PostJay's Announcement

Surprise Post!
:cheers:

Some of you are probably thinking "who the hell is Jay? is he a new Admin?", this post is intended for the older class of Members that actually remember/know me and have put up with me for so long!

I’m the first to admit I haven’t been around as much as an Administrator and Creator of Dragon Ball Z Vortex should be. This isn’t a post full of excuses, justifications and second hand promises of redemption though.

This notice serves us my (official) announcement of my retirement from position as Administrator on Dragon Ball Z Vortex. My activity and sporadic appearances over the years are not really fitting of someone who should be the driving force and hero of Vortex. Being the creator of Vortex has given me diplomatic immunity for far too long – Vortex deserves good staff.

This is not another one of those ‘I’m leaving forever (...again)’ topics and as such I’ve exercised the last of my true admin power to make this an announcement rather than a post in the Welcome/Goodbye board (like the common folk do).

I won’t be retconned from Vortex though and have taken up the position of ‘Founder’. This new position will allow me to continue with the background presence and intermittent attendance without the ties of authoritative responsibilities and reliability tied to being an Administrator. I will still occasionally pop in, spout off ideas or wisdom, and then disappear for another few days/weeks/months only this time I won't be classed or feel like a bad administrator for it.

I have spoken with Blues Light about his future plans for Vortex (his intentions towards my daughter, if you will) - Blues Light is a good friend and one of the ancients when it comes to LSW Spriting. I have great respect for his passion and commitment and I am sure he is the best figurehead, inspiration and authority that we need. I am confident that the big changes he has in mind are the best things Vortex could hope for.

It has been an honour being an Administrator here and getting to know some of you over the years. I just want to thank each and every one of you (spriter to member, not so much leacher and knob head) for being a part of this awesome community and for making DBZ Vortex what it is; the ultimate home of LSW Spriting.

Thank you for taking to time to read this,

Jay Vortex.

Wow ...

This actually made me sad Sad, not even just saying that either man. I don't really know what to say at all ...

Of all the members on this forum you've definitely given me the most chances and really helped me a lot man. You got me into VRP, you got me into the beta testers for exco and then you finally got me into the mods. I literally owe you sooo much for this. I've always viewed you as my mentor man and I probably never made that clear to you, but I genuinely looked up to you so much bro. All the best in your future endeavors and make sure to pop in and visit, cause I love you broseph.

Thank you for Vortex doesn't seem like enough, but that's all I can really say. You've given us this entire forum pretty much, without you I wouldn't know a bunch of my closest friends from here.

You are forever etched in the history of this place.

You will be severely missed.

Love long and prosper, buddy.

Well Jay, I can say I'm sorry to see you go. Thanks for all the help with the Editorial stuff when Angryboy wasn't here, and for everything else you've done for Vortex. I hope to see you around the forum more.

I don't really know what else to say other than hello, and farewell.

@Fortex: The pleasure was all mine mate :)

@Rav: I didn't help you out much but thanks for all your effort with the editorial work, it made Vortex a better place and your determination to get the work done was admirable.

@Masaro: Don't think I've had the pleasure (unless you've changed your name, or I've forgot you if so I'm sorry), but thanks for joining Vortex and our community, without the members it would have just been me and that noob Angryboy sending me sheets. Crosseyehappy

I'll still be around at least as much as I've always been (more I hope) and I hate losing touch with people so I'll be sure to hunt down contact details of some of you if I ever do decide to leave for good. I really like to see where people go and end up in life and if paths cross again etc.

21 gun salute. I thank you from the bottom of my heart Jay, you've given me a place to be and the ability to actually hone in on the things that I wanna focus on in my life. You are a god among peasants, for you have created this world, this Vortex. And for that everyone here is pretty much in eternal debt to you.

Cheers mate

Hey, I don't know you, seeing as I'm still new here and all, but thank you. Thank you for creating Vortex, it's because of you I know these people and because of you why I came to enjoy this place more and more. Thanks.

Lol Jay, your awesome man. I was always looking at that Vegito Scouter thing you had and wondering if you had a custom anyway. Thanks man, I'm not going to say goodbye because you should know better than everyone else that you will come back.

So thanks for everything you did and still are doing that we don't know about.
