It says a lot about him on here that people noticed when he logged out for just over a month, considering how there's many accounts on many sites who simply go inactive and no-one looks for them when it could be that they also passed away.

Having read the amount of good deeds that he's done offline, he seems like a really nice person.

There was a quote “The flame that burns Twice as bright burns half as long” - But 20 is just too early to even say that about him. It's way too soon and a real tragedy.
words cannot describe how i feel right now. nobody deserves to die at such a young age.
it was great to have you around, ex, buddy.. you will be missed.
While I never talked with him, it's terrible to see someone go at such a young age. I hope he's in a better place now.
That are extremely heavy news and it's worsening my mood. I like the idea SNN has in regards of the VLDC9 memoriam. I had played Mafia and Werewolf with him, so I was not that close to him, but it's heartwarming to read that he has so many friends in this community.
Dang. This isn't nice to hear.

I've seen eXcavator around SMWC a lot so it's a name I was always familiar with. Even with brief and small amounts of contact and conversation it was always nice to talk to him.

I wish all his family and friends the best.
eX was one of my friends as well. I couldn't say anything bad about him if I tried; he cared, cared about everyone. He always listened, but often couldn't be reasoned with; being adamant about whether you're correct or not is important, I think. It's certainly not a bad quality.

I, too, echo the well-wishes and prayers 'n such. If we are judged in the afterlife, I can't see him goin' anywhere but up.
eXcavator was an awesome guy and the events on how this even happened are devistating. While i know i haven't talked to him as much as I would have liked in the past few months, I really enjoyed the times we interacted with each other, wether it be on the board, smash bros, etc. I truely feel like I lost a good friend.

I don't think there is much I can even say at this point that hasn't been said, but we will truely miss you.
rest in peace, man. it was great knowing you for these years, and you left this world too soon. i'm thankful for the time we spent talking on the IRC back when i used to come around more often.

i don't know what else to say. condolences to his family and friends.

I haven't really interacted with eXcavator, but it really sucks for someone like him to die at a young age. Hopefully he's in a better place now.

It's taken me awhile to think of anything to say. This whole thing has left me pretty shaken, and I still don't know if it's entirely set in yet.

eXcavator was a great friend to me and countless others around CaffieNET, and I only regret I hadn't seen him as much as I should have these past two years. The time I spent chatting with him and organizing events with the Minecraft crew over years will always stay with me in memory, and I only wish the best for his family in this troubling time.

Folks online aren't just names on the screen, and it's important to remember that everyone you meet is a living person going through things we may not understand, and things can happen suddenly without any warning. Keep in touch with those close to you, and always make sure your 'online' friends know just how much you care about them and everything they do, the same as you would any other friend.

Follow me on Hermitscape for random bits of game design talk and pixel art, or even request something for me to draw.

It truly feels strange to come to the realization that anyone you talk to on the internet is indeed an human being and that they could die from one moment to another. Life is such a fragile thing.
Rest in peace.

I never really got to know people on here, eX included, but nobody should have to go so young, and I can see how much respect he commanded on here.

Rest in peace man.

Please pardon the eye.
Don't think I've talked with eXcavator but I wish I had. He must've been a cool person to be friends with and never got the chance. Very sad that this happened to a person so young, my condolences to his family and friends. I just feel really heavy inside now, very sorry to hear this.

Rest in peace eXcavator.
Well, that's... Shocking.

I'd only interacted with eXcavator a handful of times in forum games, but still, this doesn't feel real.

May he rest in peace.
Rest in peace, eXcavator.
I will miss you.

I am yoshi9429 enjoying Lunar Magic and Touhou Danmakufu ph3 and RPG Maker MV.
Rest in peace eXcavator. Even if I don't know him, it's still sad that someone passes in a young age like he was too young to die. We will miss you.
Wow, i log back in to SMWCentral and i see this in the front's saddening.
I'm not as active as i usually was, but seeing this still makes me feel like someone is missing from the comunity, and at such a young age, it's awful.
eXcavator, we never met and/or talked, and i kinda wish we did, may you rest in peace

It's best if the option of sending him messages gets disabled, because it's just a matter of time before some asshole troll starts spamming him.

It doesn't matter if he's not with us anymore, let's do this for respect.

Also, i second Cynook's comment, it's only a matter of time until some disrespectful little idiot decides to send a PM to his profile

Don't be sad guys, for he's in a better place, and in our hearts.
Goodness, no idea what to say. It was great to have you during the few C3 Skype session we had on the radio. We didn't talk much, but those times back then were great.

Regards and condolences to his friends & family.
This is terrible. I didn't talk much with him, but he seemed like a nice guy. I mostly know him from the Video Game Music Tournaments and Contests. I'm still shocked about this. I don't really know what to say.

My condolences go out to his family and friends. May he rest in peace.
Alright I've finally got time to process this.

This is really the first time a death hit me pretty hard. I was too young for my grandmother, and my grandfather was already gone by the time I was born. Didn't know much about my mom's cousin, nor about my benefactor or my priest.

I really did love exca. We came here on the same year, so I've pretty much spent the last 5 years getting to know him. I became good friends with him even though I've never heard his voice, I really loved talking to him because of our same interests. I've had tons of spats with him in arguments, the most public of which is still stickied in the Tutorials section. I don't really feel bad for it, even now that he's passed, because it really did make me now exca better and become friends with him.

I feel for his family. Parents should never lose their kids before them, and it really is heartbreaking. I am with them in solidarity.

exca, I'll miss you guy. I never saw your face, never heard your voice, but I've been Bowser Bombed by you even though that move sucks ass. Thank you for letting me know you.
