Kurieuo Stepping Down

#1

Post by Kurieuo » Mon Dec 10, 2018 12:38 am

Well, I guess it should be annouced that I'm stepping down as both moderator and admin of this board, and probably noone more fitting to do it than myself.

Nothing dramatic really went into the decision. There are various small reasons that all add up, some personal, some to do with my own desired focus. There are no grievances. As some might know, I'd stepped down once before. My time back was meant to only be temporary while Hana had personal affairs to attend to.

So now, I find my heart just isn't in it, and it perhaps hasn't been for some time. It seems only fitting to stand down and open up myself other things. I wish the remaining moderators well and pray the board continues and grows.

I'll still be frequenting this board from time-to-time and still be posting. So it isn't a goodbye, just a change in status here. :wave:

Who are you again?

Oh no ! First B.W. and now Kurieuo steps down. :(

Do we need to find a new replacement moderator ? Preferably someone who's a brilliant scientist and an expert theologian! with a heart of gold and who is a paragon of humility, has incredible patience and razor sharp intuition, a witty sense of humor and produces captivating charismatic discourse, is a shining example of wisdom and works in complete harmony with the Trinity !

Ok, I'll consider the position :lol:

K will be around - he's only relinquished his technical administrator position. He's felt the need to shift gears in the in the past as well - kind of like an Aussie boomerang!

Wish you well K. I haven’t been around much at all lately but I’ve always valued your presence and input even when we were at total logger heads. All the best.
If he’s anything like a boomerang thankfully he’ll be back around from time to time.

Keeping with the Australian metaphor theme, Kurieuo is probably more like a dingo, who keeps hanging around, trying to eat my baby.

Yes, but to be fair he really didn't believe in an un-ancored bookcase, he just did not believe grounding the anchoring in a necessary being made sense to him, which of course, makes his argument as incoherent as an un-anchored bookshelf. :mrgreen:

What if it turns out that I am one of the very last active members here. I figured that would happen.

Kurieuo isn't leaving. He's stepping down as board admin. He's still a member here.

I'd like to take this opportunity to publicly thank Kurieuo for all he has done for this board over the years. As an administrator, he has kept the board running as smoothly as possible. As a moderator, he has given years of his time, and has been a great moderator. And hopefully he will continue to give more of his great insight, as he continues as a member here.

Kurieuo was instrumental since the beginning of the board, over 14 years ago.

He has volunteered his time to help keep this board running for as long as it has been here.

Thank you, Kurieuo!

:cheers: :toppoints:
