Sir Ollivander Is Stepping Down

Sir Ollivander is resigning from the positions of Senior Administrator and Chief Challenger at Sink Into Your Eyes web site effective the end of June.  He is stepping down from his areas of leadership and responsibility to become a regular member of SIYE.  The staff of SIYE have been aware of this move since the beginning of June.

My private and family life is beginning to take on more of a priority.  Working with SIYE is beginning to take a back seat when it comes to managing my time and energy.  I don’t want SIYE to suffer from my lack of attention.

Since December of 2003, I became an avid reader of SIYE stories.  Little by little, I was asked to join different positions in SIYE to the point of Senior Administrator under the owner, Robert.  I have enjoyed running the web site and adding my contributions.  I even had the pleasure of meeting Robert when on vacation near his hometown a few years ago.  Although I am leaving my positions, I will still be around, reading a story here and there.  I wish to thanks everybody who have made my jobs so easy.  Take care and best of luck to all.

Thank you very much for your cheerful service to the site, Tom! In the 2+ years I've been on the site, you have stood out as being the most immediately responsive and helpful to my needs and wants as a writer, While there are a fair number of great people on this site, there was one who was 'greatest' in my eyes, and he shall be missed.

Very sorry to see you stepping down, but its understandable that "real life" has to take priority over things like fan fiction.

Tom, Thank you very much for all of your hard work and support that you've shown everyone over the years. The work you've put in on the Challenges is amazing - as both an author and a judge I appreciate your hard work and insight. I certainly understand real life taking priority and I hope to see you around the site.

Thank you so very much for all time spend on making this site what it is or was! You will be sorely missed! May your figurative scar never hurts again!

Tom, your dedication puts me to shame, I flit into and out of this site like a butterfly, abandoning it for months on end. Trust me, I appreciate how changes in personal circumstances can make commitment to "the cause" difficult. This is, and probably always will be, my favourite fanfiction site and that's down to you and the team. Thanks for all your hard work. -N-

I would like to thank you all for your warm words. I'm still around and check in every now and then. I see the Challenge will be starting up again. I hope it runs gangbusters like free food at Honeydukes!!!
