After a little over two-and-a-half years, the time has come that I have always tried to not think about, but knew always would – the time to step back and to say goodbye. I have been a part of this site for around five years now total, starting on the forum and working my way up from there. I started out only doing simple voting graphics, and slowly it grew into helping to start the site’s tumblr account and to keep it going, updating it with photos during all but a small handful of events. It then escalated into me becoming a moderator on the forum, and ultimately an administrator. I then started helping Hong out on here, the main page, writing countless updates about candids, news, awards shows, and more. I continued helping with graphics, even designing the forum’s theme a couple of times. Every step has helped me to learn and grow, given me friends that I cannot imagine not having, and has given me a chance to be a part of something incredible. But unfortunately, real life doesn’t stay the same forever, and things change. Some change is for the worst, and some is for the better in the long run. One thing I’ve always tried to keep the same, though, is to say thank you, no matter what life brings, to those who have played any role in me getting to wherever I am.
Firstly, Thank you to you guys, the visitors, for giving me a reason to stick around for so long. You’re the reason we all do this, and the reason so much time and investment goes into the site on Hong’s part. Thank you for your love and attention to this site for almost seven years. Thank you to Taylor for being such an influence on me, and for giving me all that you have through music and being who you are over the years. Last but not least, thank you to Hong for being a friend and for giving me the chance to help out on here. Thank you to the other staff members who had faith in me for so long as well.
This site will always have a special place in my heart, and hurts to say goodbye. I am eternally grateful for the time I had on here. Thank you.
