I may not be the most active member of the Arch community but with almost 1100 posts on the bbs and well over two years being active in #archlinux, I’d like to think I’ve done my part. Recently I realized that I’ve grown tired of reading and answering the same questions over and over again. Quite honestly, I’m not sure how the Arch devs and active supporters don’t just crack and disappear more often than they do.
In the three years I’ve used Arch many things have changed – especially the community. The increasing popularity has attracted many users who simply are not prepared to use what Arch gives them. I’m tired of holding their hands. I’m tired of watching other people hold their hands. I’ve been slain by the help vampire.
Consider this a resignation as an active Arch community member. Not goodbye, more like “keep in touch”. I’ll still be around on the bbs and I’m sure I’ll be stopping in on irc every now and again, but much less often. Feel free to shoot me an email. I’ll be keeping tabs on your websites too, so keep those updates coming.
