I am not sure if this requires a new thread, so I am posting here.
For what many will soon know by reading Fornad's response to the following thread:
In order to distance myself and my actions from ArdaCraft as a whole, I am mutually accepting my demotion and stepping down as a builder and as a project lead in Annuminas. @Finrod_Amandil while apologies will never be enough, I want to apologize to you and MCME, not just for my sake--in fact--only for the sake of ArdaCraft which does not deserve to be slandered by my actions. While I do not know how long the period of time will be necessary to take this step back, I know it's only appropriate to own up to my mistakes and ensure the success of both communities.
Best of luck to everyone.
