No moderator is nice, but you are a kind, helpful and willing person and no one can say otherwise.
If you have made this choice it means that you need a bit of tranquility that must be respected, then maybe one day you will return to moderate because the passion is not easily erased.

Like the following ?

It's a sad news but as long as you will still be here in EAB, Moderator or not I think it's not important. You have done a FANTASTIC and AMAZING work as a moderator for all those years. If now you want to retire, it's legitimate and don't have to feel culprit of anything.

Sincerely, Damien THANK YOU for the job done !

PS: Next costume party, I'll ask you to lend me the costume. It'll be a hit!

Sorry to hear that, but I fully understand you decision...
I also quit my Global Moderator "Job" in another, C64 related Forum, for the same reasons.
All the best mate!

Thanks for helping out with the gamedev competition. I appreciated it, at least.

You most definitely ARE one of the good guys, DamienD! All I can type is don't let the minority bog you down. I know it's easier said than done, but by the looks of the replies, you are most assuredly appreciated.

...but hey, whatever.

I don't really care what people think of me these days.

I know who I am and don't need some internet forum to verify
You don't care but i'll say this :
You are a good moderator, sometimes things are not easy to manage and you did your best... If you change your mind, great.
But i understand your choice to be a moderator isn't an easy task and nobody wants to be one all his live. You gave us your best years !!
Thank you.

Sorry to hear from your decision. Although i'm not posting that much i do read quite a lot of posts. I always considered you a really good mod. I liked your attitude. An it isn't your job to make everybody happy but to keep the Forum running. I hope you still stay at EAB.

i have not much done or posted overhere, but you should stay as mod, and keep pissing at those who deserve, dont let the others win, my opinion.

You have done a good job for years my friend, and I totally understand you.

Things (and stuff) should be fun, when it's not, you should do other things (and stuff). Otherwise you feel that your time isn't your time after a while.

This is what happened to me, and I just cut all of it off cold. It seems to have helped (a little), look at me, I've already spent almost 2 hours on EAB tonight! (woow... )

Go have fun! Your time is for you
