Hello Chipsters,

I've been heading down a slippery slope lately, and don't feel I am mentally "fit" enough to keep running CC Zone for much longer. My tenure for CC Zone has been 3 years, and I personally feel it is time for me to step down as Site Owner and Administrator. The site isn't going to close down. It will stay functional until I find a successor, but there seems to be a "demon" lurking inside me and the Tom who adored Chip's Challenge is no longer present.

 

I'm not a perfect creature. I've made mistakes, and have had a bit of a "dark" vibe inside me for quite a while. As the years have passed, the positives have diminished, which is ironic because I originally created CC Zone: The Next Level to give myself some purpose in life and cure my severe depression. It worked for the first year, but after that I haven't really been doing a good job with keeping the site functional and looking after the Chip's Challenge community effectively. I still haven't done all the "Level-Up" rankings and given out all the correct CC Zone awards to members for example.

 

I can't say I deserve to be forgiven for the many bad things I have done. I don't believe anyone starts evil though. I certainly didn't, but that's how I feel about things.

 

If you are interested in becoming the new CC Zone owner/administrator, just reply in this topic or PM me on CC Zone.

 

Tom P (AdrenalinDragon),

CC Zone Site Owner/Administrator

I currently have andyrkki and M11k4 interested in taking over CC Zone. If anyone else is interested, I will keep submissions open until the end of April.

It sure is nice to see that someone who isn't that active here is interested in taking over this forum! :)

But I thought Miika was leaving and andyrkki was banned...

Miika said he's still willing to do it, and andyrkki was initially banned for being hostile to CC Zone after closing Chip's Portal. He mellowed out after a while, so I decided to unban him.

Considering andyrkki hasn't shown too much activity in the recent past (as in absolutely none in the last 2 years), I don't think he would be the best candidate for admin at this time. If Miika is willing I think he'd be a strong candidate!

Seconded.

Care to post anything in your defence to this, Andrew R?

This is heavy!

 

Couldn't resist the Back to the Future reference! :P

 

Anyway, update on the ownership of CC Zone. I am still the owner, as I have no idea what happened to Miika. He tried to pay for the website, but something went wrong. I have now moved to a different location and there's much less pressure on me since the beginning of this topic, but I'm still inactive on here and have no interest in Chip's Challenge at the moment.

 

Happy Halloween!  :chipwin:

Good to hear Tom!

 

I'm currently taking a break from CC, but should still be reachable and am still willing to help with the website whenever and however you need. (Though now that I have moved, Google is not letting me sign in to cczonenextlevel without your verification, but let's figure that out when we have to.)

 

I'd also like to encourage others to donate each year to keep us running. If you've never done so before, consider giving $10 to a website that will serve you and your hobby for years. Personally, I feel this website has grown to be an integral part of the community and is worth preserving for the sake of Chip!

 

All the best!

I should've known... I was seriously thinking some random person registered just to make that post :facepalm:
