Title: "Bye, I'm leaving forever" thread
Post by: The Terminator on September 09, 2006, 08:41:08 pm
Well since I'm leaving for good, I figured that I'd make a thread like this so whenever people say: "I'm leaving foreve" they can do it here. Plus it doesn't really fit with the "Bye, I'm leaving for a vacation" thread now does it :-\

I've thought about this for a while.....I figured out that forums are really bad for your social life....I've got tons of schoolwork, a job, familly and friends. Forums can't really fit in there anymore. There's a few other things that I wanted to start such as productive hobbies, working out more, driving out more often. Forums would be the logical choice to terminate.

I also figured out that being a nerd doesn't really fit for me. I need to get out more with my buddies and go hang out/party with them. I would really suggest that if you want to have a better social life, you should cut out on them and make more real friends in the real world (Don't take this as a boycotting attempt Steve ;-) ) I mean if you think about it, it's pathetic. We're wasting hours/days in front of a screen talking about games. :P

To the people who RPed in Pseudo Sequence, I guess you guys can use Forgan to finish your story if you guys want to, just keep him cool ;) after that, I'd appreciate if people wouldn't mention/use my creatures in RPGs.

Well, it's been nice knowing ya all this is it.

From the Rules of another forum I frequent (And Necro's exempt because it was his friend and not him that announced that he was intending to leave forever.)
Quote
Rule 6: If you decide to publicly proclaim that you are leaving this board forever, please be sure you really mean it, because you won't be welcomed back.

Sometimes when someone announces it on their board, the members often say "I hope you don't Rule 6 yourself" meaning they hope they don't return.

So yeah. I follow that rule. So if I'm gone for a long time, I'm off to find my inner game philosophizer and will come back in a week to a month or so.

Edit: Also, I was thinking that maybe it's just him trying to get attention, which is why people usually rule 6 themselves, they're secretly reading the board hoping to get attention, and when they get enough "Come back, we'll miss you too much" they appear and go "Well, maybe I'll stay, since all of you care so much"

(Like I said before, Necro is exempt because he set specific limitations, he only told his closest friend, who then tried to get other people to sign a "Please Return" I don't think Necro was secretly reading it. I bet he was off ranting about the people that drove him nuts, or doing something else entirely)

No, he was complaining about it a few weeks before.  And he did make a lengthy post on why he was leaving. Axelgear's thread came a few days later. But I don't think you were frequenting everything else then, so you're forgiven.

Considering i rarely visit the forums, spend a lot of time working and with my girlfriend/friends, i like to think i have a good social life.  It's all about balancing your time... if you REALLY can't sit down and do some work/go out with friends because you're addicted to visiting forums, then you may have a point.  But all i think you need is to learn how to manage your time - don't come on until you've got your work done.  Don't come on until you've spent time with your friends.  Don't come on unless you have some serious idle time.  No need to stop participating in a "hobby" simply because of poor time-keeping.

And how is talking with people on the computer any different to talking with your friends about video games?  If your friends don't like video games and that kind of stuff, then you don't have to wonder why you feel the need to visit gaming forums all the time!

Plus i've learned over the years not to take threads like these seriously.  Maybe this is a serious one... but inevitably people WILL come back and visit again, just out of curiosity.

Here's something I've learnt. If you want to leave a forum, you do it like Patman did (before he came back) and not like Pilot4life. You don't know that you won't return, and if/when you do you'll look pretty dumb. Just say that you may or may not be back.

You can never really leave... you'll come back eventually, for some reason or another.

Ironic, no?

Necro's back. He just spends most his time in creature corner. He occasionally appears in one board or another if it peaks his interest or it has something that says "Necro 4 Mod" Which was a complete joke the first time I said it but sometimes it seems this board is incapable of sarcasm and think hanging with tall people makes people tall.

(No really, I posted a humourous list called "Why Gays shouldn't get Married" which is a total mockery of all the reasons and everyone thought I was anti-homosexual. I guess that's why I like the Snopes Message board)

For those wishing to know what happened to Necro:

(This is after his "Canadian Brethren rise against the US!" thread. He ran away to CC and the thread that made him famous)

Quote
Well this offically ends it. Obviously most of the people on this forum lack any kind of intelligence, compassion or reserve. Which is ironic because those are the same qualities I am accused of not having on a regular basis. Perhaps you see in me what you hate in yourselves.

Either way, I refuse to associate myself with people who do not deserve what intelligence, compassion, and reserve I do possess. So, I'm leaving again, for good, to meet better people than yourselves. I know this is quite a joyous occation for many of you, so here's a pause so you can revel in your corrupt victory...


...

To LadyM: I hope you rise above the lies you've been taught. Think of me what you will, it doesn't matter - because you'll be wrong.

To those who dislike me: Take pride that you destroy heros. There aren't enough villans in this world.

To the few of you here who I am pleased to have known, you know who you are, and I thank you for beleiving.

And now that that is settled, I have only one thing left to say.

I'm sorry to my creatures, and whatever friends I gained here. I have failed you. I wish I had had the strength to stay in the CC, and not be tempted out by the stupidity of the masses. If I were Superman, they'd all be my kryptonites. I failed you, and now I must go.

And this is Mr.Wizard's ultimate retort:

You leave because your points are weak. Because you don't seem to understand that Canada isn't the only nation that has been involved in friendly fire incidents. Your Radically leftist news agencys are no better than America's Propaganda Filled Right Conservative New's and don't pretend otherwise. You hate Bush, well fine, so do I. It doesn't make you News networks any more unbiased just because they are in Canada and not America.

Quote
- I posted this in another thread, and was told to be silent, because it was not directly relevant to the thread. But I shall not be muted -

I'm sick of the U.S. military "accidently" bombing Canadian peace keepers, then not even appologizing. I think after the fourth time, we deserve some freakin compensation. Like Bush's head on a pike.

I am also angered by the pressure that was placed on us by the US to accept the (officially declared) faulty rocket defence program, and the ban on beef they imposed, when the cows originally came from Texas (a fact few people acknowledge). Thankfully both those issues have been resolved... for now.

Thus, if any of you, my fellow canuks, have gripes about the way we are mistreated, abused, and slaughtered by our so-called "allies" and "neighbours" to the south, this is your haven to post.

You are believing that you are somehow morally superior because your troops have been the victims of friendly fire. This is ridiculous, friendly fire incidents haven't only happened to Canada. In the first campaign in Iraq, more Americans died in friendly fire incidents than to Iraqi gunfire. Not every single soldier involved was court marshalled. You are right that America should compensate the families, but understand that America isn't some huge single entity, that can consider every action it has done. The American military automatically sends out money and letters when American soldiers die, because we have them in our records, where their families live, their earnings, everything about them. Not so with Canadian soldiers.

