View Full Version : MrsSpookyBuz leaving :(

02-19-2010, 10:33 PM
It is with great regret that I announce that due to significant personal reasons, MrsSpookyBuz is leaving LBPC. Usually we don't allow goodbye threads, but she's contributed so much to the site (Creator Spotlight, anyone?), it seems crazy not to.

MrsSpookyBuz has been a gift. She's a truly good person, one that sacrifices for the people she cares about and has nothing but nice things to say, even in situations where friendly words are difficult to conjure up. She spent a great deal of her life adding to the pure awesome that is the LBPC community, and she's leaving it much better off than she found it. She even manages to make friends with nearly everyone she meets, something that I haven't even figured out yet. She's simply irreplaceable. There's not much to say except: Thank you, MrsSpookyBuz. Thank you for everything you've done for LBPC, for its community, and for me. May you continue to bring happiness to the people around you, regardless of the things you might endure.

02-19-2010, 10:35 PM
This calls for a poem. She shall be missed.

02-19-2010, 10:36 PM
Farewell, Spooky. I hardly knew ye :(

02-19-2010, 10:37 PM
This certainly is a big surprise. Is this gone for good or just a long time?

LBPC won't be the same :cry:

02-19-2010, 10:37 PM
I never really got to talk to you much MrsSpookyBuzz, but you always were a great poster and member here, and I hope that whatever's going on is not too terrible... I hope you can come back, and remember, if I can bounce back from where I was personally, and get back to this game (I swear I will), so can you (I really hope that isn't too assumptive, and that it's not a really bad thing to downplay). You'll be greatly missed, and I'm sorry I never got to play with you, or jump in on cocreate.

Take care.

02-19-2010, 10:39 PM
Not much else to say... She really was great.

You were such a help on LBPC: The Game, and I'll miss your feedback and help on that, although I'll be sad that now you can't make level 10.

But regardless, despite how sad I am to lose you from a tactical standpoint, you have always been nice and friendly and all that stuff, and I don't really think anyone actually hated you really... Or maybe they did, but from what I saw everyone just loved you.

But I suppose I can't convince you to stay now... I'll just say bye then, thanks for the help on the Game, but most of all, thanks for being you.

02-19-2010, 10:41 PM
It really makes me sad to hear that MrsSpookyBuz is leaving. She was one of the members of LBPC that really kept the community going. She brought life to LBPC and has always been a very kind, helpful person. She was always willing to help anyone who was struggling or needed some help with LBP, and her advice was always appreciated. Her levels were, and still are wonderful to play and she will greatly be missed. Thanks for everything you have done for LBPC MrsSpookybuz, you'll always be remembered. LBPC won't be the same without you.

02-19-2010, 10:42 PM
This calls for a poem. She shall be missed.

When a lady of her people, one so strong and just
is awry and lost in life, long gone to wanderlust
her fellowship will fail, but will stay to catch her fall
for a memory held close will never be lost... after all

02-19-2010, 10:46 PM
Farewell MrsSpookyBuz, you have had a massive impact on this community and I'm not if it'll function properly without it. You are a very important cog in the machine that is LBPC, and your input always brings life to things I am extremely sad to hear that you are leaving. The massive crater that your presence has left behind will probably never be filled completely, thank you for everything you have done for the LittleBigPlanet community, you shall be missed. :'(

02-19-2010, 10:47 PM
Awww :(

Well, all good things must come to an end I guess and I can't agree more that this community is a much better place for your being here MrsSpookyBuz. Your wit, humor and good nature always seemed to brighten up the place and you will be sorely missed. On a personal level I hope everything is ok and that what is pulling you away from LBPC isn't something bad. Thanks for all your hard work and wonderful contributions to LBP and LBPC MrsSpooky :)

02-19-2010, 10:48 PM
Not much else to say... She really was great. Despite what she seems to think, I can't really think of many people who hate her.

You were such a help on LBPC: The Game, and I'll miss your feedback and help on that, although I'll be sad that now you can't make level 10.

But regardless, despite how sad I am to lose you from a tactical standpoint, you have always been nice and friendly and all that stuff, and I don't really think anyone actually hated you really... Or maybe they did, but from what I saw everyone just loved you.

But I suppose I can't convince you to stay now... I'll just say bye then, thanks for the help on the Game, but most of all, thanks for being you.

Seriously. I loved all the creator spotlights, I liked her poems, and her levels were great... she was a champ. When MrsSpookyBuzz put me in her LBPC level in the trailer, I was so happy, and it kept me going through some bad times where all I wanted was to get back to my friends and creating levels... she made me feel like I was not forgotten on the game, and not just on LBPC.

