          Awesome. BlackFZR and Rich were pretty much the moderators I can see that had a level head and could deal with things/problems neutrally. Other's hmmm not so much =) sad to see it happen Deej but it is all for the best. Keep it upright!

              Time moves on...... Thanks Deej for all you have done and for keeping going even through some pretty heavy times. Tim Cheers for what you have done so far (heaps) and thanks for what you will do in the future, and all the other hidden faces behind countless keyboards.

                Curious... I assume the rights to use the PSB logo went to Tim also?

                I just noticed the top left of my screen is lacking the PSB logo, though perhaps I just hadn't seen this before.

                              For those of you that know me, long time no see, trust you are all well. For those of you that don’t know me, hi!, I’m the guy that created this place.

                              It is no secret I’ve been a busy guy with interests outside of PSB (work, family, non-bike related interests) keeping me away from the forum for quite some time. I do feel this lack of attention is unfair on you as a user, and the staff/moderation team. I have to apologise for this. I have been feeling the guilt for quite some time however I have not been clear in my own mind on how best deal with this matter, until last week.

                              I have to say, even without my attention, the forum continues to run effectively and this is entirely due to the Staff & Moderators, old and new, who continue the largely thankless task of running this place and dealing with any immediate issues that arise. The result of all of their efforts is greater than the sum of the individual parts and goes to show, really, I’m largely redundant.

                              There is no hiding however that PSB has been in limbo, or I guess more a state of equilibrium, for quite some time without someone at the helm driving the improvements that are required to keep forums and communities growing and keeping up with the times. I think this is unfair on the community and needs to be fixed so it can return back to its previous path of constant evolution and improvements where we all strived to make PSB more entraining, enjoyable, and useful for all of you to enjoy for your bike related....and non bike related, fix (mmm boobies).

                              Simply, as much as I have an enormous emotional attachment to PSB and allot of time and grief equity invested in it, it really is time the effective ownership of the forum gets transferred to someone new for my own peace of mind and for the betterment of the forum community as a whole.

                              There are many ways the effective ‘ownership’ of a forum can be structured, but in considering the most effective way for the future PSB to be managed going forward, I have always thought the Benevolent Dictatorship to be the most effective. Having one person with ‘the power of veto’ helps the forum and staff avoid politics and bullshit that plagues so many associations and partnerships, something which is vital when you have a place run entirely by volunteers.

                              It is also important that the Benevolent Dictator is passionate about bikes (obviously), is actively involved in the community, is well connected with key bike industry stakeholders, has a stable and consistent personality, and is someone that is respected by existing moderators and forum users. It is also vital that this someone understands PSB’s pre and post Perth Extreme African Violet Growers Association era which will forever be intrinsically embedded in PSB’s DNA.

                              Not an easy pick when you consider all of these things.

                              So, in considering the above, I am very happy to advise that today I transferred the majority ownership of PSB to BlackFZR (Tim) for nil consideration. Tim is all of those things I have listed above, and more, and is passionate about the community wellbeing and getting PSB back on a path of evolution.

                              What can you do to help BlackFZR?

                              Firstly, you can help by offering him help when he asks for it to assist with the improvements that are to come. But also you can help by paying money to support PSB. Becoming a PSB supporter helps give Tim the budget to spend on the fixes and improvements that will be needed going forward for the betterment of this forum. He is inheriting a Pty Ltd company that owns a forum that has never in its history distributed a cent, always reinvested in itself, and has very little revenue with fixed expenses to match. It is basically revenue natural which gives no room for improvement without your financial help. Please support PSB today so that it sends Tim a clear message that you want these improvements to happen and you want this very moment to be an inflection point for PSB’s future growth.

                              If you support Tim as you have all supported me and the other Staff & Moderators for the past 12 years, PSB will continue to be most awesome place to hang, and most importantly...give you the opportunity to have an instant relationship with someone you bump into on a ride or in a bike bay.

                              I still look forward to participating in PSB when I can so I can still feel part of this place, but this time doing so without the responsibility and guilt that comes with my lengthy absences and lack of attention.

                              So, with that, thank you all for making PSB what it is, thank you for supporting me and providing me with great friendships over the years, many of which continued to be my close friends today.

                              With much luv and respect to you all.

                              Signing off

                              Deej
                              not been on often but has been a great way to catch what is going on... Great work
