It's time. My goodbye


Jamie

Yeah, shocker and if you clicked readmore I'm guessing your wanting to know more.

So why am I leaving?

JR has been great yes, but in another aspect view It has been the worst time of my life. Since I started JR in school, when I was 13 I worked on JR constantly till now. It ruined my education, a good relationship with my parents and it's getting in the way of something more meaningful to me. I'm tired, I'm constantly upset and I have had no time because what ever I do, JR was always there needing my assistance.

I have been sucked in to the deep end and it's been so hard to get out of the internet is great, but when you work on it for most of your teenage life after your teenage life is over you finally realize that damn, I have missed so damn much.

What's going to happen to JR?

Even though I started JR, I'm not shutting it down, all JR related services will be left open and they will be handled by the staff team that I have built. We have already talked in the staff meeting and yes while the staff did get slightly shocked, and possibly teary I believe that they will come out of my shadow and show JR what a staff team really is.

A couple of heart felt mentions:

Kevin: You mate have helped make JR what it is today, JR was originally going to be about everything while you gave me the idea to build something different a better gaming and technology community. I believe with all the goals, plans and ideas we had together. This was the main one and we did it dude. I'd like to say sorry to you as well because in time JR got in the way of our friendship and it got in the way of your life, especially when I came to yours for a little fun at times, it turned termoil and hell broke loose on JR

Ruppi & Peter:

I really didn't know who to choose first but since you were promoted to moderator, admin and founder at the same time I believe it's gotta be done this way. JR was made yours as much as I made it mine, you helped me grow, expand and get this community to flourish. It's been a blast and I'm sorry we really haven't socialized since we met. We have never really had one serious conversation about our lives and all it's been is stuff with JR.

Thank you for sticking with me for so long, you made things really happen.

Leslee & Robert:

Leslee You of all people have kept me sane, been a mother to me per say and kept me from the verge of insanity, you helped me beat my depression, you helped me fund what JR is today. Without you of all people I would not have been able to keep running JR for this long. I know your going to try to talk me out of this, but please respect that I need to get my life back. Thank you for helping me in keeping what little of my life I have left. I hope you will be able to understand even though I know you most of all will be the mos upset why I have to do this.

Robert: you wanted a friendly server to play on, because you felt it was too hard to run one, I'm glad I was there to provide that for you and your family, thanks for been a hardworking admin when your job allowed.

Calystos:

You mate have been brilliant, while I didn't want to let you down and leave I have to mate. Thank you for been there when I first started, for helping us evolve with all our gaming servers and for keeping us online when I needed someone way past my expertise, I just hope you can help JR still and I hope you enjoy it

Joe, Ryan, Joesph, Tim and Evonne

It wouldn't be fair if I singled you guys out, you all worked insanely hard for me, you made me proud to say that you worked on my admin team.

Damian Scheck:

No I didn't forget you mate, You helped create JR when we started too, even though you had college and not enough time eventually for JR, it's worth noting I'm glad I helped you learn english as I remember you came to JR to learn and I know your pretty decent at talking english now

Callum & Abby:

JR always was my dream to bring people together, but I never thought that in a million years I could start a relationship from two seperate people in two different countries. It's amazing to me that I brought you two together, I hope that for me, you won't have any issues in your relationship and thanks to both of you for working on JR so hard.

Moderators & Helpers:

To date you guys have had one of the most important and influential roles on JR, you have moderated, kept cool heads and while yes at times we all had our disagreements. Thank you for helping me out at JR.

MCBlock.IT & Planet Minecraft Team:

While JR has been a part of my life, you guys also came in to the field too tied with JR, I'm sorry to say that I'm also taking leave of my responsibilities at the two sites and thank you guys for giving me a chance to contribute to the projects.

Guys, don't ever blame yourselves for me leaving, this was not sparked off from anyone but me. It's hard to stop something like this but it's time I took my leave and that I have the time to get my entire life back on track

For the people who said JR died it hasn't its more alive than ever, for the people who said it will die, it won't it'll keep running I'm sure.

Will I return ever?

I can't say, simple It's too hard to guess but in my view in passing yes but as in getting back on the team, no. I'm sorry but it was going to come to this sometime, My life or JR.

For all the members that joined JR, payed donations, kept JR fun thank you. I appreciate it and I hope that you too will understand why.

Jamie, I must say that you are the most well loved of all of the JR Members. And there is a good reason. No one can deny that you have worked beyond description for JR, and that no one cares about it more. Regardless, I feel that your decision is wise, and that real life counts in the end far more than virtual life. But you will by no means be forgotten. Your legacy of kindness, as well as epic hard work will last JR a long time.

Even though it is the right decision to leave, given the circumstaces, I will miss you, as will everyone else. I will never forget that you stopped your most urgent work to answer my unending questions, without even hinting that it was a bother, and that it was holding you up.

JR would never be like it is now if you had not started it and kept with it for this long.

Have a long and successful rest of your life, knowing that you can consentrate on the things that count. We will miss you!

Jamie... I remember the very day I joined this amazing server. I went right to creative, made my own secret trap-filled home and everything. I also met a helper and a Grief Police who annoyed me so. (You know who you are guys) I remember the day Creative was reset, my first kill in Hardcore, my 2nd (or was it 3rd) place victory in the creative sculpture contest, me and my sand worm <3. I remember the day when I won my first Hunt, that beautiful 2500 Jrcash... I remember the spawn contest where we had to find the switches, I got down first, but then I realized I had to email a code... My old PC was too ******* slow to be able to send the email... Would have won, too... I remember the day that the Server store closed, now using the /buy and /sell. I remember the day I created my shop in the mall... I remember Qudubz, bullseye, and the day that Car2001 or whatever griefed my house and got it on video... I remember the spammer flooding... I remember JR 2.0 getting released, and I was so excited...

Now I bet your wondering why I'm posting all of this. Well, here's why. If Jamie never created this server, all of this would be nonexistent. All these memories, gone. And who would want that? I speak for all of us when I say...
