Time to make a few changes for me.

    Good evening from New York - I'm writing to say a sort of goodbye. Well, not really,:wink: however I won't be here in quite the same way as I have been for so many months.

    I've decided that the time has come for me to hand in my Super Mod reins. As some of you know, Mu-43 was the key to bringing me back to my creative world of photography by teaching me the how to's of digital photography. Most importantly, thanks to the friendship and help that I received here, right from the start as a digital newbie full of never ending questions, I will be forever grateful and, yes, indebted.

    As things have worked out, I no longer use a micro four thirds camera (although one never knows about the future for an "evolving camera owner") and, as some of you may know, I am quite involved with Amin Sabet's other great photography site Serious Compacts, thus I feel that it is time take a back seat here and continue to enjoy the forum on a different basis. So, bottom line - it's not really a big deal, nor a goodbye - however, very shortly it will be see you here but no longer as a moderator.:friends:

    Now try hard to post your threads in the right forums!:biggrin:

    Well, what to say more than "job well done, BB" !

    Hope to see pictures from you soon here (that e-pl2 looks gorgeous, if I were you ... :biggrin:)

    I know this isn't "goodbye", but with BB stepping down from being a moderator, I just wanted to express how thankful I am for everything she has done for this community. There might not be a Mu-43.com at all without you, BB, and it definitely wouldn't be the place it is without your immense contributions here.

    I hope there is a Micro 4/3 camera somewhere in your future, but either way I'll be seeing you here and on the "other side" :smile:.

    Awww, I'll miss you here but I'll catch you on serious compacts. You know that could be a much more dangerous area, getting bigger all the time. If we could only get some of those i.e. X100.

    Thanks so much BB! ....and see you over there.

    BB & I became more than friends working together, we became family. We talk on the phone almost every day and when we don't we email or PM each other. It's been a real please working with BB and getting to know her.

    All I can say is... Thanks SIS and I'll see you on the other side....hmmmm that don't sound right...
    I'll see you across the street. Over there, I can be a pain in yer butt....

    Thanks BB for all your hard work during your custodianship. I'm sure that 6300 posts and counting is some kind of record! Hopefully we don't go too far off the rails without you here to keep us in line. Thanks again and will surely still see you here and at seriouscompacts.

    I am very sad to see this. Your cheerfulness, even when dressing someone down, was always refreshing.

    As they say, don't be a stranger. Be sure to post a few now and then.

    Thanks for all your hard work here, BB.
    The forum wouldn't have been the same without you ! And it won't be the same from now on.

    But it will survive, I'm sure !

    See you later,

    Hello BB,

    Thanks for all of your hard work... and thanks you for being such a wonderful arbitrator ... I'm sure it's been fun for you, but not always easy.

    All the best, Alan

    I must say, its been a pleasure to have you on this site and the sister site. Your contributions will not be forgotten. You keep us kiddies in line if we get too rough in the sandbox:wink:.

    This forum is first and foremost about photography, at least I think. The forum did start out as bringing a bunch of early adopters of the system together to learn about the system and photography together. Now the forum is much more than that.

    Being a moderator on a growing forum is time consuming and takes dedication. We thank you for your fabulous job and dedication.

    You've done so much for this forum - and so many people. You were one of my first PAD buddies! Another big thanks! Will see you around...maybe in Rye some time?

    My spouse, Berta, just got a xz-1, so we have no excuse not to frequent SeriousCompacts, as well.

    Aww, thanks you all. I really appreciate you kind and thoughtful remarks. And, Narnian - that is one of the nicest compliments I've ever gotten about "dressing down" someone with cheerfulness! I don't think our daughter would agree.:biggrin:

    I'm not really gone, I'm just around in a different way than before.

    Now be good to your new Super Moderator, Alan!:wink:

    Again, many thanks for your kindness. I must say I do like my galaxy of stars, very much.:drinks:

    Thanks for all the help and encouraging words, BB. But as you said, you'll still be around, and your feedback will always be welcome. :wink:

    Congrats, Alan! I'm sure you'd continue all the admins' work of making this a very friendly and educational forum.

    BBW has been like a mother to me on this forum. (not that I've been naughty) but in the way she's looked out for me and been there since the beginning.

    Thanks BB
