So, I have been working since late November to finish the pending stuff that
required my personal touch, and making arrangements to leave this position.
When I leave, the TSR Online Coordinator position will be no more. All TSR
webmaster functions will be handled by WotC webmaster Alex Von Hochtritt.
I am applying for a designer position in TSR creative services; I think I
have a good chance of making it - they're pleased with my previous design
work, and they know I know the games. Interviews are next week, and I
should have a decision by the week after that. Whether or not I get this
position, I'll no longer be in the Online team - I'll either be over in TSR
CS, or seeking employment elsewhere. Wish me luck. :)
I want to state that this has nothing to do with any interpersonal relations
with the Web Team or any other WotC employees. I have enjoyed working with
all of them, and they've made my transition from Wisconsin to Washington
(and from "lone gunman" to a team member) very easy. They're a great bunch
of people, and I hope to continue working with them in the future.
The internet and TSR's involvement in it has changed quite a bit since I
joined the company. I like to think that I had some positive effect on
both, no matter how small. Having met the two goals I set for myself when I
applied for the TSR OC position, it's time to move on.
I'm not making this post to elicit any sympathy or to get anyone to beg me
to stay - I just wanted everyone informed of what's going on and to give
people some advance notice of some of the possible changes to TSR Online.

Especially in these difficult times, you have done proud.
Can't say I am sorry to see you go but I do wish you luck in your new job.

Good luck, Sean. Let us know how this all turns out.

I hope you plan to continue your participation in this newsgroup. It's
helpful to have someone inside TSR contributing to the discussions here.
And if it turns out that you're not a TSR insider anymore, stick around
anyway and help us keep the New TSR honest.
Sorry to see you leave the online team, The TSR page is so much nicer
than the WOTC page.
Hopefully we'll see your name in the TSR supplements of the future

Surely you are just being polite? I mean the web page ain't anywhere near as
nice as the WoTC page... course this is personal preference. I think the use
of frames and organization on thier site is much better.
