6 Years of activity, level 68, 17,627 forum posts, and 168 blogs posts. None of these matter anymore because I have decided to leave Gamespot. Reason? I'd say about 95% of my reason lies with Gamespot decided to get rid of unions. Unions were pretty much the whole reason I've stuck with this site for so long. A few months ago I became the leader of the union I have been active for in my 6 years here. We were still fairly active, and have a long history, so it was rather crushing to hear that all the work the previous leaders put into the union was going to be swept away.
In spite of this though, I and some members decided to move to an off site forum. Its different for sure, but we have more freedom there than we were ever allowed to have in the unions.
If you wish to keep in contact with me, you will find me here.
I would also like to take this moment to thank a few freinds that i've met here that have influenced me alot over the years.
Diego (AKA Nintendo_warrio)
Diego, I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for how much you've been there for me. You've taught me to never let what others think rule my own thoughts and actions, and instead find my own answers. You've helped me see things and discover things about myself that I may not have ever found. You've been a true friend and I'll always be grateful that I've had the chance to know you.
I doubt you'll see this bak since you've left Gamespot yourself last year, but thanks for being such a great guy. In all the years I've known you, I've never once seen you get angry at someone or just flat out be mean to anyone. You have inspired me to try and be a better person. You also put your all into running the union I have been calling home here for 6 years. If you see this, know that I appreciate all you have done and sacrificed for us.
To be honest Gohan, when I first met you I think I was a bit scared of you :P. Overtime though we have grown to become pretty good friends. Anytime I had a problem, I knew I could count on your advice. Your always fun to talk games with and usually always have a good sense of humor about things. Your a great guy and I'm glad I've been able to share my union experiance with you :).
Things may have ended badly between us, and I doubt you will ever read this, but I just want you to know that your friendship meant the world to me and I will cherish the good times we had together always. You've helped me through alot of problems in my life and I will never forget that.
Sort of a similar situation to Gohan here with you. I started out being a bit intimidated by you, but then we got to bonding over Fire Emblem and became quick friends. I always enjoy talking to you about numerous things, and on some ocassions you've even helped me through some problems. Your always very honest and will speak your mind, which is something I admire about you. Thanks for being a great freinds :).
SoaringEagle88, Tomic2505, despa1r_fact0r, Shantrix, papermariofan57, miles-prower, Zeromus1337, SuperSmashBro1, zmanrwks, and Bzilla56 I'd like to give an honerable mention to you. I'm sorry I don't have anything meaningful to say about you all, but know that you all had a great impact on my time here and I'm glad I had the chance to be freinds with you all.
And so now I will take my leave of this site. I will probably get on every once in awhile just to check my PMs and read a few blogs. Other than that most of my internet time will be focused here http://w11.zetaboards.com/TGNGU/index/.
Hope to see some of you there and I wish you all the best. :)
