PostSubject: Taking a step back   Mon 21 May 2018 - 2:09

All,

I am going to be taking a much-needed step back from HSO, starting now.

What this means is that I will be fulfilling my admin duties as far as posting race threads, setting servers and posting results, but that is all. Modding, broadcasting and driving I am done with for now.

Alberto, the Richards and Jonatan have been aware of this decision for a week or so. I am just now making it public.  Simply put, I am exhausted.  My health has deteriorated, my social life practically non-existent, and I cannot stay on this trajectory any longer.  It’s my own fault things got this way; as usual, I take on too much and find it hard to say no.  It’s a tendency we Whites have :smil20:

I will re-assess what I want to do going forward later on; for now, the most important things are my health, being active, enjoying life, and thinking deeply about what I want to do next.  When I have the answers on that last item, I will let you all know.

Keep having fun guys, and try not to take this too seriously.  I will be periodically checking PMs, but don’t expect me to be vocal on the forum for a while.

I know the feeling Jason. Pretty much all past HSO admins went through this. It's impossible for members to understand how much time (and brain time) it takes to make HSO as good as it is. I hope you'll find a balance in your life that allow you to continue to show your talents at HSO.

I thank you for all your hard work :chinois: and think you should not lock this topic so that members can do the same Wink

Un grand merci à toi, Jason, pour tout le travail que tu as effectué au sein de HSO uniquement pour le plaisir de nous tous, simples pilotes. Ces remerciements vont bien sûr à tous les admins HSO.

Comme le dit Guillaume, au vu du nombre d'heures incalculables que les admins dont tu fais partie, Jason, passez à faire d'HSO ce qu'elle, certains propos désobligeants de membres, vis à vis de l'organisation sont proprement inacceptables, à même de décourager les plus fervents bénévoles.

J'ai pris beaucoup de plaisir à rouler pendant toutes ces années, Jason, en espérant de te revoir bientôt sur nos pistes virtuelles comme simple pilote, juste pour ton plaisir... et le nôtre !

Je te souhaite bon vent, profites bien de la vie, et prends soin de ta santé, c'est le plus important !

This is sad to read. But good for you to know when to call it. I haven’t been here the longest of times but I can see you stand for a lot of what HSO is and has become. Personally I hope you come back when your ready, even to just race casually.

Thanks for your effort and dedication, hasn’t gone un miissed. cheers

It's the only right decision Jason. The work you did for HSO was (is) excellent, but don't let it get in the way of real life. Go and enjoy it again. :top:

Well, one has only one life and one health, and sometimes one has to sort out his priorities.


A bit 'Thank you!' for making everything possible! :top:
