Just short of four years ago, I was introduced to a new website where you can find people to raid with. Skeptical at first, I didn’t give it much thought. A few days later, I made an account and became head over heels in love with the concept and the community. Since then, I’ve relentlessly worked to grow, support, and evolve OpenRaid.
Those four years have been some of the best I’ve ever had. I’ve met people from all over the world, both online and offline at various conventions and even just locally in my area! It’s been nothing sort of wonderful to be involved with OpenRaid.
With sadness, but also pride at what I’ve helped to accomplish, I’m resigning from my position as Director. After serious thought, I can truthfully say that my vision for how OpenRaid could influence ZergID does not work with what the people behind ZergID see for their future. This incompatibility has lead to me not being able to continue with OpenRaid.
I’m not closing my OpenRaid account – however I will not be able to with backend issues, such as most support ticket concerns. It is important to know that this means that nobody is doing support tickets. For that, I’m very very sorry – but there isn’t anything I can do about it. I’ll still be around the forums and can try to answer questions you have to the best of my ability, however I will not be speaking any further about my relationship with ZergID or what lead to my resignation. This is my personal business, and I am sure you all can understand that it’s private.
What happens next? Well, I’m not giving up on the cross-realm raiding community, and I’m very excited to be working with Method Gaming as one of their Community Managers/Social Media Manager.
As of this afternoon, I will NOT be running the OpenRaid Twitter account, but you can keep in touch with me via my personal Twitter @DarrieSrsly, or on the OpenRaid Forums while they last.
All the best to all of you, always. Thank you so, so, very much.
