I was notified that I am being promoted and transferred at my job. Due to this, And a few other reasons, I will be leaving DDO as I will no longer have time to devote to this website. I think this is a great website in theory and there are many great people here. That stated, there are some who certainly take away from the community.

My time here has been mostly good. I will be deactivating at the end of the week.

Sorry to hear. I think you're a genuinely nice guy and should definitely remain a member. If you have a problem with individuals, talk to the moderator. Chances are, you're not the only one complaining.

First off, congrats on the promotion! That's awesome news man, and I'm sure it's well-deserved. You were a great challenge, a fun friend to have here, and I wish you nothing but the best. Do try to find time though, once your settled, because you make this site a better place.

That's great news, but it's unfortunate you're leaving. From what I've read from you, you seem like a well-reasoned person with good sense. I hope my skirmishes with YYW did not contribute to that sense of decline, and apologize if in fact it did.

Best of luck!

Congrats, but... Please don't leave :(
Take a break, get settled into the new job, and come back when you have some more free time. You're a great contributor to the site, and we need more people with attitudes like yours.

If this is really it, though, I wish you the best of luck in life! :D

Thanks Mirza, I appreciate that. Unfortunately those I have had issue with are high profile members, so I doubt much would happen.

You seemed legit and noteworthy, and the presence you brought will be missed.
My work here is, finally, done.

Congrats on the promotion. I may not know the exact reasons why you're deactivating, but the website is still a good source for learning. You should just browse casually and comment when you feel like it, there really is no point in deactivating other than to hide your profile info. If anything the website is still good to be lurked on in your free-time, if your new position allows any.

Thanks, there are a handful of reasons why deactivating will be a better option for me. Not the least of which is I am terrible at moderation haha.

This is a shame, as you're a good member to have at the site. In fact you were the first debater that I noticed when I joined last year...at that point I was mostly unaware of the forums and only took notice of people's debates. Your icon always seemed to strike at the page =)

But anyway, good luck.