Accidents happen even more often when multiple countries are involved. Communication becomes more difficult since their are two different chains of command that must be worked through. An Army can't know the exact placement of everysingle soldier on the battlefield. This is more popularly known as the "Fog of War."

And don't you ****ing dare propose this is due to poor training, or that American pilots are sub par. There are more American  pilots in the air than from any other nation, so the chances for an accident are much greater.

Quote
I don't want a war. I hate war. It's stupid. But we all know the US still has "manifest destiny" on the mind, and I for one will not stand by while my countymen are bombed from above by careless Americans while we try to clean up their mess.

Yes, come later and say your "cleaning up our mess" when foriegn involvement from the beginning might have lead to better policies concerning the aftermath of the initial engagement. I find it ironic that other countries say how the World War's and the Holocaust could have been avoided if we had acted sooner, then turn around and do nothing when America's fool of a president decides to pick a War that could have been shortened if another country had taken a look at America's post Saddam rebuilding strategies. I thought the War was bad from the beginning, but America and its few allies was allowed to go to War unchecked by the rest of the world.

Quote
Your beloved president himself asked for our help, so take that up with him. And now we're being betrayed and there is no remorse from anyone in your country. We mourned the loss of your people, and now you make mistakes like this mercilessly. We cannot afford to send our population into the meat grinder like you can. Four of our dead peacekeeps is like losing 40 of your soilders. You wouldn't laugh about 40 of your men dying. Be glad I;m not in a position of more power, or I would concider these betrayals an act of war against Canada. And unlike the Iraqis, we can acctually fight back.
Quote from: From earlier
I don't want a war. I hate war.

A man of contradiction. Bush would like you. I guess contradicting yourself is fine if your not American Roll Eyes .Accidents are not betrayal. If it were, America would have gone to war with itself 80 times just a month after the first ground troops were plopped onto Iraqi soil. Sheesh, Canada has been in bigger wars than this, and accidents happened then as well. And your entire arguement hinges on "Canadians are worth more than Americans" racial supremacy bull****. We aren't sending our "population to the meatgrinder." Our military is entirely volunteer, and you talk like Americans could care less at the deathtoll, despite the fervent rallies and motions to get as many soldiers as possible to return to America.

You sound like the one who is brainwashed. I am very sorry that four men died by accident. I would have much rather had no one died in Bush's pet war. I can't help if Fox news has brainwashed a crapload of people into loving Bush. it won't ease the pain of the affected families to say that "accidents happen" but it is no less true. I wish humans were perfect and never made mistakes. Never waged war. Never killed. Human lives are never cheap. Despite what you say, Necro. And you would still take out your aggression by attacking America, despite knowing that our troops are deployed elsewhere and the only thing you would have to shoot are civilians. Thank God that you are not in any power, as you would just be another Bush. It is still war, and accidents do happen. Again, I am sorry four people died.

But your still a weak little wuss of an ******* with radical ideologies that are little better than the Bush Administrations War policies. Smiley
You are made even more of an ass by singling out LadyM as your "oppressor" She was just doing her job by trying to avoid a flame war, since you couldn't be civil and degenerated into personal attacks and ridiculous remarks. And because you couldn't stand that, you run away, as if doing so would make you right.

I reccomend this thread be locked. If anyone takes offence to anything I have just written, PM me and we can discuss it in a civil manner, something Necromicon is incapable of doing.

I don't think I'm breaking any rules by doing this.

Actually Necro came back again after that. Check the member lists, for TheNecrominicon, or however you spell it. Remember, no spaces between the two words in his name. His post count is 0, i guess he's just watching what happens now, not really posting. But yeah, unless its someone else using his name then its Necro.

Edit: Oviraptor told me that the other Necro isnt the one we know and .....love, yeah lets say love. Its just some idiot taking the name as a joke.

Yeah, I read that after I noticed he'd deleted his account.

Who cares? I mean really, I don't. If him "leaving forever" is the only way to increase the average civility level of the board, then perhaps it was a good thing. As I said before though, I wouldn't have minded him staying if he'd just stopped acting like an ass all the time. To be honest, he's probably started an entirely new account and will have to build his reputation all over again - I fervently hope that if this is the case then he will try to behave more appropriately - the board will be better for it.

Let's put an end to discussion about Necro. He's gone, and he's not coming back.

I didnt hate Necromicon but he makes Canadians look bad. I am Canadian and I live in British Columbia sure I was upset when I heard about the Soldier stuff but they died knowing anything could happen. Sure when I first heard it I was insulting the Americans but after you think about it theres a number of factors that could have happened.

Necromicon had also PM'd me talking about his leaving or whatever and called me weak or something like that. I just told him he didnt know me and he shouldnt judge people he knows nothing about. Other than him making Canadians looking bad and PMing me over a stupid thing and calling me weak I have no hate against him.

I dont care that hes gone because I never noticed his presence very much in the first place, Forums are constantly changing and people come and go. And although I dont show up much I still try too stay in touch (even tho most of you dont know me or very well). Anyway Im done my bad speech. I'll update my Serlan sometime  :D

yes this is indeed a double post.

I cant really be on the site much anymore. My wanting of Spore has completely died, and thus my excitement for the CC section has pretty much died down alot too. I've also been busy with work, real life, boyfrieind, lots of other crap, school. Do I need to add more to the list?

But yeah, consider me pretty much gone, at least for a long time.

Post by: Gauphastus on November 06, 2006, 03:41:11 pm
Well, nobody will read this, but whatever.
I'm done here.

Been here since April 08, 2005, near the beginning.
It was nice here back then. Less smartasses with agendas or causes, less members in general, but lots to discuss.

I tried to get attached to the community by coming here often, but this quite easily tears it.  :-\
But now there's never any news on the front, there's little left on the forums I really care to talk about anymore.
Not that if I said anything, anybody would read it. My main issue here is that most of the time, I feel largely ignored.
I put a lot of thought into every word I say, and I guess I do end up saying a lot. Still, no point I make is responded to unless there's really nothing else in the entire topic to respond to.

But whatever.

Maybe I'll be back when Spore comes out.

/quit


EDIT: I'm back. Obviously.
Just edited it 'cause some folks were saying to me, "Wait, didn't you leave?"
Yes, I left. But now I'm back!

And I am more the sex than ever, baby.


RETRO EDIT: This was completely retarded and, for anyone actually paying attention, basically cemented my status as a total attention whore.
Good job, me.

Though people were completely blowing over my posts a lot. It was driving me up the ****ing wall.

Sorry to hear that Gauphastus. You've been here almost as long as I have. I know there is a lack of news but we are still a community and we're all waiting together. Your posts do get read, they are well written and well thought out. Don't forget there are hundreds of people who read the forum that aren't members.

Don't stay away too long.

