that was a bit kneejerk on my part

sorry for getting indecisive but I'm gonna walk back on this. I've been doing this long enough to know that if I'm getting on begrudgingly at the verge of burnout, that's just gonna make me burn out faster. So, back on LOA I go, but I'd still like to help out where I can while still keeping my distance a bit; I'm not exactly fully recharged and I've been feeling dread ever since I made that post.

I'm gonna point back to this post because I think many people are feeling that same sense of dread.

we've had the foot on the accelerator since launch and now that we've eased off the gas a little, it hurts to see people act like the sky is falling after half a year of pretty regular activity

personally i think a part of it got to the point that a lot of good people couldn't keep up, and a few either needed to leave the team and focus on other aspects of their life or take an extended loa.
I think a better way to explain the kind of dread I'm talking about is to say it's a fear of missing out on something we all put a lot of sweat, blood, tears, heart into. we all feel that, but while not everyone is worn out, some are, and you can't keep the foot on the gas forever and keep redlining. You gotta stop for fuel, and once in a while you need to change your oil. Those of you that do feel like you need a break, take a break, and evaluate ways you can improve the experience for everyone while you are gone. That's what I'm planning on doing. I'm gonna try not to stress out about putting this on hold and you shouldn't either. If people aren't interested after a little break, they wouldn't have been interested in the story now. Oh well; things get left on the cutting room floor. For those of you not feeling exhausted, and still feeling a craving for the setting, don't let a population of 11 or 5 or 3 hold you back while we're in a lull. Tell smaller-scale stories.

That said, this week and next week I don't have students, so I will have a little more free time for a blip. Moreso next week than this coming week; I still have a lot of work for that time even if students are out. I left a few big stories unfinished when I dipped out for LOA, and if people are interested in picking up where I left off, I'm happy to come back for a short while and help tell a little more of those ongoing stories. If people aren't interested, no biggie, I might just stream a few games in discord for people instead; I've been wanting to do another playthrough of one of the Marathon games.

I was offered a spot on the admin team twice, but joined only after bennet 'resigned'. Had I known this was going to be such a big farce, I wouldn't have even bothered. Shadow RDA was somehow easy to swallow, but I really can't stand this.

Had a good time though I realize I was never the most active driving force behind the team and the iteration. No hard feelings towards anyone except the obvious.

I resign.
Only replying to this cause I actually think people should know the kind of bully you are. Months of me being a 'shadow RDA' and having no involvement at all and you aggressively following up my messages with some snide bait shit? That's fine since I never respond, but the second my name switches from white to red and you take the easy way out during HL2's lull? Sad ass dude.

I’m resigning :(

My son was just born, and I likely won’t have the time moving forward to assist in a way that is either meaningful or fair. I’ve loved my time here as an admin, and while there were a thousand other things I wanted to run and assist with, I had fun with everything I was a part of.

In all my 12 or 13 years in this community, I’ve never held an administrative position - and finally being a part of the team during my last stay here was an absolute honor. I probably won’t be staying around as a player, but I’ll still shitpost in the guns-and-stuff discord channel and anyone who wants to reach out to me on discord is certainly welcome to.

I’ve made a lot of good friends, and I wish you all the best. Make the new HLNA the greatest that it can be, and keep this dinosaur alive and kicking for me.
