Hi,

As some people may know Valerie has stepped down recently as the forum maintainer.
Valerie has made the forum what it is, a forum for people of all ages to come and discuss the wonderful hobby of fish keeping.

I would like to offer my deepest thank you to Valerie who keep the forum running over the last few years which wasn't an easy task, which involved tracking posts to the forum, keeping up with sponsors, moderating new users and prodding me to fix the forum.

Valerie did these tasks every day and sometimes without the appreciation she deserved.

Thank you to Valerie

Darragh

Valerie deserves a huge thanks, and probably a statue and national holiday too, she had the patience of a saint! It's a very thankless job 99% of the time.

Thank you all for the very kind words and thank you Darragh for trusting me with your website.

I have enjoyed looking after the forum as well as reading and talking about fish keeping.

While I am not administrating it any longer, I am still keeping fish and will be posting on the forum as a user.

I have made friends through this website and the ITFS and am looking forward to turning up for some future events on the East coast. :)

@jwm, I'll call around to taste these lovely jaffa cakes you promised long time ago ! (I had forgotten about them I hope they're not out of date).

Thank you again.

Valerie

I concur with all of the above. I’m sure it takes allot of time administrating a site like this and it’s very easy for us regular users to take the admins for granted. Thanks the work you have done here Valerie!