Malt is an enforcer of order around the more rowdy parts of the forum. Wherever there is a risk of the angry, dramatic havoc spilling out into other sections of the forum, Malt is quick on the case, ending discussions and punching midgets left and right. He isn't much appreciated because of his job, but it's a dirty job and someone's got to do it. So really he's doing us all a great service by keeping the dramatide at bay - learn to appreciate your local forum workers.

I don't think I'm confused by it.

Of course I'd really have to PM everyone else to make sure that's what they were doing.

Okay,  I've decided to come back.  I must have been a bit confused with a few things.  I thought you guys were flaming me because of a mod nomination.  I will now try to be less emotional.  Everything Else isn't the plase for the weak hearted...
I think most of it was a case of mistaken identity

Should I leave? I mean, I Have only realy made about two one usefull comments......

it was about the Tidepool phase in spore........



Why would that make you leave? It's not a requirement to be useful and witty to be a member. Sometimes people don't post for a long time and sometimes they post alot. Just stay, read and post when you want to. No reason to leave.  :)

Well i have to made up my mind and this time i am actualy leaving. I'm tired of people judgeing my intelligence because i am a creationist and i am tired of all the rude comments toward my beilef, it just shows you who the real ignorant ones are. I am tired of nothing being said about them and me being unable to reply. I am tired of bias moderation and i am tired of the way people treat newbies. I am tired of those who don't like me following me everywhere. I am tired of fanboys and know it alls and i am just plain tired of this forum. It used to be great when i first joined in 05. But not anymore its not a fun place to be any longer. I can find another spore forum if needed so nothings holding me here. I am tired of people who play innocent in front of the mods but not innocent to you in PMs. CoughKrakowCough. I am tired of suck ups. I am tired of it all. And besides whats the point of staying somewhere your not liked very much?.


This forum is home to many kinds of people and beliefs. But only a few are respected and treated fairly not just regarding religion (and dammit if atheism ain't a religion you guys are sure as hell trying hard to be one). World views, Goverment, Sports, And thats just the cream of the crop.

I know annouceing your leaving means nothing no matter who you are nobody cares. But i figured i would go out with a bang ang bring something to surface. I seem to be the only one that does

Later guys and gals. Enjoy spore if it ever comes out i will be :D

Well I just have to respond to this one. It's sad that you feel so unhappy here and that you feel that you have been singled out in some way as being mis-treated, that is not the case. Everyone here is entitled to their own opinion on a subject even it it doesn't agree with yours. Because they disagree with you does not mean they are disrespecting what you believe.

I don't know what you consider bias moderation, we cannot mod what goes on in personal pm's only what happens on the public forum. We don't play favorites and you have no idea how many pm's we send out members about things. I'm sure many here could tell you that they have received messages from us about something. If your not having fun and it's become a stressful place for you then maybe it is best that you find another place to hang out. Good luck with things.

No I would say that's spot on. He would become too defensive if someone made a that didn't jive with his beliefs. The problem though would be his reply would usually be some blanket statement that basically ended up attacking other people who wasn't even in the conversation. And the forum blog was really.. ugh.  Don't get me wrong, sometimes you need to rant to a 3rd party who has no idea whats going on, but to constantly keep doing it was well quite frankly, rude in my opinion.

Nothing says "Stop breaking my ****" more than a visit from the police. He might be your father but if he's shattering your expensive gear then he needs the wake-up call. Not too far from breaking a part of your body. Over-reacting? Maybe. It might be a step away, but it might be a smaller one than you think. Its a trouble to vid-cam them doing it (because thats a good way to wake them up, if you can film them doing stupid crap whilst drunk, and play it back to them when they're sober), and that'd probably just wreck the cam or provoke him more, but still.. ugh. At least make a backup of your important stuff before it happens, because by the sound of it, it will. If you ever get taken offline and it keeps up, make sure it gets seen to. This wont go away if you ignore it, so good luck. :s

I find that strange you  have not seen him.  god, why would he be banned? now it feels like a little piece of the forum is gone.

Fixed.

Malt was an annoying kid who didn't know when to keep his mouth shut, nor how to treat other people with respect. He'd been borderline trolling the forum for a year, and finally stepped over that very thin line he'd been walking. Good riddance.

How old was malt? You said kid...

he's fourteen, according to his profile



is any one actually leaving no so every one is off topic please people stop posting here

and actualy, Im thinking of quiting. everytime a good member (I.E. Malt) leaves, this site becomes 5% uncooler.

Why was Malt banned anyway?

Malt was an annoying kid who didn't know when to keep his mouth shut, nor how to treat other people with respect. He'd been borderline trolling the forum for a year, and finally stepped over that very thin line he'd been walking. Good riddance.

everytime a good member (I.E. Malt) leaves, this site becomes 5% uncooler.

Its a matter of interpritation anyway.

Unless your leaving, please stop posting here, it's going off topic really bad. No one is banned without a good reason. Leave it at that.

Ah, this explains a lot. I got a touch confused when groups of old Crazen threads were all at the top of the forum lists, locked, with the bumping message being "Quote from Malt : Discussion Over". They're all gone now, though. I was beginning to wonder if I needed more caffiene for a moment...

I'm not leaving. However, I am about to start my final year and so consequently I'm not going to have quite so much time, especially since I'm also taking on a number of new commitments.

Frankly, correcting the philosophical, political and personal idiocies of 15 year olds falls waaay down my priorities list; with that in mind I think for a while I'll probably just be lurking and maybe just posting the odd thing or two, rather than posting as usual.

Have fun, everyone.

Hmm. How often are you going to be doing DnD (I don't think one session a week would break the time bank as long as I learn to multitask)? I'd rather he didn't die, since Malachi is easily one of my favourite characters. Have him head off to the wilderness to find himself or something.

Abrasive to the very end. C'mon, parting shots just lower you.
Still, I wondered why you werent around so much. Maybe once life stops being such a pest, you can get back here so the internet can finish off devouring your soul with the rest of us monitor huggers. ;)

I was looking at this topic and thinking... What happens to full forums over time?

I mean, say this forum keeps expanding to 10,000 members or more, what will ut be like in ten years? Will it be a ghost forum? I don't think so, because I doubt people will just stop joining.

So -

1. The most likely outcome is Steve has to shut the forum down. :(

2. Or all the good members leave, it descends into mayhem and no one new wnats to join anymore.

3. Good members actually stay with this forum for years. That would rock.

Eh I remember back in 2001 I joined a Forum called Egomaniacs which had been around for about a year or so. It was mainly based around the upcoming game Fable (At that time) but like Gamingsteve we had alot of other fun things too discuss. Needless too say the Forum lasted a good 2 years before it went down the drain. Lack of activity and the fact that Fable wasnt as good as promised led too the running down of the site. However two sites later 80% of the original Egomaniacs gain is still there posting away. So in my opinion I wouldnt worry too much about the death of this Forum.

