Jim Young Resigning as Forums Administrator

Recommended Posts

Quite shocked tho hear this Jim, but I feel your strength of character will carry you through no matter what you face. You have always been a fair and genuine Admin, a gentleman "To a T". A less stressful environment will help you to focus all your positive energy toward a speedy recovery I'm sure. All my very best to you on your path through treatment. 
I did not mention the "C" word, it would be great if we could ban it from our bodies as easily as we ban bad things on the forums.

To your health Sir.

Sincerely Jethro

@Jim Young Sad news indeed mate.

Apply your body a hot fix, delete the .cfg and shaders and come back on your feet. I had prepared some topics that need some moderation ;).

Quick recovery!

Hi Jim,

So sorry and somewhat shocked to read your post this morning. You have performed the frequently difficult job of forum administrator with fairness and tact, coupled with necessary firmness when appropriate and I am certain that the vast majority of forum users have appreciated this. In addition to your undoubted excellent management skills, you clearly have an immense knowledge of all things flightsim related and you have been very generous in using this to help so many simmers, myself included. We are all very grateful for this.

Now however it is time for you to devote your energy to yourself and to the battle ahead. I wish you all the best with this and send you my thoughts and prayers for a good outcome.

I have fought this sort of fight ,that was in 1995 and I am still here thanks to my medical team and 20 pills daily.A small price to pay to lead a full life again.

Keep smiling through the dark times!!
