Bulldogs World Admin Announcement

Hello BDW members,

First off, we hope that everyones 2010 is off to a great start! My name is Nate and along with my partner Admin, we want to introduce ourselves as the new admins for BulldogsWorld.

It is under a rather unfortunate situation that we must introduce ourselves - David had planned to introduce us, however, his wife, Heidi informed us recently that Daves iritis has gotten worse and that he cannot go on the computer in order to make the introduction personally. we have been working closely with Dave for the last couple of months and will dedicate ourselves to maintaining BDW as the amazing community that it is today! we will be taking over the day-to-day technical administration, webmaster duties and the main site and together with your current forum moderators - Cathy, Kim and Sue, we will oversee BDW going forward.

As you may have noticed, David has not been able to dedicate much time into updating and maintaining BDW for the past few months, hence the change in the moderator roles. He has been dealing with serious eye problems which have restricted his ability to be in front of a monitor. In light of these eye problems and after many conversations with we, David decided to bring us on as webmasters and administrators at BDW.

As a brief introduction to our team: my name is Nate and along with my partner, Admin, (who is our resident tech geek and will handle the technical side of running BDW). We make up our two-man band at Offleash Media. After months of learning, we hope to contribute to this community in a positive manner and be as helpful with day-to-day stuff as we can. At the same time we plan to keep all of the principle forum rules, which span all three forums, the same.

Let me share a little about Offleash Media.
we specialize in managing online dog-focused communities. We bring to the table infrastructure and resources that will ensure BDW will be around for years to come.

What are our intentions?
Our number one goal is to provide the resources required to allow BDW to continue on as the same wonderful community that all of you have built in the past 10 years. We want to continue making this the community that allows passionate Bulldog owners and enthusiasts to share their knowledge with the rest of the community and move it forward into the new decade. From a professional standpoint, the way we stay in business is by developing products and services based on the needs and requests of the community, very similar to what Dave has already done with the Bulldogsworld Store.

OK, so you might be thinking of a lot of questions...

How will this affect our community (mods, members)?
The great part is - that it actually doesn't affect you at all. The moderators will remain, if you're a member of the forum, just continue to enjoy the site and contributing to the community. The rules of the forums are the same rules that have been in effect for years and will remain exactly the same - please read the rules of posting and feel free to consult one of the moderators if you have any specific questions.

Will the leadership change?
Not at all! We truly believe that what makes each community successful is unique and if it aint broke, dont fix it. It is very important to us that the culture and community remain the same.

What will Adminss role be?
Our primary role will be technical in nature. If you see content on BDW which needs updating, or have a technical issue related to the site, contact us at [email protected] . We will check the site regularly to make sure that if there are issues that Adminse, they will be handled promptly and correctly. We will also be working to ensure this community is continually well supported. However, since we are dog lovers too, we will also be jumping in from time to time contributing where we can, and commenting on any adorable new photos or any other fun chatter

Let us know if you have any questions or concerns. You can post them here or send us an email at webmaster@bulldogsworld.[email protected] and well do our best to answer all your questions. See you guys around! We look very forward to becoming a part of your community and hope that you will all give us a chance to prove that we have the best intentions for BDW!

Warmest Regards,
Admins

Big bulldog kisses and a sloppy snort of welcome.....

to you both, from Lily and Chunk. The Warden and I are glad to have you two on board. We love our cyber community here that Dave has made possible for all this time and continuing its legacy is paramount. There are so many, many 2-leggers and 4-leggers and until recently, a three-legger (RIP sweet Raven)who benefit from the daily posts here on this frequency. We wish you the best and a lot of luck in your endeavors and look forward to all your contributions. I lift my glass of rum in your honor! Salute! I mean, down the hatch!

Hiya Tomoko

Very nice to meet you too:) Thank very much for the warm welcome

BDWAdmins's picture

haha oh no:)

Suse - unfortunately we don't speak a word of German:) I saw that you were from Germany and did a google search for "Thank you very much" in German heheh:)

BDWAdmins's picture

Thanks to you both Amy and Sophia:)

haha sounds like it will be the collective goal of the community to convert Ari and I:) I grew up with a Toy Poodle, named Popo:) (like the corn dogs hehe) and also had a bearded collie in my family - unfortunately I'm currently living in a small downtown condo with my girlfriend and it just wouldnt be fair to have a dog stay with us - when we move to our next home (which is hopefully in the next couple of year) I'm hoping to re-introduce a dog into our family!
