See you, space cowboy

Hello.

I'm sorry to say that this isn't a very difficult message to write. The extended version will follow, but the whole post can be pretty much summarized by one fact: I'm leaving.

Now, the extended version.

I've been playing Graal for a number of years now. I've had an OK time, but I found it most fun in the earlier days simply because back then I didn't have as many interests and thing outside of the internet. Alot of my interaction with other people was through the internet. This is not the case, nor has it been for awhile now. Real life calls.

Now, I'll put out the reasons for my quitting:

a) I've been waiting for months for debug access. Never happens.

b) My account expires in 9 days.

c) I was banned from the forums for a month for quite bogus reasons (though I'm sure someone will probably remove this from my list).

d) I pay for my account and work for Graal, and I get banned. I paid for a month of forum access I didn't get to use, and I paid it while working for Graal.

e) As a result of my banishment from the forums, I was unable to perform my PWA duties properly (which was unequivocably frustrating, given the volume of IMs I get and being unable to post anything regarding the cases).

f) I just moved back to Canada, am in a state of depression since I've just left the one right thing that has happened to me (albeit temporarily), and don't want to deal with the pointless, mundane, repetitive drama that regularly calls me. I'm sick of being an unpaid(money's not an issue, but no debug or account or anything), unappreciated, neglected referee.

g) I'm going to college. I can't afford to dish out money to a game I work for and never play for fun. I don't care how few cakes or trips to the movie theater a month a subscription to Graal amounts to; the fact is, I'd rather take my girlfriend to the movies or give her a cake than play Graal. (but let's not encroach too far on to reason i)

h) There seems to be a lack of interest from Stefan/Unixmad on the potential that a certain server (Graal2001) has. That would really be the only server that would interest me in coming back to play, but I'd still be hesitant to return anyway.

i) Undoubtedly the most important out of all of these: I have a girlfriend now. While I was trying to fulfil my duties and be with her (or talk to her) as much as possible for the past year, I would much rather now just hang out with her and forget about Graal and the internet and everything else (due partially to a through h).

So there you have it. See you on the outside.

-VT

Sad to see you go, but I can see your points for leaving.
It's a shame, because you were very motivated as PWA and tried to do everything you could with the limitations of rights, and reminded myself of me when I was 'PWA' only.

Good luck with college/life, and have fun whereever and whatever.

Had you not wished to lose oh so much of your money/time/whatever, you should have considered the consequences prior to breaking the rules.

Just a thought.

Anyway, seeya.
