Regrettably

#1 by Andrew Woodcock ( deleted ) , Wed Dec 07, 2016 5:40 pm

It is with deep regret that I have to announce we have lost a valuable, regular contributing member earlier today here.
I was approached to delete the persons membership on the request of the person himself.

I would like to publicly thank the person for their valuable contributions while with us all here and hopefully, some time in the future, we look forward to welcoming you back here .

We wish him well for the future.

I will just add that there are no hard feelings involved with any other member, just personal reasons. He has become a very close friend of mine and I will miss him a lot around here here for sure.

Yes Tom, of course, I see no reason why our members should be kept in the dark if a fellow member has decided to leave. After all, this is probably someone who most of us have befriended in his time here with us all.

It was Timothy Duncan, Tom, very very sadly.

We too, equally all wish him well for himself and his family etc, whatever his circumstances may be. Thanks Tom for those kind sentiments.

It's true to say Dave, that this particular forum does have a good community spirit feeling to it compared to some others.
But as numbers are low already, it does need regular input from the entire "community" we have here to keep it vibrant.

Some smaller forums like this one, see hardly any new threads from one week to another. It would be a real shame if we were to ever see this one following that same path.

I also sincerely hope to see Tim back here with us all again, sometime in the future.
Tim contributed regularly to this forum and members who do, are highly valued by us all.

The frustrating thing is it's the same people all the time that keep things ticking over. I hope the new year brings more members to contribute a little, I know work and home life can be time consuming but I just hope people can have a little time, even if it's once a week just to share their views on this fantastic hobby of ours.

Thank you Gwyn. :-) Embarrassingly enough, it is the same person. But how else was I going to finally get myself called 'Tim' instead of 'Timothy'? In all seriousness, I realized that my departure was a mistake, as I really NEED my friends here at the forum during these difficult times. :-)

And that is exactly what you have Tim, in abundance....FRIENDS!

Say the word PM or otherwise...they're all here for you matey.

I was the same myself earlier this year. It's very very close knit here, and we share much of our thoughts...with the ones who speak regularly.

Without this place, I'd have never met up with Del, spoke with Bill many times at length over the telephone, spoke with Barry and many many others overall.

This forum is superb for our like minded collectors, past and present, to share our walk through life with, I find.

In that, I include Hugh and others of course , great great conversations over the years guys!!

I miss Hughs posts too, except for the chaos creating one. Sadly he seem to think I was all to blame for this, I still feel David was misusing his admin rights and I did the right thing. Some may disagree, but I really felt deleting uploaded pictures was wrong

Happy that Tim is back and remember you can always ask for help, I am sure most would do their best to give you a hand, encouragement or whatever

Ones (plural) lol.

Hugh was (is) Ace!!

His knowledge on Super 8mm and other gauges most of the time, was second to none!

Still, that was then, and this is now. It is for others to step up to the plate now Hugh has thrown the towel in here!!!!

It has been like a Morgue once again here for the most part today. We need more ACTIVE members full stop.

If not, forums by 2017, are almost like Derann after 2010, all but extinct sadly.
