I wanted to let everyone know that I'm going to be stepping down as a moderator in January.

I've been a moderator here since October 15, 2004, shortly after the Gone Gold explosion and subsequent migration.  It's been a great experience to see this site (and particularly the forums) grow like it has and I'd happily continue but there's a couple of things that are getting in my way:

1) As of December 1 my work now blocks all gaming-related sites.  I used to check in here all through the day instead of helping the mentally ill at the hospital but now I'm limited to a couple of hours spread between before and after work.

2) My family's just getting busier.  My "little" chitlins are now between 8-12 years old so we're frequently doing something most nights and also weekends.  I think we're only going to get busier unless I can figure out how to stunt their growth.

3) I'm going to turn 40 next year ( icon_eek )and have this crazy goal that I'm going to run a marathon sometime when I'm 40.  I'm currently running 3-4 times a week and have a half-marathon coming up in early April if I don't injure myself and fall apart before then.  That's keeping me plenty busy.

I'm not planning on going anywhere and I'll still be posting frequently.  Ron, naednek and the other mods (welcome Kevin Grey!!  w00t!) have things well under control so I know things are in good hands.  I also plan on updating the trader feedback once more before turning it over to the rest of the crew.

Thanks all!

p.s. I'm really hoping to finally ban Ceekay before I step down, so if he "disappears" you'll know what happened...  paranoid

It's the end of an era. Sorry to see you go. You were always quick to edit tubgirl out of the posts of that malcontent that frequented the board for a while.

Kevin Grey as a mod? I guess Ron wanted someone ruthless to replace you...

Good luck with that marathon, Paulito!

And look at the bright side... maybe you can let a swear word loose every once in a while now!

Paul,
It's going to be weird without you-you have been a great, mostly hands off moderator-always someone who felt like just another forum buddy yet did the unenviable job as well as possible. I still hope we will have you around here as much time as you can spare.

Thanks for all the hard work!

This is like that scene in Tombstone where Wyatt Earp's oldest brother dies... you know, the Hulks girlfriend's dad? The one who helped Swayze clean up that bar.

Damn, I wished he hadn't handed the reigns over to Nick Cage.

You DO realize he isn't leaving right?  He's just not going to be actively plotting modding behind the scenes.  The keys to the Iron Maiden torch will be passed to Kevin who I'm sure will oppress the peasants keep the peace just like Paul did.  Not to worry folks, Paul isn't leaving the forums or anything.

No comment **cough** glances over at the news clipping of Hetz falling from a Bay area bridge with a PS3 chained to his ankle.

I've only been posting here for about a year, but I've really appreciated the moderating you've done here Warning.
I also think KG's a great choice as a moderator, only because he can take down anyone who's acting like an asshat with words alone.
