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)

Good luck to you and your partner. You'll be missed around here. Erasculio 10:21, 13 January 2011 (UTC)
Best of luck in these hard times Salome. WhyUser talk:Why 12:29, 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)
Good luck, man. Hope things turn out for the best. --User Wandering Traveler Sig2.png Traveler (talk) 18:45, 13 January 2011 (UTC)
Ou.. sorry to here that, salome :/, all the best for you and your partner. --NeilUser Neil2250 sig icon6.png 18:48, 13 January 2011 (UTC)
God bless, Salome. Stay strong. User Felix Omni Signature.pngelix Omni 22:18, 13 January 2011 (UTC)
Good luck to both of you. I hope everything works out well. Aquadrizzt (talk)(contribs) 01:14, 20 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)

Sysop rights cleanup[edit]

Hello, I appreciate you've been inactive for a fair while, but on the odd chance you've still got your talk page watchlisted/notifications enabled, I thought out of courtesy I would leave a message (admittedly I'm going to copy-paste the same message for all affected users). (1) We're going through a bit of a review of which inactive users have sysop rights (including reconfirmation), and (2) here's a link to yours: Guild Wars Wiki:Requests for adminship/Salome. -Chieftain Alex 19:02, 30 May 2020 (UTC)

It's been a while[edit]

Hey Salome, I noticed your comments on the administrative cleanup talk page, and figured I'd drop in to say hi. I hope life's been treating you well these past nine years. You were always a delight to wiki with. Keep on being awesome! WhyUser talk:Why 23:51, 1 June 2020 (UTC)

Hello old friend. I was looking at my page and saw your name and was like "i wonder what Why is doing these days?"; its been too long. Life has been strange but the last few years have gone well but busy. I'm now training to be a doctor. (which is worrying to everyone.). Anyway I how has life been treating you? you were always a joy to work with on the wiki and I have over the years, wondered how you are. I know whichever corner of the internet you've ended up on over the past few years, you're probably making a better place. (hugs) -- Salome User salome sig2.png 23:55, 1 June 2020 (UTC)
Medical doctor? That's great, sounds like a very appropriate career choice if you ask me! I myself stayed at university, currently working towards the less immediately helpful kind of doctorate ;). As for the internet, GW2 was never my speed I'm afraid. I instead fell down the rabbit hole of Morrowind modding, and am part of a little community trying to rebuild Tamriel, so to say. We plan to be done by 2090. Anyway, all the best to you and yours, great to hear from you again! WhyUser talk:Why 00:43, 2 June 2020 (UTC)

Just a slight point to clarify[edit]

It doesn't offend, but it appears you have referred to me as female in the past and I feel it wouldn't go amiss to point out that I am actually male. Really, that's all. I highly recommend gender neutral pronouns until gender (or sex) is specifically brought to light online to avoid these scenarios in the future. Have a good day! :] - Infinite - talk 20:35, 1 September 2020 (UTC)

Apologies Infinite. I wasn't intentionally assuming your gender... I think I may have mentally merged you accidentally with another user, who does use female pronouns. Apologies though. -- Salome User salome sig2.png 23:10, 1 September 2020 (UTC)

Reconfirmation and standby admins[edit]

Hey Salome. So I assume it's a stupid question whether you're willing to be a standby admin now that that proposal's passed. Would you mind updating your candidate statement on your reconfirmation and we'll see about leaving it open just a bit longer for people to put input in and get that resolved. Much appreciated. - Tanetris (talk) 16:47, 28 October 2020 (UTC)
