[marq=right]Why I'm taking a break[/marq]

I've always been a believer in letting everyone know the complete truth. While some may consider this "showing everyone my dirty laundry", I think it's imparative to let everyone know exactly what I'm thinking.

I've felt melancholy lateley regarding developing things for WoW because of a few reasons.

when the server went down from the hacks, my guild copied the latest guildsite to a new server one of the officers set up, taking me out of that loop. Now I can't test things with a real breathing guild.

Another reason is because I don't want to play WoW anymore, and here is why:

In a beligerant drunk (I'm bipolar when I'm drunk) binge, I (in order of what happened)

1. Made a fool of myself
2. Annoyed my guild
3. Was ridiculed for acting the way I did
4. Was muted from ventrilo (server I'm administering)
5. Came back into vent and said things like "you are mean" etc. to fellow guildies whom I respect and have fun with normally.
5. QUIT my guild (been playing with my buddy GM since 2001)
6. Wept afterwards
7. Tried to post an apology on guild forums and found my account was already banned (due to automation of guildsite)

This is my alcohol problem to blame obviously.


The main reason I don't want to develop anything for wow anymore (or at least a good while) is because the passion I had for UU/UA/GuildSite has fizzled out completley with this latest episode, and any work I do now would be shallow. This happened to me before several times. I think it may even be a huge biorythm. The reason this happened this time I don't know yet, or do and dont realize it yet. Once I figure out why I've lost my drive, and make myself better, I will come back and help everyone with the drive I had once again.

My thanks goes out to the warm wowroster community, and I expect only good things for it. Wowroster has earned a permanent spot in my dev "heart".

For old time sake I would like to say: :puke2: :ff: :thumright:
to the devs: :salute: :sad: :thumright:

i am sorry to hear about your guild disowning you like that. well hey good luck in your recovery and I hope it is a quick one. divineretribution.net could always use another hand/hear/eye or two in the development so you have room to play if you want. I am the only Dev for the guild and it gets a bit lonely :P

take care

Oh no ! Who will I bother with my tedious concerns about my site now ?

Being serious : a break from any passion is physiological, and some odd issue could emphasize this need.
I hope you find again a balance.

Find the best from this experience Matt.

Let me say you : part of your passion helped a lot of people to find something good. Now we can help you, continuing the project with our ideas, feedbacks and sometimes regrets.

Damn. You are in this project from the start, I can't imagine it without you.

I'm sorry to hear about the drama. Nothing kills motivation like bad blood.

Recharge, revitalize, see the sun. It's neat outside. :cyclops2:
