Thanks to CK
This past weekend I was saddened to accept the resignation of CK MacLeod as both an Ordinary Times Senior Editor and our resident WordPress Guru.
Other than Erik Kain, I’d be hard pressed to think of anyone who has had a bigger impact on this site’s layout and technical underbelly. As many have noted, CK’s contributions to OT have been nothing short of sublime. His many additions have made browsing the site easier for casual readers and stalwart commenters alike. His skill has also helped most of us on the writing end; even the tiny things he implemented or taught us have been invaluable. 1 I don’t think we really knew just how much we needed a CK until we had one of our very own.
Unfortunately, CK’s long-term plans are branching off in a different direction from ours. He will continue on as a writing contributor.
Because of this news, I have two requests of the commentariate:
First, if you have benefited from the changes CK has made to the site, I would invite you to feel free to express such in the threads below.
Second, I am going to ask for your patience. CK’s needs require he leave the tech end of our site immediately. Will Truman will be picking up the slack, but it’s possible that there will be some glitches in the weeks ahead while we bring ourselves up to speed with a CK-less CK-level site.
