    A New Design Team Leader

    It's with mixed feelings that I make this particular post, which serves the dual purpose of announcing the resignation of @Paul O'B ; as Design Team Leader, and the induction of @ralph.m ; into the team to replace him.

    Paul was around this place before I joined and epitomises the kind of guy that makes our forum great. He is patient, helpful and super smart.
    Anyway, because this isn't a eulogy (in fact Paul has agreed to stay on as an Advisor), I'll stop now.

    Please join me in thanking Paul for services rendered, and welcoming Ralph into his new role.

    Congratulations Ralph! It is great to see you in blue and I'm sure that you will do a great job.

    Paul, all your effort is very appreciated but what it really makes me happy is that you're staying and green is a great color that suits well to everyone

    Congrats Ralph! Seeing how hard you work around here, this promotion (if that's what it is) is well deserved. I know you'll continue to do a great job.

    And thanks for everything Paul! No matter what color badge you wear, you are a phenomenal leader and an innovator. It's great that you are staying on as an Advisor!

    Yeah, one day we need to find out what the heck that thing actually IS! (I hope is hasn't scared too many kids away from learning CSS. )

    No, I don't know what it is. It was given to me by a former mentor (frozentoast) whom made a number of similar ones at the time as there was a short craze for them. They did have a name but I can't remember what they were called unfortunately. Perhaps it was a relation to the dodo.

    I also wanted to take the opportunity say thanks to Paul for the times you have helped me directly (you have saved my skin more than once), but also for the many resources you have made available (such as the guide/code from the FAQ for making a sticky footer, which I am current using in a project). Thanks, man!

    Ralph, you'll have some big boots to fill, but I'm sure if anyone can pull it off, you can!
