The State of Mark: Dreamwidth

[staff profile] mark
Something I've been meaning to write about, but there's never really a good time, so hey.

One of the best things about building a really awesome foundation on something is that, eventually, you can take a step back and let things continue to go and grow and feel entirely confident that things aren't going to go off the rails without you. Over the past six months I've been reducing my role on Dreamwidth and am recently at the point where I'm really not doing a lot on the site day to day.

I'm still helping out when really needed and I will continue to make myself available for middle-of-the-night site breakages and other problems that need immediate redress. However, I am not taking an active role in the management or development of the project on a day-to-day basis. For any of that, you should talk to [staff profile] denise and/or [personal profile] fu. They're awesome and I have complete confidence in the future of Dreamwidth with them at the helm.

I think that's the salient part.

Thank you so much for the work you've done on the site. <3

I've known for some time that this was going to happen, as you know, but it's still sad when it does happen. I wish you the very best.

To those wondering what'll become of Dreamwidth: Don't worry. As Mark says in this post, he's been reducing his roles bit by bit, but not without making sure someone else can do it. The servers are still in good hands. :)
