I'm saddend to read that you're leaving us. My opinion is that I don't care how much money Phil is making as long as the site is running ok. Because he's not accepting donations I don't require a break down of where the money goes to again provided the wiki is running as it should. I've considered leaving too, the GuildWiki has been a joke of late but I'm going to hold out until the new server goes in. I'm hoping that this "new structure" will be for the better; where Phil's just paying the bills and buying hardware when required, doing a limited amount of server maintenance but staying out of GuildWiki policy. Fyren is working with Phil and doing the majority of the work to keep the servers running smoothly. This leaves the rest of us contributing and developing policy. To me that's not a bad way of doing things.
The only thing I don't like about it is the current RFA system, it's sucky and half-assed in my opinion. You'd think that during this time of slowness it'd be good for you to be sysoped so you can help keep things in order and my being in Australia would be useful because my timezone means that I probably experience the least amount of slowness and have a better chance of getting work done. A lot of the current admins have refused to say much on the RFA process debate which I've found disappointing too. Anyway enough on that, I've basically given up on my RFA ever going through, I'm sick of beating a dead horse.
Well I don't want to end on a sour note, I'm waiting to see how we're tracking after the new server goes in. We, the GuildWiki, have lost a lot of credibility over the last few weeks but there's a heck of a lot of us who've worked very hard on this project. If we can get things right soon, hopefully we can minimise the damage and rebuild our reputation and work towards having a better GuildWiki than before. If you do head off into the sunset, I wish you all the best, it's been very enjoyable working with you Xeeron but I hope you don't go, the GWiki would be poorer without your presence and as I've said a number of times, you're one of good guys!. --Xasxas256 17:30, 15 November 2006 (CST)
It's sad to see you leave, but I can understand it. I stopped contributing two weeks ago I think because of the slowness. Well, best wishes, I hope to see you again! :) ~ Nilles (chat) 01:02, 16 November 2006 (CST)
- Sorry, I dont want to make a drama queen exit, I just wanted to let everyone know why I am unhappy with the way the wiki is currently handled by Gravewit. Basically what Karlos wrote on his talk page mirrors my feelings very well. Sure, we will get the new machine eventually, but I think the basic problem is the lack of information flow between Gravewit and the editors. I love the wiki and I will most likely come back, but I need to see something first which makes me believe that Gravewit will actually inform the wiki about wiki stuff in the future. --Xeeron 11:14, 16 November 2006 (CST)
- Hope to see you back soon. Also hope Tanaric's plan for a change is heeded. Sorry I missed this when it happened. --Karlos 09:21, 21 November 2006 (CST)
- Xeeron, needless to say I, too, am sorry that you "left". You were preaching the choir with your plea for more transparency, and it looks like we've actually been heard and things are changing for the better, both in terms of tech (server speed) and organization. See the links that Skuld provided. Hope to see you back soon! -- 09:52, 21 November 2006 (CST)
- Apparently I'm not watching as closely as I once was to have missed this. I had to read on Gravewit's talk page that you had left and I doubt you'll read this, but I'm going to say what I need to say anyways. There are a lot of us that were prepared to leave with this utter lack of responsibility and from what Xas said, I would hate to think I,or anyone else, labors to format and fill in content for this to be a great resource to users just so some guy can make a little extra money and isn't responsible enough to know when upgrades are needed and ignored any and all warnings (at least from what I saw). I don't like to lash out, but I'll leave that there to show everyone how I feel. /rant over.
- Anyways, some know I hate the builds section and I don't want anything to do with it. I want you to know that you were one of the only ones I respected when it came to votes and the builds in general. Didn't know you, but you made solid edits and on here that means a lot in my book. Hate to see anyone go with your experience, but sometimes you have to do what you have to do. Goodluck in the future and hope to see you around sometime. — Gares 10:30, 21 November 2006 (CST)
- I'm really sad to see you go and really do hope you'll be back. I'm kind of glad that I'm not in on all the Cloak n Dagger stuff going on in the background I guess. When money is involved, even the most pleasant of situations can turn sour in an instant. Anyways, I hope you see what it is you're waiting for and join us again! You're definately going to be a noticed absence. Peace, love, and prosperity. — Jyro X 06:04, 25 November 2006 (CST)
- This is the final thing I'll say on the matter, if you're like Gares and didn't get much of a chance to work with Xeeron and see him in action, you really missed out. There's lots of really good contributors here but I think more than any other person I looked up to Xeeron. He was an incredibly even handed person who was prepared to listen to the opinion of any user here. Although not everybody likes the builds section you have to admire the dedication and hard work that Xeeron put in to it. It was an enormously ambitious endeavour that surely wouldn't have lasted the distance without Xeeron's brilliance.
- It makes me sad to think that you won't be around here anymore but everybody appreciates the work you've put in. The builds section will continue and is a testament to your efforts even as you move on and I wish you all the best with whatever you're spending your new free time with. Best of luck Xeeron, you won't be forgotten anytime soon and I will continue to aim to be as level headed as yourself. --Xasxas256 07:03, 25 November 2006 (CST)
- I'm sorry I missed this announcement when it happened. I didn't check the wiki at all until the new server was put in place.
- There's not much I can say now that I haven't said before. I've praised your tireless devotion to the wiki countless times in our correspondence, and, from the comments on this page, it looks like everyone else agrees with me.
- All I can really say is that I hope the nature of this place shifts in such a way that both of us will return someday.

- I fear that the builds section has lost one of its greatest advocates. Xeeron, you will be missed by all who care for builds on the wiki. Tis a sad day indeed ;_;— Azroth 22:49, 30 November 2006 (CST)
Not to take away from everyone being sad that you're leaving (I am too, but my comp's really slow so it'd take forever to reply in the above section...), but is it ok if I put this image on PvXwiki? As it is, I've only got a link to the gw version of the image... Armond 18:00, 3 May 2007 (CDT)
- Sure you can use it. Isn't PvX wiki using the same licence as guildwiki? I thought all carry over problems could be avoided that way. ::shrugs:: --Xeeron 09:17, 8 May 2007 (CDT)
- I thought so too, but I really don't know. I'm just sick of headaches. Thanks. --Armond Warblade (talk) 19:30, 9 May 2007 (CDT)
