The 'Shroom:Issue XLVI/Director's Notes
by Stooben Rooben (talk)
Well, another year for The 'Shroom has come and gone. A lot of things have changed this year, but not as much as I wanted. Since this is my last issue as Director (and probably as a writer for The 'Shroom as a whole), I just have a few things to say.
Firstly, I'd like to thank the entire 'Shroom staff (Tucayo, SMB, 2257, Ralphfan, and Marioguy1) for the amazing work they've done this year. I was absent a lot this year, and without them, The 'Shroom would have probably died. You all have done great and deserve a pat on the back. (Honestly, you deserve more than that, but I'm too cheap to hand out anything else.) Most of all, though, I'd really like to thank Tucayo and SMB. You two have done so much for The 'Shroom, I don't even know where to start thanking you.
Secondly, I'd like to apologize for not being as good of a Director as I should have been...as I promised to be. I had a lot of plans set last year, but I hardly carried any of them out. I know SMB will do a fantastic job as Director this year, though. I have a lot of faith in him, and you should too. To that end, I'd like to congratulate SMB on his winning the election. Best of luck to you, bud.
Lastly, I'd like to encourage you to keep reading and writing for The 'Shroom. This paper still has a lot of potential; please try to do whatever you can to make it as good as it can be.
I guess that's it. I don't really know what else to say. Maybe I should give you some friendly advice...
- You'll always be responsible for what you do until you become a celebrity.
- Psychiatrists are just people who are jealous because the voices don't talk to them.
- Violence won't cure anything except your need to be violent.
- If you aim for nothing, you're sure to hit your mark.
- You're unique, just like everyone else.
sdfgsdfgsdfg, why aren't I shutting up yet? I think I have too much blood in my caffeine system... — Stooben Rooben 15:26, 16 January 2011 (EST)
Hello readers, I am for the last time your extremely grateful Sub‐Director Tucayo, and welcome to my last Sub‐Director Notes!
I’ll change this from what you normally expect to see here, to a goodbye message.
Two years and 7 months of working for The ’Shroom are coming to an end. 32 issues of writing 2+ sections per issue, including 25 issues of being in the Leading Staff. During this time I wrote over 10 different sections, going from Fake News, to Fun Stuff. From Pipe Plaza to Art & Music. And of course, the main sections. It was a pleasure and an honor for me to serve The ’Shroom during all this time, as writer, as Director, as Sub‐Director and as Fun Stuff Director. The ’Shroom is what I love most on the MW, what made me join, and what kept me here until now.
And I can say I did what I wanted to do; to return The ’Shroom to the glory it had lost. But of course, I didn’t do this on my own, and there are people I want to thank. Blitz (Glowsquid), for letting me be part of The ’Shroom. Stooby, for trusting me with the power he gave me. To the amazing staff I worked with, because without them, nothing would have been possible, Stooby, 02, Xpike, Ralphfan, Super Mario Bros., YellowYoshi127, Yoshario, 2257, Marioguy1 and P Trainer. To the writers, for all the effort you put into each issue, you make The ’Shroom what it is. And to the readers, who supported us all this time, reading us every month, participating in our activities and never losing faith. Thanks.
Now, you know I love surprising you. Well, I’ll do the same one more time. This is a decision I made in the last week. I love The ’Shroom too much to leave it, so despite the fact that I am retiring, I will continue to write the Mystery Images section of the Fun Stuff, since I just can’t take my name off the list, and it is a section that doesn’t require much time. Oh yes, you’ll still see me every issue.
To end this, I want to congratulate SMB on becoming the new Director. I see you as a brother (even if I am a koopa and you aren’t…) so I know The ’Shroom is in good hands, and that you will do everything to improve The ’Shroom Smiley Congratulations and good luck too to your Core Staff. If you ever need advice, please just ask me.
Without more, I say goodbye to all of you. BYE! Thanks for everything, and keep reading The ’Shroom.
