Hey, hello, greetings, and hiya to all those dearly beloved and anonymous folk who have intermittently stumbled into this dusty little corner of the Internets. Now goodbye.
Just kidding! I'm not actually leaving. I have, however, stepped down from my position as GameSpot Master Mod. (The title still looks very impressive, with all those caps. ) Alas, my job is just taking too much time. Plus I'm trying to date an awesome girl who happens to live two hours away.
Anyway, rather than reiterating what's already been said, I will simply re-post (in relevant part) my letter of resignation. Bottom line: I'm still here in spirit, I'm grateful for the time I spent as a mod, and I hope to remain a GameSpot denizen for a long time to come.
I am writing to bid you all Adieu. It's been a long time coming. I've resisting resigning until now because you guys probably wouldn't believe how much fun and camraderie I've enjoyed on the mod team over the years. [JodyR] and Bethany--and Synthia too in recent times--have been great leaders.
[ . . .] I just can't find the time like I used to. The workplace becomes a lifestyle. Given how I've treasured my time on the team, I feel even more keenly that I shouldn't occupy a position which someone else could use and enjoy more productively.
Please accept my reluctant resignation, and far more importantly, please accept my thanks for the years I've enjoyed as a GameSpot moderator. You guys are awesome; you have an awesome team; I hope you don't forget that.
I'm sure I'll still see you all around.
