Post subject: Sorry I quit Reply with quote

Sorry, just can't do this anymore.

I am quitting as of now as a moderator and head mod.

I have put all my heart and soul into this since January. But I just really cannot go on. I have begun to hate GM, and that is not what I want.

I will not log in here on moderator account or the game until such a time that Bill/kreso can remove me from the postion completely.

Those people who are to blame, you know who you are-


As for me, I ain't playing again until somebody apologizes to Trace and things change around here



Later you silly twits

I am sorry to hear you say that Trace.

I hope you reconsider.

Don't let the few bad apples ruin something you enjoy.

sorry day for gm indeed Sad
i sincerely ask Trace to reconsider her decision , in my view , she has been among the best mods ever in GM,

GM needs you trace, even if u cant be a mod , i am sure you can work out something to continue to be involved with the game. something taking the bulk of the pressure of you.

This is a classic tale of over moderation/exposure.......... if a moderator is overmoderating they're setting themselves up to get burned or worn out with the game is what it is

there are more then 20 cheats/complaints etc probably a day in the cheat section so to handle all of this with all of the angry players on top of going through and finding all these cheat / problem players is too much esp if the mod duty isn't equal..........plus spending hours upon hours at this game everyday can be easily overwhelming for a non seasoned player/mod..... i can go on steaks of playing like a few hours a day for maybe a month but then have to stop for a few b/c if you're playing to get high points and competing is completely different then just playing for fun

maybe 1/4 of the mod work can be reduced with leaner mod reviews of every detail going on......i dont know really but now there prob will be no choice w/the mod who did the most work departing

such high mod turn over here..... over 100% per year

hmm is it possible to see who is online as guests? or guest ip addresses? maybe shes still active but in quandry or overwhelmed and someone can help her w/this........... then she resumes? Idea

I don't know about ya'll but her annoucement seemed really sudden and unexpected at this exact time esp b/c things seemed to be headed the right direction with GM until the game review I guess where GM was given a decent rating but but kinda not so hot comments....i thnk she said in her reply to the game review that even GM admin was dissapointed w/the comments so many this was her tipping point too...... i didn't read thoroughly tho if she sighted a reason in her resignation

i know for a fact tho its possible for mods to come back and mod at later times after they resign and if approved .... i know this b/c i asked once before

damn it i keep replying to the wrong posts then the ones i intend to select... why cant this forum show more clearly which topic ur replying to before u reply to it

Firstly, Toon say hi back to Jarae and tell her to get back playing Very Happy

Secondly, thank you all for your support.

This is a new account I've made as my other one still has the head mod on it. I haven't left GM, I have only quit the mod role. I don't want to change my mind, in fact the truth is I think I have done the right thing for me.

I know it seemed out of the blue, and in some ways it was. I had been seriously considering quitting 2 weeks ago. I tried to take that week break hoping it would change my mind.

Ultimately it was just one bad day that made me decide for good. I know where I went wrong in many ways, but it is really too late to change it.
I won't say I will never ever return, but for the moment I have no intention to.

I will still be playing, so you can't get rid of me that easily Laughing

sometimes ppl make subconscious decisions they do not know exactly the reason for when trying rationalize it at once....... it could be a grander scheme of things type of decision and prob more important then a simple reason

i would put it all aside then wait 6-8 weeks to adjust to non modship and by the 6-8 weeks ull know if u made the right decision b/c it takes 6-8 weeks to adjust to ne thing new or 1/4 of the time spent at the previous situation

late
