DJ Omnimaga resigns from Omnimaga manager
« on: December 21, 2010, 07:52:08 pm »
Until further notice (most likely for the entire holiday vacations) I will now remain as regular Omnimaga forum member, active posting, but I am retiring from my administrator position. This means I will not be answering forum-related requests for the entire time.

Since I quit calculator programming 4 months ago, I do not have anymore calculator projects, and thus, I cannot remain in the programming team either. I also do not have any op privilege on Netbot45 anymore. So for now, I will be a normal forum member instead of staff or manager. I will still be as active posting as I am now, though.

The reason why I am temporary resigning is due to the increasing amount of stress that comes with a forum manager position since the past two and half a month, ranging from moderation to large amounts of requests. I like to participate in forum discussions, but the extreme amount of stress the admin position came with in the past months has made me lose motivation over time. Before, I was impatient to come back from work and check forum active topics and participate. Now I have to force myself to post, most of the time. When I feel like posting, I usually end up spending the entire time into moderation, instead. Sometimes, it also seems from the people involved that I'm not even doing a good job at running the site. In other words, this is why I need some time off from my admin position, and would prefer to simply remain a regular active member. I had in mind to do this for over a month already. Today the time has come.

For site requests and issues, you will now have to ask Hot_Dog, Eeems, Builderboy or Ztrumpet, depending of their activity, as the task is now distributed among them.

The reasons you give to doing so are fair and I totally understand them. You have good arguments to proof your point.

However, I can't conceive seeing you as normal member for some reason, you are able to handle a huge community and believe me, the best ti calculators community in the web. You are one of the very few who can do it, so you are the best admnistrator we could have since you are also the founder.

Sorry DJ, I would like to see you turning back your decision :)

I can definitely see where you're coming from, and I hope you enjoy your break. It's definitely a well deserved one.

Keep in mind everyone that he's not leaving us forever :P
active posting,
and that he won't even not be as admin for that long:
(most likely for the entire holiday vacations)
(not that I'm holding it to you to un-retire as soon as holidays are over :P)

Also to DJ, remember that we have 4 other admins and 10 staff that can help you out on the moderating side; we'll always (at least, most of the time XD) be here to support you :)

If I could work on TAO (*couch* Eeems *cough* oasis *cough*) then I could become a COT.

Anyway, Dj, enjoy your vacation!

Enjoy your vacation DJ! It's well deserved.
Glad to know you'll still be around, though.

My projects haven't been worked on in a while, so they're all on hiatus for the time being. I do hope to eventually return to them in some form or another...

Spoiler For Pokemon TI:
Axe port of Pokemon Red/Blue to the 83+/84+ family. On hold.

Spoiler For Nostalgia:
My big personal project, an original RPG about dimensional travel and a few heroes tasked with saving the world.
Coding-wise, on hold, but I am re-working the story.

Spoiler For Finale's Super Insane Tunnel Pack of Doom:
I will be combining Blur and Collision Course into a single gamepack. On hold.

Spoiler For Nostalgia Origins: Sky's Story:
Prequel to Nostalgia. On hold, especially while the story is re-worked.

I can indeed imagine the stress of running this thing. Also because it seems that I provoke lots of stress around here :s. So, it's nice to see you're gonna relax for a time :D

Yeah, I'm starting with ZDS right now, while trying to do usb stuff. I need to define many enemies, so I need to figure out the story-line exactly. (I have a good idea on how to do that)

This is better than before when it was because people were disrespectful to DJ.  Somehow, I don't think this is not going to change much.  DJ will still post, and we will still all respect him, manager or not.  ;)

Spoiler For =====My Projects=====:
Minor setback due to code messing up.  On hold for Contest.
