On August 15th, 2007, I chose not to renew my contract with Internet Brands for work on Wikitravel and Wikitravel Extra. The last four years have been an amazing experience as I watched the site grow from an idea born of a frustrating moment on a beach in Thailand to a Webby Award-winning site. As I move to focus on my family and other projects, the Wikitravel community will always have my admiration and heartfelt support. Thank you for your support, effort, and friendliness!

I want to follow up with some additional comments about my own changing role. IB has decided to bring more of the development and maintenance of Wikitravel in-house. For this reason, I'll no longer be the principal system administrator and developer for Wikitravel. I will, however, remain an active member of the community and I will continue to work on Wikitravel content and policies.
Wikitravel has always been a family project for us, and I will sincerely miss Maj's work on this project and her voice in our discussions. Without her dedication to travel and her organizational skills, Wikitravel would have been quite literally inconceivable. I want to thank her for everything she's done to build this project and to further the idea of Open Content travel guides. --Evan 11:31, 22 August 2007 (EDT)
