I have ended all participation with Wikipedia, so will not be replying to any further messages left here.
Please sign your comments using four tildes (~~~~). Place comments that start a new topic at the bottom of the page by starting a new thread, using a descriptive header. Is your comment missing? It's probably in my archives. I will normally answer on this page. Please note that the talkback template is officially banned on this page! :) So don't use it here; I watch your talk if I've left you a note. Thanks!
I can't believe it's been over three years since you last edited. Seems like yesterday your name was everywhere.
And after all this time, despite my own personal qualms over some of the things you've said, I still miss seeing you around.
It's ultimately your choice whether or not to return (perhaps you're already back, editing under a different username), but regardless of the circumstances behind your apparent departure, just know that you'll always be welcome here should you ever come back. Kurtis(talk) 05:20, 16 May 2013 (UTC)
It is unbelievable. I can't believe how much of my life I spent on here - it's pretty sad actually. I sort of wish I could say I also miss it, but I don't at all. I don't even think about it. Even when I'm browsing for information, I don't think about the time I used make thousands of edits here every month. So, I won't be coming back, ever. Not under this name or another name. I'm no longer interested, and I'm not part of it anymore. I've written a more detailed explanation on my userpage. I'm amazed 261 people still watch it. Majorlytalk 14:36, 31 May 2013 (UTC)
Majorly ... I too remember your username from the past. This month I almost stopped editing (after more than 5 years) and I have noticed that I don't miss this place with all that hypertrophied hysteria and inadequate importance thrown into unimportant conflicts and into unreal online universe .. I still like the place as it learned me a lot, but I'm more and more convinced that spending evenings in the garden and talking with my beloved is somewhat more and more ... satisfying. I wish you all the best. --Vejvančický (talk / contribs) 15:28, 31 May 2013 (UTC)
