Effective 12:00 AM CST I'm retiring from Amiga.org
« on: August 04, 2012, 04:11:57 AM »
Effective 12:00 CST time I'm retiring my post from Amiga.org. My tired old bones just can't keep up with this anymore. I'm not closing the site down but instead giving the site to Bill Panagouleas (Pyromania) as a gift. I hope this in some way makes up for his sadness and hurt over the Aladdin 4D deal. It was not my place to speak out in public about a matter that was discussed with me in private. I hope Deron can find it in his heart to work things out with Bill but if not it's my last wish that my gift of Amiga.org to Bill will restore his joy, enthusiasm and hope for a brighter future for Amiga, MorphOS & AROS. It was his idea to save Amiga.org in the first place, I was but a wallet that allowed it to happen. I hate long goodbyes so will keep this short.

Good luck Bill and enjoy my gift to you, please always keep your members happy. I have learned from my experience here and wish all members, mods and anyone I have missed the best. I have asked that this account be renamed to something else and will no longer post from it. Anyone needing to contact me for some reason can do so via e-mail.

Best wishes

- Tedd

I know things have not been easy for you the past few months with trying to keep everyone and their pet happy. I do think your over reacting but if thats what you feel the so be it. Maybe in a few months you will return and feel that you have had enough of a break from this place to start posting again.

And on goes this comedy theatre. It's a utter disgrace what you have made of A.org - a laughing stock.

I won't question your motives or decisions.

Best of luck in the future, Transition - sincerely.  I get a lot of enjoyment out of A.org, and you've kept the ball rolling for quite some time now, so cheers for that.

@Transition
Good luck for the future and thanks for proving support to the Amiga community.

In life things don't always work out as we would like but its always better to have tried and failed than not to have bother at all, even if it does not always feel that way at the time.

I think everyone just needs to have a chill pill and wait a couple of days before making any rash decisions that affects a community :-)

I thank you for the money you have put into keeping A.org going and think that what you are doing is a magnificent gesture.

Best of luck and I hope you can retain some interest in this hobby of ours.

I actually do not blame him.  I mean, do some of you people actually read the crap you post?!  Or do you enjoy talking crap about people, who are not here to defend themselves, or spreading lies and rumors about other people with absolutely no legal evidence to support any of your claims.  If I was the Admin, many of you would have been kicked out long time ago.  I really do hate gossipers and trouble-makers, they are the worst scum on the earth.  I will not mention any names, because you people know who you are.

Actually i have always felt things on here have always been melodramatic. The best way to solve this is not respond actively and instead just laugh it off  :lol:

I mean, this is a community where lots of people interact. There is bound to be disagreements at some point about something. OK Transition had a minor lapse in sanity - who cares? It happens to the best of us. My point is for all the people threatening to leave this site just because of this - stop be melodramatic.
Even my cat doesn\'t like me.
