And after that I'm going to reduce drastically my participation in the Forum, my schedule is going to be extremely busy during the next two months. I'm going to participate only hosting Rank the Tracks and voting in the 1984 poll (because I had all the listening already done). I'm going to miss a lot the Women and 2000s polls, even if probably I will submit delayed lists for the women's poll (maybe in February or March).

Best of luck with everything, Honorio - you'll be missed! (I'm glad you'll still be participating in a reduced role, but the more you participate, the better the forum always is.) :greetings-waveyellow:
