Just so people know, it's me that's stepping down as NLW.

My main reason is that I'm getting married next month, and honeymooning the month after, and I just applied for a 9-5 job which I hope to get, meaning I am more suited to a "dripfeed work through the month" staff position than a "2 days of concentration" one.

I'm sorry I only stuck this out for what I consider a 'minimum' term for a staff role (6 months), and I am happy to stay for next month's NL in either an advisory role for the new NLW, or to do one final stint should the hiring process not be complete by then.

I hope I have done my part to make a product of reasonable quality during my tenure, i would be more than happy to help with the new NLW's integration or hiring.

I'm here for questions and help, it's an important and rewarding role, please consider applying!

Why do you see spreading work out over the month as not being feasible for NLW?

Because it won't be up to date. There's some you can do across the month but the bulk makes much more sense at the end

Really? I can see MOST of the work can be done part by part throughout the whole month.

PvP , competition or forum game is over? You can make an entry.

WTs? One in a week.

Not to mention interview, deck and card idea.

So don't mislead us, please ;) MOST of the work CAN be done earlier.

OK, I could have phrased it better.

Let's try it again.

I am more suited to several small deadlines in a month than to one big deadline, due to probably having far less free time, and because of the way I do my best work.

Potential applicants: It's good fun, and a really important role in the community. Please consider applying, I'm sure you'll be better at time management than me. Oh, and you'll always have one person giving you positive feedback, me. I can't wait to see the excellent work that the new NLWs produce.

Personally, I believe it better to have every section written at once, as to not have a disparity in writing styles, as I find even my writing style to change from piece to piece. Makes for a more consistent and overall enjoyable newsletter. No need to nitpick whatever's been done in the past, the new NLW may opt to write in their own preferred timeframe, JCJ was just presenting his preferred methods and why this coupled with the other reasoning towards his resignation.
