Topic Subject:The Sun Rises on a New Golden Age for AoKH
Leif Ericson
Seraph Emeritus
posted 07-25-17 10:33 PM CT (US)         
The sun is actually almost set where I am right now, but never mind that. You may notice that there are some additional glowing rays of yellow around here (or is it orange?). Yes, indeed. We have two new seraphs here at AoKH: Popeychops and HockeySam18. They are two of the best members of our community who will be able to do great things for our site.

However, as you may have feared, that glow may soon dim. I have decided to step down from the rank of Seraph to the rank of Angel in a month's time due to all the ordinary reasons. Yes, I will still remain among the staff. But I won't be seraph.

I originally became seraph back in May 2011 which seems like both forever ago and yesterday. This site has been a big part of my life, and I have always enjoyed the community here around my favorite childhood game. I will bring with me plenty of good memories of this place, and I have learned a whole lot here. (You learn a lot when you have a rowdy bunch of ten staff members! ) Thank you all for being a wonderful community during my dictatorship (whoops, wrong seraph) ...benevolent rule!

Congrats to the new top dogs, and Leif, thanks for everything you've done for us during your reign.

But seeing things you know that ain't
Can certainly give you an awful fright!

Thank you for all of your hard work, Leif. It's good to know you'll still be around.

And congratulations to our glorious golden Popura-chan and Sam! Long may you reign! ^_^

Leif, your AI guide is what got me going when I became interested in the AI part of Age of Kings so thanks for that.
Besides that, websites like this would not be here for people like me, if not for people like you so, thanks for your years of commitment to this great game. I'm glad you will still be around.

Thanks, everyone. I can't say I ever thought when I first started downloading scenarios from this site 10-11 years ago that I might end up at its helm, or that it might have set me on a path leading into professional game development, for that matter.

Congratulations to Popeychops on the promotion, as well

A congrats to HockeySam and Popeychops is due, like all our good staff I'm sure they will continue they're responsibilities. Also a thank you to Leif for bringing our university up to date and the many other behind the scenes things he's done throughout the years.

Thanks for all your work, Leif. I might not have been here before you were already a seraph, but I very much believe what Dave said when he left, that you might just have been the best seraph this site had so far.

And thanks to Sam and Popey, too, for taking over the responsibilities!

Leif has been AoKH's longest ever Seraph. He's such big boots to fill that we needed two of us.

Congrats Sam & Popey. Always knew you two would make it high up.
Leif Thanks for everything you've done here for AOKH! You became serif not long after I started here and the massive improvement to the site and community has been all down to you and your dedication. I'm very glad you are sticking around on staff!
