Earlier this year I started discussing privately with the Moderators the need for me to step away.
The last 2+ years have been a blast, and although I love being here, it has become increasingly apparent that my time and effort are best spent elsewhere. Specifically, there are larger gains to be had if I focus 100% on development, marketing, and funding.
For the community, there’s nothing here that I do that the Moderators aren’t fully capable of handling. That’s what they’re here for, after all!
I’m therefore making my exit, and although I’ll still be working behind the scenes, I don’t plan to be around either in the chat or here in the forums. As much as I want to be, it’s a slippery slope for me personally as I have a hard time not being involved in everything when I am here, perhaps to a fault.
As I told the mods, I can’t “turn it down”, only “off”.
Rest assured, the Moderators and I have been working on processes to see that your needs as a player are taken care of. Effective immediately, they are managing everything here in my place, including anything related to running and moderating the game itself. As always, you can contact them directly via @moderators for anything you need.
Lastly, thank you for all the help, feedback, and discussion. I hope you’re having a wonderful holiday, and are gearing up for an exciting New Year’s Eve and a great 2019. Be safe out there!
