    SotA is the first game where I have read and followed the forums regularly and so it was a new experience for me to get to “know” community members by their writings. Over the past 4 years many have come and gone, and some who have gone I miss because I really enjoyed reading their contributions. Three that come to mind off the top of my head in chronological order of when I started following them are:

    CaptainJackSparrow: An odd candidate perhaps. Anyone remember him? He used to post during the early releases and he wrote wittily in the third person. He stopped posting around the time when you had to spend $5 to post in the forum. I don’t think he ever purchased or played the game, but his feedback was fun to read.

    Budner: He gave me a reason to laugh every day. (EDIT: I think he merely changed his profile name and went underground but he isn't making frequent jokes any more)

    Baron Drocis Fondorlatos (BDF): I could never play the game he wanted because it would be much too hard. And his main concern was the state of PVP, which doesn’t affect me because I don’t PVP. But his articulate posts were a pleasure for me to read, and I enjoyed his intelligent arguments. I recently visited his old POT Rat’s Nest (surprised that it was still there) and was sad to see it deserted and empty, the wonderful maze of row houses gone.

    Lucky for me, other posters I enjoy are still around, but I still miss some of the ones who have gone, many of whom I haven’t mentioned here.

    I miss Eriador Moonstone. That crazy guy who had the website with the purple llama art. Budner used to make me laugh as well :D

    Oh, and TheMadHermit, too.

    Heavens yes! I especially watched all the Tour Guide videos that TheMadHermit made. They were fantastic, as were the later ones that were posted by E N V Y . Those were good times, and I was very sad when TheMadHermit left.

    Yea, Budner would top my list.....
    But I'm the eternal optimist and with the recent changes/additions I see us beginning to move on an upward trend once again.... :)
    I'm thinking some of those guys may be coming back......
    Time will tell..................

    The vast majority of people being pined for in this thread have quit the game in disgust, pure & simple. You're unlikely to see them again.

    That's the stone cold truth of it, and when you look at how much some of them were into this game $$$ wise for, it really makes you think.

    I mean that you approach to SotA usually isn't...that...optimistic.
    But nice to see that the recent changes seem to swing a couple of ppl round.

    You're referring to the times I've called Port out for doing dumb stuff, then yea.... I guess you could say I'm more optimistic atm, given the fact that we've finally gotten some "Quality of Life" changes that people have been asking for since when -- Forever.
    Yes, I am more optimistic now that we're moving forward without a lot of the stuff that made us move backwards.
    Nice of you to notice..........

    When you leave in disgust I'll miss you for being one of the masters at interjecting a negative comment at every opportunity!:)

    EDIT: I wasn't trying to be sarcastic.

    I believe @Time Lord disappears for extremely long stretches related to his employment.
