I haven't told anybody any of this, so it's news to everyone.
Until I have more time in my life to spend back in the Ranger Community, I am leaving all of the Administration of the site to Sk0t(#1) and zabeard(#2).
I am not selling the site, giving the site away or giving up any sort of ownership. The domain is mine and the renewing of the licenses/etc will still be my responsibility.
I built this site because I really do love the community and I have missed the site since I've started my law enforcement career.
What Sk0t says ultimately goes. Then zabeard.
I ask that no changes be made to the:
Site Layout (i want the site to look and function the same. no changes to the menu/formats/etc) Site Rules (i wrote them the way that they are they need no ammending) Forums (organization - we don't need more specificty or sub-categories) Site Merchandise (it has to clear through me, so no shirts printed by random members with R/F on it. Zach can continue to do the stickers. no new logos unless I clear them.)
Other than that, it is in their hands. They know how to use discretion.
I'm going to let Zach forward the contributors to the paypal account he creates and the monetary aspects of the site hosting will be his responsibility.
So, I dunno if this makes sense, but I know those guys have been there for me and you in the past and will continue to run this site the way we core members built it up initially.
Please respect one another, avoid profanity, no pornography ever. Remember, this is supposed to be the kind of site you can look at any part of in front of your friends, family and kids. Take care of it guys.
I'll still be an admin and you'll see me around, but I just can't run the site like I used to. Hopefully that will change in the future. I will be doing some giveaways soon and will be revamping the vendor section. I have some other plans and am going to work on a new homepage.
My personal email is: c 1 0 e 1 5 d 8 4 @yahoo.com and those of you that would need to call me know my cell.
as already mentioned, grand hands to lay it up for administering, and good luck with your new career in law enforcement, thank you for starting Ranger-Forums.com, I love this website and there is alot of obtainable knowledge and knowledgeable members on here. Thanks and see ya around!!!
I never want rf to go the way of the original ge.com
it never will and that's why i'll always be "big brother"... ;-)
but yeah, on a side note... anyone ever considering a career as a police officer - do it. it's the most amazing, fulfilling and challenging career. everyday is something new and you're constantly learning and can challenge yourself in so many ways...
Down on this side of town, Aurora PD works 4 10's, 3 days off... but Arapahoe County/City of Centennial work 5 8's. So it really vary's
Christian, thank you for putting your life on the line, good luck to you, I've been back and forth on if I want to go to the acadamy and become a LEO myself. Just don't let RF slide! You've got good people running the site with ya!
Thanks for keeping us update Christian. I love the site and really like the way you designed it. Two things to remember: 1) Don't get dead and 2) Shoot the hostage. not really on the second one though(both of those lines are from the movie Speed).
