Oooh snap! I come a bit late today and it's already 2 pages long!

Well, I am quite sad at this news, but the last thing you need in life is more unessesary stress. I think you are doing the right thing if you are stepping down because of personal issues in the real world. I will miss you and I thank you for all that you have done for this site and its members.

Farewell :| , and good luck ;)

Its sad to see you step down jay…but its your choice,it was great knowing you friend.

(Dang, it's hard to say goodbye…)

Jay, it's too bad to see you go, but life goes on. (For those who have one, excluding me.) I'd like to thank you for your continuous support, advice and sense of humour.
I hope everything will go well in the future and see you around some day. :wink2:

Once again: Arigato for everything.

Sincerely, MDT (or Mario)

Viper, you have been THE GREATEST teacher and mentor that I and all of the other members have ever had. This site won't be the same without your teachings, comments, advice, etc. If you're leaving because of the great amount of responsibility, just become a regular member of the site. We would hate to lose such a great guy. If you're leaving the site for good, at least leave you're e-mail address so that we can talk to you. When you leave the site, it'll be hard for people not to get upset. There's nobody better than you that can teach on how to make cars for NFS games, and even help people with real-life problems. I understand… It's your life. You do what you have to do. But whatever choice you make, you will never be forgotten. :thumbsup:

Hey, i just got banned for carrying out a litle test.

I made three vulgar posts and clocked the speed it took for each to be locked and removed. Even without u. we still had a faster speed than with u, so sit back and relax

This thread has to go straight to the archive, where it will always be remebered. The banner that says NFSCARS should have, "In Memory of Our Friend and Teacher, Viper" added to it. It's the LEAST we can do for the guy. We should draw him a Lambo.

@nextgendesign: …are you nextgentechnologies?
March 6, 2005, 4:43 p.m.
Im sure the site will still cary on pretty well, but just wont have all the luxuries we got acustomed too with you on the job. Im going to thank you now for those things that maby arent as obvious, thanks for: speedy uploads, your tutorials, all the kind messages that were PM'ed, the birthday messages, and for your conversions/base cars/model releases. If I missed anything Im sorry, and if anyone else wants to add something that is not always seen, thank him for that.

@nextgen desighn/concerned: the test was preformed while viper was still an admin, he may have been the one to remove the test posts. This will require the use of the report bad posts button from now on, more than ever.

you did a bloody great job vj5 so dont forget your a great guy dude and ur no were near a pain in the ass
March 6, 2005, 6:02 p.m.
well good bye viper, even though i dont "know you" like others your the only admin that ive seen that so active .
great example for every1 too

Just putting my 2 cents in: I know this is just restating what's already been said. It's too bad losing a respected member of the NFS community (true, you won't be gone gone but you have been a great admin – in addition to being pretty much the only one besides Sander whom I knew for sure was an admin). We never talked and I never knew you personally, but I feel like NFSCars is losing a big and important part of itself. It's like taking part of the computer out – the whole unit might still work but not as well. That last sentence sounds really stupid but I can't think of a better way to say it. I'll miss your humor – but not too much because you'll still be here, RIGHT???.

Good luck getting your life sorted out and I hope your civvies are still in style.
I respect your decision to step down because it's difficult to maintain something like this when life is hard on you. Thank you for making (and keeping) this site what it is today. Raul Julia once said in the 1976 movie, The Gumball Rally, (upon throwing the rearview mirror out of his Ferrari), "What is behind me is not important." This is my favorite quote from a movie, but it does not hold true here. What you have done here at NFSCars IS important. And we will remember your administratorship for a long time. Thanks again.

a fellow NFSCars member and former nOOb but still not a modeler,

Jay (what? Is it that creepy that we have the same name? ok, mine's a nickname, but still…)

We should draw him a Lambo.Diablo
can I draw it? jk but I'd be honored if admin said yes :afro:
March 6, 2005, 7:16 p.m.
What's with all the farewells? He said he's "stepping down" not leaving… He also said "this is not a goodbye topic". Unless I missed something I believe he'll still be around. :)

I'm glad I visited the site just now or I'd have seen this too late.

@VJ: It's been good having you as Admin man. If you are believer or not, my prayers are with you for your personal matters/troubles or whatever you're going through. :D God bless ya VJ5!

@ REBEL35SUSPECT - again, very nice words of encouragement and support and on top of that some nice compliments- I'm proud to have been so highly regarded by so many of you and thank you all for your continued support- unfortunately, most of the time I was so busy I could never offer the chats and assistance I had set my expectations for and still I was able to obtain all these very nice things said about me…I am truly humbled by yours and everyone else's words.

@ Murcielagos - unfortunately, the nature of my problems are life-changing and extremely severe…so much that it would interfere in my performance as a staff member and I could not be a honorable admin if I merely stuck around for the sake of simply maintaining the title.

@ CVPI19 - Louis, you already know my sentiments, buddy.

@ big_muppet996 - thank you very kindly…I wish the best to you as well.

@ LinkinBoy- Thanks, buddy- all things must come to an end at one point or another…it's best that I leave now than if I were to stay and do a less-than-good job.

@ DJC-Grafix - Thanks, Duncan…I recognize you as a gentleman and regret out past differences- unfortunately, I was rather short with you at times and now you offer your words to me proving that you are quite a sportsman who harbors no ill feelings…I am trully himbled by that and thank you.

@ nextgendesign - ummm…errr…ok, lol

@ HSVrules- very, very kind of you to say such a thing…much appreciated, my friend.
