#Announcement - Goodbye Everyone!!! (Gary has left the building)

Holy crap. I had a feeling something was up when I had requested a assignment and went two days with out a denied or accepted assignment. Then I get on to see this thread. This is a total shock to see all you admins just gone like this and I would like some answers as well. I don't know how the site will be the same without all of your help and the things that you have done on here since I have been on here. I am really going to miss all of you and wish you luck on your new endeavors. I am getting teary eyed over here. Makes me wonder what is going to happen with the site. Changes are always good but this change here is just to much of a shock value.

I am wondering the same thing. It seems like they did all this hard work for these changes to take place, and to keep everyone here on the site and in the forums happy, and now they're gone. It just doesn't seem right. I just can't believe it.

What a huge loss for the EF community. But even more so, I'm sorry that you all lost your jobs and incomes! I hope you all quicklly find even better jobs.

Fortunately I'm glad I call you all my friends and am able to stay in contact.

Well, that was unexpected.

To all the admins thank you for all you have done to make this the warm and welcoming place it is. I have learned so much here and have had a great time. That is due in great part to all the work you have done. Thanks so much.

I wish you well in your new career paths.

The walls are crumbling around us. Spend your points now.
The points "revision" was a suicide tactic. We've been left to rot.

Over dramatic, much?

This is not at all the case.

Everything has been so vague. The lack of transparency makes people feel like something is being hidden. When are we going to get real answers...?

Umm...all I can think to say is a big WTF?! This isn't good....can't be good...? I don't understand It makes no sense at all!

I'm sorry something has happened!

Gary — dude, you are AWESOME. I'm so bummed that you aren't going to be working for Eden any longer. I hope you'll still be on the forum?

Even more than that, I hope whatever's next for you turns out to be even more awesome than this has been.

That being said, ...
I wondered the same too about the slideshows and was all worried about that, but now I'm extra worried about what's going to happen to this place? Will new people be brought in? Are they going to be as nice as the ones listed here? I don't mind change...but I don't know....this doesn't seem like a change I will like .

Haha, seems I am totally late to the party. In any case, Hallo!
.....Goodbye?....

To the Eden Community, you guys are absolutely fantastic. I have loved working with you more than you can imagine. You are a fabulous group of amazing pervs who make all of us proud on a daily basis. It's been an absolute pleasure chatting with you on Facebook and Twitter, loading you up with Pinterest contest prizes, and hanging with you all at Porn Club meetings. Those Porn Games were a hoot! I hate to say goodbye, so instead I'll say "Salut!"

To my fellow Eden Co-workers. You guys kick major ass. Keep kicking.
~Love you!

If anybody want's to catch up with me outside of EdenFantasys, you can email me at girlwithfire@hotmail.ca

gorgeous gorgeous
Sorry to see everyone leave, but good luck in whatever you guys get into.

I hope for the best, Gary. It has been a long four and a half years, hasn't it?

So... part of me kind of wants to raise a pitchfork and torch and be like "No Sammi!, No Peace! No Gary, No Peace!" And so on for every admin leaving us.

When I commented on the thread Stormy posted I didn't quite get the feel I'm getting on this one. Part of me wants to be here for the changes and what not, but part of my loyalty to Eden was also because you guys were awesome. Your absences make me mad at upper management or whomever is responsible. I don't like when the little guy gets screwed for a bigger plan. So I don't know what I'm feeling at this point.

I feel that this is setting a tone I don't like. Things feel foreboding. If the people behind the admins leaving is bringing in new people, I think the tone of this site is going to change. I feel things are going to be more strict, more calculated, and less customer friendly. I understand EF is a business (and I'm not referring to points in terms of tone, but all interactions with EF), but things feel... off...

If I were to leave, it wouldn't be in response to something done to me. It would be in response to my feelings on upper management.

I, along with others, would like to chat with the folks who gave everyone the ax.

Excellent post and I feel exactly the same. The whole 'bringing in new people' has more of a feel of 'bringing in the liquidators'.

It WOULD be nice to have some explanations as to why all the staff are suddenly gone. It doesn't make much sense.

I agree with pretty much everything that's been said. This seems extremely sudden and feels very foreboding.

I will miss them all. I feel like they made it feel like a family.

I'll dig in and see how it shakes out.

I agree. When I first saw that EVERYONE was gone, I panicked. "New eyes" sounds like it could be a disaster at this point. I worked at my old job for 3 1/2 years. In the time frame we had 8 new managers come and go, each one was brought in to be a "new set of eyes" for the unit and it was a terrible experience each and every time.

I'll stick around but I'm not sure if I can be here for the long run if everything keeps changing on us. These past 5 months have been hard on the community. So many changes and now we lost so many great admins.

Guys...calm down.

Why does everyone immediately assume the worst? What if the new community director is your favorite porn star who lights this place on fire with new and exciting things that none of us would have ever thought of? What if it just becomes so awesome that it's a party here 24/7?

What if all of this paves the way for a brick and mortar store with a cafe to sit and chat with your girlfriends while admiring the latest toys? What if...

Out of the ashes rises a phoenix, lest we forget that Fred is a literal genius and has so many things he wants to do here...

I know nothing about the new eyes coming in, but I can say that 13 people have been let go from EdenFantasys in the past 2 years and, as far as I know, none of those 13 have been given poor performance as a reason for their release.

I'm as confused as the rest of you, since it was my understanding that we were not being replaced but rather that things were being phased out and changing.

Time will tell. I certainly hope things stabilize for all of you soon. I know it's rough when you don't understand what is going on when you also feel like such a big part of something.

For myself, I'm hoping to still be around as part of the reviewing community but, like you all, I'm waiting to see what the future holds there.

It's hard to calm down when some "select" valued members were sent a mass message yesterday, and others were not. I understand that it isn't you, but Mwar hit the nail on the head.

Thank you so much for your input, Carrie Ann, your voice is much appreciated. Fingers crossed.

I totally understand that, I really do. I'm sharing all of the information I have. It would have been easier to start a thread.

I know it doesn't make much sense on the outside but there are some things that we aren't privy to and it should be that way, don't you think? How many companies discuss their personnel decisions?

I'll be here to help things remain stable until Fred makes his final decisions on things. After that, I'll return to being a contributor as long as you guys will have me.
