Jefgold stepping down

Post  Kon61gold on Sat May 06, 2017 9:16 pm

Hi Guys

After 16 years at the helm, I have decided to step down as Manager of the Forum and pass the Mantle to Kon61.  At 70 years, I've had plenty of experience in various life styles including detecting so now its time to pursue other facets of my life.  I have been spending less time detecting these days and I can see in the next six months due to problems with the club I'm with, I'll be detecting less.

I'm pleased with the Forum for it continues to be a focal point for many members and we do contribute to the knowledge of Gold Detecting, in fact I feel we are the most important contributor regarding Equipment, especially Minelab as well as other brands.  We are looked at by over 300 people each day, many of which are not members but just want information. Consequently I have achieved my aim for the forum.  We haven't pleased everyone but with over 7000 members (most of which are inactive) not everyone has respect for others, they couldn't give a stuff.  Unfortunately gold does that to some people  and they forget that the best treasure is their mate.  Its their loss. However over the years I have met some terrific people, they know who they are, and I'd like to say thankyou to them just for the pleasure of meeting you and sharing the gold experience and the forum.

Kon is a great guy.  In my position, you get to learn about people through what they write and Kon has approached everything through a level head, and lots of experience.  You couldn't ask for a more competent person.  However he will need your help just as I did and I know you will assist him, which I appreciate.

In order for the transition to take place, Kon has to assume my identity, in other words, Jefgold will no longer be on the forum, so we will be changing my name, password and email address.  Its has been a pleasure to manage the forum over all these years and thanks for being part of it.

All the best

Jeff

Thanks Jeff for all the hardwork and many hours plugging away on keyboard!  

If this is a 'retirement' you have certainly earned it.  I hope you find a retirement nugget to go with it on your next trip out!

All the best & thanks for helping NAPFA along the way.

And so the crown passes to Kon!

Cheers

Hi Jef.
Good luck for the future. Sorry to see you leave.
I have come and gone a few times on the forum but I still feel like Newbie compared to you.
A job well done.

Thanks everyone for your comments. I always worked on the premise that if I wanted to know something then others want to know as well. So the forum was born in the year 2000.
I'm pleased that it has helped so many people and will continue to do so.

Jeff

Well done Jeff. 16 years is a long run and you have done it better than most. All the best for the future I know you will have a great time no matter what you do. It has been a lot of fun and I know it will continue with Kon at the helm.

I know from experience that 70 is the new 60 so no matter what you do you are going to have time to do it.

All the best, Jim

That's right Jef, 70 isn't old.
When I cracked 70 my doctor said. I don't know how you do it Adrian, you haven't gone to the gym or exercised in 30 years and yet you have the body of a 20 year old......and the mind of a 2 year old. Laughing ....and I think. If I had this body when I was 20 I woulda shot mself. Q24

Jefgold, I am one of the many members who has not been active for a while, but I certainly appreciate your efforts and everyone else that contributes to the forums.  Your dedication has allowed us newbies not to make the same mistakes and most importantly learn so much faster (some of us are very slow learners). Thanks Jefgold and enjoy your new spare time.
