CP Rewritten: Hagrid and Joee Announce Resignation

Posting about resignations is always a difficult dilemma, but with two administrators having announced theirs within two days, it seems highly within the community’s interest to be aware. Two of the game’s four administrators, hagrid and Joee, have announced their resignation.

This was hagrid’s message to the community.

Hello everyone,

I hope you’re all well and good — especially in times like these.

Today I am announcing my resignation from Club Penguin Rewritten. I will be officially leaving the team, forever. I will also not have any affiliations with Club Penguin Private Servers anymore. I’ve had so much fun the past three years being able to help the legacy of my childhood flash game. I’ve learnt so much and have met so many great people. Sadly though, all things must come to an end. I hope that the Club Penguin community thrives for many more years to come. It’s YOU that makes the community special. This amazing virtual world will always be held deeply within my heart and I will never forget it.

I love every single one of you so much and hope you all take good care of yourselves and others.

Thank you for giving me this opportunity of a lifetime. 🙂

Waddle on,

– Tim/Hagrid

(Just want to clarify, I’m still on good terms with the whole team. Love them. This was an entirely personal decision. Thank you all.)

This was Joee’s message to the community.

Hi, guys!

I’m really sorry to say that today I am resigning from the Club Penguin Rewritten team. I will no longer have any affiliation with Club Penguin Private Servers and I will not be returning.

These have been some of the best three and a half years of my life. What started as a small project became something phenomenal. There have been good times and bad times, but I will always cherish those good memories.

But, I want to thank everyone that has played the game over the years, to the people that have come and gone, the people that have been here from the start and the many people that are still with us today that have shown endless love and support.

Club Penguin never was just the game, it was the community. Without the community it wouldn’t be as special as it is.

I’m now moving on to the next chapter of my life, working on new projects and trying to innovate in new ways. Once again, thank you for everything. Club Penguin will live in my heart until the day I die.

For the last time…

Waddle On,

– Joe

Even with two administrators left, both were under heavy pressure to resign, and there is no doubt that there is uncertainty over what comes next, and I’m afraid that I don’t have the answers.

However, I express significant gratitude to both of them for their dedication to both the community and game, despite all the issues. I hope people will join me in wishing them nothing but the best going forward.

Waddle on!

    how is cpr still running? wasnt Disney supposed to shut it down? and if all the admins go can anyone step up to run cpr or would it be the end forever?

    • Torres 126

      Disney has intervened against it and attempted to shut it down, yes, but CPR is not complying – it’s unclear how sustainable that is. I personally think hiring new admins is out of the question for a variety of reasons, but I’m not sure what will come next.

    I don’t get it. Why they leave the team? I’m a CPR player since it launched but i’m not playing for a few months now. And i’m also from Brazil and sometimes gets hard to translate and compreend a text. Last year the brazilian version of club penguin shut down as many other, is CPR starting to see an end? srry for my bad english, i try :/

      Sorry, I fully appreciate how difficult it can be to switch to a server which uses a different language! I’m sure their decision was influenced by numerous factors, but I think that they just wanted to “move on” as well. CPR probably is starting to see the end sadly, but the team are denying closure is imminent.
