Micromass is retiring

  1. Apr 8, 2013 #1
    Micromass is retiring :(

    I am sad to announce that Micromass is leaving the PF staff. It is on his own accord for personal reasons. This loss will be very heavy to PF. We will certainly miss his leadership and project developments. He has put in an amazing amount of effort. It was a real pleasure building PF with him. I believe he has plans to stick around, but with whatever he chooses we wish him the very best! A new mentor will be announced shortly.

    Unacceptable, at least on the long term. On the short term, we'll have to find a makeshift solution. :-(

    Thanks for all the help so far micromass. I'm talking with the voice of hundreds of students :) As long as you don't leave PF there is no catastrophe.

    It will be dystopic, if not catastrophic, though. Micromass has been invaluable in mentor capacity. :-(

    You will always remain my PhysicsForums husband, micromass. Always. :D

    However, you will still be on the forum so see you in the chat. :-)

    Sure is, babe. And micromass knows that severe punishment will occur if Speaker's rulings aren't obeyed.

    Hey!!! He can't leave yet. He hasn't been around long enough to be vested in the PF retirement plan. He will be penniless. Oh, wait, I forgot. That is the PF retirement plan.

    Good work Micromass and good luck with whatever's next.

    I had to check the post date of this, just in case this is the thread necro'ed from a week ago.

    Sorry to see you go Micro.

    But really, we let him go when we discovered he really is a 16yr old High School student. He's been faking it. :devil: :rofl:
