I may be stepping down. *update 02/03/03
    #1269654 - 02/01/03 11:31 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

I may step down from all mods positions, currently I mod three other forums beside my favorite, SPS.

Our Administrator, Thor has just stepped down. Not only was a valued colleague but he was a good friend. It also seems that another Administrator, Moe Howard may be called to go to Iraq. He received a notice from the Army to go in for a physical and perhaps might be taken back into the Army.

With those turn of events, coupled with the fact that on January 12th another Administrator died from an overdose of drugs while chatting in our chat room with a webcam on him as he died, I am unsure how to proceed. I just found out about all this today and I am really upset. Crying actually. There I said it.

This is very hard for me. I care for so many of you and have become very close to some of you. I need to take a little time to think about this.

That's all for now.

That is the most singularly bad news i have received in ages Mr. Shrooms.......hopefully after you have had time to process all the overwhelming information/events of the last few weeks here you will find the resolve(?) to continue here in S & P...........that is my hope anyway, all the best man

Try stepping sideways friend,take some time to reflect and do what is right for you! Please know what ever you decide I will relish the brief exchanges we have had.All the very best to you MM and the rest.
:frown:WR
PS if Moe were to say that someone had slipped him an hallucinogen and he just did not feel right in the head since he could be deffered.I don't know Thor except as an unseen admin but the quality of the site speaks for him. I hope he reconsiders.
Now as for Brandon/ripper, what a terrible sad sick thing,but I see you as playing much more part in preventing such stupid excess(forgive me Brandon....I am sure from where you are you agree),than contributing  to it.I pray you find some peace regarding the whole thing. What ever you decide,you have been a delight to have conversed with and I hope if not as a Mod then as a member it may continue
Yours,WR

damn, man... that doesnt sound good at all... i received your email, and i havent been around lately, either... but i guess i should have... it looks like there has been a lot of stuff going on in everyone's life... not only mine but also shroomism's, thor's, your's and the shroomery's... the reasons i haven't been here are quite a few... but mainly the fact of breaking up with my 2 year girl and then rushing right into the next relationship which didnt quite work all that well... i barely had time for myself to deal with all this and obviously not for the shroomery... just on friday i took some time from the relationship i was in, to find a way back to myself and what i want... it broke her heart, but it was quite obviously not working... i wish i could have figured something else out, but this is the only way i can realize whether i want to be in that relationship or not... well, answering the email "publicly": now that i have time for myself i will also have time for the shroomery... at least an hour a day... during this whole time i was thinking of stepping down, but somehow i didnt manage to do it... anyways, please think about everything again (i guess you already are)... if i were you, i wouldnt step down... i know it is not easy considering what is happening here, but that is exactly the reason you should stay... the shroomery needs us now more than ever... you said it yourself in the email... i hope you work things out, and we can still have the pleasure of working together...

wisdom to you, my friend... you will sort things out...

this is sad news. i have you come to think of you as a great person mr mushrooms, and i honestly hope that you will not take permanent absence with leaving your mod position. i understand how things have been getting crazy lately, but isnt that how life always goes? it gets good, then crazy, but eventually the wave has to break and start over right?

Hey,

Sorry to hear things have been difficult for you, lately. Even though I have'nt agreed with everything you've said as Eno and in my new carnation since some error, I think you do an excellent job as an administrator and I think you're a lovely and fair person.

A break is probably a good idea. I'm sure you'd get the job back anytime you want it. All the best.

Ripper was kind of an admin. He'd step in to help out with some technical doodads now and then.

The choice is yours to make. Do what feels right to you MM, not what others want of you.
