderators team.

    And good luck to Si and Steve as the new Admins, all the best to you guys.

    Vive La Forum!

    As one journey ends, another begins!

    Again, thanks Ant. I have a lot to thank this forum for - and all the wonderful people I've met on it and because of it. Let's keep it going!
    Pity. I have no understanding of the word. It is not registered in my vocabulary bank. EXTERMINATE!

    Thanks Ant for everything!

    Now begins the new reign of terror and...
    Oh hang on, no, that's not it.

    I've just got my handcuffs and my truncheon and that's enough.

    We're doomed!

    Thank you, Ant, for all you've done to make us all happy here - 11 years!? Wow, it seems like only yesterday. I'm sure the good work will continue.

    Those faces!
    When I was a guard at the tower I used to see them everyday. They are Si, Steve and Si, the three who rule!

    Thanks for running such a great forum Ant. Theres no way I'd have been able to set up something so vast when I was a teenager (ok, so computers were more about games in those pre-internet days, but you know what I mean).
    You've done a fantastic job.

    As for the three who rule; I know they will do a great job (although I'm not so keen on the topless Jesse Spencer bakes cakes with Si Hunt sub-forum idea)

    Really? That was popular with at least two of the admin team

    That forum has been around for years, albeit hidden.

    We'll still be ruling when we look like this:

    I concur with young Mr Grace, Ant, you've done very well! It's really quite hard to imagine the internet without this little PS-shaped corner of it, so thanks, many thanks.
