Slightly off topic, but I remember a thread a while back in which we presented melee challenges to Shiver and he posted the result in video form. If anything would give the forum a spark, I would think that a similar thread  with good Star Control players in the community would do it.

I do have a few ideas for challenges, if anyone is up for it.

Although this video wouldn't look pretty, if there's a good way to defeat a Slylandro with a Syreen, I'd like to see it.

melee challenges

Nope, not doing more of those. I would say more, but this thread is about Valaggar, not me.

Sounds rather bitter, but OK I guess we'll leave it at that.

Looks like you may very well get your wish in some form, Shiver.

Ahahaha yup!

I actually have Valaggar's email, but I'm not going to send him  message. He was a troubled young man, and this place only added to that. While we may not be better off without him, he may well be better off without us.

Valaggar was a nice guy, bur pretty sensitive all in all. He wasn't really able to roll with the punches and shake off unimportant internet drama. He got hounded pretty mercilessly here and battered a bit over at the SCDB as well. It's not SC specific, I think any forum/site he joined would cause him the same kind of problems.

Then I guess you've learned something new today huh? Words can hurt and some people take things more seriously than others. Not everyone has a thick skin. Especially young people who aren't as blasé about the internet as some of us older stage hands.  Beyond anything else, I think Valaggar wanted to be liked and accepted. That didn't work out, and so he was disappointed and hurt.

Guys like Valaggar and Jaychant just seem young and a bit obnoxious. Probably more of a stage than anything. I know I went through that stage when I first discovered the net and (hopefully) am a bit wiser for it.

With a little patience and understanding from the forum members, guys like Valaggar can and will come around in the long run.

He was liked well enough when he left. When was Val ever abused on SCDB?

The similarities (many known posting sprees, people yelling at them) are superficial only IMO. It's not fair to lump those two together.

I'm gonna go ahead and confess that I have no idea what either of you are talking about. First guess would Nuclear's shitposting, but that is so far from what I think would improve the forum that the notion borders on offensive.

Val was/is an intelligent, passionate fan and we are poorer in his absence. I've heard from him lately and all I'll say is that I think he should be left alone until he returns on his own, if ever.

Then this was an excercize in futility, perhaps it's better if this topique is closed then Smiley.

Right around the end he ran into a lot of hostility with sockpuppest and crapposting. He also had a rough time in the religion thread. And a few other instances. Not all of it was undeserved, but still.

It warms my heart to hear that.

I dunno. My heart got warmed and that's well worth a topic i think. Valaggar's might be as well if he ever returns and finds it. Sometimes doing good is easy.
