Dear FMC Members/Staff,
I am writing this to all members and staff on FortuneMC so all of you can get this information at the same time as everyone else. This message is just to say I am stepping down from Owner on FortuneMC and my reasons, so please read them all carefully.
The first reason why I’m stepping down from FortuneMC is that I have school work to do. As I am in Year 10 and am preparing hard for my GCSEs, I will be stepping down from the server. I am really dedicated to preparing for the exams in May 2021, as you can tell by my playtime and activity on both Discord and Minecraft. Why would I choose to be on my server 24/7, improving it for no reason at all instead of dedicating to my GCSEs 24/7 to improve my future?
The second reason is related to the first reason, but it’s because I literally have no time to work on the server. As a result of constant and too much homework, and revising really hard for my mock exams and GCSEs for both this year and next year, I will not have any time to work on FortuneMC. In addition to this, as I am not legally allowed to work, I cannot work for money for the server, so I will be pretty useless to keep FortuneMC running.
The third reason is, with no doubt, because of Shoot. I have wanted to make a statement talking about Shoot in a totally different topic, but this is how I'm going to say it here instead. Shoot (you should know him as Shootboy444, slenderbrine98, and other stupid fake accounts), and his best friend Caramel061, have a great amusement in breaking servers that they were ex-staff on. Since Shoot started being staff on the server, he has consistently abused his permissions, and honestly, I should have IP-Banned him ages ago for it, as well as his alt limit of at least 10 accounts, which is really obscene. Honestly, over the past few months, I have started to hate Shoot more and more and to be honest, I couldn't be happier that he is now banned from FortuneMC. He was bound to get permanently banned from FMC.
The fourth reason for leaving the FMC Staff Team is because of my mental health. As everyone or most people know, I definitely don't have the best mental health on the server. In the past few weeks or maybe the past few months, it definitely without a doubt has been getting worse and worse over time. I have started doing a lot more things and getting into more routines, and scheduling posts on social media so I can have a break from social media without anyone knowing and everything else to improve my mental health, yet it hasn't actually worked.
As a conclusion, I have decided to give Murtoise the server whilst I leave the FortuneMC Staff Team. Yes, I know it's probably not the right time as we need people to build for Season 4, but it feels like the right time for me to leave. I will be giving Murtoise all of the passwords to the FortuneMC Twitter, Console, Tebex and any other's that I forget, as well as giving him ownership of the Discord Server and Minecraft Server. From now on, I will not pay for the server to run and will no longer work for the FortuneMC Staff Team.
Thanks for everything FMC, you've been a great 7 months and 7 days (on Discord). I hope Murtoise treats you with more love than I ever did. I will continue to be the Head of Media.
Thanks for reading this announcement,
-Staff 6th July 2019-13th February 2020
-Head of Media 6th September 2019-Present
