Good evening everyone,
It's finally come to the time where I felt the need to put in my resignation. I've been apart of the staff team for five years, the longest time I've ever been apart of staff team before (including RSPS for those who know about that). And been apart of the website for at least seven years (probably a little more when this community used to be known as ForumCore, but wasn't active as I was on WebFlake because I was young and didn't really know what to do). This site has taught me so much, really! Including things like maturity (mostly because I have looked up to Davlin, and wanted to copy his sense of professionalism in his topics/posts and tackling issues head-on the way he always has, I've used that in many other forums I've been apart of), confidence in my moderation skills (considering this is the FIRST forum I had ever moderated outside of my comfort zone, and when I had first started, I had a lot to learn and asked a lot of questions to the point where I thought I was annoying the administration.. haha), and so much more.
It has been such a honor moderating under both Davlin and Phun, and sometimes teaching the other moderators about their roles. I enjoy helping, teaching, and making people understand something so much especially when the end result is watching them prosper in their role. I've seen so many staff come and go as well, but it has all been worth it in the end. There's definitely been some up's and down's but when isn't there? This site has been apart of my childhood and some of my adulthood. I was only about 13-14 when I had joined the community (including the time period before WebFlake). I couldn't imagine putting so much effort into something like this thinking back on it but it's something I don't regret, and wouldn't ever change.
WebFlake is definitely going to be a site that I will continue to visit from time-to-time (and hopefully more frequently after I'm not so busy with real life things) because of how much it means to me and the people that are around. This site is definitely a place where people always come back to. It's impossible not to!
It has also been such a honor to help the people I have, make the connections I have, and laugh with the people I have. This ENTIRE forum has literally been something that has raised me, or at least played a part in doing so because of how much it's taught me.
That's all I got... this was an emotional one, and one I didn't want to make but I know this team deserves someone that is able to be on a lot more so both the team and site can achieve much more. I don't want to be the boundary that stops the site from doing so.
Thank you all so much!
