I would like to thank everyone within the development team, the teams, the community and everyone who supported phpBB for the last wonderful years and for the help given to get phpBB to the state where it is now.

I am certain Nils is able to again push phpBB to new levels, with being even more open to the community and being able to manage all the things planned. :) Give him a welcome and support the development team by actively participating in phpBB Development and Support.

Thanks a lot!

A little piece of me just died. :(

You took over a dysfunctional project and put it back on the right track.
You went on to guide it to full restoration (and more) of its glorious past.

Not without controversies, of course, but always reasonably and with listening to other voices.

Thanks, and i hope both you and the project will continue to prosper.
