For me to resign on Moderator on Steelers Fever. I've already let Prosdo and Mike know so I thought it was appropriate to let all you great members know as well in a thread.

Way back when SF was first starting out and there were only a couple of us trying to get this place jumpstarted, I could see the potential that Mike could see and we wanted to see how far this place could go. Well it's turned into quite a site full of all the information any Steelers fan could want. I was proud to be apart of it then and Im even more proud to be a part of it now. SF has grown into the best Steelers forum on the web and one of the best overall Steelers sites on the web period. Our membership has grown by leaps and bounds and we've picked up alot of loyal,knowledgeable, intelligent, and friendly members along the way. Each one of you has done their own part to help keep SF going and for that you're all to be commended ! Sure we've had our bumps along the way either with spammers or trolls or hosting issues but that's just par for the course and we continue to grow and strive to be the best and set a standard for all NFL websites and Steelers sites to admire.

Having said that, changes in my life have made it necessary for me to step down as Mod. I can no longer devote the daily time it takes to check in, read the threads, and take care of the daily moderator duties that need to be done. Prosdo has done a helluva a job and continues to be an integral part of keeping SF on the level and moving forward. Unfortunately Im not able to continue those things anymore. My work schedule changed, traveling over the last 2 months has been trying to say the least. Just had one vacation a week ago and we plan 1 more in Septemeber. Couple that with family time, riding, and other responsibilities I have and unfortunately I just can't seem to fit SF in on a regular basis and give it the attention it deserves. I wish I could be as most of you have probably noticed for about the last 3 months or so Ive been kinda scarce, just popping in to reply to PM's and read a few threads before heading out again. No one on this site drove me to this decision nor did anyone influence me in any way shape or form . This was something that has been brewing since about April and unfortunately now is the time to pull the trigger.

I know all of you will give the same respect to the new mods coming on board as you have given to me, and to Prosdo.

In the very near future there will be a couple more moderators being added to the team to help Prosdo. They will be named and contacted by the SF management team. Ive already made a couple suggestions and Im sure Prosdo and Mike will make great choices as new additions to the management team. I appreciate everyone being so supportive on SF and helping us mods out by reporting threads and helping to keep the trolls away. You guys rock and while not everyone can get along all the time, SF is a great place to hang out and talk Steelers and that will never change.

I'll still pop in and post as much as I can, and yes Im still as "never say die" a Steeler fan as ever, that will never change ! Last year we won the Super Bowl, it was a dream come true for all of us and I personally will never forget one moment of that season nor the time spent here going through it with all of you. You guys rock and I thank you from the bottom of my black n gold bleeding heart for all the support you have given me, prosdo, and SF as a whole. I may not be around as much as before nor will I be a mod but Im still the same ole BRC.

Keep rocking SF and long live the Black N Gold !!!!!

Matt...

You just made SteelerzGirl :crying03:.

Say it isn't so! :frown:

I am so sad to see you resign your position as Moderator here at Steelers Fever, but I know your reasoning behind it and respect you and your decision. Thank you for everything you have done for all of us here. You have left behind some huge shoes to be filled.

I'm glad you'll still be w/us posting about our beloved Steelers. It wouldn't be the same without you here.

Good luck and best wishes. You know I love ya! :smile:

NNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOO...

BRC's been like the boss as long as I've been here and one of the guys who really got this site rolling. It won't be the same seeing the mod team without him. Can't you just remain like an honorary mod?

Good luck with the changes going on in your life...they're much more important than the things you have to deal with on here.

Thanks 85.... I thought about sticking around as an honorary mod but thats Mike's call and to this point I havent heard back on that issue yet. So for all intents and purposes Im officially stepping down. You and a few other bengal fans that hang here and that Ive talked with on cincybengals are cool people and definately fun to debate with. I'll still around to give you shiate durin the rematches though :laughing:

Hey Matt,

I think its fair to say that as the 'Original Modster' you are the guy who has had a huge hand (to go with your huge shoes!) in shaping how this forum has flourished.

The way this forum has been moderated is one of the main reasons why I have stayed (now you know who to blame everyone!) - and is alot fairer than most other forums I have been on.

Best of luck with work and the rest and I look forward to seeing you post here as a member.

Sorry to see you stepping down Matt but real life responsibilities are understandably more important.
You are a fair and solid moderator and you'll be missed in that role.
Good luck with all your endeavors.

BTW-Does this mean that I can lay claim to Head Ravenhater now on SF??? :sofunny:

Matt, I'm gonna miss you man. You have always been a great mod. You were one of the first people to welcome me to this forum over six months ago when I found this site outta nowhere. I could relate to ya also bein a south central Pennsylvania Steelers fan. Always stay true to the Black N Gold and we will always be here to welcome you back and support you no matter what stage of life that you are in. Well wishes and the best of luck man! Peace.

It's sad to see you resign your moderator title Matt. I remember first coming to the site. You were always the guy to go to with questions and problems. You have definitely helped this site grow. You taught me how to do all the moderating things when I first became a mod. Thanks again for that. I hope you can stay on as a honorary mod.

It's a shame to see you step down BRC. You did everything one could ask of a Mod and then some. Thanks for the hard work you put into the site, and good luck with everything :smile:

Thank you for being a great moderator man. You made me feel right at home when I joined this board 1 year ago along with people like prosdo, clevestinks, as well as SteelersFever to name a few as well as the other great Steelers fans and outside teams fans(But others have as well If I tried to name them all it would take forever). Blitzburgh you felt like a brother to me. I've enjoyed many great times with you man. It's been great posting with you as well as the other 500+ that were here when I arrived and the 1,500 That have joined since. It stinks we can't enjoy posting everyday with one of the best people on the board. Darn work schedules. Well hope to see you around on days you get a chance
