Judge resignation

Recommended Posts

After five years on the panel, it's time for me to step down. I became a judge in late 2004, not long after my second remix was posted. I didn't have a lot going for me at the time; Larry was particularly skeptical that I could do the job, since I had few credentials. But the panel as a whole took a chance on me and I'm extremely grateful I've been able to give back to the site for this long.

Hey, TO BE FAIR, I didn't say you'd never be ready, I just said I hadn't seen enough yet. :-P

The door's always open, Andy, you know that.

The end of an era! Obviously, a huge thanks to the Aversas - both of them - for their time spent on the judges panel. Hopefully Andy can remain active & involved with the site in other ways; his absence will certainly be felt.

Thanks for your time as a Judge zircon. I think it's safe to say you've done well as an asset to OCR and the community as a whole. Best of luck!

Thanks for sticking around as long as you did! All your contributions are very much appreciated.

What, all that judging getting in the way of Heroes of Newerth? :<

To make up for this, you have to buy me TWO pieces of pizza at MAGfest!

Robotaki: I would have never rejected any of your tracks anyway. Submit Manoria Cathedral, damnit!

Dhsu / everybody: A problem for me is that while I often have access to my laptop (and can play games on it, post on the forums, post on IRC, etc.) I rarely have uninterrupted time to just listen to things in my studio. One of many reasons why it's not necessarily an "A or B" choice for me.

Thanks for all the kind words :)

ps. I do have a new mix coming up. It's done and in the queue - Team Fortress 2.

Awwww...

This is disappointing...

I came into OCR while you were a judge, so it's as if a big part of OCR was sliced off...

Do'h, good luck anyways (with whatever you're gonna do now).

I have to quote BT/Heraclitus: "The only constant is change."

While the past efforts made by you Andy are much appreciated and honorable, this change must only mean that you are doing great things elsewhere :) Have fun diving into your future endeavors! I can't say I'm not saddened to see that your activity will diminish around here, but I know it will be for the better.

Get out.

So nice. Well, thank you, Andrew, for all you've done. I hope this is only one less facet you encompass around here and that you keep all your other forms of presence. Best of luck not-judging (so best of luck doing everything else), and I'll miss getting no'd by you, even though I don't think I have been yet :P
