Marc's Burnt Out...

Well....this is probably the hardest thing ive ever had to type......

Im stepping down as an admin and im gonna just retain my Prem. membership/tech usergroups. Im just finalizing what all needs to be taken care of with this move. I suppose there is the possibility of me returning to the site staff but i honestly dont know what will happen. I hope this brings the "fun" back into the ORG for me and makes this a place i can actually enjoy hangin out on again....

Ive been stressing about what the inital reaction would be....particularly from those that are worried about the new ownership of the ORG. I want to stress that this is for stricktly personal reasons and almost everything causing me to make this decision happened before the sale of the ORG happened. Basically the ORG has lost its "fun" for me in the capacity im in now. Its a job....i feel obligated to log in and i dont have a good time online anymore. I dont have the time to post like i would like to......i dont know poeples names....i dont even recognize some users who are over the 1000 posts. That on top of the stress level im at right now i just cant go on being an admin.... It is entirerly for personal reasons.....

Marc although i didn't see this coming (shocked) you have to do what makes you happy. Stress is no fun and you probably had a ton of it running this site. I met you for the first time at the 07' SSS and saw that you were down to earth and liked to have fun. Hopefully by making this hard decision to step down your joy of being on this site will return and you'll have fun hangin out with all of us diesel nuts. I support you 100% and am looking forward to seeing you in March for the Pismo GTG.
