For the past year, while there are several LEGO Ambassadors who belong to our community, I have been the official LEGO Ambassador for Classic-Castle. I have tried to represent the community to the best of my ability, and I have tried to be worthy of your trust.
It's been no secret that I have been mostly absent here on Classic-Castle outside of my Administrator and Ambassador duties. While I have not given up building Castle MOCs, it would seem I have a preoccupation with another theme. I have decided I will not turn down a nomination for my local club, TexLUG, if they so choose to want nominate me for another term, as there are only a few interested parties therein, and I feel TexLUG should be represented if given the chance.
The LEGO Ambassador program seems, in some places, to have become a popularity contest, but I do not wish that to be true here. While I have been a community leader in the realm of Castle, and a founder of this website, I feel the ambassadorship should go to the most qualified and community active individual with the best interests in the community in mind.
I have decided I am going to leave my future in being a LEGO Ambassador for Classic-Castle to you, the Classic-Castle community. If you feel I have been serving the community's interests and am the best choice to continue to do so, then I will accept. However, if you feel that there would be another better suited to the job because they are more active in this community then I will step down and not accept a future nomination.
I will bare no hard feelings if I am replaced as LEGO Ambassador for Classic-Castle. This community is far too important to selfishly hold on to some special title or position. Please speak your mind freely.
*On a personal note, I have a very short list of names that I would like to see representing this community, but I shall keep this list private (though I may nominate one or two if they are not nominated soon).
Give a man a fire and he'll be warm for a day.
Set a man on fire and he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
