Off course he can ^^

And I hope by reading all of this, he can become a bit more happier ... . ^^;

I just wish that he simply resign instead of leaving the forum T__T

What the deuce, I'm gone for 3 months and this happens?! D:

I really hate to see you go, but I do know how stressful it can be to be an administrator for forums. 9 years of handling bull without any physical benefit can break even the most fair- tempered of people.

That being said, I really am grateful for all you have done and your helpful remarks on my first project. Wherever you may go, I wish you the best of luck.

Let me strongly disagree with this statement. As an old crowd, I love the game. It showed me how much of "noob" with unrealistic point of view I was. And how long it took to get rid of wanting to write epic length visual novels. It was beautiful game and I am glad I read it.

As for Blue lemma going, I am not following any of this drama, because, well, who cares. I want to make visual novels, not socialize on forums. So, bon voyage, I suppose. It is after all your choice.

I've been through what you've been through, BlueLemma, and I have to state that your tenacity far exceeds mine. I had one guy try to bring down my forum for a very long time, and after two years, I gave up. I don't think I could have gone nine if I tried.

This is an amazing forum. I'm still new here, but you've created a wonderful community that has driven me to do even better in my VN. Advice, support, constructive criticism, all of it has helped me grow creatively, and we all have you to thank for all of this. Hopefully, your time away from the drama will help reduce your stress levels.

Take care of yourself!
The best reason to get up in the morning is to outdo yourself: to do it better than you've ever done it before. But if you haven't done it better by nightfall... look at your globe and pick a spot: it's always morning somewhere.

That's fine, we can disagree. I frankly don't see much difference from his game and bullying (humiliating someone and then calling it a joke). It's like telling kids there isn't a Santa. There's really a difference if you let them figure it out on their own. This is pretty off-topic, though ...

Blue Lemma, thank you for making this great forum and for being here for so long with words of great encouragement and care. I'm sorry to see that a troll (or many) had such a horrible effect on your experience. Please remember the rest who deeply appreciate the great community you've made.

I know how frustrating this type of person can be-they are beyond reason.
I know this is cliche, but actions speak louder than words when it comes to someone's personality. This type of person really isn't mad at you. He is mad at his mom or dad or something like that. For some reason, instead of getting help, this sort of person lets the anger fester like a toothache, and one day blows up for whatever reason. Its horrible being around someone like that.

I didn't realize all the crap that you go through on a daily basis. I know how people like lordcloudx can make you feel-they can make you mad, frustrated because they don't listen and get upset for petty reasons, sometimes even cry. I am glad that you just walked away. You have shown that you are far more mature than he is. I can guarantee that he does this sort of thing in real life too, and makes everyone around him miserable. And he likes it and feels some sort of release because someone is finally paying attention to him. People like this will yell, cuss at you, and make vulgar comments (or gestures) in public in front of everybody. He thinks he is embarrassing you. In reality, everyone thinks that he is a fruitcake.You didn't grovel and you stood your ground. You didn't let him harrass you.

You did a great job, and I understand that dealing with a ton of people can be quite challenging. If I had to deal with one person like this online, I would probably leave the website and never come back. It is too aggravating to have to deal with this type of person. If it isn't obvious right now, I have been around this type of person a lot... but I am not in a situation right now where I can just say "Enough!" and walk away.

Okay, my personal rant aside, I think that you are very strong, but not a troll that crushes people because he can. I am so glad that you did let this forum grow, and I am glad that you have stuck with it for so long. I hope you find something out there that brings you happiness.

sorry about the drama and sorry about you leaving. maybe after you cool down you can come back again.

ive never seen or experienced any drama around here. but im like the quiet newbie that rly never talked to many people or anything other then a few board exchanges like updating my WIP thread, asking ppl and thanking em for drawing me a picture, posting here and there lol. and everyone seems nice i mean i dont read every little thread or visit every little place every day, but overall it seems like a nice place.

but like the saying goes "one rotten apple spoils the bunch" or something like that, so take care and thanks for making this forum its nice to have a place to go where i can talk to other like-minded people.

Okay that was sudden.

I think most of the members have mentioned whatever can be said. Well, the internet is a crazy place and people do stupid things because it's so easy to get away with it. That's why I'm not very surprised to hear about such things happening. Regardless, you have my gratitude for having started this forum and my respect for your decision. I hope you'll still pop by every once in a while though! And good luck in whatever you choose to do. C:

Oh, man! I just skim through the whole forum for the past few weeks since I can only go online through my phone because of my real-life issues, and once I finally got back on track, I find this. D:

Anway, thank you so much for creating lemmasoft and I wish you luck with whatever path you'll choose to take.

And like all the others here, I hope to see you around as well. ^_^

Thank you, everyone. Like I wrote, most of you are very nice, contribute positively, and are no problem at all :)
