This is pretty important, so put on your pants and pay attention.
I had a hell of a good time during the fountain war. Everything didn't go perfect, but we made an AMAZING showing as an alliance, and we did exactly what I said we would do - fight together until the last ISK leaves the reimbursment wallet, and then go do something else. I apologize for the hiccups (communication inconsistency, mildir swaps, etc), but I hope those of you who were around had as much fun as I did.
Since the war, though, I've let you all down. I haven't been a leader in any way, I haven't been inspiring or been in control. I haven't given enouhg support or provided enough direction.
I certainly haven't give you all what you deserve.
Now, SkierX has been my "second" in many things in EVE over the last three years or so. He's been my training guy, my Dreddit guy, my Test_Free guy, and all sorts of shit. I trust him explicitly, and I believe he knows what he's doing, and I trust him to do the right thing in almost any scenario.
He's offered to relieve me of TEST CEO, and I am allowing it.
Within 24 hours or so he will have full mechanical control of TEST (and Daww once he talks to David Barr). I want you to talk to him for anything you would normally bring to my attention. He's going to be a little green for a while, so go easy on him, please. At least this time we don't have an impending SOV war.
Those of you who have been around a while; thank you immensely for all the support you've given over the past few months. Those of you who are newer, thank you for hitching up to TEST, and I hope we can continue having fun together.
Now yall are not allowed to get rid of me fully. I'm going to retain Schoolyard level access as the new/returning CEO of Dreddit. First two things on the TODO list for the corp are 1) finish purging and b) Start recruiting, so that's basically where I'll start. I look forward to returning to Corp CEO plebe status and playing alongside you all again.
There will be a SOTA/Q&A within the next day or two, watch for announcements. SkierX needs time to talk with existing leadership people first.
Double edit: I'm going to sleep soon so tomorrow I'll start doing things with my penis and a corporation. Herp McDerpinstan is going to help me clean house.
