So as you may have noticed, there had been some changes in the staff recently. Hero and Kyle are no longer administrators, and I am.

Unfortunately Kyle has moved on to other things, as his interest in the Nintendo Pipeline has been slowly decreasing over the last year or two. As such, he sought out a person to take the reigns of the Nintendo Pipeline and see to its future development.

After having a discussion with the administrators and sages, we came to a conclusion that I should be the one to take responsibility for a number of reasons, such as my dedication to the website as whole, my coding skills, and a few others.

There are going to be quite a few changes in these next few days as the other staff members and sages will be discussing certain staff matters. As of this moment, things aren't a hundred percent certain on how the new staff layout will be - we have discussing this over the last couple days but we hope to come to a conclusion sometime soon. Included in the discussion is the current Sage rank, and how it has essentially ran rampant, with the rank dispersed to so many (we hope to change this).

So in conclusion, I hope you all welcome me as the new owner of the Nintendo Pipeline, thank you.

Well I'm really happy to see something being done. You have shown great dedication to this community and this is well deserved. Not to mention the money you have put into this place. I'm sure we are in good hands. Thank you Leif for stepping up and if all does go well, heck we might become a school project for you at some point

Heh I don't think you guys would ever be used in a school project, but putting owner of a forum on a resumé would look pretty good. :)

You know what? I actually have this desktop wallpaper saved in my hard drive, just uploaded to imgur!

That sounds so incredibly dirty.

It seems like just yesterday Kyle said the same thing about Hero. However, I am eagerly waiting to see what is going to happen in the near future. Congratulations Mage, you deserve it!

Congratz on the rank up Mage. Good to see that the forum can still go on even when the admins move on.

I can't wait to see what is done in the future. Best of luck to staff and sages/whatever they'll become, in their progress.

So Mage is the dictator owner now?
Alright, better pull out the signs everyone

In all seriousness, congrats Mage! You have proven to be a truly dedicated member as far as I have seen over the years I think you have the ability to handle the job, so I think this is reasonable decision.
All in all...

Oh the irony...
....
I swear it was all predestined to happen. Mage would eventually become the owner of this site, its a conspiracy...j/k

I'm excited to see what the future holds, Mage. I think you're the right guy for the spot.

I also think this is appropriate to post.

You know, since everyone is posting pokemon related things, I think I should tell you that the very end of GI mag Dec 2012 had a questions asked about pokemon section. I think I'm going to go and post that up now for fun!

Commander we have a problem. Friends are no longer showing in profile, in fact you can't manage a friends list anywhere on the forum anymore from what I can see.

EDIT: Friends has been fixed!
