Thanks everybody for the kind words and thanks Pat. You give me too much credit. I always "spared" you as you said because you have a rare quality of being able to admit when you make a mistake instead of being stubborn like so many people are in this world. I always had a big amount of respect for you and all the work you've done at RPGFan over the years so any head-butting we had was never personal.
And you're right about this being the right time to drop my EiC role. It's one of the reason why I was finally able to do it. John was clearly ready to take over and accept this new responsibility which is something he may not have been ready for years ago. So, this was the perfect time as he's clearly a better choice than me at this point in time. Hanging on to the position would not be in the best interest of RPGFan and I'm happy to be able to get more time for myself so it's the perfect situation!
