Hey!

So, this is just a quick post to let y’all know that I am taking what I’m calling a mental health month away from the site for the duration of August.

Without going into details, it’s been clear for a while now, and I should have done this a long time ago, but I need a break. I know I haven’t been a lounge mod for very long but in the time that I have been I’ve had a hand in hosting so many things and don’t get me wrong, I love it but I’ve reached a point where I’m just completely drained and not excited to get stuck into the next big event, actually I lowkey dread it and I’ve been struggling to kinda get out of my head when I come faced with an issue lately. I’m someone that puts their whole self into everything they do and that often ends up blowing up in my face laugh.gif I know at the end of the day “it’s just a site” but y’all are all real people, who I'm actually friends with (for the most part wink.gif) so I can’t help but get invested in things. I love this community so much and without sounding soppy etc, I just want to do a good job as a moderator and make the lounge a place where you all want to hang out. I won't lie, a lot of you were overly critical of some of the lounge mods between the feedback forms, teams and the rate and I felt like I got the brunt of a lot of people's frustrations where I perhaps shouldn’t have. I don’t take things lightly, especially when people bring my character into question or say I’m solely responsible for them feeling a certain way. Of course that’s only partly why I’m making the decision to step down as a moderator for the month. Again, I don’t want to go into details but I’m just not in the right head space to do what I feel I should be doing as a moderator right now and I need some time away from BuzzJack to just re-collect myself so I can come back fresh and hopefully with a more positive and motivated outlook. I’ve had this break planned for a while now, and I have been counting the days until I can jump ship for a bit tbh. I’ve considered stepping back before but there’s always been something happening that I feel I’m needed for and I don’t want to leave my co-mods in the lurch or let them down which is why I’ve never seen it through until now.

So, my solution to that is to have someone fill in for me temporarily. I feel so much better about abandoning y’all for a bit knowing there’s someone there to pick up where I left off. That someone is going to be Burbe! cheer.gif It was a no brainer that he should be the one cover me as a mod, as I’m sure you guys will agree. I’m actually so looking forward to seeing what he’ll do with the place as I know he’s got a few things up his sleeve. I promise you’ll be in good hands kink.gif

Thank you to the management team for allowing this to happen, it means a lot to know I've got the support of you guys and of course my co-mods in taking some time off. I really need it and I don't think I'd be able to stay away if Ben wasn't filling in for me :') That’s all I wanted to say really! Welcome to the Lounge mod team Ben TEMPORARILY!!! And I’ll see y’all in September angel.gif

Side note: I’ll still be voting in BJSC/Reviewing in CD Swap as those are commitments I made before posting this but I’m not going to be posting at all.

I hope this break will be fruitful for you Lindsey (and as much as I look forward to burbe being a comod for the next month I do hope you are back in full force for September having not been a Lounge mod for too long!)

Lounge mod life can be hectic, the amount of events there are a lot. I am looking forward to seeing posts from the new refreshed Lindsey, I am hoping you will change your username more often when you come back to the Buzz!

What does BRB stand for, plus are you still taking part in this BJSC with voting and everything?

EDIT Is Lindsey even in this BJSC? unsure.gif

Best of luck Lindsey, everyone needs a break from things every now and then. It's why I love my long 6 week holiday from work.

Love the double meaning, as Brb sounds like it is also short for Burbe who is filling in for you! I actually thought this thread was about Burbe before I clicked on it, like a 'things you like about Burbe thread!'.

Enjoy your break Lindsey! heart.gif


And I guess Burbe's an ok replacement for now. Also if anyone's wondering I'm now temporarily taking up Lindsey's Rock and Indie mod position (I have powers and things) so that's not left unattended as well!

Of course the best thing about this is I don't have to deal with that pesky edit line yasss. happy.gif
