In fact a farewell thread before this one pointed that out where there is a lot of negativity on this site. More so then there is a positive site. Which is unfortunate, as I have seen this place grow, In fact I helped this place grow. There for I might be partly to blame for the direction the site has taken over the past few months, because as a member/admin/and caretaker. I failed to keep this site to be a place to feel safe.
To be blunt and honest about me feelings, I have become disgusted on how some people have been treating others around here. Or create such a negative vibe, just because they don't like how things are run around here. I've seen backstabbing, undermining, loophole hunting. Disregarding others openly, and even groups purposely trying to make the staff look bad again and again. Even the occasional bullying.
All this raised two very large questions for me. 1, why would you want to go through such great lengths to ruin the general mood for certain members over a roleplaying site. A place that is supposed to be a safe haven to escape real life so every now and then. And 2, why would I keep forcing myself to come back every day to a place which ruins my mood continuously.
As for point 1 I haven't and probably never will get an answer, as I guess that is just the way things are. As for 2, the answer is clear.
Nevertheless, I had a great time here. Met some amazing people, rp'd some fun stories. Others more adventurous, and some even plainly weird. To those people I want to give my thanks who have helped me over the years to create this great character Lord Frederick, as well as Harrigan Crawford. Without you I never could've come this far in roleplaying, or ever stick to it. Some of those are the old farts who are here since the beginning. Or at least as long as I am. You know who you are! Feel delighted!
I also want to thank my fellow staff, and administrators with whom I shared so many conversations. Some good, some bad. Without you guys, I think I would've lost my mind a long time ago.
And I especially want to thank Sei, for creating this place in the first place. Sure we weren't the closest, but I respect you for what you've done around here. Without this place I would have never discovered roleplaying all together, and was probably still in a dark place in my life. Real life, not this one. (i will also remember your voice... :face:)
Either way, for now I am taking my leave. Contemplate on this, I probably will hop back in. In a month or so. Hoping that my feelings and lust for the site have returned to what it has used to be.
