I'm sure there are other posts which explain ten times better what I'd like to say, but whatever.
We actually haven't talked very much in all this time, but I've always known you as a very devoted person to the site, as well as a really wise person. Good luck S.N.N.! I hope to see you back someday.

I want to make it clear that I am not going to up and vanish (frankly, I don't think it would be possible for me to do that after sticking around and doing so much over the past several years), but I will hardly be as active as I was in the past. You'll still probably see me posting now and then on the forums.
I've really never seen it comming at all. It was like you suddenly decided to leave, and then...
Seriously, I'm gonna miss you (we all are). Your work for the community was so huge I honestly see how will the site be in the future. This was really the last thing I would've thought was gonna happen.
Well... since everything really has been said and all... there isn't much to be said anymore, but... yeah.
Good luck, and hope to see you around being active, again. Hopefully as staff member again yes? :[
Well, I suck at writing stuff like this...
I've been around almost the same time (I say almost because I didn't know about acclaim and I missed the firsts months of this site), so I've seen all his ascension from simple mortal to all-mighty admin, so somehow I was already expecting this to happen, not as if I wanted to, but as part of natural progression, everyone has leave a place someday, the sooner or the later, it was going to happen.
So, good luck with your studies SNN, I know you probably don't remember me but thanks to you I somehow started to improve at graphics (and thanks to you I maintained far away from porting until these days, lol)
inb4 comments saying "Read the latest posts" and similar. The following is only relevant to SNN's first post as I do not have the time to read through the last eight pages, therefore I'v no idea of what's been said thus far.
Oh my gosh, you are actually doing this!? Well, can't say I didn't see this coming. But you're going to find it really hard to stay away from here. You're reign in this realm has been a very decent one, and I always knew the site was in good hands with you around. It is sad to see you go, I can honestly say that because you and myself don't go too far back, even though I myself have been here 5 years. Aside from the SMW Hacking section, which is mostly the only place I visit here, you and I haven't had much contact. I sincerely don't know if I regret not talking to you much more, but I do hope you have a nice time away from here.
Um, eh... In comparison to the time you joined here, I've just joined this site, and since then I've always seen you as the one who would never quit administration (at least not this early). At least for me you were THE admin of the site. The best of you is the way you were professional and funny at the same time.
I wish I had known you a bit better, but I rarely could speak to you; only once or twice I saw you speaking on IRC, and I sent one or two PMs regarding problems I had with other users (good times). Well, that counts like something, I guess.
So yeah man... You are going to be surely missed by each of us in the site. Take care SNN.
Well, I didn't know you that well aside from seeing your post on this forum in such. In fact I recall my only contact with you was me asking for permission to do a playthrough of SMWCP. (Funny on my end.) Either way, it's still sad to see you won't be an admin nor won't be around as much anymore as you've played a big and important part in this community and this site.
With all that's on your plate at the moment, I suppose it was bound to come sooner or later, though I still hadn't expected it so soon. As you step even further into the real world, I wish you the best of luck man. Seeing you as a normal user is going to feel a bit weird admittedly but at least you still got the well deserved custom color.
S.N.N., you've done so much over the last few years to help the site's community and the site itself, that this is tear-jerkingly hard to say. I, along with thousands of others, will surely miss you.
You've done an incredible job over the last few years, and I hope that one day, I can get to be on the same level as you. You've been an inspiration since the day I joined this site, and even before then.
It's been an honor to have you as an Admin.
Although I haven't got the chance to get to know you well, you are one of the most admirable people I've ever seen in my life. For reals. Every single thing you have done for us is truly astonishing and it all deserves full of respect. You will definitely do fine in the future. Guaranteed. Best of luck to you, and take care! b
If possible, we should get together at a bar sometime in the future, and discuss something we both are interested in! (jazz/VGM music, e.t.c..). I and you seem to like same stuff!
SNN, as a fellow Canadian, I'm going to miss your presence on SMWC a lot. It makes me feel sad to hear you're leaving us, but nonetheless, I hope your future endeavours bring you success and all that other good stuff you deserve.
Anyway, best of luck to you, and thank you for all your contributions and stuff to this place.
I understand what you are going through. Real life priorities have too kept me busy away from this little hobby of mine. It too used to be a big part of my life but as time goes on we realize that things comes to an end but are replaced by better ones. Good luck with your studies.
Being of the 'rarely involved member' category, I knew relatively few things about you, save for your great contributions (both as an admin and as a hacker), deep implication in SMWCentral's life and, last but not least, general all-around witty awesomeness.
That being said, I still want to take part in the (too ?) solemn but hope-full replacement for a proper farewell party that is this thread and say : Enjoy your life, have a nice career and release all your stuff *cough* stay classy.
Someone needs to make a new trophy for most emotionally moving resignation. I don't know much about you, and I don't follow you avidly, but somehow, like an evolutionary instinct, I can feel that this place won't be the same again.
-------------------- Hmm. . . not sure what to say so I'll just stop talking. . .
I was never really close to you, and I doubt you even know who I am, but goodbye anyhow. Thank you for all your contributions over the years yada yada yada. Not really much for me to say, but I thought I'd chip in anyways.

S.N.N.--he spent but five short years upon this earth of ours, blooming up in brief splendor, then just as quickly scattering on the winds like the blossoms of early spring, and yet he chose to devote the entirety of brief life to the service of our fine hacking community. Few others have ever succeed in accomplishing so much without even reaching primary school age. For that, sir, we salute you. I thus hereby propose that the fourth of November henceforth be known in the central as S.N.N. day, a holiday to observed by the act of pissing in and on cars while reciting lines from Goof Troop. A noble tradition in honor of a noble man, who died so that we--and Mario--might live.
Nice way to put it Sinc-X, and because of you, it made me think of this:
S.N.N. we haven't talked too much only a few times, but you were the top dog on this site. We're gonna miss you, but we understand your decision and hope that everything works out for you. I'm glad you'll keep visiting from time to time. Once, I get my hack done, I want you to be the first to play it and review it to tell me what you think. I'll keep in touch with you. Thank you for everything you've done and take care of yourself. To end it all, Goodbye Buddy
