For the past week I have been trying to decide how best to make this post, It is very hard for me to do but it must be done.

 

Recently my youngest son was diagnosed with Autism, at this point they have not gotten anymore specific then this. This is a major change for everyone in my family, and for the time being I need to focus as much time as I can to adjusting both my family and myself to making sure my son is getting everything he needs to live as normal a life as possible.

 

My already limited free time is now all but non-existent, and what time I have to play games will be limited to mornings after I drop the kids off at school. As such I have made the tough decision to "Hang Up" my virtual paint brushes, at least for now. I have been making skins for WoWP since long before it's release, in fact I started during the Closed Beta Test period, and over the last several years have painted around 200 individual skins, many of which have been "retired" for one reason of another.

 

I currently have a couple skins that are either completed or have very little left to do. I will be trying to get them out over the next several days as time allows. Once these are finished I will no longer be painting skins, at least for the time being. I do not plan to stop playing, although I will be online even less then before. I hope to be able to return to painting in the future, as I get as much pleasure from it as I do from actually playing the game, if I didn't I would not have devoted so much time to it as I have over the last 3+ years.

 

So with that said, it's been a pleasure trying to improve the game for everyone, and I hope to see you all in the virtual skies.

You are appreciated here Hawk. I'm sure you'll get your groove on and make it happen better than you think right now. Life just threw you a curve and knowing you you'll learn to hit it good.

I'll be wishing you and the family well brother.

you oughtta see it sometime, it's a sight. A big plane like a '52. VRROOM! There's jet exhaust, fryin' chickens in the barnyard.

Hawk, family always, ALWAYS, comes first.  The contributions you've made to the community, and the game in general, are beyond the comprehension of the average person.

Focus your energies on what's important, and the rest will take care of itself.

All the best to you and your family.  We'll see you around Brother. 

 

Peace,

Skip

Thanks for all the work you have put in and recently with helping with my Avro Arrow project (to be completed soon).  Take care of your son and family, you will find that when the most important things are looked after, there is always time to free up to work on the things you like.

 

Thanks again, as always I am available to flight if you wish.

Thank you everyone.

 

This is truly an amazing community we have built here, and I can say I have a certain amount of pride having been here since very early on. The folks on these Forums are in a way a lot like a family, they don't always see eye to eye, but when it comes right down to it, we are there for each other, even if it's only moral support.
