I'm still alive, busy!
I have expressed to the moderators a while ago that I am too busy to properly admin this site.
Not in a bad way, I'm digging my work, playing with tractors, the truck, the grandson and have a granddaughter due in a couple days.
That bein' said I have not been able to give due diligence to the site. I haven't been backing up like I should or anything else for that matter.
The site needs a better admin to keep it going and help it to get better.
I suggest you folks getting together on this topic and discussing who the new admin should be, although I think Dave is an outstanding choice!
The site needs more active moderators too.
I don't plan on going anywhere and will still own the site but will turn the reigns over to the new admin to make changes as they see fit.
I want to act in a moderator role only.
I hate to see the site get in a rut, that can't happen. This is a great bunch of folks and as far as forums go, this has to be one of the best hobby sites there is (of course I'm a little prejudiced there).
I would say changes could be made in a lot of places to make it more appealing and user friendly.
But, it will remain free and ad free.
I want to start getting back on here but not in a work way. I'm feeling guilty anymore when I log in and see that I haven't done anything in years to update or change anything. I have enjoyed my time here as admin and going back to Mark as his right hand guy when we got the IH Registry up and running. All I want to do now is hand the work part off to someone more capable, creative and wants to boost the presence of the site. Getting lazy in my old age I guess....
I've let it be known that I won't back seat admin (unless someone decided to go with a pink background or something).
I can't believe we still get new members every day!
Well, chew on this for a while folks and lets see what happens
Thank you all so much for making this a great place.
