Stepping down

Postby Corran » Tue Jan 12, 2010 12:35 pm

Actually, I have been in the shadows not really doing anything for months now so you won't notice any changes in how the site operates.

Sometime in 2008, I decided that I would focus my efforts on site programming and leave moderation and other aspects of managing the site to the other admins and moderators. Now that I am going to college full time, I don't really have time for that any more either.

I will still be around to provide continuity regarding the code I wrote, provide my opinion on site issues to the mods when/if desired, and to possibly fix small site bugs that I notice... but that is pretty much the extent of it.

I originally wasn't going to make an announcement, but I wanted to make it clear from this point forward that my views do not necessarily reflect the views of the administration. If you agree or disagree with something I say, then you are agreeing or disagreeing with me, not the wonderful people that contribute their free time to the operation of this site.

Thanks for all your efforts, big or small, it's a thankless job and I think you contributed quite a bit. :up:

Thanks Eric, you really kept the site going in less-than-ideal situations when noone else was around to do it, and in some cases invested time and effort well beyond what you could afford. Your cool-headed and community-oriented approach to moderation really influenced the way I view .org administration.

Chances are, most people won't know the actual amount of work you've put into the site cause you've always been pretty discrete about it. Even then, though, I don't think anyone would disagree that you've been an awesome admin. We shall miss you, and hopefully you won't totally disappear from the community.

Thanks again!

I'll still be around lurking the forums and occasionally posting, I don't plan to disappear altogether.

Speaking of which... I hadn't checked in a while. Since streaming was implemented last year, the org has crunched through over seventy thousand videos, converting them to streaming format, and should be done next month. Hooray!

Since the initial priority given to the videos was ranked by star scale, though, it means that the last batch to be converted... aren't very good. :uhoh: (according to rankings given)
But still, the CPUs should be able to rest next month. :)

(Of course, new uploads are pushed to the front of the queue, and there will still be new videos to convert in the future, but it won't be going 24/7 any more)

Aww. I remember how you'd always say you don't have time to work on the Org anymore, and then a day later you'd be tweaking some other bit of code. Thanks for sticking around for as long as you did. :P

Thanks for everything Corran. You were the admin that I probably interacted with the most on these forums and you always came through. Thanks for all your hard work, especially with the work you've done with streaming.
