View Full Version : *sniffle*...
This is the most difficult thing I've ever said....but when I find myself crying over things I am helpless to do anything about...then it's time for me to say goodbye. You guys here are absolutely the best! I love you all, and I will always cherish every second I've spent in the forums with all of you. I'll miss all of you terribly...you all mean so much more to me than you'll ever know.
Mike...*hug*..Thank you..you have shared so much with me...from email addresses, wallpapers, and music... to taking the extra time to try and 'Jaynproof' things so I can understand them, and telling the guys on the Skin-Dev-List to 'fucking behave' so I didn't hafta get nasty with them while you were gone :D. I deeply appreciate everything you've done for me.
Xerxes...*hug*..one last toast with the bublish *clink*. Every time I anti-alias...I will always think of you :D, my dear friend.
BG...*hug*..I'll miss that knack you seem to have, of coming along at just the right time to cheer people up :D You're a very caring and honest person, and I hope you never change that.
Amp...*hug*..I'll miss you so very much...we've been here a long time together...you'll always be more than just a friend to me.
Chad...*hug*..I'll miss you and your 'nanners'...and the cute way you say the most 'off-the-wall' things at the perfect time to crack us all up.
Duk...*hug*..There will be a void in my little life that used to be filled with little ::snicker snicker::'s, <Peeking Duk>'s, and 'ok..she's gone now's. I'll truly miss your wit, and your thoughtful and sincere ideas and deeds.
Cappy...*hug*..I'll miss your bug reports....but more than that I'll miss all the bits of wisdom and advice you have given to me.
Dawg4Life...*hug*..I guess I've never actually told you what a huge help you have been...especially in Tech Support Skins, PlugIns...you're always there with an answer to help out. Thank you.
Rikki...*hug*..Thank you, for all the help you've given me with skins and skin questions...I've learned so much from you.
Zeruel...*hug*..Thank you, for all the patience you had with me on my Anime skin (I might surprise you and actually finish it and send it to you for your thoughts ;) )..and for keeping things 'lively' in the forums.
Pixelpusher...*hug*..Thank you, for being a dear friend, as well as a comforting shoulder to cry on. I hope you've got those 24 karat gold 'I'm Da Man' cufflinks locked away safely.
Lynx...*hug*..We've both come along way since our Creed skins...you've been a great friend...thank you.
Matt...*hug*..Thank you, for politely keeping on top of me to get things done (you know what a terrible procrastinator I am ;) )...thank you.
MJ...*hug*..Thank you, for your humor, your sharing...and for your wire frame (someday I'll actually sit down and figure out how to use it ;) ).
To everyone...*group hug*..individually..you're all the most wonderful people I've ever met....put you all together in one forum...and it's so easy to see why Skin Love is the best forum on the entire internet.
To all the other mods (if any happen to stroll by and see this)...*hug*..I'm very lucky to have gotten the opportunity to have worked alongside of you all. You're all the most amazing people...with such dedication to the forums, and to helping people. I'm very proud that I got to be a part of the 'Mod Squad' here. Thanks guys...you're all the best!
Chev...*hug*..there will always be a warm spot in my heart for you sweetie ;)
I'll leave our fine MikroAMP skins on my little page until I can get them all moved over to the WSD site (http://wsdskins.cjb.net). After that, if you will, just submit them there from now on (unless Mike wants to host them on his site).
3rd June 2001, 08:57
wha! Jayn...I know I don't know you well but, why are you leaving. I have found a great deal of wonderful things that you have said. Surely, you have the ability to stay don't you? I would love to see you here tomorrow and the day after. Is there someone that has upset you...I can take care of them if you wish? Is there something that can prevent your 'leaving'?
I am so sorry, I did not get to know you better Jayn...but, if there were any one thing I could say to keep you here I would. Just ask me to say or do it? Please, grant us your stay...Winamp.World will be to hard to deal with otherwise.

3rd June 2001, 12:20
Jayn, I'm so sorry to hear that you're leaving this forum. I just wanna say thanks for everything. I remember when I first joined (under a different alias) and I was a newbie asking questions. You (and all the other regulars, but especially you) were always there to help and to offer comments.
We will all miss you :(
3rd June 2001, 13:11
I am very sorry to see you go Jayn :( . You've been very helpful to us "newbies" and were kind enough to boost one of my skins when it was attacked by a neanderthal. :) You were also very good at keeping the "naughty boys" on best behavior, ;).
You will be sorely missed :(
3rd June 2001, 14:02
Goodbye Jayn :(

:eek: :( :(
I'm a bit overwhelmed by this, not sure what to say.
I think I just want to say that I'll miss you very much but if you think this is something you have to do then I fully support you. Though your leaving makes me very sad :( I'd like to say good luck and fare well.
3rd June 2001, 15:42
as ampburner said, i am also very overwhelmed by this, i ever would expect you to leave us... but if it's for something more important i feel no reason for stopping you... please, stop by every now and then. if i started a thread about who everyone in here likes best, every single person who say your name, without any doubt. you'll be missed so very much in here :( . Goodbye

