Team 4chan is also at its largest, and while I've still been calling the shots, I've delegated many of my responsibilities to a handful of trusted volunteers, most of whom have served the site for years.That foundation will now be put to the ultimate test, as today I'm retiring as 4chan's administrator. A few senior volunteers—including 4chan's lead developer, managing moderator, and server administrator—have stepped up to ensure a smooth transition over the coming weeks.Another thing that hasn't changed much is the number of boards we host.
So here we are, trying to cram significantly more people into a marginally expanded site, with what is essentially the same software and roughly the same number of volunteers.
There is nobody more qualified than Hiroyuki to lead 4chan, and I can't think of a person better suited for the task.
4chan sits on the eve of two great milestones—its 2 post and 12th birthday.
I'm humbled to have had the privilege of both founding and presiding over what is easily one of the greatest communities to ever grace the Web.
It was truly an honor to serve as 4chan's founding administrator, and I look forward to seeing what the next decade holds for the site.
It has been a great privilege to serve as 4chan's founder and steward for almost twelve years, and I can't wait to see what lays in store under Hiroyuki's experienced leadership.
