Aaron, many thanks for all the work you did to make WtW the great site and community it is. I'm glad to hear you won't disappear from the site entirely. I hope you'll come up with some more good ideas for rallies, for instance. And, best of luck with your mining history website!

To Mr. Dog, thank you for providing this site to exchange information, tales and facilitate discussion. I wish you the best in your present and future endeavors.

To those how have contributed or whomever may care, thank you for your threads, photos and comments. Their influence on me has ranged from informational to entertaining to therapeutic.

To those who take over, welcome and I wish you the best in your future endeavors too. My second wish is you don't screw with the functionality of the the site. Of all the various sites I visit both personally and professionally this one is by far the easiest to use.

+1 on everything that LuckyDan said. Many of us take for granted the many web sites we go to. Someone is always doing a lot of work to keep it up and running. I hope all the information contained on this site remains for years to come.

A BIG thank you to all the webmasters out there who in-rich our lives.

Thanks for the warm welcome, it's really a nice group of people here.

We will proceed slowly getting to know everyone and asking for input as we evaluate changes in the future.

"Changes">>> that's a term that may bother some.

Change is usually and mostly good. But I think we have all seen web sites become less than desirable due ads, re-layouts and becoming more difficult to navigate. Some here are very savvy and adapt well, there is also a mix of older folks...

But, we are all in this together to make it better!

As for changes, I know that sounds scary. I have lots of older members on some of the other sites I manage and after the first couple days they settle right in. The plan is to not change a thing for a while since there is a LOT to this site with all the spots and info that have been added outside the forums. For the foreseeable future everything will remain the same.

Some things I'd like to add would be a truck showcase similar to what we have on my Airstream trailer site:
http://www.airforums...rch-by-popular/

Here is another example on the my Fiberglass RV site:
http://www.fiberglas...rch-by-popular/

The neat thing that can be done with this system is we can slide and dice the views. So if you wanted to see all the discussions about Toyota trucks with campers we could show them along with photos. Same goes for looking at all the trucks that are outfitted with one of Marty's All Terrain Camper. You can see an example of this at these links:
Casita: http://www.fiberglas...a trailers.html
Bigfoot: http://www.fiberglas...t trailers.html

This allows us to add more granular organization to the discussions without changing the forum structure. This helps organized such a vast amount of information. Another neat feature is drop down menus in the header so you can navigate deeper into the site with less clicks. Sometimes getting around can have a learning curve so we can leave the current methods in place (old habits die hard) and add some new ones.

I'd also like to get iPhone and Android apps made for connecting from your mobiles (I will work on that soon).

It looks like this isn't your first rodeo.

Checked out your links and they looked great.
Really like the Android app idea especially since we tend to wander here.
