New job and a new beginning for your Chief.
« on: June 20, 2016, 12:54:33 AM »
For those who missed it in some thread that I posted in about a month ago, I got a new job, and am very much excited to begin a new stage in my career.  :fiver  Part of that is because I will be moving much closer to friends and family I knew for years that I basically could not see as often because I lived too far away to make such daily trips convenient.  That too will be a very welcome change in my life!

That being said, it opens up another change that I only recently shared with my other admins on Fiver's Honeycomb.  As you know there are four admins here, myself, Myrkin, Claws, and Darkling and we've generally tried to make sure all four of us are on the same page and in agreement before making changes to the forum.  With all these new things happening with me, I made the decision to relinquish my admin power here and officially leave Fiver's Honeycomb in control of the other three admins, of whom I am certain will keep this place safe, active, and friendly for all Watership Down fans for many more years.   :hawkbit2


Thank you all for a very supportive five years online as founder of FH (and if you knew me before that, another seven years on top of that as part of the Watership Down online  community).  :)

I nearly broke down crying when I saw this...
Anyway, good luck with your new job, Hawkbit.

Well, it's sad to hear, that you're passing the baton, but I can understand your decision.

This leaves this place to a storyteller, a seer and (in minor parts) to a blind bat. Not the worst combination, if you ask me :D

Myrkin and Claws will keep this place running, I'm sure. I'm currently more the spirit that floats above everything :p

Thank you for creating and establishing this place :celebrate

A fantastic line-up for sure. Sounds like the perfect sitcom! :lol

Oh, Hawkbit! I'm glad thongs have taken a turn for the better with you. :) I'm sad to hear you're resigning, though, but I hope you'll still be around!

Thank you for creating this wonderful place, too. You started something great!

We're going to miss you, Hawkbit. This is truly bittersweet, for as sad as I am that you're leaving, joy flows in me at the thought that you're starting a brighter (pun unintended) stage of your life.

I always wish you the best :) Thank you for everything, particularly for creating this forum in the first place. Much good has come out of it. Rest assured that the Honeycomb is in caring hands.

Shame you are to step down... but you're hardly leaving, so that's positive. :D Congrats with the new job, and it's great you will be closer to family and friends, too. :)

My congratulations on your new job, Hawkbit. I wish you good luck with it. :)

Thank you for creating this forum all these years ago. If it wasn't for you, we would all have one little, empty spot in our hearts right now, as we wouldn't have such a good place to talk about WSD. We would also probably have not met each other, which would be a shame, since every person on this board is pretty cool in their own way. So thank you for that, Hawkbit-rah. :)
