Stepping Down

Postby CraKinShOt on Tue Feb 03, 2009 7:52 pm

I've stepped down from head moderator indefinitely. Xerxes (with the approval of TC) will become the new Head Moderator.

Unfortunately, I no longer have the time to maintain a presence on here and continue with my work. I have to submit my PhD thesis this September and I'm getting some papers ready for publication next month. As a result I'm working day and night and only have a few hours respite from time to time.

I'm sure Xerxes will do a fine job. He'll be making the decisions from now on.

A shame to see this mate :(

I offer you all the best with ur future endeavours in real life and wish to extend my personal thanks for giving me the opportunity to help moderate the forums. You will surely be missed by the mods mate but Im sure you will still be a regular face here :)

Good luck and Thanks again mate :)

I can only repeat what Kev has said, really.

You have done a fine job of setting up and running these forums, and your absence will surely be noticed.

I wish you the very best in all of your work (particularly your thesis), and that soon we shall have a Dr. Crakinshot around. :)

I'd also like to publicly thank you for giving me the opportunity to take on a moderation position in the first place. I'm honoured to have worked under you. :)

As Kev says, there will always be a place for you here. :)

Dr. Crackers, that has a nice ring to it.

Well done for all the work you've done on the forums, which is enormous. Much appreciated. Good luck for the future.

Congratulations Xerxes! You'll be a fantastic new Head Mod.

Much love and man hugs to Crackin for all the effort he has put into maintaining these forums and i wish you the best in your current field of work.

Big man hugs and hip hip horay! for Xerxes, he's a top guy and we can pretty much expect the high quality moderation which Crackin himself has already laid down.

Good luck to you both.

Well hopefully all goes well and I can finally give my parents a picture for the wall... couldn't be assed going to my last 2 graduations. I think my parents where a little miffed. :(

Unfortunately CUDA is giving me a nightmare of a time at the moment. Sleepless nights and regular burn-outs. Just not able to make the forums and its problems a priority sadly.

Thanks for all your hard work here Crackin. You've definitely kept the forums in top notch condition and always been there ready to jump in at a moments notice. Can only hope you still visit, Thinkers Topic won't be the same without you ;)

Thanks Crakin. In your time as head mod you campaigned to get the forum software updated which we achieved. Thank you for taking UKCS forward and adding a needed professional touch. :D Best of luck managing your PhD, Dr Crakin sir.

Welcome to Xerxes taking on the big head forum role, i'm sure you will add your own angle on things. :)

It's a shame to see you step down, but I'm glad you're putting your life first - best of luck with whatever you're doing.

And of course, congratulations are in order for Xerxes!
I might be wrong.
