    New Admin Announcement!
    All,

    Effective immediately Micheal Coley will be the new forum admin.

    I will be stripped of all admin and mod rights.

    Thank you all, it's been an honor.

    God Bless.
    Continued Success,

    Haiko

    Sorry to see you go as admin, Haiko, but I'm sure Michael Coley will do a great job. A better choice could not have been made.

    Thanks for the warm welcome to my new role! As most of you know, I've been an active participant, a vocal advocate, a supporter and a Moderator for many years. I am now accepting the role as Admin for the same reason I've done all of that -- because ABW has always been, is, and (I'm determined) will continue to be a positive influence on the affiliate industry. I hope you all agree.

    While Haiko will be relinquishing his role as Admin, I trust he'll continue to play an active role as an advisor and active member. Haiko is one of most ethical, passionate, intelligent people in the industry, and I count him as a true friend.

    I have the utmost confidence that with iNETs resources, the foundation Haiko built, and your support, we'll be able to take ABW to the next level. There are many great changes coming, and I think with your help, we can make ABW even better.

    One thing you can count on though, is that as long as I'm involved, we'll continue in the same direction, with a focus on ethics and best practices.

    I'm proud to be a part of the ABW community!

    As it has been said before: "I like Mike!" Oops...I guess that was Ike.

    Michael would have been my vote too. Nice. Few people have poured as much as he has into this place. Well deserved and earned.

    Haiko, take a few days and relax will ya??? This 7 days/week job has had to wear you down a little. You deserve a break! Congrats again on the sale. You have done the right thing in my mind, without a doubt. Now quit worrying about this place and go chill a bit.

    Great news for ABW. If it can't be Haiko in charge, Michael is an excellent choice.

    Wow, changes just keep happening. Michael, congratulations on your new role, as others have said, you're a great choice for forum admin.

    Haiko, I really hope that this means that you'll have more time to participate here and that you intend to stay active. The community just wouldn't be the same without you.

    Okay, 'stripped of all admin...' gave me an instant visual of the old western series Branded, where the guy gets his stripes ripped off the uniform, lol. I trust it was a little calmer than that, lol.

    If you are working on what I think you are working on, I am very excited for you, Haiko!

    Congrats Michael.

    Will miss you Haiko.

    Now that Haiko is no longer red, I think he should not go back to blue.

    Maybe grey, or something distinguished, kinda like a master yoda moving on...

    Red= admin
    Blue= forum posters
    purple = the purple bear
    green = mod
    bold = the almighties
    grey = former forum owner

    Just a thought ....

    Grey hair makes you look distinguished, they say, hehe.
