    Default Character Planner - Announcement

    Hey all,

    I have an announcement of some import regarding the planner. After some eight years developing and maintaining the program, I have decided to step down as the lead designer on the project. Mainly this is due to time constraints and my desire to move on to other projects. Dragon and I have discussed this, and he will be taking over in the lead capacity. I hope you all will give him the same support (and bug reports!) that you've given to me all these years. Of course, he has been intimately involved in the planner for many years now, and has been integral in the design and coding of the new 5.xx version from the ground up. I leave the planner in his very capable hands.

    That is not to say I'm leaving the team altogether. On the contrary, I will continue to be involved heavily with the coding and design of the program (I worked on it just this morning). Don't worry, I will still be around. However, from this point forward, Dragon will be making final decisions and scheduling releases and all that.

    It has been both an honor and a privilege to have worked with you all as the lead programmer of the character planner, and I look forward to continuing on in my new role. If you have any questions or concerns, let us know.

    A very big thank you for all the time and work you've put into both the planner and leading the team. It's an invaluable resource. Good to know you'll still be working on it.

    Its time there was a new forum title. Legendary founder I think would not be unjustified.

    It's a nice start...I say the next Fatespinner (Anauroch?) should be named Rahn. Seems appropriate since you spend your points and build your character there

    Thank you for your effort, time, and sacrifices for the program Ron.

    At a bare minimum, you can always add this program and the work you did to support it to your resume.

    It's always a shame when the hammer of poor design choices smashes the fun of player tactical adaptation.

    Dang I saw this in the dev tracker and though "OMG did Turbine hire Ron & Co. or something!!!" than I read this, sad for sure but I'm glad your not entirely leaving Ron and I'm sure Dragon.Star will do just fine

    Default Thank You, Ron!!!

    Thanks so much for all the time and effort you put into the planner. It has been invaluable to me in my time in DDO. It will be a shame if Turbine doesn't give some kind of official recognition as well - you've earned it.

    Awww, thanks everyone. You're good wishes are much appreciated. And THANKS Cordon for the new title. I will wear it with pride

    Everyone wish Dragon good luck in his new role. He'll do well with the job, I have no doubt.

    Your Planner has been as much a part of DDO as the game itself, for myself and I'm sure many others. Thank you so much for your hard work. I am glad to read you will be staying with the project.

    Good luck Dragon.
