Thank you guys for wishing me luck and saying good-bye. I appreciate it.
Since I am a bit lazy, I thought I'd just copy what I wrote on my profile page here about resigning:
Hi, I am rogard, and I am RETIRED!
I used to be system admin of subscene.
I was doing this job for 5 years out of passion for good subtitles. Now
it's time to do something else in my life and find myself a new project.
Together with my fellow admins I have achieved a lot here on
subscene for the subtitle community. We helped improve subtitle quality
and valiantly fought against thieves and ignorant people.
back, I can see how far we have come, and I am curious what will happen
in the future. I am confident that there will always be a team of
dedicated and idealistic admins on subscene, and hundreds of
contributors together with hundreds of thousands users. Y'all will do
just fine, and this old and tired wolf can finally retire.
I'll even find some time for my own subtitles again, that would be nice.
Being an admin has kept me from doing it forever. It was a real time
killer, and I don't have that much time at my hands as when I became
admin 5 years ago. And as John McClane put it so eloquently: "I am
getting too old for this."
I did not
resign on a whim, in fact, I have been preparing this step for more
than 2 years by trying to create a strong admin team that could take
over easily. I am sure I did well. :-)
all for being around and for making this such a great place. I had a
lot of fun and I have learned much about myself and other people from
all over the world, coming from totally different cultural, political,
social and gender backgrounds - it has really been a challenge and a
wild ride for me, but I wouldn't want to miss it for the world!
