    I was going to announce this myself, but the <a href="http://www.sciforums.com/showthread.php?t=58432">cat</a> is out of the bag. Indeed, ownership of the forum has changed hands as of a few days ago and I will no longer be involved in the direct operation of the forum. I will retain my rank as administrator for the time being, as will the moderators, but what happens in the future is now in the hands of Zoran and his company. Please join me in welcoming him to sciforums.

    Naturally, I have some mixed feelings about this change. sciforums has been around for many years and I am anxious about what direction it will take without me. At the same time, it's well known that in recent months I've had little time to devote to the site, either to participate or to administrate. The proper thing to do was to find someone who could give this community the care and attention it deserves, backed up with the financial capacities to keep it running. This is one of the finest communities on the web, and I hope that the new owners can appreciate it, quirks and all, and keep it thriving for many years to come.

    I'm not certain how much time I'll be spending around here in the coming months, so let me take this opportunity to thank everyone for making one of the most interesting communities on the web. It's been fun.

    Hi Dave,
    Thanks for establishing Sciforums, and thanks for handing it over rather than letting it shut down.

    I, for one, welcome our new insect overlords. I'd like to remind them that as a trusted TV personality I could be helpful in rounding up others to toil in their underground sugar caves.

    Seriously now...

    Welcome to Sciforums, zox. May you not fuck it up.

    Dave. I have just one question.

    What is going to happen to the donations? I assume some were spent in the last few months to keep it running. What about the remainder?

    Was sciforums paid for entirely by donations? If so, will funding be replaced with ads?

    Something already changed. A whole thread got deleted instead of cesspooled.
