      Well then, five months have passed, and I'm no longer eligible to reinstate. I submitted one reinstatement app in October because at the time I felt like I was comfortable with coming back, but now I realize I was getting ahead of myself.

      How have I been doing? When I resigned, one of my reasons was that I've been going through depression, and I felt like cutting loose from the staff team would help me focus on that. I'm not going to talk too much about it here, but all I will say is that I've finally put an end to it. I just wasn't myself having to keep thinking about what's been affecting me the most, and all I would feel is guilt without doing anything about it, especially during the holidays (even with my birthday coming up) - I most certainly don't want any of that in my head during those times.

      So, I've never been better since then. You might be reading this thinking that I might reapply for staff now that I'm feeling better. On the contrary, I don't see that happening anytime soon. I resigned to escape from one person on the staff team because the negative experiences I had with them were very similar to what I experienced in my life, and that made me realize that I shouldn't trust anyone if they continue to make me uncomfortable in the slightest. After what I've been through, it's not fair having to "relive" those IRL experiences with other people out to discomfort me.

      On top of this, a former trainee, who resigned recently, showed me explicit details on why they resigned. I'm not going to say who they are, but to recognize so much in not even a whole trainee trial left an impression on me. There were some things they showed me that stood out to me, and I did feel some level of discomfort from what I've seen. With where I am right now, I don't think it's worth risking to experience any of that at the moment. For now, I just want to focus on what's best for me.

      But yeah, that's all for now. Hoping for a better year and that you're all doing well <3

      If I were still staff, today would be my 5 and a half years on the team.

      It's been a month since I resigned from the staff team, and I want to follow up on how things have been going for me. I've been feeling better and happier about myself to have so much more time and freedom without putting myself in a worse position on the staff team, especially for escaping from certain troubles that I had. I've been keeping myself occupied with playing games/having fun with others to keep myself happy and focussing on my mental health, and I feel like I'm taking a step in the right direction.

      I want to go back to my thoughts on returning to the staff team for a moment. As much as I loved every moment of what I did for myself and others, I honestly don't see myself reapplying anytime soon. Setting my mental health aside, if you've read my resignation doc, one person who I've worked very closely with made me uncomfortable for far too long, and I realize there's no reward surrounding myself with them if that's only going to hurt me. It really makes me uncomfortable to hear that other people have gone through similar experiences, and I feel like escaping from them would do so much for me. On top of this, I just started my next semester, and I'd rather focus on that than think about returning to the staff team.

      Once again, thank you all for being supportive and understanding of me since my departure <3

        Nah, it's always been lowercased since I bought my account (although having a capital D for my name may look cool)

      Resigned from the Staff Team
      May 1st, 2015 - August 2nd, 2020

      I know, none of you were expecting this to happen. Sometimes I wish I wasn't resigning, but it's for a good cause. I was thinking about resigning for a few weeks, and I planned on it a few days before I stepped down.

      This post is coming in late because there were some points I added/removed from my doc, and also edited a few things after proofreading it all a few times. Real quickly, I just want to say thank you to everyone for making my experience what it is, it's been a pleasure getting to know and work with a lot of people who continue to make Mineplex a better place. There's a lot that I did and a lot for me to be proud of, and none of my efforts in making the staff team better for others will be forgotten about. I'll still be around, but not as much as before I don't think. If you want to add me on Discord, you may do so and I might add you back - you won't be able to message me unless I add you.

      As for my resignation doc, again, it's comprehensive and will take some time to read as I go into details for pretty much all of my points. There are some arguments/behaviors from some people on Mineplex where I spend most of my time responding to them, so this document will be more than just why I'm resigning, answering questions, and admiring my time on the staff team. There are some strong topics that I talk about, and there are some things that I say that not everyone has experienced as much or might not agree with, and that's okay. These are merely based on my experiences and perspectives on the behaviors that I haven't been in agreement with over the years.

        I slightly disagree with a little bit of what was said, but it was super interesting to hear your take on a lot of these issues.

        That aside, thank you for the last 5 years. As someone who joined the forums in 2016 (for a little bit) and then again in 2017, Firestar, MotherofPandas, and yourself were some of the most iconic staff members to me. I hope things work out for you.

      Thanks for everything Zach, whether it was being an awesome mentor to your mentees (or anyone else who needed it) or helping me out with my rules questions (which I had a lot of!). Best of luck in the future <3

      Thanks for all the work you've put into the staff team. Glad to have met someone who had the same major as me, even though you told me later you switched. Best of luck with your future endeavors!

      Thank you Zach for being my mentor. It’s sad to see you go after such a long time but I guess this is the new chapter of your life. Good luck with everything in the future

      Zach thanks for everything! I don't have a lot of moments with you but the main one that has stuck with me is when me and you were talking about the rule about Hypixel being un-filtered. I always had/have a passion for the rules and you do too (especially since you were RC) so it was awesome getting to discuss some changeswith you. Good luck in the future!
