Dear DRC Family, I have thoroughly enjoyed being a part of the DRC Staff and a part of your lives. Throughout this time, I have worked to protect the server and keep the peace. I have always tried to do so in as fair a way as possible. Many times trying to see the other side and often times over ruling my original perspective in the attitude of fairness. My every intention has been to create a safe, fun environment for you guys to play and have fun. It was never about the cool things you get on staff. For some, that meant receiving a ban or warning. For others, it meant multiple bans. And for a lot of you, it meant a safer place to play. I am proud to see many come off a ban and become very productive, great players. It is with great consideration that I have decided on February the 15th to step down from the DRC Staff title Moderator and become a player once again. One thing you don't realize when you become staff is how little time you will have to actually 'play' the game. Truth is, I have fallen out of love for Minecraft. My compound and home base is pretty much identical to when I joined staff. Nothing much has changed except I went and started helping others which left no time for the fun part. As a businessman and general old person, I did an evaluation of my time and how much help I was doing for the server and realized that honestly, there wasn't a lot more I could do. The server is in great hands. The moderators here will protect it and help the players. If I didn't have that feeling, I wouldn't be stepping down. What does this mean for you? Well it means that I won't be hogging up a spot on the staff anymore which could mean an opening for someone else. It means the staff average age will be reduced and therefore should have more fun. And to some that really hated me as staff, it means I'm finally gone. I would like to take a second to thank you guys for being so great. I know we didn't always see eye to eye on things. However, for every ticket or problem, there are thousands of great times and people following the rules. Please understand how staff works and don't ask me to unban or fix something. Once I leave staff, I have no influence or power to do anything. If you have any problems just type /ticket and list your problem. Do it all the time. No, I'm just kidding like I always do. Thank you again for the fun times and the friendship. Keep on mining, killing or whatever it is you're doing in the incredible world of DRC.
