Hey Gamers,

I know we had some lulz over the idea of my resignation back on April Fool's Day, but this time it's legitimate and real. No, really, cross my heart, etc..

I wanted you guys to hear it from me personally to avoid any rumors.

As of August 22nd, 2011, I'll be a full-time employee of a different company (not game-related in any way) and will become a part-time employee of Armor Games as a contractor/consultant to help finish up AG3 and help with all of the other stuff I did day to day Monday to Friday. Except now I'll be doing that stuff in the evenings and weekends instead.

Am I still technically working for Armor Games after August 22nd? Yes, I'm still going to be a paid employee, I'll just be paid hourly instead of a salary. Nothing else changes for the foreseeable future, other than I might take longer to answer questions.

For how long? Indefinitely, at Dan's discretion. I've offered to keep helping with software development for as long as they need me and for as long as I'm able.

Will I still have Admin privileges? As far as I know, I'll still be an Admin user. Even if Dan makes the decision to terminate my part-time employment, he can choose to let me keep Admin privileges to help the Moderators in my spare time. Or, if he wants to revoke my Admin access, I can always ask him to keep me on as a Moderator.

Will this delay AG3? Not really. A lot of AG3 is done, and lately I've actually been working more on systems administration, automation, databases, etc.. And the parts of AG3 that are changing due to user feedback will be rolled out over time anyway. However, since I won't be in the office any more, I might be out of the loop on some things happening with AG3, so you guys might need to poke Ron to chat in the AG3 forum about what's being worked on.

Is it bad timing to leave? Yeah, it's bad timing for Armor Games, and I feel bad for leaving the company, but for my family goals and career goals, this was the best timing.

Was there anything going on within the company to prompt this change? Nope. 100% of my reasons were personal or based on family and career goals.

If anyone has any questions, feel free to ask on my profile.

You were a good admin and shall be missed even though you will still be around a bit. Though I wish the word reals in the title would have been reels. It would have gone with your o-fish-al armatar. Still its good to know you have a good oppor-tuna-ty for your career.

Farewell, Cormyn. I know you'll still be around sometimes, but you're one of the best Administrators on this site. Your decision to work for another company, and AG part-time, is probably for the better though. Good luck!

You'll definitely be missed Cormyn, by a lot of AG users, even though you will still be around a somewhat. I wish you the best of luck at your new job.

"The legends tell of a Admin who let no Spammer pass, would not sleep until every troll is silenced, and helped build the mighty AG3. That legendary Admin was known only by Ian Cormyn."

That's the story we tell all the AG3 new members.

This day sucks. First I find out Jani Lane is dead, and now cormyn is resigning.

I've noticed that this community runs so much more smoothly when we have a full-time community manager. Is one of our current admins willing to step up to the challenge?

Actually, cormyn said several months ago that he wasn't the community manager. jroyster22 (or Justin as the admins like to call him) is the community manager.

Funny, I was just thinking about The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
Bye, Cormyn. Good luck at your new job. It'll be weird, not having you around as often.
Don't forget your towel, and DON'T PANIC.
