    Well folks sadly it's time for The Wee Bear to say goodbye to his favourite forum.

    Without going into too much detail, I was told by my optician last week I can no longer use the old LCD monitor for hours on end or I would have to suffer the consequences.

    Unfortunately my eyesight is suffering rather badly now and I just want to make my old eyes last a little longer. :)

    I just wanted to say a huge thanks to Dave for asking me to become a mod.

    In the short time I've been here I have had a wonderful time and I feel as if I've made so many friends here now. You don't get that on many forums these days.

    I couldn't leave without saying goodbye to everyone here and would just like to thank everyone for putting up with all my nonsense. :lol:

    I'll be here until Wednesday, then no more net for me apart from a few email checks now and again etc. Grrrrrr

    I'll pop in now and again to see what's happening in the WP world, but not as much as I used to.

    Just wanted to say a warm goodbye to everyone. I shall miss the place terriblly.

    Take Care everyone, and enjoy your WP's as much as ever, oh and once again thanks for putting up with me. :D

    Kind Regards, David. (AKA The Wee Bear)

    I've not posted much, and was a lurker for a long time, but your posts were always informative and fun. Not sure if this forum will be as "alive" without you.
    That is so very kind, thanks Bearach.

    Man. This is such a bummer.

    I hope you're able to make it on here on a somewhat regular basis. But don't ruin those eyes!

    I just hope our eyes aren't ruined from all the tears we shall shed.

    Okay... maybe I'm going A LITTLE overboard. :lol:

    TheWeeBear and I talked about this last week so I am already over the shock. TWB don't be a stranger if there is anything we can do you know where we are. I hope something changes in the future allowing your return. Your spot will always be open and waiting for you.

    A little story from me. TWB is my first Moderator ever the first person I asked to join the team that didn't even exist till he accepted. I think I made a very good choice.

    Just sharing :)
