Thank you Kyle for the huge amount of time and resources you have put into this site and this hobby. It takes a dedicated person to start a forum and turn it into a huge success like this.

Thanks for all that youve done to provide us with a top notch forum Kyle. As with any changes, there will be growing pains and some folks are better able to adapt than others. Ones person, or even a few peoples opinion isnt likely to sway the odds, but just make you look like a poor member. With that being said...Welcome Adam! I look forward to having you aboard

Kyle: Thank you for everything. You deserve more than a simple "thanks", so I hope you've been sufficiently compensated in other ways for your time, problem-solving efforts, and general frustrations

We provide the resources necessary to run this site and maintain the day to day technical and managerial tasks that are time consuming for one person.

With that I would like you all to know that this is still YOUR community and we are here to work with the community and the existing staff to keep this site a place for you to come and feel at home.

My name is Adam, please feel free to ask questions in this section of the forum and I will do my best to answer any and all of them. As of now I will be the only PetGuide.com employee to join the site, I am here to answer questions help with technical issues and make sure we are doing our job and keeping you all happy. If you have any issues, feel free to discuss below. I hope you all enjoy this new chapter in PlantedTank.net life.

Thank you all for reading.

Adam, thank you for making the effort to make yourself known and offering a forum for questions.

I, and likely most other forum members, would like to know exactly what changes or additions, however small, that you plan to make to our beloved website. Clearly, there must be a financial incentive for acquiring a (relatively, considering the popularity of the hobby as a whole) popular site such as this, so I assume ad revenue is one of those incentives. Anything else? If so, what? Your finances are your concern, but how they affect "us" is ours as well.

This is probably evident if your corporation owns and runs a large number of websites, but we, the populace, will be kept happier if somebody is around to explain what's going on.

In any case, good luck, and I hope we will all benefit from the change in ownership and management.

Good luck Kyle! I've learned so much from this community in my first month as an aquarium owner. I've started using "plantedtank.net" as a filter in any of my aquarium-related google searches, too.

I used to be big into aquariums when I was younger, but started moving around a lot with jobs and such, so sadly had to stop. Moving it became a huge PITA.
I'll probably get back into it when I'm firmly in a house and not in an apartment.

Congratulations, Kyle!

I hope this means you'll now have time to start a dozen or so tank journals for us to read!

Welcome aboard Adam.

Kyle I hope you get enough to set up an awesome tank and then some. Don't be a stranger and come back often to visit your baby and TPT friends.

Thanks for the great site Kyle. It's sad to see the forum change hands, but I trust Adam will keep the ship sailing; as long as he starts a planted tank asap.

Welcome Adam,

Have you completed the hazing process yet?
