Thanks for everything

Recommended Posts

Thank you for everything you have done over the years Bamf. Through the ups and down, through compliments and insults, you stuck it out and got us to this point. Thank you.

Almost 5 years ago I purchased Arma 3 at the urging of a friend to play something called Altis Life.  My friend said I had to play on a server called the Asylum - so I bought the game on steam and we all got on S1.  That night I ended up with a Katiba trying to rob people processing cocaine.  I ended up getting killed by a guy named DanteSleepy, but I was hooked.  

Through the months that followed I ended up in a little gang named Innovative, then as an Admin, a Captain in the APD, Community Manager, Developer, and finally an owner of the community.  I've enjoyed the years here, but it is finally time for me to move on.  No doubt you've seen the news already that @BaDaBiNg_10-8 and @Clint Beastwood have purchased Gaming Asylum from @Paratus and me.  They have some ideas that I think the community will be happy about, and are bringing in a great developer to help anchor that team in @Jesse.  

I'd like to thank all the admins, mods, developers, contributors, and support people who have helped (and continue to) the community over the years.  Without a dedicated group of people to keep this place running it would no doubt fall apart. 

I'd also like to thank the community for sticking with us through the good times and the bad.  It's not lost on me that three years ago tonight Gnashes and I were finishing trying to get all the data pulled back into the database after we lost the database server.  The community stuck through that with us, and I'm really thankful that you did.  

Thanks for all the memories.

Bamf....The amount of time and dedication you put into this community is astounding. If anyone deserves to retire, its you. Could always count on you when something needed to happen, whether it was when we were in Innovative, as an admin, a CM or even as the owner.

Admin-wise, when you joined the team, and then introduced us to splunk, that was a gamechanger that not only helped us do our jobs 100x more efficiently. Having been an Admin pre-Splunk, there is not many who understand how much having that improved our lives and jobs.

 

Thank you for everything you did for this awesome, and "sometimes" ungrateful community. I'm sure you had the urge to just up and leave many times, as most of us have had or done.

Good luck with your future endeavors and farewell. Despite all the strife and hard times that have befallen on this community, you've stuck it out and gave it your all. While I've moved away from this community, this was, and still is a place that I devoted hundreds, almost a thousand hours into. Once again, good luck and goodbye and thank you for everything! <3

Bamf, without you—and the staggering amount of time and energy you've expended on this community—Asylum would not have survived. It probably would have died within six months of Identity's announcement. People probably aren't fully aware of just how much you've given, sacrificed, and endured over the years, but having seen it up close, I can't thank you enough for all of your Sisyphean toiling on our behalf. You persevered in the face of overwhelming negativity, frustrating internal forces, capricious BIS policies, and so much more, but you always seemed to press on simply because you loved the game. 

You've left an indelible mark on this community and everybody who has been a part of it owes you a debt of gratitude. Thank you for all you've done. All the best.
