To all forum members,

It is with a sense of great sadness that I must announce on the 17th of March 2010 I will be leaving the 2000AD forums and my position as System Administrator, as well as my position of web goon at Rebellion - for on the very next day I will be boarding a 747 headed for Australia.

I've had both a great time on these forums, helping you guys out, fixing issues and tweaking features, as well as working at Rebellion and helping with their websites, and I hope this place doesn't go to hell without me.

I don't know if you guys will get a new goon to replace me, or if W3bz will be the one keeping an eye on this place, but to help with moderation we've finally decided to hand some of the responsibility over to a group of volunteer moderators - and they are:

Bolt-01
Emperor
His Lordship rac
House of Usher
Mike Carroll

These guys will be making sure you don't wreck up the place, will be taking out the trash in regards to reported posts, and helping out W3bz and Wake with the current moderation load.

I wish you guys all the best for the future and I'm still here for 3 days so don't go all lord-of-the-flies just yet

Best of luck VinceBot. Be sure to pop in and say hello once you're plugged back into the mainframe in Oz.

All the best Vincebot - perhaps you could bring some back issues for the Mayor?  ;)

Thanks to your steady hand and immensely reasonable approach, the board stayed friendly and online. Now the lunatics have taken over the asylum...

To tell the truth, you can all get screwed.

You've left it in whose hands?!!

And we all thought Emperor was just a board name... now his Machiavellian plot can be revealed, today the 2000ad forum, tomorrow the world (cue maniacal laughter)

Best wishes Vincebot!

Have a great life VinceBot and thanks for helping keep this place going.

Two things though, what did you do wrong to get sent to the colonies and don't go to Uluru, as it's a radioatctive desert ;)
