Erick Wujcik passed

<< < (3/9) > >>

Rel Fexive:
Good-bye and hello, as always.  Condolences to his loved ones, it is a sad time for us all but for them especially.




I wish Mr Siembieda could have stopped mentioning his company's woes and putting 'TM' against the names of his games in these messages.
That is all.

Nihilistic Mind:

Rel: Kevin has a certain way about him, and you could certainly say that he's probably not expressing things in a very good way when it comes to Erick & Palladium, because the way he's saying things leads some people to feel that he's being exploitative or something.

But I know for a fact from my own interactions with Erick that he was very sincerely concerned about these sort of things. That's the kind of guy he was.

Consider this: Erick had not only given his name and the authorization to make this forum the OFFICIAL Erick Wujcik and Amber DRPG forum, he also agreed to be a moderator here.  Now, when I offered him that job, I assumed that he what he would do with it is basically be on here talking a lot about Amber or his current projects or whatever.  As it turns out, he didn't do too much of that; I certainly wish he'd have had time to do more of that sort of thing.

But you know what he did do? Everytime I came onto this forum, I'd see (with my super Admin-vision) a bunch of spam threads with the marker "Deleted by Erick Wujick". Instead of lording around on here and giving sage advice, as he certainly had EVERY right to do, and no doubt many of us would have loved for him to do; Erick was humbly and modestly deleting spam messages to make sure that his forum didn't have any ugliness to it. He knew that I would be doing that same job, or if not me any of the other mods, and he knew that it was NEVER assumed he'd have to do that kind of work here, but he did it anyways, as though he was just some everyday volunteer mod for this site and not Erick motherfucking Wujcik.

And he kept doing it; right up until the last time he ever logged in here, on May 29th. Yes, about one week before he died, when he was already in hospice care, dying of cancer, Erick Wujcik was logging on, coming to this forum on theRPGsite, and deleting spam messages. Why? Because he cared about this site, and wanted to help out, and he was my friend, and this place and the people in it mattered to him.

That's the kind of guy he was.

So you can have some issue with Kevin Siembieda's choice of words, but don't doubt for a second that he's telling the truth and that what he's expressing is not some kind of wishful thinking on his part; its what Erick was really like, and the way he really cared.

I don't doubt Mr Siembieda's sincerity of feeling in the slightest, and I certainly do not question Mr Wujcik's commitment to his friends and humbleness of spirit.  It's just even when posting about the passing of a great friend Mr Siembieda seemed unable to let go of his TM and (c) and (R).

"Never mind, let it go, let it be."

Sorry for the temporary derailment, folks.

To be honest, I think it's more important that Kevin is going to be trying to make sure Erick's legacy stays in print. If he does that, I think we can forgive him a few TMs and (c)s.
