MrBenn wrote:My final act as Foundry Foreman (as the result of much discussion and with the agreement of the CA team) will be to merge the two foundry workshops together. Since we introduced the coloured topic icons, it is easy to differentiate between maps at different developmental phases - which was a major flaw of the previous single-foundry forum. Bringing the two workshops together should prevent feedback from being "inappropriate to the developmental phase", and will hopefully make it easier to keep maps alive!

I leave my comment, Foundry still the same. I come back, and they're merged now! Omg!! It's the dawn of a new era...

Farewell, MrBenn. You have done a splendid job for the past years! Hope you enjoy your new foundry-less position!

It's a pitty to see you go, MrBenn. I remember our first chats about Research & Conquer, and how helpful you were with this complicated map. :) But having worked so hard during those years, you also deserve to take a break, step down and enjoy the result of all your efforts.

thenobodies80 is a worthy successor. With his leadership, the Foundry will continue to improve building on the solid base that MrBenn has given to all of us as his legacy.

Many thanks, MrBenn, for all your work, and do enjoy whatever new (or old) pursuits take your time in the future.

Congratulations, thenobodies80! I expect you will bring your very best to the office of Foreman, and that should be very good indeed.

To be fair when you first got your CA job I was pissed you got it and not me. Hindsight is 20/20, you did a marvelous job in keeping your section of the Foundry in tip-top shape even as your responsibility grew to greater heights. Sad to see you go, but hopefully we can carry the baton just as far.

Wow, this is a real end of an era. I know that we've had creative differences at times but we always worked through them. At the heart of it you always had the maps best interest at heart. You did a damn good, bloody good, job and no one can take that away from you. It's just gonna kinda feel weird with out you on top. That being said I think that TheNobodies08 was an excellent choice, and he is sure to do well in his new position. Well done!

Good luck thenobodies80.
