A quick note to let you guys know that I'm moving on from Motorsport Network and my role as Product Manager of Autosport. 


I've had a great time in this job, and the forums have been a huge part of that. Any PM would love to have a community of active, passionate users of their products who can give quick feedback on what they're doing right and wrong! As frustrating as it is to get bug reports and hear about things we've been trying to build which are broken, it's a lot better than the alternative of not hearing about them!


This isn't really goodbye as I'll still be a member of the forums, just without the shiny Autosport avatar next to my name. In the long run, I'll probably spend a lot more time in Racing Comments once I've had a few weeks of working in an office where everyone isn't obsessed with F1 and motorsport and I desperately need someone to talk to about it!


I'm sure my successor will be along to introduce themselves in the coming days...

Sorry to hear that you're leaving Simon, you'll be sorely missed in your current role. Nice to know that we'll still have your presence in the fora.

KWSM. I think you may have misread the post.

And of course nobody sends in a report saying "Everything works really well and credit is due to you for that," but in fact we should. This is easily the most logical, reliable and glitch-free of the forums of which I'm a member. What can I say, but: thank you ref&>nbsp!

Thanks for your work, your genial approach to it, and good luck at your next post (as it were).

Keep straying into the Paddock too. :wave:
