DJ Ashval's Fond Farewell to GridStream
DJ Ashval sends his fond farewell and steps away from GridStream Productions (GSP).
Today DJ Ashval has announced he would be officially resigning his position with GridStream Productions (GSP). He announced this on the GridStream (GSP) official forums with a very lengthy 'farewell' post to the community:
"After many months of struggling with enjoying my shows and feeling worn down from responsibilities I used to enjoy, I've decided that it's time for me to step away from GSP. I'll finish out my regular shows this year and plan on a final "Year In Review" show in early January, which will be my final show. It seems somehow appropriate to make my last show a bit of a marathon. Believe me when I say that I took a great deal of time before finally reaching this decision. I’ve been struggling with it for months now, and I know it’s the right decision for me and for GSP.
It’s difficult to put to words how much my time with GSP has meant to me. I'm deeply honored to have been a part of this amazing group of people. While I may be leaving the organization, I know the friendships I've gained will remain. I will always look back on my time in GridStream Productions as something incredibly special. I put a great deal of blood, sweat and tears (literally) into this experience, and I step away with some sadness but also with a lot of pride.
GSP is going to see some changes going forward, but it will go on. This is just a changing of the guard. Tarryk and I discussed who would fill my position of Director and we both felt DJ Klinical was the best choice. While it may seem strange that one of our newest members be given this responsibility, Tarryk and I saw it as the natural choice. Doc is passionate about this organization, and I have the utmost confidence in him..."
I think I speak for everyone when I say the people at Funcom, the fans of your show, and the Anarchy Online community wish you the best of luck DJ Ashval! We were deeply honored to have you within the community and you will surely be missed!
