Most of you willl have known me as Elmo, some may be old skool enought to know me before that as groddy.
Anyway the day has come for me to bid farewell to being a supermod at Gamingforums. To be honest with you my departure might come as a bit of a shock to some people. Due to several factors i have decided to make this decision for my time here to come to an end. My life "The Real One" is getting ever increasingly more busy as time goes on as i now am searching for a full time job and am finding what time i have left to spend doing other things. This also includes my online project Awesome Sauce which i think needs some more loving and dedication and i feel now is the right time to give it. Other then that i have also found lack to activity and lack of interest have come in to this place and it just doesnt have the novelty it use to have for me almost 5 years ago when i joined.
I would also like to say at this point that this has no co-insidence with other staff leaving, this is something i personally have been thinking about for a while, it has just been a case of finding the right time to do it.
Id like to leave some parting words for the following people: n0e- Always the forums most old skool member in my eyes, youve been here since i started out and i have great respect for you and the things you do here.
The other red dudes - Thanks for everything over the years, you all do a superb job running the community, i know this place will continue to grow and get better with you people working the way you do.
The Supermods - The most dedicated and hard working people around, thanks for all the laughs weve had, ill miss you guys.
To everyone else although im leaving being staff here i will still try lurk but thanks to each and everyone one of you as with out you this place would not be here.
See you around
...and don't come back!!

Farewell Elmo as i knew you. You were a great Super Mod here on GF and it's always sad to see a staff member leave, especially someone who has been here as long as you, you truly are the real forum's old school. I won't be too upset though because i will see you over at Awesome Sauce which i visit every day.
See you around GF or on Awesome Sauce. :wave:
Cya Alex, and thanks for the help at the other place. I'll see ya around,
Love ya Alex! :P Cya on Awesome Sauce :cya:
I pretend to do stuff.

Seriously though, good luck with AwesomeSauce and your real life. Do drop by once in a while.
I think Mary Poppins is fit.

As i said on msn, good luck in finding your new job, just make sure you get payed what it's worth! And have a fantastic time running Awesome Sauce, i wish you the very best of luck and i will see you there from time to time.
Noooo, Allllllleeeexxxxxcat! :(
Another one of the few people I knew right from the start of my activity on the forums is leaving... :'(
You'll be missed, Alex, but make sure you're still somewhat around... somewhere... :p
Goodbye Alex. I love you.
I'll think fondly of you.
Everyone seems to be leaving now.
I don't think it is coinidental. Maybee if the forums worked half the time more people would on.
Or maybe FF is purging the unloyal members! :)
