Message added by PJTierney,

Did you know that the long-time members of this thread have had a DiRTy Gossip Discord server for a while?

You do now¬†ūüėȬ†

 :o This is a very sad update to the thread. So much has happened since you first arrived and it's a damn shame that you aren't going to be overseeing the community as DiRT Rally continues to grow @justbiglee .

Truth be told I have spent very little time on any other game forum - so I have little in the way of comparison - but the unorthodox way you have approached the community, contributed to the development and allowed us to contribute to the development of DR has, in my opinion, made this a very unique place. It has also bought a lot of laughs (and a lot of frustration at times as well!).

Huge thanks for everything you've done at Codemasters, I can honestly say the place won't be the same without you, best of luck for whatever you have planned next.

I think I'll need to think longer on what to say... :(

I'm really sad as your actions and approach to this needy DiRTy community made the DiRTy Gossip the best place on the internet.

Thank you for all you have done and for how hard you've fought for the game to be as community wished.

I'm sure you'll absolutely smash it wherever you go next. Best of luck Lee :)

P.S. I'll write a bit more later.

Sad to hear, you have been the leader of this community and have definitely helped shape what Dirt Rally has become so far.  Which for someone who had given up on sim racing, Dirt Rally has brought me back I never expected something like this to come out of nowhere.

Best of luck in the future, Lee.

Oh,come on now that F1 trainwreck is slowly killing Codemasters.How many more heads need to be taken to satisfy the higher-ups?People at Codemasters ,please call for the license to be dropped and use all the funds to create a new and improved Grid game.Plus a huge boost for Dirt Rally can be on cards.

Aww, sad to hear that you're going but hopefully it's for bigger and better things - will you be staying in the industry?

I'm only new around (April 28th, not coincidence) but have enjoyed interacting and your various things but I get the idea that you've played a good part in helping to mould this into the game we wanted and changing the path for the better, so thank you for that.

I echo the above call for this thread to be closed and a new one opened by the new poor soul in charge of 'managing' us.

Anyway, to prevent/delay/postpone our sadness, it would be only right for you to go out by giving us a massive hint about something. And yes, I'm going to tell the new guy that he'll need to introduce himself with more hints......

*ahem*

There was once a torturous troll always teasing and trolling his entire troll-y day in his own troll-y way...
Over time, a community developed around him, constantly trying to decipher his sayings, to separate the tease from the troll, to piece together the secrets that may or may not have been hidden there.
Eventually, the troll's DiRTy secret was out... the trolling died down, though the teasing didn't cease, and the community that had developed continued to expand and grow and you know the rest of the story.

Anyway, @justbiglee , it's sad to see you go. You're a real genius, knowing exactly when and how to tease, frustrate, console, comfort, joke, troll, troll, troll, and reveal information while gaining support rather than the anger some of those techniques usually earn.

We'll miss you greatly. Best of wishes to our favourite Torturous Troll, Community Manager, DiRTy Blogger, Beard Grower, Biscuit Stealer and Fan Of All Things Off-Road.

Wish you all the best with whatever you have lined up. And expect you to still be lurking and commenting around here long after you've ''left'' us. :wink:

that's very sad news, I wish you all the best for your future endeavors :S

However, rest assured that you definitely pulled off one the best early access of a non-indy studio ever done. You set the bar for any future EA title and its already higher than most will ever reach.

And i'll miss your patch notes buddy! 

Farewell!

Before DiRT Rally was released I was a lurker on the forums, I've always passed by here to check news regarding a new DiRT game and @justbiglee would always tease about it and left us puzzled but those were great times. :)
Then after the game got released, I signed up to this forums to join this great community.

Thank you for being great and hope for the best in the future. ;)

I'm old enough to remember playing game demos when they came in cassette tape form, stuck to the front cover of your favourite game magazine! I've been around a lot of early access titles and played in a lot of beta tests over the years. But, I have never felt like I actually made a difference to any of them until DiRT Rally happened.

This is the first early access title were I know the feed back we gave was actually heard and used, and this is entirely down to you @justbiglee. You have fought hard to make our voice heard and to fight our corner in order to shape the best rally game in years and for that I say thank you. You will be missed round here, no doubt about that and I wish you every success for the future.


Good luck and best wishes dude.

Woa woa woa.

You're not closing the thread, it's the backbone of the community and took me ages to bully MVB into starting it.

This thread is like a national park, it's a protected institution and it's your job to maintain it.

You are not closing it you hear me?

Bunch of fannies 


(I love you guys too)

@justbiglee - all the best, Lee.  Can I ask why you're leaving (your own decision, or CM's?), and where are you going?
It was my decision, not an easy one mind. As for whats next for me I know it sounds weird but I don't want to bring that into the mix just yet, I want to enjoy my last few days at codies without having that conversation going on too.
