Title: To Those Whom it may Concern:
Post by: 7grant2 on March 27, 2013, 11:47 pm
I'm officially announcing my position as retired due to circumstances both on Sploder and in real life. Real life has been more prominent and demanding, seeing as to how my Senior year of high school is ending and my college pursuits are catching up with me. Not only that, I currently work and will be working two jobs soon, in which my free time will already be completely diminished.

Seeing as to how I'm 18, going to be 19, I don't match the age-group of Sploder much anymore. It has nothing to do with anyone personally, but it becomes harder and harder to relate to this site and its people, some of which I've grown with as well as newer faces.

I've spent over 4 years moderating these forums, ranging from some periodic times of inactivity and times of full-fledged commitment, but now I do have trouble coming on, continually making decisions, and being a part of the staff. It has become tiresome making decisions time after time and I am ready for my relaxation period.

Most of you may think I have been inactive for a long time, probably the past couple of months, but I was working with other staff members on improving different parts of the forum, such as directing the cleaning up and reorganization and of categories like the Ideas and recruitment (credit to all who took effort in improving them), as well as put forth the launch of the Video Crew and take part of that podcast.

I would like to apologize for my inactivity which mainly started after the announcement of the Video Crew. I do ask of you not to blame the Generals for laziness and irresponsibility; real life is always a priority over Sploder and it just happens that we all have had a call to reality for the time being. We all have different responsibilities that require attention.

There is always some chance that I may become active again but this time seems to be for good. I will occasionally come in and chime a few words here and there, likely in the Barracks, as well as throw in my opinions on some issues in Lieutenant League, but that would be the extend of my actions.

I'd like to thank you all for being active on the forum and creating the Sploder community, something which I've already experiences myself. My time is going to the next generation of users who will have new ideas to help lead the forums on a new path and I wish them all the best of luck in their efforts.

Sincerely,
7grant2, your moderator.

But then how do you explain Darut, Checkthepan, and Wxg?

What is this "Real Life" you speak of? ;o

Anyway, I wish you the best of luck venturing into the tedious realm of "real life", and I hope you find all you seek in it. ;p

Dude, I have been around for nearly 4 years, I remember all of the stuff you have done for this forum. I remember reading your plat guide and I instantly recognized you as a dedicated person. To sploder, to game making, and to thye newbs, who couldn't put a good game together (and still can't XD). I remember at one of Gamemasterboy's suggestions you added the ideas category which at the time was sorely needed. But most of all, I remember how you inspired me to become better. To help the newbs as well. And even if, after I came back in late 2012 I was a bit cynical and thought of everyone below me as a newb, I still remembered that.

Good luck at life. I will miss you. You are a legend of the forums, mainsite and moderation team. And my final words for you, which I damn really hope you will follow are these...
"You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave."

Lolz. No need to be afraid. I'm fine talking to tbremise because he's my friend. You don't need to worry about talking to a mod. Heck, you might become their best friend!

See ya, mate. :) I've (kind of) known you for a long time and I guess it's fair that you take your real life responsibilities first than Sploder. I'm nearing the age of being unacceptable. XD

Hope to see you around soon.

I'll be sad to see you go Grant. I sincerely hope you do well in your future. With the commitment you have given to Sploder, I strongly believe that you will go very far in life. I wish you nothing but luck with these jobs and college, and I sincerely hope everything was worth it in the end.
With respect,

I dont get why you choose this particular year to stop, well good luck anyway, quite depressing to see more and more folks leave or derank and its never ever actually feels resolved. NOT TRYING TO BE IN YOUR BUSINESS. ignore if necessary/

Oh I don't mind you probing a little! Haha, but nah my free time is just to come to a complete hault. I now work two jobs, Abercrombie and Chick-Fil-A, and, along with school, I'll be in complete overhaul. Plus the year is winding down and I'm just don't feel like doing anything moderator-wise on the forum xD

I'd say 5 years is enough of a resolve for me :P
