Goodbye

Postby robotman » November 4th, 2016, 9:55 pm

Hello Scioly.org

As you all know I have spent the last 5 years running Scioly.org, I started out on this site in 2008. It has been a lot of fun and an incredibly rewarding experience. However, I have spent a large chuck of my life since middle school competing in Science Olympiad and helping out on Scioly.org. I have been posting constantly, and most likely added more words to the wiki then all my school essays combined. As time has passed I have had less time and energy to devote to improving our site. I have had my fill of banning bots whose goal in life is to advertise for their shoes, or for "performance" drugs. I have had my fill of rollovers and spammers. I started passing the torch almost exactly a year ago, and tonight I have completed the final major hurdle. I am handing Scioly.org over to the next generation to see what you can do to make this site even better. Good luck to all of you. This has been the last chapter in my Science Olympiad journey.

Humbly,
Robotman

The changing of the guard. You've been a great leader for the site, robot. :)
