For detail about me, see [].

I have prepared a lightning-talk-style presentation about WikiCreole,
it's for now available at

//Fill a cup to its brim and it is easily spilled;\\
Temper a sword to its hardest and it is easily broken;\\
Amass the greatest treasure and it is easily stolen;\\
Claim credit and honour and you easily fall;\\
Retire once your purpose is achieved - this is natural.//

I have come to a realization that I don't help Creole with my contributions here anymore -- rather I put away its maturity by chasing after some impossible perfection. I have put more than enough input on this wiki, and there is no need to further repeat oneself. It's time to stop arguing and fighting and implement what we actually have, will it be success or failure.

I will write a new plugin for MoinMoin if the current one cannot be easily changed to incorporate the new features of Creole.

I want to thank everyone and apologize for my closed mind and aggressive nature. During our work I have insulted or otherwise offended many of you -- this was stupid and shameful. Please don't take it personally.

All in all, it was a very good experience and I have learned a lot. Thank you and good luck.
Don't give up that quickly. I have written something for you in [[Talk]]. This all feels like a big football game, I am sure we will win, but there are moments when we think we can't make it. The trick is not to give up. You are one of the best players here. We need you.

I'm not "giving up" and I definitely didn't want to force **you** to give up. I'm just not going to argue blindly for my idea of how Creole should look like -- I realized I was doing this for the last several months, basically repeating the same arguments over and over. This is sudden because it comes out of a sudden realization, not because it's an act of emotional terrorism. I think that both the hyphen lists and the escape character both have the potential to be good solutions -- I just don't like certain aspects of the proposals in the current form.

All in all, I'm not going away -- I'm just stopping this stupid war I started.

Hello Radomir, whatever happens next, it has been fun working on parts of Creole with you. If you're ever in Tokyo, please let me know! Cheers.
