Matthew Bidinger, our Forum Administrator and Editor-in-Chief, will take up a position with iNet Interactive as Community Manager starting today. This is an exciting development: Matt is a fantastic editor and has been working hard for over a year now to make the new and refreshed work. He’s a great guy and well-suited to this new post.

As some of you may know, is a site run for the most part by volunteers. Forum members provide, write, edit and publish all of our content. There is, of course, a company behind the site, who provide the technical and financial means for us to run our community: iNet Interactive. Although they take no part in content generation, they are ultimately responsible for making sure we have the right tools to make the site work.

As Community Manager, Matt will be working with all of iNet’s sites to help them grow and publish more interesting content. Matt will also be making the most of the likes of Facebook and Twitter, as he has done for us here at On behalf of the Lead Editors and Forum Moderators I’d like to wish Matt all the best in his new role. Congratulations!

Matt, after some administrating

About David 21 Articles
I am an Editor and OCForums Super Moderator. I help prepare articles for publication, as well as writing the odd article, news piece or review myself. I'm very keen on maintaining a high quality of writing in the articles on, and emulating the objectivity and clear writing style of scientific journals. If you're writing for and need some help with preparing your piece, or presenting data, please feel free to email me. I'm a chemist by trade, having completed a degree at the University of Edinburgh, Scotland in 2008. I'm currently studying towards a PhD at the University of Strathclyde (Glasgow, Scotland) in Physical Organic Chemistry on the topic of substrate structure/activity relationships in ruthenium-alkylidene catalysed olefin ring-closing metathesis. In my spare time I like to relax with a book or browse the forums.

    so does that mean no more admin here or double duty!
    Grats Matt!

    No admin! Parrrrrrrty!
    Kidding, he'll still be around, I'm sure :)
    I'm glad the job at iNet worked out for you. They made a great decision in hiring you; you do a great job for this site, and other sites can only benefit from your hard work and dedication.
    I'm hoping he'll be able to be just as active as always, but keeping up with multiple sites could limit his activity on a single site. There's not another active Admin on OCForums...I wonder if we'll see a new red soon to help take on admin duties here...hmm...
    Thanks everyone, appreciate the comments. Also appreciate those who helped me with my resume. :thup:
    To address some concerns... You won't see less of me around here, and when you aren't looking I'll continue doing just as much as always behind the scenes. It is my goal to ensure we are moving in a positive direction that furthers the vision of I have experienced many positive interactions in this community that have inspired me. Since before I got blue stars and a "senior member" title in 2004, it has been my driving force to do anything I can to give back. This lead to accepting offers as a senior, then a mod, then an admin... Each time I accepted from the viewpoint that I was taking on additional responsibility. Responsibility to carry on the traditions, and ensure ten years from now this community would still be true to its core values and passing on what it gave to me ten years ago.
    My relationship with this community has survived the loss of a pet (In Memory Of Gus), 3 incomplete college endeavors, 3 long term relationships, 2 jobs, 1 new career, 1 lost career, 1 old vehicle, 1 heavy drinking hobby, and countless lovers. ;) A new job won't take me away and I'm not sure anything ever could. :salute:
    David, I bet you had a hard time picking between that picture and this one:
    That's what happens after I.M.O.G. works through the night 3 days straight over a team of 6 techs in a cramped Dallas hotel room with the beds stripped out to make room for tables, completing updates on a hoard of corporate thinkpads (looking back, I really got boned while breaking my back in that old job):
    cant believe that I havent seen this till today.
    Congrats Matt, they know what you are capable of and seems rightly for them to step up and make the time you put in valuable to yourself as much as it is to us.
