We are not grieving, we are showing respect to a well known and respected forummember who decided to go elsewhere due to external factors. This forum will survive, maybe new talent will come. That doesn't mean that you have to forget what he did for this forum and for the people.

I am member of this forum for years and it was way friendlier then, then it is right now. People were really interested in learning new techniques etc. Now it seems a lot of new forummembers are looking for fast free edits and that's it. You hardly hear from them again and if you suggest a technique or manual or link, they get angry because they have to learn something.

This forum always has been a platform to learn techniques, provide links to useful techniques, manuals and step by step tutorials and often even free actions to make peoples' live easy.

Also to show your work for critique and learn form it.

Now it seems more a platform for free editing.

I remember a person who commented about Ray's smudges as being his own personal platform for showing off.

I find that quite insulting, since he spent litterally hours and hours into that painting and clearly stated that it was open for critique to improve. Such comments towards the regulars will only speed up a mass migration to other fora that are more specific for designers/editors and appreciate art, techniques and a helpful hand!
