Thank you Squeak, Unko Talok, EngrInAz, Inem, Admin Chuck, Admin TeufelHeunden, hvg3akaek, Ion2Atom and ItsaVerb! I'm really going to miss you all in the Staff forums.

I have some good memories of great games with Teufelheunden and TheChuck (Admin Chuck) at RPG Crossing and, although those games hit the pause button long ago now, I'm definitely sad to be acknowledging how little we are seeing of them these days. Definitely a moment to feel the passage of time.

My memory involves Admin Chuck, and you Birched. The entire reason I found the site was looking for a Darksun game and I got to play in the Darksun game with both of you. Thank you for the memories.

Dark Sun... Loved that group! Good to see you are still around Shadowcat.

Congrats to the retirees, and many thanks to the Reds still steering the ship.

A big thanks to all the retiring staff for the free labor, love, and fun you've given us.

Big praise to Teufelheunden, without whom I don't believe we would have much in the way of integrated character sheets. I could be wrong/missing someone on that matter, but many, many thanks for all the hard work you've put into this site.

Big huggin' shout-out to hvg3akaek, who played in the first campaign I ran on this site and was the coolest cucumber about all of it.

Also special nod to Unko Talok, my oldest friend on the website and the only person I know of having been on-staff twice!

You're all awesome in my book! You have my appreciation for all the hard work and not-so-hard work you've done to make this community run smoothly!

For posterity, that one time Squeak was both a current and former staff member.

I think it's cute that you believe someone is steering the ship. We're too busy fixing the holes Squeak keeps drilling to let the water out to get to the wheel!

Thanks to all the moderators, former, retiring, current, and future!

The longevity of tenure of some of you is truly amazing. And the fact that the site is still up and running is a testament to your commitment.

You all have been amazing staff. Some of you retiring have been Red since before even I joined. Sad to see you go because it's long time staff like you all that I thought might be staff forever.

Now Dirk... I think he might be immortal... Cause I think he has alread been staff forever. Lol.

Nope. Pretty sure I started after Squeak. Not sure though. Maybe not.
It only feels like forever, because every day you spend with me feels like a lifetime.


Dang, when did I start?

It gets really bad when you starting listening to and retelling the stories Admin Dirk tells, and then he starts listening and believing in the stories you tell about the stories....
