Stepping down as forum admin

Welcome to the General Discussion area where just about anything goes! This area is designed to discuss all matters and does not necessarily have to be Transformers related. Please keep topics relevant.

Stepping down as forum admin

Postby Cyber Bishop » Tue Apr 15, 2014 11:05 am

Motto: "Ker-Klick... Choom!"
Weapon: Fusion Cannon
After almost 7 years I have decided that it is time for me to step down as forum admin. I really do not want to it just seems that the current demands of this website have changed and do not mesh well with my job (cannot sit in front of a computer all day), my family requires more of my time as my youngest is going to be 10 and demands a lot of daddy time, my positions within the 501st legion command staff and the inability to monitor the forums like I should. I will still post when I can. Thanks for the years of support everyone.
And a special thanks to Ryan for everything through the years.

Sorry to see you go, man. You hammered spambots good, and were a kind voice on the boards. :(

Don't stay away too long, drop in every now and then, and buy lots of toys anyway. :D

Thank you for all you've done for the site over the years.

It's been a pleasure working with you and this place could not have gotten to where it is without your work and efforts.

Since I'm in town, you'll have to let me take you out for a beer soon. :D

Thanks for all your hard work over the years. I'm sure I'm aware of only an inkling of what you've done but you've done a great job here and you're a damn decent person to boot. I hope to catch you at a Botcon/TFCon sometime and share a drink.

It is not so much my kids but the demands of the site, other things are requiring my attention like my new positions in the 501st legion, they will demand a lot of time.
Crazyfists I think we classify as oldie moldies... :grin:

You're the best admin I've ever meet at a forum as large as this, and while I am sad to see you stepping down, I do think you'll enjoy not being staff anymore.
The first few months will be tough, having gotten used to all the extra options and action you get in the post editing screen form thingy, but you'l get used to it and won't even miss it after a while. :D

And yes, IRW life is much more important than this site, and hell, a super awesome new position at the 501 should actually make you feel ashamed for having been here :P

But yes, I loved working with you back during staff days, sending you PMs that were basically just "Murder the crap out of the following billion spam bot and spam user accounts".
It's going to be weird getting onto the site and not having you as our admin, heck it was weird a while back when that was the case. But here's to you CB

Sorry, sorry, oh by all that is good, so sorry for the lateness of this response. I've been meaning to write you thanks, but like everything else, I've been busy.

It'll sorta suck having you not on staff. You were a pretty cool Stormtrooper.

Now for a really bad pun: I guess that your time being on staff sure has taken its Toll.

-_- Shame on you. That was terrible. (LOL)

And thanks Bishop, for all the work you've done. This place wouldn't be what it is right now without all the work and effort you put in.

A belated thank you to Cyber Bishop,

One note: a forum is as good as it mods. In internet world of trolls and spambots, you guys are awesome. I seen many a forum destroyed by this stuff, even sites that should not be (like Coursera discussion forums and newspaper forums). Thanks to our fine mods and our fine posters too.
