Good Bye and Good Luck
« on: May 04, 2011, 07:25:49 PM »
At long last, all of the legal issues have been resolved and all of the assets of the LLC have been transferred to the NPO.  There may still a few little things that we need to complete, but the NPO is alive and running forward.

There are many new and exciting changes coming in the near future.  I'm sure you will all be happy to finally see the 2.0 Gold release.  There has been some forward motion in potentially adding additional projects other than just the SMF forum software under the Simple Machines umbrella.  This was a longtime goal of Simple Machines LLC, but we were unable to finalize.  (I'll save that information for those involved to share when the time is right.)

While there have been many negative comments made over the past two years, I am still quite proud of the SMF Project and have faith that the new parents of the child I've nurtured will continue to care for and love it as much as I have.

I'd like to thank everyone but I think doing so would sound like I was duplicating Compuart's resignation post from last year.  I could repeat what he said, but I couldn't have said it better.

Best of luck to SMF and Simple Machines NPO.

Take care.
To assume is to hope that those who came before had the presence of mind and capacity to implement the dreams of those who would come after.

You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain. It seems you have chosen which, and now I must do the same.

Take care, Amacythe.
“There is no god, and that’s the simple truth. If every trace of any single religion were wiped out and nothing were passed on, it would never be created exactly that way again. There might be some other nonsense in its place, but not that exact nonsense. If all of science were wiped out, it would still be true and someone would find a way to figure it all out again."

No hard feelings I hope. :) Good luck with your future endeavours, and thank you for all your contributions to the project, and ultimately for allowing it to grow up and move on.

Well, yeah - but he didn't go screaming about it, but kept it reasonably civil IMO.
