Due to the ill health of a close family member (who is now recovering) as well as various other family and personal commitments, I feel that I no-longer have the time that I feel is necessary for the successful management of the forum. I have therefore taken the decision to step down as owner and an administrator of the forum.

I always maintained that should this day ever come I would hand the forum over to someone else rather than close it down. I am very happy to say that Ellen (ERinVA) has agreed to take over ownership of the forum. The process of transferring the ownership to Ellen has been started and should hopefully be completed in the next week or two. The first obvious sign of this is that Ellen is now an administrator, as some of you have already noticed! :lol:

I am not leaving the forum completely and will still be around from time to time. I am also staying on as part of the Site Staff team as a technical advisor.

I want to take this opportunity to thank the members of the Site Staff for their continued hard work and commitment to the forum; I would especially like to thank Nikkie (nikkie-nikkie) and Ruth (jabka) for the enormous support they gave me, both in the planning and setting up of the forum and during several tough times along the way.

Lastly, but by no means least, I would like to thank all of you, the members. Without you and your continued support we wouldn't have the fantastic forum that we have.

All the best,

John

John,

It is with great sadness that I read your post about stepping down as site owner.

While I have never met you personally or, indeed, ever had many dealings with you even here on the Forum, your hardwork and diligent efforts in setting it up and running it cannot helped but be noticed by its members. Thank you for all the hard work in putting this excellent site together.

While I'm sorry to hear you can't be as involved as you've been in the past, I can't be more thrilled that Ellen has agreed to take over the site. We all know how much time and dedication she's had as Site Moderator here, and it's so good to know the Forum will continue in such capable hands as hers.

Best wishes to you and your family as you deal with the illness in your family and I look forward to your continued presence here whenever you are able to visit and contribute.

Gary (porschesrule)

Thank you, John, for all the hard work you have done with this forum. We are all so grateful that you, Nikkie, and Ruth took the initiative to start it, and we are even more grateful that in deciding to step down as the owner, you did not just decide to "pull the plug" on us. I am looking forward to keeping this forum going for as long as there are productions of the show to discuss. I may not know much about forum ownership just yet, but I have a feeling I am going to find out! Thank goodness, you will still be around to call on!

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

All the forum members owe a debt of gratitude to Ruth (Jabka), Nikkie and John for the vision that was shown to start this forum and the hard work that went into it. I know from the dealings with John as Gallery Moderator just how much work he put in to the initial setting up of the forum and we will never be able to thank him enough.

Thank you for all your hard work

And I would like to add my thanks as well to John and Ruth and Nikkie for all their hard work. And I thank Ellen for taking over as admin so we can keep this forum alive and well.

And John, I hope your family member continues in their recovery.
