Where is not_important?


I reminded myself of this guy today and he has been quite a regular poster here and just dissapeared, checked his posts, last post in sept 2011.

Is he even alive!?

Can someone please fill me in on the Sauron situation?
I read his thread about leaving, but it was rather unclear.

Speaking of which what happened to " The WiZard is In "

I did not care for his method of posting everything rather than just uploading
it as an attachment , but otherwise the information he provided was rare and
historic.

I greatly miss The Wizard is In's posts as well. And qs, of course. At least their posts are semi-immortalized here, I suppose.

Quicksilver??


Has anyone heard from Quicksilver yet? I can't help but think that something must have happened to him. :(

Polverone posted a thread asking about him. His is very missed in the EM section.

Not on topic to person but good place to ask, what happened to Peach, has not been here in 14 months and not posted in around 17 months.

The wizard is likely dead, as for what happened to not_important, well its likely not important, my guess is an effective dose of SSRI's.

Sauron I believe may have kicked the bucket... I was in contact with him for a fair while after he left here but that communication ceased a good while ago. I tried searching for an obituary but to no avail.

As for Peach, he's doing good. I'm in fairly regular contact with him. He's unable to experiment independently at the moment due to a change in personal circumstances.

not to mention chemcamtv, i recall this was his name on SM aswell..?
he told me around.. 3-4 months ago he was gonna go to work somewhere for 2 months and be back in october i recall it as..
and he just didnt come back?

im abit afraid he might have boasted about his creations as in HE creations and some people might have gotten some serious chemphobia sensation, work accident perhaps too, but thats less likely to be completely fatal, right?

For the record...


I've resigned from moderation. It's unlikely that I'll visit much if at all. I haven't died in an accident—yet. I wish you all well, and urge you to stay safe & cite sources! Goodbye.

P.S. franklyn, stay crazy.

Wow, I'm quite new here, but yours is a name I know already. Who is going to keep SM from falling into an out of control jumble of cross posts, kitchen remodel ads, and a breeding ground for kewls and cooks. It is a somewhat dirty job, but you did it well. Well I sincerely wish you luck.

I second that ─ the moderator's task is surely difficult enough without having to endure constant sniping from a gaggle of professional malcontents . . .
I didn't agree with everything you did bfesser, but you are/were doing a tough job and doing it well!

I hope this is considered a worthwhile post, because I am the third saying it.
I third that – your task was difficult, but you generally made good decisions and if someone had a problem with what you were doing, you tried to fix it. Good Luck!

This is truly a big change. Although he sometimes can be upsetting, I've always know that the forum was much better off with him, then it will be without him....:( I'm sad to see him go.

i thought bfesser pretty much explained all that he did quite well and even reconsidered some some of his choices that caused unending controversy. i hope his voiced opponents do not think that all their combated opinions now have merit because of his absence because by FAR bfesser was more right than wrong.

I think that he did a good job and would listen to complaints it's a shame he's leaving.
Also we should use this thrad to tell the forum when somebody leaves.

I agree. Also this thread should be used if someone hears of someone dying or getting injured and having to stop doing chemistry.

Sorry to see you go bfessor, the amount of time you spent sifting and tidying has not gone unnoticed and is appreciated by at least a few of us. Thank you.

I think he made a complete mess of the forum, personally. Every other moderator manages to do so discretely, yet his presence and indecision is thrust in everyone's face in innumerable threads, eg. http://www.sciencemadness.org/talk/viewthread.php?tid=29059&...

He did do a very good job at trying to keep the spoon feeding requests to a minimum (not just only for things like drugs and energetics) and tin-foil hat type conspiracy threads too. Basically making it look less like forums such as "chemicalforums" which is a junkyard of half answered questions and decaying threads.

Also... Things like the topical compendium and whatnot are not what I consider making a mess of the forum, personally. That takes a lot of unpaid time to do. He did have a more strict/direct way of moderating but anyone was free to discuss things with him via PM...

It will be interesting to see if there is much of a change in how many useless posts remain around, cluttering up the place.
