Used to see this guy posting all over the site. Seems he hasn't been active since 2017. I remember seeing someone comment about it in some post somewhere. Does anyone know what happened to the guy?
As a general rule, we just figure anyone that stops being active on this site for long periods of time to be dead or locked up/trapped somewhere until further notice.
I think he was working in California last I remember. Had some sort of computer related job there or something.
I completely missed out on the politics with regards to this (and the reasoning behind it etc), but could triple-J be upset that his story The Order of the Midnight Sun is no longer featured?
Wow. And it's still tied for #1?!
I am really curious what the "recent" ratings of it are (if there is such a thing). That seems more relevant to me (with respect to this site) than even JJJ's personal opinion of his work.
How a couple of those stories made it to the top storygames of 2009 is beyond me. Can't imagine what the lesser ones were like.
Oh for fuck's sake. I literally just added a couple early endings to my game (at WIBN's nefarious insistence). There go my future rating points. :-(
I'm too new here to be sick of the old gems; but, yeah, I think the new blood should have a chance to shine in the spotlight. It's a good way to encourage us writers/prospective writers.
Just do you sometimes.
There are going to be some natural break/save points in the game. I suppose I could throw in a couple of pure "end game and leave comments" links for convenience/to counteract rating-inflation...
Well maybe if we make a thread and each post:
It will summon him back to the site.
Faded into oblivion, he has.
