    The end of my illustrious reign.

    Hello internet-friends,

    This post is to notify you that I have resigned from the noble post of RPS Forum Moderator! My reasons for this are placid and few.

    Firstly, I noticed in myself a tendency to become so enmeshed in moderation that I failed to fulfill my primary and all-important purpose, Chatting About Computer Games...or, to fulfill that purpose I would quietly drift over to other websites where the crushing weight of volunteer responsibility did not loom. Which is of course disastrous. So rather than let the mundane distractions pile to critical levels at which point I disappear into the cyber-night never to be seen or heard from again, I decided I had better clear them out and focus on my core competencies (such as hit points, experience points, skill points, victory points and et cetera).

    Secondly, I anticipate becoming rather preoccupied in future months (as the population of my realm is expected to increase again) and so would likely face a situation of prolonged uselessness here, which would gnaw upon my conscience despite the assurances of one and all that it was quite alright...the guilt eventually driving me to rise from my bed and commit a 4:00am moderation binge...goodness me, such a mess.

    Having as I have had, a premonition of such horrors as await us all if I remain in my present position, I have asked to be divested of my powers and returned to my former status as an ordinary gentleman and member of this forum, and have been promptly (though not, I flatter myself, with the promptitude of long-suppressed eagerness) obliged.

    I have been considering this for a while now but execute the plan in a rush and only mention it after the fact because of the inherent dangers of being One Day Away From Retirement. At any rate, I am happy to have had the honor of infracting, renaming, moving and otherwise improving your posts for all these long years! I trust you will remember me fondly, but that in the future you will treat me with frankness and equality, as peers, as any other man in the street, however tempted you may be to shower me with honors, accolades, or dumbstruck reverence.

    I don't know half of you half as well as I should like, and I like less than etc. etc...
    I will rest comfortably in the knowledge that the moderation team remains as sufficient, conscientious and energetic in my absence as ever it did in my presence! My fellow janitors who outlast me -- I will consider it a delight to be infracted by any of you.

    In conclusion:

    The Secret of Gargoyle Manor, a browser point-and-click adventure about retrieving your lost hat whatever the cost, is something you could play!

    I believe it comes from listening to a very lot of Charles Dickens in recent days and late into the night. I'm sure it will wear off soon enough. :P

    Look at that smirk on Alladin's face. Big-headed bastard.

    Ahem! All the best to you, Berzee. Here's hoping that your lamp won't be burried too deep into the sands of the arid sea that is the internet. You are required to keep us up-to-date with your game-making projects, I'd hate to miss out on those gems.

    So you will diminish, and go into the West and remain Galadriel? Excellent, good luck with the kingdom enlargement.
