    Thumbs up Christmas Carolina Will Continue On!

    I'm glad in having the privilege of providing a place for the fine folks here in the Carolina's and other reaches of the country & world to share tips, tricks, and knowledge to make your light shine brighter. It's been a while ride for the past couple of years but we all have endured!

    I'm transferring Christmas Carolina domain and VBulletin license to another person that has experience, expertise, and exceptional ability to run this community. During this process, I'll be around to help maintain, troubleshoot, and provide assistance when needed. After the transfer process has taken place, I'll introduce them to everyone. Unless they would like to jump in on this thread.

    Thank you for the opportunity and may your light shine bright.

    Don't worry, Christmas Carolina will continue on for many years to come!

    William you have done a great job with Christmas Carolina and how you manage to do all of the things you have going on is beyond me. So Kudos to you for starting a great website.

    William -

    I feel the privilege was ours. Thank you for the time and efforts you've put into this forum. I hope you will be sticking around as a "regular user" after the transfer!

    William you have invested a lot of time, effort and money to starting and running this place for us without ever asking for anything in return. Thank you for all you have done to bring all of us from the Carolinas and beyond here together for a central meeting spot.

    Nope. It is likely Carl. Carl does a ton of stuff on this site and never says a dern word. Carl rocks.

    I've enjoyed it around here for the past several years. I've spent a lot of money making sure we had a place to talk and share ideas. Even though we might not agree all of the time, it's certain we make everyone's Holidays much brighter!

    And, I'm just tired trying to manage everything. I want more free time during the year and more time to make my display a great one.

    Willy,

    Thanks for all your help and advice over the last couple years. I know the effort involved in running sites as I run 5-6 on the side myself. That doesn't include the many at my day job, too. It's not as easy as one thinks. Esp. with a young family, too!

    Best wishes to the new admin and to you in the future of your show! I've seen what you can do when you have no time. I can't wait to see what you Do when you have free time!!!
    - Scott M.

    I'll be around here and there.

    One thing is for sure... with the creation of this site, it helped formed the TASL group and brought together great conventions along with talented folks!

    Huh. "more time to make my display a great one." Hmmmm.....I'm looking forward to seeing it, then, if what you've had with your multiple megatrees and VU meter displays and this and that wasn't already "great." So going from 50 LOR controllers to how many?
