Final Message

With initial reservation I have decided that this project is no wonder worth the effort to contribute to. I came here with the hope of finding a place where I could create a reservoir of knowledge in the areas this place was lacking, specifically in my field of knowledge, astronomy, a field that I contribute to out of sheer joy and the hopes my little contribute will somehow add to the pool of knowledge. OF course I will continue to do that but not here.

To Karajou, thank you for all the assistance and help with templates and images, it was most appreciated.

To JacobB, I held hope that our compromise would allow astronomy articles on this site to go forward, but duke of this fiefdom has decreed there will be no compromise and that even having an "Old Universe View" is forbidden. I know we had our disagreements, many of them, but I hold no ill will or bad feelings towards you. Good luck on your endeavors.

To the other admins, thanks for the help on occasion with stuff. All I can say is I know some of you are not as ideological as you appear here but must maintain that facade in order to stay in the good graces of the dictator at the top. I wish you luck and hopefully something better.

To everyone else who helped with grammar and information, thank you.
