For me this is the second most bad news I have had both in year's 2011 AND 2012, selfish yes so be it. Fabrice I without question wish you the very best it is a huge loss for America to loss the only "Public" news service. I know I have not been with you much of late but My Partner has been critically ill bordering on terminal. Deepest regards & Love; S. W. Velsor IV

i wish you well fabrice in your newest role. however i must add that to me, this seems like the loss of a whole community. those of us who have been members for some time and have reviewed and posted and read both stories and others' reviews recognize well many of our fellow members' names and, speaking for myself at least, often look to their reviews of articles to discover how valuable it may be for us to read.. as i read the future here, it seems not likely that this community of familiar names (and faces on the page) will survive for long as i believe some organization/administration is necessary in preserving a communal sensibility. i believe this level of interaction is unique in news sites and i will miss it very much, as ii will miss also the opportunity to read such an eclectic range of articles and assessments from so many varied sources. i have much appreciation for so many of you other members who have brought such great stories which you have assessed as fairly and honestly as we are able.

Looking at the News Trust Community, one can only see a success story. I am hoping that something new and inspiriting will keep us going. Thank you for the support you have offered at News Trust for almost 6 years. God bless you.

Dear Samuel, Patricia and Peter,

Thank you so much for you kind words, which mean a lot to me.

First off, I want to let you know that I am looking for a way to create a special group page for regulars like you, who participate frequently on NewsTrust, so that you may continue to share news with each other, even after we close down the consumer site. I cannot guarantee that this will be possible, but I will do the best that I can to recommend this solution to the organization that will be managing the educations service. Stay tuned for more on this in coming weeks.

I am so glad that you got as much out of this experiment as we did, and I am really grateful for all that you did to make it so interesting. I really enjoyed working with you all and hope we'll get a chance to collaborate again in the future.

Letting go of NewsTrust was a tough decision, but I think it was the right thing to do. I can have more impact at Wikimedia, building on the lessons we learned together. And we have found a good home for NewsTrust's educational service, so that work can continue under new management. Stay tuned for next month's announcement.

It's been a wonderful adventure and I am so glad it gave us a chance to work together. We all learned a lot throughout this experiment and I am really proud of all that we have accomplished with this experiment. To be continued.

Regards as ever,

Times comes when we all have to move on. Hope someone will take News Trust to another level, all the best in your new post.

(MOSCOW) — Vladimir Putin scored a decisive victory in Russia's presidential election Sunday to return to the Kremlin and extend his hold on power for six more years. His eyes brimming with tears, he defiantly proclaimed to a sea of supporters that they had triumphed over opponents intent on "destroying Russia's statehood and usurping power."
