Another blow for AcornuserBy . Published: 11th Apr 2002, 14:04:18 | Permalink | Printable
One editor exit stage leftIn a statement emailed to drobe.co.uk this week, Acornuser magazine's editor Mike Stubbs has sadly stepped down from his position as editor.
"It is with great regret that I announce my resignation from Acorn User. With immediate effect, I will no longer be editing the magazine", writes Mike.
"I shall not go into the reasons, suffice to say it has nothing to do with the state of the market or anything like that. My other RISC OS projects will continue, as will my dedication to the platform.
"I offer my apologies to the readers and advertisers of Acorn User. It is not a decision I made lightly and I hope you will not vilify me for it.
"I hope that the next Editor will build on the strengths of the new-look Acorn User and continue the transformation of the magazine into a must-read publication."
Mike will no longer be checking the firstname.lastname@example.org mailbox, instead mail should be directed to his personal email@example.com account.
Drobe suspects Acornuser magazine will have a hard time beating back the crowds of people just dying to become the next AU editor.
Update : Acorn User have now announced that Rob Donaldson will be the new editor. Good luck Rob!
