WoW - Merry Christmas and Happy Winter Veil, r/wow! (and farewell)r/WoW!

I hope that the holidays find you all happy and healthy. I hope you're all progressing (or finished, Limit friends) Castle Nathria, and I hope you're enjoying Shadowlands as much as I am. I hope your Christmas, if you celebrate, is filled with good cheer, laughter, and kindness. If you celebrate a different winter holiday, I hope your celebrations are joyous.

If you don't want to read the rest of this long post I've included a tl;dr.

tl;dr: aphoenix out, mic drop.

Effective Jan 1, 2021, I will be stepping down as a moderator for r/WoW. If you are someone that contacts me directly for reddit related things, you can send a modmail to the team instead – it is the best way to keep in contact.


If you don't care about a rambling "thanks" style farewell, then you can skip the rest!

Head mod changes don't happen that frequently around here – the last one was about 6 years ago, and was a bit more tumultuous than this amicable departure. I've been a moderator here for a little over 8 years, which is just over half the time I've spent on reddit. When I became a moderator, there were around 30,000 people in this subreddit, and now there's over 2 Million. There have been a lot of changes in that time; if you're interested in them, let me know and I'll do the rambly old man and tell you about things from back in the day. If there's anything at all you want to know about r/wow moderation, feel free to ask.


I met a lot of great people as a result of being a moderator here. There's too many to list, but I want to specifically call out a few people that I consider friends that I wouldn't know if I'd never been a mod here.

u/Mattonomicon (formerly known as Araxom) – thanks for always lending a helping hand. Thanks for the tacos and the frisbee and all the great info on hot dogs.

u/Vusys – thanks for teaching me a thing or two about css, and having and expressing a different perspective on moderation. Thanks for the cards!

u/DesMephisto – thanks for letting us do something cool with you on r/wow and teaching us about accessibility in gaming. Thanks for the beers and the guidance and the kindness at Blizzcon.

u/Ex_iledd – thanks for taking over this crazy place! Thanks for always being introspective and always trying to be kind.

There are tons of other people to mention and thank for their kindnesses, friendship, and help over the years: sporkicide, glaxigrav, perculia, kyat, caelo, yit, roboticide, sharkraptor, flapsnapple, coan, bornakk, lhavelund, flux, gumdrops, thunderclaww, taffer, menagese, turik, xingua, ibo, deviouskat, all the r/wow mods past and present, wowcj mods, other blizzard sub mods, other reddit mods, other blizzard people, other reddit admins. If I didn't mention you and you think I should have, leave a message!
