John - it's not helpful.

Rightly or wrongly a fair few people feel pretty raw about how things went for them on J+.  And I don't think that's limited to snowflakes who couldn't live with Hammer being 'upfront'. Other guys loved J+ but now its gone - and we have people posting here who wouldn't otherwise give UKVAC the time of day.

So we need to get along. And that is going to need some respect on both sides - those who thought that J+ was a dreadful place respecting that some of you guys had very different experiences; and some of you guys respecting that there are some people who still feel pretty raw about their J+ experience.

UKVAC'll end up being pretty sh*t otherwise.
It's only original once.

Someone suggested I have a quick peek at this thread.

I have three comments only, and then I shall disappear back into the mists from whence I came:

1. Julian and his boyo were proper, straight-up, no-sh*t arseholes. That is a fact beyond any reasonable doubt for anyone who was there and involved. No doubt, at all. 

2. If you doubt, you probably weren't involved. No worries. Tragedy + time = comedy.

3. This hobby has always been about the machines, the games, the artwork, the history, and the delicious discoveries. So onwards and upwards and back to what matters!

Bye chaps x

Tim! where did you go, come back, are you still in the hobby these days?

Re: J+ - All the speculation is getting a bit boring now, I am sure Julian's original date of when he was going to pull the plug was around now, so if domains have vanished that was probably something to do with the deadlines he was up against.  Anyhooo, its gone and looks like its now had its cremation and service and put in an unmarked grave.  Fond memories, but time to move on and leave it as that.

i just think it would be cool if we could all just do " what we do " no drama, no sh*t, not even playing and enjoying " what we do " 1 thing is for sure ??? i have seen some people post that i haven't saw in a long time Cool it's a raw thing for some and a party for others. i learned so much across the road ??? it was my first online adventure Ouch i made some f**k ups but with the help from members i learned how to interact online. i learned so much that most of you people would not understand Cry so can we all just accept that for some this is a time of mourning not partying Heart

Maybe I've overlooked a massive flame war somewhere, but it's rather nice in here - this thread is the only bit of drama I've seen in a while.

I was on both forums but this forum is definitely more relaxed and we are freely able to go off topic at times without the fear of admin interference and deletion of posts. Clean up time and thin ice...

Other way round mush. if it wasn't for you I'd never have been banished to the VAC; J+ would still be going strong; and I'd still be best mates with Aaron. You massive ruiner.

Tim, for what little it’s worth - you are very much missed and I attribute your absence directly to your treatment on J+. My only regret is that I didn’t speak up in plain terms directly at the time. Hope you’re ok and enjoying life out with forum shenanigans.

Hi dude,

You should never feel bad about what went on. You (and Mel) are one/two of the nicest people I was ever privileged to meet, and I met you both through this hobby. I met so many smashing people, and I include you AnDyC - even though you speak weird ;) -  that the bits I gave back seem like shortchanging you all. 

Sadly 'cos of life I went from coding debug ROMs to making actual games and writing shader code but I still stroke my Star Wars cockpit and enjoy the smell and think about you all. 

I collected a bunch of machines, but more importantly I met some ace people. There were a pair of c**ts spoiling J+, but the people were great.

Personally never had any beef with Aran or Julian, seemed alright guys when I met them at Play expo one year. Not denying they were arseholes, it's just how I found them. :)
I will miss J+, but maybe that will encourage me to post here more often.

Also, I should probably take this off the motor:


Of all the things I've lost, I miss my sanity the most.
