AusBowl Announcement time

Post by Carnivean »

So it is time to say farewell.

I am not going anywhere but something needs to happen here at AusBowl.
Things never work out the way you want. When I moved jobs, things were supposed to be different. I just dont have the time to invest in the running of AusBowl.

So really since about August I have been incredibly slack, for that I apologise.

Over the next few weeks or so I will look for people to nominate others on their ability for the day to day running of the site. They dont have to be technical as such, I am more than happy to continue paying the bills, looking after the upgrades, any plugins they want, etc, etc.
The tough part is going to be finding the right people

Site Admins
Ideally we are going to want to have 3 admins. Keep the nominations flowing, it's your site.

Prize Draw
Maybe my biggest failing. The stuff is still here. I will bring it to CanCon and try to get as much as I can distributed there.

CanCon
This year any money raised will be distributed back through Good Games as prizes for the tournament.
Additionally to this I will be asking for a private vote from people at the Tournament for the AusBowl Star Player.

I will get on to those things first and then take it as it comes.

Once again apologies to you people who rely on this site, I have dropped the ball.

Hopefully the things above correct some of the pain in the last 4-5 months

Just to let you know I have a few people in mind for looking after the forums and what not, and I will approach them at CanCon if they attend.

Hopefully I get some nominations that are in line with me thinking!

Bugger, sometimes life just seems to get in the way. You've helped to grow bloodbowl in Australia through this site so you deserve a rest and some free time.
Well done mate.

Will have to organise some beer and kids time soon.

I'm relativly new here on Ausbowl, but this is a great resource for Bloodbowl in Australia. It usualy takes one person to get an idea of the ground, but more to keep it growing, many hands make light work. You have given a great deal to this little community of ours Cari, and I for one would like to say thank you and don't be so down on yourself RL has a habit of getting the way for all of us.

Pain? The site has run great Carni! If anyone came out saying the site has caused them pain recently they need to chow down on a strong cup of concrete!

Also regarding the Legacy Team raffle at CanCon, who/where should I direct the fundraising to if it's not going to Ausbowl? Go through Good Games as prize support to?

Very sensible decision mate. Well done for calling a spade a spade. And thanks for setting the whole thing up in the first place, we will all be eternally grateful.

Thank you for your efforts (and financial contribution) over the years to AusBowl Carni. If it wasn't for you this place wouldn't exist in the first place. So thank you for that.

Real life gets in the way sometimes, and that sucks. The hard part is often making the decision that you don't have the time to do something any more and giving it up.

I honestly don't think there has been a lot of pain over the last few months though.

I'm happy to remain as a mod, but not so much as an admin

Like Carni, my time for BB and Ausbowl is on the move... It will come back but probably not soon

I for one want to take a moment to thank Carni for all his help and efforts! When BABBL moved here we kicked off a new era (wot with leagues getting their own sub forums) and I'm really proud of how that little idea grew into what we have today. Not a day goes by that I believe this community is so much better that TFF and Carni is to thank!

Good luck to the admins! The good news is that this community is low maintenance!
(Just keep Virral and Sart away from each other seems 90% of what I do as mod!)

Thanks Carni. I know things have been tough to balance. Hopefully this will free up some time for you but, more importantly, stop that nagging feeling of obligation that comes with the territory.

I'd happily help out with something small that requires regular site access as I'm an addict to the site. Perhaps not a site admin roll (it would be like giving a fully loaded water gun to... Well me!!) but happy to help out in some way.

Carni,

Well done on the site, recovering from the "DM Incident" and ensuring that BB has a valid and prosperous place in Australian Cyberspace.

Good luck with all your future endeavours mate.

Thanks for creating this site and it's maintenance Carni, as others have echoed above it's provided me with much enjoyment over the years and is one of the few sites I visit on a regular basis.

I haven't been here long, mate, but this site works better than any other I frequent. I hope the next bunch can do half as well as you tinkering in the background, cause if that happens we'll be set!

...and so, a toast?

TO CARNI !!!
