Thank You and See You Later

Hi Everyone,

Lyra here for most probably my last post here in AP. It's a long time coming and I'm sure some of you aren't surprised, but I've decided to step down from actively maintaining the community. I'll still be the owner and one of the maintainers, but as I've said, I won't be that active anymore. From this day forward, Dekka will be the main maintainer of AP, and I hope that you guys give her the support and the encouragement you have given me.

To this day, I still can't believe all that we have achieved with AP. We have recovered so many subbed videos, and I'm sure that you guys will continue doing that. I remember that when I first started AP, so many people were eager to tell me of all that could go wrong, and that this project wouldn't be successful... but guess what? 3000 members later and hundreds of subbed files reuploaded... Hey, we didn't do too bad didn't we?

This only goes to show what this fandom is capable of if we just work together.

Also, I'd like to take the time to apologize to everyone. I know I wasn't the best maintainer - I was always disappearing for long stretches of time, and for that, I am truly, truly sorry. I have no excuses to make, and I accept that the 'hiatus' of this community is mostly my fault. I do know that I am leaving you in capable hands, and I'm excited to see this little project of mine - of OURS - continue to move forward.

So... here I am, dropping by to say thank you... and goodbye see you later. Should you need to get in touch, email me at lyra.gill@gmail.com, or tweet me at @lygill. Working with all of you has been my pleasure, and while there were a number of hate comments and messages, most of you have been nothing but supportive. For that, I will always, always, always be thankful. This fandom, and most especially Arashi, have given me so much.

Again, thank you.

All the best,
Lyra
