So, it looks like it’s time to mosey! I’ve been here for a good 10+ years, and although lately I have not been active, I found it only fitting that since I’m leaving this place for other opportunities that I would make my last communication here on the forum, where I was “born” more of less.
The AN forums have changed in so many ways since I’ve been here: it’s gone from a custom mish mash of message boards put together by first time coders, to the vBulletin system, to that god awful Kunena, and finally to this current incarnation (which I think is just great.) I’ve seen members come, go, come back, become moderators, become lifelong friends, real life couples, and even get married and have kids! That makes this place truly special to me and everyone who has come here in the past decade, be it for a short time or for years and years. Moderating/Admining this forum in its original incarnation was my first real job EVER, and I pretty much grew up here, with other members like @Hentai (who is in med school last I heard), @wolfo (Last seen in South America), @Alitadark (from Hawaii by way of North Dakota), @psychopuppet (the eternal mod), and of course @Slowhand, who I would have been absolutely lost without. Seriously, she is awesome and I can’t even begin to count the ways that she’s improved this place and kept it together. ^_~
This site will always hold a special place in my heart, and the times I spent in the forums playing around with you special few were perhaps some of the funnest moments I had working here. I wish you all the very best, and I hope deep down that in some big or small way, you find something as meaningful and beautiful in this place as I have. Bye bye!
