Hanging my italics

Rate this Entry
Hey guys,

I just resigned as a staff member, because I found it increasingly hard to fit moderating in my schedule. It may look easy on the outside, but it's almost like a real job, and it requires a lot of time, energy and commitment, more than I think a lot of users realize, to keep this place running as smoothly as it does and I want to pay tribute to the dedicate team of staffers who really put their all into making this the best pokémon forum on the Internet. I loved working with my fellow staffers and I loved working on both the War Room and the Animé Section. I'm especially proud to see how far the War Room came and how it really established itself as one of the funnest and most welcoming section on Bulbagarden. To see the way it is now compared to when I started modding is like... night and day and that's through the hard work of the moderators there and the awesome users we have there. The Animé section too, I know some people feel like it's still rocky, but from what it was even a year ago to now, there's been some major improvement and it's still a fun place to chat and argue about silly children's cartoons. :P

I want to thank everyone, both staff and users, because you made modding here a real joy and while I won't be here quite as much, I'll still drop in from time to time, so keep it touch.

    Gible, you will always be one of the best members, and one of my best friends, on the forums no matter what you do. Please stay in contact, I hope that you find happiness and solace in life.

    I'm very happy you've found happiness in life outside Bulba. :) You were one of my most important role models on this site (specifically in Anime) when I was still new here, and I'm glad we became good friends. Stay in touch~

    Best Wishes! The lack of activity in the few weeks made me wonder where you were at.

    Good work as a mod, and good luck with stuff in real life. And hey, what's wrong with being a regular user? ^^;

    Aww, it's sad to see you go since you were the one who contacted me to become a moderator and all, but real life is much more important than some silly forums. You've done an amazing job as the head of the War Room and helped shaping it into what it is today. Best of luck in everything you'll do!

    First of how I can't really put into words just how much of a big loss this is staff wise. There's a ton of great people here on Bulbagarden who put their passion into making the place better and I feel priviledged that I was able to work so closely in several different areas with someone who I consider to put that extra little spark in their work during the good days and the bad ones.

    More importantly though I consider you one of my best friends here on Bulbagarden, and that's because good day or bad you would never falter in offering a listening ear, advice or a classic "Gible" joke to brighten my mood and day. I'm a bit sad that you won't be on here as often but that's nothing compared to my happiness that you'll still be around and even more so that you're doing what you think is right for you.

    Thank you =]

    I love you Gibbu <3 Maybe even more than I miss you. Come on Skype sometimes and we can fawn over hot guys together just like old times <3

    You're one of the most mature people I have ever met on the Internet. The smiles you bring have brightened people and made their day countless of times. If it weren't for you, I don't think the forum would have become what it is today. It's a shame that you won't be on here as much. Just remember, your contribution here won't be forgotten.

    Best Wishes!

    I can understand your sentiments 100%. Being in a full-time job these past 2 years has really worn me down, so even if I had the qualifications, I wouldn't try to take on mod duties here because it's plain as day how much of a job in of itself that is. You've been great during your tenure, and while it sucks to lose you, no doubt your happiness and sanity are much more important. The more we grow older, the more demanding real life tends to be, so it's good that you know your limits so that you didn't completely wreck yourself by taking on more than what you could handle.

    But definitely don't be a stranger! You're a total bro; I don't wanna see you disappear. :P
