    Farewell to Someone Special

    I hate having to make this kind of post but it is inevitable on occasion.

    The time has come for dklynn to step down as Hosting Team Leader. DK has served us well for years now and true to form, has done a wonderful job in grooming his replacement.

    Please join me in thanking DK for all his work over the last few years and in congratulating ScallioXTX in his promotion to Team Leader.

    What can I say.

    I'm going to miss having the forum's top user of as a Team Leader.

    Like his avatar, an "ace" (forum) flier.

    Thankfully, I have confidence that ScallioXTX will be an excellent Team Leader.

    So Thanks and all the best DK, and welcome to the Blues ScallioXTX

    He is stepping down because he has a heavy burden to carry in his real life at the moment. Also he doesn't feel he can give 100% percent and he likes to adhere to extremely high standards.

    Don't worry, DK won't disappear completely from SPF I suspect you'll still see him but not as a Team Leader.

    I'd like to welcome Remon as his replacement and I believe he is a good choice as a replacement and hopefully won't burn himself out in his new role.

    Scallio, Congratulations. You'll be a great TL

    Does this means that DK is staying as an Advisor? Or is he becoming a regular member?

    Edit: Neve rmind. I know that he's really stepping down. DK, thanks for all the hard work.

    We couldn't ask for a better person to step in than Scallio, but DK has been a tremendous asset to SP for years. He will be sorely missed.

    Good luck DK, thank you for all your work/help here.

    You've certainly left a legacy.

    From personal experience, with ScallioXTX, I believe we're in good hands.

    David, you were a great team leader and are a true Apache guru (and you've got the badge to prove it, too). Don't be a stranger!

    Thanks all for the congratulations and votes of confidence!

    I just thought to check the News and Announcements (for a public announcement). That shows that I really need the rest!

    Yes, it was a personal decision to step down from staff. As this post indicates, I'll be around but at a much reduced frequency. I have to say that the response to my decision has been overwhelming ... and greatly appreciated.

    I've found that SitePoint members and staff are great and consider most among my friends (there were those who deserved infractions but those were the rarities that a moderator must deal with).

    I want to thank the entire Hosting Team for their support over the years (Wyatt, that means you, too!) and let people know that this group is highly motivated and widely knowledgeable - they are top people!

    I will close this with my public congratulations to Rémon on taking over the responsibility for the Hosting Team. Like all the members of the Hosting Team, Rémon's contributions have not been constrained to the Hosting boards but have spanned the forum. In particular, though, Rémon's "secret" contributions to aid moderators have also been considerable. I am leaving the Hosting Team in good hands.

    Regards to all!
