Admin/Staff Changes

PostPosted by rich0 » Thu Mar 17, 2011 6:41 pm

Hello good people of the Armbar!

Got to announce some changes, don't panic. I was asked to play drums for a touring band about a week ago and have taken them up on it. It's a good money earner and my dream job. With this new commitment, my two other bands and work, I have very little free time. So unlike some Admins on other boards, I've decided to step down from my Admin position and let someone else who will be more active take my spot. I think it's pretty poor form to have a totally inactive Admin, hence this decision. I talked it over with the other staff here and it seems the most logical step. I'll still contribute financially to the board and I'll post when I can, I just won't be an Admin any more.

The staff have talked it over and Longshot will be taking my spot as Admin. He's the most active member of this board and couldn't be more deserving. A more than suitable replacement, I'm sure you'll all agree. He'll be contributing creatively and financially, just like any other Admin/Owner. Cheers for stepping up, dude.

With this change, ArJay will be taking the other mod spot along side Bando. He had the next most votes in the last mod election and did an excellent job last year. I know this place will be in very good hands for the future.

Don't panic, AFP will continue. Strife will carry on with TNA and WWE, Ben will now take over UFC permanently and Bando will be taking over the tallying/tables/excel parts.

All I've got to say is thanks for making Armbar a reality. It was a big step and all you guys make this place what it is. I'm crap with speeches, so I'll let another person who walked away from the wrestling industry to follow a music career say it for me:

Congrats Shot and Arjay.

Another financial backer? Is this place expensive to run?

It's not THAT expensive, but it's not cheap and spread among more people makes it just a tiny bit easier for everyone involved.

I come back THEN you leave! I see what's going on here Richard.

On a serious note, shitty to see you step down but can't fault you for doing so.

It ends up costing each person around $30. The idea of spreading the cost around is always good but it also means not one person ever really owns the board, making it more community based, which a forum should be.

If the board gets big enough and starts to gain some momentum Zuffa will probably buy it off you for eight figures.

I feel like I should make some sort of a speech. Here goes:

You freaks had it real freakin' easy under the less than iron fist of Rich. We're going to see some changes around here now that I'm in charge. For starters, the streets will run red with the blood of my enemies and every night I will fall asleep to the lamentations of their women.... wait... this isn't my Admin speech... it's my assuming the dictatorship of Libya speech. Well shit. Folks, that's how you botch taking over for Rich on Armbar.

I'm going to do the best I can to not suck at this and make it the best forum posting experience you can have.

I'd like to thank the academy, and also the following people for making all this possible. ILMH, you inspire me to be a worse human being, I mean that in a good way. Danny Glover, you try so hard, but I still can't forgive you for Operation Dumbo Drop, I know, I know, no one wanted you to do anything after Lethal Weapon, but come on man! At least you were pretty good in the first Saw movie. Bando, you make the world go round... if the world were numbers and you managed to break some sort of formula to create your own source of gravity. Last but certainly not least, I dedicate my administration to Ernie Hudson, without whom they would have never escaped from the jungle in Congo. We truly owe you a debt of gratitude. I'm getting emotional here.

I think I'd better wrap this up since at this point I assume everyone is tired of these shenanigans. My goals for 2011 are simple: Fix things and don't break the board. I will do my best to hold up that end of the bargain.

LMAO did nobody catch the Uppercut at the end of Rich0's vid? Awesome. Back on topic, it's sad to see you go man, but on the other hand, if you have to pick between this and your dream job, I'd ban you myself (although I won't, yet). It's been a pleasure to work with you, I'm still, to the day, glad you wanted me on this team for this project and shit, we did have a hell of a good time along the way (especialy with Foxxc and the AF Podcast).
Anyway, thanks for everything mate, hope it all works out for you and who knows, maybe you'll be on MTV one day. ;)

Well Shot, you'd be surprised how hard it is lol.
