My departure from the community

Post by Koolflux »

It was fun for me while it lasted, but I feel it's my time to go.

Many of you may be wondering why I have stopped being active on here like I used to be. Why I have stopped creating content for the community. Well, the time has come for me to reveal why. The reason why I am not as active on here as I used to be is because, over time, I have started to become bored with UT. For much of my time as a member of this community, I was mostly a mapper, and never played the game online. But now I have pretty much quit playing UT altogether because, again, I got bored with it. Another reason is because I have a personal desire to focus on other things in life, like hobbies of mine and whatnot. This was not a choice I wanted to make, but I didn't feel like I had any other choice. To quote a certain Avengers supervillain, the hardest choices require the strongest wills.

In short, I am done with UT for good. There will never be another contribution to the UT community from me. I may come back occasionally to visit, but that's about it. I apologize if I let anybody down with my decision to leave.

You have to do you. Don't feel bad about anything. I wish you great success in your other endeavors.
Life is short. Enjoy it while you have it. I'm sure the community will support you and your decision.

I keep seeing people say this, who disappear for awhile, but eventually come back.

Several times, if you count JackGriffin.

Idk this for sure, but with some of those people, I think they could just be having some trouble deciding whether they're actually done for good or if they want to come back to it.

But as I said in my initial post, it was fun, but it's my time to go. I've deleted UT from my computer, as well as all the content I had made for it and all the unfinished maps I had made that were in my Maps folder. Essentially, I have wiped UT from my computer as well as any evidence it was there. If there's a way to change my account status to show that I have retired, then that's what I wanna do. Putting "retired" as my personal rank might be good enough, though.

Thanks for your support. I hope for success in my other endeavors as well. I know, however, that there will be certain users on this site who will be sad to see me go. And I will miss them.

Thanks. I know there will be people who will miss me, and I will miss them too. It was fun being part of this community.

Yes. That would be cool.

I don't understand the drama-announcement thing, but so many things interfere with the time to do something UT or play any games. Plus it seems that I can't find any new game that excites me these days. It's all fluff and graphics, I want non politically correct awesome stuff, or "violence" yeeehaw.

Well do whatever you will do a good job at it. :rock: (plus you will always remember UT-Unreal game) :D

Okay, I know I said I was done for good, but I've changed my mind, so screw it, I'm coming back.

And in response to your post, Chamberly, I do wanna see what I can do in terms of helping out with v469 sometime.

Ok you are back to normal.

And to make things clear, I was against it to turn you into a retired member because in my understanding is this rank for people who served the community for a very long time and left the community out of different reasons.
