This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.
The message boards have been upgraded. Please log in to your existing account by clicking here. It will ask twice, so that it can properly update your password and login information.

No surprise at all to me. I told him publicly just yesterday it was time for him to quit. He turned the discussion of his hobby into work for himself - "work" in the "four letter word" sense. He's obviously been burned out on being a mod for quite some time, and carried on out of a sense of duty.

It can only do him good to have a rest from that sort of bullshit, and to just plain talk shit about rpgs. Hell, maybe the poor bugger will even get to play some. A husband and father doing paid work only has so much time for his hobbies; if he's tossed aside the "moderating rpg.net" hobby, maybe he'll have time for his roleplaying hobby. Me, I've no idea why anyone would ever choose the former over the latter. Discussing roleplaying is to support roleplaying, not replace it.

Scary thing is, who'll replace him as senior admin, eh?

Being bannzored, I can't read - I assume he quit? Or at least took a leave of absence?

Only problem is, he was about the only reasonable mod there,  IMO. Well, not a roblem for ME anymore, but you get my drift.

Maybe Kuma will come back :D  He's the one who really instigated most of the modwars anyhow.

After much consideration I have come to realize that this place just isn’t for me anymore. This isn’t due to any single specific incident or occasion; rather, a growing understanding that it is time for me to move on.

As such, I am stepping down as Forum Administrator, effective immediately. I may stop in again at some point to talk about games, but for the most part, I'm gone.

Have fun, folks.

maybe he'll post more here, we could use some new blood around here.

All I know of him from RPG.net and here is that I don't have any problems with him, and that's more than enough for me.  And even if I had problems with him, I'd welcome him anyway. I got no axes to grind about forums. If I ever really had any, I've laid them aside in favor of a much more balanced view towards unreality.
For you the day you found a minor error in a Post by Spike and forced him to admit it, it was the greatest day of your internet life.  For me it was... Tuesday.

For the curious: Apparently, in person, I sound exactly like the Youtube Character The Nostalgia Critic.   I have no words.

Now this is important rpg.net news.

And I'll usually give Cessna the benefit of the doubt on most things because his enthusiasm introduced me to the lovely world of Tekumel.  That alone puts him in the Thumbs Up section in my book.

Anyone who would describe himself as a commissar and advocates a POV that goes "just don't read it just doesn't cut it" can go to hell AFAIC.
RPGPundit is a fucking fascist asshole and a hypocritial megadouche.

He's been here for a while, David. He may not be back, but he knows the neighborhood.

Would you please just let this go.  RPG.net doesn't love you anymore, you can shut up about it now.