I would not consider having messed up internet problems a *vacation*. But i'm not leaving forever ether...so i just chose the closest thread.

Anyway a to my surprise the new modem came today (yay). The bad news..it does the exact same thing so the damn problem is not with the modem. So they are supposed to call in 24 hours to schedule another tech guy visit....

So..for an undisclosed amount of time due to the tech supports lack of ability and the tech guys false assumption that it was my modem that was messed up ill rarely be on...its very frustrating having to navigate the internet when i my internet shuts off for 30 seconds every 30 second.

In order to post i have to copy the entire post and reload the page then paste it because the connection times out... >:(

After thinking for a bit i have decided to leave. Its been fun with everything i have participated in and all the cool links i have seen it really has. But honestly..my time logged in is 28 days 13 hours and 8 minutes...

I have been coming in less and less for different reasons... And i never really have fit in to this particular forums. The main reason i stayed was becuase of Spore general before Spore came out..but Spores out now and i never really venture in to Spore general anymore.

Maybe ill come back if Steve ever comes back and starts updating and making podcasts. But at the moment as of now i am gone until further notice.

See you guys its ..been interesting to say the least  :P

Earlier i was actually dead serious, But i was also really angry at the time too.

I don't think i am actually gonna leave now. Like i said i was angry and bitter..and it is fun here and while i have spent waaayyyy to much time logged in..it would kinda be waste if i just up and left.

I wish i had actually gotten to my post before anyone read it. Nobody's ever gonna take me seriously if i cry wolf...bah..sorry for making a scene  :(.

I don't know, I just don't feel like I'm motivated to be here anymore, Its not a bad site.
Its just that, well, I've gotta move on ;)
My life's been pretty hectic lately, so It's not very easy to deal with this.
This will probably be the last message I'll post on this site, so goodbye.
When I first joined this site, I was looking for a place to belong, to feel welcome.I still do, but I feel that in the short time that I've been here, I had an incredibly wonderful experience.
To think, I thought that this was just a Spore fansite! This site just doesn't seem as active as it once was, and it's nowhere near dead.
But, I fear I must go, and simply surf the internet once more.
TBH, I feel as if no one even cares about this, as if I'm nothing. Well, I don't really care, it's time I said goodbye; and I hope that you will remember me, maybe as that n00b who play left 4 dead, or maybe as a friend.
I don't know. But I'll say goodbye to everyone I've come to know: Yannick, Sam, darkdrag, LadyM, Steve,Xeno etc.

I don't know...

Should I leave?  Nobody seems to like me anymore.

At all.

Plus, this place just isn't very interesting anymore.  Every joke is a dumb sexual innuendo it seems.

I feel like the only person who would care if I did indeed leave is...

Hang on...  Let me think...

...

...........

That's my thoughts.  Nobody seems to make an effort to be kind or considerate of others anymore. 
Yes, I can take a joke.  Maybe I just need a short break and my posting spirit will be back, but my energy seems to be drained, either that or I know if I bad mouth someone who has been here a while or even anybody I know it won't be appreciated.  Because frankly that's the reason I barely post, nobody cares about my opinion, nor do people here understand me.  Which brings me back to that post I made a while back.  Nobody seems to be  appreciate anything but a good laugh anymore.

I'd say more but I'll probably regret posting this...

I wish people would stop leaving and stop talking about leaving. Jeez, everyone chill out.

I've had people die and just disappear without a word and it's all very stressful. If you have a gripe, post in the gripe thread and move on. There is no reason to leave or threaten to leave.

@Kenobro - your not alone, I feel the same way at times. People like you, I like you. I like people here way too much and then they leave and I'm left without them. It all sucks. For those of us who do care about others, in the end it doesn't matter because emails aren't answered and we get ignored.

Post because you want to post and if you have something to say, not because you think others will like you or like what you say. Just be you. Most people just need a break and then they come back feel better. Maybe that's what you need.

What Flisch posted was a mean joke.

Title: Re: "Bye, I'm leaving forever" thread
Post by: Flisch on July 11, 2009, 12:36:40 pm
I have to agree with LadyM. If somebody is really annoyed by all the people on the forum why would he/she care to tell them by posting a "You're all so mean, I go forever!" except for grabbing some attention? I sometimes feel the same about leaving GS and even deleted it from my bookmark list, but I never made a post about it on the forum. I mean, why bother? You (Kenobro) said yourself that nobody will care if you leave, so that post was kinda pointless...

Also, my post wasn't really mean. If someone posts here just to get some attention I will not support him/her by saying "Oh please don't leave, you are such a great person!"
Title: Re: "Bye, I'm leaving forever" thread

Post by: Great Distance on July 12, 2009, 01:08:10 am
I actually tried leaving once just to see if I could do it. Well, I'm still here, so I guess that didn't work out.

Lately I've been thinking of leaving to migrate to the ConceptArt.org forums, because I think that would be more beneficial to my interests at this point. You know, they make art and it would be good for me to just concentrate on that if I want to get better at it.

But I think I've been here for too long to leave now. I guess I've gathered some friendly acquaintances as well. It would make leaving seem like an attempt to prove to myself that I can do just fine without you. And that in fact, I would do a lot better without you. I could concentrate on doing art all day if it weren't for you, and someday I would be rich and famous. Booyah.

I don't know...
Because frankly that's the reason I barely post, nobody cares about my opinion, nor do people here understand me.  

Well, you give too much thought to it. I remember when I used to wait nervously for replies to my posts and was really disappointed when people ignored me and it seemed like no one was interested in what I said. Then at some point I realised it's useless to think about that. People will reply if they're interested, even if they don't reply, it doesn't mean that they didn't read what you said.

It is true that no one cares about your opinion. They don't care about my opinion either. If they agree with someone, they were probably thinking the same thing already. Whether they agree or not doesn't always depend on who's saying it, just what they're saying and how they're saying it.

Even if people don't agree with you, then... that's their opinion. So what if people think you're stupid? You know you're not, so they can just go suck balls. Don't tell them that, though. That'd get you in trouble.

Also, I don't get what's the whole deal about people wanting to have a good laugh. People make jokes because other people find them funny. People want to have a good time, they want to laugh and be happy. Well then, what if someone makes fun of you or someone you like? Ignore them or learn to laugh at yourself. Sometimes it's good for you to realise just how ridiculous you've been.

I'm not saying you shouldn't care when people are being blatantly insulting. If you think someone is being mean just for the sake of being mean, you should call them out on it. If they were just making a joke, though, that'll only end with people thinking you're too serious and can't take a little fooling around.

