#Announcement - Goodbye Stormy

Sangsara Sangsara
The point changes were a tough swallow but I always found that fact that Eden gives so much away to any old Tom Dick or Hairy that signs up to be pretty amazing anyway and there are other ways to earn points (like by writing for Sexis wink wink) so I think it's totally heinous that a group of people would lash out at an admin enough to cause her resignation. At the same time "Good for you Stormy that you have strong enough boundaries to do what's right for you and take care of you!!!!" Abuse is not something that any of us should EVER have to accept. Best wishes for your new endeavors!

Has it been confirmed that Stormy was getting personal abuse for the point changes or is this just baseless Internet speculation that's spiralling out of control? Right now it seems that one or two people have jumped to a conclusion and that second-hand info is being taken as Gospel truth as to what's actually happened.

At the risk of derailing this 'Goodbye' thread, surely any attacks on an EF member (never mind a Mod) mean that the guilty parties (rightfully) have their accounts terminated?

I think it's Stormy's place to confirm or deny any rumours and she might not even want to. Until then, we should avoid the speculation, mob mentality and witch-hunts and stick to us saying our goodbyes to someone who has helped to keep the Community side of EF running for so long.

Well even though I didn't know you Stormy, I did get to see some of your posts and you hosting the St. Patrick's day party. The party was awesome by the way and I hope you had as much fun working on it as I did attending. I hope that people talking bad to you personally is just a myth and that you're leaving because you want to and you have something even more great to spend your time on. The only thing I regret is not getting you know you better.

Cheers to you for your hard work as an admin for a year!

Good luck in whatever is in store for you after Eden, Stormy! I'm glad to know that we'll still see you around, even if it's not in an administrative capacity.

It is sad to see Stormy go I only spoke with her a couple of times but she seemed so friendly. Such a shame the way that the point change started such an uproar. Personally I feel people should be happy that there is even still a point system in the first place.

I'm so sorry to see you go, Stormy, but I do hope that you manage to clear your head and the such, and then I hope to see you on the boards again. I'm sorry if this has already been asked, or answered, but has someone been chosen for the admin spot that she's left open?

although i havent had time to interact with Stormy one-on-one, she seems like a total sweet hear and i know many are sad to see her go. I hope they she will still stick around as a member and make post/reviews every so often as they're always great. Good luck to you Stormy and i wish you the best!

Stormy has been wonderful to me in the few one on one interactions we have had on the site. I can only imagine how tough it must be, being an admin for a website, especially when there is negative feedback thrown at you from people who don't care what they say on the internet. I deal with people on the phones yelling at me because of their bank accounts, and I know how stressful it can be working with people who are upset. I think the changes Eden is going through will ensure they will be around for a lot longer, but not everyone can be happy about those changes. Stormy has done so much for the community, and I'm relieved to hear she will still be part of this community.

Best of luck on your job hunt!

So it is, that the greatest Contributors, like (Sam (aka Jul!a)' and now 'Stormy', who we are lost at this time, are some of the best people who have made a significant impact to the growth and development of the Eden Fantasys community! They will both be missed! I think that the changes that Eden has been experiencing will 'not' be a positive development to the overall program as we know it today. Shall I mention the Points Program, as an example!

It's been spring break here so today was my first day on, but Stormy, I think you are a wonderful person and you will be missed as an administrator, but hope to see you around as a contributor. Best of luck to you in your next endeavor.

I'm relatively new and so haven't really gotten to know people yet, but you alway came across as very compassionate and helpful (and anyone who counts with primes is awesome in my book.)

Good luck in your future endeavors!
