You may have noticed that Adrian Jordan was recently promoted to Emperor of the world, oops, I mean - Global Moderator.. But what you may not have noticed is that our previous Global Moderator for many a year, the legendary William Swiger - now has a 'retired' prefix to his global moderator status, and has stepped back to let Adrian keep you rowdy types in check.. ;-)
Typically, William did not make a fuss about it or even start a thread, but after so many years of selfless service and countless gifts he has given to members here straight out of his own pocket, I thought it only fitting that this announcement be made to give you all a chance to thank him for his tireless commitment to the SBG community.
But don't worry, he isn't going away - just stepping down from the demanding and often thankless task of being a global moderator for what has become the most vibrant and still the friendliest Sword Forum on the interwebz..
So please take a moment to raise a glass and a toast to Bill!!
Hahaha, William wanted to keep it on the down low, but I'm glad something got posted. He's helped me out so much, taught me a ton of stuff, and extended his generosity to me many times. Not just me, either, but many folks here. He's going to be a real, real hard act to follow. I may have to pull the "Look, we're not better or worse than the other, just different" card so I don't just look like a putz all the time, hahaha.
Thank you so much for everything that you've done for me and the forum, William. I appreciate it a lot more than a weak "Thanks!" message can convey.

ouroboros: What's the industry?

RufusScorpius: I've been busy since I got home. if N America wasn't enough for me, we are expanding this year into Latin America. Because I don't have enough on my plate as it is.
