Announcement My Resignation & Farewell

Discussion in 'Announcements' started by SkellyX, Jul 14, 2017.

  1. Hey everyone,

    After spending the last week deep in thought and considering some real life options, it is with great sadness that I announce to you that as of today, I will be stepping down as owner of The Minecart. Firstly, I want to stress that this has absolutely nothing to do with the server itself or any factors surrounding the server. The fact is, I have recently been presented with a real life opportunity, such is its potential that I would be an absolute idiot to pass it up for the sake of maintaining my activity level on a game. Such opportunities don't come round all that often and so I've decided to take it. I'll be moving to a new place and I'll be taking all my possessions with me, but I think this would be the ideal time - as I approach the age of 21 - to leave Minecraft behind, enter this new phase of my life and make the most of the opportunity I've been presented with.

    With that said, please do not think the server is in any kind of disarray or that things are going downhill. Quite the opposite in fact, I know all about the big plans that are coming up in the near future and I'm genuinely disappointed I can't be part of it. Furthermore, it's important to note that Lac will still remain owner and the team will mostly remain the way it is, nothing will be changing in that regard. Lac still has a very capable backend team behind him so I'm sure my absence won't affect things too much. I apologise that this has come out of the blue and hope I haven't let anyone down, but this decision is based on my future and what it could look life if I took this chance. If I passed it up I'd probably regret it, so I need to take it and see what might come of it.

    I want to give a huge thank you to all the members and staff - past and present - who have made my time here extremely enjoyable and thank you all especially for the dedication and hard work you have put in throughout my time as owner - everything you have done has been greatly appreciated and I will miss you greatly. I also want to say thank you to @Deprive, without whom my job here would have been extremely difficult. It has been quite the journey mate; from you getting me [falsely] demoted, to us becoming co-owners. You have genuinely been my best friend here and someone I have grown to respect immensely - it's been a pleasure getting to know you. I know you will continue to keep up the good work and do right by the server - as we have always striven to do since we took over. The Minecart (and formerly Mineslam) has been a big part of my life since I joined in 2014. It has been a great few years, from starting out as a humble Skyblock player, to getting Helper and working my way up the ranks here - I've loved every minute. I have met some great people and hold some great memories.

    Thank you everyone. I leave here happy in everything I have achieved, with no regrets and with malice to none. I wish you all well in everything that you do, and I wish this server and the team every success.

    Farewell,

    ~Skelly

  11. Skelly, you will always be missed. Hopefully you come back someday like you have previously, and hopefully everything will become the same again, but have luck in your new life -fire.

    Edit: For all the reasons above you should not be demoted by yourself -1

  12. I'm short for words. Your absence in the team is a sad situation, though we will try our best, to serve and execute this server's rules, and improve it.

    Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for all your efforts.
