It is my reluctant duty to report that both Hootenanny and Tom Mattson are retiring from the PF staff (we've been assured it's temporary :biggrin:). While both will still be around the forums, Hootenanny will be focusing on his path to a PhD and Tom has a demanding teaching schedule. Both have put in massive amounts of effort into the forums and it shows. They are and haven been important players in how the forums have been shaped the past few years. Again, we hope they return soon!

To help fill in those very large holes left by Hoot and Tom we have brought in some new fresh top talent. Redbelly98 and Vanadium_50 :approve: Congrats guys and welcome!

Congrats to Redbelly and Vanadium. Another well-deserved honor.

Best wishes to both Tom and Hoot on their endeavors! If only the physicists around here could figure out a way to add more hours to a day, right? :biggrin:

They'll be back when the days get longer again.

Welcome Redbelly and Vanadium. And don't worry, I will show you my special, secret trick for cleaning the microwave in the Mentor kitchen. :wink:

WOOT!!!! Redbelly and Vanadium!!!! I already did my happy dance in the mentor's forum. We are so lucky to have them both!

I am very sad to see Hoot and Tom go even if it's temporary. They both did so much to make this forum what it is today. PLEASE COME BACK SOON!!!!

I trust Vanadium will be a great mentor for the parts of the forum I am most familiar with. He has always proven very knowledgeable and rigorous.

Congratulations to the new mentors ! Thanks for taking the duty.

Those are some big shoes to fill, but, in my experience, Redbelly and Vanadium definitely have big enough feet! (in the metaphorical sense, of course. I know nothing about they're actual feet.)

What they lack in size, they make up in smelliness.

I'd like to add my, somewhat belated, congratulations to both Redbelly and Vanadium. They have both made huge contributions to PF already and I am sure that they will both make excellent mentors.
