Too Much of a Good Thing: an Apology.
First, I'm very sorry to everyone, especially Christer, This is the second time I've done this in the Blood Bowl community, though at least this time it doesn't have to be so destructive. I feel like I've earned myself an "extra quarter" with the FLCA and all, but only if I can turn this BS around.

Beginning at 23:58 tonight (14:58 my time), I will not log in until Sun, 31 March, and will ease myself back into FUMBBL... except that I will be talking to Wreckage about 1111 Losses. I will push for him to take all the FUMBBL out of it, but leave it as FUMBBL-ready nonetheless.

I will be popping my head into FLCA, NBFL, and NCBB on Discord. I may poke my head in on FUMBBL, but I won't post or comment, unless Kryten specifies that I do so, except in FLCA-oriented leagues for specific purposes (Smacky Awards and the finished NBFL Draft rules).

This smells like BS, because it is BS; it's just important BS. Clarke's Third Law is accurate, but games are a social technology, and social technology can be defined as magic (Confucius, please don't make me dig up the Analects), you guys are NOT wasting your time. Just don't dig too deeply into it.

Now, this applies to everything. I'll be watching y'all, but it will be with an eye to helping a certain someone pull a good book out of the wreckage of his last one. We'll mostly use history and music. There are a sea of similar papers, but the central point hasn't been digested, because it takes someone who wandered stupidly and aimlessly into exactly my education and landed up here could have gotten it. But I don't know what I can and cannot say. So I will not say anything until April or May, and Christer can give the go-ahead any time from late July onwards. I won't join any league lightly, and will be out of the NBFL for at least 2 seasons, probably 3 (so Fall 2020), maybe 4.

I will seek a broader base of help. This may get tricky, but I think I have a plan. I can't come back as "JackassRampant," but maybe something similar. I will not play any games until my birthday, but I may spectate. I'll do a new nick that keeps the old spirit.

Y'all will hear from me in bits and pieces on the TFF "T&TD: League" forum, and the BB Community on FB.

You guys rock, and I hope to rejoin you in the summer.

~~*

Now, for the apology.

I was really onto something, and I spent 12 days in the hospital. A good friend died, and I'm very concerned for the health of the site. I believe that Christer needs a backup, that we all have to pitch in for it, and that I cannot run a fundraiser. Christer, you have amazing admins, can you help them build this up?

I'm sorry I had to let it go, too. But I'm much more sorry about pissing Christer off. The others who jumped into action, y'all were heroes ... I hope. This ain't over yet, but if I come back it will be with a bundle of gifts.

Bye for now,

Matt G. Slater

Bye forever?

"JackassRampant"

Hope to see you in some other environment. :D

Sincerely, Take care brother. Just take care of yourself. [u]All[/u] of this is secondary at best. Just take care of yourself.

Aye. Take care - don't disappear - but take the advice of Yoda:

You will know... when you are calm.

Don't worry about the site too much man, take care !

I got 45 mins left, then I only talk via back-channels, or via discord with people who have independent back channels anyway (this is a sneaky way to get around "SOMEbody never checks his FB profile). Go ahead and ping me in NBFL, NCBB, or 145 (the "help" channels only). I may not answer, but I will read it. I will also talk to admins and staff, but I'll be sparing about this.

41 minutes left. Yah. tl;lol.

Best wishes JR! Take care of your needs first...
Posted by JellyBelly on 2019-03-01 04:41:15
Yes, please look after yourself, JR. It might be a good idea to take a break from FUMBBL/BB for a little while, to focus on your health. I wish you all the best buddy.
