PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT I am resigning as a site admin.

  • Welcome back, Iwaku! While we are still working on the site to get it back into shape, we've come back online so you can get back to doing what you love. Check out this announcement for more details.

Usually aggressive, but can switch to passive if it makes sense for the character/scene.

Fantasy is my #1; I will give almost anything a chance if it has strong fantasy elements. Post apocalyptic, superhero, alternate history, science fantasy, some supernatural, romance, and a few fandoms (especially Game of Thrones) are also likely to catch my eye.

Horror, western, pure slice of life.

Hello Iwaku people. Yep, that thread title and the notice message are both for real.

I'm stepping down from being an admin, effective immediately. I might still have the fancy purple name up until whenever Diana gets around to pulling my permissions, but as far as actually doing admin things goes post this thread and the accompanying notice will be my final acts. Some of you reading this are probably dismayed, some of you are probably thrilled (it's cool, I know I rub some people the wrong way, I don't mind the hate), but most of you are likely confused. I'll explain a bit, but don't expect a full spilling of all the details, because that isn't how I roll.

The shortest version of it is that I've come to the conclusion that I can no longer be a neutral and impartial party in some of the decision making that needs to be done as an admin. I'm not one for sharing much about personal issues, so the explanation for why that's the case is going to be pretty vague and probably unsatisfying. Some shit has happened that has caused me to change some of my opinions on matters related to admin work, and me being a stubborn ass means this is very likely a permanent change. Since it cropped up, it has caused me to act with bias when it comes to some admin things, and that's the opposite of what anyone wants from an admin. It has thus far not caused any real damage to Iwaku, but I'm very certain that it would do so if I stuck around in a position of authority, so I'm just going to remove myself from the situation before that happens.

I've grown to love Iwaku in my time here, and I'm not leaving the site, just the whole staff/admin side of things. That love for the site is exactly why I am willingly relinquishing any power over it. I care more about the site not being torn apart by those who are meant to care for it than I do about having any status or authority or whatever, so I'm tossing power away for the good of the site. Kitti and Astaroth are still around and they're going to take care of administration from now on, and there are no plans to replace me because they should be able to handle the work without much issue. We already talked this over a while ago with Diana, and I waited until now to make the public announcement mainly for the sake of sticking around to help get things settled after the recent site updates. Don't worry about things exploding because Iwaku is short an admin, they're capable of pickup up the slack and our staff members are great, it'll be fine.

I think that covers everything that needed to be covered. The sparse details about my departure are all you're gonna get, so expect probing questions to be met with silence or snark. Any questions about staff and site running stuff moving forward should be directed to Kitti or Astaroth (though you can expect everything to continue as normal as far as the average site user is concerned).

Feel free to use this thread to freak out, express your sorrow, or cheer and burn effigies in my image (at your own risk because site rules and shit). 8D

Oh, what? How unexpected this is! owo

I already said this, but once more good luck and best wishes for the future. It will be strange not to see you as part of the admin team (or the staff team in overall). Your snark will be missed in the staff chats and cases.

Jorick Jorick Question that might be met with snark or silence. Are you going to stay on staff or just going to go down to be a regular member and stepping entirely away from anything regarding the running of Iwaku? ( Including staff)


Never mind, I can't read on five hours of sleep apparently.

You got there, haha. But in case anyone else is confused, I'm gonna be just a regular member, no staff or anything.

Fine doing both! Sometimes I end up aggressive, if no one else is contributing to plot, or if there's one person I feel like is taking over, but if everyone's contributing equally to the pool of ideas, I just let them go ahead and do it.

I'm often fairly passive, but I have no trouble being more aggressive if I know that I won't be stepping on other people's toes or upsetting anyone by doing so.
Favorite Genres
Fantasy and SciFi are the two genres I most enjoy. I absolutely adore Dark Fantasy/Dark SciFi, and I quite enjoy RPs with at least a facet of comedy in them too.
Genre You DON'T Like
Not really into pure Romance (although I don't mind it being present as part of a bigger story). I don't mind sexual content, but I'm not a fan of RPing a sex scene in its entirety.

Sad to see you go, but I think it's to your great credit that you've taken that decision.

I'm up for mostly anything. But I don't really like voodo and lots of magic. Don't get me wrong, I like fantasy and dragons and stuff....just not the magic part. That's weird to me. And no demons.

Sad to see you stepping down, but I'm glad that you're keeping Iwaku's best interests in mind! Best of luck down here with all of us peons ;)
