Time to move on

It's been a great 5 year run for me as webmaster/admin at the DML, but the time's come for me to step down.

I've met great friends, both online and in person, and have certainly gotten more out of my time here than I ever expected. It's been great seeing the site grow and become the place for Monster owners to hang out, and having the ability to move that along by doing site upgrades and adding features has been a blast.

Since the sale of the site to Vertical Scope though, my role has become more of a caretaker than innovator, so it seems like a good time for a handoff to the new owners.

I'd like to extend a personal thanks to Jeff for asking me to take on the job, and to the mod core for making it all possible as the site expanded way beyond what any one or two people could handle. I'd also like to say the moderators and admins are the greatest group of people I'd ever hope to work with, and when the job became more work than fun, I could always count on them to crack a joke to lift me out of the slump.

I'll still be around in the local SF forum though, still riding my old beast and doing Vespa burnouts; just in an unofficial capacity.

My best to you all,
Michael

No longer hanging out here, sorry.

Ah, I guess you didn't read the "no-compete" clause in the contract...

Good for you guys

From what I understand, Jeff was the sole owner of the DML and sold it to VS. The Mods didn't sign any contract (BTW, all speculation on my part, I am assuming here)

You also took yourself off the list of moderators at the top of each forum you were on. Does that mean No Monster content is the Wild West right now? I see that Speedogg is still in Monster Content.
