Hey all. I just wanted to apologize for taking the site down the way I did. Being busy with work and wanting a refund doesnt really excuse me taking it down so suddenly without really notifying anyone.

I will say I only had like a day left to get a refund but I should have came to that decision before I even brought up the site.

I should have known how busy I was going to be at work and that I couldn't handle the responsibilities of leading this clan.

I didn't mean to throw a kink in anyones plans or anything and to make up for it I have been letting you guys use the server I bought from skinner that I don't think I have played on more than once.

Good luck with everything. I'd like to see this clan do well. Its tlp's and divines love child basically. And I put alot of time, effort, and love into tlp.

I wish I could be a part of this and its unfortunately thats not possible at the moment. Good luck with everything guys.

But if you were too busy with work, why would you plan for a saber tournament immediately after?

It wasnt immedietly after.

I know no body cares, but since you asked, I had to fire a bunch of employees at work. Not only that its about to be the busiest time of year in my line of work.

When the site went down I was working close to 70 hours a week and I had corporate breathing down my neck about numbers. I was pretty stressed and to keep my job I knew I would have to totally devote myself to work.

When it comes to leading a clan, or keeping a good job and a roof over your head, well thats an easy choice.

About 6-7 days ago I hired a few employees who would take some of the work load off of me.

Also planning a saber tournament takes way less work than running a clan. A tournament is a once in every 4-6 weeks type thing. As a leader of a clan you should be active constantly.

Easier for me to do one thing every two months, than having to do alot of things every day.

I've been playing this series since dark forces 2 nearly 15 years ago. And it really bothers me seing the community shrink to nothing.

And honestly I want to play in a saber tournament, and I know if I don't host and make one happen, its doubtfull it will.

Unfortunetly there is no metaguardian in this community anymore. And no one seems to be trying to fill that role. I can't do as much as he could because my time constraints, but I believe I could bring the community an event every two months or so.

Anyway I hope that answers your question.

No apology necessary, imo. I wasn't really here for when it happened, but you did what you had to do.

You might feel that way but there are a few people here who hold some pretty big resentement over it. I just wanted everyone to know it was nothing personal and I hold no ill will towards this clan or the people here. Quite the contrary I want it to do well.

I'd honestly like to be just a normal member and come around every once in a while to game and chill but for reasons outside my controll thats not possible at the moment.

Whats going on here would be like telling the late steve jobs he is not welcome in an apple store...

I think I'll keep it at those of you who are being vindictive should be ashamed of yourselves. No one is perfect and everyone makes mistakes. Some of you I have known for 5+ years. And its not right to do me this way because I had a lapse in judgement. Especially considering all I have done for some of you.

I think I've done more than enough in the years I have known many of you that something like this can be excused. I mean don't I have a right to focus on work and if I can't be around enough to lead to resign the position? Its almost like I am not allowed to take time for myself to handle my business. And honestly do you really want an inactive leader? I think I did the right thing personally by resigning the position.

I do find it ironic that as soon as I couldnt be the sugar daddy and fund everything and that I didn't have enough time to do most the work, like I did for tlp, I am no longer welcome.

It sucks when people you hold in high regard/respect show their true colors like this.

Regardless I did not mean to go on a soap box and I wish all of you the best of luck. I hope to see you guys at the huge saber tournament I have coming up.

Why are you trying to justify yourself here? Nobody holds any genuine resentment for anything, because it's completely irrelevant at this point to anyone but you.

You claim to not want to go on a soapbox and rant, but every time you post there's a brand new wall of text.

If you have a life to attend to, you leave. You don't need to explain, and you don't need to stir up a sob story over it. Just go.

Understood. I didn't think it to be a sob story or anything of the such. However you have my word there will never be another post on these forums by myself which will do anything but contribute too positive events for mb2.
