    Hi Nic,
    The very best to you in your new role on the forum, I will refrain from mentioning shoe sizes, that seems to have been a little bit of a problem recently, that's from one who takes UK size 12, continental size 47, so big!

    For some reason I am reminded of my first day at boot camp when group came running by, looked at us newcomers and started chanting "fresh meat, fresh meat ...".

    Congrats Nic!

  10. Hi everyone,

    Thanks for the well wishes. I was somewhat surprised when Amin approached me about taking the vacant moderator position but it's hard to say no to the guy who started this great forum. He made it sound like a very easy job too, although I'm certain there's a punchline to that which I will most likely discover before too long! It is somewhat unfortunate that it was Don (Streetshooter) who held the moderator position until just recently, and I certainly don't consider myself to be his replacement. Don has image-making flowing through his veins and I would need some kind transfusion to have but a fraction of that.

    This forum has been a great place to hang out during the time that I have been an active member and before then a lurker. It is what it is thanks to the founders and former admins like Amin, Brian, BB, and Don, and because of all of the members both old and new that I have gotten to know along the way.

    While I have my five seconds of fame I'd like to say that I see mu-43.com as primarily a photography forum with a common link in the gear that we use. Certainly my favourite parts of the forum are the image threads, the discussions on technique, philosophy, etc, all of which have been a great source of knowledge and inspiration for me and has hopefully made me a better photographer.

    Hopefully I can just continue to do what I have been doing on the forum up until now, that mostly being posting images and giving bad advice. Can I suggest that if anyone is up for a bit of mischief there is a great site across the hall at seriouscompacts. I hear the new mods there love a bit of trouble :smile:

    Thanks,

    I think he needs a new icon that reflects his new role:
