Stepping Down

Postby JaredWard » Thu Nov 14, 2019 1:15 pm

What's up guys! Feels like forever since I’ve made a thread. Just writing this to let everyone know that I’m officially stepping down as an admin here on The Alter Bridge Nation. It’s been a great run and hopefully my contributions to the site, the forums, social media, & other various outlets have done you all and the band justice. I’ve been at this for 10 years now and I’ve learned a lot. I’m not asking for a pat on the back. I just want to say a quick thank you to the team (past and present) for allowing me to be a part of this. Thank you to the band for the opportunities they’ve given to the site and to me personally over the years. I took all of this very seriously, sometimes too seriously. :lol

Also, to the “civil” and “non-troll” Alter Bridge fans - I salute you. I’ve literally seen it all when it comes to the various arrogant, selfish, negative, self-centered people through out the years. Even some of the most recent comments/posts I’ve been seeing on social media are downright immature and embarrassing. That’s really why I’ve distanced myself from a lot of it for a long while. Unfortunately those types of toxic people will always be around in some way, shape, or form. I just want to encourage the supportive fans to continue doing what you’re doing and to silence those people with generosity and positivity. Stay humble and please continue to respect the Mods/Rules here.

A huge shout out to those who are still here from ABB.net!

If you ever want to connect with me feel free to hit me up on Instagram or Facebook. For those who don’t know I’m in a new metal band called Fight the Fury and I’m a graphic designer when I’m not behind a drum kit. Links are below if you wanna check those things out.

Thanks again guys! It’s been fun. :)

Godspeed.
-Jared

You will be missed, Jared! It's always sad when someone leaves the team, especially someone with such a long tenure. You've contributed so much to the site in your many years as an admin. Your hard work and passion will not be forgotten!

Thanks to you and all the mods, past and present, for giving us a home here.

Thank you for your efforts over the years. And thanks for uploading the iHeart Radio performances of Creed back then. This was actually the first time I ever read your name, years before I registered in this forum. :D

Honestly once Cam got promoted it really lowered the bar so I don’t blame anyone for feeling like the position isn’t worth as much now.

There will be a new theme eventually. The forums are in good hands.

Aww, it's always sad to see someone step away from the team, but I understand. Thank you for all you've done for this site over the years! It was an honor and a pleasure to be part of the team with you when I was on board. :) You've always been one of the good ones. Are you going to be out on tour with FtF again any time soon?

I was trying to figure out if that was trolling or someone he knows having a "friendly" jab, but that doesn't seem like a Jared friend. lol. Seriously, what joy to people take in being dicks online?

He's been around a lot longer than you have my friend.

Thanks for helping out Jared. We've not interacted much but I've seen the amount of effort you've put in here since I joined in 2006.

His whole demeanor in this forum is purely toxic. I wonder why he isn't banned yet.
