100 members paying $50.00 a year. Not bad? I would do it just for tech support.

Maybe to clarify; I want to move away from carrying the responsibility for the MechMate project, the forum, its moderating and maintenance, the obligation to read every post, to check for spammers, to pay hosting company, etc., etc.

If this is the case I would be more than willing to help out.. Running a forum is tough and I totaly understand how you feel Gerald. Running this one.. www.dmaxcentral.com takes 5 of us... How you manage by yourself all this time I have no idea...

The site managment, updates , hosting and fighting spammers I can handle.. .The expertise in the machine is where I fall short. maybe a few moderators that have " The Right Stuff" is the answer.... Let me think about some things and I will see if I can come up with a plan....

Guys, I am not looking for any new moderators at this stage, because the new owner of the site/forum will appoint his/her/their own.

A transfer of ownership is currently in progress, and expected to be completely concluded in about a week or two.

The new owner will become known in due course. He has been a member here for a long time and I don't think that anyone will have any problems with the new management. I have committed myself to him for a changeover period and I really believe that there won't even be a ripple.

Congratulations and thank you Gerald.

If I were a betting man , I'd bet that the legacy you've started will continue for a long time and will touch many people.

Best regards always,

It is my pleasure to announce that Mike (aka MetalHead) of Alabama has stepped in to pick up the reins. Thanks everyone for the support in the past, and I trust that Mike will continue to enjoy the same support in the future.
