So I have posted updated forum rules, these should help clarify a number of issues that have been unclear, moderate some behaviours that have emerged in the past year and a bit and provide a strong base going forward.
The reason I called this thread "A final act" because that updated post of the rules is my final act as an Administrator here on the forum.
I will remain here as a member of this forum, but it is time for me to move on from staff duties. I wish all the remaining moderator team well, and believe they will continue to do a great job.
"One day I shall come back. Yes, I shall come back. Until then there must be no regrets, no tears, no anxiety. Just go forward in all your beliefs and prove to me that I am not mistaken." RIP Jason Ward 1969-2019
