Welp, this seems like as good a time as any other. Here it goes. I'd like to request demotion for the following reasons:

  1. Time. I'm just not here much any more. And the time that I'm here, I'd rather be dealing with anyrhing else than sysop stuff.
  2. Interest. I started editing the wiki because I found the game for the most part pretty boring and it gave me something extra to do. That soon led to an eventual promotion and that was pretty cool. I'm now less bored with the game since I found a good group which keeps me pretty busy. I'll probably still feel the need for some wiki crack from time to time, but mostly the sysop stuff just doesn't interest me much any more.
  3. Sanity. After repeatedyly asking myself why I kept researching case precedents or othere mundane tasks and wasn't able to give myeslf a proper answer, yet continued to do it, I began to question my sanity. I'd like to stay sane. Staying sane would be good.

My only request is that I'd like to be demoted on the same day as Misanthropy, which I suspect will be any day now. Mis talked me into this gig and opened my promo bid. I think it only fitting we go at the same time. If by some chance he's kept, just do it on the day of the crat decision to keep him. Not too much to ask, I think. Thanks. ~Vsig.png 02:15, 5 April 2012 (UTC)

No, dude, it's okay, I wasn't using that thunder anyway. Grr! Argh! *shaking fist* Nothing to be done! 03:03, 5 April 2012 (BST)
What's a little thunder between friends? Seriously, though it was this or bad April fool's joke which wasn't one at all. This is better, no? ~Vsig.png 03:18, 5 April 2012 (UTC)
We'll always have Paris. And a mutual appreciation of 8-bit circles. Nothing to be done! 05:04, 5 April 2012 (BST)
Your contributions have been appreciated, and we need experienced and trusted sysops at this stage. But if you are sure you need to remove yourself, then yeah, confirm please -- boxy 13:38, 5 April 2012 (BST)
Yep, I'm sure. Its something I've been mulling over for a bit of time. I won't be doing anything with the buttons and will avoid drama sections for a good long while. I'll still post my opinion on important stuff if asked and if its needed but won't actively pursue any of it. ~Vsig.png 21:25, 5 April 2012 (UTC)

Demoted. I look forward to your nomination of future successors. or DDR. --Rosslessness 10:09, 12 April 2012 (BST)

Muchos gracias. It was a pleasure and I had fun but the time had come to move on. As for future sucessors, I'll be on the lookout. If anyone needs some coaching, I don't mind weighing in. Get you some DDR and Aichon and you probably won't need anything else but don't be afraid to promote some fresh blood. Burn outs happen and if you're not careful, you might find a wiki run only by Rev. ~Vsig.png 00:30, 13 April 2012 (UTC)
You guys think way too highly of DDR, his behavior has never deserved that, he's Cyberbob with a desire to please. --Karekmaps 2.0?! 05:43, 13 April 2012 (BST)
I most certainly am. DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION (TALK | CONTRIBS) 09:47, 13 April 2012 (BST)
Jaloezie is een slechte raadgever. -- Cat Pic.png Thadeous Oakley Talk 10:55, 13 April 2012 (BST)
If that happens, it'll be because I slept through Misconbitragnarok. And then I'll miss all you guys. Sad ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 08:15, 16 April 2012 (BST)

Sad to see you go. In many ways, and I hope you don't take this as an insult, I saw you as someone to take my place on the team, in terms of the types of thinking and opinions I saw from you. Kudos to you for lasting as long as you did. Aichon 14:43, 13 April 2012 (BST)

I did too, as I think I said when we promoted him. So it's a shame to see you go but it's good you didn't overstay when you knew it was time, also. DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION (TALK | CONTRIBS) 14:50, 13 April 2012 (BST)

Nooooooooooooooo! He was supposed to be the chosen one!
Eh, I get it, Vaps. The candle that burns twice as bright, et cetera… It's been good to serve alongside you, and I hope you still pop your head in from time to time (like some other people I know Shifty >_> <_<). Kudos. Enjoy the free time. ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 08:15, 16 April 2012 (BST)

Yeah I'm still around. Just won't be involved with sysop stuff. I'm actually working on a project that I could probably use you help with at some point. I need some geezers to fill in some gaps in the UD histroy. ~Vsig.png 15:15, 16 April 2012 (UTC)
I'm a geezer now? Fuck. ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 07:25, 18 April 2012 (BST)
Apparently spending half a decade here has that effect on some of us. --Karekmaps 2.0?! 12:35, 18 April 2012 (BST)
Even I am a few months away from 5 years. What the hell. DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION (TALK | CONTRIBS) 02:42, 20 April 2012 (BST)
I've been tracking my time here since day one, so my over five years isn't surprising at all. (I don't know what I intend with this comment, I just want to be included.) --  AHLGTG THE END IS NIGH! 02:47, 20 April 2012 (BST)
ahh mmmm dito?-- HEY! HANDS OFF MAH BOOBS!   bitch   COBRA!   אמת 03:02, 20 April 2012
What does a comment thread full of old as fuck UD players smell like? ~Vsig.png 03:05, 20 April 2012 (UTC)

Fun fact. Normal users can't archive demotions. Who knew?--Shortround }.{ My Contributions 11:32, 1 May 2012 (BST)

We did. Fun fact: Only the crats did it before Link did it as a sysop, after that the sysops just started doing it. DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION (TALK | CONTRIBS) 11:57, 1 May 2012 (BST)
If I'm honest I was just trying to goad somebody with the power in to doing it, but... --Shortround }.{ My Contributions 12:34, 3 May 2012 (BST)
