    It's been several weeks now since I have been able to devote adequate time to the role of Astronomy and Cosmology Mentor, and in future I'll likely be able to spend even less time here in PF.

    So, with great regret, it is necessary that I step down as A&C Mentor. I will leave as soon as a replacement Mentor is ready to take over.

    Nereid, we're going to miss you...I hope you'll continue to participate whenever you can. I've always appreciated your contributions here. Among the PF sisterhood, you've been the Mother Superior. :approve:

    And, yes, I wholeheartedly agree with Evo that we're going to have a fantastic new mentor, and I can't wait until it's all official so we can share that good news. :approve:

    I echo MoonB's post. I hope that we will still see you around even if you won't be mentoring. You are a very important part of PF.

    Neried,

    Thanks so much for all the time you put in. You are an excellent Mentor, and hopefully circumstances will allow you to rejoin us in the future. Let me take this opportunity to offer the first nomination for Nereid's Science Advisor Medal!
    :approve:
    Forget it kid, I'm not going anywhere. :wink:

    In the past I've suggested you are the best communicator at PF, and I should have added that you are the most fair-minded participant in a debate I've run across. I will miss you very much. :!!)

    Best of luck, Nereid. I think it fair to say that many of us greatly respect and have benefited from your example.

    Thanks everyone for the kind words.

    I plan to still be around, just less often than even recently.