So my word of advice is: Don't care what people think, realise that the world isn't really such a serious place, laugh at yourself, laugh at other stuff and just relax. Because in the end it doesn't really matter if people cared about you, only if you enjoyed your time on this earth yourself. And if you start enjoying yourself, you might just notice that other people like to be around you a bit more, too.

Peace, GD.

*shrug*

Breaks are always good. If you feel the need to announce any type of extended absence or that you're leaving entirely you should follow through on it. Don't come back to check to see if anyone responded to your goodbye, that makes you look bad... and don't come back two days later. Optimally you just want to slowly ratchet down your posting and leave. No large public announcement necessary. Tell the people here that you like, if any, and just roll on to the next thing. At least that's what I always try to do.

Yea, no. Unless Sam or M confirms it, from what I can decipher from our Modly Systems... Grangan doesn't appear to be anyway related to those past. He'll just have to leave of his own accord. Don't concern yourself with it, and don't spam the topic. My ruling is only preliminary... so, don't be surprised if he does end up banned. But I personally see no links, and no reason to do it at the moment.

Proxies leave evidence, but you are close enough to right. Still, admittance of guilt is not always prove of guilt. Until M or Sam weigh in, my position stands. You can either go, or you can stay. If you stay and don't cause trouble, then I see no reason to force you to go. If you really want to go, then just go.

So yeah, long time no see. I know I haven't been on in a while and probably never will be again so I guess it's time to put in my final resignation. I feel awkward as I write this so here it goes. I feel as though my time here has been a waste. I feel that everything I've ever done on this forum was really just one big nothing, hell, worse than that. I feel as if I've embarrassed and pretty much screwed myself over beyond repair simply by using this forum. Spore was a disaster, my time in the forum games was a disaster, my attempts at RP were so horrible I can hardly bare to mention them, and overall if feel as though I have been ostracized from the community at large for a variety of regrettable actions. Regardless, despite all these regrets and my own lingering animosity, I wish to bid you goodbye with the utmost respect and with no anger toward any of you. You've all made this forum experience an important part of my life, which is sadly, ending. I wish to say my goodbye personally to LadyM (who gave me chance after chance after chance), Skyward, Yuu, Squigan, Kaizer, and Pixel. You've all been true friends to me and I thank you for it from the bottom of my heart. So anyway, hasta luego, goodbye, and cherry...

Farewell, Andrew Ryan, Yannick and Kenobro. I always looked upon you all as a part of the forum, and to see you all gone... I'll always feel like a part of this forum will be missing. Oh, well. As Grazony said, you do something stupid and you're gone. Well, except for Andrew Ryan. I'll miss you.

I miss Andrew Ryan and Keno more than I do Yannick.

To be honest, he was a dick, keno could be a pain, but he was all around good.

As for AR, he wasnt around for a while, so I knew he left, but he was a good person, and its sad to know he's gone for good.

Yannick was an ass on the forums, but actually a pretty nice guy on Messenger. It's a shame that he decided to act the way he did on the forum, because I know things could've been differently. That being said, I'm not sad he left. At least I can still talk to him on MSN, where he isn't deliberately acting like a dickhead.

Bye Yannick and Kenobro, I will always cherish the good times we had on the forums and laugh at the way you got banned since.. it was extremely stupid and probably a wish to get banned in the first place.

If you read this, I do a half salute to both of you resulting in one full salute!

I wonder, is this the very same phenomenon you encounter at funerals? I mean, I don't want to sound like an ass, but those three people were (to me) far from being "great". Keno's and Yannick's ban was inevitable and I think it was quite weird that Yannick wasn't banned or warned (though that could have happened behind the scenes) earlier. And Andrew, well, what has he ever done on/for the forum? >_>

Posting porn is an instant ban, no warning. It's pretty cut and dry and everyone knows that is not allowed. He knew what he was doing.

Most people don't leave forever, they come back eventually. Most who leave forever don't announce it, they just leave.

I imagine most people who post porn do so when they want to cut their forum addiction cold Turkey.

in other words, posting porn is the internet equivalent of suicide

No, not at all.  I really don't care about the looks as much as I do the functionality and as someone who makes at least 5-10 PMs a day I can honestly say that the effeciency of the system plays an important role.  Whereas the default theme highlights in bold the alert of a new PM directly above the forum posts, Babylon puts it in fine print in the corner.  advantage: default.

There's a setting to get a pop-up when you receive a PM, or even an email. That's a lot easier than manually checking that section of the page :)

I know that, but while I'm on here (which is a lot, if you hadn't noticed) messaging someone and posting at the same time it's a lot easier than flipping between this tab and the one for my email.  Besides, chrome would just block the popup anyways and I'd really prefer for tabs not to switch focus on me when I'm in the middle of typing up a post.
Title: Re: "Bye, I'm leaving forever" thread
Post by: Didero on November 17, 2009, 07:16:17 am
Then just use the pop up, and add gamingsteve.com to your popup blocker's whitelist. It works for me.
But hey, everybody has their own preference. And I know yours are weird since you're not using the Babylon theme :P


Now this has been off topic long enough. We should kick somebody off the forum to get this back on topic again.

Bye guys, I'm leaving forever. It's been really great and this place has whipped me into a proper Netizen, but there's nothing here for me. I don't visit anymore.

I hope I've made a few friends smile during my time here, and it has certainly help me grow as a writer. It was great and I really enjoyed my time here, but I'm afraid I'm leaving my first Internet community. Thanks for all the memories. :)

Oh hush <3 you're fine.

This forum needs more new members before you all go extinct.

It's harder then it sounds. Spore, for a majority of members, was the reason why people have joined. Once the official forums came to be, some migrated there due to it being an official resource and for the larger community. Now I'm not saying everyone has done that, but there was a considerable decrease of member activity here around the time the official site and forums were up and running. (but it's not like activity was booming in the first place). Generally speaking, 3k member forums only have a few hundred or about half of that visiting the site daily.

However I'd like to think that [some] members here have left simply because they lost interest, found a better forum or are dealing with RL issues. Which is totally fine, though it does make the forums a lot less lively.... almost like a ghost town  :-\ but there's always MSN, mIRC and the like. I'm just glad the senior members still show there faces from time to time. Once they stop showing up you REALLY know this site is dead.

So yeah.

Yeah sure he upkeep's the site and i appreciate that, but he never posts, updates, or makes Podcasts.

So i wouldn't exactly say he is still here.
Title: Re: "Bye, I'm leaving forever" thread
Post by: PatMan33 on December 02, 2009, 03:03:07 pm
Well that depends how you define the word "here". In the real world, "here" usually denotes some kind of presence and/or involvement.

And he still visits the site every day (albeit invisibly) so he's here.
Title: Re: "Bye, I'm leaving forever" thread

Remember if you want Steve to start pod casting again you need to follow him on twitter. Just a little over 200 more followers and he will make a new pod cast.

