» I'm Leaving
No, that's not a typo or a line to mislead you. I am really leaving TvRage. Due to some management disputes that I am not going to discuss, I have decided that this is no longer the place for me, at least for now. Will I return? I honestly don't know. I find it very ironic that I had to make this decision so soon, especially after the 20th was my 1 year anniversary here. But then again I knew it would all end someday anyway. Just didn't think it would end like this. I'd love to run down a list of people I'd like to thank for helping this site out and being friends with, but I just can't think of what to say to who at the moment. I'd like to think that those who know me best know how I feel about them, but then again none of us really know each other. So instead, let's just cover all the bases.

To those who liked me here: Thanks for the support. I wish I could have done more. I'm truly sorry for leaving you like this, but for reasons I can't explain, I had to do this. If you wish to show how much you really wanted me to stay, post a response at the bottom and let the staff know how you feel. My email is at the bottom if you wish to talk.

To those who hated me here: p*** off. You like to spam? You like to game the system? You like to sit on your guides? You like to break every rule you can until steam comes out WiseCrack's ears? Go ahead and do it. Just remember that nothing you do here will make you a bigshot in real life. It just makes you look pathetic in the eyes of people you need attention from, but you'll never meet in person. Enjoy your sad little lives, I'm going to go live mine. Feel free to b***h and moan all you want in response, I won't be here to read it.

To those who don't care: Why are you reading this?

Want to talk to me, email me at my crappy generic email, johnqpublicq AT hotmail DOT com. It was fun while it lasted, but I'm sorry. Keep an eye out on this place over the next few weeks, I think you'll quickly see how much work I really did around here. I don't expect this place to just go to crap overnight, but you're going to see a big difference in the way things are done. And finally, if you have a problem with the way things are run after I'm gone... it's no longer my problem. Go complain to Sebrioth.

I'm really sorry to hear that John. You will be missed. I remember back when I joined that you were very helpful. Good luck though, and I wish you the best. Didn't really expect this, so the truth hasn't really sunk in yet. People will miss you John. -Andrew.

Hell we had many difficulties and debates together, but well if two entities with a strong drive "collide" it's usually that or a similar way... Hell and I know you did much for the site, much contribution and moderating / editing, but also much more. So it's disturbing to see that you made such a drastic decision.

You'll be missed (especially because you stay to your decisions)

Your presence, and your tell it like it is attitude, will be sorely missed from this site. I don't want you to go so I won't say goodbye because I'm hoping against hope that you will be back someday. To me, you're needed on this site. Come back soon, JohnQ.Public!

I did truly trust your input, and I felt I could give you (a great PTB) my personal opinions and concerns on issues, all the way back to TV Tome, until recent events here. I’m sorry this has happened. I’ll just leave it at that.

Personally, I don’t think you should leave. JMHO.

Wow. Wasn't expecting this. I actually thought you'd be the last mod to leave this site.

What's going to happen now? Are they getting a new mod to replace you?

For what it's worth, I think you were one of the best mods any TV site has had so far, and I'm sorry to see you go.

I hope you return for a visit every once and a while.

Take care and good luck.

You were always one hell of an editor and it's sad to see you go. You were a powerful voice for the rights of tvtome editors during the merger with tv.com. Heck, if people like yourself hadn't spoken up, there's a good chance I wouldn't have stayed around long enough for tvrage to come around.

Take it easy.

I'm sure he doesn't hate you. He's just enforcing the rules, and sometimes when doing so, you have to be harsh to get the message across.

Can this be good for this site? I can't see how.

Take care, JQP. You'll do well wherever you go!

Peace,
