Queenyforever Going Away Party This going away party will run from now until the "official closing" of Queeny's Obsessions (sometime around March 15th). We are starting it now because Queeny keeps moving the closing date and we really want her to see and participate in it.
Re: Queenyforever Going Away Party Some people just want a board with a few friends and some people expect their message board to just grow on its own. Queeny, bless her heart wanted more! She had grown the board by posting everywhere (sometimes posting more than 100 messages in a single day) and making friends with anyone willing to chat, no matter whose board they were members of.
In March 2008 she redesigned her board (now at 159 members) so those of us who were not elves would feel more at home. The banner looked like this (but not for long).
Queeny also decided to add the now famous "drool pool forum" to her board and promoted the new forum everywhere she went.
Re: Queenyforever Going Away Party Just a few DAYS later Queeny changed her board again this time to show the men out there that they were also welcome. Her love for Runboard and all its members continues to grow and she is looking for new ways to share that love with others... The boards newest banner looks like this:
Now I don't go in for cheesy love stories but this video was what jumped out at me when I saw the banner:
Re: Queenyforever Going Away Party On April 16, 2008 Queeny accepted a position as a TRD Moderator and told me "You might regret this..." among other things.
All I have to say is, Queeny, you were wrong about that one! You have been everything and more than anyone could ever hope to have in a moderator or administrator. Yes, I did think about that more than once over the years.
Re: Queenyforever Going Away Party 2009 Started off with a bang, Queeny totally revamped her board and then asked if she could get her board in a BotW competition to show it off... The results of her effort was greater than she expected...
The message boards evolution from a board about Lord of the Rings to one of true friendship and love towards everyone was completed. One thing remained to be done that would complete the cycle but even after seeing Queenyforever's name in the top 20 in Runboard's global HoH no one saw it coming...
Re: Queenyforever Going Away Party On March 26, 2010 a new program of welcoming every new message board personally was started on Runboard. This program was Queeny's idea so she was made a RSF Moderator and given special abilities by Thor that allowed her to see every board created each day!
Having done some of this myself I know what a massive and mostly thankless task that is but Queeny made it work and the program continues to this very day with Erika taking Queeny's place after about a year.
Good times didn't stop there as Queeny traveled to Texas and after much angst and changing of schedules Queeny and her husband sat down with Pastor Rick and PK Captain Sun (my wife) at a local restaurant for dinner.
Re: Queenyforever Going Away Party Queeny is a true Runboard Heart, her desire has always been to make friends and help everyone as much as she can here and on every Runboard she has ever been to (and that is a lot). Let's give her a really big party that she won't ever forget.
Re: Queenyforever Going Away Party Wha? Queeny is leaving runboard too? Queeny has been there since I joined and has been a vital part of Runboard and has always been there to help out runboard site owners and has too many post counts on so many numerous runboards to actually count.
I know personally as a previous head administrator of a runboard that it is the admin's decision as head administrator to decide whether or not to close your board, but as an alternative option, perhaps you could give administrator responsibilities to someone else willing to take over the board after you have given up responsibilities? I know this has worked out great with my board, as it allowed me to take a back seat role in the boards activities which gives others a chance to continue on with the board without it having to be shut down.
Anyways, I am sorry to hear Queeny is leaving and give my good luck to her to her future endeavors.
