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 email@example.com
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!
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,
