Who do you miss?

Me, I miss Ray Heinrich... I'd do anything to get him back here, including bashing billy with a wet towel until he begged for mercy.

I'd also love to see Ca ne fait rien (Stef) and only rob back. I see that Rob kind of wandered through a bit ago... someone put a leash on that boy.
i can't stand ray Hysterical though i would enjoy the wet towel stuff....actually i do like him (as far as i see him on the net) and i understand the anti side of things, he's always welcomed back if he decides he can stand a bit of red text Smile

i miss dale, tecktak (though he's not been gone long and abu, it was good to see him posting in the how far thread. i miss the sewer rats having a workout as well. i wouldn't mind seeing steff again. i also liked ray.
I'm sure I never thought I'd miss Dale and Tectak... but I do Big Grin They bring a certain je ne sais quoi... grumpy old bastards...
i like their solid down to earth replies. sometimes i cringe at what they say but they were honest without having bad intent. i like tecktak's sense of humour and abu as it as well, i wonder if they're related?
Abu doesn't have any relatives, he's a pod person.

Or a prototype, I'm not sure which Big Grin

and yes, i'd rather a few honest grumpy miserable bastards than a million backpatters with stock compliments
i'm reminded of mork and mindy abu abu Hysterical

think any of them will return?
They will if they find out about the cake

it's just like this one:

why of effin why did you do that Angry
sj will be doing a jig Big Grin
sj's jigging was always my goal
how'd ya like to put some cream on that baby sj Big Grin

do you think we should invite ray back? would he come? Big Grin
I don't know, I'm not in contact with him, maybe someone else is
jacks in his forum, maybe he can ask Smile

oh jackkkk!
He jacks in his forum?

hmmm... I suspect we may need to move this underground at some point... Big Grin
i still miss grannyjill!
This was Jill's last post:

I've received a 'missing you' message, I realise that it is automatically generated but nevertheless...here I am. I hit a concrete wall, poetically speaking, around Christmas time and no longer consider myself a poet. However, here is an old rondelet of mine.

I can reach out to her. I think she was finding workshopping uncomfortable. When you go through persistent creative blocks it can also be frustrating. I'll see how she's doing.
Yeah I miss Dale Sad

He was very helpful to me and always had massive amounts of corny jokes to pummel me with via email . . . those were the days.

I also miss grannyjill posting homespun rondelets in the wrong sections Sad

I miss seeing cigarbabe creep through-

And what happened to Sid?

Oh and Abu I miss a little but he hasn't really left left . . . Big Grin You old meany :p
We had that guy Lawrence for awhile. He wrote some good stuff then vanished. I wonder where he went...nature of the Internet I suppose.
Hey! I am not, and have not ever, been gone. In fact, I am less gone than many others. Perhaps I do not contribute as frequently as I might; perhaps I have a quick canter through anything interesting; perhaps I hold my peace. Perhaps, like General de Gaulle, I await 'L'Appel'. Perhaps I should leave, so as to revel in the pleas from the pit, for my return. You do not appreciate me, that's it. Milton understood. He and I also serve, while merely standing and waiting. Surprised about Dale --he'll be back, I think. Damn it I owe him a reply to a long thing he wrote, an IM.

Yep, Jill was a loss. P'raps, p't-etre and quizas, in addition to the work-shopping, there should be a simple show-case, identical in every way, to the other options, but without the expectation that there will be further alterations. If you finish a painting, and it gets accepted, you don't expect to paint over it-- though comments might make you do something differently next time around.

Is there a flounce emoticon? Confused
ooh la la... de Gaulle of some people, what? I'm sure billy didn't mean that you were missing, Ed, just that you're old :p

A showcase is more or less available in Miscellaneous or For Fun -- in both fora there's an option to specify the kind of feedback you want.
