DesuStrike resigns from all froum duties

Freewheeling spot to chew the fat on anything cryptostorm-related that doesn't fit elsewhere (i.e. support, howto, &c.). Criticism & praise & brainstorming & requests for explanation... this is where it goes when it's hot & ready for action! :-)

DesuStrike resigns from all froum duties

Postby DesuStrike » Sun Mar 23, 2014 11:41 pm

Dear CryptoStorm community,

today I filed my own resignation from my position as a forum helper and now I want to inform the community about it.
There are several personal issues I have to take care of which make it impassible for me to properly exercise this role.
Some of the shortcomings on this forum stem mostly from my lack of time and energy.

I know there hardly couldn't be a worse time to resign as the team is very busy right now but I'm at my limit. Maybe the extra work load finally showed me that I started lagging behind a long time ago.
Actually the workload isn't all that much but it's too much for me right now. A motivated person with some free time at hand could do this job easily.

I don't know if CryptoStorm plans to promote one or more community members to be the new forum helper(s). Nonetheless I suggested one or more people to them to be my successor.
We won't tell anybody who I suggested though. So don't ask. Neither I nor them will tell you. The fact that somebody was picked by CS also doesn't mean that I suggested them. So please don't try to make conclusions based on that.

I won't sign onto the forum after this post. Actually this account will be deleted. (Hint @ CS-Team!) So possible PMs won't be read by me.
My posts will stay as I wrote some HOWTOs and it would be bad if they are gone only because I'm gone.

I am very sorry that I have to take this step as I love CryptoStorm and I was very proud to be a small part of it.
I wish both the CryptoStorm Team and the community all the luck and success in the world. Together you can make this VPN even better than it already is. Always remember that by contributing to CS you not only help yourself but a lot of activists and other people that need protection around the world. CS is not a run off the mill "company" that strives for money and nothing else. To be honest I sometimes wonder if CS is even self sufficient or if some from the team pay for this project with their own money. Either way CS is run by people with high standard ideals in both HOW a VPN is properly run and WHY it is important to never betray a community member. These people have a dream they fight for and they do a damn good job while they are at it!

So support them! Help them so they can help you in return!
You can help in many ways: Money, Forum Helper, writing HOWTOs and stuff, helping other community members, reporting bugs and contacting support@cryptostorm.is if something is out of order.

Maybe I'll come back one day. Maybe not. But if I do you better made this VPN the damn most successful one the internet has ever seen! :P
Either way I will always be among you as I obviously will continue using CrypoStorm. There is no alternative! Always remember that!

Last melancholy cheers,
~DesuStrike

Always sad to see a valued member go. Here's hoping you conquer your issues and return to us in some shape or form. Keep your account though even if it's just locked. :)

Indeed, it will be a big very hole you leave, Desu, and let me thank you for all you have done. You have definitely helped massively as we have clawed our way out of the VPN muck. :)

Please know that the door is always open if your situation changes in the future, and even if you just pop in once a week or month or whatever, your input and awesome attitude will always be welcome!

All the best!

I need to echo the sentiments expressed by Graze and parityboy that your presence, input, and insight will be sorely missed, DesuStrike. You've done a lot for the community and individual users and it's all immensely appreciated, but your reasons are also understood. Please, feel free to stop by whenever you've got the time as it'll be great to see you wandering these proverbial halls again, even for a little while.

I wish you nothing but the absolute best in wherever your endeavors take you. Good luck, and take care.

Sorry to hear you're leaving man,
For n00b to this space your threads have helped me past techy frustrations and provoked thought on themes that I would have never considered.
Kia kaha bro, and best of luck

I'm really sorry to see you go, sometimes, especially in the "OpenVPN config topic" I though that we where the only ones here in the forum :-D
I've loved the several debates about the configuration files and it's options, loved that I've found a way to put the configuration file up and working with no errors in the log's, and managed to do an auto-login feature with one single file :-D

Sorry to see you go, but I do understand your choice, and I think it's better to quit gracefully them to leave everything "die" and them quit.

Hope to see you soon

You know, it's hard to understate the amount of value that people like Desu, you, and all the other people who are working hard to make a difference have actually done here. I wrote a whole bunch of other stuff that was really over the top, but I deleted it all and replaced it with this:

Thank you. Without the help of everyone here, there would be no progress against the All Seeing Eye.

We'll keep iterating over this until it's so easy our grandmothers can click on some icon and know that no-one but their grandchildren will hear their voice. That will be sweet victory.

Sounds over-the-top, but that's what we're all building here. :)

How come I'm reading that just now?..

It may be half a year too late to be saying this, but I'll do it anyway: thanks for your hard work, DesuStrike.

I'm sure these words have been offered privately by numerous members of the cryptostorm team, but we did want to reiterate - publicly - our deepest gratitude for everything DS has contributed to this project since its earliest days. Loyalty begets loyalty, and he has earned our genuinely loyalty... and then some.

Stay safe and strong out there, friend.

Cheers,

~ cryptostorm_team