In the real world, that may be true but on the net presence is physically impossible, meaning that involvement is really the only way to define here.  It's similar in this case to the word active, as far as the internet is concerned they typically refer to the same thing.
Remember if you want Steve to start pod casting again you need to follow him on twitter. Just a little over 200 more followers and he will make a new pod cast.

That is a bit ridiculous. He would make podcasts without twitter back in our time.

Not really, he just doesn't want to waste time on it if people don't want it enough.

The idea is not to use twitter as a social site for those you know but as a news feed, follow any bands, sites, etc. that you like and use it as an alert for new content that you might be interested in.  It's completely harmless to use it as a tool.


But I must agree, the discussion IS getting a bit off topic.

Well Little, didn't really know ya much and it's a shame, perhaps I might see you visiting again sometime.

And why not?  What's the harm in taking 30 seconds to make it, whether you use it or not.  In fact, you might as well go off and delete it as soon as he makes the podcast if you're that much against being a statistic.  All you're doing right now is ruining it for anyone that actually DOES want to see him come back.  Who knows, if it turns out well enough then he may continue it again and the forum will start building up steam, finally becoming what it was before.  Think about it, your refusal really isn't helping anybody.

Now if you excuse me, I gotta get Kaizer out of my room over on Whirled, he's spamming audio-effect crap again.

All it shows is Steve cares more about how many Twitter follow he has then his own website, why on earth should we have to make an account on another website to convince the man to create a podcast for his own website?

Its ridiculous, The excuse was he has not had the time..and man..ill tell you Steve must be the busiest man alive to not find the time to write a couple paragraphs on the front page..even once a month.

But apparently he is willing to find the time for a podcast if he gathers 1000 followers on twitter instead of just finding the time for the people already on his site that have been dedicated to it all along.

I really wish he would just sell it to a member actually dedicated to the website.

As i said before i appreciate the upkeep, but that does not make Steve exempt from his inactivity.

If I know Kaizer, the only reason he's "left" is because he's spending way too much time on WoW.  If he doesn't come back within a week, you can expect him to appear sometime around the release of WoW Cataclysm.  Either when he gets really bored the week before release or when he finishes up the majority of new content around two to three weeks after.

That wasn't quite his last post. His real last post is in the graveyard, and by the looks of it, he was kinda peeved at all the madness going on at the time that he really didn't see the need to stay around.

Only the people can bring about the wonderful and glorious communist forum that awaits behind the horizon! However, as mod I promise to act as a catalyst for the transformation that will turn this small gaming community into a shining light of friendship and brotherhood in the dismal darkness of the normal caste system, the one that divides the brothers of the forum into bourgeoisie and proletariat, the hard working forumites who make up the spine of internet society being relegated and subjected by those above them. Are you not as beneficial to forum society of the mods, those who whisk away your hard-won posts to secret places that you may not access, or ban your fellow family for playing after a work-filled day?

Remember now, a vote for Clarke is a vote for communism, and what could be better than that?

All who do not vote for Clarke will be shot banned upon my capture and control of the government. Have a nice day.

I guess I better run for office then...

A vote for Dr. Octagonapus means so much more than democracy. It means a return to when times were simpler, to when the world was better, to when the underdog and the dark horse could win the day. It means a modest, honest, lasting, and productive peace. And it means a unified world with a galactic-class defense system to keep out those who would harm us. Let us not quarrel. We must let the voices of the people, however inconsitent, combine to heal the wounds of nature and of mankind.

Too bad communism won't get you any levels or magic items.  With a communist regime, Clarke plans to keep you all at 1st level and equally defenseless so that no-one else can sit at his throne.

If only there was one, a leader with enough faith in his beliefs and trust in his populous to allow them to thrive and give them strength without the fear of rebellion.  Oh wait, that'd be me.

WHY Does everyone leave! Soon this forum will be dead! :(

This is a big risk due to the fact that this forum has lost it's two "points of interest" that made people come here in the first place:

  • Interesting Spore speculation with the presence of Will himself (well, once) and a good Spore fanfic community
  • GamingSteves podcasts

We need something that would make these forums relevant again.

Since when.  I mean, it's a great community, and not having a specific subject means that we can adapt to whatever comes in the future.  Like, if this really was a pure gaming forum, why would there be entire sections for movies, books, tv, etc.?  This is the Seinfeld forum, only we've got a hell of a lot more than ten seasons in us.  This is the Cheers forum, except we don't have to look at Norm Peterson's face.  This is the forum where you don't go for the subject matter, you go for the people.  This is the forum about nothing and where everybody knows your (user)name.
Title: Re: "Bye, I'm leaving forever" thread
Post by: Huckbuck on May 08, 2010, 05:27:49 am
If that is what we are aiming for then the Spore sections should really go, or at least be merged into a subsection of PC-games. If we go that route there should also be subsections for other games that are popular subjects of discussion on these forums, like Dwarf Fortress.

So, to sum it up, a guy who no-one has heard of left us a message telling us that we shall never hear of him again.


Celebration!

Sorry I'm late, but I remember this guy! He was the only one besides Detoxicated who posted on my first cell-evolution poll game. Also, he followed Spore: The Game and was actually quite friendly towards me.

Crazen, perhaps I should add a corollary to the statement I made when you left the time before last.

Crazen! Don't go! You're never too sexy to have internet friends!

You're also never so sexy that you can act as if said internet friends are below your level of interest. If you're here, you're here. Don't try to justify it to yourself by implying the members of this forum that post on a regular basis don't have other important things they could be or are in fact doing. Treat them with the respect that comes from recognizing they are here by choice because they enjoy this place, and they are considerably more likely to treat you with the same respect. This forum is generally a pretty welcoming place. I'm certain many people, including myself, would be happy to have you back (in whatever capacity) under such circumstances.
 :)

(Not to mention, implying that contempt for this site is the reason you've been absent so often makes those of us who want to be here more regularly, but are just terrible at time management, look bad.)

Welcome back Crazen. I understand what your saying. You had a sort of "addiction" to the forum and needed to find other things to do. Now that your not "addicted" you feel like you can come back without getting into to it so much.

Some people can't stay away even when they're banned over and over. Now that's an addiction. Nice to see you back

(http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f227/Detoxicated/KrystalSnoutsuckling.jpg)

Krystal Snoutsuckling - ((i]Kristalus inhalare[/i])

Creator: Detoxicated

Ancestor: Koral Beakworm

Habitat:Somarinoa Coast

Size: 20-25 cm Long

Diet: Herbivore (Prong Crystals, Ur-Corkscrew Crystals)

Reproduction: Sexual, Two Genders, Eggs in between Crystals

Description: The krystal snoutsuckling evolved from the koral beakworm, and even though it looks quite different, it still has close genetical similarities to their ancestor breed. They changed their diet however, switching to ur-corkscrew crystals and prong crystals. Due to the hammer on the lower side of the Snout it can easily open up the Crystal Korals and with ease it sucks out the juices with its snout.

