    Out With The Old, In With The New

    Hey Hammock Forum friends, in talking with the other HF mods/administrators I have reached a decision that I want to share with you.
    It's not a big deal but talking about it here will save me from explaining many times elsewhere

    For some time I have felt guilty that I was not contributing like I could/should to the business of keeping HF running smoothly.
    Between HF burn out, other life issues weighing me down & my lack of computer skills, I have offered little help to the running of the site compared to the others who have been present & busy.

    Therefore, I am going to return to normal member status. I suspect I will feel a certain relief, & find it it more pleasurable to take part in hammock discussions.

    I would like to once again thank the HF members for being such a unique & caring group of folks. It has been a pleasure helping moderate this community. I think we would be hard pressed to find many (if any) other places on the web where such a large & diverse group of people get along so well. I hope to keep seeing old friends & meeting new ones at some of the hammock hangs yet to come.

    At the same time, I would like to announce that HF has a new moderator! Our fellow member JohnSawyer has graciously stepped up to Moderator status. His always helpful tone and valuable input have been a boon to this community, and we think he will be a natural fit to the moderation staff. Join us in welcoming him!

    Thanks friends,
    Tim
    don`t leave the CREATOR out of the creation!

    Let me be the first to congratulate John!! How long have you been holding that one under your hat

    I agree that John will do an absolute great job. I'll have to watch my P's and Q's around him now Holy Cow, I might actually get scolded by John. This changes our relationship a bit Just kidding!

    I'm glad your not leaving us slowhike. When I first started reading this, I was worried, but now I totally understand where you are coming from. Thanks for explaining and letting us know what's going on.

    Tim, I'd like to offer an emphatic 'Thank You!' for all the time, input, and effort you've put into HF over the years. You've been an institution here since the forum's earliest days. It was an honor to get to know you well, and to work with you here. I hope you truly enjoy sitting back and posting without having to worry about keeping track of things!

    And a special 'welcome aboard!' to JohnSawyer. You've been a valuable contributing member of the dicussions, and we thank you for stepping up to help out further.

    You'll always be a mod, at least in my heart.
    Thanks for all your hard work and guidance to the community over the years.

    Congrats to JS on the new duties! Finally a West Coast mod.
