Nope. Something tells me Gary will keep order around here

Besides, Tex is still webmaster and probably still has a lot of influence on forum operations, somewhat.

Mr Tex/Blake sir, good luck and thanks. This is by the far the most most organized and welcoming forum on the net, and while obviously the actual forum users have a big impact on what a forum's like, the marshalling and creation of the environment can so much make it or break it!

Thank you, and have a load of these and 21 o' these !

And to the new guys taking over the asylum...

God speed the OrbiterForum, see you on the surface!

Good luck with that, sir. There's still Gary, Orb, and the rest of us to bring on the pain when it's needed.

I'd just like to say, with utmost sincerity, thank you for creating this forum and making it what it is today. Though not the only forum I am a member of, it is the only one on which I am active. I spend more time on O-F in a day than on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ combined. You will be missed, that is definite, but you have to follow your passions in life, regardless of the different directions they may take you. Godspeed, my friend. Live long and prosper.

I'm fairly new around here, so I'm not as familiar with everyone as most of the others. But everyone seems to like how you've run this place for so long, and I have too (for the short time I've been here ).

So, thanks for creating this place, and good luck.

Four years is quite a long time in dedicating to hosting and moderating a forum, and I definitely understand your decision. Thanks for your dedication to the Orbiter simulator community, and take your spare time in the things you love!

Thank you so much everyone for your extremely kind words and support! It makes me very happy to see how much you guys enjoy the forum, and although I never made addons for Orbiter, I'm thrilled that I was able to contribute to the community via this forum. While I originally set things up, we would not have had the same success without the support of you all, Martin, and of course our staff members.

May we all live long and prosper!

Tex, if you bring the same initiative and level-headedness to every other endeavor you face in life that you brought to this forum, you are going to go far indeed.



Thanks for stepping up when the community needed it!

Happy biking!

A huge thanks to Tex for having dedicated a considerable part of his spare time over the last four years to keeping this forum running smoothly. I know I have some very big shoes to fill as forum owner, but I'll give it my best shot .

Tex has managed to assemble a very capable bunch of administrators and moderators, and since the members of this forum are used to converse in a civilised and friendly manner (helped by the rare nudge from a moderator when discussions get over-enthusiastic ), I hope that things will proceed very much as before. Everyone's cooperation is encouragaged (and franky, expected ).

Tex, I wish you all the best for your new endeavours, and hope you will stick around this place for a long time to come.

Thank you Tex for the wonderful space you have created for this amazing community.

Your often down to earth, and well thought out discussions on the staff forum will be sorely missed.

I hope you have an amazing time with your marathon, bike riding and house renovations. Keep it up!
