Last Admin announcement from a husky.
« on: November 24, 2013, 11:03:13 am »
As some people may have noticed in another forum, I am stepping down as an Admin, and am possibly leaving Furtopia. The post I make here now constitutes my last thread as an Admin in the Administerial Roars and Woofs forum.

What can I say about my time here as an Admin? Probably: Busy, Hectic, Stressful, Demanding, and a few other words. Was it fun? Maybe. It depends on how you look at it. Not fun in that you have to discipline people and make rules, etc. But fun in that you're helping to give back your time, skills, knowledge, etc. to a community that has lasted 10+ years and make this a safe, respectable, and enjoyable site for people to come to and learn about the furry fandom.

I've enjoyed my time here, but real life must come first. As I have often said from time to time in the past, being a staff person is not an easy job. And helping to manage this website isn't easy either. It takes a person of good attitude, skill, quality, temperment, trust, and especially Respect, to do the kinds of things I and the other staff members do here.

Granted, I haven't been perfect at everything I've done when I was a Watcher, then Mod, and then Admin. I do make mistakes just as much as anybody else. But I try to do the best job I can to the best of my ability to make things fair, just, and right here. And for those times I've had to discipline people and "lay down the law" so to speak, then I'm sorry. But it's a part of the job I had to do. It "comes with the territory" so to speak.

For the current (and future) staff that is helping to manage Furtopia, I wish you well in taking care of this place. :)
For the members, you've got a good site here to enjoy. Family-friendly, fun, and respectable. Use it wisely. While Furtopia may not have a lot of "perks" (services) that other places have, rest assured, you've got one of the better (or best) furry forums on the Net.

Take care, folks. *huskyhugs*

So it's been a little over a month since I stepped down. How's my retirement? I'll tell you:

I HATE IT!  :goldpissed:

The damn staff sent me to this god forsaken flea infested retirement community in the middle of nowhere! The food sucks! There's no cable tv! No heat in the bedroom on cold winter nights! No activities to do around here!

Damn you, Alsek and Weisseman and Ziel and all the rest! *waves cane angrily in the air*


Haha!   :D But seriously, I guess I could say it's about 50/50. There are times when I like having more free time to myself, and then there are times when I miss this place and helping out around here. Sometimes, I get bored and I start thinking to myself "Wasn't I supposed to check on something on the forums?"   But then I have to remember that I'm not a staff person anymore and I need to let the others handle the workload. It's tough being away from a place that you spent so much time and effort into.  :(  :'(

*Sneaks into Kobuks old office and liberates half of the equipment* "Won't be needing that anymore" :D

But in all seriousness.

I could tell you missed it a bit, but it's to be expected I guess, 10 years is a very long time as you know.

I would like you to know though, that Furtopia really wouldn't be the same if you hadn't been here so long, so you really have become a main symbol of the forums, and we all thank you a lot for such a long period of service and effort, plus it's nice to see you online every now and again still :)

Sorry, but my office, and all equipment (fax machine, copier, etc.) went to Storm Fox. ;)

Presses a button on a remote, you are then secretly teleported out of the office and into a muddy swampland 100 miles away.  :D


Part-time is.......well.....it's never been done before here. Not sure how that would work.  :P
