Looks like just a protest to me; user account and submissions all intact.

I hope he ain't gone for good. Admins and rules ain't what makes a website, people are. I hope he sees that the people are fer him, even if the policies are agin' him.

His Hiroshima/Nagasaki GL is gone. Guessing it got taken down* and he is PO'd.

Le sigh.


* I honestly didn't "get" what I had written until several comments. It was *not* meant to be a joke at all - just extremely poor choice of words by me.

Yet another forum user that takes things way to serious and storms off. It's seems BGG gets a couple leave every year.

Why so serious?

What he said.
Always interesting to see his posts and take on things.

Oh, and Van: you are a bad man.

No admin deleted his geeklist as far as I am aware. It is possible he deleted it himself.

I almost said, "Shame to see him go, his contributions were THE BOMB, YO!"


But then I thought, "TOO SOON~!"



Ah, Van...truly, you are the living avatar of my id.

This is very sad.

I wasn't around for the other legendary exits, but contemplating a PatHirtle-less BGG, for whatever reason, is depressing...

Pat's wit, insight and great "gaming with the family" stories are really what BGG is all about, isn't it?

bwa huh?

Le sigh was meant as "I feel for him" not "that is pathetic" if you took it as such. I've gone on my fair share about modding issues and came to the conclusion no one really cared all that much. Pretty much felt like I was becoming an "agitator" so I just stopped caring. Let someone else carry the torch. I got burned by it.

edit:
Ah ic now - changed the wording - it was *not* meant to be a joke - just a very bad choice of words.

Glad to hear that it was not a mod decision at least. Thanks Octavian.

If Pat is gone, I'm very sorry to see that. Definitely a big loss to this community.

Best of luck to you, Pat, and happy gaming!

My BGG experience has grown tremendously since I pretty much stopped using it for anything other than looking up info on games and tracking my collection and plays.

The frustrating thing is: if he's not on BGG, he can't see how much we all want him back!

Dude at least hang out with us in Chit Chat. I basically stay out of the general gaming and BGG general areas - although I do get sucked in occasionally. Much less so recently.

But where do you go to get your daily dose of Monty Python quotes, Lego?

It appears that he deleted a lot of his forum posts too, which makes explaining his disappearing even more confusing given that in some of what's left he supports the very thing he later complains about...? I missed all the hoopla, and what's left doesn't make sense, to me at least.

Like everyone else here, I liked and respected his stuff, and I hope he takes the time to work through whatever's bothering him and returns. But I'll respect him whatever his decision.

I hope Pat realises that he is well liked in BGG and makes a return, I have a lot of respect for Pat. His comments were often well thought out and he showed a lot of respect for others. I often looked at Pats Avatar and thought of Topol Don't ask me why tho.

Deleting your content = taking ball and going home = not cool

C'mon Pat, don't let the admins get to ya.
