Hello all.

I am leaving the Portingteam Project for a good while, because of time related issues and some other things in my life.
You may have noticed things gradually slowing down here, with the lack of new stuff happening or watching my postcount slowing down rapidly.
As a consequence, i'm stepping down as the active Administrator of the site; since a non-active Admin is like a handbrake for a community or a project.
In my place thedoctor45 will manage things here and keep everything running (although his priorities always were with making ports), with assistance from the active Moderator Team members ( and hopefully all you other guys here ^_^ )
There should also be a second active Admin on this board, but i'll leave that to the Team members to elect one when they agree on who it shall be from them.
Also i hear they are considering recruiting new Team Members, so show you best side here if you want to be scouted ^_^

I'll still be around here to check up upon things from time to time and help out here and there, but i can't be here as much as in the last two years.
If you are a long standing member here, you may remember that the 'responsibility' of the Portingteam Project (that nearly bit the digital bucket) was kinda hurriedly forced upon me anyway.
So while things are running smoothly here and everybody here kind of knows his/her purpose, i know i leave things here in good hands.

Still, if things kind of get slow around here, feel free to keep bugging the guys in red or green until they do something, that's what they're here for. ^_^

My active projects are hereby frozen until no further notice, but most of them were older stuff anyway.
If someone finds the room to improve things i've posted here and there, feel free to do what you can.

The current plan for the Portingteam Project is to overhaul it gradually, with a separate database for all Ports (like WineHQ) and lots of improvements here; but because of said time issues this plan has hit a little speed bump.
loco (the other Retired Admin) and me will try to build this system (Invision Power Board) when we find the time for it. (should see the light of the day this year however...)
If you know a bit about php and html or IPB, feel free to write us and we'll figure it out together how the next Portingteam system will be like.

Here's a small parting gift, a Haiku i've thought up a some time ago:

You can only stand
with your own two feet
on tomorrow.

More of a metaphor & riddle actually, where feet =/= feet and tomorrow =/= tomorrow.

stay sharp
Hello. Sadly, I am not active here on the Porting Team anymore, and therefore I cannot give support or answer questions to any of my posted Ports or posted topics.

- zero

Thanks for doing all that you did, you will be missed around here. I'm sure these "vacations" will do you good and I sure hope I'll see you around ! Take care and may you enjoy and succeed at whatever it is you want to move on to.

If there is a problem with one of my wrappers, please let me know by posting on the game thread AND by sending me a pm.
If there are no problems, then a little "Thank you!" is always heart-warming! ;)

I've only been around for a short time, but it didn't take my much time to figure out how much you have contributed to this site.

I'm very happy you said you would still check in from time to time, pt needs people like you!

Yes dev, I'm going to miss our conversations even though they heavily decreased over the past few months.
I'd like to say that it was a pleasure working with such a dedicated person on this project - without you we wouldn't be standing where we are now - I'll try my best to keep it all up and running while you're away.

Now excuse me before I get sentimental... ;)

Can't believe your leaving :(

Though I understand that real live commitments always take priority.

You can feel proud as to how much you ave contributed here, and for that, we all thank you.

Keep in touch, and take care in everything you do.
