All About elektrixxx
I knew I would grow tired of this place and decide to leave, or get banned without actively trying. I'm surprised I'm not banned already, but instead it has led to this. I don't want to continue doing this anymore.
I am leaving GameSpot permanently.
To put it simply, I'm sick of it. I'm sick of the site telling me that it's my fault there are HTML errors. I'm sick of pointless moderations. I'm sick of the same threads being reposted every month and I'm sick of the waves of old threads being bumped.
James Kozanecki sent me a private message at the start of this month. Part of it reads:kozanecki wrote:We noticed that you've been moderated a fair bit lately and under the Terms of Service you're rapidly approaching a ban. You're a great forum poster and it would be a shame to lose you, so try to keep it clean and above board.
Yeah well screw that. Lose me. I don't want to be a GameSpot forum poster anymore, and I won't let moderators have the satisfaction of moderating me anymore or banning me. I am clean. I am above board, but GameSpot's moderation system is flawed and doesn't allow for the least bit of fun, joke or innuendo. I will no longer subject myself to this virtual prison.
There isn't even a reason outside of the forum to visit this website and hasn't been for years. The news is always a day late, the reviews are late and the video content is bland.
This website is no longer relevant and has no reason to be visited.
So there's my reasoning. No real surprises there, but why exactly have I chosen to leave on the 22nd of September?
Before being a regular at GameSpot I used to post very frequently on a wrestling forum at wrestling.net.au. As seen by this screenshot taken before the forum was relaunched, I made nearly 6000 posts there! However after having enough of one moderator on the team who had hated me ever since I signed up I decided I would leave. I did so, on the 22/09/2007. The exact same date I registered there in 2003. Now I'm going to do it again. Same date, same signature, and just like last time I will never return. Even after writing this the similarities continued with one of my last threads on GameSpot being closed just like on the wrestling forum.
As for where I'm going next, I don't feel like writing anything on the internet for a while. I want to sit back, wind down, reflect, forget and refresh. I want to rid my mind of the evil of the past before moving on to something better.
But it wasn't all bad. The most important part of this website for me were the same people who read my posts and blog entries throughout the years. You. Your personalities, forum posts, blog posts, Community Games Nights and Pick-up threads kept me coming back all these years and I thank all those who gave me a laugh. You all know who you are!
And... I guess that is it.
It's time for me to stop. What you're reading now is the last thing I'll ever do on GameSpot before signing out for eternity. Time to walk away from almost 100 blog entries, over 1000 users tracking me, over 11000 profile views and over 12000 posts. It may be drastic, but this is something I feel I need to do and it's in my best interests that I say... Goodbye!
And then, there was nothing.
As some of you may remember, at the end of last year I started keeping a record of certain quotes from the GameSpot AU forum. I used to update them on my profile whenever I updated my blog, but once I found a permanent job I couldn't keep my blog as updated as I would like. I removed The Blackboard from my profile, but I have been keeping it going this whole time!

A month ago there were some changes in my life, and it meant that some of the things that I did to pass the time became too much and I couldn't make time for them.
A lot of the television shows I downloaded and watched are now off my regular playlist, and my podcast listening habits have also been cut down drastically. I liked writing reviews but it took too much of my time, so it also had to go.
One of the things to go was this very blog, which I've always enjoyed writing for on a semi-regular basis. It's just that I'm too busy to do these "extra" things anymore, and I'd prefer to focus my remaining time on other things like playing games and drinking beer. You know, important stuff.
Something's gonna happen with The Blackboard in the near future. This page is gonna be a ghost town now so there's no point putting it here anymore.
I've got some things in testing at the moment that may or may not amount to anything, but you never know. The point is that If I do get back into creating content for my blog, it won't be any time soon.
So anyway, thank you for visiting my blog in the past. I still always make time to read your stuff, so please keep it up.
Finally, I've dumped my remaining leftover items I had been working on a while ago. Please keep in mind that all content was not completed and finalised, so forgive me if something doesn't make sense.
My Recent Reviews
When everyone thought Final Fantasy was still a Nintendo exclusive the tech demo got everyone drooling with anticipation, but the reliance on cartridges was an Achilles heel. It lost Final Fantasy as a direct result from the lack of an optical drive.
The following is a rather primitive display of the capabilities of the then named Ultra 64.
Can Goldeen really do this? Or is it just an elaborate fake? You be the judge. Feel free to track me.
elektrixxx does not have any recent activity. What a slacker! Maybe you should send elektrixxx a private message and ask, "Where are you hiding?"
