Smokinwaffle has chosen to retire and since he wanted to write up his own farewell I will leave you with it.
Hey everyone, sadly (as I'm sure you gathered by this thread title), I'm retiring. Not out of want, but out of need.
My life over the past few months has been very busy, new job, new relationship, new commitments and new responsibilities, it's all good fun. Sadly; this leaves me very little time for OCN (or for PC's/Forum use at all, really), and it saddens me that I have to retire so soon, but I believe that it is only fair, as all I'm doing at the moment is wearing a badge, and as nice as it is, if I'm not moderating, then I shouldn't be a moderator.
I'd like to thank everyone who nominated me for the Staff position, and the whole Staff Team for making me feel so welcome. I don't know when I'll be back, but trust me, I will be.
Those of you who know me personally, I'll still be on Steam every so often, as well as MSN and Xfire. I will still be active here on OCN, but mainly to maintain any sales I have active at the time, so I may not reply to PM's instantly, but I'll still be here, albeit less.
I leave you with a quote:
Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer's day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time..
