Hi again guys. It has been fun being back but I can't stay. This time, my departure will be permanent.
I feel you deserve a reason for why I am leaving, so here it is:
I have edited this wiki for almost 6 years - the first 3 of them, I was here almost every hour that I wasn't asleep or at school. At it's peak, there were at least a dozen users active at all times of the night and day and 24-hour discussions and debates. Together, we built this place from nothing.
When I was upgrading our new b'crats, I gave a glance to the names of our inactive admins - the likes of SSD and Pete. I had some of the best years of my life working alongside them and ended up knowing most of them just as well as my real-life friends. Today, none of those people ar…Read more >
Due to declining participation, I have proposed some fairly radical changes at Forum:Changes - to replace the forums, user talk pages and article talk pages.
I would appreciate it if people would head over, have a read, and make a decision. The outcomes will affect how all of use use the site - and especially how we interact with each other.

You may recall I retired over 2 years ago. Somehow, here I am again. I did originally just stop by to do a bit of requested housekeeping, but as always it's ended up being more. I can't stay as I have a dissertation to finish in the next 3 weeks.
However, I thought the community should be updated on a few things. As Slopijoe and 3RDRANGER have both announced their intentions to retire, we are without a permanent, active b'crat. A vote for replacement(s) is ongoing at BF:RFA (it's not a head-to-head contest, either user nominated just has to pass their own vote to be upgraded).
However, it has been brought to my attention that PSKwhirled was upgraded to bureaucrat rights by Slopijoe before he left. I thought it was best to make this sta…Read more >
I'm posting this from my new home at university. As a result of my studies, I'll not be able to be as active here as I usually am/previously have been - a sort of semi-active semi-retirement.
I'm still following all the major pages, with email notifications, so I may be back every now and then. If you do want my opinion or comment on, or help with, anything, just leave me a message on my talk page and I'll come and do my thing.
Thanks for continuing to help make this a radically different and far superior site to when I first started editing here, and I wish you all the best for the future. Thanks.14:57, October 1, 2011 (UTC) Read more >
I have just been reading the latest post on the Wikia Staff blog - Social Media & Wiki Promotion.
If you scroll down to the section entitled 'Wikis with successful social media strategies', you'll find a mention of us and a link to our Twitter feed!
