The End of an Era

    CDriscoll Lemme advise you Legendary

    Dear community,

    While it’s been an extremely great ride, I’m going to be relinquishing my position here as a lead administrator and become an advisor. There are a multitude of reasons for this, though to put it simply, I’m no longer able to put forward the activity on GMod necessary and there are decisions being made that I can’t fully support. I’ve simply lost interest in the game, though I suppose that’s what happens after almost 2 years of staffing in one period. I promise that this is in no way a result of any recent reports or appeals as it may look, though there are simply rulings and decisions being made unrelated to those appeals/reports behind the scenes that I can’t support, as I’ve said.

    With all of this stated, though, I want to say that I’m proud to have been able to grow and support the community as long as I have, and I want to thank @Highwon for giving me the opportunity to do so. This community has been a haven for people to come and enjoy themselves, and has been home to many people suffering from depression and outside issues, myself included. Without this place, many of the friendships and relationships I’ve built would have never happened, and there’s no way for me to express how appreciative of that I am. I’ve met so many great people here, and I’m glad I’ve had the opportunity as a lead admin to help other people have that exact same experience.

    This isn’t a goodbye, only a change in roles. I’ll be an advisor here and remain active within the community, helping out where I can. As always, I’m only a message away if anyone wants a helping hand, or just someone to talk to. 2016 was finished off strong, and I hope that 2017 will be just as bright for everyone else.

    I'll still be an advisor, and I'll still be pushing for change where change is needed. Don't worry.

  4. What the fuck nooo.
    Cd, you were my admin, albeit for a short time. It was amazing, I got my chance as mod. It sucks that you're leaving the position you are in right now, I am proud to know that my admin became lead, and is one of the most influential people in this community.

    I guess it is time for you to go to bed at 9:00 and put the rice away.

    Welp, sad to see you go man.
    I remember a year ago you took me in on your team when I needed it most, whether it be late nights watching some strange movies (eggs.) or talking about random stuff, you've always been a chill guy. I can only thank you for everything you've done for me and this community. Stay well & around, my dude.

    That's all. (;))

    While we may not have always seen eye to eye, I've always respected the way you did things around here CD. Whoever ends up taking your spot will have some very large shoes to fill.

    Take care, and don't be a stranger. :)

    Awe man you're going already? It seems like just yesterday you became our lead. You've always been the nicest person and always fun to hang around with. You better stick around and still play prophunt with us sometimes :p. You've done great things, and you'll continue to do even greater things as an Advisor here.
    Take care.

    Always sucks to see a lead resign. I'm glad you're planning on using the adviser role, as it's pretty priceless. Kinda like that permanent community hall voting rights thing, in a way.

    Good luck on whatever you do next, man.
