Thanks For Everything

Post by carpe » September 14th 2015 - 4:44 pm

Hi Everybody!
9 years ago some guy named Ralph ( XiNiTHAOUS ) invited me here to moderate the PC games section. What a ride. Over the years I've met many people I'm proud to call "friend" and been part of a community that i really believed in. There's been site wars, internal wars, take down notices, RIAA threats, host issues, down time, and deaths. There's also been a ton of friends, family, fun, and file sharing! At this writing the site has nearly 19000 members, a whopping 505000 posts in nearly 100000 topics, and a shit ton of files from academic books to zoo Tycoon games. I truly feel that together we've done A to Z and everything in between! You may have noticed that I've been a lot less active the last couple years. Well things change in life. I've come to the point where it is time to step aside. I dont feel it's fair for me to keep the head admin rank any longer as i do very little now adays. The times have changed. Most if not all of the industries that used to rip us off soooooo bad to the point where sites like this were a necessity, have changed there business models and the new generations have no interest in file sharing the way we all used to. There was a time when i would have 50-100 links going in ed2k at a time lol. I haven't used eDonkey for 2 years now and barely use torrents :( .

I'm proud of this site and it's members :buds: :cheers: Phantom started many trends that other sites stole, and made it's mark in a community that was at one time flooded with p2p sites. We stood out and persevered. Our once mighty graphics section is a good example. It rocked!

So with all that said i say farewell :hippy: I will try and pop in once in awhile and say hi. I'm going to promote Twue to head admin. Duk, DC, and Psyco are great and will do the site proud I'm sure but Twue and i have been here since almost day one and he's always been a great friend and inspiration. Plus he puffs weed so...... :wee: :wee:

If Twue doesnt want the head admin spot Duk is next in line :cheer:

:wave2:


p.s. If anyone wants to hook up on facebook shoot me a friend request, my real name is Brad Carpenter from Winnipeg, Canada.

Thanks for all the memories :ok:

you're going to disrupt the canadian over representation here. :hippy:
see you around whenever you return.
if you ever come westward, give me a heads up and we can meet for something.
