Some changes on the way

I wanted to let you all know that as of a few weeks ago, Paw-Talk is under new ownership. I did this for a variety of reasons, the highest on the list being lack of time to devote to the forum. I'll let Andy introduce himself, but wanted to make sure some things were clear so there won't be a lot of rumors!

First and foremost, I still love you all, and I'm not leaving the forum. I'm simply taking a step down in the hierarchy and handing the reins over to someone else. There's no drama involved here - sorry!

Community wise, you as members are not going to see a huge difference, except in the layout and other minor things. The moderation team will stay the same, for the most part. Some team members have opted to step down for the same reasons I opted to sell the forum, which you may have noticed. We still love them, they're still part of the forum, they just don't feel they have time to devote to the duties of a moderator and that's understandable; circumstances change. I do want to take a moment and thank all of the moderators for contributing so much to this forum - I couldn't have done it without you and have found some lifelong friends among you.

I also want to thank all of the members for being part of this forum. YOU are what make a community thrive, and we have an awesome set of members. New things are sometimes scary, but I think this is for the best, and we'll get through it as a community.

I'll leave the next post to Andy for introduction purposes, then open up the thread for response.

Hey everyone, this is Andy. I have a small business called Social Knowledge (link) that manages forum communities. It was Christmas 2005 when I was at my Aunts house and everyone in my family was bragging about their pets that I had the idea that a pet forum would be great. So I went to do the research and found Paw Talk and saw how nice all the members where and what a great job the mods and admins were doing managing it. So I sent Jade an email and we chatted for a bit. Then all of a sudden last November she contacted me about letting me take over.

I am really proud that Jade would entrust Social Knowledge to take over managing Paw Talk. Our goal is to work with the members, mods, and admins and help foster our community. There is a great team in place and nothing should change very much. We like to take things slow and get to know everyone and listen to what you want.

If you want to see some of the other sites we manage you can look at:

Best regards,

Andy R
