Gents, Ladies and AWA

The time has come for me to move on from being a moderator at WebmasterWorld.

Neither Google, WebmasterWorld or I am the same as we were a few years back. change is guaranteed and is a good thing (imo)

So can I just say thank you so much for a wonderful time.

You have been great, see you on the other side (whatever that may be)...

That is sad, but understandable Shak. Thanks for all the great advice and inside scoops we've gotten from you over the years!

I'm very happy that I still got you IM ;)

Take care out there.

Hi Shak,

Really sorry to hear you would no longer be a Mod here. Have greatly appreciated your very helpful posts in the short time I have been here.

Wishing you all the best in all your adventures on the other side

Blimey! That's a real shame indeed. You know what's best for you though, and whatever it is that you move on to, I sincerely hope that it's the very best.

The time has come for me to move on from being a moderator at WebmasterWorld.

Oh my. I actually felt a ripple of shock at those words, Shak.

I'll miss your insights and your quirky 'touch on the reins' as moderator. No question.

I am assuming that you will continue to post, no? I truly hope that I'm correct in this assumption.

Thanks for all you have done for WebmasterWorld and this Forum - and thanks especially for the knowledge warmth and humor that you have extended to all of us for so long.

And thanks for the ice cream. ;)

Shak,

I have learnt more from you in your posts here and in our few meetings than almost anyone else in this industry.

I want to thank you for your help, dedication, time and energies and hope that although you leaving WebmasterWorld will definately be the forum's loss that the SEM community in general will still see and learn from your experiences ultimately leading to its gain.

Take care mate and I look forward to buying you a cup of tea soon!

Regards

Jason

Shak, thanks a lot for all the work you did and help you gave to the members of WebmasterWorld.

I personally enjoyed it a lot talking to you, exchanging thoughts and ideas. You are really one of the best people out there - as SEM, businessman and friend!

:(

Take care and all the best!

#1 WebmasterWorld member to me. One of the best people I've ever met in life, period.

We'll miss you Shak, thanks for everything. But I've got a funny feeling we'll still be seeing you. ;-)

Gotta thank Shak for me being a Mod. He's the one who keep insisting I could handle the forum.

Now, guess Skibum and I have a bunch of work todo.

Good luck on your new endevours. There's always something new to enjoy.

I hope that we'll see you post from time to time. And I do hope we'll see you at another UK PubCon at least. I missed hearing your energetic (and sober) voice in Las Vegas! Cheers mate!

Shak! My WebmasterWorld buddy!

Thanks for all the support, encouraging words and stickies that you've offered up over the past two years. As for the hard work you've put in around here; that speaks for itself.

I'll see you around mate.
