Hi everyone,

As of March 1st 2019, I am no longer a part of the Wabbit Survival Staff Team.

Those of you who are active on the discord or the server may have noticed this. However, while we’ve only just finished this transitional period, I resigned way back on New Year’s Eve. I didn’t want to just disappear without notice, which is why I’ve spent the past 2 months helping to ensure everything transitioned smoothly and efficiently.

But I’m not writing this post to talk about that. I’ve written this post as a thank you and goodbye. This server has given me so much that it’d be unfair for me not to give my gratitude before I leave.

So, let’s begin.

I’d like to thank Wabbit and Ben for all of the hard work that they’ve poured into this server over the years. Many players don’t get the chance to see how much they’ve put in, and they both have very thankless jobs in running this server. I’d also like to thank them for giving me the opportunity to be an Admin here on the server.

I’d like to thank Flare for everything he’s given me during my time on the server. He’s been with me for almost every day that I’ve spent as a member of staff here on the server and he’s stuck by my side through thick and thin during all of it; I really couldn’t ask for someone better that I could call my friend.

I’d like to thank Pegasusdream who gave me the chance to join the staff team way back in late 2016. Throughout my time as Guide and Moderator, she was always there for support and gave endless hours of her time to this server which, in a way, forged what my aspirations both as staff and as a person were as well.

I’d like to the thank the people I’ve called friend over the past 3 years, whether or not I still talk to them. You all were wonderous people who created amazing memories with me and shared some of the best experiences in this game with me. I could never thank you all enough for how much you’ve affected and changed me; I wish each and every one of you the best.

I’d like to thank the Wabbit Survival Staff Team who work tirelessly every day for this server. I’ve always looked up to every one of you for the effort you put in to your jobs here and could never express enough gratitude to thank you all for what you’ve given back to this server.

Most importantly, I’d like to thank the amazing community. Whether I’ve interacted with you or not, each and every single one of you have impacted my life greatly just by being a part of the server. Seeing how helpful you all are to one another, seeing how much you all cared for one another, seeing how communities formed, seeing genuine human friendships form all inspired me greatly and changed who I was for the better. Joining the staff team was my way of giving back for everything you’ve given, but even that would never be enough. From the bottom of my heart, I can truly say that I’m thankful to all of you for just being you.

Looking back, these past 3 years on the server have been some of the best I’ve probably had in a while and I don’t think I’ll ever be able to forget them.

Being honest, I never intended to be on the team for the almost two and a half years that I did. I had planned to hang around until the start of Year 11 (About a year as staff) and then focus on my GCSEs but, when the time came, I refused to let it go; it meant too much to me. Now my plan was to take a break during my actual exams but then one thing lead to another and I became Admin the month before.

Unfortunately, over the past year, and especially during the last few months of 2018, I became incredibly burned out from the server, Minecraft, and gaming as a whole. It eventually dawned on me that, no matter how much I didn’t want it to be true, I wasn’t fulfilling what I had to as a member of staff and, more importantly, as an Admin. I thought about it for weeks, even months. I took a bit of a break. In the end, nothing really reignited that flame for me. Due to how things worked out, I would need to take an incredibly long break from my duties to even have a hope at becoming what I used to be. I didn’t like it but my options were limited and I decided that it had gone on long enough and the needs of the server outweighed my own, in this case. Simply put, my absence was not good for the server or the staff team; I wasn't available to help and, when I did, it felt like a chore and I had to force myself to log on. This is why I decided to step down.

I doubt that I’ll never log on again; the server just means too much to me. But don’t expect to see me online any time soon. I’m gonna take a while to step away from Wabbit Survival and from Minecraft. Hopefully, should I return, the flame of passion that once burned strong will be back. Until that day, I can only wish the staff team and the players the best in everything they do.

And, for old time’s sake:

 

It’s been Mai pleasure,

Sir_Mai

P.S Writing both this and my original draft brought back so many memories and thoughts that I really got quite emotional over the whole thing. I’ve been in tears for the past 20 minutes writing this out 😛

It's been Mai pleasure ;)
