      Dear Buddies,

      Please accept this post as a notice of my resignation from the position of Community Developer at Bossland Gmbh.

      Although this has been a difficult decision to make, I have been pursuing different roads and opportunities that I believe will help me reach my long-term career goals.

      In June 2015 I chose to not sign the new developer contract, rendering my products in a 'Grandfathered' state. By guidelines of the buddy store, this means existing users can keep using the product till the end of its support period, while new users can't see or buy it. Right now, with the second loss of my accounts and continuous friction with the buddy team, decrease in income, time and interest - I believe there's no reason to continue, and hope you will understand my reasons for moving on.

      As per the terms of my previous contract, my 18 months support period has already ended, but I will try and continue to support my grandfathered products in the following ways:

      (a) they will be moved to github, where users can contribute and do pull requests to maintain or enhance them in any way;​
      (b) they will become free for all users;​
      (c) the remote databases will remain online, as long as I (or roboto) have no need to reclaim those resources;​
      (d) I might still lurk around the forum from time to time;​

      I have enjoyed being part of the community and am thankful for the fun you have given me during my time here. I owe a great deal to some buddy devs and wish you all the best in future endeavors.

      Yours sincerely,

      Mirabis

      Always enjoined Leaves and Stars, both great CCs. Thanks for the good work you gave us - although we had to pay for it
      But your support has always been great, and I hope you will find some time, resources and delight working on your CCs

      Sad to see you leaving but I really appreciate the way you choose to leave. Putting your work up on github for people to develop or look at is very admirable.

      Respect your decision and thank you very much for making your work available publicly. Where can we get the GitHub link?

      Thanks again.

      Everything gets better when its open-source, instead of 1 mind we have many many minds.

      It is in the works, documenting and all - but there are some obstacles.

      The sources include certain bits of code that have been privately exchanged/traded amongst developers, who don't really want to share their current works publicly.
