It is with great sadness and regret that I have to inform you all that, due to extenuating circumstances, I will no longer be able to post on these messageboards.

Keep my stories and my characters alive. It's been a wild ride.

Yours truly,

Man, what's happened?

If you have to go, you'll be missed.

But I hope either you'll rethink, or circumstances will change.

Sorry to see ya go man. Allow me to play you off


Man, I hope everything works out for you. Ill miss yer voice on here.


Godspeed!


I hope it's something good. The way he signed his full name and dated it at the end worries me.


Yes, that is not the only disturbing thing, the absence of an explanation and the memories comment are suggestive of a suicide farewell.

But I'm gonna keep the faith.


Noooo...the great Eldritch Mr. Shiny is leaving!
Fare thee well, Mr. Shiny, Lord of the Boards, you shall be sorely missed.

Dark Archive Contributor

Suck! :(

We miss you already man!


No wai! :O I hope it's something good (like going to Art college) and not something bad (overbearing parental units). I'll keep an eye on you at DeviantArt.


Suckath! We'll miss you, and I, along with everyone else, hope it's because of some awesome thing!


Damn! Please take care of yourself, Mr. Shiny! You will be missed.

Such a post is not encouraging.
I don't mean to pry, but could local friends of Shiny confirm that things are at least OK?

Shiny's post is worrysome . . . I don't like the tone of finality and defeat embedded in the wording.

I truly hope that everything is ok . . . and this turns out to be something as minor as a tiff with his parents that will quickly blow over.

Hope to see you on the boards again Shiny One, sooner rather than later.


Crap.


Oh man, we'll all miss you. You're one of the best folks on these boards.
I hope nothing's wrong; if you want to drop me a line I think you have my email (wraith6@raresteeds.com).


I'll miss you too, Shiny. You've got my email and I really hope things are going to be alright with you. <3


Back packing across Europe?
Jail?

I'm gonna miss seeing you, Shiny! I hope and pray all is well. You add a lot to this community.
Shine on!


Shiny,

Whatever the deal is, we'll miss you, brother.
Peaceful journeys.

I am f$$+ing sick and tired of being jerked around by people in so-called positions of power.

I'm generally a nice guy. Sure, I'm opinionated, but I let other people have their say. And though I dress like a punker, I'm actually quite sedate. I'm an Eagle Scout. A lifelong member of the National Honor Society. I call people 'Sir' and 'Ma'am.'

I don't know why people like f!+*ing with me. Maybe it's because they think I'm f#%*ing with them, based solely on the fact that I'm wearing a Black Flag shirt and combat boots. Maybe it's because closed-minded people think that all guys with short hair are neo-Nazis. Or maybe, they just like f&&@ing with people who are younger and poorer than they are.

In any case, if this carries on any longer, I'm going to stop being nice. I will tell people to f$#* off. I will spit in people's faces. I will tell them what I really think about them. I will show them what us "Nazi punks" can REALLY do to their little microcosm.


What's up? Well, regardless, if you want to drop me a line for whatever, my email is jamesmkeegan at gmail. Best wishes.


Mr Shiny,

I have enjoyed your posts on these boards. I will miss reading them. I hope whatever the extenuating circumstances are you are ok and might come back soon.

If you are still reading these posts you know we all wish you well and we are concerned for your wellfare. Please let us know you are ok!

For now, take care

Yeah, dude. What's up? Drop us a note or whatnot; everybody's all worried.

Dirk Gently's his bud on here. Anybody got a contact with him? Slightly freaked out about the hypotheseseseses (sp?) about the reasons for leaving.


Hi Nomad,

Last post I can find for Dirk is May 12th. Good call though, if someone has an email for him this might be our best bet.

Shiny's got his e-mail addy in his profile. I sent him an e-mail to at least make sure everything's okay. I'll let you know if/when I get a response.

I did the same thing earlier today. As of 3pm I have recieved nothing. I will check my e-mail once I get off work.


Trying to couple a few things together.
Mr. Shiny got arrested for "protesting" at a place where some of his friends died in a car crash.
He usually posted from work.
So, if said arrest got him fired from work, then he might not have any immediate internet access.
Keeping my fingers crossed it's something "simple" as this.

Hmm, that's feasible, but he was able to state in the thread you linked that he'd gotten arrested. If he'd gone straight to jail, he wouldn't have been able to make that post... unless he made it from jail. More likely than not, since I think he's a minor, he wouldn't have actually been jailed anyway for something as petty as vandalism. Even if he'd been fired from his job as a consequence, the tone of his post distresses me. I mean, he's still got Internet access from home, right? Wouldn't he have just said "I got fired and can't post here nearly as often anymore"?

Part of me hopes you're right, GG, but the more I think about it, the less inclined I am to actually believe that this is the case...


I find his post less ominous the more I read it.

He has other things going on too - music and art - and it could just be the sum of all things.

A couple of you are emailing him so I'll refrain... don't want it to turn into a spamalanche. I hope you can elicit a reply, but then maybe he has no 'puter access.... so.


Whatever it is I hope he's ok.

I meant to imply that as a consequence of begin arrested (and probably released after getting a warning and/or a ticket) he could have been fired (because of company policy regarding a clean record etc.).

I don't know if he has internet access from home, as I said I think he usually posted from work (cue Kruelaid who said so in a PbP discussion post).
Furthermore, getting arrested could have had repercussions with the parent units, further restricting his internet access.
I'm just trying to put a more logical spin on it while hoping for the best. :-)


Yah, Shiny mentioned a few times that almost all of his posting was done at work.


Shiny should get out his handy dandy library card and hoof it down to la biblioteca post haste!

Yes, Ive been drinking.


Yeah, speculation will get the worse of us.

I'm going to hope he's alright.. and just having some hard times...

Just noticed this thread....Mr Shiney you will be missed and for what it is worth kept in our prayers.


Arg! Total BS; I pass out for 10 hours and the world starts spinning backwards. Hopefully this isn’t related to the “krylon incident.”

Awesome post, and good advice.

We need a Shiny Conspiracy Theory thread:

Violated by many tentacled creatures and pulled into alternate reality stuffed with oreo flavored people sounds way better than forced to work at paper mill by overbearing father due to graffiti related arrest (I made that last bit up, don't read into it).