02-19-2010, 11:05 PM
Oh I'm sorry to read that!
It's sad to see one of the most known and active member leaving... :(
Thanks very much for your contribution to LBPC and for your great interviews!

Au revoir MrsSpookyBuz!
Maybe we'll see you back soon... Take care!

02-19-2010, 11:15 PM
Take care of what you need to do. You'll always have this community to come back to whenever you want. =)

It was definitely a pleasure doing the Creator Showcase with you and all the other things you contributed to LBPC. You will be missed, but not forgotten!

02-19-2010, 11:18 PM
This comes as a massive surprise. I did have the pleasure of MrsSB's company in my pod a few times when we first got acquainted and she was always fun and supportive.

Unfortunately I haven't seen much of her for quite a while but I think that's primarily because she's been so busy with other things as you all know.

Anyway if you're reading this MrsSB I wish you all the best and hope that whatever problems you are having can be resolved and all will be well again soon.

Best wishes from me and mrsvista.

02-19-2010, 11:19 PM
Thank you for everything you have done MrsSB. Few people have been as influential to make LBPC the great, fun and bright place that it is. You will be fondly remembered, and I hope you won't forget about us either.

Let us not be sad that a friend is leaving, instead let us be glad that we had the opportunity to meet such a great person at all.

02-19-2010, 11:35 PM
Goodness me, this is going to be difficult...

- To CC, or as I prefer it, Michael - I'm very touched by your words. You exemplify integrity, diplomacy and professionalism beyond your young years. You are a sheer delight to know, and I am secretly so proud of you. My time here on LBPC has been made that much more pleasurable because of you. This is not the time to mince my words - you are a totally beautiful person. Thank you so very much. I've told you before that I can't predict your future, but I know that it will be bright and successful. Thank you, my friend.

- To RockSauron. Oh, Rock, you are a gem. I know you'll quiver with embarrassment, but I've grown so fond of you over the months that it upsets me to type. Your enthusiasm and patience is a lesson to anyone. It was wonderful for me to watch you grow as a person and as a project leader, and I know that LBPC: The Game will give you the rewards that you richly deserve. I send you my thanks, and lots of good wishes for your future.

- To NinjaMicWZ. Your poem was gorgeous, thank you. I, too, regret very much not getting to know you better. From what I read, you are such an enigmatic and magnetic personality that I feel I've missed out on your company. When it was decided that your character was to appear in the level I was creating, I was overjoyed. I spent over 20 hours cutting out your character, and all the time hoping that you would approve. When LBPC: The Game appears, I hope you do.

- To Dan, Shermzor, and all the Sackcast team. All I remember from Sackcast (apart from the website) is the absolute fun I had when you did your live sessions. You're a talented bunch, and your work is appreciated not only by me and lots of people here, but by MM themselves. I wish you every continued success.


02-19-2010, 11:42 PM
Somehow its hard to imagine LBPC without MrsSB. You joined after I did, and immediately made an impact upon the community with your kind and thoughtful posts, not to mention your several fantastic levels. You helped bring the community spotlight to LBPC, as well as a smile to many a face with your beautiful poems. Gah, it feels like i'm writing a eulogy here, LBPC is at a severe loss at your departure.

As much as i'd love to write a poem here, i'm afraid my wordsmithery isn't quite good enough. However, I hope that you leave knowing this: You have left your mark on all of our hearts.

The best of luck to you Mrs. SB, thank you for all of the good times you have brought to this community.

02-19-2010, 11:52 PM
Dang it... this is tragic news. Sorry to say it so selfishly, but I find this horribly unacceptable and want her back. :(

Arggggghhh!! Aww well, if I must say goodbye, then I say only goodbye for now in hopes of her swift return and whatever the personal reasons are she is facing, I hope they can be successfully dealt with and have her come home to us.

I have to say this though... It was truly a wonderful honor to call her my friend and words can never describe her level of awesome. She moved mountains and generated amazing warmth with her smile. To say it simply, she is one class act. Thanks for everything you have done for LBPC as well as LBP. On a more personal note, thanks so much for what you have done for me. Much appreciated. :)

Farewell Lisa.. We love and will miss you greatly. :cry:

02-20-2010, 12:01 AM
I've said all I really need to say in our private correspondence, but I just want to reiterate that you will be missed around here Lisa. It's really unfortunate that things have to end, but we know that all good things must. Here's to you one day returning to us!


How soon can we nominate her for the LBPC Hall of Fame? Like, right now?

02-20-2010, 12:08 AM
To mistervista - you remain a friend. Your candour, and your no-nonsense, straight-to-the-point honesty is very refreshing. I'll miss your posts tremendously.

