Thanks for 4+ Great Years
« on: September 8, 2008, 12:53 AM »
Iíve been putting this off because I couldnít decide how best to say it, but the time has come to get it out there...

I have decided to resign from my staff position at JediDefender.  A number of factors have led me to this decision, but I'll spare you the gritty details.  Instead, I'll just say that I am at a point in my life where I'd like a bit more free time and a reduced stress level, so something had to give.

Don't get me wrong, I still love this place - the people, the discussions, the atmosphere.  The forums are A+/#1 and always will be.  I will still be hanging around to enjoy the discussions (and probably continuing to moderate the Minnesota Store Reports area for my fellow Minnesotans).

Thanks again to all of you - the front page news readers, forum members, my fellow Staffers - for making my 4+ years on the staff here so much fun.

Best of luck. I totally understand the feeling of needing more time.

I think Jeff has to keep us in line, being rowdy and all.  ;)

Your hard work will be missed.  Hope to still see you around the boards though.

Thanks Jeff for the invite all those years ago to join up here. In doing so, I've met a lot of great friends and contacts. I'm not sure I can forgive you for turning me on to Kubricks though.  :-*

Wow, that is news. I'm sad to hear it for myself, but if it makes your life easier, I'm glad for you. I feel lucky that I got the chance to meet you in person though. Best of luck.
