I just would like to annouce that I've now passed on the running of the site to sumojo. Its currently being transferred, i.e. I am no longer owner or admin. I'm sure he'll post shortly with more information.

I just would like to say many thanks and goodbye(from this perspective) to all the people who have visited here over the years and have made this place what it is. I am sorry for the way the last few days have been handled but its now out of my control. I am not actually leaving the scene/community but will just not be around much(not that I have been).

Thanks and I hope you join me in wishing the best for new owner and moderators.

I'll be trying my best.  

For those rumors that I've heard going around of those worried about this place turning into another qbtk or fbtk, don't worry.  For the most part this site and its rules will stay the same.  If any change is made it will be slight and unnoticeable.

Hosting will be moved soon, updates will be posted when to expect the transition.

Is it a coincidence that Sumo Jo has 666 posts at the moment? I think not! Wildcard has made a deal with the devil!

Well, I'm glad you are going to remain in the community.

BTW, I'm still waiting for that feedback on LONG demo from you. Tongue

And the final torch is extinguished...

So, all original Future.Basic members are now gone, wildcard being the last, all previous replacement members are now gone, myself being the last.

An era closes, and era ends...
   ...will it begin again?  That all depends.

Heh. I've been around in some form or other since the late 1990's. Just not at this site.  I've seen people come and go, etc etc.

Adios, wildcard. And good show for turning over the forum.

When Mallard left The QBasic Forum, he simply bugged out and forgot the password and everything. It was a mess, dying from advertisments. Ideally, he would have turned the password over to some regular on leaving.

To me it's like driving a bus as a free courtesy. True, you owe nobody anything. In fact, the reverse. Still, it is strange to simply stop the bus and walk away with the key.

I finally had a new key made (at great pain) and The QBasic Forum is up and running again. I'm glad the QBasicNews forum doesn't have to suffer that.

Sumo Jo - good man!
