It must be hard giving up modship. Even if it wasn't enjoyable, giving up power is never easy (at least not for me).
I hope you're making the right decision, but knowing you, I'm sure you've thought this through.
Good luck with everything
Could you just forget about my idea regarding the reform of the HotM system? I've been thinking about it lately and it just doesn't seem like a very realistic nor effective system. I believe that sticking with the old system for deciding eligible hacks would be the best choice. I'm not sure if you were even considering my idea in the first place but the more I think about it, the more I realize that it isn't going to work very smoothly. So unless you were actually planning on incorporating it (of which I am highly doubtful), I'd recommend that you just don't worry about it. I'm sure you've got enough problems to worry about what with balancing being a moderator and your real life. Don't let something so trivial get in the way of more important issues.
Thanks in advance,
Is this week's issue of the ROM Hackers Newsletter running late? I'm not trying to rush you or anything. I just wanted to make sure I didn't miss it. The old thread was locked and I haven't seen the new thread yet so I'm just making sure it hasn't been posted in a new location.