To jwwphotos (John) - you, my sweetheart, are one of the most kind, endearing people I have ever had the pleasure to know. Your warmth fills this forum, and I have nothing but utter respect for your flawless personality. You're a big kid at heart, just like me, and I want to send you and April lots of love. Thank you.

To comphermc - you are a gentleman, an enormous talent, and someone who I hold very dear to me. You have a great future in front of you, and I hope to see you online very soon.

02-20-2010, 12:12 AM
Kinda speechless right now, it really is sad to see you go.

There's no doubt that you are a great contributor to the site and the reason why many post on here. I've always admired and sought your opinion throughout the forums and although I haven't always agreed with you, I have always respected it.

02-20-2010, 12:21 AM
im going to miss you mrsSpookyBuz :(


02-20-2010, 12:25 AM
Aww :( Always a bummer to have a wonderful active member go. Anyways, your personnal life is more important than lbp, so i hope you get it sorted out :)

02-20-2010, 12:27 AM
'Tis true, LBPCentral will not be the same. You will surely be missed, MrsSpookyBuz.

Thanks for everything you have contributed to the community.

02-20-2010, 12:31 AM
I don't know what to say either. Your wonderful efforts in the creator spotlight, feedback, and all-around general optimism is irreplaceable. Will you ever some back? Nonethelss, bye, and you won't be forgotten.

02-20-2010, 12:31 AM
This is horrible to hear. MrsSpookyBuz will be missed by many. She was the one who helped me get my moderated level fixed. I have read many threads when she stood up for the many unknown creators that got laughed at because of their first creations. She is a MASSIVE help to everyone. We will all miss you and your huge heart to help others.
Thank you MrsSpookyBuz, for helping me and many others.

02-20-2010, 01:09 AM
When I saw the Headline, I was like: "No it can't be real!" But unfortunately, it was. Mrs, you were one of LBPC's most influent member. Losing someone as important as you here is more than sad. Be sure that you'll miss everybody here and be sure that you will always be in our hearts. I don't know you very well but I know you were someone lovely and friendly. If possible, I'd be more than happy if you could ever come back to us. But you know more than me what your problems are. Anyway, feel free to come back here if you feel the need to. Here, we all love you, this thread exists to prove it to you.
We'll always remember the one who had a "Brilliant future".
Farewell MrsSpookyBuz.


02-20-2010, 01:12 AM
but...but...who will do the spotlights and be the ever shining light of good will? ive never seen anyone more righteous than Spooky :( if you really are leaving then this place will never be the same... :( i guess thats all i can say....

02-20-2010, 01:18 AM

02-20-2010, 01:47 AM
Bye Spooky.. Thank you for all the signifigant words you gave me during dark times in my life. May people do on to you, what you have done for this site. You shall be missed *Places roses*

02-20-2010, 02:12 AM

For God's sakes, please think about this twice, three times if you have to, maybe more, but PLEASE, look at EVERYONE who has come here to show their LOVE for you. I understand if you need a break, but you are a VITAL part of this community; you donated $100 dollars to get us to Vbullentin 4; you've made endless sacrifices so that two time a month we get the scoop on the BEST levels there are. You even wished me a Happy Birthday when only one of my classmates did so on Facebook.

In the end though, if you're absolutely sure there's nothing left here for you, I respect your decision, and I wish you an awesome, happy life. But I truly hope it isn't so. None of us deserves this, SPECIALLY YOU.

EDIT: And please note, this is the first time I've teared up over something like this. Doesn't help I'm listening to McCartney songs either :(

02-20-2010, 02:36 AM
I'm not happy about this news. Not at all. You're making me sing the blues MrsSpooky...


02-20-2010, 02:45 AM
When I told mrSC, we cried and cuddled together. It got weird.

Wait, what?

02-20-2010, 02:47 AM
Oh my... I'm not sure I have the words. When first I read this news I was saddened, but thought, "Ah well... such is life... people move in and out of it throughout the journey and each must follow her own path."

Be happy my friend - in whatever way you must...

You will be sorely missed, my friend, and I too find myself wishing I had taken more time to know you better than the casual poster. Be well in all that you do. I hope that your path leads you back to us some day.

I am sad now. I have not the ability to pen lofty words, so I will lean on one of the greats:

Nothing makes the earth seem so spacious as to have friends at a distance; they make the latitudes and longitudes.

~Henry David Thoreau

02-20-2010, 02:49 AM

well goodbye im sure you will be missed

hope you had a great time

sad i never really got to know you :(

best wishes for the future :)

02-20-2010, 03:24 AM
I'm really sad by this news, but I can't say that I would have reacted any differently had I been in her situation...

