Hello everyone. I would like to announce that I am stepping down as admin of the Rancor Pit. I no longer play the game and don't have a lot of time to devote to the site. I feel I'm no longer doing the site or the community justice, and probably haven't been for a long time. Rather than just shut the site down, I am transferring ownership of the site to Whill. He will be taking over as the new admin/owner of the site. I will still be around to help Whill with any technical issues that may come up, especially to ensure the transition goes smoothly. I would like to thank Whill for taking ownership of the site. I think he will do a good job with it and I hope this transition will keep the site around for a long time to come!

Good choice. If anybody is interested and dedicated to D6 Star Wars, it is Whill.

Happy trails, Taal. Don't be a stranger!

Good luck in your "retirement", and all hail Whill!

The King is dead. Long live the King.

Err... Let's think of it more as a Diocletian-type emperor. At least in terms of the end of the reign... not in terms of social and political reforms. Smile

BTW, having worked along side Whill for the longest time, I can't think of a better match. I'm really happy that Whill has the time and energy to devote to the site.

Sad to see you go, Loc. I wish you the best of luck in whatever you do. Thank you for setting this site up and maintaining it for so long. I've met some incredible folks here, and I have you to thank for that opportunity. Godspeed, my friend.

Thank you, Loc. Thank you for creating The Rancor Pit Forums and maintaining it for over 14 years. For a site devoted to game that ceased publication almost 20 years ago, we have created quite a legacy here. Over 6,500 topics and 170,000 posts! And thank you for working with me to keep the site going and for all your help with the transition.

Cheers to you, Loc Taal!

To commemorate the occasion, my son and I watched Star Wars tonight, the one with the rancor pit in it.

It's interesting that exactly 5 years ago today, Loc Taal announced Cheshire, Jmanski and me as Moderators here.

Thank you! I feel there are several others here just as interested and dedicated to Star Wars D6 in this community. I'm in great company here.

More of a benevolent supreme chancellor than emperor. Cool

Most kind.
