After owning the server for nearly 13 years, it's time for me to move on. I no longer have any interest in IMRP or SA:MP.
While I could silently keep the server running in the background, I rather just get rid of the responsibility now. There is just no motivation or interest anymore to manage the server, script the gamemode, the daily forum PMs, Discord messages, complaints, needs – after all these years it's just become a burden and is not fun at all any longer.
Huge thanks to the admins and helpers in the past and now for their contribution to IMRP. I could write a long story about how IMRP/SA:MP was a significant factor in my life, all the important moments and things learned. I'm grateful and thankful I had the opportunity to run this server and community. Managing IMRP has made me learn plenty of things over the course of the years, but right now, there are more interesting things to do for me.
What's next for IMRP?
I don't know yet. I can't think of any person who has the knowledge, ability, motivation, is neutral and liked by the community to run the server in its entirety. There is much more to it than you may think. Please don't message me to suggest yourself, your friend or your mother, that decision is only up to me. I want the best for IMRP, and it's a tough decision. I will take a decision within a few days.
Rest assured, the server will stay online and running. I might pop in once a while just for the nostalgia and to see what's new.
Thank you and see you in-game sometime
