View Full Version : I Have Resigned As A Moderator OF These SH Forums

04-29-2010, 04:23 PM
Some of you may be aware of this and others not, but it seems that the older you get the more time flys by and the more it tends to fill your days. Well, the RW has stepped in and made many commitments which require my attention which limits the time I have to spend here as a Moderator. Therefore I have notified ms-kleaneasy that I am resigning as a Moderator of the SH Forums. It was a difficult decision. The time I've spent here as Moderator has been a joy for me, I've had the privilege of meeting many different people from all over the world, some of these people are now good friends I'm happy to say. I will come back after things have settled down hopefully on a more or less permanent basis, but for right now, I won't be able to be around much. Tomorrow (April 30th)will be my last day here.

There is one other thing I must mention and that concerns the SHIV Screenshot Comps. Obviously I will not be able to run them anymore so April is the last month that I will be running it. Maybe some other individual will step forward and continue the tradition that you all have set so high. I will still be making the winning sigs for those who have won the comps for the month of April.

Thank you all for allowing me to share your time with you on these forums. May God Bless You All. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Oh Yeah, one more thing.

GOOD LUCK AND GOOD HUNTING TO YOU ALL. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Holy Smokes..!! Give up the RW..!! That's the answer....
We can only hope that whoever fills your shoes has half the character you have. I know you've helped me A LOT from day 1, and I sincerely want to thank you for that.
Hope things settle down for you, and are able to come back soon. Best of luck to you.... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Fair winds and following seas, tambor198. You have been a terrific moderator. You have handled the monthly screenshot competitions in a most excellent manner.

Don't totally disappear!

You done good, Tambor. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Seems a spate of veteran mods are leaving as of late. Bearcat retired from mod duties at the IL-2 forums not that long ago, and hasn't visited the forums much at all since. Definitely left a void there. I can see the same happening here with Tambor's retirement.

04-29-2010, 09:13 PM
Good luck in your endeavors. We'll be glad to see you back when things settle down for you.

04-29-2010, 10:20 PM
Best of luck Tambor, you WILL be missed.
I would like to thank you for all the help you have given not only me but many of us and for the screen shot comp.

Smooth sailing mate. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Anchors Aweigh, my boys, Anchors Aweigh.
Farewell to foreign shores, We sail at break of day.
Through our last night on shore, Drink to the foam,
Until we meet once more. Here's wishing you a happy voyage home!

Thanks for all you have contributed over the years. You will be missed.

04-29-2010, 11:38 PM
I completely understand the need to devote time to more pressing matters. You have been in my experience the best forum moderator I've ever had the pleasure to encounter. Best of luck to you and I hope you can make a quick return.

Tis a very sad day indeed. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/sadeyes.gif Tambor, you have not only been exemplary as a moderator but, also as a human being. May the Lord bless you and keep you in His care. You will be sorely missed by these waning eyes. You have been an asset to this forum and the Pacific Fleet. I pray that one day you might return but I also understand, all too well, the restrictions that life can place on one's time. Wherever you go, I bid you good tidings and all the blessings that the Lord can abide, and that's a lot. Thanks for the liberty, Mr. Roberts. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/bigtears.gif

04-30-2010, 02:49 AM
To repeat my comments from PT I will be very sorry to see you go and the open invitation for you to return as moderator at anytime you wish will remain open, we'd love to see you return if time ever permits http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Until then I hope we'll still see you around the boards, take care and hope to see you back with us soon http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/inlove.gif

Echoing everyone else's comments. Even though I am a fairly new member of these forums(November), the amount of help you have given me and what I have seen you do for other members is nothing short of fantastic and has enabled me and several others I have noted, to understand and enjoy this game. I wish you well and Thank You.

The real world can sometimes be a real killer. I know. I'm just about to finish my thesis, which I have to hand in this monday, May 3rd. Several sleepless nights are going to be over. Spent on writing 100 pages... and no time for the Silent Hunter games. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Now it seems to be your turn. And well, the real world must be attended as well, so whatever it is, work or pleasure related, enjoy your shoreleave... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
And well, as allready mentioned, you can always come back again later. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Just saw this post - thanks Tambor - you are truly a gentleman.

Yes I know all about getting old - I call it OLDTIMERS. The days seem to go so fast - I measure my week by the reading of the Sunday Paper which seems to come around every second day.

Dang, just read this, sort of feel like old yeller died..

You have been the best mod in any forum I've been a part of and it will take 3 to fill your shoes if that.

Thanks for all the time you spent, the books you mailed, being an online friend to us all.
I would think above all people here, you will
be the most sorely missed. Hope you come back and visit us soon.

May the waters be peaceful to you my friend.

Wow ... I just found out about this after another long absence from attending the SH forums and now Tambor is stepping down. I've missed a lot of things http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

A very good friend who always support and help the members sincerely and without asking for any return. It's good to know you as a Moderator and a good friend Tambor and hope you will come around every once in a while.

Thanks for all your support and hard work my friend. Those competitions were so much fun and your care for all your friends will never be forgotten.

Hey Tambor old friend, I just saw the news.

- I'm only a couple months late... lol, but I too have had some Real World issues to deal with.

It's people like you through selfless dedication to 'the cause' that keep places like this running. Thanks!

Happy Hunting!
