Moving Day

Post by Crimson » Tue 27.11.2007, 08:32

On Tuesday, December 5th, 2007, MAngband begins a new era.

Finally admitting both to myself and the community that I simply no longer have the time to properly support the game,
I have delegated control and stewardship of it to a much more dedicated team of people, who have already started making
massive advances towards getting us up and running on 1.0 stable, as well as a much more structured development cycle.

I have been honored to have sat in stewardship of the game for these many years, and I deeply appreciate both the trust,
patience, and support I have received from the community at large during this time.

I will, of course, continue to participate in the game, and look forward to talking, and playing with the group.

Sincerely,

Robert L. Seifer

I would like to thank you for the time and effort you have invested in the game and in the community.

When Alex handed over maintainership to you I felt very confident things would be all right, you had the resources and the experience and more importantly you also had the right vision for the game, I never had to worry that we would drift away from what MAngband was intended to be - a Multiplayer Angband variant. And you didn't let me down!

Looking forward to see you in the game and as part of the community for the next 10 years, the first 10 was good :)

What a ride!

I still remember the first time I "talked" to Crimson:

I discovered, not long after I started playing, that there was mention of an IRC channel that used to be going on. So, I rolled over to an efnet server, and joined #mangband. There was just some dude named "kismet" there. I said "hi," and just left my IRC client connected.

Probably four to six weeks later, I suddenly noticed the window flashing. He spoke! "Ah, didn't realize I still had an irc client running." And that was it for another few months :P

I doff my hat to you Crim! It won't be the same without you, but I know youll keep tabs on us. You pulled us to the decade mark, and got us sorted for a decade to come. Excelsior, capitan!

Hey, Crimson, thanks for the time you've put into MAngband over the last few years.  I, like all the other MAngband players, appreciate the work you put into MAngband.

I took a little time out of Mangband, and missed the first seven or eight years of your rule. I'm sure glad you kept your eye on the compass and your hand on the wheel, because when I dropped back by things were still on course! I really like the changes you've put into 1.0 so far, and look forward to seeing what happens as time goes by.

Best regards,

Hey Crimson. Thanks for providing a stable, working game/web/meta-server for us all these years, even through all the relocations and service problems.
