Passing the DC helm on
At the end of this month, I will be stepping down as DC. After many discussions with my Admin team, especially Obsi and Henri, I think now is the appropriate time to pass the DC helm onto someone new.
The two plus years I have been involved in administrating this division as either a sysadmin, Vice Captain or Captain have been great. There have been many stressful moments but there have also be many great ones. I have fond memories of the TOGlympics and the creation of Piedra Roja on Frontier. I remember the excitement of everyone in Jan 2011 when we started the first Survival server on a small sand island with skeletons attacking from one beach and zombies approaching from behind.
The Division has gone through many changes. The constant developments of Minecraft and unofficial mods are continually forcing the Division to make decisions. The arrival of the FTB was a big change that the traditional structure of the Division could not accommodate adequately. Hopefully now, with the new looser structure pretty much set up, any new DC will be able to better mold the Division. After all, the official Minecraft API is on the horizon and I am sure there will be many other challenges in the future.
Thank you to all my Admin team who have helped guide me when I had to make the hard choices. Thank you for the time you spent helping run the servers, whether moderating or working the software behind the scenes. I could have not DCed without you.
So as I prepare to lay the DC helm down for another to wear, I must also thank you, the players, for showing me the many wonderful ways that Minecraft can be enjoyed. Your works, be they creative or technical, have always impressed me. Keep on recording your projects in the Miners' Gallery and let others know what great people we have in this Division and in TOG.
Thank you all,
