As you, you've managed tens of forums, etc., but AT isn't just another forum.

But we're not talking about the CEO of Walmart; AT isn't some faceless corporation but a single person's dream. Although it may be sad that it's closing, I don't know if I could give up "my baby" to someone else. It's more than a business, it's her vision and passion, and I can see the logic of not wanting to give it up to someone else who would maybe corrupt and change that vision.

I've been here 13 years and I can understand her reasons, and I support them. Also, sorry if this comes off as trying to be superior, but your join date is less than two years ago. I have to wonder how much contact you've had with Solandia, how well you know the spirit and norms of place. I would also wonder why she would elect to do as you suggest because of those reasons, when it appears that preserving what was is part of her rationale for not transferring it to someone else, even to others who have been here far longer. Not talking about me, of course, I wouldn't want that headache.
Ditto to that, I agree completely
