Goodbye, my lovelies!

Post by darvit » Sun 1st Feb 2009

So I'm officially leaving FanGathering. It's about time I did away with the silly hiatus threads that I keep on having to do. XD School, family, friends, and other commitments are eating up most of my time, and I found myself gradually having to push FG back down on my priority list. Don't get me wrong, this site is dear to me. FG cheered me up when I first moved here in the United States and the people that I have been OL friends with on here are always going to have a very special place in my heart. I still have loads of ideas for FanGathering, but Time is against me: it has this annoying habit of running away, never again to be found :(

As I said earlier, I'm in nursing school right now, using it for my pre-med because I want to be practical [my fallback option]. I never thought it was going to be tough, but I guess we have to make life tough sometimes... otherwise, what are we living for, if not for that lasting sweet victory after overcoming a tough hurdle?

I will miss everyone on here. :( Everything that I said in the Appreciation Thread [hey, a rhyme! :awesome:] still holds true, with the addition of the [relatively] newer members who have made this site awesome: P5, Maeve, /b/, Meova, carino, cabaline, Feandril, Kagoma, HS9, and all the wonderful Site Team members. :D To all the really new members whom I've never met, I wish we did.

Thank you for giving me this opportunity to serve you. I have to go now.

PS: Where to find me:


Feel free to add me on MSN, FB [if you find me! :lol:], etc.
I'm retired. No PMs, please. Visit this link to know where to get a hold of me.

Darvit, you will always have a place near my heart and a place on my MSN friends list :D

I am very sorry that you are leaving, I can only hope you'll be back in a year if it gets easier (lol, easier :D) but at least...

At least you have seen :awesome: come to life, and what an :awesome: it was...

[sing to the tune of Podmoskovnye Vechera] Не забудь и ты эти летние
Подмосковные вечера.


Or in translation: You, also, do not forget, the summer evenings near Moscow.

Well, like that, but AF evenings :D

Good luck in life D, you will not be forgotten!

I love you guys :]

An era is over...

In honour of your long stay I have sifted out your best quotes from the book of -1000... You say a shipload of awesome things, so it could take a while to read! (Took a while to compile, too, lol x'P)

I have that effect on shoutboxes, sometimes.

--

Counting to -1000 isn't easy. This truly is a noble cause.

--

Wow, I just got -888 on an unlucky day. Now that cheered me up a bit.

--

The world is the problem.

--

Ah, so it's begun for you as well.

--

Mentos, don't feel sorry. I just have a bad habit of quoting old stuff. It didn't mean anything at all.

--

Dissected a pig fetus this afternoon. Poor little pig.

--

"All for the sake of Science," I guess.

--

Uncle Sam wants YOU to join the army. No thanks--I'd rather post on the 1000! thread, honestly. XD

--

I actually received this recruitment letter from a military college around 2 months ago--and I'm not even a US citizen! To get deployed and be forced to fight in a war I don't believe in? No effing way!

--

For some reason, that part made me really laugh.

--

Now where did that cafepress.com idea go...?

--

-767 <---Ooh, a bigger Boeing jet, Sofie!

--

Boredom is bliss.

--

We should get some bumper-sticker slogans like these!

--

I also would like to know who the supporters are.

--

There's a Boeing 747 [the bigger one] and 737 [a smaller one].

--

And yeah, a poll won't be too pointless, I think. There's quite a number of us who are rather curious.

--

Well, she's in Bangkok.

--

There's a city down here that's just called Monroe.

--

People come in waves. I think it just so happened that everyone was so busy last week.

--

All of the Michaels I know in real life [I guess online, too!] think they're like God.

--

We should go look for more pointless causes after we reach -1000.

--

Yeah, posting with you and Grav 'til morning sure is fun.

--

I don't believe in Farewell threads either.

--

All good things must come to an end.

--

And isn't "kawaii" Japanese for "cute"?

--

And my summer is over now.

--

You know what, I think I went through that stage as well.

--

Aww, we don't have a smiey that looks sleepy.

*yawns*

I'm sleepy.

--

The sun burnsss us! It burnssss us, my preciousss.....

--

You do a great deal of editing, and it looks like it would be a very useful feature for you.

--

Oh, and wow, your avatar is back!

--

I actually thought that the trash can thing is funny. [Better make sure Mentos doesn't read that!]

--

Glad that you have a sense of humor.

--

Total anarchy works well--for this movement, at least.

--

Sounds like world domination to me!

--

But the question is: what happens after we reach -1000?

--

Oh man, we sound like some weird online cult!

--

D'Arvit!

Busted.

--

On a related note, I'm tired.

--

Farewell suburban hell!

