    New Forum Management

    All Nokia discussion board member,

    I will be retiring on November 18, 2012 and I can think of no more suitable replacement than Hamish Willee who has made major improvement in the Wiki for the past two years.

    Please welcome Hamish Willee as the manager for the discussion boards.

    Ron

    Farewell Ron, wherever you fare - read that on an other site where you also have done some miracles. These 7 years have been an interesting journey
    G'day, Hamish - if that is a correct interpretation of your location line.

    Hi All

    Thanks Ron for your very kind introduction, and everyone else for your welcome. "G'day" is indeed the correct term, as I'm based in Melbourne, Australia (my Nokia team is in Tampere, Finland). Looking forward to working with you!

    I've created a this blog to briefly show my appreciation to Ron - feel free to add your comments too.

    Regards
    Hamish

    So, now it is official :/
    Ron, I wish you the best. We will miss you, certainly.
    Thanks for all support and patient during all this time.

    Hamish, are you ready for attending meetings in the middle of the night ? Just kidding
    It will be excellent to have you as our new manager. Congratulations !

    Hi Marcelo

    Well its official that I'm community manager for the forums (along with wiki, blogs, and shared responsibility for projects with Tomi). There is another role for working with Champions, who will be introduced to the community very soon.

    I'm based in GMT +10, so provided you mean the middle of your night, and not the middle of mine, fine :-)

    I'm fine with meetings that have a clear agenda and cake.

    Thank you. Tough shoes to fill, but the moderation teams that Ron created will doubtless cover for any shortcomings I might have.

    regards
    Hamish

    What kind of cake? Where should it be delivered, or will you come and eat it where ever the cake is available?

    I'm not afraid to answer the hard questions. My favourite is raspberry coconut cake, but the only one that wouldn't be acceptable is wedding cake with traditional horrible marzipan icing. If my boss can find the budget I will come to the cake, but otherwise I guess I'll just have to buy my own. I think we're moving off topic, but seriously, if we need to have a meeting happy to do so.

    Re: New Forum Management

    Thanks for many years of excellent work with the Developer community Ron. You will be missed here. And agreed - Hamish is definitely the right guy to take over the job.

    I'll also highlight at the same time that folks might have better chance reaching me through here nowadays, though I'm still occasionally reading this DiBo also (and try to maintain a few things in the wiki).
