Things change, we all have to move on at sometime. To be truthful, I wanted to step down as admin a long time ago on this site. I never really felt like I fit the role well and I was always too lax with things. If the forum dies, oh well, but if you guys want to put in the effort to breath new life into it, go ahead. I might even try to help you out if your effort is good enough. But it's just how things seem to go on online sites like this, I've seen it happen before.
I might have pulled a lot of jabs at feld0, probably more than he deserved, but he is a busy guy too. I completely understand why he hasn't been around as much, not only is he running a more active forum, but he is heading a project for a community as well as juggling real life (and if I remember correctly, his aspirations and studies were a bit more higher shooting then mine). That's not to say there aren't some problems here especially with communication, but that's neither here nor there right now.
At the very least, my opinion of the site improved after the chatroom was removed, that was a real mess. In hindsight, nothing good came out of the chatroom and it was a major source of all the site's problems.