--

Yeah, they do rhyme!

--

It's giving me tears of joy.

--

So I was the 1337th pageview.

--

Yes, so keep singing.

--

Yeah, visas are annoying, but we have to get them to stay legal.

--

I will check it out, just to see if it's based on Cassie's.

-568

*returns*

It's not, thankfully! [The LOTR one is evil.]

--

This would go down in history among the ranks of the greatest causes of all time.

--

Don't worry, sooner or later, someone will notice and get us back on track.

--

Oh God, somebody's dancing in front of me.

--

I wanted to burst out laughing, but then again, my friend would think I'm crazy--not to mention that the guy might take offence and challenge me to a dance-off.

--

I mean, what would you do if somebody seated in front of you suddenly started dancing like an idiot [while seated]?

--

Hmm, maybe you can dance?

--

There was confusion in the previous page.

--

I knew that Dreamhost was too good to be true!

--

Glad you're doing nothing! I like it when I don't have to do anything.

--

Have a nice day, MMK! [Ooh, rhyming!]

--

This server is very unreliable.

--

There's this blouse I have with lots of shiny silver stars on it--I've never seen anyone else wear it.

--

This movement is really moving!

--

Darn, I didn't see your name at the bottom of the forum's index page.

--

Stripping as a form of art? Well, that could be a good topic for debate.

--

If not, maybe a reliable online test would do the trick.

--

Oh my, I should work on my reading skills as well.

--

I'm making this short so we can speed up the posting.

--

Don't worry, nobody's looking like an idiot--that's what forums are for.

--

American society is pressuring me to get a job.

--

I think I've had this conversation with someone here before.

--

I'd like to be a cardiac surgeon and perhaps practice acupuncture as well.

--

I sometimes imagine myself going on medical missions to remote places, so I guess this could be my calling. I just have many doubts, that's all.

--

Looks like I should take my own advice as well.

--

Ah, yeah, your sig looks "tamed" now.

--

To "buy" is to purchase something, whereas to "bye" is to say goodbye.

--

I call this "young, wild, and free / failure to launch".

--

Yay, more supporters for our random cause!

--

-414
Well, that's a palindromic number. And it is also Abundant, Composite, Even, Evil, Practical, Ulam, and Undulating, according to this link.

--

-416
That's the area code of Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

--

It's pretty clear that Norweigan and English are very similar!

--

A video iPod would cost around ~$399.00

--

It's not as exciting as a 404 error, though.

--

I think that this is a pretty depressed 404 error page: http://www2.ozin.com/bongo

--

*LoL* I told you, you have to sleep eventually.

--

I was actually torn between using on and in while I was making that Uncle Sam sig.

--

I opted for "on" just because.

--

English is a difficult language. Stupid rules of grammar.

--

The last time I checked, there wasn't even a Pokemon # 390. Time's a-changin'.

--

This is great, we're making the 1000 thread very educational.

--

Well, 3/97 is March 1997 and -3/97=-0.0309278351. :D

--

Lol, a Firefox version of the animated Opera-loving smiley on my signature.

--

All the shiny banners are so overwhelming... Especially Uncle Sam.

--

I guess I should keep looking for more "noble causes" such as the -1000 movement.

--

This is fast.

--

I don't think Nindra would like to hear about that.

--

They're rectangular this time.

--

I can make you a smaller better one--a prettier one, if that's what you want.

--

Very MMK-ish.

--

Is that Harry?

--

Okay, this is me trying to help.

--

Not at all pretty, but it gets straight to the point.

--

Anyone who supports this pointless noble cause, feel free to use this as your signature!

--

Yay, a believer!

--

Yeah, let's drop Math for once.

--

From now on, posts in the Forum Games section will not increase our postcounts. Yay.

--

PS: I'm not a treehugger, by the way.

--

But isn't guilt-free spamming more enjoyable?

--

We've passed 1000 so we had to count back to 0. Then we had nothing else to do so we are counting backwards to -1000.

--

Chronic glitteratiobssessoitosis!

--

Yep, it's on 1000!, alright.

--

OMG! Our posts still do increase here in the Forum Games section??!

--

Wow, if you're superstitious, tell him to throw a party and share the luck from his numbers. XD

--

Yeah, what a no-nonsense approach to language! So I guess it's pronounced as treh-pa-vee-kah?

--

Oh well. Life.

--

You should try getting a pet, MMK.

--

Yeah, it's pretty stupid, actually.

--

I'm the only one in my family who has 20/20 vision. Okay, well, I think it's 25/20. But never mind.

--

I don't need glasses, despite my obsessive computering [computing?]

--

FG is very dear to me, too.

