We've been roasting and toasting Dave Childs Child in the "backroom" and now it's your turn.

I'm sad to report that Dave Childs Child is stepping down from his Moderator post here. For years, he was also our Tech Admin. Now, he will be a regular member and hopefully have time to drop in.

Dave was brought to us by Ammon Johns. I trusted Ammon's judgement and Dave brought immense value to these forums, especially in our early, more turbulent years as a brand new forum. He worked on holidays and weekends...and answered all my dumb questions.

You may know him for his cheat sheets, some of which many of us can't live without.

Please join me in raising a toast to Dave, and thanking him for his volunteer service to these forums. He'll be sorely missed.

:cheers:

Added: Is it any wonder he leaves? I never even knew his proper name! :rofl:

It's been wonderful having you around to solve and handle technical issues in the forums, Dave.

Your help and input have been invaluable, and have truly made a difference for the better.

Thank you for all of your input, guidance, and hard work.

Sad to see you go, Dave. I simply can't quantify how much I've learned from your posts!

Now that you have so much free time, I want to say good luck with whatever venture that will fill it up.

Ah Jameson. Or something Candian even: Black Velvet for example :drink_together: But I digress.....

Erm, Kim, I must admit that I had heard of ILoveJackDaniels quite a while before I ever visited Cre8 Forums. Bookmarked (favourited) a couple of cheat sheets way back when I was still using MSIE :P

I still think of ILJD as the king of cheat sheets rather than a Cre8 mod.

But Dave, please tell us, what are you gonna do next (now you have all this free time)

Ah, me too...found his site long, long before arriving at Cre8asite...nonetheless, I selfishly hope that by reducing his commitment to deleting forum spam Dave will just be able to spend more time contributing to the forum!

Dave Childs, international man of mystery, is known more in this parts under his nickname Ilovejackdaniels

His website is http://www.ilovejackdaniels.com/ and he's particularly well known for a series of cheatsheets on subjects on CSS, php, java script, and many others.

Thanks, everyone, for all the kind words! The community here is one of the friendliest and warmest anywhere, and that's why I like it here so much :)

But Dave, please tell us, what are you gonna do next (now you have all this free time)


Hah. I wish. I'm working quite hard at the moment, and have a few personal projects I'm juggling. Realistically, I'll probably spend the next few weeks on the v2.0 version of the cheat sheets (about halfway done now).

I selfishly hope that by reducing his commitment to deleting forum spam Dave will just be able to spend more time contributing to the forum!


That's the plan, Joe. I can spend less time catching up on mod issues in the back when I do have time to visit and more time ridding the world of IE.

What a coincidence! Dave Child is known as ILoveJackDaniels too, but does not and never has had an 's' in his surname. :)

It's been Dave "Childs" here for three years, Ammon ... I didn't want to rock the boat :)

And I never knew this or caught it earlier? This is horrifying :)

I changed my blog announcement too. Heaven forbid my mistake should cause you to, um, drink. :flowers:

Just taking on a post to add all my best wishes to you Dave! Looking forward to a lot more contribution from you to the community. And thanks for all the work done as a Mod :)

Just a small note, I am an extensively huge fan of your Cheat Sheets and have used the php and css sheets quite often. I would like to personally thank you for these wonderful sheets. :)

I know some people who go apoplectic when someone gets their name slightly wrong. A lot of people put an "s" at the end of mine, and it never bothered me. Just another phrase I end up ranking ok for :) (I'd be top if it weren't for Dave Childs, euphonium soloist).

If you'd been calling me Nancy McDavechilds all this time, then it'd be a different story :)

I am an extensively huge fan of your Cheat Sheets


(and anyone else who mentioned the cheat sheets)

Thankyou :). I'm constantly amazed by how many people find them useful (I actually got an email a while back from the people who manage the Jack Daniels website to say that they were using them in their office - I was grinning all day from that one).

No kidding? Now how cool is that? I'll bet they had fun writing to you, too.

This base of users is going to miss your TLC, ILJD. :)