When mating time arrives, this is about once every three months, the Snoutsucklings gather and "dance" with their fins around the ur-corkscrew crystals as well as the prong crystals. During this dance the females throw off their eggs, whereas the men send their semen. Those eggs that are impregnated settle beneath the Korals and start to grow. Those that aren't impregnated and the percentage of eggs that are waved away from the currents are left to die and are usually eaten by the sea dwelling creatures around.

I think I'm gonna go. I don't know if I want to say "forever", I may be back later.

I was never really an active member here, even though I was around during the spore hype, I never joined in on it, and when the site died down, I contributed even less. Now I feel like I am just wasting time here. Never really felt like I fit in- like I just hung around wanting to fit in with a crowd I clearly didn't. I had a fun time, met some good people, but I just don't see much reason to stay. I'll probably lurk, and like I said, I may be back.

Bye everyone.

Well, at this point I see about two ways we could build a reputation as a forum:

1. Through an investment of time and dedication, combined with good word of mouth, we become known across the internet as a friendly, good natured place for conversations both serious and hilarous. A shining beacon, if you will, of civility and community in the realm of internet message boards. A true rarity in an information world where netiquette is so hard to come by.

2. We spread as many terrible memes and rumors regarding the site as we possibly can until local news affiliates do horribly inaccurate news reports about us.

The second option is faster, not gonna lie.

You know, I've considered leaving myself... but then I realized that with the energy I already devote to this site (whether or not it's well-applied is another matter), leaving would be a waste of time. Plus, you guys are most of my human contact outside of school. (Nobody in my neighborhood except the one person who goes to school with me knows me enough to trust me. I had a great friend around here once, but he moved away. I rarely actually see my friends, to the point where I wouldn't recognize some of them if they came to my house wearing a nametag. One friend of mine? I moved away after second grade. He had moved away just two months before. He was a year older than me, being that I skipped 1st grade. You may not believe me when I say this, though. Anyway, he left, and I never saw him again. I am now a sophomore in high school.)

At the very least, I think we'd need a better publicity campaign than:

Something that isn't a lie, for a start.

Post by: Gnoll on November 24, 2010, 03:19:18 pm
I'm out of here. As much as I would love to hug and make up, I've come too far in the direction I'm going. This isn't to say I won't still lurk a little, but I felt that I needed to give a little bit of closure. As of now, I beqeath the following assets:

The Pentekonterus hereby go to Galactic-Warrior. I spoke with Lush, and they said it was OK, so I'm handing GW the Nymeidians, too.

The Molybdyesi will fall under the joint control of Raz and Rysworld, who have, overall, been good to me.

Pokemon Garnet and Irkkuf of Sidereal Hour fame will go to Yuu.

Sporelord will get control of The War of the Tomes. Good luck.

To MotherFan42, I hand Pixel Kid, for use in any future Magnifying Glass RP's.

Before I forget, I am trusting GroxGlitch with the responsibility of handling the Calypso Hegemony.

Finally, that crossover I suggested. If needed, I will RP a bit and provide explanation of some characters and units. However, Galactic-Warrior and GroxGlitch will be taking charge. I will still have an administrative role there, but not much else.

Wait, I forgot Badger Man 22. You will get the Yamino family (should Cunae ever be revived) and help tie up any ends I left loose. Goodbye, all, and please don't tell me you were drunk half the time. Now, if you'll excuse me, I've got to delete all my photos and personal tales from the site.

Incidentally, I have just read that lengthy rant you made a few weeks ago now, and I would like to appologize.  I'm aware that I have contributed somewhat to it, in good fun, unaware that you took it much more to heart that I belived.  I just want to make clear that I have never disliked you Oct.  You have annoyed me yes, but I have never disliked you.  Reading that actually reminds me alot of myself when I was younger.

It's good to rant like that and get things out of your system.  I wish I had a medium like this forum back when I was going through stuff like that, may have gotten through it much faster than I did otherwise.  Don't you dare delete that post.  It's good for you.

You know, Badger is right.  You need time away from us, and us from you, a trial separation if you will.  Come back when you're good and ready.  We'll still be here when that day comes.

Until next time Oct.

I come here, find my inbox has two of these Molyb things from Oct, and wonder what's going on. Perhaps, he is leaving? So I come here, and discover that Oct has decided to give them to me. I don't know why, but I already deleted the PMs. Honestly, leaving is rather pointless, Oct, but if you feel it's necessary, more power to you. And don't go giving your stuff away, especially to people such as me who've lost total interest in the Spore Sections, and those you don't ask to receive your stuff.

And you'll get through it, I think we all go a little emo at times.

Well... I only posted here because I'll be pulling away from a lot of what's here for now. Thanks for the encouragement, and I'll tack on some addendums:

1. I will not be making my true disappearance until after PlanetChum is finished.

2. Remember Origin? I'll be taking a little bit of the idea with me wherever I go.

3. Could a mod please move this stuff to the Vacation thread?

4. If you don't want the Molybs, Raz, I guess I can just finish them myself. Still, I need someone to keep these things going while I'm gone.

5. I guess I can help finish They Who Cannot Be Named. Now, upon my return, I really hope everything is still intact. I wouldn't want The War of the Tomes to die while I'm away. Also, I'm going to give it to Watcher In The Puddle instead, who I hope will steer it on the right path in my absence.

Title: Re: "Bye, I'm leaving forever" thread
Post by: Raz on March 09, 2011, 10:17:22 pm
I joined GamingSteve on April 29, 2006, under the name Snake, some others, then Bumpyride, finally Razonatair.

Though I never truly managed to become as involved in the Creation Corner as I wanted to, a Creation Corner which eventually died mostly as a result of Spore's failure to live up to the hype, a Creation Corner which I tried again and again to revive, I still ended up spending a ton of time with a group of people that I've now known for almost six years, nearly a third of my 18 years. I came here when I was 13, and my posts back then show the incredible stupidity/naivete/uber rudeness. Looking back at some of them, I cringe at how they mean they often were. They've also reminded me moreso now than ever of how inappropriately I've treated the younger members, without remembering how I myself felt treated at times.

So, throughout my time here, I've made countless blunders and stupid mistakes, handed out possibly thousands of insults, and generally been a consistently-banned nuisance. At the same time, I've learned a great, great deal about people, about socialization, and been a part of an amazing forum whose time I feel is sadly approaching its end. I've met incredibly interesting people, and worked alongside them creatively.

