    Possible Admin Retirement (Important)

    Post by Z-man on Tue Aug 30, 2011 10:40 pm

    Hello EPTC members... and possibly good bye as well.
    Theres no easy of way of saying this so i'll just get right to it; I'm leaving, probably forever... It stings so badly to say this, but from day 1 of the sites development I knew I'd have to do it eventually.
    The reasons for which I'm leaving are personal, and honestly I'm not positive what they are myself. I'll miss all of you beyond belief... I've made some incredible friends here... and we grew eptc from the ground up even when times were tough; it was a learning experience, and journey. With that said I'd like to formaly say farewell to some of the people I've met along the way, in no particular order:

    Stardust: Man we go so far back i cant even remember... without your help star i could of never gotten this site going. Always kind, always courteous, you'd always be the first to help someone when they needed it. Dont ever change my friend, the world needs more people like you.

    CTrainer: It was always fun matching wits with you CT, I'll always remember your interesting mixture of both humor, and yet at times, seriousness. You too always showed a genuine concern for the site, and for that I thank you.

    Ben: You already got my dam goodbye speech Razz

    Josh: The man of 1000 names, and yet regardless of what name you used you always maintained the same character; a friend. My only regret is never being able to find a rock song you havent heard... you win, buddy.

    Mark: Whether it be taking part in covert missions or helping EPTC form its official shop, you always showed dedication to this site and what it stands for. You truely changed my thinking; not everyone from topix is the same, theres some dam good people out there, such as yourself. I'm going to miss you too man, but its time I "turn the page".

    Pieguy: Your sarcastic interjections always added humor to even the most boring or difficult situations, and for that you were almost legendary. Along with that I can still remember the first brawl we ever had... "i was the normal color marth, you were the blue one"... haha... bye pie.

    Shadowangel: Truely one of the more outgoing admins, you consistently came up with solid ideas, such as the site you tube channel, which helped the site expand and grow. I knew once you won the admin election way back when that you'd turn out to be a responsible and cutting edge leader, and I thank you for all your work.

    Anne: I guess this isnt really goodbye for us <3

    Special Mentions:
    -Icefox
    -Random
    -Darkraiclone
    -King Wallace
    -Markiss
    -Max21
    -AmyleeXD
    -TPM
    -Chicky/Flash
    -The Breeder

    I'm very sorry if your name didnt show up on this list... I mainly dedicated the long goodbyes to the active / old members who ive known for a long time and talked to on a regular basis...

    Good Bye Everyone! I will miss you all... but maybe ill be back some day... But still, ShadowAngel has been apointed Head Admin. And if anybody wants to contact me you can email me:

    ryan.zimmerman9@gmail.com

    This is Z-man, signing out salute

    Wow man im pretty shocked on this one...

    But good luck to you going up and beyond. Its always been fun debating with you over things ranging from philosophical ideals to what generation of pokemon was the best (gen 2 of course Razz ). I still remember that gym at the old eptc where i battled it like 20 times and after losing over and over u would even help me out to make me a better battler, and i owe getting better mostly to you. You're one of the toughest competitors, and the nicest guys around, and im sure ull do well out there in the world thumbs up. Its sucks to say goodbye but ya gotta do what you gotta do. Wish you the best, well all miss ya back here.

    well good luck moving on, it would be stupid to stop you from something like this. it was great having you here as an admin and hopefully you can still visit us once in a while. By, Z-Z Sad

    Wow, it's really sad that you're leaving, but I guess it's to be expected after your short break. You'll be missed, and I'll make sure to work as hard as possible for the site from now on!!!

    Man haha....reminiscing time Neutral
    It comes as a shock, but I guess it had to happen at some point
    I remember when i started on topix, you were one of the first people I started talking to and it was something about black sludge . Man, some of my old posts are just plain annoying whenever I reread them.
    And then you joined eptc, all that happened, and you remade the site and did well with it.
    It's been an great few years knowing you, and you've been a ton of help. Good luck with things, and hopefully everything works out if anythings wrong

    As for the main admin, I'm not sure if I'm a good choice....the recent inactivity....

    Wow... Really? That's a huge thing to take on. But I guess I could, or Star and I could both run the site, like CEO's of the site. But if you don't want to Star, I guess I could try.

    Yeah, I was working on bringing more members here by battling yt battlers and asking them to advertise this site. But school is a major asshole and I haven't found anytime to battle, or even be active here. -_-

    I also think that's a reason activity has been going down, cause summer break is over. :'(
