The message pasted below is the exact message I posted in Slack for all the other staff to see. No changes.

"Hi there! Today, for my second and final time, I will be resigning on MCGamer. Not going to post a long message about why I’m resigning as based on the messages I’ve been posting on the forums and Slack lately, y’all should know.

I am not 100% confident that MCGamer will come back up, but even if it does, this situation made me realize that there is no point in staffing a server (in my opinion) where the Owner of the server does not bother to socialize with the Mod’s, the guys and gals keeping this server running. That’s a bad, pit feeling in my stomach.

I can only commend the S—r Staff and Administrator’s for doing such a great job of trying to not only do their jobs, but fill in as the Owner, as clearly; we’re missing an Owner right now.

There is no reason as to why no announcement has not been made from either Gideon or Chad, or either of our “on call” developers. That’s unbelievable to think that a server with well over 4 million registered users, average of 1,000 concurrent players, etc. cannot get the stuff together to even inform the community.

Also, I want to say thank you to everyone for an unbelievable experience and to the S—r’s for believing in me, and all the Mod’s for keeping this place up.

While I really do want to my job here and serve for the community, I cannot do that if our own Owner doesn’t want to do that. It’s a disgrace.

Thanks for the amazing experience and I’ll stick around if anyone is ever interested in having a discussion.

Realized :flight: is a much better use of my time!"

Now, onto an actual message just for the forums:

I've been a pretty open Mod, I've always shared my opinion, I try not to hold back. Lately I've noticed that not many other people in the staff team like that about me, and people have tried to distance themselves because I share my opinions and don't always agree with the most civilized option, such as being hopeful. I can't be in an organization like that; so I'm out!

If you ask me for my true opinion, there's a pretty much below 10% chance the server is coming back. From what it seems like, this was the planned end by Chad and the others, which is why they are not acknowledging this downtime/issue.

So sad to see you leave Preston. This is exactly why I also decided to leave. I hope that I can find a new server to help out with. The SR Staff did an amazing job filling in without an Owner to help out. I hope we can stay in contact :( Ly

Preston, I am sad to see you go. You were one of the hardest working moderators I have witnissed, and it's a shame you're leaving. I do agree, I miss MCSG and I find it sad that Chad is gone. I, along with many others, will return to this once-great community in the future if it gets better. Otherwise, I am sad to say MCSG is a goner.

It's sad to see you go Preston, I'll definitely miss you! However, do hit me up when you're flying near me so I can get a ride on your plane. ;)

Before I quote the posts and stuff, I want to reiterate a point in my thread. In my thread I said that the Admin's did a great job running the server on their own and dealing with the situations that faced them. Yannick and NagolGames and the Sr. Mod's did amazingly filling in as our Owner while he's been gone...lol.

Sincere thanks to the Sr. Staff, y'all don't credit them as much as you should.

Let's definitely keep in contact man! Was such a great pleasure having the privilege to me your Mod Buddy and I'm so proud of everything you accomplished even if you were here for a short time.

Good bye fellow mineman, thanks for your hard work!
Thank you as well for everything Shai! :)

I hope we stay in touch c:

Thanks a ton for the kind words Berk. I'm definitely not the hardest working around, but I'm so happy that you noticed my passion for MCGamer. :D

I hope there is a community in the future, though. :'(

Thank you!

Thanks Debs! You've been a tremendous friend and overall I think you and I had some stellar conversations. Have a ride anytime it's just roughly $1,350/hour we're actually in the air. Lol I'm kidding but yeah I definitely want to meet up with some online friends and treat them to a flight but my Dad isn't too fond of that idea lmao.

Thank you for your hard work <3
Thank you Luke! Congrats again on trial, I'm confident you'll do as good as you can based on the state of the network.

Thanks for your hard work, you were amazing staff member! :(
Thanks for the compliments! It was great talking to you earlier today and having our first convo. :)
