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 [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

hahah thanks for the warning too! From all that we've seen and heard around the forums so far, definitely sounds like bulldogs are an amazing breed - I really can't wait to learn more and share in everyone's experiences

Thanks for the welcome Judy!

It has been our pleasure working with David so far - he's a really great person and been a good friend to us

Welcome!

It's nice to meet you guys. This is a great site but be warned, you will soon fall in love with the bulldog breed. It's hard to spend time around them and not fall in love.

Thanks for the welcome Caroline!

Hiya Caroline and thanks for the warm welcome:)

Ari and I are both dog lovers and have dogs in the family:) unfortunately, my current living situation, which involves a rather small one bedroom condo with my girlfriend just wouldn't be a fair environment for a dog - 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 - at which time a bulldog will be at the top of my list!

Nice to meet you too Judy and Dolly

Nope neither of us are owned by bulldogs...yet... happy.gif

Thank you for coming aboard!

We really appreciate your interest and involvement in BDW. I am looking forward to working with you both. It's been a very positive experience so far!

Hi guys and thanks for

finally making this long overdue announcement.

We (mods) have been talking to our new leaders since Oct and firmly believe they will maintain and update the site to it's high standard and make it better going into the future. They have some pretty cool things on the backburner until they are 100% sure of how things have run and will continue to run.

I think you will all like them, they are down to earth and friendly but at the same time, not afraid to speak their minds. Only downside is neither own a bulldog, but they do own other breeds. Ya think we can covert them ? happy.gif

Welcome to the otherside o your website guys. If us mods can help in answering any questions, we will be more than happy too.

Hiya Matt and Kirby:)

Thanks for the welcome and glad you like our name too!

Regarding your question on forum upgrades - Ari and I will first focus on getting a firm grasp and understanding how the sites and forums work 100% and getting comfortable with the sites and community, and then we may start exploring various options for improvement. For the time being our focus is on maintaining BDW as is and being there as support to the community and mods.

Cheers!
