Hey everybody. I need to take a break to figure things out.
Three main factors have contributed to my decision. By far most importantly, I have switched jobs. I now have hours that give me very little free time compared to what I used to have, and as much as I love the OGF community, my family comes first.
Secondly, I’ve encountered some difficulty in OGF itself. I’ve lost much interest in mapping since my territory request was turned down again. It seems that my computer simply cannot run JOSM, so I have to make edits very slowly using iD. Vertbourne took me many, many hours to make this way, and if it takes me that much blood, sweat, and tears to make a town as small and badly designed as Vertbourne, I can’t imagine ever creating something that an admin approves of.
And finally, it seems as if all my new diary entries are being deleted. If I can’t communicate with the community this way, none of my many silly questions can be answered (messages take weeks to be answered, if at all). I still don’t know who is deleting my diary entries or why.
