This is your Captain speaking... Goodbye!

Posted March 12th, 2014 at 1:08 PM by Captain Fabio

Well, I think it is time for me to step aside and let someone else have a shot at the Super Moderator position.

I have been on PC for a very long time and I have had a lot of good and bad memories here. Luckily, it has been more good memories and I still feel I am a shining example of how someone can change their ways if they really mean it. Things have been amazing with my time at PC and I don't regret it at all. Being Moderator of Video Games was so fun and always a tough job, because the forum is so active and popular, but very demanding in ways some might not understand till you actually moderate it. When I was given Moderator, I didn't really know what to expect, as I just kept myself to myself in that board most of the times and carried on with my ways, so being a Moderator meant big changes. However, being given S-Mod was the biggest shock for me. I never expected to even be considered for the position, but I have always been sad to leave VG, because I always wanted to keep it going and running under my control, but I couldn't do that anymore.

I am leaving with a seriously heavy heart, as I have been putting this decision off for a while now, over 3 months.

Why am I leaving? I honestly don't have time for PC currently. I am in an amazing job, but it is very demanding. I hardly have spare time, from the job, to seeing my girlfriend and seeing friends. It is just tooooo muchhhh to try and fit PC into it, because I have started to feel I am just coming on here because I should, not because I want too. Don't get me wrong, I will always love PC and that won't change, but if I don't have the drive to post, then I can't honestly stay here. I am not leaving PC forever, that isn't my current intention, but sometimes you have to move on because it is the right time. I would like to return in the future and I would love to lead from the top again as a Super Moderator, but I don't want the chance till I feel I have earnt it again.

I have so much to thank PC for; my girlfriend (kura) who we have been together nearly 2 years and I am seeing here this weekend too, friends, my attitude, my drive, my passion and so much more. The people here are great and the staff are great. We might not always see eye to eye (GAVIN), but we both know at the end of the day, away from PC, we are both buddies.

I don't want to ramble much, but that is it really. I realise some of you might have seen this coming and some of the newer staff don't even know what I have contributed to PC, but I wish you all the best.

So, for the last time, this is your Captain signing out.

    I liked VG a lot better with you around. Even when it was less active (in the way that there were less member posting, anyway) the discussions were strong. Shows that member activity means nothing when the quality of posts is not there.

    It's a shame to see you leave, but you're only making the best decision and I strongly support that. Have fun with life!

    I respect your decision, Will. I don't want to offend but I was wondering how your activity as of late has been quite less - so much so that even seeing you online today kinda surprised me lmao. Dont ask. XD

    anyway, you had a fine run. And you've got kura, an amazing person, as a gf and an amazing life. Not things you should compromise on obviously. Wish you all the best for everything, man! And since you plan to stick around, maybe we will get to the pokecommmunity yt video channel project we talked about someday? Not as staff maybe but as members helping out.

    anyway, again, best wishes with ya, mate.

    Ditto to your sentiments about staying for longer than you like (and for most of the post, to be honest). I certainly felt that towards the end. And it's probably for the best, given that you'll be leaving - I assume - on good terms with peeps. (Also, Gavin got a shout-out but I didn't? For shame, William. For shaaaaaaame.)

    But yeah, good luck, and I'll see you soon, probs!

    You mean "Gavin got a shout-out but the Overlord didn't? FOR SHAME, WILLIAM, FOR SHAAAAAAAAME!"

    But yeah I don't have much to say, I'm barely around here any more myself. If nothing else, I should see you guys during May. All the best with things and good luck for the future.

    You did an awesome job during your almost three-year-tenure on staff, but there's always a point where we have to move on. It may be sad to see you go, but good luck with all your real life plans!

    I really hope that you don't regret this decision like I did. You are a fantastic staff member who I looked up to when I was a moderator(and still do). While I know you haven't been around as much lately, that can't take away from everything that you did here at PC. I wish you the best of luck in the future and hope to still see you around sometimes.
