Well guys, it's been 8 years. 8 years of friends, fun, and plenty of stupid posts. Mostly stupid posts. When Patrick offered me this job as a moderator in 2013, it was one of the most touching gestures made towards me on this site. It was a dream to see the site I spent years wanting to grow to finally be a part of the team to keep the magic in check. Honestly, I couldn't think of any higher honor to be given.

While there have been ups and downs, pulling my hair at spam bots, and general silliness, I kept doing it because I cared about the site. At the end of the day, it was home to myself and many friends grow together. This site led to me becoming an alumni of DTT and TPS, two groups of people that I love. Every person I have had the pleasure of calling a friend has been important to my life and no matter where I end up in this crazy thing called life, these memories have played a deep part in my life.

I know it's taboo to call something an important part of your life and while I have had influences around me, ScrewAttack has been home to so many good memories and times. Meeting every friend at 3 SGCs in a row was an incredible experience, spending Skype calls making stupid jokes and laughing have all made lovely memories, and just knowing so many great people is a humbling experience. And it was thanks to this site.

Finally, I would like to thank some specific people:

-Patrick, thank you for giving me this job. You have always had faith in me and helped me through to make me stand for what I think is right on this site. You may have been gone by now, but I'm glad to have worked with you for 2 years.

-Chad, we bonded through Street Fighter, but most importantly, I want to thank you for being such a great friend. You're one of the most relaxed people I know and you always recognized my work and made me feel appreciated. As a friend, I'm glad that I got to meet you and I want to thank you for being a part of my life. Also, one night at SGC you drunkenly told me, "I love you, man," when I left the room to go to bed. Oh dear.

-the DTT and D2 people- You guys are dummies. And I love you.

-Skype Boiz- We may have moved on from different places, but we are still collectively in this silly place and the times we've spent together have been fantastic. Also, I'm convinced that Luigiman is going to murder me someday.

Finally, I want to thank these forums. Not just for being your crazy selves, but believing in me and letting me try my best to allow everyone to have the best time they could. It's been 8 crazy years and I want to thank you all for being here for me and getting me through great and not so great times. I don't know how my life would have been if I haven't had the pleasure of being with you all.

Thank you so much. I'll miss you all.

-Your beloved moderator

Through its ups and downs, ScrewAttack has blessed me with not just a great community but a great group of friends over the past 4 years. It's something I hope to cherish as well going from here on out 8-)

I'm a bit inebriated right now but honestly this site's been my goddamn life since I registered and even earlier than that. I long for the old days but at the same time everyone I've made friends with during those 7 1/2 years are worth it enough. If the rumors are true and this is goodbye then man it's been an amazing run and I love most of you. Most.

U da bes Ehsan and I wanna kiss you on the forehead.

ps have a Togi Makabe selfie as a parting gift

I read this eulogy, and I ponder-is this the farewell of a veteran moderator...or a send off to prepare for the future events yet to come?
