I don't know how to start this- NFSCars has been a very important hobby, site, interest and part of my life where I had the opportunity to play with cars, convert so many, learn a few things here and there and, even though I've made a lot of enemies over time…I have also made a lot of friends whom I've come to respect.
I have no words to say for the gratitude I have for Sander for having entrusted me with the positions I've had as a staff member and the confidence he had in me for backing my decisions- that's something I am truly thankful for and am lucky to have had such a thoughful and well-mannered guy recognize me as someone of confidence with his site.
I want to thank Mike as well for also having retained me as admin when the changeover took place and for also having the confidence in me to perform my responsibilities accordingly.
Perhaps I've been a bit too stern, a bit too strict but, I have always meant well and have always desired for NFSCars to be a truly friendly place where everyone, regardless of age, creed, background, experience, etc. could find respect and acceptance.
To the rest of you staff members: John, Travis, Koop and Jimmy- you are my friends and I have always appreciated your support in all my matters and I think very highly of each and every one of you- you all posess very good qualities, the ones necessary for the positions you now hold- poistions I have always considered prestigious and have been proud to have had the opportunity to serve.
I do not wish to "give-up" on the site nor the members and all the other friends I've come to make and have had the privelege of having their support, the problem is that I am going thorugh one of the hardest times in my life with some very personal yet extremely difficult issues with which to deal with…and it makes concentration very difficult to cope with.
I hope you call can understand my situation and realize that it is not an easy one to make but, I feel I would do this site and the members a disservice by performing in a sub-par manner and I have always been the first to say that if this condition were ever met….I would be the very first to ask to step down.
Before I step-down, I would like to have John (Beowulf) considered as a replacement for my postiion. John is avery trustworthy and level-headed, easy-going and intellectual young man whom I trust and admire and feel he would perform an excellent job as an administrator.
So, once again….thanks to all for the support and…I really have no more words to say other than thank you to all for having put up with a such a cantankerous pain in the ass for so long :wink2:
Thanks for your time, guys.
Sincerely, your pal,
