Well, I guess the time has finally come.
After spending hundreds of hours in the servers, on the forums, and in the discord over the last few years I’ve decided that it’s finally time for me to step down from my Board of Directors position.
As most of you have probably seen I’ve been pretty MIA following the end of the pandemic due to my other responsibilities outside of this community. I’ve been hoping that it would get better this summer and allow me the time and attention to devote to Steam-Gamers needed, but sadly I’ve only gotten busier. I don’t believe it’s fair to all of you to hold this position while not contributing to the same level that the other directors have been in the present state and when there are so many other hard-working members of this community who are currently more deserving of this position.
I originally joined this community back when I was 12 years old when it was just a bunch of CS:S servers and still being run by Haggard and Spartan. Honestly, it was some of the best years of my childhood and I still have great memories from back then and all the shit we used to get up to. I can without a doubt tell you I was just as big a headache for the higher ups as some of you are to us in the present.
When I first logged back into the forums after having been gone for years I was absolutely astonished to see that the torch was still burning bright and while the community had changed over the years, it was still there kicking and alive. Never in that first moment did I expect to end up in my current position 3 years later. Having the opportunity to come back generations later to contribute as a staff member has been an absolute honour and I’m absolutely blessed to have had the opportunity to work for this community again.
Steam-Gamers has always been a passion project based on a collective effort and the amount of work some people volunteer into this community is absolutely unfathomable. I could go on and on about how much amazing work people have put into this community, but this list would go on for way too long if I did. Instead, I just want to say thank you to everyone who has put any amount of work into this community, whether it be as an admin, staff, higher up or even just as a regular. You guys are the ones who make this community what it is.
I have the utmost faith in the current staff that they will lead this community in the right direction, not everyone will always agree with them but they genuinely want to see this place succeed.
I'll never forget the laughs, memories, and all the new friendships.
Thanks for everything.
