This is a goodbye.

Post by Roboterlein on 10/2/2011, 11:30 pm

As many of you have noticed, I have been on less and less in the preceding weeks. This is due to good reason, as I am leaving in a week for the Army. I will not be on anymore for some time, and the length of that time is unknown to me. I will, of course, update anyone and everyone as often as possible.

I started on Oasis one night when I was bored. I had been working on running my own server, learning to code in Java and attempting to make my own plugins when I just got fed up with it. Once again, I hopped Minestatus to browse the popular servers and get ideas when there it was. I had spotted that beautiful Oasis banner. As I had been doing all night (I was currently doing a sleep-cycle schedule where I slept for 20minutes at a time, four times a day), I logged on and went plugging away. The first person to welcome me was Bella, and I quickly disregarded everyone as I ventured off to create whatever I could, testing the limits of what I knew and what I thought I could get away with. First rule I broke was when I built a clock system on accident and was quickly corrected (I forget by whom though). Shortly thereafter, I found my creations broken, as we were in-between having BB and LB and alas, it could not be fixed. I moved on. I played day and night, not doing much else as I lost jobs/got jobs/did nothing else. I played over 200 hours in my first two weeks. Perhaps not much of a feat of skill or glory, but surely testament to how much I played. I familiarized myself with as many players as possible, tried to be helpful (later found out that I was just annoying some of staff) and generally did my thing. I created a price/wares guide to help out the economy (using up many of those seemingly countless hours with that) and then applied for the Guide position when I thought I could help more than I could hurt. Of course, I was wrong (kinda) When Sainteven's impromptu promotion managed to create a shitstorm that nearly got me banned, caused me to lose a lot of credit, led to my girlfriend and myself catching a lot of harassment while simultaneously giving me nearly everything I wanted, I felt as though I had both accomplished and failed. I managed to make a lot of friends that I spent more time with in-game than I did real people IRL. I felt as though I were part of a community that I could relate with. I still feel that way as Oasis has moved past me and forward with it's own development. Neither donating, nor countless hours, nor putting up with idiocy will be enough of a thank you to both of the Oasis Owners, the Oasis Staff and all of the Oasis Players. I am leaving Oasis wishing that I never had to. I may be gone for quite a while, but I'll carry Oasis with me everywhere I go.

To everyone in Oasis,

Thank you.

Ivan (Roboterlein)

Ivan, you may not remember 1kshards, but i remember meeting you. From memory, i harrased you a little and annoyed you, (not the best first impresion) but you were awesome anyway! I remember it was my first day if im correct, right before the new 1.8 map, and im sorry this sentence is so long, but you were awesome. Good luck in the army and if you go to war, dont die. I dont want to lose another person i know to the war... (i lost my dad, my uncle, and granfather to the war).

Dude you being part of the server, regardless of the timespan, was seriously awesome IMHO. Totally enjoyed your online presence while it lasted. Hopefully when you are done with your duties you will be able to return to Oasis and visit.

Other than that, I wish you the best of luck, and may the winds of fortune be at your back.

Goodbye.

It's always sad to see a fellow oasian leave. I can't really think of anything else to say other than that. I just hope you come back some day. Even if it is next year, next month or next week. :P
