Hey there. Yeah, it's me, the old guy who can't seem to leave this place. Well, sorry to burst your bubble, but that last part's going to change today. I have decided to leave Mineswine and Minecraft. Other games are simply more fun than Minecraft. School and athletics take up more and more of my now precious time. Most of all, however, I simply don't care anymore. I went through the 1.8 update. I went through SwineForce. I went through Chaos Mode. I went through the back-shooting. (@BossX) I'm finally done. A long time ago, there was a server that didn't really care about being the most professional or mainstream server. That server had a lot of issues that came very far in tearing the fragile community apart. However, that server had its own specialties and features that made the server unique and engaging. That server, as you may have guessed, was Mineswine. The old, fun Mineswine. Nowadays, the staff team have taken a new approach to the server; one that I (and from what I've seen, the community as a whole) have lost the wish to take part in. I appreciate the way that the administration has done what it has done. Regardless, the community has been declining. The server has been and continues to follow suit. I'd like to say a few words about some good friends I've made around these parts. After all, it is somewhat of a tradition. @FireStorm, you have been around for a while. You've seen a lot. Knowing you, you're probably seeing this right now, too. Thank you, sincerely, for being there when times were both rough and smooth. You brought the community, for a little while, back to life. However, you weren't alone... @UmbreWolf, if there's one person who exemplifies "Mineswine", it's you. You're special in your own ways, do basically whatever you want, and get away with just about all of it. You definitely were (and still are) a good comrade. @HERB_YELIAB, you are a minty overlord who came around a little while after I did. Now look at you: the last of the Revive clan. You have been the regional comic for a while, and you're still going strong. Keep on keepin' on. @Darth_Revan__, you hate just about everything. Good on you for it. Everyone needs criticism, even when they stubbornly refuse to take it; luckily, you hand it out on a silver platter. May your server see plenty of good people and fun times. Lastly, @Citysurvivor, you probably aren't here to see this. You left long before I did, and there's no harm in that. I remember when we were the founders of an army of rogues, soldiers, and friends that survived two generations of Mineswine. Sadly, it won't see a third. Best of luck to you, old friend, wherever you are. There are a lot of others I'd love to mention in depth, but I don't exactly have the time to do all of that. (I'd be long dead by the time I'd theoretically finish.) Instead, I'll make a list. @DesertEagle (I can't read) @Valcom (VACUUM) @_JorgePlaysMC_ (Dilly Squad isn't complete without you.) @CorporalBLOBER (The greatest of criticizers.) @JKarateSammy (Never forget the good ol' days.) @ButterWarrior52 (Always been there and done that.) @Fartmaster11 (Always mentioned, he's the supreme old player.) @TheHaloZombie (Those YouTube videos were fun...) @Moderocky (I happen to care about you, but only a little. ) @Austrayan (RIP) @Awesemo (RIP) @nickabob101 (RIP snowmobile...) @Scepting (You can have the 3-D glasses back now.) Well, that's it I guess. Poof.
