heh...

Haven't seen him, but he didn't just post a .

He was writing journals on here, but putting a fake bracket beforehand to trick the system into thinking it was HTML code, so none of the text appeared.

jeff, there was a period of about a month there...

where everything was only a .

nothing else. Not sure if that was a code thing or not, but it was annoying as hell

heh...

As someone who can see the "code," I know there is text there. I had to tell him he couldn't use a bracket and start writing I... because he italicized the site in the process. And as swimmerguy says, it also had a "Read More," which was another tip off.

Oh God

I liked that guy, and I kinda miss him now.
Yeah, I know about his . journals, most of them, I know, had more in them, you could see on the Journals page there was a "read more" thing under them, but no more to read.
But some of the journals didn't have that, which makes me suspect that several at least of his . journals really were just periods, not even hiding anything from us.

I mean, I really liked him, but he royally pissed me off at the end with the stop stifling my creativity guyyyyyyyzzz on his period journals.
Like, fuck.

But no, he hasn't been on.

In a PM 12 February...

...he indicated that he would visit Oasis infrequently to read and salvage as much as possible from his many years of journals. His early journals were nothing short of impressive: True gems... and I dearly hope they're not lost (but as far back as 3 years ago he had already deleted some of his earliest posts).

I'm assuming that he has resumed his studies (following summer trip to Philippines and his parents' home - Taiwan) at The University of Auckland. But his short note lacked much specificity.

Angel Syndrome (highly regarded by Uncertain) is the only one I suspect might possibly have more info.

****

btw: In general, individuals do not care to be compared with someone else, and this is especially true for teens! But I'm willing to risk the possible repercussions:

Your insightful and quite creative writings are every bit the equal of his (in many respects, another step up!)... particularly impressive were Uncertain's journals that he wrote during all of his high school years in Auckland!

that's what I thought.

Max was one of the oldest kids I talked to on here, and although at times he could be a pompous ass, most of the time he was cool.

anyway...

elph, thanks for the update.

Much appreciated. Hopefully max doesn't delete all of his early stuff on here as well, as I often enjoyed the things he would post, specially poems and things of that nature. etc.
