So long and thanks for all the fertilizer

Postby Ransium » Sun Nov 22, 2020 7:17 am

Mangrove seed pods can float on water and successfully root thousands of miles away from the parent mangrove with no additional input from the parent tree. I am not really a mangrove and I’ve found my little seedling to be a bit more work than that.

I’ve decided to retire from being a mod. My plan right now is to continue to maintain this nation and maybe some presence in my chosen haunts, but if I do CTE you can be rest assured it’s because I’m focusing on more important things.

Cheers,
Ransium

I know we may not have interacted many times, but I think you were a good mod in your tenure. I'm sure the mods and the general community will miss you. Good luck on your future endeavours! :)

Aww, sad to see you go. You have definitely been very helpful with me with the coding stuff, especially when it comes to NS Stats data.

All the best as a non-Mod, and hope you will be sticking around as an Issues Editor! :hug:

They should keep you on the IE team officially even when you're inactive, in case you ever want to come back in a few years time. Just my opinion though.
