I'm sorry too guys. It was a decision that I thought long and hard about. I just can't do the site the justice it deserves. The site needs a revamp, and it needs a spark to get some new material posted and the forum needs a refresh, etc. There are many things that need to be done and I have shown for some time that I'm not in a position in my daily life and current research focus to be the person that does so. New blood is what is needed.
The good news is the site isn't going away. The site will remain online and the focus will remain on military history research. I will also ironically be more active on the forums as well, since I don't have to worry about running (or not running as it were) the sites I can purely focus on just posting or responding to things on the forum. The day to day upkeep and efforts will be in someone else's hands. I will also be available to assist the new owner if things arise that I can help with. I may even stay on as a forum admin... So I won't disappear, I'm just stepping back and letting someone else take over the drivers seat.
I haven't done the site or it's users justice in many years and it's time for some fresh faces to help turn things around. Thanks for all your support up to this point. It's my sincere hope that you will encourage and embrace the new owner as much as you have me up to this point. I'm confident this is the right things to do and that the site will immediately benefit as a result. In turn so will all of you. I'm actually pretty excited about everything, and I hope you will be too.
