My comment to Captain P's last journal entry, back in 2007.
I know this is ten years late, but I am sorry about your loss.

You may not remember me, but I sure remember you. You were one of my first mapping mentors, patiently going over my level designs and giving me constructive criticisms.

As one life ends, another begins. It was right around the time your mother died when my son was born. Now that he's almost 11 years old.

Anyways, I hope you can come back and visit us sometimes.

His name is Pieter Witvoet. He's still active on Stack Overflow if you want to reach out to him.

As for your shoutbox queries:

Spencer Rose (RabidMonkey) is still a professional level designer. Last I heard he's been working on mobile games for a London company since 2015. I don't know if that means he's physically moved to London or not! Might need to track him down for a pint if that's the case.

Kasperg is eluding me. He went dark after a TWHL drama many years back. I can't find him.

These forums definitely have the potential to become dramatic. Case in point--I left Snarkpit years ago and never went back due to a fallout with some members.

I created my own site GamingParents.org, but it didn't go very far. It takes talent, patience, and a bit of luck to sustain a site. It does take a village, literally.
