I have thought long and hard over what I have just done and every angle I approached it from came back and told me it was the right thing to do. For the, hell I don’t know, third or fourth time in two years I have quit my position at gamingforums and set myself to regular member. I have done it before when all I needed was a break. Well, this time I don’t need a break, I could have carried on in my role without any problems. Just plodding along doing the same old shit and reading/writing regurgitated trash talk from kiddies.. That was the thing that finally did it for me; BOREDOM. There is nothing new, there is nothing interesting in gamingforums any more. Therefore I had to walk away from the place before the boredom reduced me to a blubbering mess.
I did have doubts I was concerned that perhaps I would regret my action and want to return. So far, so good. There is no remorse. I visited last night and well, yeah, it is quiet. People are leaving (all the interesting people are) and moving on, and I am just the lastest person to join the exodus. If I had it in my power to fix the problems facing gamingforums (or, to be more precise, and also point to one issue, FFF) I would. But I don’t. The things that people complain about are things out of my hands. I can’t do anything about adverts, about the new look, about the loss of forums and features. It is frustrating because I am used to being able to fix issues when they arise and I can’t do anything about these ones or about the effect they are having on the community.
To prevent this frustration any longer I quit and will now have more time to focus on DT Forums which now have 172 registered members and about 33 active ones. We need more active members, but that will come. People over at FFF know of DT and they will know it is somewhere they can come to escape the bullshit being forced down their throats on FFF.
So yeah, I quit, and if anyone from FFF reads this perhaps you will have a better understanding why.
Adios GF. . .
