Well here we are once again, this post is going to be a fairly large one and I am sure I will miss out on quite a bit when it comes to giving people the shout-outs they deserve.
With this message I will be taking a permanent departure from the Orion community and allow it to be passed down to the newer generation. When I first came to this server it was small, or small in comparison to what it was today. I came as a Roleplayer, purchased my CC within 3 hours of being on the server, and then took on the persona of the Happy Mask Salesman. As time continued on, I decided to apply for T-Mod while being in character, getting the position. Only a month later I had become admin, and then eventually the position I had up until this date. My time on Orion has been one that I have been honored to have, one that allowed me near full control to grow something which would benefit the users of the the server. Anywhere from my complete staff purges, to restructuring the staffs rules and ranks, to changing the servers rules itself are all things I am happy to see still stand to this day.
I have an incredible amount of thanks to many members of this community who have allowed me to enjoy it as much as I could. I will most likely be referencing mostly higher staff members and old community members. Once again if your name is not in here, be offended I don't care I am leaving after this post <3.
@sicko greed Plain and simple, you gave me creative control of the community and server. You placed trust in me, and I know that you would always welcome me back to this community with the highest authority possible for me to have. Though we had disagreed with one another in the past for several things, you were still able to see things from the otherside and come to solutions with me. Whether it was laziness of not wanting to put in the work yourself, or if it was because you really originally trusted me with the position, it doesn't matter. Thank you for the opportunity.
@Slam Van You have always been my trouble child I never truly disown on this server. You above almost all others have pressed headaches on me that are crazy. Though you are still a young adult I have a good amount of hope in. You have grown throughout the years and you are finally on the last path to truly find who you are going to be in the future. Keep busy and don't let yourself fall into anymore slumps, love you kid.
@All Old Higher Staff Sorry you all got demoted. Numbers, Banana, etc. You were all horrible staff who abused, and unlike slam I didn't have much patience for you.
@Network, Though I doubt you will ever come to read this. While you were active on this server we had good and bad times, we butted heads, argued, and disagreed. Though we were able to level with one another very commonly and held a mutual respect for one another that has only grown to this day. From my last conversation with you last month, I am glad your life has made the change it has. You were called to arms to help those you call close, and with that you have only impressed me.
@Cyan You have been around longer than I have, and you are actually still around to fix the mistakes that slam will make from time to time. You have done great things for this server and deserve more credit than you get for a great many things. I wish you luck on the Rust server, but make more room on the forums for the Rust server already -.-.
@Autopilot Goodluck at gamestop. Thanks for making the server, sorry for yelling at you that one time even though you completely deserved it.
Now to more active community members and current staff
@Fyre I could write paragraphs and paragraphs about the time we have spent together on this server, though I won't, don't need to embarrass you that much. Having you become manager on this server was probably the best decision that was made since my placement as the first "manager". You were wavering at first when you started, you had your own troubles while cementing you position on the server, but pushed through. I have watched you grow more than anyother on this server, and for being as young as you are I only have the upmost hope for your future. You still most definitely have a long way to go in some aspects, but as a manager for Orion, you are more than grown for the role. With my departure, you and the other higher-staff will be needed more than ever.
Though I know I have never truly done too much since you have been manager, I know the knowledge that I would always act as a final crutch for when you needed it was something that helped you stay stable. I don't believe you need that from me anymore, you are the one who made the current staff list that we have today, you are the one who updated how I even ran the staff in the past and you do it all differently than I did. I acted as a big bad man who would act with unneeded force, I never got close to my staff, and that was my weakness as a manager. You on the other hand beat me in all bounds there, where I have respect, you have friendships, where I place force, you place options, and where I created a foundation, you have created buildings that lay ontop.
I thank you more than most in coming to Orion Fyre, I truly do. I know that this server will act as a mechanism for your own personal growth and I am thankful that I was given the opportunity in being involved with that. Much love.
@Bong Budget Albino.... Joking of course. You pretty much are Fyre's new balancing mechanism, and really you always were the primary one at that. Though you are no-longer "co-manager" your place on the server should always be there. You never were power hungry, and many times even showed that you didn't want the responsibility, but when Fyre asked you to do it because he really needed help, you accepted. That is commendable in it's own right. Keep Fyre in line and make sure to act as his crutch from now on.
@Soshi Honestly Shoxie, I rarely ever spoke with you. xD. Like I said this is where much of my weakness came from while being on the server, I was just some ominous figure. You have now taken the position Bong was in, just act as a good example for other staff and just like Bong, keep Fyre in check.
@Frank Castle @Hottie Slayer You two.... I almost address you both the same now adays since you both do great in your positions. You both act as great teachers for the new oncoming staff and both have a friendliness that can be addictive. Keep up your hard work on the server. Also Hottie, I have deleted my ammunition you have given me... You are now free....
So my hands are getting tired now, so I am just going to be leaving on this for the staff. I wish you all the best. I have not done a staff purge in sometime and the reason is simple, none of you are bad enough to purge. The staff list that we have now is vast, it is one that I can look at a great deal of you and each of you attribute to one of the better staff teams that I have had in my entire time on Orion. It has nothing to do about the work you have done with sits, though keep taking them you lazy fucks, it's because you all are the new foundation for the growing community.
Remember that you are a team, and remember that the server is meant to be a fun place. That means take breaks when needed, don't burn yourselves out, and most importantly make the server fun for those on it.
Thank you Orion for allowing me to care for you for so long. It has been a pleasure and honor, one of which that has brought me so many great memories.
Much Love and Best Regards,
