Thanks for all your hard work on the site. I'm (and many others, I'm sure) very grateful for all the time and dedication you've put into this place. I'm sad to see you go, but it's understandable - eventually we all do move on to bigger and better things. I know you said you're not leaving entirely, but all the same - best of luck to you and whatever future endeavors you pursue.

Wow, for as long as I can remember you've been owner. I'm kind of sad to see you go but I totally support your decision. I will miss you as the site owner and head admin, but I have a question. Who will be the new owner?

First of all, I'm not really good at goodbyes, so all I have to say is goodbye, and we will miss you.

As for who will run the site, my first guess would be The Satellite. However, none of that really  matters, since PureZC is a conspiracy and the real person pulling the strings is Shigeru Miyamoto, who used his puppet accounts to ban himself so nobody would suspect him! It's brilliant, I tell you, brilliant!

Hey LtM, seriously, thanks for everything. I know it's been said already but you've been here for a long, long time (me too at this point) and have always been extremely personable, level-headed and optimistic. This site legitimately could have just disappeared or collapsed from the inside out after WB's passing, so just know that you helped keep a community alive through your character and determination.


So, again, thanks for everything and good luck on whatever life brings your way. I have no doubts that you'll be successful!

I've known a few webmasters in my time - and seen how much they do that goes unnoticed. It's definitely one of the top "if you do the job right, nobody says anything" occupations. Unless a thing like this comes up heh, so as long as it's here, thanks for helping provide the number one place I spend way too much time at. :P

Also, to whoever's in charge now - any chance I could get my home address unblocked again? I finally got in by proxy, but a number of functions are missing, including post formatting/user control panel/messages/etc.

Whoops. I made that change after moving over the server data. Should hopefully be resolved now. :)

So, regarding the "who's in charge" question, I'd like to offer a little bit of clarification for everyone. Currently, our three admins, Russ, The Satellite and myself have a fairly equal responsibility for the site. Any questions or concerns that need admin attention could be directed to any or all of us. I don't think there needs to be a single "leader" for things to operate smoothly. For the time being, LtM is still the site's owner and the one "keeping the lights on." I'm also embarking on a strong effort to become more acquainted with the coding of the site and learn the skills necessary for basic maintenance and bug fixes, but forgive me if I'm a bit of a slowpoke there. LtM is still offering basic support on that front, particularly from issues arising from the recent site updates, but will gradually be withdrawing from that, hopefully as I learn enough to take some of that stuff on. However, it would still be ideal if you posted bugs in the Site Bug Topic, not to LtM directly.
