Inactivity[edit]

To all those reading this page, my apologies but I will be mostly inactive over the coming months. I have been informed today that my partner has stomach cancer and that prospects for this form o cancer are not that good.

For those who know me, they will know that last year i went through something very similar with my best friend and fortunately he is on the road to recovery. However the news of today has clearly come as somewhat of a shock.

I am a bit numb at the moment. With not much to say (an oddity for me). I will continue to lurk and may pop on and off in the coming months when I feel able.

I am not a religious man but I will leave you with a blessing from my home country, the sentiment of which has always meant a great deal to me:


May the road rise to meet you, May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face, The rains fall soft upon your fields. And until we meet again, May God hold you in the palm of his hand.

May God be with you and bless you: May you see your children's children. May you be poor in misfortune, Rich in blessings. May you know nothing but happiness From this day forward.

May the road rise up to meet you May the wind be always at your back May the warm rays of sun fall upon your home And may the hand of a friend always be near.

May green be the grass you walk on, May blue be the skies above you, May pure be the joys that surround you, May true be the hearts that love you.

Warm regards to all the editors of the wiki and to those you hold dear. -- Salome User salome sig2.png 06:41, 13 January 2011 (UTC)

My thoughts are with you both, Salome. Take care <3 --KOKUOU 12:42, 13 January 2011 (UTC)
You've gotta be tough, bro. I can't imagine how hard that must be on you. -Cursed Angel 熱 13:02, 13 January 2011 (UTC)
Good luck to both of you. Here's hoping to beat the odds. - Tanetris 18:09, 13 January 2011 (UTC)

Oh, now I know why I haven't seen you in so long. I'm sorry to hear about your partner. I hope he is improving, and although you aren't religious, I'll pray for his recovery. I'm sure there's nothing we can do to help; however, if there's even anything we can do (support emotionally, monetarily, etc.) let us know.
I would strongly recommend counseling for any grief that you're going through. In my line of work, I meet quite a few counselors and many of them do pro bono work all over the US or at least have contacts. Let me know if you'd be interested in that.

It is with deep sadness that I type this, but my partner lost his battle against cancer at 7:05 on the morning of the 4th November. Edward approached his illness with bravery and grace and was an inspiration to all who knew him and my life will always be darker now, without his smile, intelligence and warmth to brighten it. He was a good and decent man, who thought of those around him before himself and who never lost his sense of adventure and rapier wit. He was the best of me and not a day will go by where I dont miss him. He was and continues to be my soulmate and thus with all that in mind, I have came here to say it is unlikely that I will return to this wiki in the near future, but I wanted to say that the friends I made here and the times I spent on this wiki, were joyous ones. Stay well and enjoy everyday and hopefully see you all again somewhere down the road. Blessings -- Salome User salome sig2.png 19:17, 12 November 2011 (UTC)

I was really hoping for some good news on this front. Hold your head high and don't lose touch with your friends; you and I have never exactly been close, but I know what a recovery's like and what a bad one's like, and I truly hope you come out of this ok, whether that be next week, next month, our next year. -- Armond WarbladeUser Armond sig image.png 02:19, 13 November 2011 (UTC)

Just fyi[edit]

It's "albeit", not "all be it". -- ArmondUser Armond sig image.png{{Bacon}} 20:59, 26 February 2011 (UTC)

Game update talk page template[edit]

Concerning your comment, Tennessee Ernie Ford has already created a game update talk page template in his user space. I think it hasn't been used yet. --Silver Edge 04:17, 2 March 2011 (UTC)

You (and any other admins) have my permission to use that page as a sandbox to craft an appropriate note or template, if that should be of interest.  — Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 04:43, 2 March 2011 (UTC)
