Regime change

As many regular RIBnet members will be aware, until now RIBnet has been run as a benevolent dictatorship. Things are changing slightly, but don't worry there's no plan to go hurtling headlong into a democracy. That would be ridiculous!

I am very pleased to announce that RIBnet is now part of the Social Knowledge online community network. Not much will change, except I shall now rule as a benevolent oligarch instead.

RIBnet's new owner owner, Andy Robinowitz (aka Andy R), will be around here some of the time and has some interesting RIB cruising plans that I'm sure he'll tell you about. He also has a small team of people who work behind the scenes on administration and technical stuff so you'll have someone new to complain to about the members list not working, upgrades, avatars, forgotten passswords and that sort of thing. They got off to an excellent start last week by quickly sorting out the problems with the Members List!

The existing dedicated team of RIBnet housekeepers will be rewarded by having their pay increased a hundred fold. They may even get some new oligarching jobs and a smart uniform. In the meantime I get to carry on as usual, except without any of the hassly bits.

Thanks to everyone who has made RIBnet what it is today, and long may it continue.
