Okay this took me by surprise so I'm just gonna come out with it: Omni and JCW have made myself and Shellshaka
After the latest drama and John's head getting completely and utterly fried with all the unnecessary drama here, he just had enough. He was bound to leave eventually what with Uni just around the corner for him and there are only so many hours in the day to begin with, but it's a crying shame that the day came a lot sooner as a result of the most recent TIMGUL shitstorm.
There's more I want to say but I'm scared of boring people half to death with all the little details. I said myself that JCW was leaving behind some pretty big shoes to fill, I never thought I would be among those to step into them.
I don't want to say too much while Shaka is still in bed and can't offer any thoughts at the moment but I think it's safe to speak for him by saying say that we will both do our best to live up to the JCW standard because we love this place and its uniqueness. I even sent Shaka a private message on here just in case he had a heart attack or something upon his next login! I really am pretty lost for words, and am anxious to speak with Shaka about this crazy news.
Anyway I'm sincerely flattered for one thing and as I said will do my best to live up to John's high benchmark of quality admin service
as I'm certain Shellshaka will. Still gutted after that farewell post though, it really is a sad day for TIMGUL but let's just see where we go from here.
Well I've rambled on long enough, gonna call it a night now and I'm curious to see what Shaka has to say about all this tomorrow as I'm sure he'll have something to say!
One last thing, I just want to say to John how much I appreciate everything he did for this place. Good luck with Uni and I hope everything falls into place for you and your lady - I can honestly say you deserve it.
This is Neil signing in.
