...is to briefly sticky this thread and say thank you. That's right, after nearly 4 years I'm stepping down, but I am not going away. It's time for me to be a regular Joe poster again. Keep that applause to a minimum. It isn't at all easy for me. I've enjoyed very much being of service to the site membership here. I especially enjoyed the custom avatar titles. Some of them have cracked me up. Even ones I had to deny. Thank you to all who treated me with respect when I had to be a Mod. Thank you even more to all who never forced me to be a Mod. I truly appreciate that. Back on the old site I got to know Dale and boozeman in the old chat room. Man that was fun. When booze asked me to help out I was hesitant at first. I knew I hadn't been around as long as some members and had relatively few posts in comparison. I said as much to him and I was right, some were not cool with it. Still, I have no regrets that I said yes. Thank you (all of you) for making this site so much fun for me as a hobby (okay, addiction). The title is gone so no more hiding behind that when I come after you in a debate. Big bad Hostile is no more. So don't you dare run. I especially want you all to know how appreciative I am of the staff here. What a great group of people. Each and every one of them. If you all knew how much they care about each of you it would amaze you. It truly would. Stuff you read about them on other sites, don't believe it. Whatever else you do, don't believe that stuff. I said my thank yous to the staff in the Mod Zone earlier today and believe me that wasn't the most pleasant thing I've ever done. There are still some great things coming for this forum soon. I'm sad that I won't be on the staff to be part of that, but deep down I know I am part of it, just like all of you are. This is the best Cowboys forum out there. Make no mistake about that. I'm not trying to put the other forums down when I say that. I'm just stating what I know to be a fact because there are no hidden agendas here. Everything that gets done here is with the membership in mind. Every time. You can bank on that. Thanks for 4 fun years. Here's to a lot more on the horizon.
