And for the new owners welcome to our world, you have very big shoes to fill.
I completely agree, they do indeed!

I do hope that some day when life is less hectic, I can help you stock a tank as a thank you!
I agree with the sentiments expressed here, Kyle you deserve a reward after a decade of continual development, expansion and the level of commitment that you've shown over the years. I remember joining back in 2003 and though I've not been as active as I'd like and have been in and out of the hobby over the past decade, I have always relied upon the site for advice, information, and a sense of community. Thanks for making that a reality not just for me but for the rest of the community members, old and new alike. A decade is a long time and you deserve the break, lol.

Hmmm...well we already have those now, the question is will there be more? Will they be larger, more offensive and obvious? That would definitely turn me off, but we'll have to wait and see. According to Kyle, there won't be much of a change, so I suspect (and hope) that things will remain the same in terms of current advertisement practices, placement, etc.

I'll probably get back into it when I'm firmly in a house and not in an apartment.
I know how that is. I just bought a 90P and Gods help me if it isn't heavy without anything in it, so I'm dreading the day when I have to move out of my apartment. Just transporting the thing is going to be an issue by itself!
