Well, it's about that time, everybody.

I've been putting this off for a while now, so I'm sure anybody who's been paying attention has seen the writing on the wall for some time. I guess what it comes down to is that I didn't really want to come to terms with the fact that this chapter of my life is over. I've had a lot of good times here, made a lot of good friends. This place changed my life permanently, and I don't even mean that in some kind of kitschy "I'll always have you all in my hearts" kind of way, I mean genuinely you can track the changes in my life that this website brought, there are so, so many. I met a lot of good friends here and made some unforgettable memories, and I don't really want to say goodbye to that.

But it's simply a fact that my interests have moved on from this, my passion for maintaining the forum has waned, and I've been unavailable in ways that are just flat-out unacceptable for someone of my position in the forum. I don't do the work I once did, and I just can't summon the interest for it that I once had. So... as of today, I am stepping down from my positions as administrator and featurer. I'm a little regretful that I couldn't give more to the forum, but I look back at everything we did here, what we've accomplished and where we've gone since I took my position as moderator, and I have to think... maybe I've done enough, you know?

Thank you to everybody who's been there for me over my time as a moderator, administrator, and featurer here - the staff, the users, all of you. It'd be hard to count the people who've had a positive impact on me over my time as a staff member here. And I wish all of you good luck in continuing to build a community that stands strong and fast over the course of the years.

You're all welcome to contact me any time for any reason - I'll still be a ping or DM away on Discord. But I'm more than ready to retire from forum running to drinks in Malibu. Peace, y'all, it's been real.

Their body is made of an intricate and interconnected weave of their own puns.
It's truly the end of an era. As you say, can't say I'm surprised, but you will be greatly missed (although I'll always be there to yell at you about something).

Presumably rejected resignation thread titles included "Hey, Me, Get Off Of My Cloud", "I Knew Jim So Well," and "I Wandered Lonely As A Jimcloud."

You mention how much this place changed your life, but I think the reverse is absolutely true as well. You've had such an outsized and tangible impact on the forums basically from day one, and that doesn't even get into the intangible. You've done more than enough to be able to walk into any and every damn sunset you want. Thank you for years of serving and improving the forums from just about every angle, and thanks just for being here and being an awesome person.

Also, call this a follow-up vote for "Hey, Me, Get Off Of My Cloud"

You did good Jim. You did good. Not much else to say, other than that I’ll miss you and your puns.

awwww man Jim. Obviously your own life comes first but this is definitely a bummer to hear.

Obviously you'll be missed here, so let me just say thank you for doing a spectacular job here. You really did a phenominal job administrating this place.

Their mind is more often in the clouds than not. Most likely sick. Will probably eat your snacks.
An end of an era, indeed. This place has grown so much during your time here - I'd say you more than deserve your walk into retirement. Thank you so much and good luck on the next chapter in your life!!

This Pokemon is inconcievably cute. It tries to intimidate its foes with its long, luscious locks, but to little avail.
and here i was thinking that you were secretly an immortal god of administration that would eternally watch over us :v

jokes aside, thank you so much for everything you've done, you've earned this retirement 10 times over and you'll always be beloved in this community that you've helped shape. we'll miss you!

This Pokemon can sometimes be found meticulously editing and re-editing it's own content, never satisfied with the results.
It'll never be the same without you on the team Jim. Thanks for all you've done over the years, and enjoy your retirement!

If you encounter a wild Kadew, best practice is to gently bully her into remembering that she loves to draw. She forgets, sometimes.
We love you Jim! Thank you for everything you've done.

Redninjapuffles are known to want to create their own nuzlocke stories or comics, however, many have yet to start one.

They travel in clowders of up to 12. They swim well and have big powerful jaws, which they put to use hunting their prey.
Dropped in to say I’m sad to see you go, but I wish you luck on your future endeavours!

Hey I just saw this post. Even though I haven't been active on here in recent years, I couldn't help but feel a sad when I saw this. But I wish you the best of luck in everything and thank you for all you've done over the years!