I doubt there exists another forum in which I will ever be so involved again. The only one even close to GamingSteve was PlanetSpore, and that closed long ago, cutting off my contact with a lot of great people from there. Other forums feel as if they're far too large, far too impersonal to be a real part of. GamingSteve has never been so large that I haven't known the majority of its active members. It's a tight-knit community, and I believe that has been what makes it so great.

But I've felt my connection wane greatly in recent months, watched projects and RPs fall apart because of lack of interest, and witnessed what is essentially the total death of the Creation Corner. I no longer feel as if my place is here. "Real Life" is beginning to become more and more pressing, especially as I will hopefully be a part of the U.S. Air Force in less than a year, and as I spend more time with my loving girlfriend.

It's been an incredible ride, but I feel it's my time to get out of the cart. I've been here almost since the beginning, and it's saddening to see GamingSteve in the state it's in. But I feel better knowing the site won't simply not be there one day, as was the case with PlanetSpore, and that I can maintain my connections to the people I've met.

I'm sorry for the all the stupid **** I've done, insults I've doled out, and my behavior in general over the past ~6 years. It's incredibly easy to be mean over the Internet, wherein one doesn't have to face the person being insulted. In real life, I'm incredibly gentle and nice, and apparently "awesome, sweet, and loving," in the words of my lover. I just wish I could've displayed my true self thoughout those years, and made the ride even better, been nicer to all of you, been more of a part of these fantastic forums and people. Unfortunately, I ****ed up a lot, and often.

But I feel that's all behind me now. I won't forget you guys as I leave, and I'll always be a part of the Steam group. I hope you all live good lives, and may GamingSteve continue to live on as well as it can.

Man, Raz was Snake?  I always wondered what happened to that guy.  He was one of the few I recognized from PlanetSpore.

Anyway Raz, though we've had our share of disputes, I'm in agreement with the others that you have definetly matured and I'll be sad to see you go.  Just know our doors will always be open to you, and you can be a part of both the real world and the forums at the same time.

That's because it's redundant.

But yeah, I also don't undertand why people might decide to leave forever.  Go on an extended leave perhaps.  Reduce forum time maybe.  But to flat out say "Nope, done with this" I find a bit strange.

In my opinion, if you care enough about us all to make a goodbye post, then we havn't seen the last of you.

He kind of douched out and turned his account 'off' I suppose. Him and Pat had a history of altercations (i never noticed but I am told it was there) and when Pat went public Gec just took his ball and went home, so to speak.

Moderator abuse isn't uncommon. People can be a prick with that kind of power.

Gec always seemed nice to me. What exactly was he doing to Pat? Slowly lowering him into a vat of steaming carrot juice while muttering, "They called me mad...MAD!"?

Let's not drag this discussion up again.
The mods do their job (and I think most people can agree they do that well) and if anybody has a problem with (one of) them, take it up with them personally. Don't play it out in the open, that helps nobody.

Now unless somebody thinks they're gonna leave forever but in actuality will return in a few weeks/months, let's let this thread lie for the moment.

This forum served a purpose for me. In fact it affected a very great part of my life, amongst them the skills I have learned and, decided to pursue. I wouldn't be the same person without it, for the better and for the worse. Whatever the case, I'm leaving. And it is a strange thing. I thought this day would never come. But when I was 7 years old I never thought the day would come that I would go to "junior high" or "high school". But alas, I'm already in university, I own a car and go to work, I buy my own furniture and pay my bills.

Maybe it's just a coincidence I decided to say goodbye today, on the same week as I turn 20. I already decided to leave some time ago. On this evening, right now, I just felt the need to tie up some loose ends. Out with the old, in with the new. That's the feeling I have. Some things need to be appreciated for what they are and what they meant to me. But it's time to put them in the past. Being here may have been one step I needed to take but now I need to take another.

I am sorry for everything that I have left undone and unsaid. I have new responsibilities now. I need to move on with my life, and it's about time, too. Have a good one, everyone.

You gotta do what you gotta do I guess, but remember that you can still move on to the next stage in life without cutting all ties to the past. 

That's why I just don't understand this thread in general...why does anyone bother saying bye around here? If you don't want to visit the website any more (the proverbial you, not you specifically GD), there's no problem with that, stop coming to the site, but there's nothing stopping you from visiting every once in a while. Moving to a new home and saying bye to all the friends you won't see any more makes sense*, but I've just never seen the purpose of it in a place like this.

Farewell, and good luck.

I know we've had our differences in the past, but all the same, it just wouldn't be right of me to stand aloof at a crossroads like this. Especially since, you taught me, in your own way, a lot that I didn't know about myself. And by in your own way, I mean by not holding back when you needed to get a point across to me. You never did pull any punches.

So, in my own way, I'm guess I'm saying: thanks for everything.

You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave.

Yeah, I consider that every time I come here since I left I'm just visiting. I have left, make no mistake, though. Just because you see me, it doesn't mean I'm here to stay. I've moved out and I'm not going back. Still nice to see you, though. Everyone.

Goodbye,

Some of you may have or not noticed that I haven't been on recently. I didn't notice when it happened but it just did. So I thought I will say goodbye. There have been a lot of memories, from the creature creation thread, the many Sim adventures, cavemen, sealed copies of Parer Mario, the birth life and death of spore, and so many more. It's weird to think that it's been... 9 years!!! Crap I just looked, my first post was from Aug. 4th 2005. Anyway, you dudes and dude-ets can find me anywhere as ilikesanta (Steam, XBL, PSN Etc)

I might come back and raffle off my codes I get from PAX this year.

Ok Bye! (Waves)

Hey guys,

I'm probably not gonna go on here too much anymore - the energy here has really been kind of weird lately, I find my interest in videogames and movies and that sort of thing waning, etc. etc. All of you are great people and I'm happy that I've known all of you for so long. In a way, I grew up here, and this forum is hugely responsible for my sense of humor, taste in entertainment, worldview, all that kind of thing. But I'm trying to spend less time on the internet and more time in the real world, and this place certainly isn't what it used to be, though it's still a very nice community.

I'm probably gonna leave the discord server at some point as well. I know some of you outside of the forum and I won't stop talking to you every once in a while, and of course if anyone wants to talk to lil ol' me (although I'm not, as far as I know, a huge presence here), message me on Steam or Facebook or something like that.

Love you guys, and keep doing your thing.

Working Holiday Visa.

Basically a scheme to let the youngins travel to exotic locations (usually Australia) but as part of the bargain they have to work in an under-staffed industry (in Australia it's agriculture) for a while.

Some people see working in manual labour or, shockhorror, hospitality as an acceptable loss for the privilege of living in Australia.

Would also like to throw out the fruit-picking industry and getting exploited by farmers called 'Fat Mike-o' is only necessary if you're the sort of person who wants to extend their visa for a second year.

Just smuggle a chazzwazzer in your trunkie on the way in and Fat Mike-o won't have any crops to pick.
