BD/SM Lives on! I am so proud! =)

It has been a long, long time, But I look back on my administration days with fondness.

Hard to believe it has been 12 years since I initially signed on with Tacticsoft. When I think about the early days, I get a mixture of nostalgia, regret and epic facepalm urges! xD

I am nostalgic for all of the people I worked with and the good times…

I regret many things about my tenure, starting with but not limited to doing away with the original SPAM board in the original forum. Only now, older and a little wiser, do I realize the sway the freedom that board provided to the grassroots community. While cleaning it up was part of my original tasking from higher up, I really wish now that I had taken a different tact… Live and learn…

I did some pretty dopey things whilst world admin. Usually when I would wake at crazy hours to track the progress of big battles and monitor for multiple accounts, etc… Ive banned the wrong account at a key moment for the player in a war, given resources to entire worlds thinking I was on the test servers when in fact I was on the wrong tab entirely, and quite a few other poopy-faces that make me want to facedesk repeatedly! LOL

All in all though, I miss the old community. The players. The coworkers, moderators and community volunteers. Some of the coolest people I have ever met, I met because of these games.

For those of you still here, Thank you for the memories, good and bad! I cherish them all!

EDIT: I am NOT actually an administrator here. Just wanted to be clear on that…

Hi Seth! So good to hear from you. You are missed, despite any old mistakes you made, I always enjoyed playing your worlds. Good times. So, what are you doing these days? You going to try your hand at playing BD2?

Thanks Angel! I appreciate ya!

Workin’ for a living. Landed a job for a global pharmaceutical and nutrition company. I turn liquid baby formula into dried powder. It is a job heavy in science, namely physics, chemistry and technology. The money is killer, but the job is very demanding. It doesn’t leave much in the way of free time, or I would most certainly consider playing seriously. Unfortunately, I will have to settle for some casual experimentation just to see what BD2 is all about…

Perhaps someday…

Congrats on the job! Yes a couple of us discussed how playing BD makes it hard to be able to balance work/life and the game, since it is a 24/7 game. It would be cool if bd2 somehow works in a way for people to be able to balance everything more.

Hey Joe! I miss you too bro! I think of ya often! We had many a late night, toiling over the community and worlds. I am not the least bit surprised that you are still a fixture in BD!

@Angelwings Thanks! Yeah, I work 12 hour shifts on a dynamic rotation. Some nights are slow and I get alot of chair/computer time, but I can never guarantee it. Sometimes I will have entire weeks that are just brutal and demanding with little sitting still, and then I come home completely wiped out and sleep until I have to go back. Gotta take the good with the bad I suppose. I look forward to digging in to the gameplay and mechanics of BD2, but fear I could not commit to more than that, no matter how much I would like to…

@Alexander CEO!! You know, I can’t say I am really all that surprised. You and Guarav were always there once you arrived, and I couldn’t have done my job, however greatly or poorly I did at a given time, without you and the other community members like you. To see that the game(s) ended up staying in the hands of someone from the community, well, it makes me a little emotional!
