Skyfox Leaves The SCUMM Bar 24 Mar, 2002, 09:54 / 5 comments

Skyfox, founder of The Monkey Island SCUMM Bar and pretty much the guy who started the who MI online community announced that he will be leaving the site after 6 years of running and updating the site. Here's an exerpt of his update:
Well, looks like this is it folks... after 6 years in the Monkey Island web business, it's time for me to take a back seat. Both this site and #monkey-island will be under the (ruthless) control of RemiO, he's done a fantastic job of late.. and he will not let us down. (no pressure mate!)
We here at Mojo wish Skyfox the best in all his future endeavers and especially wish to thank him for starting the MI community, because if he hadn't, Mojo would probably not be around today. Good luck mate!

On a personal note, I'd just like to say that back in the day (God I'm not that old am I?) The ScummBar was THE Monkey island site, and still is. Anything MI you wanted you got there - Including the inspiration to build the site that eventually became Mojo.

Sky has been a friend for all this time (Mojo is 5 this summer) and i'm sure shall remain one.. Also I bet we will still see his face around here for some time to come. Enjoy yerself Ian! - Spaff.

    I really didn't expect there to be this much fuss, I only wanted to let people know why I won't be around much. I'm really quite touched!

    What exactly motivated Sky to leave? He was a good guy at the best of times, and a sore bastard at the worst. But he's an all around upstanding fellow. Good on ya mate.
