I've got this little theory where all the best clickers have to leave the klik community, give up on it, think it's retarded, etc, at least once. It's kinda like how the best skateboarders take at least one serious fall. I dunno... maybe it's the apparent lameness of click products or maybe the harboured aggression.

Personally, I've left about 3 times, though I never really announced any cept the previous time. First time was shortly after the Click Cafe went down and there was nowhere to hang around cept #k&p and the BES forums. Second time was somewhat around the time I realised I couldn't make the game of my dreams with MMF's limited power. Third time when I had to focus my life on studying.

But eventually I came back, because I realised that although the Click Community is full of retards, they're still a hell lot smarter than most of the people I know in real life. I mean, if you even discuss politics or religion in real life, well, the opinions are extremely one-sided. At least in the community, you get a good debate.

Oh, and I still work a game about 4 hours a week lately.

I left once. I just disappeared for about 6 months.

Hey, you might be right though, now I'm actually good at making games.

12 times a day... wait, we ARE talking about mastur... nah too predictable right guys?

I've never really left. I've gotten bored with clicking a number of times, but I always bounce back. But I've never left the community.

I don't think I've ever left... because giving up TO is the last thing I'll ever do. In the more difficult coding sections of TO I've often thought of leaving after I finish TO, but really... the temptation of making cool games will keep be back

I never left because all your pathetic insults bounce off of me like... rubber... bouncing things...

"I mean, if you even discuss politics or religion in real life, well, the opinions are extremely one-sided. At least in the community, you get a good debate."
Unfortunately that's true - even in my grammar school X(

Well, that's because they were undeserving of the name 'insult'. And they bounced off of me like rubber bouncing things. I think the late Fire was the only one who did that, and maybe some guy from #K&P who floods 'STFU n00b' a lot

I left once in April 2003, and I intend to leave again by July 2004.

The fundamental difference being that in 2003, I had nothing to fill the gap with, and so much free time I just *had* to click because there was nothing better to do.

Now I have a lot more interesting things to do.

Rikus left and promised that he was "never coming back". A few people pointed out that he probably would be back one day but he said no way. A year and a half later, he is back.

I could leave now, if that would please you...

Seriously, how can you leave a community? It's a friggin' website for crying out loud. You can't just type in an address and as you type www.c... the Daily Click website pops up in history, you don't just say "Nope I promised I wouldn't go back there, they'll just tease me." Ah, you faggot! You can leave Weight Watchers, put a little message in the newsletter, but you can't leave a website.

The next person who makes a "I'm leaving, because I want attention and people to feel sorry" post, I'll kic... flame them.

I can´t leave single community even for a day :\....
The week at skiing vacation were like hell without the
internet communites..
I can´t even think how hard it will be to leave in Brazil for
5 weeks at the summer :\..

And officially leaving propably means the way that the guy hype alot
that he´s going off and never coming back...
That were a fashion at finnish community-site pelisivut.org few months ago..
Most of the leavers came back..
oh..wait..Everybody who hyped that they´re going to leave came back :\

I've left the community a large ammount of times but since that went unnoticed every time, I don't think I've technically left once.

fishead has never, ever been annoying. it's the debates his games generate (which he is wholly unresponsible for) that become annoying.

there's not much point in "i'm leaving!" posts. in some cases people post them in the hope that they will be begged to stay, and in other cases people want a way of preventing themselves from returning because they know they will in the end. people who don't care just leave without a sound.

A.C Software, when the old community site www.iklik-it.com went down we all got scattered, it was just like if this site was to go down, but we didnt even have other sites like Click Island. I had over 800 posts on that site.

'in some cases people post them in the hope that they will be begged to stay, and in other cases people want a way of preventing themselves from returning because they know they will in the end. people who don't care just leave without a sound.' -- Pete

There's another group of people; the ones who post a leaving message simply because it's common courtesy to say goodbye to friends when you want a change of scene, and because (as in my case) they know how horrid it is when someone they know leaves a community one day without so much as an email.

Just leaving quietly is more the pattern of people who don't have any friends to tell anyway, lol.

I guess since Tigerworks never left, that kinda screwed up my whole skateboard analogy. Maybe it's more like um... that suicidal/rebellious phase teenagers go through.

Strange that I've never noticed how some people leave out loud just for attention. And strangely enough, it sometimes works with some people. I mean guys like fire get little sympathy, but there are those who do... like Rikus and ShadowCaster.

Maybe I'll do a search for "leaving the community" after this, just for fun and laughs.
