Due to some real life circumstances and time constraints, Appreciate is taking a leave of absence from her administrative duties at Ex Isle, for an undetermined amount of time. She's welcome to return to the admin corps at any time, of course. I've also made her promise to stick around as a member.

Until she returns, let's all thank Kath for her long arduous service.

Thanks Kath!

{{{{{Kathy}}}}}  I hope everything in RL is ok.  Thanks for everything you've done here.  I may not speak up a lot, but know you've always had my admiration for your dedication to this place (that goes for all my fellow staff, too).  

Hope to still see you around!! :)

Thanks everybody! :)

You know, I just want to take a moment to give a huge thank you to Rov.  He does so much for this site!  So many things that only a few of us know because a lot of what he does is cool and careful technical work that we just can't talk about publicly.  You guys, I think, might not realize how many sheer hours Rov puts into keeping us all running well, and safe, and smoothly.  He also puts UP with being the place where the buck stops--and I can tell you by association that that's not an easy place to sit.

I'm not saying he's perfect (no one would believe me) but I do have to say that he's outstanding.  And he's not compelling me to say this in any way ;) ;)

So, to start (((((((((((((((((((((((((((Rovvie))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))) :love:

((((((((((((((((((((Lillius))))))))))))))))))))) Thanks, dear :)

Thanks, Cardie, that means a lot coming from you.

Thanks, kimmer! :)

((((((((((((James))))))))))) :)


(((((((((((((Mary Rose)))))))))))) Thanks, and keep that excellent fic coming ;)

((((((((((((((bob))))))))))))) Thank you for the kind words.

(((((((((((((DWF)))))))))))))))))) Thanks to Mr. News :D

(((((((((((((((Windy))))))))))))))) Mostly, it's been my pleasure!

Thanks, Cyncie!

(((((((((((((((Shal))))))))))))) You hang in there, too, OK?

(((((((((((((((((Ro)))))))))))))))))))) :love:

(((((((((LV))))))))))) I'm glad you're here.

And wow, a Skyler hug! (((((((((((((John)))))))))))) It's always good to have an excuse to do that back ;)

(((((((((((((((Kam)))))))))))))))) :)

But I'm not going too far and will post when I can. :)

I can't lie and say that I'm happy about this. Kathy, you and Rov have done so much for this board, we owe you an enormous debt of gratitude. And your presence will be deeply, deeply missed in the SL. :(

Thank you for being such a wonderful person, and doing all of the things that you do!


We'll miss you as Admin every minute you're not there, but I'm glad you're taking some time for yourself. May peace and happiness follow you wherever you go. :)

And hey, stick around and post on EI more often, okay? ;)
