    Programming team has a new Team Leader: me!

    Rudy, a SitePoint icon and moderating über-ninja, has decided to enjoy the fruits of his labor in this community, and has passed the title of Team Leader on to me.

    I look forward to helping keep SitePoint the excellent community it already is.

    Thank you for your years of service, Rudy! And don't be a stranger!

    thanks, longneck, for the kind words

    i'm not leaving sitepoint, i will still be here for SQL questions and so on

    remember, folks, the price of a spam-free, fluff-free, useful community forum is constant vigilance

    i hope everyone knows what the little red triangle beside every post is for -- if you see spam or fluff, please report it

    thanks and see you in the forums

    He's just leaving the staff, not the forums.

    If he was leaving the forums, I'd have started him on The Long Walk (Judge Dredd style).

    Rudy (a.k.a. The Moderating Machine) stepping down means the rest of us will have to work twice as hard. But we'll do it.

    Congratulations to your promotion, Carl!

    Congratulations!

    And I'm glad Rudy will be around the forums, though it is a well deserved retirement, too. Not that I have much to do with SQL (yet), but whenever I needed information in the past, just reading the answers in the related forums were always more than helpful.

    Well, it's certainly going to get some getting-used-to! Losing the staff member of the year will be a blow to the team.

    Congratulations Longneck! You've got some big boots to fill and I'm sure you will do so. You've done alot for the forums as a mentor and an advisor; You definitely deserve the promotion and I have no doubts that you're going to do a fantastic job.

    Congratulations Karl! You'll be great in your new role and the tie really suits you.

    Rudy, glad that you are staying. I still need to learn lots from you and I don't think that I can learn that much in a short time. So stay for a long, long time

    Thanks Rudy for everything you have done for the community. And just like the iceberg - the visible part was only the 1/10 of it.

    And congratulations Carl
