    lo0ol leaves.

    Ive resigned my position as mentor for SitePoint Forums. There are a multitude of reasons behind this move. Ive expressed myself in my farewell thread in the staff forum, and they know all of the boring details that I wont burden you with.

    It wasnt solely because of the dismissal of Chris Beasley (aspen), but it acted as the final push for me. It was a move that I still cannot fathom the reasons to. I support Chris and hope him the best. As for me, I no longer wish to volunteer my steadily decreasing free time to an organization that I no longer feel devoted to. The environment on these forums has changed since I first accepted my mentorship position. I am grateful for the opportunity and the time I spent as a mentor, but its time for me to move on.

    Im not disappearing completely; Ill still be around posting here and there, albeit with less frequency. Im always a PM away, of course (though my box is going to be pummeled once I lose my mentor PM box privileges), and you can always look into how Im doing at Good-Tutorials.com and my blog at good-tutorials.com/blog.

    Your fellow plain-jane, regular member once more,
    Zach lo0ol Holman

    On the bright side, you get back your little orange pips (I still miss those guys sometimes ).

    You'll be missed on the staff, but I know you'll still be around (you better!). Thanks for the time you gave us as a Mentor on the Community Team (the best one).

    Aw, not good ol' lo0ol! I'd just learned how to spell your name!

    Well, I guess I'll be seeing you in all the familiar places, then. Good luck with everything.

    Good luck with any future plans. Sucks to see you leave that position.

    It's a shame you've stepped down dude. Yet another one bites the dust!

    Make sure you hand around and chip in occassionally - you're community spirit is one the best around SitePoint and without you and Toasty having a bash at each other (so to speak), it will seem boring!

    Take it easy man.

    Your an insperation to us all with the success of good-tutorials and have been generally good hearted and devoted member of SP. In fact now yours is the only blog I read (post more :P)

    Hopefully, eventhough your free time is decreasing (completely understandable) you will still pop by either here or a aspen's forums.

    Hope to photochop you. Er, I mean "see" you around.

    You were actually one of the first people I "noticed" here on SitePoint, probably because you ran a site I had both seen and used before I even knew what SP was. Sorry to see you go, but I'll definately be stopping by your blog to see how you're doing.

    Good luck in the future, and with whatever you might decide to do with it

    Thanks everyone for the warm comments. Though I think this means that I need to update my blog more often. :|

    Oh, I always have time to make fun of other staff. In fact, I could see that being the only thing I do in the future. The future looks bright. (Although there are less drawbacks now: people minded if you drop the banhammer on fellow mentors, not so with regular members.) *scampers away and hides*

    To everyone PMing: sorry. I need to find a way to clear out about 350 PMs since I lost my mentor privileges. If it's important, shoot one to goodness at good-tutorials. Hopefully I'll get it sorted out soon. (Man there is a lot of history in these 2-3 year old PMs....)

    I look so strange not wearing orange....

    Thumbs up

    The members are the forum, forums change directions based on management decisions, change is good for a forum and the administrators in the end determine future direction, not moderators as they come and go!

    I support the administrators here and change!

    You're secretly a SP admin in disguise, aren't you.
