An important announcement
« on: March 31, 2014, 11:24:42 pm »
Well, I suppose it's true when they say nothing lasts forever. In December of 2010, I joined a team of like-minded people that essentially changed my life. I learned many things, and over time, I grew from the newbie of the team to the head of the support team.

I've been behind many things, particularly during the hard times we had when our network was plagued with multitudes of spam forums. I dedicated countless hours behind-the-scenes to remove spam forums and check to ensure we only had legitimate forums online.

So, three years later, here we are. A fresh new start in our eighth year- we saw a new owner, new team operation, and the release of the incredible SMFNew 2. It has been truly glorious being a part of this incredible service and great team, but sadly, my time with you all has come to an end.

As I go forward into my career, I need to dedicate a lot more time towards studies and jobs that I make a living off of. I'd love to stick around, but I really don't want to see our famously-efficient support team be bogged down by a never-present leader. So with a heavy heart, I decided it would be best for all of us if I parted ways with the team.

I wish everyone well, and I'd like to thank Matt (for giving thisspiral fool a chance), Alex (for putting up with my foolishness), Todd (for helping me advance my career by working in a more professional manner), and now the new owner for letting me work to help make SMFNew 2 become truly great. I'd also like to thank Trax for years of camaraderie, Billy for being a great support apprentice, and now Ollie (Ninja111), for helping bring the dream of a renewed SMFNew to the world. I'm going to miss the times I spent with all of you.

And last, but not least, I want to thank our wonderful community for being there for us, and myself personally, over the years. Without you, none of this would have been possible!

Sincerely,
-Jacob




PS- Stay alert, people.

Just so everyone knows, this was an April Fool's joke. (Hinted at it in the thanks- "giving this spiral fool a chance", 'spiral fool' being an anagram of April Fool's, and I also said "putting up with my foolishness")

For those who like me, I'm here to stay. For those who don't.. well, let's just say you'll have to deal with me for a while longer. ;)
