I apologise for the sudden nature of this, but I am offering my resignation from any official positions at SEN, and I ask that you accept it.
The reasons for my desire to resign are not complicated - I feel that I've had a long and reasonably successful tenure, and I think it's time to move on. Recently I have had less and less time for moderating - and there seems to have been less of a necessity for me to carry out any active work anyway. The days when Kellimus and friends were tearing up the forums are long gone, and people with a stronger work ethic or better relationships with SEN's members, like DTBK and Doodan, have taken up the full responsibility for punishing rulebreakers and investigating suspicious members. My position as GM has become something of a privileged sinecure and there would appear to be little point in me continuing as a member of the site's staff. You're doing a great job without me. I've also become less conservative recently, and I find it difficult to enforce rules which I disagree with.
I would also like to state that I'm not going to pull a Mike and turn up on Maplantis as 'Tau' or anything like that. Despite my support for Open Mapping and OSMap, I am still loyal to SEN and wouldn't carry out what I would consider a betrayal. Besides, I am essentially retiring from the Starcraft scene entirely. I may be back occasionally, but I feel that I have wasted a part of my life on Internet forums and I want to move on. Personal reasons relating to other people, such as my friends and girlfriend, have also come into my decision, but I do not wish to discuss them here.
I'll rest easy in the knowledge that I tried to help out the site while I was here: I attempted to convince people like Kellimus that they were in the wrong and uncover his numerous accounts, but I guess that never worked out. I wrote the mod's code of conduct which I hope Moose found useful when he was writing up v5's rules.
Apart from that, I just tried to moderate fairly.
I hope you won't be too annoyed at the nature of my departure. SEN is a part of my life which I will always remember.
