Perhaps we can start crowd funding for a new shift or cap locks key?

Yes?

We don't have discussion thread rules anymore because that turned toxic and well stuff changed. Tbh I just wouldn't bother in those threads, there's the occasion sociopolitical more specific less giant unending ideological war which is basically a waste of time that may be more interesting because it only lasts for a few days and doesn't make you want to claw your eyes out.

I'm afraid misogyny still exists in residual amounts and the usual bad taste which is usually good bad taste.

Just post no pressure. Things are pretty chill.

Basically don't run for GRcade Green Party

Edit: yeah and there's Kiran but he's alright just grumpy

I wanted to figure out a small change I could make to the forum itself to permanently weave our memory of Scotty into it, and I felt that adding this icon to the New Post screen would be a good way of doing that. When I talked to SillySprout about using the emoticon as permanent symbol of remembrance for Scotty, he touchingly suggested it be renamed "Captain Scotty" in his honour. Therefore, I've named the new emoticon :capnscotty:.

Here is the new :capnscotty: emoticon: :capnscotty:


I genuinely can't think of a more fitting tribute.

Thanks, Karl, for bringing this sad thread to my attention. I've just read through all 14 pages and it's heartwarming to see just how many people Scott touched during his years here, on other forums and in the world beyond the zeros and ones.

My own interactions with Scott were mostly confined to PG and this thread has brought back a lot of happy memories of that place that I didn't realise I still had. I often didn't see eye to eye with him, but he was undeniably a nice guy, passionate and with a zest for life. Having never met him, the fact that I remember his personality so many years later is testament to just that, a person that stands out from the crowd.

Like so many others, my internet presence has dwindled significantly since those carefree years when free time was in abundance. I came back here tonight because, aged 31, I remember what a fantastic community this place and its predecessors was for my younger self. A good chunk of my late teens was spent in the fine company of many of the people who've reassembled in this thread and I'm delighted to see this community still going as strong as ever. Even though I haven't logged in for a few years, I often find myself thinking of this place and it's clear I'm not alone.

Rest in peace, Scott. :capnscotty:

Thanks for sharing your thoughts Mystic, and hope you're well :)

I think I remember you were considered one of the most attractive forumites from the old GR photowall :wub: :slol:

Mystic is a very good looking chap. Especially next to Starbreaker.

I just found out about Scotty's passing tonight, after logging in for the first time in ages and reading through the "GRCade's greatest moments" thread.

strawberry float me, what a gut punch. I used to speak to Scotty loads on MSN (as well as the rest of the Poopgang guys) when I was an annoying kid basically looking for advice, friendship, and memes. (Though they weren't called memes back then!) Scotty was always willing to listen and give advice to someone he'd never met and was just a really good egg. I often think about this forum and the people I've met on here and Scotty is always one of the first to come to mind.

RIP Scotty.

I didn't know Scotty, but I remember how much of presence he had here, and reading through this thread just confirmed that.

Really sorry to hear this happened.

Hasn't anyone memorialised the account yet? They should so it doesn't get hacked or deleted.

I didn't realise that was a thing. I should probably either delete or do that to my parent's accounts :dread:

Just found out about this as I have been away from the forum for a bit myself. Again, never had huge interactions but he was a name that I very much recognised and a staple of old GR.

He was 1 year and 1 day older than me, which also makes it hit close to home.
