Moving on....

When I took the position of Presidential Adviser in 2008, it was to help in a time where tensions within the group were at an all time high. The original plan I had was that once I had finished in that role, I would move on accordingly. I didn't expect to be in that position as long as I did. Since the start of this year though, I have found myself in a position where due to outside commitments I am unable to effectively contribute to SoldierX. Furthermore, I have had to ask myself if my heart was in it right now and the simple answer is that it isn't. With this in mind, I have decided that after 10 years, it's time that I move on for the time being and announce my retirement. As my final act in SX, I am recommending that grey_to_black is granted full membership as he has shown the drive and work ethic required to be an effective part of the group.

At this point, I wish to give a special thanks to RaT, Neotek, Blake, and Azrael for giving me various unique opportunities over the years. I am glad to have worked with you guys.

One thing I should state. For the most part I decided to have some class on my exit, but I do have one thing to say. The one thing that has dragged down the community is dishonesty and with that in mind it is my wish that the community work to have some level of integrity. I know that it seems odd that on this type of site I'm making that statement, but I do feel that the community would benefit from it.
