Chron, I had heard that you closed ERF, but I did not realize that you also retired your detective. I was very sad to see that.

You have put alot of time and energy into this game, and to give it all up because of the opinion of a loud minority is wrong.

I do not think you did anything unethical. Each day, we are given 12 cases - if they are not used, they are lost. No one wanted to implement a system of roll over - I have suggested it many times.

As a paying player, I have a right to decide what happens to my cases. I prefer to have them used by someone who is going to work on them and solve them. Am I to assume that most people would prefer to have the cases lost, then to be used by someone else? If so, what a selfish attitude!

I think the only people who can decide whether or not something is unethical, are the people who are giving up their cases. If they do not have a problem with it, why should anyone else interfer.

As for the high score list - So what if someone is number 1 and I am number 500,000 - does that take away from my enjoyment of the game? What does the #1 Detective get that I don't get? More cases? A larger office?? More money??

Again, I am sorry that you have left Sleuth. I will miss you.

I too, will miss you!!! You have been a great mentor to me. You took me in and taught me so much about the game. It's just not the same without you and ERF Team. I no longer have the desire to play anymore :-( I will be joining you in retirement soon. You will always be the " #1 Detective" to me. Thank you Chro and the ERF Team for making what time I had
here enjoyable!

Chron,
Glad to see you still around.
Actually, there are alot of people supporting you.

The whiners are only a small minority - loud, but small.

I'll miss you Chron. Sorry to see you actually retired. I was hoping you might change your mind !! You were a vital part of this community, the #1 detective and always had great ideas on how to play and improve this game. I can't say it enough.... you will be missed.

It would be nice to see all the people who avoid coming here because of that loud but small minority SAL mentioned start participating in the message boards. It wont take long to put the whiners where they belong and make this a place that everyone can participate.

Firstly let me say I am sorry to see ERF go. I don't think that was necessary, despite what's been said in various forums.

This thread is a GREAT way to show appreciation for Chron and that's only fair and reasonable coz he's helped a lot of people with the game, and those people and others should be able to mark their respect, but it is NOT a place to bait other players.

TWO vocal minorites banging on about each other is just getting boring.

Thanks.

Well, Squirrel, I guess Chron had his reasons why he decided to quit and I think we should respect that. The very same reasons why he quitted are inherent to the dynamics of a multi-player game.

It's good to hear opinions on both sides and see what can be done to clean up the bad air. But before this can happen some frustrations on both sides needed to be vented. Personally I prefer these debates to be open and public rather than through private messages or exclusive chatrooms. Good ideas do get born out of strive so I hope all this turmoil might cause something good to emerge out of it.

I agree that ideas should be discussed and not people in particular. But if some of us feel the need to express their sympathy for Chron it can happen that certain things come out of the gut. Same thing happens in real life after a funeral...

Anyway Chron, nice to see you're still staying in touch even though it's on a less frequent scale. I'm also glad to tell you that Emerald found a place in our agency.

I cried a small tear when I saw two top 10 detectives retired recently. I will miss you both.

I figure after having a PM convo with Badass I should just say that I wasn't trying to stifle debate, not that he was inferring that either, all I was thinking was that this was a great place to honour Chron, to thank him, to encourage his return, to remind the ex-members of ERF they are still loved by the community.

There 'are' other threadS about the topicS at hand, why not have at least one that's positive and points 'forward' instead of looking back.

Perhaps (I too Badass) am too soft. :)
