Like a good ref., you don't really notice a good moderator (Pete). All the very best in your future endeavours.

Sorry both you and David Powles ( editor of the EDP ) are leaving looks like Newsquest are making lots of changes  which don't suit everyone.

Thanks for all the support you've given ncfsc, pinning threads, sorting out Archant quiz teams and more

Wish you lots of  good wishes in whatever comes next for you

Good Luck to Connor/Paddy on the sports desk taking this messageboard  over, I ll give it a few months before Newsquest steps in 🤣

I have heard that Cambridge is taking over, 8 new pages of threads every day!

I think you will find Cambridgeshire Canary is in fact a sophisticated bot AI created by Pete Raven.

Designed to post random Norwich City related content periodically, to propagate clicks on the Message Board and subsequently generate ad revenue.

(I don't see the harm in telling people now you're leaving, Pete)

@PeteRaven, @Pete RavenThank you for your work on this messageboard over the years, and good luck in your new venture.

I’m sure that I had received a few e-mails over the years to tell me that I had overstepped the mark and my post had been deleted but I can’t find them now-maybe they’ve been deleted? 🤔

Pete, you have treated us with much more patience and good humour than we deserved. Best wishes for the future.

Gahdnabbit.

Good luck on the ventures new Pete. I have to say you've been nothing but fair, and above all else, a very decent person, with running this board all this time.

I look forward to seeing you post unshackled from responsibility. Please don't be a stranger.

I was Official Fact Check Bot and I used it to like one of my own posts...

But Peter the Deleter banned my robotic friend for life, he was so sad he took himself to the scrap yard.

On your last day, you should post a spoof story on PinkUn+ with the headline, 'Why aren't we The Athletic?'

I don’t think that would be a good idea tbh but might be needs must. Connor has copped some flak on here at times, from me on his unnecessarily verbose style with points that last days on his pod. Pete had a good distance from the front lines to cop any flak.

I have decided to head off to pastures new and next Friday will be my last day at the publisher formerly known as Archant.

I have been assured that this messageboard will still exist when the sites migrate over to NewsQuest. I just need to decide which fortunate soul on the sports desk will be responsible for moderating the forum.

I'll pop my head on here every now and then as a fan under this profile:

https://forum.pinkun.com/index.php?/profile/16797-peteraven/

All the best and OTBC!

Cheers Pete. Best of luck and thanks for all the hard work!
