Everyone,

Let me start out by giving a little background.
Four years ago, a "hobby" of AJ's (which started several years prior, evolved into FinHeaven as we know it today. When I first joined as a member, there were just over 600 members (I was member number 661). The staff was comprised of AJ and Dolphan87. As time went on, the site grew in leaps and bounds, needless to say more staff was needed. As moderators were added (me being one of them), and membership grew, 87 found he no longer had the time necessary to devote to the sit. He stepped down as Admin, and they asked me to take over his Admin duties. The site grew more, and a 3rd Admin was needed, and Muck was promoted.
Fast forward...several staff additions/changes later...the site now has over 13,000 members. AJ and Muck now find themselves in the same situation as Dolphan87. Other things in life prevent them from continuing in the capacity, in which they once served. AJ is still the number one guy, the head honcho, if you will... but will be taking more of a "background role" concentrating on behind the scenes endeavors like advertising, promotions, etc... and Muck will still be around, but has asked serve in more of an advisory role, rather than an active admin.
With all that, the site is much too big for one Admin to effectively handle alone. So... we decided to promote from existing staff once again. We also realized that three active Admins is no longer enough, so, moving forward there will be a total of four, in addition to the Moderators.
Our desire is to create a team that has synergy, and talents that compliment each other, so we can continue to move forward as the site continues to grow.
That said... It is my pleasure to announce the new Administrators!

In addition to myself, we now have:

Mindwarp - brings technical knowledge and experience with vB to the table.

phinphanphrommi - also brings server side experience, as well as being a long time member of the staff

inFINSible - one of the very first members (member number 8), has been a member of the staff, on and off, for several years.


We believe that this will create a fantastic team of Admins, and with a few addtions to the existing top-notch Moderators in the near future, we'll have a staff that is second to none! We will strive to carry on with the same visions and philosophies that have made the dream of a 15 year old student, named after A.J. Duhe, the best fan site on the internet.

Congratulations Mindwarp, ppp, and inFINS!

Staff changes are a natural evolution of a succesful site.The important point is that they all will remain an important part of the site in some capacity or other.

Congratulations to the new Admins.They are all deserving.

OK Im going to ask the stupid question, whats the difference in an administrator and a moderator? Oh and I had no idea that we could look up our user number. I joined in March of 2004 and since then there have been 10,000 new members. Just goes to show when you have a great product and staff you have no choice but to succeed. Great Job guys keep it up!

Congrats Guys! this is the best Dolphins site ever. As many out of state Fin Fans know, its hard to keep up with the latest news. This site is essential to fans like myself who like to keep tabs on my Fins from here in NY. Especially during the offseason. I dont know what I'd do without u guys. I dont like the 'Official" Fins site at all. Finheaven is the only "official" site for me. Great job so far and i know it will continue with the recent promotions! Again, Congrats!!

Everyone,

Let me start out by giving a little background.
Four years ago, a "hobby" of AJ's (which started several years prior, evolved into FinHeaven as we know it today. When I first joined as a member, there were just over 600 members (I was member number 661). The staff was comprised of AJ and Dolphan87. As time went on, the site grew in leaps and bounds, needless to say more staff was needed. As moderators were added (me being one of them), and membership grew, 87 found he no longer had the time necessary to devote to the sit. He stepped down as Admin, and they asked me to take over his Admin duties. The site grew more, and a 3rd Admin was needed, and Muck was promoted.
Fast forward...several staff additions/changes later...the site now has over 13,000 members. AJ and Muck now find themselves in the same situation as Dolphan87. Other things in life prevent them from continuing in the capacity, in which they once served. AJ is still the number one guy, the head honcho, if you will... but will be taking more of a "background role" concentrating on behind the scenes endeavors like advertising, promotions, etc... and Muck will still be around, but has asked serve in more of an advisory role, rather than an active admin.
With all that, the site is much too big for one Admin to effectively handle alone. So... we decided to promote from existing staff once again. We also realized that three active Admins is no longer enough, so, moving forward there will be a total of four, in addition to the Moderators.
Our desire is to create a team that has synergy, and talents that compliment each other, so we can continue to move forward as the site continues to grow.
That said... It is my pleasure to announce the new Administrators!

In addition to myself, we now have:

Mindwarp - brings technical knowledge and experience with vB to the table.

phinphanphrommi - also brings server side experience, as well as being a long time member of the staff

inFINSible - one of the very first members (member number 8), has been a member of the staff, on and off, for several years.


We believe that this will create a fantastic team of Admins, and with a few addtions to the existing top-notch Moderators in the near future, we'll have a staff that is second to none! We will strive to carry on with the same visions and philosophies that have made the dream of a 15 year old student, named after A.J. Duhe, the best fan site on the internet.

Congratulations Mindwarp, ppp, and inFINS!

Aw man! This means I'll get banned again for a week! :lol:

Just kidding guys, good luck with the new team. As a long time member, I'm glad we have you guys. Even though my wacky sense of humor tends to earn me the occasional vacation.
