(Also I thought I'd take a look at Kong, but on Sep 2 of this year somebody took strop as a username already, and it sure as heck wasn't me. Argh!!!)

Corrections: I'm quite certain it was 2009. It was after she graduated and part way into WOM before I was a mod. They new each other since high school, like Carlie's profile states.

Strop, if my memory serves me well, I do believe you got all of those points right on. Or at least close enough to get the right impression across.

For all of you who have not check out the thread on Kong, I think I summed it up pretty well:

...Over here I see a lot of the same sort of posts, yet instead of wails of sorrow you get gigglesnorts of glee. It amuses me.

I really do wish John the best and hope things go well for him. I’m sure he’ll keep on creating awesome games and vomiting all the awesomeness on our interwebs so people can enjoy them. Which is the main point, right? Giving people games to enjoy. Done and done, regardless of perceived camp allegiances....

As mentioned, it is not like his games are going to be Kong exclusive or anything. Anyone notice how the a good portion of the top games on Kong are from us? We've got a lot of creative devs on our team, John was one of many. I fail to see why everyone has become doomsayers since learning about this.

John now works for Kongregate?

My soul has just died.

Though as long as he doesn't abandon AG and continues to add new games to here, I think I'll be satisfied.

So you have the means of making flash games?

No... I was just being stupid... I'm not very good at it.

I thought about it, and realised you are correct. My error was that the rural rotation I had was actually in 2009. I thought I had one in 2010 too, but that's merely my memory conflating things.

@Strop: tks for ur explaination, especially the video lah XD
@Devoidless: hmm imo, some reasons for this cry fest over John's leaving is:
1. He was the HEAD developer of AG, so when he left he ll give AG a big hole to fill, and yeh- I also wonder who ll be the next head developer to replace John lah?
2. His elephant games were truly EPIC, and it even bcame AG's mascot, so we also need to find a new mascot now, and some guys  alr volunteered to bcome new mascot such as pang or GOM  lah :-P
3. Well, like I said, it s a crying fest, so some of them may just cry bcoz of the chaining action lah XD

Ok people, you don't seem to understand. Kongregate is full of sarcastic jokers. Especially in the forums. Those 2 quotes you kept yelling at before? THEY WERE JOKING. I've been a member of Kong for almost 4 years now, and we just generally joke around a lot more. i don't understand why you all seem to hate us so much.
