Ha, hey folks thanks for the last nearly three years of so much fun around here. I've enjoyed the posts, I've enjoyed the learning and those of you I met in Boston will warm my heart forever.

I've decided to try something new. Yes, I am going to make money now just for myself and not for others. Interesting concept. I will probably be lurking in new forums and trying to learn new skills.

Good wishes and good luck to my friends.

Wow, Debra... thanks for sharing your insights. I've actually been thinking along similar lines so can only wish you the best and hope to read here at WebmasterWorld in a year or so, more about the transition and your own bliss.

Back from vacation on Friday - and then I see this :( sad news, indeed - however, there is as always, light at the end of the tunnel for those that open their eyes to see.

The Socrates cave parable (from Plato's Republic) comes to mind...those who have seen the sun, go back into the cave, and appear mad to those that have never seen, since they are shackled and can only see the shadows & reflections of the light behind them.

Well, now that you have seen the light, perhaps you appear mad to some of us - but not all.

~ Good luck with everything ~

It can be a tough transition from this pseudo teacher roll Iíve acquired back to that of a student, especially in the same school so to speak.

Rarely does a lesson I teach go by without hearing a question I have never heard before. The learner teaches us that no matter how experienced, how versed and adept we are, there are always things we ourselves have never considered.

In the end, the teacher must remain a student, for the act of teaching requires that we ourselves adapt to change... and to do this, your "teaching" mode can't be the only mode.

Hard to fathom

Thanks Deb... and lots of luck! :)

Wow, Paynt! Even in your resignation post, you manage to put to heart and soul into it. I guess I shouldn't be surprised:)

It's impossible to calculate how much you'll be missed as a moderator - your knowledge, intuitiveness, enthusiasm, wit, and caring (just to name a few;) have all contributed to making WebmasterWorld so helpful and special to me. Thank you for all the hard work and time you've given to make this such a great place.

I am so glad you're not leaving all together, though! I'm sure you'll do great in whatever you pursue personally or professionally. Take care, we'll see ya around.

PS - thanks again for the kind words you had for me in Boston, but most of all just for hanging out with me! I'm glad we met.

Wow, how did I miss this news! It doesn't take a genius to realize how much you've put into this forum Debra, and how much everyone here got from it. Just want to say thanks. And best of luck in your new endeavors! :)

We all certainly learned a lot from your forum and you will be missed as a mod. It will seam very strange to see your name without word "moderator" on it.
I think you have done the right thing because sometimes we really do need to think of ourselfes. You have put a lot of time and hard work into your participation here and im sure you have helped out a lot of us along the way.

Just make sure you stick around.

Mack.
