Greetings
« on: February 10, 2012, 08:14:49 AM »

Just a quick note to say hello.  This is a temporary post that I will take down after a few weeks because I should not be the focus of attention - it is YOU the members of this forum who need to be the focus of attention here.  Anyway, I have seen a few posts with questions about the new owner and figured I should introduce myself. 

Why did I buy this site?  Two reasons.  First, I have started a business owning and operating forums.  I believe that being able to put problems out in the open enables people.  It enables us as customers of products to be able to learn, solve problems, and vent a little when necessary.  I am a big believer in free speech and I own a few other forums and believe that they will be a big part of our future.

Second, I also believe that the OWB business is pretty cool.  I own one that was manufactured in another country (not US), but I am not going to endorse or bash them.  In case you are wondering, it is NOT a Wood Doctor, and I am not affiliated with them at all.  Say what you wish about them.  I have no agenda to help or damage them.

I was actually hoping that Phin would not say anything to you until several weeks or months after the exchange.  I wanted to prove to everyone that absolutely nothing was going to change.  One year from now, I am sure you will all agree that the site will have only improved.

Regarding moderators, I am looking for a few volunteers.  I saw one post from a member that did not think it would be appropriate for a dealer to be a moderator...perhaps we should take turns and then vote?  Let me know your thoughts and we can try lots of things.  Phin says that there are some spammers who need to be addressed and I will do my best to work on that.  I have a friend who has agreed to help me with this business.  He is going through a divorce and will have need of some income for his help so I may consider putting a few ads on the site...it will not be like arboristsite so you won't need your sunglasses when you login.  If you have any objections to this, feel free to contact me.

As far as the ads, do as you please but I think most folks here would gladly donate a bit to keep that from happening.

i think the new owner should go with new mods. i had a good run with Phin on this board. i think i was wone of the first ones to stumble on to this site. the site and I grew together and i met many  good people here. A new owner will have new ideas and i think new moderators should be picked. Thanks for all your votes of confidence fellas but if  i were to be asked i would decline, there are many here that will do a fine job.

i have become a mod on another board with Ridgekid and it may be a conflilct of some sort as both the boards are about the same thing. you can look us up anytime we are not hard to find.

i will still be "lurking and learning"

happy burning everyone

Whoever the mods end up being, most importantly is that they are someone who frequents the board often enough to keep an eye out
