I'll miss reading your articles in the magazine and will look forward to your contributions to the online column. To be honest you are/were my favorite Maxpc editor (followed closely by Gordon of course :wink:). I want to thank you for everything that you have done for the Maxpc online community. Great times indeed! Will you be shifting to another publication?I still have one nitpick about you...why did the animal fun facts have to go from your video card reviews?

Will is starting a new site. I don't know if we'll continue doing animal fun facts over there, but I promise you there will be much surprise and delight to be had.

Will,

It's been one of my biggest honors and pleasures to work with you at the forums. You've been a phenomenal editor-in-chief and it's going to be hard to imagine Maximum PC without you.

I wish you and your family all the very best.

Sincerely,
Mark "[Ch]amsalot" Miller

Thanks for the articles and for keeping in contact with the reader/forum community. We'll all have to get ready to heckle the new rookie EIC. Good luck, and let us know where you hang your e-shingle.

I looked at the title, then had to back track to the main page - can't believe it. If it's the opportunity of a life time like he said, it's going to be pretty freaking epic.

Good Luck Will in your endeavors, and know I will always enjoy listening to your podcasts and your stories. Stop by every once in a while once if you can

AJ

Thanks guys. I've loved working here over the last decade, but I'm really excited about the new site (to the point that I'm already working on it during the time I'm supposed to be off).

I've already had one opportunity of a lifetime. To get a shot at another is really, really exciting :)

To be quite honest with you Will, I'm deeply impressed by the amount of time you've spent at MPC while helping to guide the mag along its course. The computing industry can get awfully boring and "ruttish" at times, so to see you leave here for something that has your excitement level so high is a pleasure for me to see.

I always hope good things happen to good people.

I'm really looking forward to your next project, Will .. enough so that I'm actually going to sign up for a Twitter account.

You did win, Will...

a.) Have two shots at a once-in-a-lifetime dream is a MaximumPC Kick-Ass 11 award in itself

b.) I've also became a 'Twitt.' To quote another frequent forum poster...

Well this makes me very sad. I haven't had a chance to listen to the podcast yet. Is the new Web site a Future US property?
I've been fearing for Max PC for a while now. Not because of anything you guys are doing, or anything like that. Just because magazines in general are having tough times. I'm not sure I could find the same content online; I'm still a print guy at heart. All that means that if anything were to happen to the mag I might quickly devolve into the kind of guy who just kicks a computer when it doesn't work and then calls the Geek Squad (shudder).
So what are the plans for editorship? Too early to announce?
