Stepping Down From Weasyl

on 14 April 2018 at 01:17:52 MDT

Hello everyone!

This likely isn't a surprise to some people, but I have stepped down (now officially) from Weasyl's team, and I'm no longer a Director.

Over the last few years I have had quite a lot of changes in my life and I haven't been able to dedicate the amount of time I previously had towards Weasyl. This was impacting my ability to contribute, and I did not want to be dead weight to the team. Stepping down in this case was the best choice for me.

I'm still going to be around, however, I won't be acting in any official capacity anymore! Please don't come to me if you need something fixed, 'cause I won't be able to help, other than point you in the right direction!

Weasyl was a great project to work with alongside many fantastic team members and I learned quite a lot over the past six and a half years. When I first started, I had some decent experience with moderation and running a website/community, however, there was a lot I never expected or thought I'd need to learn and pick up on! It was quite a fun learning experience, and definitely not one I regret!

A lot of fantastic friends have been made, both with fellow and previous staff, as well as people from the community we've built. Keep being awesome!

I look forward to seeing the site continue to grow and develop over the years to come!

    Hey, question.

    I know this probably isn't the place to post this, but aren't you concerned that releasing the source code for Weasyl will prompt attackers on the website? FurAffinity was recently taken down after hackers got a hold of the source code and deleted a ton of stuff.

      No worries! I don't mind answering any questions here!

      Going open source isn't necessarily a bad thing - it usually is if you rely on security through obscurity, however, this is not something we believe in. We are fairly confident with our site's structure and security that we feel it'd be more beneficial to release the code publicly for review/suggestions, as well as allow other developers to design improvements, which after review by our staff, could be implemented into the site.
