[F1] Announcement
« on: April 06, 2017, 12:28:14 am »
It is with the heaviest and saddest of hearts that I confirm the news tonight that with immediate effect I will be standing down as PlaystationGL director of Formula 1.

It has been an honour and privilege to give blood, sweat and tears to this amazing website and community, I have loved every minute of being your leader, friend and person to talk to.

To every person hated or adored I would like to say thank you, thank you for joining me in my dream that goes to each and every person who has signed up to take part in these Championships old, young.. new, seasoned.

I had one ambition that was to make this humble and modest website the biggest Playstation F1 League provider, from 7 members in 2010, we haven't done that bad hey ;).

I will be laying the foundations for next season with driver line ups and a calendar which has been provisionally set so whoever takes over will not go in blind and I'll always been on hand for advice.. I will probably not finish this season, I'm signed up for F4 for next season but that will now have a huge question mark over it.

A lot of things have happened in my personal life recently with a new job and being at home full time I could not do it to my wife and children anymore to be this dedicated to what I also love PSGL, Providing a safe place for Formula 1 fans to enthuse over their mutual interest; it is not how I wanted years of work and dedication to end but life isn't about fairytales; it doesn't always have a Disney script.

I always did my best to act with morales, principles and wearing my heart on my sleeve which at times got my fingers burnt.
If I had a weakness it was working too hard and being too determined, I always acted with what I believed was right for the site and its members and tried to cater for all; I did it all being me and I'll go out being me.

As I draw this emotional thread for me to a close, I would like to thank the unwavering support through thick and thin from Humanfish and TeddyUk they always have had confidence in me even in testing times and the sense of pride I got when I was given the title "Founder" was one of pride and achievement.

The admins of Formula 1 here at PSGL who served on the front line, in no particular order I would like to thank Irun, Bigc, Craig, JakeWarrior, MacPhee, Hilton, Dormanpalmer, ChristopherGore, mrgrumpy, wwfc, betrayer, sonam, webcam, elitebuzztigaz, craigpinchbeck, fabulouschicken, boywithnoface, RDO, mrstim, JakeLfc, qprbeasts, Ali, NPyne, musical-Venom, xRossi, philmcgivern, tranquillity, Zimmer, Ipswich, hulkenburger, Ulvaif, Iola, bobbydeacs, Canudoit, remcovengeance, Shortbread, FragglePaul.

Once again to everyone, thank you for joining and I hope you continue to support the greatest Formula 1 gaming website on the PlayStation.



No more fight left, only love. ❤️

It certainly is a end of a era and I want to be the first to thank Tom for his outstanding commitment to the site and his vision for the F1 community and has shaped the league into the best competitive one in the world.

I completely understand your reasons and I'm extremely proud of what lies ahead for you and for all your achievements since joining the site all those years ago.

Thank you Tom

Wow, that's a bit of a shock to the system, I didn't see this coming.

From day one when I joined psgl you were there helping guide me through and find my feet on the site and when racing, I'm internally grateful for it. You've done a Mega job here making the F1 leagues into what it is, not only in terms of the scale of the league's but the community side of it too setting the foundations for many many more years to come of online league racing through the F1 game. The F1 leagues would be nothing without you.

You're going to leave a huge void which will be a huge order for anyone to match. Thank you for everything you've done for me tej, I hope you stick around and keep in touch.

Would like to say thanks as well, though I'm a relatively new member I have seen the hard work that you have put in to not only make this the best place to race on PS4 but you have also built a community that respects each other's views and opinions. Who ever replaces you will have a tough task in filling your role.

Didn't see this coming at all!

Thanks tej for all you've done for the site and for all PSGL members. You've always believed in me ever since I first joined. You've been a credit to me and this site. I understand why you have to step down as personal life can take over things so good luck on the future. I'm very grateful for what you've done for me and the F1 community!

Good luck my friend, Jake

Really sad to hear that Tom. You will definitely be missed by admins after you leave. It's been an honor to know you and to work along side you for the entire time. Thanks for everything you done to PSGL and thanks for placing me into PSGL. It's been a great honor to know you. You will be missed by everyone here.

Good luck in your future and thanks again, Artur

Knew this day would come eventually, just didn't think it'd be this soon. :(

From where we started with just 7 members, to where we are now, you've done an absolutely amazing job over the years. Like Dave has said, this is going to leave a huge void, which is going to be extremely hard for whoever takes over the reigns. I have faith in whoever takes over that they'll do a stellar job though.

I just want to say a massive thank you on behalf of every single F1 member for everything that you have done for this site. You have given everything to this site over the years.... End of an era and you'll be missed.

Good luck in life my friend.

#ThankyouTom

Sad news, I didn't think there'd be any more high profile departures but here we go, there may be a few more...

Nevertheless, a big thanks for you hard work and dedication on the site. It's been a pleasure. While there have been some rocky patches but there were always was going to be.

A thanks for giving me the responsibility of building the F1 league to being the best league on the site and keeping me as admin for so long.

Every story has its ending. Here it is. Good luck.

Thank you for all you've done, Tej, for the site and for me personally, really appreciate it. Even since I joined a year and a half ago, the F1 section of the site has come along massively, mostly down to your work. I hope your life after PSGL is successful and enjoyable, and once again, thanks mate.

Just want to say a big thanks Tom. I completely understand your decision but over the last 7 years you have built an F1 gaming empire. To think you only started with 7 is insane. I am one of the newer members but I can tell how much effort has gone into this and it is no small feat. Thank you for showing faith in my by promoting me as Admin and also thanks for showing faith in my racing ability which has seen me in my very short time here progress from F4 to F3 and soon to be F1.

Thanks Tom 👍🏼
