I'm just going to stream my thoughts.
I haven't seen this editor in a while. It gives some very strong nostalgia to what RRU used to be. RRU used to be a wonderful place where we could enjoy both the community and the modding.
Now we're going to get personal. RRU used to feel like a home to me. I felt like I could escape the troubles of the world to come here, feel welcome and enjoy the community with all it brings. I never was a modder. Didn't plan on it, really; I wasn't much of a creator. I've always wanted to be a programmer but I have a few problems, including the world's smallest attention span and the problem of never finishing anything. That's aside from the point though. I was here because it felt like home. I felt like I belonged here. Back then, everyone would get along, with a bit of drama now and again. Now, don't get me wrong. There was some criticism, but it was constructive. Everyone worked for the greater good and it was a wonderful place to be, to laugh and to just generally have fun in the company of the community.
Look how much it has changed. Look at what is constantly going down, look at how you talk to each other and how you affect each other.
RRU has changed, for the worse. I don't know what happened, but now everyone's at each other's throats. I see people that I honestly looked up to fighting with each other and being opinionatively blind, fighting over who is right. It's almost as if you've all become extremely defensive like countries. You used to open your borders to each other and coexist, fighting for the greater good, no matter who was right. Now, you've all put stone walls around your borders, raging wars with whoever challenges you. I guess you could call me the neutral country. I don't want to be included in any of your quarrels. I want you to coexist at least so I can enjoy your company instead of being seated in a stadium and watching you brawl each other to the emotional death. You know what this does to me? While you guys fight for your opinions, it kills me emotionally to watch what I considered my home to fall apart. You can't even agree to disagree! You just have to beat up the other person so you can come out right.
This doesn't really feel like much of a home anymore. It just feels like a slaughterhouse.
I miss what RRU was. I miss my home. I don't feel like I really belong anywhere now. Judge me all you want on what I said, I don't care; you may find me weak (that's right, talking to you, Zephyria) or like a wimp for not being able to watch my friends hurt each other.
I guess it's time to say goodbye. It's really hard to change people, so I guess there's nothing I can really do but leave. Time to say my goodbyes.
Let's start with our admin:
I really regret not getting to know you better. You seem like a busy guy. Ever since I joined RRU, I looked up to you as one of my biggest idols. You are very mature and strive for the greater good in everyone, which is what I've always striven for. I wish you luck with your endeavors.
I need to start playing PS2 more. My computer doesn't love the game though, and my internet most days is nonexistent. I wish you luck with everything you're doing and know that I looked up to you a lot too.
Another person I really regret not knowing better. You seem to know a lot, and I could probably learn a lot from you. You've inspired me several times, and I bet you're a really cool guy.
I don't know you in RRU much, more from Skype and from RP. I'm sorry for not RPing as much and for not being the best player. I'll try to get on more often. You may not know this much, but you are the guy I look up to the most. You're strong, valiant, and you aren't afraid to dream. When I get older, I want to be a man like you. If you really want to, I bet you'll be able to get that worldsim done, and it will be legendary.
Again, I don't really know you from here. I know you from MC and Skype. Sorry I don't play enough. You're a really cool guy and your constructive criticism is always a really good motivator.
I knew you pretty well. Your game critiques have assisted in a few of my game purchases, and sometimes how powered you are helped me push through things. But I've got a bit of a bone to pick with you, but don't take this as insulting you or anything but as me trying to give advice. Sometimes, you might go a bit too far on critiques, especially on other members, and sometimes it might hurt them. Be kinda careful with the telling people off. Otherwise, you were a good member of the community.
You sir have inspired me countless times. You seem like a really cool guy and even though we don't really talk much I feel like we have a good bond. Also, thank you for that gift, again; you don't know how much that helped me. Ask Sadie after reading this on details about that, I think it might be a bit TOO personal for this.
Your critiques have also been really helpful in my game purchases. You're a really cool guy and I wish you luck with your future relationships, future jobs, etc. You were always the guy that was having the most fun.
I have too many members I regret not knowing well. We don't talk much, and I really regret that. You're a cool dude, and I wish you good luck in everything you do.
You are a really cool guy. You're very knowledgeable and would never fail to give me new insight on things. You are also an amazing builder. I wish you luck in life!
You are a very strong member of the community. You stand up for what you believe in, and you're a very cool guy. I wish we were better friends.
You're probably my twin, but older. (or maybe younger?) I wish we were better friends too, you seem like a really cool guy.

I cannot begin to compliment you on how amazingly talented you are. Good music, good games, and good graphic designing to name a few. You're really inspiring, and I hope one day I can reach at least half of what you can achieve.
Now, I've got one more goodbye. They probably don't really know I acknowledge them much.
I'm honestly sorry for not being a friend. I've always thought you were a really cool person, and I've always wanted to talk to you and get to know you better, but it never really happened. I wish you luck in everything you do.
Sorry if I didn't give you a goodbye paragraph, if you want one, you can add me on skype via my RRU contact info or email me at: icehusky1337 (at) yahoo . com