This is a sad day for skin love indeed.:( The absense of
your kind and gentle spirit will be void thats hard to fill.
I consider it an honor to be called friend by you.:)
You will be sorely missed :( Goodbye Jayn. It has been a
pleasure sharing the same forum with you.
All Hail The Queen Of Skin Love

I third that...it was certainly out of the blue as I only found out from Chev in another thread that you were leaving. There's not much I can add to whats already said - I'll personally miss you, and your posts here, not to mention your sense of humour :)
Please drop by now and again - I know we'd all love to hear from you :)

3rd June 2001, 22:20
please don't do this to me.
You made me what I am today on the forums
You where one of the reasons why I got back after 8 months.
You where the one who when I was dragged through my shit, helped me out of it again.
You are one of the few people that can not be missed
3rd June 2001, 22:36
thanks for all youve done. thanks for being the one person who stuck up for me when i acted like an ass. i'm gonna miss ya.

4th June 2001, 02:19
Shit. Why are we losing so many good mods lately? I hope my tirade about skin rips (and it was about rips and NOT post counts) a couple of weeks ago, wasn't a factor in your decision. That would just kill me. :(
4th June 2001, 03:46
I know that you and I hardly ever crossed forums and talked much, Jayn... but I'm still going to miss you terribly. I wish there was something that I could say or do, but you have to do what you feel needs to be done.
/me struggles to hold back tears, but can't... :(
4th June 2001, 09:02
Well now at least flatmatt's sig makes some sense.
But I'm confused as to why Jayn is leaving.
I guess that means I'll have to stay more active so you'd better fucking behave cos I'm not nice. Even tho I am a reverand.
Oh what?! :eek:
Oh no you are most certainly *not*, young lady! You get back here right now! You ARE skin love! They may as well delete the damn forum if you poof on us. I mean it Jayn! You get back in here right now. I know you are reading this thread ... no one could hang 'round this long and not.
We can work this out. If there is a problem in here that is bringing you to tears, you need only voice it. We're nothing if not helpful to a friend in a time of need. Listen, if you need a break, take one, but don't leave like this. If it goes deeper, you *need* to tell us what is going on. We are your friends and deserve to know.
No, I will not accept this. Not today, not tomorrow, not ever until we have the chance to talk it out. We're family here. You gotta give us the chance. Ya just plain gotta. :(
You + Here = NOW!!!
You - Here = No More Forum ...
That math even winamp can understand.
Jayn, T-A-L-K ... T-H-I-S ... O-U-T ... P-L-E-A-S-E ...
4th June 2001, 09:16
Can we like keep this thread open by removing post-dated material so that it feels like jayn is always with us?
That way we can come here and post...and say what we will.
4th June 2001, 09:38
Even though I am a newbie here, after reading all the threads, I am sorry to say I never got a chance to get to know you. You are the heart of this forum, and I am not going to deny that. When I joined the forum last month, part of the reason was to make new friends with all the people here, 'cause this, to me anyways, is the best one there is. The part dealing with the skins was just a bonus. I just wish I got a chance to get to know you.
Anywayz, good luck, hope things get better (they eventually will), and I'm wishing you'll return soon.
4th June 2001, 10:44
Well I don't know what to say acctualy. I'm quite confused. :confused:
We're all going to miss you very much Jayn! Please do not leave us! :(
4th June 2001, 10:53
Awww, maaaaaann, NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOo, miss you, I WILL miss you, what will we doo without yoooooouuuuuuuu, ohhhhh,waaaaaaaaahhhhhhh. :(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(
4th June 2001, 15:12
need to know some stuff for my jayn skin
:whats her fave colour?
:does some one have a photo of her they can send me?(email@example.com)
:a link to her best(good) skin?
. - .... .- -. ....
4th June 2001, 15:18
Jayn, take a look at this thread - and every other one that you leaving has been mentioned in. Every single reaction has been "tell me you're kidding", or, "we're gonna miss you". And you were voted mod of the month, for good reason. Everybody here loves having you here, and we're going to be the worse off after you leave. There are too many people here that you've helped and chatted to not to be missed. So take a break if you need to, but reconsider leaving for good...please... :)
4th June 2001, 15:28
And are you leaving skinning entirely? Or can we hope for future sleek skins of metal and pink?
Take care, sweet Moderator Ma'am, take care.
4th June 2001, 18:50
someone who knows Jayn's email, please send her a copy of all the posts... i know if i was her they would at least cheer me up some, and if we cant get her back we mine as well make her happy
4th June 2001, 18:57
4th June 2001, 19:04
but when I find myself crying over things I am helpless to do anything about...then it's time for me to say goodbye.
if you don't mind telling us what the this thing is your crying about!!! couse you have to be still reading this unless you lost your net or something like that but if you are reading this tell us why your leaving don't just let us hang in dispear come on just one more last post
4th June 2001, 20:46
for you jayn
4th June 2001, 23:08
