I thought I had the respect of many of the players to contribute since I had shown that commitment and demonstration of fairness and logic while also keeping the game's best interest in mind. Simply because I did not publish rankings or manage tournaments had no bearing on my ability to be an effective board member. In fact, the reason why I became respected and was voted into the board was because of my effort. Some of the implications, yes - implications, deflect them all you want, they were in fact implied - are insulting and ultimately immature and unfounded. For those veterans who have defended me - thank you. And perhaps the criticism is rightfully so, for people who come to the game anew, there is no recollection of how I used to be - only how I was. For those who criticize, no one knows what the Board does behind the scenes and hopefully the new board member Frederik. and whoever shall replace me will be able to help improve the game.
Good luck to all.
we can only thank you for what you've done for the game. some of the personal attacks on you have been totally ridiculous and those of us who have been around for a while know exactly what you've done and in exactly the spirit in which you have played the game, and it is exceptionally sad to be losing you.
