    Hello Everybody!

    As many of you know, and for those who don't know, Phil Crane started TerraForums (formerly ********** Discussion Forums) early in 2001 in order to have a more open forum than what the GardenWeb offered. ********** grew rapidly and became the largest CP discussion forums around. In later years, the forums were renamed TerraForums but remained the same great community of carnivorous plant hobbyists. Phil, with deep dedication to the CP community, put lots of time and money into making these forums a wonderful place to learn CPs and make friends. Over the past year, Phil has become involved in several new business ventures reducing the time he had to spend at TerraForums. So rather than see the forums weaken, it was put up for sale.

    It is with great pleasure that I announce the new forum owner! It is our very own, highly esteemed Andrew Beauchamp (otherwise known as Adnedarn)! Andrew, a member of TF from its earliest days, has been at the helm of TerraForums for a while now, so he thought it would be fitting to make the formal announcement here on New Year's Eve to start 2007 out right! Andrew will also, in the near future, be selling carnivorous plants as well! This will include traditional plants like flytraps as well as other varieties. As his business grows, we can expect new and exciting things to come. The store name and opening date will be announced at a later day.

    I hope you all will join me in congratulating Andrew and wishing him the best with TerraForums and the new business. I hope in the future we can all support Andrew as his business will support these forums.

    We have such a close family here and hopefully 2007 will bring more new members, more community experiences and lots of new plants for us all to grow and enjoy. Thanks to everyone who has supported these forums, from the "old timers" to the newbies. TerraForums wouldn't be the great place it is without ALL of you!

    HAPPY NEW YEAR and best wishes to Andrew and all the TF crew for a spectacular 2007!

    I try. Did I squeeze out a tear? hehe

    DEFINITELY a huge thank you to Phi for creating this wonderful environment for the CP nuts to hang out and learn from one another. Phil

    And Andrew will carry the torch forward now. So if you wanna b itch at somebody...b itch to Andrew.

    All kidding aside, he's gonna be great!

    [I'm gonna take all this back if he fires me for bypassing the filter... ]

    I'm glad this forum won't die. Thank's for saving it.

    So is this forum going to be sponsored by TF still or will it be supported independantly or will the members donate like at some other forums?
