Time For Change ... New Administrator Wanted!
When I came here as a flickr refugee back in 2013 this group was already in existence and doing pretty well it has to be said.
However, the chap that was running it at that time had decided to leave ipernity and asked if I, as a fellow petrol-head, would mind taking over as administrator - something I was happy enough to do and since then I've tried to encourage as many more people to join and participate in it as possible.
Today, the group has over 40 members and contains nearly 3,000 images of classic cars from around the world.
Nothing lasts forever though, which is why I've decided it's time to hand over the baton to someone else, that's assuming there's someone out there willing to look after Classic Cars International once I've vacated the administrator's post?
I did think about just closing the group, but that would be such a shame given the support it has attracted over the years and a betrayal of sorts to all those people I've encouraged to join or invited to submit specific images.
I also thought about just leaving the group and letting ipernity appoint a new administrator, but there seems little logic to how that process works and it could well see the group being passed on to someone who isn't even active on the site anymore.
So, I'm putting it out there and offering it up. Ideally, I'd like the new administrator to have a real interest in classic cars of all types and be up for the challenge of taking the group forward, but really all that matters is a willingness to keep the group alive.
I intend to keep the offer on the table so to speak until the end of November. If there are no applicants by then though I'm sorry, but I will be closing this group as I don't want to see it passed on to someone who is no longer involved with ipernity thus leaving the group open to become a dumping ground for all sorts of inappropriate submissions.
Hopefully, it won't come to that and one of you kind people out there will be willing to take over ... time will tell I guess.
In the meantime, I'd just like to thank everyone who has supported the group over the last few years - it's been a pleasure to view your photographs.
