So, two legendary members of the HoF with *immense* contributions to DDO have gone in a period of 30 days -- Mikal and Ore_ELe.

Thoughts?

I'm sad about one of them.

Yeah, I think Ore's frustration will ebb and he'll return. Though, I think a member can only go through a leave-return cycle some many times before departure become permanent.

I can't believe I am gone for one weekend and I come back to find Ore has left DDO...wow.

People will come back. They always do.

Personally I don't find the frustrated departures and grand goodbye threads particularly indicative of anything. When I took a hiatus from DDO, it happened gradually. I posted less and less and at some point, stopped logging on to the site.

People must move on. Like others have said, some will pop back on, others have run their course.

No reason to get worked up. I have had H.S., then college, then work friends that for normal reasons I have move on from. Some you reconnect with years later, others remain only as memory. Just a natural thing. No apocalyptic sign for the site.

Back, but not active. I probably should stay around at least long enough to submit something to the HoF (when does that come up anyway?).

I deactivated my account to decrease the urge to login while I worked on important stuff (which isn't wholly finished yet, but I needed to update my signature with some of that important stuff).

To decrease the amount of time I lose here, I've also made the unofficial guide fully editable by everyone.

What about all the dozens of others who have come and gone before them. One or two people don't define DDO. They will be replaced by someone new who gets the DDO bug then they will burn out just like all the rest. I'm still here. It isn't individuals who keep me here, it's the format of the website and the desire to hear other points of view and challenge them if I disagree. When individuals play the race card/bigot card or resort to personal attacks then you know you have a better view point.

Why do you always start something...

People are just insinuating the people who have left will be missed.

If you are going to quit just quit and go away. I can't count how many times people say they are leaving and then just come back. Are they leaving?>>>>>>>>>>>>> really leaving? Or will they return in a few weeks? I will believe they left after 1 year passes. Until then I will continue to count.
