Farewell from lcaillo as Administrator

This will be my last day as Administrator of Home Theater Shack. The ride has been a great deal of fun and I am very proud to have been associated with the staff and users here. I have made some great friends and together we have made, IMO, a great contribution to the industry and particularly to assisting and educating users in audio and video.

It has been about two years since the forum changed owners, and I intended to remain as administrator until the new crew found their feet and assured a smooth transition. It is clear now that they are taking a more active role in the design and management of the forum. In fact, my contribution has been minimal recently, and the change will be an opportunity to infuse some new energy that will be needed to revitalize the forum. You can see by the recent new additions and revisions that things are happening.

I will still be around, contributing as a plain ole user, and still in touch with the incredible friends that I have here. We have an amazing group of moderators, reviewers, and veteran users and I hope that community will continue to grow.

Be Well. Be in touch.

Looking for me, just google my username. I have used the same one for most sites for many years.

Re: Farewell from lcaillo as Administrator

Hey Leonard, thanks for giving us a heads up. More than that, thanks for all the help you have given to the countless Shacksters that have come here for the real skinny on their issues. It has been obvious that your heart & soul has been in this forum. I could say that you will be missed, but I figure that since this stuff really is in your blood,...I bet that we will continue to benefit from your knowledge. I really hated to see Mech go, I hate to see you leave even more!

The forum has changed & I hope it turns around soon. It is a product of admins like you & the founder, Sonnie. Kinda feels like, just a business venture without you guys. Here's to giving these guys a chance.

Re: Farewell from lcaillo as Administrator

I've always appreciated your insights, especially surrounding the speaker comparison events in the past. Wonder if there is any will to do things like that in the future under the new management. Anyway, thanks for your significant contribution to the forum.

Re: Farewell from lcaillo as Administrator

Yeah..., time moves on. I am glad you stayed on thru the transition. Your experience and comments are always appreciated by me and many others I'm sure. Your patience, interest and contribution in dealing with others with regard to the HTS topic is a true asset here. I'm glad your staying on only now as a free spirit able to fully express your ideas.

I do wonder like Tonto, if this is becoming more of a business venture, I mean its always been a business but..., well its probable more about what contributions are made to the art and science of accurate electronic reproduction of sight and sound and the good will of the people than anything else...

Best of luck, thanks

Re: Farewell from lcaillo as Administrator

Thanks for all you shared and helped others. Sure is a new place around here...☹. I will say this for sure...i always dreamed of having a home theater, dont all men, and I stumbled on this site over three years ago and it was a fast pace, friendly, informative place to be. It was where I learned all that I needed to make it happen.
Sure is depressing watching all the management team crawl away.

Stop by often and keep us stimulated with conversation.
