Over the weekend, we learned that Bill Slawski, aka bragadocchio, has stepped down from his administrative duties at Cre8asite Forums. Bill has been with Cre8asite Forums, pretty much since the start, back in the Yahoo club days - as a moderator in the Yahoo forum.
Bill said he will be stepping down from moderating but will hopefully continue to be active in the forums as a typical member. Bill said, "I am stepping down as an administrator at the forums, though I hope to continue as a participant." Why? Bill said, "I've been going through many professional and personal changes recently that have begun to limit my ability to give my role as an Administrator of Cre8asite Forums the time that it deserves."
Bill reassured me that he won't be leaving completely. Bill told me, "You'll see me here. I just won't be in the back rooms cleaning up spam, or participating in some of the threads back there. "
So, all in all, this is not a complete loss of a legend. I honestly cannot see Bill stop contributing - it is just his nature and without those contributions, the SEO/SEM world would be at a great loss.
Also, make sure to check out Bill's excellent blog named SEO By The Sea.
Bill, on behalf of the SEO community and myself, thank you for all your contributions over the years and we look forward to even more as the industry continues to grow and mature.
