What is happening with the people in these forums?

First a few valuable developers (personally I miss subby), now marrow, ...
Don't know why but all the people that is leaving were involved in Armagetron Advanced :cry:

marrow: what is the status of armagetronad project? Will you continue as a project manager? Which are the reasons you are leaving?

Oh! I'm sad because a lot of strange things are happening... :(

Ya, bummer that people are leaving, Will miss them. Sometimes more important things crop up or emotions play a part, and when you get older :D other things need to be attened to rather than a game or chating :(
Hope things go well for Subby and Marrow.

There are still a lot of good people here and i'm sure more will come. Around and around we go. :)

Like subby, I was kicked off the moderation team here at the forum without notification.

However, to answer the questions:
1. Armagetronad will continue.
2. I'll continue as Armagetronad project admin.
3. I'm leaving the forum because I don't agree with the direction the forum is heading.

I can be reached at [email protected] should anybody need to contact me.

Also, since I expected people to respect my decisions as project admin for Armagetron Advanced (however unpopular those decisions were), I respect the decisions Tank makes in his forum.

It's nothing personal, I'm sure. As far as I know, Tank and I have no issues on a personal level.

He's just doing what he feels is best for the forum.

Tank i have never really had a huge workload with forums, since the coliseum is gone and i said u could delete it, and the other area i manage is usually not very active. So if you want to keep me on as moderator you can but if you see fit to remove me pending other post.http://guru3.sytes.net/viewtopic.php?t=961

I've decided that having moderators causes too many issues. I will continue to read all of the forums and moderate it myself. You may ask why, and I'll tell. I'm not happy with how this has turned out. I realise that this has been my fault in part, and I accept that. I have not communicated properly in many cases causing events to occur which I simply did not forsee. These mistakes have caused me to loose people that are very valuable to the forums and I do not wish to make that mistake again. I'm deeply sorry to Subby, Marrow, and any others I may have caused to leave due to my inexperience with forums. I hope that one day you will return.

To all those that wished to be moderators this time, I'm also very sorry. However, I simply cannot risk a set of events like this happening another a few months down the road.

So, once again, to everyone, sorry for my major fuckup.

I screwed up too. Since this post is from over three years ago, it's definitely in the past.

It appears Tank left an open invitation to return to the forum, so I'm returning. I hope others do the same.

Also, I received a private message from Seleucus. It's good to know some of the old timers are still active.
