I have loads of Emails to go through, and weed through them by the subject lines used. This one really caught my ear.

I tend to think of Thomas Ward as, for the most part, a fair and open minded member of this list, both as a participant and as a moderator. He shows a temper once in a while, as I'm sure that anyone would if you are in his situation.


People just refuse to wait for games to properly be developed because, mainly, I don't think they know what is involved in producing good games, and partly because they have no idea of what else goes on in a game designer's personal and or professional life. As a result, they do nothing but complain, moan, groan, gripe, pester, nag, whine, and worst of all, demand unreasonably. This puts so much unnecessary pressure on the developer that he or she snaps, says, "The heck with you people, I'm outa here.", and they leave. As a result, we have now lost yet another qualified game producer and, in this case, a good, honest, and dedicated member of the list. Although James North did have some bad practices, we lost him due to these very same reasons. So, when will you ever learn, people? Haven't you done enough damage to the blind gaming community by continuing your childishness and impatience and selfishness? I hope Thomas Ward returns, but if he doesn't, thanks! loads! whiners! You only have yourselves to blame. Unfortunately, the rest of us must also suffer the consequences of your actions. I hope you're satisfied, but I, for one, am not! Now, while this may sound selfish on my part, I paid for games that I may not ever get, and I only have you childish whiners to thank for it. For another, you're total lack of humanity toward people who have given time and effort to this list has caused all that time and effort to have been, basically, a waste of all of our tim, not to mention needlessly hurting decent list contributors. Although I seriously doubt it, I do hope you learn something from this, and I only hope that it isn't too late. Now, dang it, grow! up!

Subject: [Audyssey] I'm Leaving the List


Hi everyone,

I just wanted to say effective immediately I am leaving the Audyssy
list, am resigning as comoderator for reasons of my last post, and
will likely be closing USA Games for a few months. I've reached a
point where I can not exist on this list or any other list with
certain members of this community, and I've been pushed personally
beyond my ability to put up with the crap. I tried doing my best to
give helpful information, to take extra time and energy to design the
games the best I can, and apparently my best isn't good enough for a
lot of people so its time to put away my keyboard and leave this
community.

Its time to say some of the things I have not said before, but they
need said. I have worked as often as I can, as much as I can on MOTA
and Raceway, but it is a long and tedious process for me. I don't
always have time to work on them, and you have no idea how many family
reunions, cookouts, etc this summer I've skipped to work on those
games. For quite some time now I've spent so much time working on the
games my marriage has been strained and stressed adding even more
stress to trying to complete these games. Having the community e-mail
me off list now and then asking me when will game x be done over and
over again is bad enough.

However, Che's e-mail was the braking point for me. I've always tried
my best to give helpful suggestions, opinions of what programming
languages and tools to use based on nearly 12 years experience in the
business. Having been college educated in VB, C++, Java, etc I have at
the very least an educated opinion for why I say what I say and do
what I do. I've tried my best not to insult other developers, be fair
when giving my opinions, but apparently Che and others decided to take
it personally, in return insulted me, and that I can not and will not
put up with. So I'm leaving. Either Che goes or I go, but we can not
coexist on this list without killing each other first. So I'm leaving.

So long and fair well.
