Handing over the keys to the A&C forum…

    You’ll soon notice another change in the mentor line up around here. Earlier this week I announced to the PF staff that I needed to resign as mentor. It’s a tough decision for me because I love these forums, which I’ve been mentoring since the beginning…through all those upgrades (kudos to Greg et al. on that) and my various forum assignments (let’s see…first I moderated the Physics forum, then the Religion & Philosophy forum, then the Other Sciences forum, and finally the Astronomy & Cosmology forum that I had always wanted and for which I am aptly user-named). But a ramp up in my real world demands means I have less and less time for mentor duties. I assume this has been noticeable to the A&C veterans lately. I’ll certainly continue to visit PF as a member whenever I can, but my free time will be in hibernation for the next few months. Anyway, I know PF and the A&C forums remain in good hands.

    Greg, do I have to turn in my executive washroom keys too? I’ll just run down to the hardware store and make a quick copy first…

    Phobos, you'll definitely be missed! I hope you aren't kept away from us too long.

    You actually got the keys to the executive washroom? When you get back from the hardware store, why don't you just give those to me to take to Greg since you're so busy (as soon as I get back from the hardware store myself.) o:)

    Best of luck Phobos. As someone I work out with says from time to time "life happens."

    I got one too. It was tied with a bow to a plunger though.

    All the best Phobos. And thanks for the continued effort to help raise PF from its birth, to what it has become today. I'm sure we all owe you a gratitude greater than we'll ever know just from our times here.

    Thanks for your time and effort, you've done a really great job over the years. It won't be easy to fill your shoes.
    While I don't post much in the Astronomy threads, I read them everyday. Thank you for always keeping the barr raised to such a high quality.

    Yeah, I read but don't post in A&C too; it's super.

    Thank you, Phobos!!!!!!!!!!!1

    Hope you enjoy whatever you're doing! :smile: (Well, as long as you're not skinning cats or anything of that sort.)

    My two cents: If you guys are looking for another A&C mentor, I think SpaceTiger would be an excellent choice.