However... I completely understand needing to walk away from something that is affecting your life in a negative way. This game has done that to me many times, the most recent example being the Sackie awards, which have pretty much soured my experience to the point where I nearly left, too.

It's late, I'm tired and I'm rambling, but please, I'd love it if you reconsidered. If you don't, though, please remember that we're all your friends, even though many of us live across an ocean. So please don't forget us, and please keep in touch.

02-20-2010, 03:44 AM
i agree ×10

btw...i just found out my grandma died...


02-20-2010, 03:55 AM
I have enjoyed so many of MrsSpookyBuzz' posts and she is an amazing addition to an amazing community and she will truly be missed and none know me that well is because i truly only read posts and never talk to any of you!

02-20-2010, 04:02 AM
No! Say it isn't so! :(

MrsSpookyBuz, you were one of the members in this community whom I truly emulated: smart, friendly, generous, and downright empathetic. You've left a wonderful legacy here, and I'm sure it will be celebrated in the highest regard for as long as this great community lasts. Heck, we should have a MrsSpookyBuz day to remember all your contributions to the site!

You're a beautiful person inside and out, and I hope we see more of you again in the future...

Take care,

02-20-2010, 04:35 AM
Does this mean your leaving LBP? Or just LBPC?

Ultimately I'm disappointed for my own selfish reasons, mainly because there will never be a "The Darkness 2". Why must the good leave forums when they haven't even made "The Darkness 2"? You probably said if you would continue making levels or not somewhere else in this thread but I'm too lazy to read the whole thread. I'll take this time to post a quote that I've been saving for a while now.

"My god Argyle! You...you ripped out her heart!" -Herbert Daring Dashwood

Goodbye MrsSpookyBuz. Forever.

02-20-2010, 04:52 AM
Sad news! :(

I must admit I didn't know her nearly as well as I would have liked, but I will still very much feel her absence.

You'll be missed MrsSB!

02-20-2010, 06:40 AM
I'll try to conjure up a poem:

MrsSpookyBuz... so many things to say,
It's just so sad and tragic that it's ended up this way.
Why with the contributions you've bestowed on this community,
It gives us all a reassurance of friendliness and unity.

Why, just before I knew you more, when I was new to here,
You were the lass I could not pass that made the Hyper Sphere (levels...).
But your compassion and reactions to most problems I see,
Are filled with wit (and a little "Brit") that made them novelty.

From level spammers to programmers (and thrupnies, must I say... :rolleyes:)
You're friendly smile made it worthwhile to post here everyday!
Though you will be missed (and mourned/grieved/lost-many-nights-over on), as the times keep rollin' yet...
You'll always be loved here at LBPC :)...
And that, I'll never forget.

Have a good one, MrsSpookyBuz. It's been a pleasure posting with you.

02-20-2010, 06:42 AM
I cannot say that I knew you personally...but I knew that you put together a spotlight, and you contributed much to this great community, one that I feel privileged to be a part of. So yes, you will be missed, even by us newcomers. I can't say that you should stay or you should go, or say yes or no, but what I do know, is that you'll be missed.. (yo?)

As the others have said, may you return to us one day! But, seeing as this might be the last time for awhile that I'll have the opportunity to say as much...

Fate and Fortune ride with you, friend. May you always find water and shade, and may you live long, and battle well.


02-20-2010, 06:57 AM
Farewell Mrs.SpookyBuz! May a long life await you in your quest.

02-20-2010, 07:05 AM

you shall be miss MrsSpookyuzz.. one day I will learn to spell your name properly..

02-20-2010, 07:50 AM
MSB! I already talk to you directly about all this. I told you i was sad about your decision because you are a good friend as well as a great forum member.
I tried to convince you changing your mind but your decision seems clearly taken. So... I am sad...
I will miss you, LBPc the game will miss you and the whole forum will miss you!

Whalio Cappuccino
02-20-2010, 08:31 AM
I know we didn't talk much but I've known you since you joined and you've always been that go-positive person. Your such an optimistic person, your kindness shines throughout the forums and your pretty funny too. :p

And just remember; Even though your leaving LBPC. LBPC will be waiting, in open arms, for you.

Wish you the best of luck, I can only hope I'm half as nice, caring, kind, and optimistic as you. May all the good that you've done to us, be doubled upon you.

You will never be forgotten. :)

02-20-2010, 09:04 AM
Please... Please change your mind and stay... :( it won't be the same without you.

And if you are set on leaving; please stay for another week at least 2 days isn't nearly long enough :(

This forum taught me to stand up to what I believe in, and I believe that you don't have to leave... just look over the 5 pages of posts of people that don't want you to leave and think, what will you lose, and what will you gain?

