Friends, Colleagues, Family, but most of all, my Fellow Gamers,
As some of you may know and many of you may not know, the origins of the FileFront Network Site you're looking at started back in early 2000 with SoFFiles.com as the very first network site (see our very first design here!). Since then, we've grown to a network of more than 50 sites covering over 110 games. Along the way, many great things have happened, the greatest one of all being the network sites becoming part of FileFront.
With that said, I have been here for almost a decade (well, really 8 years and 8 months but a decade just sounds so much cooler ;)) and as with all good things, sometimes it's time to move on.
As of this coming monday (labour day, see the following paragraph for the slight irony :D), I will step down as the FileFront Network Manager after 8 years and 8 months! It's been one hell of a ride, a fun ride, but all good things come to an end. Long-time FileFront Forum / GamingForums Manager Jeff "n0e" Mills will step in as the new Network Manager.
The main reason for me moving on is the fact that I'm about to become a daddy! September 22nd is the due date and as you know that's right around the corner. Additionally, I have been blessed with a new opportunity which will fit my future lifestyle. Although my new job does not involve gaming in any way, I will still be playing games, in fact, I haven't played a single game in months due to lack of time, but if you ever see a Pro-Filer in Red Alert 3, Diablo 3, or Starcraft 2, then that would be me :)
I have made many friends and acquaintances over the last 9 years but most of all I have learned a lot and it made me who I am today.
For that, I will always be grateful to "The Internet", FileFront and most of all you, the person reading this.
There are many people to thank so I'm not going to make a long list, instead, I want to say thank you to all FileFront Network Staff and all FileFront.com Staff. Additionally, there have been many great staff members and network admins that have come and gone over the year, you're all still on my mind and I miss you all and thank you for allowing me to work with you. I would like to thank a few people in particular though and they are Chris (our Chief Technical Officer) for putting up with all my tech-woes and requests), Jon for being a great Supervisor, and Ronnie for absolutely being the hardest-working Network Admin/Staffer I have seen in the past 9 years.
So Thank You All; Live Hard, Love Life, Respect Family, and Game On.
- Pro-Filer Out