--

I still find it amazing how forums like these actually have a huge impact on its members.

--

On the last day of class, I asked everyone to sign my school uniform--I brought a spare one, of course, which I asked everyone to sign.

--

I found out later that writing on our school uniforms was considered vandalism, so we had to do it in secret.

--

Very blasphemous, but super entertaining.

--

Now all this yellow talk's made me want to listen to Coldplay's "Yellow".

--

lalalalala

It works for me.

--

Sleep is my favorite luxury.

--

It's fascinating how our conversation suddenly shifted from Eoin Colfer to cheese.

--

Anyway, I like mozarella cheese sticks.

--

I'm talking about long sticks of mozarella cheese covered in breadcrumbs and then fried! They work well with marinara sauce.

--

This kind of talk makes me hungry...

--

It was a website that sells butterfly pupae.

--

That's it for my butterfly story.

--

I have to get my bodyclock on track.

--

No, the third one isn't Colfer--that's me.

--

I still believe that the imagination is still the best illustrator.

--

*LoL* MMK got distracted.

--

I mean, I even see her up very early in the morning doing a quick patrol around the forums.

--

Well get crazy with that civilization! :P Browse around FG's world-domination-hungry posts for inspiration, or something.

--

Let's start counting up to -1000, then!

--

MMmn is trigger-happy. Or for lack of a better made-up term, "lock"-happy.

--

But come to think of it, at our forum member's average "posting power", we could reach that in no time.

--

ANZAC. ANZAC. ANZAC.

--

Me and my cluttered mind.

--

It's when people who can't take prozac take anzac.

--

Ok, that was sooo wrong.

--

What? The whole time we've been abusing our post counts and have been really spamming the forum through this thread??!

--

I wish they would play around with their car somewhere far from here.

--

*raises cardiac defibrillator's power one notch higher*

--

What about some poetry reading?

--

Oh! what joy to see the forums fair-teeming with smiles!

--

Why's everyone so crazy about Dr.Who?

--

If phpBB were a real person, I bet you would marry her. [And we're assuming phpBB is a she ;) ]

--

The XD smiley is back! I'm so happy! XD

--

Don't be to tough with your mind

--

Aw,nobody's saying anything

--

I'm not vegetarian. I'm meatatarian

--

Haha, the egg song is contagious.





On a personal note: I LOVE YOU AND WILL MISS YOU AND YOU'RE ONE OF MY BESTEST ONLINE FRIENDS EVVEEEER!!!! We'll hopefully stay sort-of-in-touch through dA etc...

Oh, its sad to hear that you are going!!
If I remeber correctly you were the first person to welcome me to this site!! :)
Reading those quotes was fun, its great to know that you had a great time here. ^_^
And thank you, its odd to think that I've been here for over a year and I am still a newbie somewhere XD Although then again I can't talk, I still think of HS9 and Livvy as new members :D That makes me feel old now :lol:
I hope that things go amazingly well for you because I can't think of anyone who deserves it more! I also- like /b/- hope that you are not so busy that you can't have a quick check-up on this place.
It'll be quite odd here knowing that you aren't keeping your ever watch-full eyes on us :)
Good luck, I'll miss you!

Dar, I'll miss you... Even though you weren't on that much anymore, still, I thought of you as a regular member of Fg. I'll miss our PM's... Though we haven't PM'ed in a long time, I still do miss them. Why won't stupid Kopete let me talk to yahoo users? :( Promise me to hop over here once in a while, please? Please?

Well, if you don't, then I guess this really is the end. Thanks so much for being here, Dar, and for everything you did. We will all miss you like hell!

This is devastating.
*sigh* I'm so sad!
You're one of my favourites! You're always the nicest. Augh...
So. Sad.
Good luck on everything. I can still creep talk to you on Facebook, so all is well.
Your quotes are great, haha. (Sofie, you are awesome for that. And other things. But right now that.)

My favourite quote by you:
darvit wrote:I love infectious diseases.


Oh, good times, good times.


Good luck with everything. Try not too forget us too badly when you're a doctor. :)
We'll miss you muchly!
Thanks to darvit and /b/for my signature. :D

Darvit! I am so sad to see you go! You've been such a big part of my FG life since I started here!

Lucky for me, I still have facebook and my blog to contact you, but it will be so sad! I'll talk about Darvit, our lovely and talented ex-admin, and they won't know who I mean! Saaad!

But keep in contact with me, you hear?

You may not know who I am (I just skulk around the fanfics usually) but I know how much you have done for this site and I'm gonna miss you!!! Good luck and move out of this country ASAP, you know, before it devours your soul and what-not... ;)
