The Crown is Soon to be Passed On

submitted on January 7, 2010 by Solstice in "Member's Lounge"
Just wanted to give a preliminary congratulations to HouTex, who within the next few days will be taking the highest spot as Buxr's Top Contributor.

About 3-4 months ago I said I was going to be changing my voting and posting habits, thus allowing for the line of succession to continue. Although, I had then predicted it would take about 2-3 months. I got the impression that I had been the "Top Contributer" for too long, so long I can no longer remember the length, and for a variety of reasons I began the process of stepping down.

Be careful though. Heavy is the head that wears the crown, and there might be a few people below you looking to usurp the throne.

    This is clearly a case where raw numbers do not tell the true story. Solstice remains the most experienced of the Buxr community, and we will continue to look to him for his leadership.

      That gave me all kinds of warm and fuzzy feelings.

      Guess I'll have to stick in Rambo: First Blood now and watch it before going to bed. Big Grin

    Not to eulogize or anything, but you are clearly a good teacher as you have taught me much, Solstice, even in this weird, twisted virtual community. I look forward to your continued participation howsoever you choose to. And keep it going HouTex!

    Thank you, thank you! I have to tell you, the part I really like most about being on top is the better parking space that comes with it! Big Grin

    Just remember, HouTex, heavy is the head that wears the crown.

      Nah, I don't see it that way. It's fleeting fame to be enjoyed momentarily and passed on to the next successor. It's more like being an Olympic torch bearer, working together with others for a common goal - in this case, Buxr's growing success! If my reaching this pinnacle has encouraged others to be more active and achieve an even higher score, all the better! I hope it has.

      I see you understand part of the reason I chose to abandon the office.

      Was there also a key to the executive washroom or a discount in the Buxr commissary?

      No, but it comes with a free date with Mike upon entry of office. Big Grin

    Coup d'├ętat! Big Grin

    Probably only "King for a Day" again, but I found it amusing.
