    Just give someone competent moderator of the EVE section. If only to delete bot nonsense.

    as i hinted before and i think spasm did too i'm not doing well personally, i have been going trough some rough times personally and emotionally and as it may seem very obvious to some if not most of you i have been slowly but steadily fading away from the community. i wanted to open FHC with the simple goal of keeping what was left of the SHC community alive, i committed myself to try and have as little impact to it as possible while keeping it running but i have failed to do so. yes the forum works, yes it has room to grow but sadly my situation has affected the personal portion of my commitment and to put it bluntly i cant do it anymore.

    you don't have to believe me when i say that i want to keep it running, i really do, but i cant really accept the current situation as full filling the promise i made all of you in the first place which is the reason i am posting this

    i want you guys, the community, to help me find someone who can take charge, someone who can and wants to be involved in the day to day situation of the community. i have no issues whatsoever to keep the site itself running, i think i did a fairly decent job setting it up and mechanically its pretty much self sufstaining. economically speaking thanks to the advertisements it almost pays itself, some of you still have ongoing donations that help cover whatever the ad revenue doesnt cover and even tho its been very rare i have paid for it myself and have no issues with continuing to do so. i am just disappointed in myself for not giving you

    all of this is coming as i can think of it and it comes from my heart, feel free to mock me or insult me or call me whatever you may but i promise you that no matter what i will do my best to keep the show running

    all of you deserved this explanation and hopefully we can figure out a way so we can continue to be

    yours,

    mentally and emotionally i cant deal with people right now, it pains me to say so but that is how i feel and its both embarrassing and upsetting that i have let this go on for so long and for that i'm sorry
    Mate, sorry to hear what you're going through is affecting you this much, but from what I can see you have nothing at all to apologise for here. You've done a lot and asked for nothing in return.

    Take care of yourself and be strong. I feel I know what you're going through and I hope you're getting the help you need, but nobody is going anywhere, everybody will still be here and you can pick up on what you wanted to do and haven't done when you're better. Until then there are lotsa good people around that can fill in and help admining, you focus on yourself and get better <3

    So sorry to hear of your troubles Entrox. I think it's safe to say everyone here appreciates what you did saving the spirit of SHC here at FHC and all you've done to keep it alive.

    If you're really ok with maintaining the existence of teh site (i.e. paying the bills for hosting defrayed by ad rev and donations), I think all we really need is someone assigned as site Admin to manager the place tech-wise and staff-wise going forward, and a few good longtime posters to step up and help moderate, even if it's just to handle bots and the real flagrant stuff.

    I have no doubt you'll find at least one willing Admin here in the community, and many of us have offered and would offer to serve as Moderators to help police the bots and spam and the like.

    I am sure we can keep FHC alive with just a minimum of effort by our community to step up and help. As I've said before, I've modded other much larger forums before, and would happily offer to help Moderate here as "spambot deleter" if needed/desired.

    Best of luck to you Entrox, I hope your problems find positive solutions, and that your life can return to a better place for you. Godspeed.

    Trox, firstly, thank you for everything you've done for this community.

    As most others have mentioned, I wish you well and hope you work through everything in your personal life.


    Since stumbling across SHC whilst looking for Eve info and then tagging along here to FHC (ban '12s) it's been an entertaining, informative, odd and strangely supportive place. I'm sure the necessary peeps to keep FHC ticking along can be found amongst the active 'personalities' here. FWIW, Hels & Spasm probs aren't a bad place to start if they're willing.

    Entrox, thanks for your work throughout the years.

    For many of us FHC is a bedrock, as Sarabando put it. Through FHC I've met some amazing people.

    As you can tell from the serious mental health thread we all go through some really tough times. Getting through that is far more important. As you wrote, the site runs well enough on its own.

    Get better.

    Everything else is secondary.

    Full concur.

    edit: Also, I am totally NOT touched by this thread, OK???

    mentally and emotionally i cant deal with people right now, it pains me to say so but that is how i feel
    I can relate. Your first duty is to yourself and your well-being, not any of us shitposters here.

    Thanks for your honesty.

    I'd recommend Hels and Helgur for global mod.

    Thanks for picking up the baton and running with it when CD did it. I care about his place. I will continue to support financially, and if any technical support is needed, I'd be more than happy to help with that. You can contact me privately if you need my bona fides.

    I feel embarrassed it took me nearly 4 weeks to see this thread. I don't visit this section very often. I very much appreciate you taking up the running of this site after he who shall not be named let it go to hell. FHC is the only site I post on every day and I enjoy it a lot despite all the shitposting. I've also learned a lot from the postings of other FHC'ers.

    If any donations are needed my wallet will be open.

    In no big surprise, Entrox is a top bloke and we all love him. We're always going to be grateful for the work you've done.

    I'm still up for being a Mod (General, or w/e) if whatever powers will be will have me. Whether that means deleting bots, or inducing nostalgia in the populace for the days of Hast.

    Didn't see this fred!!!

    I don't know you that well EntroX, in fact hardly at all. All I can say is I am sorry to hear about your personal situation and I hope you can get through this bad phase in your life.

    FHC is a wonderful community. Simultaneously fucking frustrating and utterly hilarious from post to post and full of actually great people despite our many failings.

    Not offering to be mod because that was laughed at before (and i'm not as active as i was) but I am happy to send money to keep this place going if required. I note you said it wasn't a financial concern but the offer is there.

    EntroX, FHC sine qua non

    C
    "I think we could all do with sitting back a bit and detaching ourselves from the situation to really think about how these issues reflect on our future and how we discuss them here and be a bit less aggressive or defensive because everyone has a complicated set of circumstances that has led the to place importance on particular issues and it doesn't meany any of them is less valid, we just need to look at the broader picture"
