    Thanks very much, Raiders. I'm not sure of what all you've done but I'm fairly certain you've done it well.

    I will be available to ridicule whomever takes the reigns of leadership.

    I nominate whoever takes over should give power of the banner to Sxottlan.

    Kudos, Raiders. Everyone here appreciates your hard work over the years and the site's all the better for the many hours of work you put into it. Like KF said, I too hope you decide to continue posting even if it means taking a break or breather away from the site. I dearly miss the days when you posted on a more consistent basis, but it's understandable that life gets in the way sometimes.

    Great work, Raiders, and thanks for ruling over the site for as long as you did. Also I for one will salute whatever new overlord takes the reins. Unless its Irish or trans :P

    Thanks for everything, Raiders. Having Match Cut for the last five years has given me the best online community I've ever been a part of, and you've been an integral part of that. Thank you, truly, and very much.

    Unfortunate news. From Spinal, too.

    Ezee seems like a good man for the job as replacement.

    I second this.

    I honestly haven't been much of a moderator for some time now, so someone else should probably claim the title...

    I agree with that pick. Plus he's around here enough.

    Also a hearty thanks to all of the mods here, too.

    I too extend my thanks and appreciation to Raiders, Spinal, KF, and chrisnu for their excellent work over the years. I am certainly sympathetic to the changes of interest as full-time jobs and children come into the picture, so I thank you all for making this such an enjoyable site.

    Whatever changes come, thanks for the good times. And I second letting Sxottlan have more control of the banners.

    Thank you for all that you've done Raiders. As well as the mods! I adore this site and I hope it can keep going.

    Please be aware this is not related to any one specific person or incident. Sure, recent activity has made this all the more clear on my part that I wish to end my time as admin, but this is something I have been considering for a while now.
    I don't look in the off-topic forum at all or the long running threads, so I'm not sure what this refers to, but one thing I have really loved about this site is how generally well-behaved everyone is. I got sick of internet drama years ago, so I'm glad it's been at a minimum here.
