The moderators are sad to announce that Dax has chosen to leave the team to concentrate on his school and future career, something which I and my colleagues only can encourage. Dax has been with us for a long time on the old forums and has played a major part in shaping the forums we are on today. That's why he and Katy are not just respected members(which they are) but also Forum Founders.

Please join me in thanking Dax for all his hard work.

Is it a bird?! Is it a plane?! Is it Superman?! No, it's Maestro's twitter!
He also makes videos...so if you would want to watch them...probably not...

He's immortal, born in the lowlands of the Netherlands 33 years ago, he's not alone, there are others like him, some good, some evil, for decades he has battled the forces of darkness with Emma-Watson.net his only refuge. He cannot die, unless you take his head and with it his admin powers, in the end there can be only one, he's Maestro - The Forum Admin

Best of luck with your studies Dax! You've been a huge help to so many here. Thanks for always being an easy person to turn to if/when we had need for assistance. I hope you'll stay with the forums and still have the time to chat and post here.

To Dax:

Roses are red,
Violets are blue (aren't they violet?!)
So, you're leaving Mod World,

(First they told me Pluto wasn't a planet
I nearly had it. :mad:
Then, they say there's a thirteenth astrological sign.... :huh:
And I thought, "WHAT?! FINE!!!!")

So, I was walking home one day (technically, I was painting walls all day...)
And I heard, much to my dismay,
The Godfather was leaving the Forum;
I refused to be part of this Decorum :drool:

I screamed and cried :sob: , and hid behind some carrots,
Everyone looked at me and repeated, like parrots,
I sat and sat, and pondered and pondered, and yelled, "Let's turn into dancing foo's!"

The e-family seemed to have looked :lostit: and wondered,
And mistook my statement for a blunder.
Dramatically I crossed the room in an effort to unscrew
A sparkling bottle of champagne, as my friends flew

Into dance. :ohyeah:
The room whirred as couples gathered; and finally, I saw my chance:
Standing on top of joined tables, I clinked my glass
And yelled, "I HAVE AN ANNOUNCEMENT!" quite fast.

The room, once alight with motion, suddenly perked. :0_0:
My voice resonated, "To The Godfather, who preferred to lurk
"In the shadows of our (chat) room, I wish you
The very best on your quest, you rhyming foo' B) ."

Everyone, eyes bright with mist,
Sat to graffiti a list,
Of commonly used Daxisms
Fighting over the marker, there formed a schism.

The following was written:

"SOB, -_o, O_O, eh?, wah wah wee woo wah"

To Dax :king: ,
<3 Lena ^_^

A BIG thanks to the beautiful BoMa, my big sister <3. I know I haven't been around much to talk, but you're more than amazing and I'm so happy to receive this graphic as a gift. Thanks for being so kind-hearted. ;)

Quotes Which Resonate with Me:
"There is no success without determination" -K.S., #24. RIP <3, 2009.
"I don't need any of you to approve of my decisions, I need ya'll to respect them" -Sandra Bullock in 'The Blind Side'.
"People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don't believe in circumstance. The people who get on in the world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can't find them, make them." -George Bernard Shaw, Irish playwright.
