He has a good knowledge of vBulletin and it's waste really to see him make this low key decision here now.
    If you took the time to read his opening post you will find that it is because of a myriad of reasons mainly to do with the negativity. Floris isn't at all negative but knows when to step in and pull somebody he doesn't like into line. He was helpful to those who wanted the help.
    He can post here whenever he wants to. It's just that he chooses not to at this time due to the abuse. He's a pretty shy sort of bloke and I don't think it would be something for him to read up all the comments that are negative. Negative posts are off putting.

    However good the new team are, it just isn't the same.
    I always told customers to not be shy and just ask. There are no stupid questions. And I am glad I could help you get started with your community. Thanks for the kind words.

    Thank you for the nice words. I was hoping the first thing on your mind was the software, but ok I can live with that

    I want to thank you Floris for all the help that you directly (or indirectly) have given me!





    (I'm really starting to feel somehow kind of lost in this vb universe... )
    You don't have to be a big poster to be a respected member Enjoy your community and I was happy to help. Thanks.

    With more information finally set in stone and bits of info being shared in blogs and announcements, it feels that the 'ranting' has gone down a bit. Let's hope if those users return they at least learned to be constructive in their criticism. Anyway, that's too off topic. Sorry to hear you don't feel like being active that much either anymore.

    Yep thanks, I like to keep this thread on topic.



    ANYWAY: Thank you all again, I let this go for a while to allow people to reply, but I felt I had to come back and let you know I have read all the comments, including your twitter msgs, privmsgs, emails, comments on my blog and what not. Appreciated.

    See you all in a while again.

    Does that mean you'd be at vB Fans or whatever more or less?
    All the vBulletin-*.com communties under the vbfans network will be merged into 1 domain such as vbfans.com, which will be merged into the wetalk network. How much we're going to continue depends on the activity on the forum, not on my dedication to keep it running (won't be less). Hope to see you there too!

    You've been an impressive contributor to vBulletin and this community for so long, it is sad to see you go. Though I can understand your discernment regarding the overall feel of this place -- especially lately with the overwhelming negativity that Razasharp noted above.

    Although you are withdrawing from this place, I have no doubt you will continue to commit your talents and ideas to other venues and I wish you great luck.

    You have been, and continue to be, a great friend and colleague. I'll see you around on IRC and skype!

    Lol yeah - I give him a month/after vb4 is out :lol:

    I haven't posted much lately either, a lot to do with being busy, but also because there's so much bickering in the feedback section, I'd like to respond every time I see a silly point being posted but then I'd be here all day - and I just don't have that kind of time. The negativity seems to have gone into overdrive (although it's calming down again now).

    Floris - don't be stranger!
