    Happy new year ladies and gentlemen of the Vault! 2016 was a year of change in many ways for all of us here, the most drastic of which was our move to this new platform. We are so grateful for all of your support which has gotten us back to the functionality we saw on Ning and will continue to help us improve the site in new and excellent ways. You are all heroes, no matter what your role has been, as being part of this community forms the lifeblood of everything we do.

    The first change of 2017 is another big one: Todd, who has owned the site since June 2013, has decided that the time has come to hand the reins over to another, though this does not mark his departure from our community. He will still be present and continue to contribute and support as his time allows, and we give Todd our best wishes going forward.

    Now, it is my pleasure to introduce Edana as the Tamriel Vault's new fearless leader! So raise a mug, share your thoughts, toasts, and well-wishes to Todd along with your congratulations and support of Edana, and keep an eye out for new ways to get involved, have your voices heard, and shape our wonderful community going forward.

    Congratulations, Edana! I know the Vault will be in good hands with you at the helm. Here's to 10 more years of the Vault!

    Congrats Edana and best wishes, Todd! Being the site leader in the time of transition is not an easy feat and I'm glad that we have managed to retain the "soul" of the site, in no small amount thanks to the efforts of you two :)

    My word, that is a rather hefty change. 

    Hats off to Todd for all the hard work he's put into the site over the years... all that thankless behind-the-scenes stuff that never gets seen but is keenly felt when it isn't taken care of... thank you for doing it so well that it flies under the radar. :D

    And to Edana: because you're going to do a fantastic job as well, I'm thanking you now because I won't think to when things run seamlessly (which I'm certain they will :D)

    Edana seems like the right person to take Todds place. I approve.

    Congratulations to Edana, and best of luck to Todd. I can't think of anyone better suited to lead the Site!

    The year kicks off in exciting style! This is a big change in terms of how it will effect the membership but certainly not a change to be feared. Edana joined the Admin Team early last year and since then her commitment to the site and its members has never wavered. It is not an easy job being an Admin, always so many things to do, and as I enter into my eighth month on the job I can only imagine what it feels like after a year.

    However, despite being in exactly that position, Edana has always worked tirelessly in the background to secure and ensure the workings of some of the most exciting things we now currently take for granted. Her ability to inspire the Elder Council and all our members has led to motivated Hosts and very generous donations, and it has been Edana's job - often invisibly - to turn that generosity into things we can see and experience.

    The functionality we see, like the tabs which have let us navigate the site like we did on Ning, the ability to like builds and all member content, the badges awarded from events, the photo carousel above the activtiy feed... All these things and more have been directly shaped by Edana's hands.

    So when Legion says there will be new and exciting things happening and ways to get involved, well, you can take that to the bank. Congratulations Edana, it is has been my pleasure to work with you for so long and I hope to continue to do so for as long as you will have me on your team :)

    Thanks so much for the kind words, support, and trust everyone. This site means a lot to me, as it does to Todd, and to all of you. I will do everything I can to make this site some place we all want to log on to every day. My inbox is always open if anyone has any questions or comments. :)

    Thank you so much to Todd for all he has poured into the site over the last several years: the time, energy, money, and love. We wouldn't be here without you. :)

    I completely forgot to say: "We're all going to die in here." :D But seriously, there is no one better for this and you have my full support Ed, as well as the whole Elder Council. We have your back, alright? I just hope you'll scratch mine... :D

    You sick little Orc *Orc smacks Karver so hard he flies across the room* Ewwwww, who wants to scratch Gobliken back! LOL

    Now that I have taken care of the little thing.

     

    Thanks Todd for all that you've done on this site. We appreciate it. 

    And thank you, Edanawadon, for taking the reins. We know good times are ahead. *raises extra glass of wine to you*. Yes, it's 8am, who cares?