Please don't leave :(

02-20-2010, 09:39 AM
Is this actually happening? I didn't really know MrsSB but I loved reading her brilliantly conducted interviews and clever quips.

Sorry to see you go MrsSB, you truly were a blessing to this site.

I wish you a story with a happy ending.

02-20-2010, 10:27 AM
I haven't really known you,but I do know that you contributed alot to LBPCentral,you will surely be missed.Farewell my friend =)

02-20-2010, 10:41 AM
Yet, the most important question remains unanswered. The Darkness 2?

02-20-2010, 11:38 AM
I will miss you. But I thank you for explaining why because I was worried that it was something serious concerning your health or that of a family member. It helps.
You love poetry, as do I, and so give you a bit of John Donne from A Valediction Forbidding Mourning:

Dull sublunary lovers' love
—Whose soul is sense—cannot admit
Of absence, 'cause it doth remove
The thing which elemented it.

But we by a love so much refined,
That ourselves know not what it is,
Inter-assurèd of the mind,
Care less, eyes, lips and hands to miss.

Our two souls therefore, which are one,
Though I must go, endure not yet
A breach, but an expansion,
Like gold to aery thinness beat.

It is that last line there that I liken you leaving to. Gold, refined, and elementally pure, beaten to such thinness that it expands and covers any separation. A fine sentiment for you

And I will wear a hat today as I venture forth, so don't worry. Farewell, Lisa.

02-20-2010, 12:03 PM
Ok. This is quite a shock...and I'm not very good with this type of thing...so all I can really say is you are a truly wonderful person who I shall miss very, very much. :(
You have helped me more than you know and I will always be grateful for that...whatever happens next week.



02-20-2010, 12:32 PM
To paraphrase The Situation...

lmao, awesomemans, you're so awesome.

On a more related note, I'm not going to try to stop you Spooky, and I know we've never had any real conversation, but I do hope you stay, mostly for your wonderful contributions to this site.

02-20-2010, 12:44 PM
Fair dos then Spooky, if you're 100% resolved to leave. All the best in your future pursuits.

02-20-2010, 01:06 PM
OMG, I'm late as usual. I've just found this thread and I'm speechless, very sad...

Whatever happened I hope it is solved soon.

02-20-2010, 01:18 PM
you think you are late poms? D:
I'm...speechless...I mean, I don't EXACTLY get why you're leaving, because you're still able to post now and then if you could and just quit all of your current stuff you do such as the creator spotlight interviews.
either way, I can't imagine what'll happen with the loss of one of the best and friendliest persons on LBPC, perhaps maybe on the internet itself.

I know that we really haven't talked to eachother so my post might not mean much but I've always saw you as a big person.
take care!

02-20-2010, 01:24 PM
I just heard about you leaving from fijski. Im sorry to see your leaving as your such a big part of what makes this site so great and im shocked ...

Im not sure the reasons but the more your loved the more haters you attract.

02-20-2010, 01:36 PM
I haven't spoken to you too much because I'm somewhat of a lurker here, but I've been here for a while so I think I got a feel for this place and many of its members which is why the first thing I thought when I read this topic is that you are dying and didn't want to tell anyone. That was my gut reaction to the idea of you permanently leaving this place at this point in time because I think something like that would have to happen for you to leave. The actual reason is truly baffling...

I don't buy it. It makes no sense.......at all.

If there is an actual reason that you are leaving, then it's a farewell and thank you from me. People like you make LBPC what it is and have helped LBP become an even more enjoyable experience. If the reason you're leaving doesn't actually go beyond what you have posted in this thread, then I cannot say goodbye because you don't say that to people who are running away from you. :(

02-20-2010, 02:18 PM

well i'm not good at this crap but here we go, short and sweet, with minimal tangents.

It draws air through a narrow opening with great vigor to see ya go (not that we ever conversed or anything, but hey, anyone who has been on here for more than a day knows who YOU are, so yea.) I hope you drop in every once and a while still.

On the bright side, I am relieved that it isn't what I thought when i read the OP here. I thought it mighta been something a bit more....uh, you know. permanently debilitating.

and....that's all i got.

02-20-2010, 02:19 PM
Isn't there anything we can do to make you stay?

02-20-2010, 02:55 PM
well MrsSpookyBuz i always though you where a great person... never got the luck to meet you that well but i know you are a great person and a BIG part of this comunity
..wish the best for you.. like kernelM said.. Isn't there anything we can do to make you stay?

02-20-2010, 04:56 PM
Please say this is an early april fools joke? Right? No? :(

I can't imagine what it's going to be like without you. Will you still be able to bring us some more awesome lbp levels?

:( goodbye, have a great life!

