Resigning from staff - Part 2

Recommended Posts

(Read part 1 here)

After the critical acclaim of the first part, I've decided to finally release the second part of "Resigning from staff". Prepare for a sequel full of disappointments!

I never really intended (or expected) to join staff (staff? That seemed like something from another dimension). I never really intended to do anything, get anything changed. It just kinda happened. I went with it, and I enjoyed it.

But now it feels like there's nothing left for me to do. It feels like I've hit a glass ceiling. I'm not discontent with anything or anyone. It's just... I've done some stuff. Now I'm going to do some other stuff. Circle of life.

I notified the other admins of my coming departure two weeks ago. I wasn't in any rush to leave so I figured I'd "finish the month" and most importantly, get Hofer promoted.

I'll stay around though. I like this community. You can count on me to be around for the change to standalone, whenever that is. Just not as a staff member.

I know I'll miss being in staff, and I know I'll regret this at least somewhat. I like to know and understand everything. I can't if I'm not in staff. I don't get to make decisions anymore. And I'll miss messing around on Skype. I'll be sure to stay in contact with all of you though. <3

Of all the people I've met the past year, there are three I remember the most. SumoS, Sin and Sky, I used to look up to you all. Now, it feels like we're looking at the same level. I'm proud that I got to know you and talk to you.

SumoS, I'm really glad we started talking at some point. The more I talk to you, the more I realize how much alike we are. I remember when I was a moderator, you started to include me in reports, discussions. You asked me for my opinion. You listened, and you still do. If I want an opinion on anything, discuss something, I know where I'll go. Thanks for everything. <3

Sin, I remember back in the day I was in SRF, I was talking to you in the old shoutbox and all of a sudden you exclaimed something along the lines of "god, why are all SRF members so awesome". Not sure if you were referring to me, but I like to think so. And there's a reason I remember it after all these months. What more could I hope for than to be appreciated by you? Thanks a lot for all of your help. <3

Sky, of all the people I've met, you're the only one I've never been able to catch on doing anything wrong, anything negative. It's a shame you left DayZRP entirely (will you even read this? :P), but I'm glad I still get to talk to you on Skype. Thanks a lot for all of your advice. And for my first and only warning points. <3

Lastly I want to wish Hofer good luck. A positive side-effect of my departure is that he was able to become an admin. He has much more ambition than me and will do a better job. He cleared as much whitelist applications the day he joined as I had done until then. I'm happy I still got to work with him, even if it was only for a couple of days.

Before anyone asks; no, this time I'm not coming back. Last time I left, it was a preventive measure. I... wanted to want to quit staff. This time it's different. I doubt Rolle would let me back in twice anyway. :D

Happy new year!

It's kind of odd seeing you with a dark-golden name again, Kinda hoped the previous time would be the last one, Thank you for all the great work you did, Gijs.

The best of luck in all future thing you go and do.

I enjoyed working with you and really respect you for your opinion and good way of presenting them either serious or not.

Keep doing that, don't ever stop it, in-game, out of game, or when you mess around it doesn't matter.

stay Gijs

It's a shame to see you leave staff, again. You were a really good member of staff which I think the entire community will miss.

No Gijs no! D: At least I got to feedback you before this happened. q.q

Still...Considering the amount of valuable contributions you've made to the server with your epicness, you ought to get a blue name or something. xD

I'm gonna miss ya man. I'm the only old SRF member in Staff now. D:

Also turned my opinion thread into 8 pages of "Ask an admin if they know you" and got me yelled at by khardia for messaging him... o7 <--totally not kissing up or anything :troll: <3

Omg! Please.

You are one of those people I will always like, espacially when we dont have the same opinion. I always wanted your opinion because you look into everything as a "big picture". I will miss that so much. I learned so much from you and not only as a Staff member.

You once told me that I´m hotheaded, which is true. You said it can be positive and negative. Everytime I´m angry now I remember that and try to re-think before I post/say something which is good for me ingame/Forum but also in Rl.

Thank you for everything.

You are a great and awesome Person and I´m proud that I was able to learn from you and to work with you in Staff.

I hope we stay in contact and I will miss you!

I wish you a happy new year and send you hugs and kisses!

Love <3

Terra

Gijs,

When you rejoined staff I was already a GM, and I was intimidated by your presence. You turned my negative attitude towards you around and became one of my best friends on DayZRP and in the staff team.

I remember back in July when I joined I always PMed you and bothered you about different tasks and tried to do your job, I guess I annoyed you a bit :D

Now we're at the end of our journey as staff together, and I will miss you in staff. I am happy to say that I have worked with you, but I wish it would last longer. I remember someone called us the GM dream-team, and we were.

Good luck on whatever you're going to do Gijs, and we'll see one another on Skype :)

I'll take that as a compliment. :P

No, not at all! I honestly can't remember much. Not that you're forgettable. To the contrary. It's just that the blue-named Hofer I remember is so different from the Hofer I know now that my brain somehow just erased the earlier memories. Basically I can't remember not knowing you.

I'll miss working with you too! We'll keep talking, undoubtedly. :)
