Man, sorry to hear that. They're not all positive posts for sure, though was trying to brighten up the mood there, you know! As for finding out about such things btw, this page might be a good reference: https://www.newgrounds.com/wiki/about-newgrounds/history/in-memoriam

Not sure everyone on the page is officially announced, but feels like I´ve seen most of them mentioned in a post somewhere. Their legacies live on, at least! In the spirit of the eternal (NG).

Well that post-post push for a more positive perspective cheer-up didn't go as planned. :( I'm sure a lot of them will come around again though!

Some of them still do on occasion, a lot of the others have moved on or are busy writing music full time and on tours.

I keep stumbling upon newsposts lately, by long lost NG'ers that haven't been on in ages, who just decided to check in and realized they might be staying a while again. It´s a hard place to forget about, this place. Always sad when good friends leave, but new people keep coming in too, such is the cycle...

Speaking of, I cried inside a bit a week or so ago, seems a user that I thought died all the way back in 2011 is still alive, seems they dropped into the Creator's Lounge chat one night, said hello and has no back on since then...

I should drop over there and check that. Who knows I might know a few more people, drop over, and pay my respects.

@NekoMika, same, actually. A while back, I saw that @Psybot was still alive. He was one of my favorite artists before I joined NG -- actually I think I may have joined NG just to leave him a review, now that I mention it. That was a treat.

In other news, I'll have 700 audio reviews in a few minutes. Just gotta pick a song and make it official, hahah. Before I do that, I'm gonna plug in the dryer for my grandma. Had to unplug it during a storm last night.

Always a treat to see those people still alive.

Could always review one of my audio pieces, get a free review response in return.~

Hmm, tough call between any one icon and the Demonish level 60 really... I've always liked the first two, but they don't really portray the same grit and power as any of the latter levels. The higher they get the tougher they get after all.

I know. I don't want to be changing it every week. Need to find one good one to keep up all the time.

Maybe start with the first one, and go through them all in order? ;) Could even calculate the EXP requirements for each according to your after-level-60 increases, so it'd be like an official second run through all the levels.

Really hope you won't be joining that page anytime soon! XD

That's cool. Makes me wonder what Gfox is doing nowadays, and everyone in the RG crew, should check up on some of the old veterans...

Nice. :) Bit surprised you say you thought they had died btw, did they do anything to make it seem that way, or just leave without a trace? Guess I'm still a bit naive, but unless there's some post about it I usually just assume people are elsewhere. Even when it does become official someone's passed it's hard to believe, feels like interacting online - without face to face contact, the presence you feel from someone never disappears the same way as it would in real life. So much harder to grasp people really die, online. Especially when their accounts live on, maybe... well, anyway, didn't mean to delve into the pondering of potentially depressing afterrealms here...

Yeah, you never know. Was pretty shocked back when Jude (CheeseCakeLOL) popped up on that page a couple years ago. Had just scouted her for the portal, which she was happy about, and seemed like she was just getting ready to go on a submission spree, so that was sudden...

Congrats in advance! :)

Yea, I don't think so. :P

The comments of this news post led me and I imagine others to think she was dead. When we still talked way back in 2008 - 2010, she said she pretty much stopped coming to Newgrounds after posting her movies because she found a lot of people on the forums at the time to be very rude and she did not like that very much.

That could work, but would require weekly updates. I would rather just pick one. Set it and forget it.

Congrats on upgrading your chainsaw to a spiked skull specter by the way.

Oh, yeah I can see how you could believe that there. :| Pretty thoughtless comments people be posting, spreading the rumor... considering her health issues and earlier content (suicide-themed) it´s all the more morbid.

I remember Dei-Sama from way back too, good ol' days of BBSing back in 2008... when considerable crudity was to be expected over here, though sad to hear that's why she left. The animated Dei-Sama debut was a big surprise back then, hope she makes a revitalizing return someday!
