A Note Of Little Importance

Posted: August 8, 2007 by Kendricke in Out of Character, Warcry

Before word gets out, this is just a short note to announce that I’ve decided to end my tenure with the Warcry Network.  My editor accepted my resignation and understands my position.  There is no animosity. 

Of course, this leaves me with more time for my family, my guild, and for this site, which was essentially the basic motivation behind the move.

    Whatever keeps you churning out the great writing man 😉 I always like pointing the traffic here.

    Thanks, Cyan.

    I was getting pretty cynical in the business side of fansites. Most of the fansite admins are pretty good folks, but the ones on the larger sites can be very, very petty and cutthroat regarding competition.

    Frankly, I just want to write about the games, share my opinions, and maybe inspire a few changes here and there along the way. I’m not out for traffic or big bucks or any of that. It’s really always been about the love of the games from my perspective.

    By stepping away from a position that requires output and process, I have a bit more freedom to express my ideas and news tidbits without worrying about “the bigger picture” all the time.

    I honestly have nothing bad to say about my time at Caster’s Realm and Warcry, nor anything negative about my admins and editors at both networks. I greatly enjoyed my time at both sites, and the opportunities to meet some of the people in the business were greatly appreciated.

    But I don’t think that I make a very good “site admin”. I’d rather spend my time talking about games from a player’s perspective or (heavens forbid!) actually playing the games, than in reporting on the games from a pretended objective standpoint.