02-20-2010, 04:59 PM

I'm sorry to hear that you will be leaving us. You've done a fantastic job and have contributed so much to this site, to say that you will be missed is a huge understatement. I'm glad I returned to LBP in time to get to know you and can't thank you enough for your input and kind words on all that I've done. I'll be sure to keep in touch on PSN, we're friends now!

I wish you the best of luck and hope that you find what it is you're looking for. No sense trying to talk you out of it, if space is what you need, then find your peace.

You will always have a family here and hope that this goodbye isn't permanent ;)

All the best,

02-20-2010, 05:01 PM
I'm sorry to here you leave. I really didn't expect you to leave, since you pretty much contributed a LOT of things to this site. It's like seeing one of the good guys in your favorite movie/game die all of a sudden. I'm really not that fimiliar with you, but your accomplishments have marked you a place in not just this site, but in LittleBigPlanet itself. Your departure will both affect you and the community greatly. Well... ya, that's it I guess. :(

02-20-2010, 05:23 PM
As much as I'd like to keep on the bandwagon.... this really isn't necessary. Not at all. Please, reconsider this.

02-20-2010, 05:24 PM
Well, this is sad :(
Although I've never spoke with you I have to say I've seen you around and seen what you've contributed to the community here. It's a shame that whatever happened, did happen and that's what has caused you to make this decision, but in no way am I denouncing your decision. It's obviously your choice and only you can make it. You will be missed, very sorely missed.

02-20-2010, 05:29 PM
Well as much as we don't want MrsSpookyBuz to go, we have to face the fact that it's not our decision. It's her life. So whatever she feels is neccessary enough to make her leave this site temperarely or permanently, we have to be strong and support her decision. :)

02-20-2010, 05:51 PM
I've lurked this site for the better half of a year and the thing I've noticed is that your posts always brought peace where there was anger and joy when there was sadness. The contributions you've made could only be rivaled by a select few. LBPC has truly benefited from your membership, as I'm sure any place you go will as well.

I refuse to say goodbye though, for it implies an ending. So instead I'll just say...

See ya Later,

02-20-2010, 06:11 PM
Farewell MrsSpookyBuz, thanks for what you've for the community, from the awesome levels, to the joy, to the kindness.
You'll be missed.
Hope that you can set everything and be around soon!

02-20-2010, 06:46 PM
Good bye MrsSpookyBuz.
thanks for all the wonderfull things you have done for the lbp-community.
from Smelling-Cowboy

02-20-2010, 07:42 PM
but I'm convinced that LBPC will continue to thrive with or without my presence.

Wrong... you leaving is like a terrible sign of things to come. Creator's have come and gone, people buy and sell this game alot, but creator's like you are the heart and soul of the game and of this site. It makes me feel like, if I don't get back soon enough, everyone that matters will be gone and LBP will be empty. Stay until we all have a terribly sad and embarrassing "server shutdown" going away party.

02-20-2010, 08:02 PM
I have a huge urge to write a massive post containing many reasons why you should reconsider, but it looks like you've made you're mind up. :/

I remember returning to this site after a few months of inactivity and finding so many new faces, yours included. Since returning, I've always had it secretly in my mind that you're the one who kept me from going inactive again. I know we never had huge conversations, but you're kindness, honesty and humour was a breath of fresh air. The things you've said and done, big and small have made this site what it is today and I can honestly say if it wasn't for you, I would have left months ago. I don't think I'll ever forget you! I seem to remember you saying you spilt whisky down yourself because of me! Good times! ...Well for me anyway!

I guess if we're posting quotes, one of the greats...

"In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends."
- Martin Luther King Jr.

I think everyone knows what I mean... Or he means? Meyeh...

Goodbye MrsSpookyBuz, thank you for all you've done. I promise you'll never be forgotten.

02-20-2010, 08:35 PM
Goodbye spooky you where always there for me when i needed you, when i posted my levels int he level showcase you said things that really encouraged me to kepe in posting levels, i just can't beleive your leaving i will miss you terribly i wish you wearnt leaving good bye.

02-20-2010, 08:41 PM
All the best wishes in everything you do MrsSpookyBuz, you have done so much for LBPC you will be missed.

02-20-2010, 09:17 PM
I really am sad now. I never thought you would leave, but why, we will never know, but it would be for the best, I presume.
And I hope you are still active on LBP, though!


and I am almost in tears, sorta. I can't believe you are leaving! Please stay, you are a great help. Words are words, and don't let them take you down.

02-20-2010, 09:37 PM
Try not to be sad, chezhead. I'm overwhelmed by everyone's comments. I keep trying to type fitting responses, but it seems words are failing me. Instead, here are some poetic song lyrics. They're not mine, but they come from one of my favourite songs. They seem to fit how I'm feeling...

