Hi Folks,

This is a public apology for the (what was basically an) anti-Art suggestion as part of all the April Fool's fun.

Given the truth of what we've come to know about Art, this place would not be the same without him. He has become much more refined as of late and I could only hope to do likewise, given enough time myself.

He is frequently very welcoming and helpful to new members, giving good encouragement and very helpful suggestions, as well as fast-tracking promotions, when appropriate. Yet, he has a very sensitive BS meter and doesn't hesitate to post what's on his mind when it is firmly twitching in the red.

I have been here under four years and in that time I have seen this place grow over 10x (from under 2,500 to over 23,000 members). Given the ongoing huge influx of all kinds of new members, I perceive Moderator van D'Lay to be an invaluable asset and I would not change a thing.

Smile Thumbs up Love

If the April Fool's shenanigans taught me anything, it's that I like Art just the way he is.Love

I was afraid that fake Art was going to give me diabetes. Sick

Thanks, all. And thank you, Pandora.

I hope I didn't ruffle too many feathers in the days leading up to the big prankeroony. I was of course, in character. All was done in the name of fun and good old fashioned tomfoolery.

Rest assured that I have nothing but the highest esteem for UberModerator A1pha, despite his bottomless lust for power and dissociative induced psychosis.

I do get the message that not all appreciate my heavy handed approach - and while I can't really promise that I'm going to change my evil ways entirely, I'm not above taking something from this. Old dog, new tricks kinda thing.

You the man, Art! Every time I see that you were the last person to post in a thread, I instantly have to click to see what insightful, intelligent, sarcastic, word-art you've added to a conversation.

"LOL" is thrown around pretty frequently, but you sir, make the term a reality. Off the top of my head I can think of at least a handful of your posts that nearly gave me abdominal cramps from laughter. The following two are pure gold:;m=286919#post286919

This place would definitely drop down a few notches if you had actually transformed into that April 1st character. Thanks for being who you are and being a key component of why this place is the most special community on the net.

“The most compelling insight of that day was that this awesome recall had been brought about by a fraction of a gram of a white solid, but that in no way whatsoever could it be argued that these memories had been contained within the white solid. Everything I had recognized came from the depths of my memory and my psyche. I understood that our entire universe is contained in the mind and the spirit. We may choose not to find access to it, we may even deny its existence, but it is indeed there inside us, and there are chemicals that can catalyze its availability.”

Good work Trav. This place would not be the same without Art.



Edit: While I'm here I'll drop a couple my favourite Art moments, one for comedy and another for a point extremely well made, there's plenty more than these examples though.

While it's certainly dramatic and whiny enough to at least make a run for the gold, you've got to deduct a full point at minimum for spelling and incomprehensibility.

What an unnecessarily rude and cold hearted comment.

It's tough enough to put oneself out there and commit to creative endeavors without the shitty scrutiny and belligerent comments of anonymous internet naysayers. How about in future you keep these kinds of comments to yourself? It's easy enough to just not interject when someone else's artistic attempts aren't up to your exacting standards.
