Thanks for the introduction Steve. I'm honored for you to entrust us with the Skoolie community.
A little about me. I started my first forum when I was restoring a 1961 Airstream Bambi in 2002. It grew and I found forums fascinating. A few years after starting www.AIRForums.com
I decided to dedicate myself to fostering great forums. I guess I am just a wanderer because I packed up all my stuff and headed off to live on the cheap abroad and work on forums. I ended up spending nearly 5 years on 6 continents living out of suitcases and working with forum communities 24x7 (excluding time to see cool things and enjoy some cold brews).
Over the years I was blessed to meet some amazing people through the forums. Some stepped up to help out and now I have an awesome team of friends who helps make sure the sites get the attention they deserve. Janet helps with community management working with the mods/admins, Jeff helps with technical stuff, Andy Staple is a graphics guy, Jake makes sure our servers are secure and our backups are working.
As for plans for Skoolie, we'll probably move over to vBulletin so we can have a bunch of features that are currently not available with phpBB. We'll setup smartphone access (is Skoolie already available via Tapatalk?) and a showcase system so everyone can show off their school bus conversions. We are all ears so if you have some ideas on features that would make Skoolie better, please let us know.
If you have any other questions, please let me know!
