    Hello all,

    So I was talking with a few peeps and I think its best I pass on the throne. I've taken on new challenges recently and I honestly don't have much if any spare time. I have already appointed Norton as captain. He's done a great job updating threads and helping out and is active a lot. Me as well as all of you are sure he can do a great job. So let's give him a huge congrats on his promotion. :)

    As far as me, I'll still crunch and be around, for those who might have asked.

    In the next day or two I'll get the titles and all the threads changed accordingly.
     
    AnnCore, laptop-hpc, [Ion] and 15 others say thanks.

    Best of luck to you and your pursuits, D :toast: It doesn't even seem that long ago that you were appointed captain- time flies. You had an excellent run; thank you for all your hard work :respect:

    Norton is the absolute best pick for the next Captain. You're leaving the position in great hands.

    That role will be on a spontaneous freelancing basis and depending who is online much in that particular period in which an assistant captain is needed.

    Congrats, Norton! Now Captain Norton!!

    CP, you were and always will be 'Da Man!' Sad to see you go but Happy that you are growing into your own career.

    Norton is a very capable next step in the Captaincy.

    I am extremely happy for you both!

    TPU could not be the best, without the best in charge!
