Title: Time for Retirement!
Post by: Janine on Wed, May 11, 2011, 09:45 AM
Hey my lovely VXers!

Yes, you read that right, I'm going to retire from my position as a webmistress and from a great deal of my admin duties due to a lot of real life stuff that is going on and that doesn't allow me to fulfill my duties as a VX admin anymore like I should.

I will be staying on the team, I will keep hanging out here, but duty-wise I will be taking the back seat and hand over the reigns to the most amazing admin/mod team the internet has ever seen. And you, my lovelies, I could never abandon such a bunch of awesome people anyway.

Silsin is going to take over as your new webmistress and Northern Lights will help her with the site updates, my humble gratitude to both of you ladies! :hugs I have no doubt you'll be doing a kick-ass job! There might be one or the other shift of duties in the background, but this is certainly the most important one for you as of this moment.

So thanks to you for all your love and support over the years, and the trust you have always put in your staffers. Not only can Vin be proud to have such awesome fans, but every other forum has to look upon us jealously, realizing this is the best community to be.

Yours,
Janine

 :cry  We'll miss you... you've done such a bang-up job!  Glad you're not abandoning us completely.

Hope everything in 'real life' works out well for you.  Keep us updated.  *smooches* and hugs!

Aww, thank you! :hug But always keep in mind, it's never a single person that makes such a community awesome, it's a whole bunch of people - in this case: you. :)
