having gradually become professionally more and more occupied, more so even of late, i find i no longer have the time to faithfully and conscientiously keep my steward rights, nor do i need any other special rights which may still exist within the wikimedia projects or the related services, e.g. i still have access to otrs, which i ask to also please remove: please remove all special rights, as i do no longer need these.
it's been a pleasure to have contributed in various roles to the development of wikimedia and its projects, and an honor to have worked closely with so many good people.
although i may edit incidentally in the future, my regular contributions will now end for the reasons stated above. thanks and very best to all, oscar 22:11, 21 June 2010 (UTC)