Long afloat on shipless oceans
I did all my best to smile.
'Til your singing eyes and fingers
Drew me loving to your isle.

And you sang, "Sail to me, sail to me - let me enfold you."
Here I am, here I am - waiting to hold you.

Did I dream you dreamed about me?
Were you hare when I was fox?
Now my foolish boat is leaning
Broken lovelorn on your rocks.

For you sing, "Touch me not, touch me not, come back tomorrow..."
Oh my heart, oh my heart, shys from the sorrow."

I am puzzled as a newborn child,
I am troubled at the tide.
Should I stand amid the breakers?
Should I lie with Death my bride?

Hear me sing, "Swim to me, swim to me, let me enfold you."
Here I am, here I am, waiting to hold you."

02-20-2010, 09:42 PM
So there's nothing we can do :(

02-20-2010, 09:49 PM
So there's nothing we can do :(

Well, you can carry on contributing and having fun on here. And we can play still LBP, I hope. :)

02-20-2010, 10:08 PM
I just found out that Zwollie is also leaving :(


02-20-2010, 10:17 PM
Owww I am very sorry that you are leaving :( I still remember you were the first one to welcome me to the site *hugs* thanx for making me feel welcomed and I joined your sweet group and met lots of nice people :3 thank you so much and I hope to hear from you soon ^^ take care, you will be missed by all of us !!

02-20-2010, 10:38 PM
wow im so sorry that your leaving i hardly knew you but reading all your posts ur like a sister i never had. goodbye

02-20-2010, 10:58 PM
Well she doesn't have to leave, we can always tie her down. :P

02-20-2010, 11:10 PM
| Why didn't I think of that. (o.o)b

02-20-2010, 11:10 PM
Well, goodbyes are always sad. Maybe you dont know me.. but i know who you are. Because your name was present all days in this site. I played your levels when i was not even a member of central. And i dont know why... but i feel sad, because im sure youll be missed here. People love you and you let a space in blank... and theres no one that can fill that space. In mexico we say a phrase to people when they have to make a travel ( In some cultures ). Que tengas buen viento MrsSpookyBuzz Te extrañaremos Sack girl !!!

02-20-2010, 11:22 PM
| Why didn't I think of that. (o.o)b

It'll be a fast and clean job, no witnesses...

...But idk where we'll keep her locked...hmm...

02-20-2010, 11:25 PM
Nah, don't tie me down. Simply have me stuffed and placed on the Introduction thread. If new members can put up with that, they can put up with anything!


02-20-2010, 11:40 PM

LOL!! Sorta like an LBPC hood ornament!

I believe, under the circumstances, we would say "bonnet mascot".

02-21-2010, 12:23 AM
Vortex has it right! :)

02-21-2010, 12:27 AM

LOL!! Ya know, I knew there was an English version of that, but all I could think of was the boot and that was the wrong end. ;)

02-21-2010, 02:20 AM
Are you leaving forever, and are your leaving LBP too? You haven't left yet, so when are you really leaving?

She doesn't know whether she'll be back, and as she has already said, she's not leaving the game just this site. She leaves tomorrow, or depending on where you live, today(Sunday).

02-21-2010, 02:44 AM
I never knew you much, but as I can tell you are a wonderful member. You will be missed. I just wish I got on the forums earlier! :(

02-21-2010, 03:17 AM
well i do hope you come back :( this just doesn't feel right at all

02-21-2010, 07:29 AM
Awww.... :(:(:(
I feel sad now, surely this community has lost someone great!

Honestly, i didn't see you around very much, but when you did all i can remember from you is kind feed back and good words. You will be missed!

02-21-2010, 07:54 AM
Awwww, bye bye, Spooky! We're gonna miss you! :(

02-21-2010, 09:41 AM
I don't have time atm to write a long message but I just thought id let u know that u were such an inspirational figure for many on this site: Kind, helpful and always a friendly face to turn to if there was a problem. You managed to literally welcome everyone who comes to this site! Wow! You will be missed MrsSpookyBuzz... I'll hope to see you around on lbp sometimes.

Good bye,


02-21-2010, 10:43 AM
G-Good bye Spooky, may you return one day. And if you do, we will be waiting for you. You are always welcome here.

02-21-2010, 11:36 AM
Bye Spooky :(

I love your levels (will you continue working on them?), and your contribution to the site seems huge. You will be missed.

Sorry I'm no good with goodbye messages :blush:

EDIT: Just noticed if you hover over her rep rectangles, it says she has 'a brilliant future' :)

02-21-2010, 12:51 PM
Big hug, You'll miss us.
I even felt sad reading that you would be going,
and I have never really had the time to get to know you.


