I have been on gizmo for over a year now, and I've watched it rise and up and nearly completely collapse. I cannot imagine how it makes the owners feel, but they have expressed a distaste for the current state. We have come to the decision that I will be taking over as CEO and yoshi and Mario will be resigning. Joining me as owners are static and buddycoco.
In order to eliminate costs due to the servers current state, we will be dropping kitpvp and skyblock, with the possibility of skyblock returning. At the time of writing this, the website is down. I hope by the time this is posted to the staff I have that problem fixed. I have promised 3 months of uptime, which will only be extended if we make upwards of 120$ a month. Mario and yoshi have been welcomed to stick around as global admins to assist with the transition. I am actually pretty sad that this change is happening as I am not totally sure I can save gizmo. However I am going into this confidently and I will stick with it until the end. I want to thank yoshi and Mario for the last year I've had here, it's been awesome. Gizmo has been a staple in my life for so long I can't imagine playing Minecraft and not being on gizmo. I know I've had some issues with the community but I feel everyone should know, that is how I am by nature. I actually like everyone in the community quite a bit, it's why I became staff. I hope to see you all on the other side of this transition, which will be completed by the 27th. We are all friends here fighting for the same thing and we will have to work together to make this work.
Hey guys, uhh well throughout the years that I've been on Gizmo, which would be since early 2012, obviously a lot of things have changed. But I never once really thought I would ever get up to be an owner. I've been a lot of other ranks here, most was along side Crigorh. I remember when I first joined, which was back when the other servers and a network for gizmo wasn't even thought of at all yet, Me and Crigorh ware both trying hard to get guard, back when we did get it I remember Paul promoting both at the same time in-game after he told me to get crigorh on. I don't remember about Crigorh, but I had made it to A-Guard but was soon demoted due to a staff reset. Soon after that, moderator and admin ranks had came out and me and Crigorh both applied and got it together, we both went off to admin and he got Op, but I was demoted due to apparent abuse, but I won't get into that rant, anyway, I had quit after that, mostly mad, and me and Gizmo continued to fight. But soon after that I went to check out zombies and noticed my old really good friends from gizmo were staff there, so I played there for a while and liked it. A bit later after playing alot, I tried to apply, and Paul had said I couldn't become staff because they didn't trust me anymore, which I can obviously see why due to what had happened, but it still amazes me that after all that and everything that has happened in the last few years, I'm now an owner. Also I know me and Aveng have fought alot for a while, but we both agreed to put that past us for the betterment of Gizmo.
