Thread: Thank you for your years of service. [The Dude, 2003-2011]

  1. #1

    Exclamation Thank you for your years of service. [The Dude, 2003-2011]

    It has come to my attention that I've been demoted from Admin status after 8 years of serving on Arlong Park, the website (since it's creation at the hands of AfterShock and EvilGamerX, now known as JSack) and it's forums. True, as of late I've not done much contributing, so I'm fine with my demotion. However, it hurts just a little bit. Mostly because I couldn't leave with a blaze of glory, and most importantly, dignity. I was actually contemplating quitting my post soon and giving it up to someone else anyway, but I wanted to do it with a classy letter of resignation. This is as classy as it's going to get.

    I want to say to the current mods and admins, I'm very proud of what you've turned this forum into. Chaos is at an all-time low, and you only have yourselves to thank for that. I couldn't have worked with (overstatement) a better group of people. The new generation is definitely a better one.

    To all forum members: thanks for supporting us all these years. Especially to those who came to the website even before the forums were instituted. You helped AP become the premiere fansite for One Piece fans. Most importantly, you've helped to make One Piece in the US what it is today.

    To all who read this and wonder: "Who the hell are you?" Well, you're too young.

    I don't think I have anything else to say, but thanks. I'll still be poking around, don't worry.

    Love and kisses,

    The Dude

    Okay guys, that was kinda rude.

    Thanks for whatever you did, whenever you did it

    Please don't fault the staff, they just did their job. I haven't been active in a while, so I can't say that this wasn't coming. Please don't show the staff any disrespect.

    Iam curious..i thought they talked with you and Randy about that.
    But now having a SM-status shouldn`t change much for you, especially when you haven`t done much as an admin here in the past, because you were more engaged with the podcast.
    You will always remain as one of the most famous members here, not just for me,thought.

    There were some lapses in communication, and I feel bad that it happened so awkwardly. :/
    You'll always be welcome here Alex, so please stop by when you can. :)

    To be totally honest, we had a bit of a PM debacle. PM's were written and sent several days ahead of time, but... well... they apparently never went through. Of course, we have to take the blame for that accident. And the entire staff apologizes profusely for that.

    Dude is awesome. Everyone on the staff thinks so. We all wish he had more time to do stuff around here in order to remain on as an admin, but life can catch up to all of us.

    RIP Dude!!

    Hey, thanks for everything you did on the forums Dude. It's a pity I didn't catch you fully on action but what to do? C'est la vie!
    I do hope you'll stick around and don't leave the forums completely, but we'll understand it if you do. Life can get extremely busy at times. Well, it was a pleasure stealing a word from you here and there, fleeting as it was because you are a pretty fun guy!

    Wish you all the best!

    I'm not very good at just saying things out of the blue so here it goes.

    You are awesome Dude and I sincerely hope you still stick around here, or at the very least stop by every once in awhile. Arlong Park would not be the same without you.

    Take care man.

    Is this a funeral?

    Why wasn't I invited?

    You've given me no choice but to crash it.

    Dude wasn't the most active of posters during my time here, but I always enjoyed reading what he had to say, whether it be a short soundbite or something longer. So as opposed to acting like we're burying him, I wish him the best in whatever he goes on to do, and I hope he still sticks around in whatever capacity works for him.

    Take care, Dude and don't be a stranger. I may be a new member, so I didn't get to know you well, but you will be missed. And to send you off:

    Do to this forum everytime someone says "dude" I think of you (that also happens when I play the Disgaea games), you are that awesome.

    Hope you stick around.
