Farewell

Jiquor with his two sports cars.

Dear GOODBLOX Community,

I have been a part of this revival since the very beginning when we first started in 2018 with Keanu73, MrPinball64, GameHero, KJF, and others. We have been through so much over these last couple years with three different iterations of GOODBLOX – this iteration being the best and most successful despite many bumps in the road we’ve been through along the way.

But I’m going to get to the point, no matter how hard it may be. I regret to tell everyone, but it must be done. I am retiring from GOODBLOX completely, which will be effective on October 1st, 2020.

My decision was set as of September 20th, 2020. I am officially retiring from the GOODBLOX community and all of what has been part of “ROBLOX” with me for more than a decade (since May 2007). I have to focus on taking care of my family in their fragile states, I have to focus on Tawny, my significant other, I have to focus on my education extremely highly (I seek a future in psychology and want to keep going with the competitive GPA I have at this moment, and the pandemic has shifted classes online which makes class participation even tougher on me), and I’m getting serious with my new hobby, which will be body work and mechanical engineering (for automotive transportation). The COVID-19 pandemic is also hiccuping my life as a whole even further than it has in the beginning of the pandemic, and there are some personal hiccups I’ve experienced this year that I won’t bring up because they’re on highly personal levels for me. But all this has made me realize what I must be focusing on – and that’s my true future.

The paintball map I worked on with our staff team.

I’m even slowly beginning to stop playing games as a whole – the only real thing I play these days is Pokemon GO, but that’s with my friends in the real world – a game in which all twelve of us play, even together as best we can. Some of those friends have come and gone within the last four years, but it’s where I feel I can truly feel connected. The stress that’s built up here as well has partially taken a mental toll on me, and I know it’s time for a newer generation of people to carry on this project.

There’s a lot more I want to write here, but that would take about fifteen pages and three hours which I ABSOLUTELY DO NOT HAVE today. My work ethic and life goals are slowly coming back into my sense of reality, and who I truly want to become. And I don’t expect to return, but if I do, it will be as a lowly asset developer and creator. I truly thank all of you for being in my presence these last few years.

Before I sign off, I want to give a special thanks to KJF for being a great mentor to me these past few years. I’ve probably learned more about game and web development from him than I’ve learned from others. It’s knowledge that I believe will come in handy.

If you want to keep in touch, the best way to do that is via Twitter, or Discord, if you have access to those. I will most likely update my Twitter more often down the road – nonetheless, keep building, GOODBLOXia.

Farewell, soon…
– Xavier Moore (Jiquor)
GOODBLOX Creative Director
Co-Owner

  18. When I initially joined Goodblox, I came with certain expectations due to the previous owners of old ROBLOX type of websites being very egotistical and careless.
    After not only watching Jiquor’s livestream on Twitch but generally from lurking and seeing how he interacts with the community on-site too, I was glad to see he was a true contributor to Goodblox and genuinely cared.

    Goodbye, Jiquor. You did great. πŸ™‚
