    Thumbs up Tim (Gigmeister) joins the management team!

    Just to let everyone know that Tim's now been appointed in his new position, after being offered the job as a result of his excellent contributions to the AoS community, even though he's only been here a relatively short while, and so we considered that he's earned the right to have an active input in shaping the future of AoS.

    Tim's enthusiasm and excellent communication skills, allied to his understanding and embracing of the AoS ethos, will no doubt make him an asset to the team and a continued valued contributor to the forum and our community. Those of you who have interacted frequently with Tim in his previous position will now have to remember that he's equipped with a big pointy stick!

    Anyway, let's all congratulate Tim on his promotion to the management team, give him our support and wish him the best of success!

    Marco.
