    Many thanks Barry. Beesource is a wonderfull and really noticeable achievement. It works, it is well run, it unites people around the globe, and most of all educates and brings new ideas. You should be very proud of yourself! And if you are ever driving the Route 66 in Finland, drop by.

    My name is Philip, I am a community manager for VerticalScope, I will be working with the small team you know already that manages the site and taking over webmaster duties for Barry.

    We are here to help primarily with the technical end of things and help make the jobs of the current Mods/Admins easier. I posted a real basic run down to answer common questions below. If you have more questions or concerns please feel free to post them in response.

    What are our intentions?

    We bring reliability, support and the infrastructure needed to ensure that the community will continue to be around for years to come. It’s our goal to work with the mod/admin team to help provide the resources and required work to give this community a broader reach, to attract new members, and to better the overall knowledge shared in the community.

    Will leadership change?

    Continuity is the focus here, YOU as the membership work very hard to keep building this community while your mod/admin team keep the walls and the roof up in this place; we are primarily here to make sure the lights stay on. Every community is unique and should always be respected in that regard. You all have established your own unique rules and regulations and a strong reputation that is carried by all of this. For us, it’s paramount to maintain this level of integrity and enthusiasm.

    What am I here for?

    Our primary role is to be the technical contact; you all contributed to building the strong foundation the site was built on. Moving forward we will all work together to keep the momentum and the community growing. We will be on the forum checking in regularly to make sure regular maintenance is taken care of and keeping things running smoothly from behind the scenes. We will also be setting up a help desk on the site for when you have questions or issues with the site or your account and need assistance.

    Looking forward to working with you all.

    Thanks,

    -Philip

    I'll figure it out, Jim!

    Thanks Adam. That is something I will take with me forever, having made new friends from this forum. I hope to be able to do more traveling and finally meet face to face these friends. You could have been one of the early ones to visit, but then you had to move out of Wisconsin!
    Regards, Barry

    Thanks Sybille. I really need to do this. My daughter in Italy keeps trying to get me to come visit her. If I can ever muster up enough of something to get myself on a plane for 9 hours (ugh), I will make the most of it and spend time traveling in Europe.
    Regards, Barry

    Barry, Thank You for all your efforts in bringing the beekeeping community an avenue to share experiences so that improvement is available to all. One of the few forums that provide KASH (Knowledge, Attitudes, Skills and Habits) to enhance the beekeepers who use this site. Thank You so much!!

    Welcome Philip! As you can tell you have a large pair of shoes to fill.
    Good Luck!

    I am eternally grateful for Beesource because it has been invaluable to me, especially in my first 5 years of beekeeping in all I've learned at Beesource. Thanks so much Barry for hanging in all these years, and for the great job you have done here.

    I also have made friends from this site both online and one or two that became face to face friends.

    Welcome Adam!
