    The End of an Era

    After almost 6 years of service as a Smod and over 8 years in total on WC staff, Fuji Vice has expressed his desire to step away from WC for the time being and therefore stepping away from his staffing duties. From his deep and insightful movie reviews in Fujifilm, to smashing Live Discussion records as TNA mod, to running KOWC campaigns promising FUN times for all, to taking the baton from Booker T and running hundreds of Fave Five threads on every topic under the sun, Fuji clearly left his mark on the forum as one of the greatest members in our history. Behind the scenes he was just as hard working as he was on the public side of the forum, always available to talk shop and discuss any major changes to the site and not shying away from being the 'bad cop' when he needed to be.

    I'd like to take the opportunity to thank Fuji for his tireless hard work and quality contributions these last 8 years. On a personal note, we joined the staff here on the same exact day in 2011 and he's been an ever present by my side all these years trying to make this forum as good as it can be. It's a thankless job at times and to do it for this long is a hell of an achievement. It won't feel the same without him. He was a Walking Tall 10/10 Staff member.

    'Tis a bittersweet day. I go way back with Fuji as well and he's always been an outstanding member of this forum from day one. His presence will be missed. But on the other side of the coin, it's always a good idea to step away from this machine whenever you can and recharge your batteries mentally. This is a well earned break for you, Fuji. Live it up and we'll be waiting for you whenever you're ready to get back in the game!

    I'm not gonna write up some big speech cause I doubt this'll be the last time I speak to him, but enjoy a well earned break Fooj, you deserve it.

    Re: The End of an Era

    Certainly in the discussion for best WC member ever, right up there with the very best of them during my time. While it's sad to see him step down, sometimes it is for the best if you aren't getting the joy from it. But I hope this isn't goodbye from him on the forum forever as he's a great member and top bloke.

    Ah I remember the days of Fuji telling me off for something. Good Times, good times.

    Definitely someone that set standards on being a good mod and poster in general. Take your well deserved break.

    Oh fuck how did I end up the senior Smod.

    Was always an honor working alongside you Fuji and I looked up to you a ton in my early days both as a member and staffer. You'll certainly be missed in the staff room and on the site itself should you make your absence felt. Thanks for all the FUN~.

    =(

    All the best, Fuji. Without a doubt one of the best members of WC history. Funny, smart, influential, undoubtedly handsome, the man has it all, and his impact on the forum is undeniable.

    Don't be a stranger, man. Take all the time you need or want, but know that WC will always be a second home for you.

    I knew this was coming too but it’s still a bummer, you’ve become one of my favorite people on WC and a good friend. You deserve this time away though after all that you have done for this site.

    Keep in touch and don’t be a stranger.

    Re: The End of an Era

    On one hand, I'm really sad for this day to come. Even right away whenever I would see your name I couldn't help but imagine Mr. Fuji and Don Muraco. Then obviously you being as cool as you are, you have done a lot of good. Am really hopeful this break is not for long and things can be back to normal.

    On the other hand, I'm sure you're gonna travel to somewhere way cooler than I've ever been too so I can't feel THAT bad for you. Have some fun, relax, and catch you on the flipside, Fuji-man.

    Re: The End of an Era

    What a shame not only a huge miss to the staff but to the site as a whole. Agreed with Shock that he has to be up there as one of the greatest members of all time.

    Hopefully you’ll be back sooner rather than later Fuji. In the meantime take care of yourself.

    Fuji is a cool dude, I will miss him dearly. The forum will not be the same without his presence.
    Happy Holidays Fuj!

    Re: The End of an Era

    I've always found Fuji to be a really cool guy, but understand we all need time to rest up every now and again. Make the most of your break, and make sure you come back when you're ready, 'cos this place won't be the same without you. And I say that as someone who hasn't overlapped with you a huge amount, so those who have I'm sure will feel even stronger. Take it easy, dude.

    Where you at Fooj? Why change a habit huh?

    Hopefully some time away will allow you to be in a better place, so I hope to see you back around in the future as we need someone to keep those burritos coming.

    Re: The End of an Era

    Just want to say thanks to those who’ve posted in here. As those in the mafia game know (now, I guess ) I still plan to be active in there as much as possible, so if you’re playing (or if you haven’t yet and want to give it a shot) please know you’ll be able to find me there.

    After certain incidents this week, I just need to take a step back from the day to day activities of helping to run this place. I’ll still pop in occasionally and will endeavour to participate in Pawsbear’s Fave Five threads and some of Necro’s movie discussions. Other than that, I’ll try to stay in touch with each of you individually through PM’s, if you feel like chatting that is, and feel free to not be strangers.

    Hopefully I’ll have some more time to devote to WC come March/April of the new year, once I hammer out some work related stuff. Until then, I hope you all have as many wonderful moments on the forum as I’ve shared with you over the years, and, if I’m not here on the day itself, a Merry Christmas to you and yours and a heartfelt thanks for all you’ve given me over the years.

    Your pal,

    FV
