: Oh well everyone....I'm done

As the thread is stated I'm going to be leaving the cadillacforums. The place just doesn't interest me anymore and a lot of people are just frankly getting on my nerves so that makes it me not want to be here anymore. So it was fun while it lasted. And to all the people I have become friends with on here I wish you guys/girls the best of luck in whatever you chose to do in the future. So this is blackout signing off. :cycle:

Stick around Dude! We've all been criticized at one time or another and had difference of opinions. Sometimes you gotta ride the waves to have smooth sailing. :hmm: Or something like that. :halo: ;)

No need to leave, Blackout! You've provided plenty of information for many of us and more will be needing you in the future... But if you must leave us, GOOD LUCK in the future!

Well goodbye, I never really saw you post much... so i guess that would be the same as i never really knew you.. Um.
I think this forum kinda .. it doesnt have much interest, seems like the posts are repetitive. Im not sure what to say really. Personally, i think people are finding me annoying.. when im just trying to spice up some life in the forums.
Hate to see people go...

Aw man, don't throw in the towel just yet! This forum is one of the most stable, mature forums on the net thanks to insightful and polite members, moderators, and the most current software that runs like a top. CF is only 1.5 years old and has room for improvement. With increasing membership, you'll have more members looking for conflict, but you will also find a proportional number of stand-up guys and gals joining the forum. I also noticed that you are one of the forum's top posters, and your contributions help solidify the reputation that I've claimed for CFs. I hope you stay, bud.
I agree - forms are easy to vent and rant and rave and content is the written word very easy to misinterpret (no inflection or facial expressions on the keyboard even with emotioncons ). Sometimes there is no need for interpretation - it is pretty obvious :-) , but no real harm done ......
I find this form educational and entertaining. Good luck with whatever you decide.
I hate to see you go I've always liked your posts. None the less bye bye and hope you stay with Cadillac for a long time.

By leaving what are you doing... Proving a point?? No just doing it for no reason I guess...
As being one of the lead moderators and been here since day one (and you have been too), WE cant make this place good by ourselves..... We do our part by making sure everyone plays by the rules and stuff like that... We have to have a membership that is good.. goto the honda forums and youll stay here, believe me becuase I live on NICO as well, and theres tons of retards over there..
it may be boring here because theres not many retards (notice I said not many and not NONE) and it does get repetative... But by leaving and not responding to duplicate posts or being a search nazi you dont better your forum...
Stick around and try your best to make this place better... I can guarntee if HALF of our regular and semi regular members tried their hardest to make this place better this would be the best place on the net! I wish I could be here more, and a lot of our other moderators have not had as much time.....
This place has grown MUCH faster than ANYONE was expecting, and its sort of hit us like a sack of potatos... It will take time before we get EVERYONE to post who signs up and for things to really get good..... I dont deny that but we gotta have people around for that as well.....
So in closing, stick around and support your forum!!!

Yea I too hate to see any of the big posters leave the forums.......I agree that this forum has to be one of the best all around groups out there.....just go to the Impala forum site or any other big name site out there and see how bad it is....
The only thing ive noticed here that I dislike is the fact that people sign up...ask a question......and never return again.
I agree with what Wes said.

Do what you gotta do...
When I went from member to moderator it kind of took some of the fun out of it for me, but I really like doing the welcome thing! We all realize it is summer time and many people are busy with vacation and just enjoying the great outdoors. When the cold comes again this place will reactivate quickly!
Good luck we will miss your wisdom!
I'm not saying "goodbye" yet because I'm hoping he and Katshot will come back. :crying:

I agree with what paul said... Ive been sort of trying to get some stuff done behind the scenes but hardly anyone puts in the time cuz its SUMMER!!!! Come winter and you wont be able to anything outside it will fire up like it always does!

So this is blackout signing off.
Why don't we allocate a section for interesting websites that people find. They could be on any topic, except pornography, of course. I suggest we then exchange our views on sites. That would be fun and educational.
Another suggestion. Let's have more funny polls. Or just surveys, kind of like "Last book anyone read" type thing.
And in my humble opinion, this is indeed little bit more mature site then say www.hondaforums.com, though political thread gets out of control too often.
I think, thought, that Blackout will visit again sometime. We all like Cadillacs here and even when we get tired of it all, after several months of inaction we all post something. :)
