Default Retiring from Banglacricket

After some soul searching, I decided to retire from Banglacricket. The decision was neither easy nor without pain. However I believe the time and decision are just perfect for me. I'll however stay as a member and will visit and post from time to time.

I already requested the owners and admins of Banglacricket to de-admin, de-mod and de-staff me at their earliest convenience.

I like to take this opportunity to thank all the members for years of unconditional guidance, help and support. I'd also like to express my gratitude by naming, apart from the mods and admins, a few of those who actually made me the 'chinaman':

Rafiq, fwullah, Fazal, Billah, Pundit, Sauron, Orpheus, PoorFan, sports_fan_bd, SS, AsifTheManRahman, ZunaidH, Rubu, Piranha, al-Furqan, Miraz, Kabir, Hatebreed, Navarene, Sorry, crickwizard, SMHasan, Babubangla, Spitfire_x86, Sam, Cricket46, shaad, shovon13, Shafin, Tigers_eye, Mon, mona, Shehwar, allrounder, rassel, ialbd, bangladeshlive, Beamer, Tokai, Dhakablues, cricket_pagol, cricman, DJ Sahastra, betaar, sar2005, BushidoTiger, cluster11, DOORBIN, Mridul, paco, Zephaniah, James90, omio, Special 1, Sydney, TheWatcher, dorbesh, sunniath, gatekeeper, IanW, DotBall, fab, Faisal, Flipper, nihi, Fortuner, samircreep, gravitY, guy_zin, Hasib, Kana-Baba, howzatt!, imran78, LateCut , sovik, little_master, Imtiaz, Imtiaz82, israr, istiak, jabbar, kaisermatin, Shafi, Kalbaisakhi, layperson, nasifkhan, kalpurush, kkakash, Locutus, Optimist, Mahir, shaheen, shahid, Mav, mhferdaus, Mr-khan, rudro, Mueid, Sumon77, pagol-chagol, muradnyc, shujan, mwrkhan, mzia, Shubho, niloy, Nafis_BD, pilot fan, Nocturnal, sunny747, nsd3, rana, reyme, rio, roi, syedmahm, roaring tigerz, samiur666, rockpundit, Rubayed, sabbir ahmad, Zakirc, sadhat, TAIF, yaseer, Xavier, thebest, sadi, Warlock, tutul, safaat, zahid, say, sensible, ZaKi, Zia and many many more some of whom don't post as frequently as they once used to. I feel like I know all of you personally for ages.

Over the years as a mod, I might have caused you pain. Please do accept my sincere appologies, I never meant any harm to anyone, it was just a part of sincere duties vested upon me. I always tried my best to make banglacricket a better and richer place for all of us to hang out and have fun. It has been quite a ride for me personally.

There were ups and there were downs. But you guys were there for me, always. When I needed your help, a small PM was more than enough - how could I ever forget that? I wish you all and banglacricket the very best. Thank you very very much.

By now I think you have earned the right to know the man behind the nick. Well, here is your chinaman, you can now fancy your chances to take on him for all those warnings and editings

On this sad day, you just made it more deep for all of us. If anyone had to retire from Banglacricket … it should be Sir Bashar and his buddies ( Golla, Pilot ), not you CM!

Or I wish you take the job of greater responsibility for our country … something like building our country.

Hope your decision take you to farther success in life. Lot of thanks for your long service to Banglacricket and endless effort to keep it clean and enjoyable.

Very Sad. But some one has to pick up where you left. Alarmingly, more and more regulars are falling off because of a general change in members attitude, presentation, perhaps accentuated by a mix of new ones.

I hope we will miss you only from the Admin position, your continuous contribution for BanglaCricket will be unaffected.

It was very nice working with you, I always felt like someone is there to share thoughts, and to ask for support (if required).

I will always remember your efforts for my articles, columns and the gracious introductions after publishing. And definitely your never ending inspirations (I hope it will continue).

You were there like an elder brother, hopefully the relationship will remain same even after your retirement from Admin position.

You have given tremendous effort to make BC better, I know you have taken your decision after quite a bit of thinking.

Have a nice time as a member of this wonderful site.

Surprised, shocked and saddend.

Chinaman Bhai, it was a pleasure to be guided under your supervision in BanglaCricket over the past two years.
Your presence as a mod was ever felt and would always be missed.
Your help when needed is also highly appreciated.
Hope u keep on posting from time to time.

Surely parting from BC was a long thought process for you and respectfully, i would like to wish you all the best and good luck.

Now..a new problem..who's gonna punish these unruly newbies ?

This thread caught my eye and now i am saddened. Never could imagine what BC would be like without Chinaman. I hope you enjoy your time off from Banglacricket and thanks for all the hard work you've put in being the Head Moderator. I truly wish that you reconsider and pull off a Habibul Bashar and un-retire.

I said it once and i'll say it Again Thank you Chinaman Bhai.

Not the new version:
Kabhi al vida naa kah'na, chaltey chaltey...

All the great great ones retired or thought about retiring three times before they actually did. Ali, MJ, Magic. Reconsider it for one last time?

Or is it the CRICKET GURU calling???

Wish you all the best.

BC will be losing a good man. While I can imagine that this decision was not easy for you to make, I am pretty sure that it is a load off of your mind.

Retirement from BC Forum!!
Are you becoming the next Coach of BD Team?

Thank You for your time in the forum.
As a tribute to Chinaman's contribution to BC forum, we should rename the Chief Moderator position to "The Chinaman Moderator".

Chinaman bhai: As a colleague, and as a fellow member...it was simply great working with you. Your contribution to BanglaCricket can't be matched by any of us. And you have made those great impacts on BanglaCricket by making it an enjoyable environment for all of us. Hope BanglaCricket remains the way you're leaving it.

Good to see your picture...now I know that wasn't you in the video
Just joking

Anyway. Do visit BanglaCricket from time to time. It's an order...from your brothers and sisters
By now we have that right, don't we?

Whatever you do after this, and however you do it...just be safe, and take care of yourself. If there's any way we, the members, individually or collectively, can do anything for you, I'm sure you wouldn't hesitate to ask, right?

I won't say goodbye. I expect you to be here. Will just say, Happy Retirement.

Hope you have a happy retirement and it is good that you will still be around.
