With apologies for the belated nature of this announcement, Guigo (Atkingani) and Tony (Tony R) have stepped down as admins, and rejoined the ranks of special collaborators.

Guigo has been a member of the site since 2005, and has been on the admin team for several years. His calm and friendly demeanour has resulted in him making many friends around the site. He was in many ways the perfect admin, resolving issues through negotiation rather than confrontation. I had the pleasure of meeting Guigo a few years ago with his lovely wife. I can assure you he is even nicer in real life!

Tony joined the site as “Reed Lover”in the very early days of the site. Many of us recall his informed debating style, especially those epic debates with Maani, and how he later reinvented himself as Tony R. In my personal opinion, Tony has done more than anyone else to make the site what it is today. When tempers got frayed Tony was always on hand to step in and resolve matters, sometimes even resorting to telephone calls to other members of the site. Much of what Tony has done for the site has been transparent to the members, but please be assured, he has dedicated an incredible amount of time and effort and we are all the beneficiaries of his work.

I am sure you will join me in wishing Guigo and Tony well, and thank them for their major contribution to Progarchives. I am pleased to say that both remain regular visitors and contributors to the site.

On the other hand, Andy Webb joined the Admin team a few months ago, and has quickly established himself as a fine member of the team. Andy brings with him a youthful enthusiasm which bodes well for the future of the site.

I hope Guigi and Tony enjoy their "retirement" as they've both earned it, two of the most important contributors to this siteClap.

Youthful enthusiasm all the way! Great to see people dedicated to this site.

Guigo and Tony have my ultimate respect for their contributions and manners, I hope they continue contributing to the site in one way or another.

Best wishes to both of you. I, for one, have very much appreciated Tony's calm, measured, diplomacy.

Oh, so many great memories, and so glad they're both staying on the site.   My affection for Guigo is only matched by my gratitude to Tony, and my respect for them is even greater.

And I'll be expecting a call from Tony soon.   Collect.

A real shame to be losing you both from the team, but a well deserved retirement after years of fantastic service.

Now, about those pension rights...

ReedLover was before my time here, but judging by what others have told me the statement "Many of us recall his informed debating style" is quite funny.
 
Well done to both, a fully deserved retirement.

Reed was known for his strong views, vigorous debating style & full & frank exchanges of opinion. I'm restrained from saying more under the Official Secrets Act

Er, since Tony is retiring who is taking on the role of the person the Doctor gives massive headaches? Confused
