Yes, this is truly the last Dae asks. That’s because I’m not going to be any longer on this site. Yup, I’m leaving, and you won’t find me here starting next month.
I didn’t make this decision because there’s something wrong with the site or between the staff and me, in the contrary, I don’t like to go as much as they don’t want me to go. However, this site essentially binds me to the internet, as I have to check every day, multiple times a day for news or have to regulate other content. And I won’t be as active on the internet as I used to. I’m starting university next month, and having picked a difficult course (engineering), I want to devote myself 100% to my studies. I won’t have access to the internet aside from the academic sites for the middle of the week, and I want to give my girlfriend the attention she deserves in the weekends. I hate to go, but this is what’s best for me. Starting next month, I won’t be involved in team decisions at all but will still comment sometimes on the articles. When September 24th comes around and university starts, don’t expect me to see me here regularly. I might, might occasionally comment sometimes, but don’t hope too much for that.
So, this Dae asks isn’t for once about Pokémon, but about me. What did you like in me? What could I do better? Do you hate me for some reason? Be honest, as your suggestion and hate comments are useful for the rest of the team, to see what works and what doesn’t. I’ve put my mark on this site and I’m sure it was deep enough that it’ll still be around when I’m not. Expect Dae asks to return, as it sure will be picked up by another team member, so this won’t be the last time you can answer these questions.
The last part serves as a thank you for the team and the visitors. For the staff: it was a pleasure to working with all of you, and we never really argued. You are all creative and funny people and you’ll be sure to be missed. For the visitors: your corrections and suggestions were surely appreciated, as was your helpfulness towards other, less-informed commenters. Even though some commenters said some harsh words, they turned out to be normal people after all, with valid opinions that show some things from the other side. I will never forget any of you, and I hope you won’t forget me either.
