    Final words from Ralinx

    I promised Ralinx that I would post this, because he's tired of answering the same question over and over again

    My conversation with Evilestknight

    so post this if u want, so i don't have to reply the same thing in the emails
    i get about it

    this is the first mail i got from evilestknight:


    I have been away for a few days and I just logged in
    and I saw what happened. I figure you probably have
    gotten a few emails asking you to come back, so I
    won't let this email drag on. But, you are a
    valuable asset to the board and I assure you that you
    are sorely missed right now. If there is a way to
    convince you to come back let me know.

    my reply:

    i appreciate the email, but i'm not coming back. i've been thinking about
    leaving for a couple of weeks now and yesterday it finally happened. if it
    hadn't happened yesterday it probably would've happened next week, or the
    week after that, or ...

    his reply:

    I understand. Can you tell me what exactly prompted
    your leaving over the past couple weeks? I know that
    there has been some undesirable trends going on lately
    and I was just curious about what kind of things the
    board can do to prevent these kind of events in the
    future. Or what kind of things we could do to make it
    more pleasant for you; if you decided to come back.

    my reply:

    it's kinda weird to explain. when i first signed up it was a small community
    and there wasn't anyone i didn't like. But as the community got bigger, a
    couple of people came along who i just couldn't stand. At first i just
    figured it was no problem since it was just a messageboard and everybody has
    a right to post to a messageboard. But they started posting a lot, to the
    point where i got annoyed if i simply saw their name (i can be very weird
    once i don't like something). To make matters worse i found myself joining
    discussions with these people simply because i didn't agree with stuff they
    were saying. So that only made it worse because then they bothered me even

    So that's one part of it (the biggest part of it really), but as i said
    earlier the community has gotten bigger and bigger. So naturally more and
    more posts followed and i'm the kind of guy who likes to read every post made
    on the board and the last couple of weeks it started taking up too much time
    (sometimes more than a full hour each day which was a little bit too much
    imho) I tried to cut back on reading all the posts so i could concentrate
    more on my schoolwork and stuff like that but i kept going back to LJR and
    reading the posts and if possible replying to them which made me waiste even
    more time.

    So the fact that visiting LJR started bothering me more and more because of
    certain people and the fact that i spent too much time there just made me
    consider leaving.

    So there's really nothing LJR can do about it since everybody is free to post
    (which is only normal). It's just that i'm a weird guy and i just got enough
    of it. The only solution was for me to leave because since i'm the one who
    had problems with certain people i feel that i should be the one to leave.

    Anyway, i hope this clears some things up...

    his reply:

    How about you come back and just stay out of the
    "General Topic" Forums. I know exactly what you mean
    by people getting on your nerves and stuff, to be
    perfectly honest with you.
    < EDIT: here i cut some things he probably doesn't want posted on the board>
    You help out a lot on the board and some of the stuff you
    come up with is simply amazing. We definately lost a
    lot of depth with your departure.

    my reply:

    i really don't see that happening

    that's it

    I can respect his privacy, but you really shouldn't have said that because now I'm dying of suspense!

    You're killing me here... :-/

    (me also sort of wants to know who it was that Ralinx didn't like. Kenshi? Others?)

    Wow. I can understand though. When a community gets larger sometimes those who were around the longest find that the community isn't the same community they came to be a part of. The best thing IMHO is that we don't bother him about it and just be good friends if he wants. He's a cool guy and he might just come back to the BBS someday ..... but not right now.