It's a surprise to say the least that you're going,but I wish you all the best for the future Jayn and thank you for all your help.
5th June 2001, 08:50
This is my first post in the skin love forum ever. I want to say this, It is a very sad thing when a regular everyday member like her who is friends with everyone here leaves the forums for good. She isn't the first and will definitely not be the last. There will be a day when all of us decide to move on for good. It may be tomorrow, it may be a few years from now.
Peace out Jayn, let the force be with you. :)
5th June 2001, 11:52
I am sorry not to have known you outside the scarse posts I read...
But from them and the reactions of other members I have gathered you are a special person..
5th June 2001, 18:46
Jayn wishes to say:
Please tell everyone Hi! for me....and that I miss everyone so much I can hardly stand it.
5th June 2001, 20:43
Does anybody know why Jayn has left? Jones? Flattmatt? Anybody? Jayn if you're reading this please, some of us (especially Duk) would like a smallexplanation. Good luck and I hope that you're going onto bigger and better things :(
5th June 2001, 21:01
Please tell everyone Hi! for me....and that I miss everyone so much I can hardly stand it.
aah...how sweet..... :(
5th June 2001, 21:14
Jayn said that she would explain eventually... When she's "not so emotional about it"
Apparently it has to do with something in the forum or at Winamp.com itself.
5th June 2001, 21:21
Hmmm, that sounds serious. I did not expect it would be such a serious matter. I'm sorry to hear that.
Give here the best of luck from me.
5th June 2001, 21:25
I personally believe she got tired of talking to the wall that nullsoft is. I know I would have :(
All our troubles seemed so far away
Now it looks as though they're here to stay
Oh..we believe in yesterday
We're not half the place we used to be
There's a shadow hanging over me
Oh..we believe in yesterday
Why..she..had to go
We don't know
She wouldn't say
(she wouldn't stay)
We said something wrong?
Now we long for
Jayn, just give us the reason. That's all I ask. I can respect your decision, but I need to know if it's something we said or did that made you leave. This place is supposed to be a sanctuary. Things have changed, I suppose. But that doesn't mean it can't be remedied if we all work together. Come on, girl. Shake off the tears and give us a few words ... would ya please?
6th June 2001, 09:58
seems I can't have holidays one week without major troubles ... Jayn what happened ??? You can't leave us all alone, would you ? No Share Your Skin Love mom anymore ! Leaving all those orphans out in the dark, rainy, cold world - Jayn you're kidding, arn't you ?
7th June 2001, 20:00
:( Sorry to dig this up guys, but I see a lot of talk in here. What are you guys doing at home though? If you guys want 'er back IMHO, the least you could do is drop the lovely lady a line. (I mean e-mail, I just couldn't stand to ruin the rhyth. :eek: :D heh, I'll stop 'afore I do it again...) Anyway, don't ask me for the addy, it's not that hard to find, and she is checking it, so if you wanna talk to her, it's worth the hunt.
7th June 2001, 22:50
[i] What are you guys doing at home though? If you guys want 'er back IMHO, the least you could do is drop the lovely lady a line. [/B]
You're right and I would have done so if I would have been a well known member to her. However, she left for a good reason (whatever it was) and I felt that this maybe would have been taken as disturbance of her privacy. But I sure hope that you and all the gals'n'guys who made this forum so great can convince her to come back :-)
8th June 2001, 21:35
I don't do that, because I think that ain't appropriate.
She's known for the forums. And I don't want to harass her with things she might not want to see.
(And if everyone does it, her mail-box will be full in no-time)
9th June 2001, 15:00
yup. Same for me too. Like I said I respect her decision, and I don't think everbody sending her emails is good idea...so basically, I just hope to see her here again some time, and If she wants to talk she knows how to contact me.
. - .... .- -. ....
9th June 2001, 15:15
Ok guys - before you all start sending out wreaths and talking about Jayn as how she used to be, lets clear up a few facts first:
1. Jayn didn't leave the forums because whe got tired of the place, etc, or any other similar reason. Jayns absence is due to apparently irreconcilable differences, and the only way she could stick up for her principles was by tendering her resignation as moderator.
2. Jayn is alive and well, and truly misses you all - in her own words "I love all of you guys, you're all just like family!"
3. Jayn is very much still around, in a greater capacity (although less obvious) than before. She has been given full access to the Winamp Intranet and is at this moment working on the skin rips that have been left untouched for so long.

:) thats good to know
11th February 2002, 02:47
oh FUCKING HELL Nem, why did you have to dig this up? What she said in here is all the reason she ever gave in this forum. It's a dead topic, it's a touchy topic, and it does not need to be discussed. The people that needed to know why, know why, though many of them are gone now too. If you wanna know, email her, don't go looking for private answers in a public forum.
Don't take this as telling you what to do - it's not like I've got that right anyway, and you're gonna do what you want to anyway.
I'm just saying, this place is finally starting to return to the laid back atmosphere it used to have.
