    Hi, everyone! :D I always hate long-winded, drawn-out goodbyes, so let?s get down to brass tacks. In the last couple of hours, some unfortunate things have taken place in my RL, and as such, I will be stepping down as the Adoption Co-ordinator (effective immediately) and leaving the JC permanently.

    At this point, I totally want to thank Morgaine (our fearless and tireless leader) and all of the oldbies of the Welcome New Users forum. This is, by far, the best forum at the JC and that is because of you - the oldbies - and the positive/caring atmosphere that you foster for all the wide-eyed, adorable newbies that venture here. ;)

    In terms of the Newbie Adoption Program, I want to especially thank Stridarious for picking up the slack in my recent absence; you?ve done an admirable job, my friend. ;) And in terms of the Program?s future, I leave that solely to the wise discretion of Morgaine; because ?in Morgaine we trust.? ;)

    Take care, everyone. :)

    Yours truly,
    Dan
