I know first hand we wouldn't have SOI3 without you Nimrod. Don't ever think we're ungrateful for your dedication and commitment.

Take a break mate, well deserved and needed!

In my time knowing and working with Nimrod I've come to learn he's one of the hardest working individuals I know, and one of the most pleasant to be around. There are no politics or hidden agendas with Nim.

Unfortunately, this game is seeing a great loss in his departure as an Elder Staff member and lead RPA. Before launch, Nim was largely responsible for the organization and distribution of tasks for staff members looking to get the game to open, and I for one am thankful for his hard work.

At the very least we're lucky to have Nim handling our codebase here. Let us hope he returns to other duties in time :)

Got to admit, was fairly worried for SoI when I heard that the Coder was quitting, then I read that they were just cutting back on responsibilities but still offering help with the code end.

That makes me hopeful for the future of the game. Really, too much responsibility makes for a sub-par performance on all responsibilities taken.

If Nimrod feels that the various roles were too much/too detracting, then I will understand, acknowledge, and respect that decision. And feel grateful that they are still willing to offer the critical assistance of coder.

Nimrod, if you think we're going to let you go peacefully to the rusty old junk heap in the sky, you got another think coming, buddy!

To dedicate so much of your time to building something for the joy of others is true kindness and selflessness. You've got my love, my thanks (*gimli voice* and my axe!)

Nim, you are responsible for bringing one of my most favorite games back to life and making it better than it was. I thank you for your time, your effort, and everything that you have accomplished.

Thank you so very much!

I remember your contributions to the game since when I first began playing SoI. In fact, you were the first admin I petitioned in SoI (my first character, stuck in a remote room in old Osgi, and I didn't know about room progs :oops: ).

You're an integral part of SoI and I'm glad you're still on board as a coder.

You are probably the sole reason why I was never permabanned. Cheers.
