Changing of the Guard.


Recommended Posts

Ladies and Gentlemates. I have an announcement.

Due to a combination of burnout, apathy and general all round exhaustion and tiredness I am, effective immediately passing the MMMV Minimate Of Leadership (Its a real thing, it gets implanted in your chest ala the Autobot Matrix) to Shanester.

Believe it or not, when I gained adminship of AA it was initially just to set the new place up, but one thing led to another and now here we are, my current personal circumstances etc don't afford me the free time they once did, and Shane has been doing a sterling job as admin here for the past few months, so its only natural someone so committed. and with such a long history in the Minimate community takes the reigns.

For those of you who are curious as to my future, I'll still be here, just as a member, financially Im still holding the purse strings and I want to see this place grow and grow, I just won't be involved in the day to day running of the place, instead acting more as a technical consultant when needed.

So, this is my last act as an admin, see all you guys on the boards and congratulations and good luck to Shane and his team!

(oh and please don't start been mean to me now I cant ban you!)

Wow big announcement!

That was a surprise in some ways and in others not.

Thank you Ady for all the effort you have put in so far and I can understand the time/burnout issues... Just make sure that you stay around and ramp up those post counts like in the old days :D

As for Shane, cant say I know of anyone that's a better man for the job, he's very commited to the site and we couldn't have a better leader.

Wow, Ady, I never even imagined you leaving the helm. I guess the tiny Star Trek fan in me always saw you as the Captain of this Minimate Starship. I wish you all the best and hope to see you around. And you are definitely leaving her in good hands - Shanester will do you proud, I'm sure.

Ady, you've done a fantastic job jump starting this fantastic community. I am sad to see you pass the torch but at the same time your sanity is also important too ;-) Hopefully in the coming weeks, things will die down enough so you can get some rest, having some breathing room, and relax. We still need to play a game or two on Xbox Live!

Shanester is perfect for taking over and I have no doubt that MMMV will continue to be a absolutely wonderful place to hang out and discuss Minimates.

While the news saddens me Ady, I understand and can sympathize with your plight ;) But you couldn't be giving it over to better hands. Good luck to you and Shanester. Through Shanester and the rest of the staff, I'm sure the community will continue to strive in your absence. Rest easy and come back when you can, you've left the community in good hands.

:o Wow what huge announcement. :( Thanks for all that you have done Ady. We understand that sometimes it's something that you just have to do. You've worked and dedicated so much of your time for so long on the boards. It's difficult to keep such a highly unprecedented pace. I think you will always be known as Mr. MMMV. Hope we get to see you around more often when you can mate.

I could not imagine anyone else better than Shanester to take the helm. :thumbsup: He is an honest person and has a wealth of knowledge. His proven dedication and leadership makes him an ideal successor.

Good luck to both of you!!

(Looks like I'm going to have beer tonight :P )

Good luck to you Ady. Can't say this is a HUGE surprise, as you've seemed more and more... weary as time has passed. I hope you enjoy your newfound freedom. Shanester, good luck to you too.

Oh yeah, Ady, now I can be mean. You stink. :P

Ady, thanks for everything from the Sauron Minimate (Still appreciated and offer still open if i can ever do anything for you) to getting this place up and running and on it's feet as without question the best Minimate messageboard to grace the internet. You've done a bang up, sterling job so far and i'm sure that Shanester will carry the torch on as "Ultimate MMMV Godlike Figure" in the finest of MMMV traditions...

And seeing as you'll only be a regular board member from now on...

Welcome to the boards :P

AdyCarter, Admin Emeritus

I give you a standing ovation for everything you have done for this little place we all like to call home. There is no doubt that Shanester is the right person to handle the responsibilities of keeping this home running smoothly, along with the moderators Lurch, Rad, and Reindeen.

Come on everybody, group hug!!!

Thanks for all your hard work Ady on giving us this home on the web. I can completely understand the way you feel and your need of a break. You've left your baby in good hands with the guys you got running the show now, so fear not for the future of the Multiverse.

Oh, and Shanester, if you happen to go mad with power and smash us all, remember that it wasn't my idea to shoot Hulk into space. It was all Professor TBT, Iron Rad, Black Ady, Doctor Reideen, and Mister Lurch's doing.
