    Giraffe We take the small victories VIP Silver Emerald

    For a while now, I've been considering this decision. Whether it be for stuff that goes on in real life or for my general disinterest of Garry’s Mod. When I joined the Moderating Team and Administration, I’d help out as much as I can. I wanted to help drive the community to greater lengths, help it grow, and help those around me, and to an extent I feel like I’ve done just that. But for a while now I have felt weighed down by what essentially feels like a chore for me. The chore being maintaining the hours. Sometimes I feel like I’m looking at steam overlay watching the minutes pass by until it is time to get off and then rinse and repeat for each day that follows. Garry’s Mod was once a fun game to play where I could spend hours upon hours playing it. As of right now, I can’t be bothered to look at it.


    With that being said, you all have made my time here wonderful, in fact you’ve all made this place a second home for me. And really I don’t have much else to say but thanks for all those who have made this journey worthwhile. You guys are the best.

    You're a great friend Giraffe. Glad to have been able to have so many great talks with you (especially about speedrunning). Keep it cool and maybe you can head on over to a GDQ in the future so things can be pretty fuckin' spicy.

    It's been a long ride Giraffe. We became moderators on the same day and we've been here since. It was nice getting to know you more as time went on. All of those late night teamspeak talks were always fun too. See you on the rift.

    Never forget Street Justice.

    You're an amazing guy and were an amazing admin, it depresses me to think the staff team will lose you but I understand the growing disinterest with the game. I hope to see you maybe make a return one day but for now I just hope to still see you around. Take care and have a good one!

    Tbh I never really spoke to you for very long, but I always thought you were a cool dude and I always liked you. Always sucks when someone like you leaves. :(

    Graze Many Thanks for All the Memories. I'll be back. Legendary

    Some people say that becoming a staff member changes people and their behavior, and those people can be right sometimes, but there are examples of where people don’t let authority positions change them, I personally think that you are a perfect example of this.

    I never thought that I would manage to find someone over the internet that means as much to me in my day to day life as much as you do. I look forward to speaking with you nightly due to your amazing personality, forward thinking, and selfless motivations. You have the amazing ability to make people want to be around you, something that I think alone will carry you far. Your ability to spread smiles is unrivaled by anyone that I’ve ever met in my life. Your time here as a staff member is one that will go down in history, and I’m glad that I was somebody that got to witness it.

    I can only attempt to express my feelings with words when words only mean so little. Thank you for incredible amount of work that you put into your team and your moderators. Thank you for the dedication and time that you have spent here doing all that you have done for the servers and the people who play them. Most of all, thank you for being such an amazing friend.

    I knew this was coming but it was a matter of when. That day we were exploring the End and you told me was enough for me to think about it.

    Regardless, you've been a great help and I will never forget all the great times we've had when you'd just come into our channel and we'd have a nice chat or you'd say some entertaining comment. You were one of the people I always came to when I needed something and I'll always be thankful for what you've done for not just me but the community as a whole.

    Also you were one of my favorite admins and it's definitely sad to see you go. Steve doesn't know lel

    Hope you stick around and good luck in wherever you plan to go in the future.

    P.S. Hingle has something nice to tell you next year :)

    You're a great guy Giraffe I enjoyed the times you joined our channel late night and just talked. We had many times where we just had fun and put staffing and our ranks aside for the time being. This is a gamemode where it can get boring real quick and it's unfortunate that you felt this. However you still have this community and I know you'll definitely stick around every now and then.

    However for the time being good luck and take care my man, wish you all the best with everything.

    CDriscoll Lemme advise you Legendary

    In all the time I've been here, admin and lead, this has been the most difficult resignation for me to take. You were my moderator, my administrator, and now one of my closest and best friends. The time you spent here meant so much to everyone around you, and you've done nothing but brighten the days of everyone who comes across you. Your kindness is infectious, and you were nothing less than a priceless addition to the staff team. Thanks for everything you've done for us.

    You'll be missed, but we know you aren't leaving.

    You will be missed dearly Giraffe. You were one of the most helpful admins this server has had and I thank you for the time you spend helping us out. Thanks for everything. Don't be a stranger, please.

    Damnit Giraffe, this is heartbreaking for me. :cry::cry:

    While I may never have been on your team, you treated me like I was and I greatly appreciate that. Not only were you one of the most approachable admins, you helped me on many occasions which I could probably never payback. You will always have a place in this community, you're always welcome to come back.

    You're a great guy Giraffe, never change.
