    Shining Ted's Cam-Ho Sticky, got me thinking...

    We should have a Sticky for a running tab of what ever happened to some of the great folks that have been here and contributed in the past, but are no longer active. So here it is:

    It is a running tab- with a comprehensive list in each successive post so as to not be a pain in the arse to look through...

    Also- this is a comprehensive list of anyone with more than 225 posts who hasn't posted in a month...

    WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO:

    Cujo- Popping in upon occasion, but not overly active.
    Allyx- Drug back by the scruff of his Chainmail, occasionally. If we need him, he will come, like the Avengers.
    krunch- Not modding, still visiting occasionally (and hopefully playing!)
    Lord Spike- RL relaxing and playing STO mostly. He pops in upon occasion to check on us and keep his post count up, as he says :)
    Half Knight- Stopped in recently to report for duty! Put him to word Ted, Agetian, Gaear... :)
    Cerulean the Blue- Stolen by WoW, then EVE, but he has Returned! WB Big BLUE!!
    Kalshane- MIA since Dec 2009
    Emirkol the Chaotic- Crawled out of a long forgotten corner just the other day to take on the role of the Prodigal Son. Hopefully he is back for good. :)
    Necroticpus- Left because of criticism.
    Old Book- MIA
    Livonya- MIA Popped in about a year and a half ago.
    taltamir- MIA
    lord_graywolfe- MIA
    Cuchulainn- MIA
    Orion79- Left on bad terms
    vampiricpuppy- MIA since Apr '10
    ShadowDragoon- Was MIA but as of Jan 2013, back with a Smile! WB SD!
    Lord Plothos- MIA
    Morpheus- MIA
    zhuge- Back after 10 years! Welcome back, to where your dreams are mere stepping stones!
    Sol Invictus- MIA
    darmagon- MIA
    Nomad_Wanderer- Back around, hope he stays around as with all of our returning "Old-Timers"
    rufnredde- Leaving the occasional, once a year "Oy!"
    Heavydan85- Was MIA since Sept '10- but back, and here for another round as of Dec '11! WB HeavyD!

    Templar- is back again after a few month hiatus

    Since I started this some have blessedly returned- whatshername74, Zebedee, and Shining Ted (after giving a 2-weeks notice to "the Man" finally) and there have been some updates to the activity cycle of some- myself and Allyx as examples... I will actually be trying to contact anyone with 300 or more posts via email, to see what they are up to soon.

    Most of these people just drift away and there's no telling what happened to them. :shrug:

    Mr. Allyx is indeed around here and there though. Always nice to see him.

    Re: What ever happened to...

    Yup I'm here, not as active as I once was, work, Facebook and EvE online are stealing my time away from me, as is the limited time I spend with my daughter, and an ongoing quest to find love in the big wide world, it's out there, somewhere.

    Facebook claims another one :no:

    Lord Spike gave us warning that RL was swamping him.

    Can someone tell me what the appeal of Facebook is, anyway? Honest question.

    Re: What ever happened to...

    maalri -- You were a regular poster when I first joined this forum, IIRC. I'm more of a lurker here, but I check back from time to time when the ToEE bug bites. There are certainly other former regulars who are currently MIA:

    Krunch
    Kalshane

    There was a Spellslinger here for awhile who helped out getting missing spells implemented IIRC.

    And Old Book who wrote a very enjoyable fan fiction / walkthrough that included references to fun little bugs in the game that you modders had to go and joylessly squash. (e.g., who can forget the imagery of two ravens crapping down a shrewd hagglers back?) ;)

    Re: What ever happened to...

    I was indeed a regular poster years ago- then WoW and now I am back a bit- never modded though- I am shamefully a user not a helper- just never dedicated the time to learn it. I can answer some newbie questions upon occasion though, so I guess I am not a total waste :) Thanks for remembering me.

    BTW Cujo- we all KNOW where you are-- seeking cookies IIRC...


    SO- in keeping with my format:

    WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO:

    Cerulean the Blue----- RL victim
    Lord Spike----- RL victim
    whatshername----- Grew up? RL victim
    Morpheus----- MIA
    Livonya----- MIA
    Allyx----- Still around but distracted by Facebook...
    maalri--- stolen by WoW for a bit but annoyingly back...
    krunch----- MIA
    Kalshane----- MIA
    Spellslinger----- MIA

    Re: What ever happened to...

    maalri -- Old Book could be added also, or maybe you left him off because he's still active.

    I hear you on the 'I'm not a modder' thing. I did try my hand at it 2 or 3 years ago, and created a few opponents to fight, intending to create a full-fledged new encounter for high level types -- this required editing a handful of files to set attributes, strategy, create items, etc. I could spawn them in the game and have a battle (woohoo! ;)), but I realized I lack the time or, more likely, the determination to follow through on the more difficult aspects of creating a fully fleshed out encounter. So, thanks again to the Co8 modders, you've done a great job continuing to fix and enhance ToEE -- I always enjoy coming back for more.

    Re: What ever happened to...

    Absolutely add anyone we even THINK may need to be mentioned, that's the idea.

    I mean if they are now lurkers- or even drop in once a month- it might be nice to know they are missed.

    And the Modders here are TOPS- truly a great group to whom I owe many fun hours of my life. :)

    Re: What ever happened to...

    Well it is good for keeping in touch with friends who you no longer live near. Also a great place to organize a party or other event. It has other things, but i use it a lot for those two reasons.
