This is going to be my last post on this forum and this entire network. Originally I was not even going to post this any more, however as we never got the chance so far I would like to post a proper goodbye to all our supporters and the community.
First of all as that apparently is not yet clear to the current administration together with me Com-man (commannen) and Bennie (benniestartrek) are officially re-signing. An acknowledgement will be sent to you tomorrow by eMail.
As this is going to be my last post on this network for good I have quite a few things I would like to say. First of all I would like to thank the generally great Elite Force community for all your support over the last months, without you we would have never come that far. :)
In connection to that I have a few very special community members who I consider some pretty good friends by today:
Scottyjam who, although he can sometimes be a bit nervy, has been a really great and awesome support for the entire staff.
Will Riker who I really didn't make it easy for to get along with me, thanks for taking it non the less. :)
The Daedalus who as one of my greatest friends and site members has always been there and supported us whenever we got stuck.
Skyrider who supported me back at a time when he knew almost nothing about me, I really don't want to have to miss you today any more. :)
Pro-Filer who has provided us all with this once so great place 6 years ago. We may not always have agreed about some certain things, however I still respect you for the work you have put into the network to make it to what it is today.
Hfx_Rebel for beeing a friend all the time no matter when I needed him.
Explorer who is one of the nicest and greatest modders I ever had the honor to meet.
I don't want to make this look negative and therefor I will just say that I wished I could at least have a little respect for those people who were responsible for our removal, in fact however I am just sad to see that my experiment regarding some people's power-addiction had to end this way. I'm not mad at you though, it is a nice place to manage when you actually take the time to get to know these people. The only thing I'm really sad about is that one of my best friends took part on this and betrayed me in such a manner.
As I already mentioned this post is not meant to sound or to be negative, and as I also hate it to finish such things negative I would like to take the opportunity to say thanks to the 2 special people who accompanied me over the last month:
Bennie who I don't know for long yet but he has always been a great friend and I don't want to miss him for anything in the world.
And of course my best friend Com-man who has helped me through so many things past and present that mentioning them would fill up a complete forum page. Thanks for beeing there man, you'll always be my little brother ;)
For those of you who care, we will continue our projects that we are no longer able to realise here on our new site we are making together with some additional community members. You can also find all our interviews which are gone from effiles and very soon our Elite Force mod database there, and last but not least we can assure you that the Insider is definately not dead.
Thanks again to the entire community, and keep in mind that although we will greatly miss you here we are still around.
(P.S. To the forum staff, I have taken care not to violate any of the board's rules and would like to ask you to keep the message here as it was a personal urge for me to say thanks to some people before my leave from here. Thank you very much in advance.)

You will be missed Pille. We may not have seen eye to eye in the beginning, but you are today one of my best friends. You might not be here anymore, but hey, there are other forums, lol.

Pille man don't go, i know your problems but just don't...
I didn't make it!
those people who were responsible for our removal
In regards that I started an experiment yes, though I was more referring to those who jumped to it and are actually in charge of the site. (see staff list)

Personally, I've never had a beef with you but apparently that wasnt your case..
I'd like to know why your derogitory attack on me was deleted the same day it was posted..
Was it because I have done nothing but put my heart and soul into the ef community not to mention hundreds of dollars towards various ef related things.
After your little drama, I'm glad your gone. The EF Community doesnt need yet another drama queen posting top news about your latest beef with someone.
I don't know what I ever did to you, But I will continue to pour my heart and soul into this community, if you ever get around to elaborating on what I did to you, I'll be happy to discuss it. OR you can just have this whole post deleted like usual. In which case you kill the community you claim to support.
I've been here long before you and I will remain long after..
I'm spending a year dead for tax reasons.

As much as some may like and others hate Pille, let's not turn this thread into an argument.

Shafe no matter what way you like to put it and to make yourself look like, calling us idiots is nothing I would ever tolerate anywhere, which is exactly what you have done and there is no denieing of it. Fact 1. Fact 2, I was and still am in this community since 6 years and 2 months, still wanna compete? Both nothing that will turn into an argument as they can easily be proven. In general I would like to say that I'm really disappointed by what you are making out of this thread. My original purpose was it to say thank you to some great people who have been around with me during my time here and who have been a much greater support than I would have ever dared to ask for. But instead of simply sticking with that for once really almost noone of you except Digz and Daedalus manage it to stay away from having your absolutely unnecessary goes at me. In respect to some people here who I still like and respect I will not dignify the other comment by Ace of Hearts with a response, however I have no intention to leave this community because of someone else's addiction to this site, and I can assure you that like you apparently manage it with beeing inmature towards a complete site and its members I will make my way together with my friends. So seriously, please stop wasting my and your time with these things Shafe as unlike you I have the facts to prove my point.

Please provide your facts.. And yes.. I call you an idiot publicly here one my site and I stand by those words which I wont repeat.. You want to compete on time.. whatever.. quite petty.. I stand behind what I think of you after your recent actions...
You still didnt answer why you deleted your top news item about me the same day it was posted.
Yeah.. I think your an idiot.. now.. whereas I didnt really before.. I most certaintly do now.. idiot..
You have managed to be most read since I relaunched my site recently.. feel on top of the world... as if you need an ego boost.. http://bg.tnlsoft.com/bg2/modules/smartsection/item.php?itemid=62
I never deleted it, Pro and I discussed it and we made a silent support cancellation out of it. So much about that. Beside that you are showing you are exactly what you claim that I am by simply ignoring the facts which were posted in the comments of the regarding interview. You call me an idiot for giving a new staff member the chance to get some feedback before the planned interview with Scooter, your thing. Thanks again for proving my point mate, and I'm sorry to inform you that my "god-complex" forbids me to bother with your level of "maturity" further. :)
