    Yeah, I'll really miss this. GS characters and players don't come together for much of anything because of our different interests, but light-speed spellups and armor adjustments brought together more of the community than anything else. And that was even before he added imbeds, loresinging, roshambo, Cards Against Humanity... talk about something for everyone.

    Too bad to see Dreaven and Whirlin go. I haven't been very thrilled about the direction of the game the last couple years, either.

    Not very interested in picking apart or elaborating on any of the personal details that went into these decisions, except one...

    Whirlin ported his guides to gswiki during the new Player Guide Contest, and was selected among the winners, despite an extensive amount of said wiki work being moving existing guides to the wiki and overall not very collaborative.

    Never had any issues with Whirlin concerning the wiki myself which I can recall, particularly as his approach was rather reasonable (i.e. not trying to commandeer general pages as his own etc). Still, let's be objective and note that the guides were put up during a contest, he was selected among winners, and got rewards, and took them down a couple years later. If anyone wants to add a dash of subjective "usual suspects" on the wiki, pfffft.

    I take it your ears were burning, Kaldonis? I'm sorry you can't accept that there is a moderating problem on the wiki.
    You had better pay your guild dues before you forget. You are 113 months behind.

    So Whirlin was rewarded for entering those guides and STILL ran away with his ball to try and make money off it? Wow, thats SUPER fucked up.

    I missed the part about trying to make money off his guides. Can someone TLDR the part I missed?

    That wasn't my point. But I guess I shouldn't be surprised that GMs, in-game player organizations, and even the nebulous wiki team gets thrown under the bus in these kinds of threads a bit rashly.

    Whirlin was always cool with me, and I'm genuinely sad to see him go.
