A few of us decided we'd like to show our appreciation for the two of you. So we decided to write a few things up: some memories, stories, and best wishes but most of all we all want to thank both of you for everything you've done for this place! The steps we as a community have taken and the progress we've all made along the way is thanks to the hard work and dedication from both of you.
KSI Fuzzymeep 7. There are a lot of things I want to say about this man, some publically, and some privately only between himself, and myself. Those that are private are so the rest of the world does not see me being mushy and overly affectionate. With that, I will start again! KSI Fuzzymeep 7, known to many as the Father of KSIs fresh start, the king of .org and mentor to us all. It took me around a year of being in KSI to fully realise who Fuzzy was, I had always thought of him as a figure head, or a big brother figure who watched over us without saying much, however I have never been so wrong. I fully started my interactions with him after I made AAP Department head, which was one of the most intimidating moments of my being in KSI, being in a party with Fuzzy as he asked me questions about my direction, goals and ambitions. Oh boy! It was then that I met Fuzzy. The fuzzy who has a voice, and opinion and knowledge about everything. The man of legend that I had been hearing about. I said I was wrong about him being big brother, I was wrong, he is the big brother that will argue with you when you are wrong, but teach you how to do it properly. He is the person that will take time out of his rest time after a 17hour shift to make sure you are fine after you have a moment, or in my case a few moments. Since then, I have spent time laughing, crying, arguing and debating with him, all for the betterment of myself and for the community. There are few persons in this community, and likely to be very few like him after today that will take the same care and initiative that he has done. From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank you for what you not only have done for this community, but for myself personally. You took my desire and wishes to be able to help this community on a greater and grander scale and made it a reality. You made me believe in myself, which is not something I accept lightly, once again thank you for all you have done.
Fuzzy - To my longest xbl friend, enjoy retirement. Didnt think this would be a think I'd be writing while we were playing cops and robbers on H2 or sword cancelling out of maps. You are one sexy sob and we need to renovate the secret base soon js its getting a bit dusty.
Rags - I have your job so I guess retirement is the next option. I guess ill continue to send you under the kilt pictures maybe or at the very least at a reduced price.
Fuzzy and Raggy... actually retiring? I'll believe it when I see it!! I've only been involved with KSI for just over two years, and you both have had a huge influence on my time as an officer and as a 7. Fuzzy, being more involved on a community level was always someone I could look up to. I never really got the time to sit down and ask for your advice specifically, but you were always an example on how I should handle myself in certain situations. You were, and always will be what I think KSI represents, and I thank you for playing such a crucial role in making KSI what it is today. A safe and fun environment for gamers to come together. The fruits of your endless work and dedication will be around for years to come. Raggy on the other hand I came across on accident! It is one of the best accidents that has ever happened to me. That day, I gained one of my best friends, a "little brother" who is there for me whenever I need him. Raggy, I'm glad that you always made yourself available to vent to, whether that be KSI related, or something that's going on in my life. You've talked me down in several situations, and helped me make a more clear decision. Even though I will still talk to you everyday, I'll definitely miss having you around in a KSI aspect. <3 Wrapping up, with their retirement KSI will be losing two major pillars that have shaped and cared for this community for over ten years. Thank you for your time and effort, all of the mentoring you've done for the countless members, and the ideas that have come into play that have made our community a better place!
Over the last 10 years I have seen these two go thru some good moments and some terrible days where things looked like nothing would be fine.
I have known you for several years now you still manage to put up with me after 10 years without having killed me. I consider you to be one of my dearest friends To which I have the utmost respect and love for you. There Have been some notable days with the pair of us where we could go from wanting to kill each other to wanting to just grab a drink and laugh at something stupid. You have taught me Most of the things i needed to learn as a admin and to try to keep my anger in check. My hope for the future is that you continue to be around and have less stress to deal with and that your work goes well.I will miss your advice on things like what anime to watch and good shows to try to get into.
Dylan you've been one of the best friends and bosses i have ever had, you take things in stride the most leaders put their hands up and walk away from instead of sticking around and toughing it out like you have done so for all these years. How you have remained sane is beyond me lol. you supported me when it came to tough things like the creation of LB, you're always there for people who need advice and to have somebody they can count on to try their damm best to direct them into the desired path. I remember you when you were that slightly chubby volunteer fireman who has grown into the EMT, Fireman and Fine gentlemen I know you turned into.
To the Pair of you i wish you the best......and all the random Stuff that comes up that makes you remember my dumb window licking self...You'll be missed.
You've been a best friend, a mentor, and a brother to me. You've been the most influential person to my KSI career and I somehow haven't been blacklisted lol. You've made this place run smoothly for 10 years, yet you always put your all in and never seem deterred. We owe a lot to you and I hope you know that we're thankful for all you've done. I still remember the first party I met you in. You were high on pain meds because you had recently had your shoulder surgery and didn't have to join, but you did. You spoke to me, a lowly captain like a person and valued my opinion. Every other experience I had had with leaders was always negative, or I felt belittled but not with you. I later came to find out that's just how you were, you cared about each and every member and valued us. It was from that moment on I knew I wanted to help you run this place and I'm happy and honored that I had the ability to.
For a long time I had never met rags, I heard about him, but I never met him. When I finally did, I realized that he wanted to blacklist me because I (unknowingly) changed my gamertag to a hall of famers old tag. Thankfully, he didn't lol. Rags has been a huge part of my development here, and I can confidently say that without Rags going full Dr. Phil for me a few times I wouldn't be here today. He cares about this place (sometimes too much) which has led to many arguments that lasted about 10 min before one of us messaged each other to apologize. He's not as in the spotlight as Fuzzy or ImPyyy etc. but he's just as important to KSI as anyone has been. You're a great mentor and friend, thank you!
