I am posting this for Emil because he is not able to copy and paste content to JR at the moment so he has asked me to make this announcement for him.
This will be the last "major" post that i will do in a while.
I have decided to step down as an admin on JR Network, there
is multiple reasons for this decision, but i will only name
some of them.
1) Being an admin on JR have been a fun task for me, i have
been playing on JR for around 1 year, and been an admin for
around the last 6 months. But being an admin really affects
how you play the game. You remember all the fun you got all
day long where you can just do whatever you wish? I don't.
Being an admin gives _lots_ of work for you to do, all the
time, if not in game where you get questions every 2min, but
also on skype and so on. Everywhere you go there is a kid
screaming "Please help me!". I did enjoy that in the beginning,
but after so long where you are not able to enjoy the game
the way you used to, it begins to annoy you.
2) Being "flamed" for being off minecraft and not helping out
As many of you might have noticed, i have not been on minecraft
more than a couple of hours the last month. Why? Because
i need a break from the game. I have played minecraft
for a whole year, 5-10 hours EVERY day, sometimes even more.
Yes you may call me a no-lifer or whatever you want, i don't
really care. I just need a break.. I lose all inspiration for
minecraft, when i go on, the first thing i do is think "What
should i do".. And i do that all the time im online. i use
99% of my online time just answering questions from players.
And now that i finally went off minecraft for some time, i
got flamed for not helping out the community.
"I'm just rather pissed off at staff members just going for
weeks on end not even coming in checking up to help me out..."
Thats one of the messages i got, and i got many more of those.
I have been on the server and helping out EVERY day for 6
months straight! And then i go offline for 2 weeks and
get messages like this? Seriously.. That crosses the line.
So yeah, as you can see, im stepping down as an admin.
But just so you all know, that i step down from admin
does not mean that i leave JR. I will still get on and say
hi to all of you etc, and begin to _play on JR_ again when i
get some more inspiration.
I do this to relax. Im tired of not having time to relax while
i play, that is what playing is about.. isn't it?
