To the FPSC Community at large:

It brings me no real pleasure to let you all know that I'll be leaving the Community indefinitely (as the thread's title suggests).

The main reason is simple for me....it's time I stopped spinning my wheels and developed something serious. I've found a partner with the same ambitions, and we're moving in that direction. Both myself and my partner have been disappointed by our partners before; but we feel comfortable with each other enough that we're going to make an honest go of it.

With the precious little time I have away from my job and family; it just isn't viable for me to continue spending considerable amounts of time on this community (and others)...not if I ever want to see the proverbial "light at the end of the tunnel".

So, what does this all mean exactly? To put it simply; I will (after another week or two) no longer be frequenting these forums as an active member. I would appreciate it, if you all forwarded your help requests to any of the other FPSC Mods. I'll still answer emails to me; but the response will probably be slow.

As for the BOTB, and VBOTB; they are both still in effect, and both still viable. As I have not found another Mod with the spare time, I will be continuing to administer these 2 items for the Community; until my replacement has been found. I will NOT be perusing the WIP and Showcase Boards, so requests for entry should be emailed to me...please provide the proper package when emailing me your request for entry. As before; all BOTB entries are automatically entered for that specific year. I'll be checking out the WIP and Showcase Boards for the next week; while I finish up a few things, including the final(ish) incarnation of the FPSC Community Rules and Information Thread. I'll also be doing one final cleaning of threads and posts around here...and moderating as needed.

Does this mean I'm gone forever? No one really knows where the twists and turns of life will lead us (working in a prison was certainly never a dream of mine ). Over the years I've been happy to see many of you grow into outstanding developers and Community Members; it's been my privilege to help foster that. I hope it continues; and I'm sure the other FPSC Mods will see to it, that it does!

I know that "Goodbye Threads" are frowned upon here; but I hope that you'll allow me this one last thing.

-Keith

Good luck, Keith. We joined the same day, so we've both seen FPSC grow and develop, and have seen how far it's come.

Hopefully you're doing something serious with FPSC! And you'll come back to show it off...

Appreciate all the well-wishes guys.

The following sites/people have permission to publish any and all of my work (found on FPS-Files.com) on their respective sites:

- FPS-Free (Xplosys)

- FPS Files (Matt)

- FPS Media (Blackfox)


Only those 3 sites please.

I'm sure Matt would be fine with it; but better ask about including his HUDs found in some of those downloads.

You were strongly my favourite mod. Was it becouse I see you most here at the FPSC sections where I spent the most of my time on computer? Who knows, but I will still remember you. I hope all the best for you! Live your life well, it's the only life you'll get!

...and another great member takes his leave. One who seems irreplaceable.

I'll miss ya man, especially since you've helped me out since day 1.

Luck on you future endeavors!

Maybe I can become a new mod now and punish rule-breakers

Will you be trying to find a new mod to replace you? Or have another mod take up your responsibilities?

This is a shock! (not the desire to develop something serious, but to leave FPSC)

I can understand your position, and I can even relate to the desire to stop spinning wheels and get serious.
My serious project will be a Feature Length Sci-Fi Machinima Movie using v117's lip synch and stuff.
But, of course I haven't started that project yet since v117 isn't out yet.

I guess your new serious project won't be with FPSC if you won't be using the forums, but good luck with it anyway.
It's been a pleasant journey whilst we walked with you, and I hope you fare well on your new path.
Don't forget, when it is no longer fun, we will be here waiting to welcome you back.

Introducing a new Mod to the team is not up to me; it's ultimately up to TGC. If they feel the need to appoint a new Moderator, I assume they will do so.

I am in talks with one Mod right now about taking over BOTB/VBOTB duties.

OK, good. At least your absence won't be a major bullet in our community. Although I'm positive we will all miss you very much. I hope you'll succeed with all your goals while you're gone.

Keith, I haven't been around here long, but have been in a few threads where your comments and insights were useful and appreciated. And from what I can see you've done as a mod, you'll be missed in that position too. May you find inspiration and fulfillment in your projects! And don't be a stranger... you can always stop by or lurk without spending hours! Take care.

But really Keith... you need to make one last ban or slap before you leave... Go out with a bang

Nah, just joking. I can't really spam you with how much we're going to miss you, but good bye, may life take you far

Keith,

I know we never talked much, but I must say it's been a pleasure knowing you.

If I might ask, is there any way you can disclose the nature of the project you're currently working on? Partly because I just wanna know, and partly because the team I put together for the UnrealEngine hasn't been doing much lately and I've, frankly, become bored (If it does happen to concern the UnrealEngine, PLEASE flip me an email if you need any help)

Anyway, best of luck in ALL your future endeavors Keith, wherever they may take you, and I hope you'll remember all of us fondly when you look back. Wherever you go and whatever you choose to do with your life, the FPSC community will always remember you as the person you were.

Best Regards and Best Wishes,
Crusader2
