I am Leaving [ Reconsidered ]

Post by JHPJHP »

PureBasic Community,

For the years I have been welcome here, it has been a pleasure to interact with most of the members. For the few who feel it is their responsibility to police the forum, and write disparaging comments about other members, I have nothing to say.

Over the next short while, I will update my Tricks 'n' Tips to reflect my status; my contributions will still be available from my personal website.

Thank you.

Oh I don't understand that "leaving" since the times I often seen it playing Lineage II. Ppl liked to create such topics, typically then they returned, and then again...
What is the sense? You anyway can visit forum (or live in MMORPG) when you want, or can do not visit for periods, if you don't (or tired of it).

Is that the reason? If so, % of such anyway exists on any forum or community, and here that's surely rare case. You should just ignore ignorants (or have fun playing with them, if have enough time & inspiration ^^).

Good luck to you anyway. I liked a lot some of your stuff like services, etc

Hi JHPJHP!

Kids will be kids! I would suggest to ignore kids and do what you enjoy and give no thought to others disparaging comments.

Anyways, you've done much contributing on here, and it was good stuff. You are one of those I really appreciate, and think highly of. I'd be very sad to see you leave us, feel we like family.

Anyways be sure to leave me your email address, so we can keep in touch.

Bests Regards

If I haven't said it before, thanks for your contributions to this forum.

I agree with Lunasole about questioning the need for a 'leaving' post. On the other hand its nice to know you didn't die even though you might not be responding to posts any longer. :)

I do hope that you would stay on as a lurker until you feel like returning some time in the future.

Thanks for the many helpful postings. Not sure what can drive away senior coders, but it is a pity. :|

Hi JHPJHP

Well this is very bad news for the PB Community, and a big surprise. I hope your decision is not related to health problems and such like. You will of course always be welcome here as one of the best!

JHP,
Any ill comments I would disregard as a Google translation mistake!!!
After all your contributions to this forum, I would attribute all detrimental comments to the nonsensical rambling of a bumbling buffoon.

Please, we lost @keya due to a political rant. I sure don't want to loose @JHP to diluted comments from morons!


Thank you, for all you have done for PureBasic.

Hi JHP!

Thanks a lot for all the PureBasic sources You built!

I respect Your decision to leave the forum but also have to say: please stay!

There should be a way to handle inpolite comments.; deleting, blaming with a "-1" or simply ignoring.

At the end, it's always about smart PureBasic we all love so much!

That goes for you too mate. You are another decent, unselfish person who spends all his time helping others.

You, JHPJHP, Srod, Netmaestro and so many others. We wouldn't code half what we do without your help.
