Thank you for all of the kind wishes everyone. I want to make it clear that I am not going to up and vanish (frankly, I don't think it would be possible for me to do that after sticking around and doing so much over the past several years), but I will hardly be as active as I was in the past. You'll still probably see me posting now and then on the forums.
Also, fuck losing the name color. I'm going to be a slightly different blue to be SUPER COOL or some shit.
Holy shit. Well thats enough to bump me out of inactivity.
Thank you for everything you've done with the site for such a long time. Your work ethic has been astounding for as long as i can remember. Good luck with school.
Oh and you're right, seeing you without the name color is pretty strange haha

Yeah, so what if I haven't shoveled out my signature yet, I'll get to it later.
One of the more retarded of users here, but even my hypocritical self is sad over this.
You did a pretty damn good job over the years and considering what you had to deal with and what you said about your busy irl life I honestly couldn't have respected this decision any more. Good luck in the future, whatever you may end up doing! (And don't forget you can always return! D:)
Well, I guess it will just have to be up to me to take over the SMWCP2 project, but don't worry about it since it will be in good hands.
Lightvayne already took the job though
We are all going to miss him ;_;

I may not seem all that active around here until very, VERY recently, but I've been SMW hacking on and off for a very long time now. It will be... unusual, to not see S.N.N. in this business. Perhaps one day, he'll grace us with a few months of his presence, but in the meantime, we gotta keep moving.
However, I am curious of what will happen to the site. He's always been a great community manager, and whoever happens to take one of his various spots on the forum should really learn from the man.
Him being quite possibly the largest name in SMW hacking, whoever takes over S.N.N. has big shoes to fill.
And no matter what we do, while we will have our N, the man who just left will always be L.
) and you took good care over the forum. I've had some short conversations with you about whatever and I've always had respect for you.
I know that it'll be different on the forum without you being an admin, and I have respect for what you've done and your reasons to semi-leave.
I'm curious to who'll be the next admin.
Location: Montana, USA
Pronouns: he/him or they/them
Aawwww...that's a shame. It seems weird not to have you as an administrator, let alone not around SMW Central (much) anymore. I mean, there was that one time before, and that was weird, too. You've had quite an influence on the userbase here at SMWC in those 5 years. I guess if I still want to contact you about anything, I can do so through e-mail or something. I wish you the best of luck with the future. Neurology-related stuff is pretty cool from my experience; let's all hope you can put your studies to good use.
Of course, real life is always going to take priority over SMWCentral; but like Pac and Smallhacker, you've done more than making your place here. It's always difficult to say goodbye to a community you loved, as much as it is for those whose lives you inspired. I remember when I entered my first level design contest and I started to get to know the community better. As I listened to many of your compositions, it occured to me that your skills began to improve significantly to the point where your original compositions outclasses your ports.
Nonetheless, we will never forget the tireless work you put into maintaining the site while balancing your real life duties. You served a community you loved for many years and you'll still be remembered even if you go inactive. I know you're not leaving for good, but resigning from being the Site Manager can be just as difficult.
Best of luck with the things you do, and remember, you always have a home here at SMWCentral.
-------------------- I no longer have interest in SMW Hacking as I did when I first started several years ago.
A life without someone like S.N.N. is going to be much different, but hopefully we can pull through it. Hopefully he can check in just a little bit, and not completely disappear off the face of the planet, but he has officially moved to the dangerous place called the real world.
I've already said good-bye in the Bar & Grill, but this is a more appropriate place for a more in-depth goodbye. I remember back in the day playing your Kamek's Revenge hack of YI; still the hardest YI hack but one of the best, just like the other YI hacks I've downloaded here. Your skills at both hacking SMW and composing music for it, and composing music in general, are the reasons why you've inspired me to take up composing myself. Although I've been long awaiting the completion of Mario's Keytastrophe, Gimmick, Final Destination, and even Bellum Letale, as a college student myself who has taken breaks from the site as a result I nevertheless understand the circumstances of your leave. I, along with the rest of this site, will miss you very, very much.
Good bye and good luck, So Not Normal.
You hear dice being thrown...
