Good night to you all... [I am leaving]

Recommended Posts

Well, in remorse I must announce my leaving of this forum. As some of you may have realized, my participation in forumly activities has sunken quite low. While I do not wish to leave this forum, and have no absolute quarrel with the frequent visitors of this area, I cannot remain around with a commitment to a life of servitude all payed out to the studies of my educational life. I can gurantee, however, that I will get on at least three to four times a week to check for any private messages and to fullfil my obligations to Rick and his product, but beyond that I cannot assure much more.

As I am sure you are asking, you are probably in wonderance of who is to take my place in particular functions - such as the Large Art of the Week competitions. I do promise you that any loose ends that I may have left are to be tied before I do truly leave. I would never discontinue my work here without the proper replacements and am currently looking for the proper person to takehold of these competitions.

And yes, this does mean that I will no longer offer support for my plugins. Then again, they are a bit to simple minded for them to be completely broken in anyway. I do apologize for terminating my support at such an early point however I may release the source code (if I can find it) for other developer's to work off of.

Until next time, good night to you all.

-Mike

This applies to me, for anyone who might be paying attention to my activity - for the same reasons listed, I, too, will become less active on the forum. School work comes first, my good friends.

(I didn't wanna start a thread, and this is fitting)

Good bye Mike... :AddNoise:

Oh darn. All good things must come to an end. )-:

*two-fingered salute*

Will you still be at Tagflow?

Possibly not. There aren't any announcements in the TagFlow about his departure. And hopefully that won't happen. D;

And so ends the reign of an amazing Paint.net artist, coder and contribution to the forum.

We will miss you :cry:

(EDIT: If its is because of school work, then does that mean you will be back in a few years? :idea:

Goodbye Mike, and good luck.

And so ends the reign of an amazing Paint.net artist, coder and contribution to the forum.

We will miss you :cry:

QFT.

I'd also like to say that i'll also not be very active on this forum as school work is just mounting up, and like Nab said. School comes first.

I don't really know you personally; neither do probably all of the other members here. And yet, we have gotten to know you... in some meager fashion. That a departure like this can touch these other individuals—separated by miles and physical interaction—is an incredible thing.

What a wonderful and woolly place this global web can be.

G'night, Mike.

*Salutations*

From Mike at TagFlow

As I have replied on the Paint.NET forums, my individual study life as well as the developing chaos surrounding daily activity is inhibiting my online work. As such, until I can find a suitable replacement to fullfil my position the site will not have a grand opening. All competitions will be individually announced in each thread and once contact has been made to Topaz Labs, awards will be handed out.

I am sorry to dissapoint those who were so keenly awaiting for this to happen, but unfortunetly I could not make it happen until it became to late for it to mean anything. Until I can become more active, Jyrofizz and Nixon are to be considered the administrative staff and those who should be contacted about site issues (sorry guys for not forwarning). Hopefully they can do a better job with a future grand opening than I was able to.

Until then, I appreciate the support and enthusiasm.

-Mike

Mike We will surly miss you. I hope you have time to come and visit here and there.

*sigh* It's like someone's killing off all the PDN geniuses one by one... Bye, Mike. You've been a great help to me since I registered here more than a year ago now.

Sorry to hear your leaving Mike but I can understand.

However I hate to ask you this but I will have to. As your not going to be around much for both Paint.NET and TagFlow, can I assume that the Gamers-Stuff project you were planing to take on will be also closed or abandoned. I like to know as if it will be and you no longer have the need for the site or IPB forums, then I will take it back and put the IPB forums to use for something else.

I thank you all for your support and hope the amount of greif dessipates over the next few days. However, I am about to log out for the last time. Like I said, I will be around once in a while for PMs, or if you have AIM feel free to talk to me at PDNxMikeR . Later all!

Farewell mike. I might have been one of your closest friends here on the forum. We've gone through a lot man. I will miss your posts dearly. Always willing to talk to you on AIM.

-------------------

I thought this would be appropriate:

Sorry about my absence. Been here off and on. I'll be active asap.
