From what I can get from my fuzzy memory (with more than a little help from the Internet Archive), SwampGas joined the site in 1998 to take care of various backend coding things with the site. I don't recall him ever showing an interest in emulators, but he was the most senior member still around when Zophar left and the one most able to manage the site.

It wasn't really the greatest idea in the first place to leave someone who wasn't particularly interested in emulation in charge of an emulator news site, though it still took a good few years for the site to go into terminal decline. SwampGas took over at some point in late 2000 (unable to pinpoint exactly where, and that was before I arrived here) but the site was still pretty regularly updated right through 2004. It wasn't until 2005 the the site really started to fall apart.

I'm not really that interested myself in the backroom stuff that led to Edman owning ZD. He seems enthusiastic and involved for now though, which is what the site needs. Only time will tell if things keep going in this promising vein though.
