Retiring from modding

Hi all,

 

I thought I'd give a quick update as to what's happening with me.

 

I turned 24 yesterday! I never thought I'd make it to my mid-20s, and the RO forums are a big reason why I have.

 

The lead up to my birthday prompted me to reflect on a lot of things, and I've decided that it's time to retire from the mod program. While there have been some awesome moments in my years of modding, my life is now taken up by a lot of 'adulting' - a house, a long term relationship, postgraduate study, and starting a not-for-profit bird sanctuary (we're up to 19 birds now! Smiley Surprised).

 

I'll still be around on the forums until I age out in a year or two, but probably won't be posting as much.

Re: Retiring from modding

Happy birthday for yesterday @lokifish! 🥳

 

I've really appreciated your work as a mod. When I first joined I remember feeling really seen and understood and appreciated when you responded to me which I really needed, and it usually makes me happy when I see you've been active.

 

Very glad and thankful you're still around in your mid 20's, and for everything you've added to RO,  and that you've got so many exciting things happening in your life. I definitely understand the decision to scale back involvement in RO as the rest of your life gets bigger/fuller and your focus needs to go to other things. Glad we'll still see you round a bit ☺️
