As stated, I’m not getting what I want here, but I still feel “the draw” because I’ve been here for so long. I’m actually planning to head over to TGA. About all I want these days is AoS because my wife and I do it together (well, after she’s fully better, that is). The Dakka community...isn’t wonderful for AoS. Overread, I already saw you’re there, I’ll see you over there. I assume I’ll see a few friendly account faces once I’m up and running.

Reality is a nice place to visit, but I'd hate to live there.

If you want, I can help you change your password if like, but getting someone you know, like your wife, to change your password might be easier.

Timetowaste, we can of course accommodate that, and I'll send you a PM now...

I’m sorry to see you go time. On bad days I’ve almost found myself in the same boat, so I completely sympathise. I would ask if there’s anything we could do to change your mind but it seems pretty made up.

I’m on TGA too, usually in the Overlord thread, if you ever want to talk AoS.

Just waiting on RiTides to lock me out. I sent him a fairly long, involved email as to why I want to go. Has nothing to do with anyone here. Short thing is that I had enough gak thrown on my plate in real life that posting on a forum where I feel less and less a valuable part of is less and less important. And I need to focus on the important stuff, not trying to fight to remain a member where I am one only by ten-year technicality at this point. I don’t bring anything to the table anymore, and I’m not getting what I want either. So...it’s time to say goodbye. I’ll lurk in N&R since it’s an easy place to get info for releases. But that’s all. The AoS section is dead, I’ve worn out my interest in 40k, and the media section probably gets me in the most trouble.

I can tell you all I’m a Trump supporter, if that makes it easier to see me go!

Let's not venture into politics, please!

Just replying now . Will give you my email in case you would like to reconsider in 6 months / when life circumstances change. Cheers

See, this is where I’d lose patience... guy that doesn’t want to be part of the site, publicly complaining that he hasn’t been locked out fast enough.

The Mod team deals with crap in a highly professional manner, and that deserves to be pointed out.

Yeah that was a really weird 'look at me I've been here so long I feel like I'm important, but you guys should lock me out because I can't stay away.' If Peregrine could step away without even so much as a goodbye..

Hey guys, for what it's worth that's not how I viewed it / I don't think that's what was meant. We also had some great PMs and I gave timetowaste my email in case he wants to come back in 6 months or the like. He had a lot going on personally and I think it was a wise decision for now!

We also have a site policy of not discussing folks who can't respond (whether they voluntarily or involuntarily had their account locked, for instance) so let's move on and discuss something else wrong with the site please (or if all's good, we can let this thread lie for a bit ).

That's an interesting site policy. Does it apply to only mods or all users? I guess my confusion stems from the fact that honestly I have no idea if a user is locked out(voluntary/involuntary) and to find that I guess I would have to go to their account?

Back to issues with the site - if I were to report someone does it alert the mods that the post within the thread has an alert or does it only alert that the thread has an alert and now you guys have to scroll through all of the posts to find the specific post where someone was either OT or violating the rules in another way?? Knowing which is true would probably help with how much detail I put in the alert.

It's more just if you know someone doesn't have access. It usually comes up in a situation like this, where a mod prompts that the person doesn't have a way to defend themselves so we shouldn't discuss them (at least in a negative light). Definitely not something you need to worry about when posting, just noting it as we meet the criteria here.

The mod alert takes us to the specific post, and also shows who reported it and their comment. If multiple people report the same post, unfortunately we only get to see the first comment and the number of users reporting. But usually if it's a lightning rod like that it gets our attention quickly even with less detail

Yeah I genuinely do not understand why any of that had to be made public. Only thing that makes sense is that he was hoping for someone to convince him to stay.

Couldn’t he just not log on and come back eventually if he ever feels like it?