02-21-2010, 02:16 PM
Goodbye Spooky. We will all miss you very very much! *hugs*

This calls for a poem in your honour, it's a Limerick:

There once was a user called Spooky,
She was oh so clever, but kooky!
She went on LBPC
Instead of watching TV
Now she's leaving because of ol' Pooky.

Well that sucked :p

02-21-2010, 04:24 PM
I really didn't know you well, but you were still the only one that has written on my page here, and also was the first one to leave a nice comment on my level. (which I accidentally deleted, sorry for that...)

I really don't know what to say, I just hope that we can live on here on LBPC. I'm just afraid that LBPC will never be the same again...
Hope you can find peace without the problems you had here, and maybe we can see you come back some day.

02-21-2010, 04:53 PM
Well since it's obvious we cannot convince her to stay, I decided to keep my word and trap her. :P


She's trapped somewhere in LBPC, I won't say where but if she tries to escape...well the pictures say it all. And if she ever thinks of leaving again...well, you just don't wanna know what's going to happen, lol. :)

02-21-2010, 04:56 PM

LOL!! I dunno.. she doesn't look too happy. Could get interesting!! ;)

02-21-2010, 05:16 PM
Anyway! Good Bye Spooky! You made a great impact and we shall carry on!

We're gonna miss you! Good Bye!

02-21-2010, 05:36 PM
Who will carry on the Creator Spotlight without you? The Community Spotlight team (or a member of it)? :(

02-21-2010, 06:19 PM

lol - those pictures are hilarious! Is that you, Endless_Echo? Any any case, they're brilliant!

@clapton_fan - I'm not sure if Cartman has decided who's to take over the Creator Spotlights. I've sent him my two remaining ones today, so he should have a couple of weeks to decide, or to wait for someone to volunteer.

02-21-2010, 06:32 PM
Well, whoever you plan to pass the torch to,
They'll carry on the Spotlight the same as you ^_^ <3

/poetry lulz

02-21-2010, 06:44 PM
lol - those pictures are hilarious! Is that you, Endless_Echo? Any any case, they're brilliant!
Well thank you. :) And yes that's me, I made them this morning, the hardest past was getting the hair colors just right. :P

Anyways, I won't say goodbye because I'm sure you will one day return, so for right now I'll just say cya, we will all be waiting. :)

02-21-2010, 06:48 PM
Well thank you. :) And yes that's me, I made them this morning, the hardest past was getting the hair colors just right. :P

Believe me, I know the feeling! ;)

Anyways, I won't say goodbye because I'm sure you will one day return, so for right now I'll just say cya, we will all be waiting. :)

Well, that's very nice of you. But I'm afraid it's a one way ticket... :(

02-21-2010, 07:01 PM
Though I did not know you so well, but your Posts in the forum were always friendly, well, and sensibly.
It is a pity that you go.

02-21-2010, 07:45 PM
Okay, I think it's time I wasn't here. A couple of quick PMs, then it's time to go.

Thanks very much to everyone who's commented. It's been really nice reading all your messages. I wish everyone all the best and good luck for the future. I've had a really great time on here, so thanks for having me.

Goodbye, and thank you. :)


02-21-2010, 07:50 PM
i'm relatively new to the forum but not to LBP and i know MrsSpookyBuz meant a lot the community. we're gonna miss you!

02-21-2010, 07:52 PM
It's official, then....*sad sigh*... Thread lock? :(

02-21-2010, 08:00 PM
MrsSpookyBuz was such a great LBPC member. She brought life and happiness to this site. It is sad news to see her go, but I hope that she finds joy wherever she goes in her life. Farewell, MrsSpookyBuz!!

02-21-2010, 09:18 PM

Take care Lisa! Thanks for everything!!! :)

02-21-2010, 09:33 PM
Well, just heard about this... Then had to read 10 pgs. of sympathy... It's surreal and stupid, isn't it? I am so relieved you are healthy and fine. I hope this decision enhances your LBP experience... but it won't. Don't know wether to salute or just scowl... I just wish you well, and Thanks.

02-21-2010, 09:39 PM
So everyone, what would you do if MrsSpookyBuz suddenly posted here right now saying "only joking"?

02-21-2010, 09:45 PM

02-22-2010, 03:23 AM
Lisa is gone, so there's not much sense leaving this thread open. We would appreciate if you would all let this personal matter be left to those for whom it is personal...

Instead, let us be thankful for Lisa's actions to always provide positive feedback and a helping hand. She was one of LBP's premiere members, and she will be missed. I hope you are all understanding of why this thread is now locked. You will find no satisfaction in continuing to pry. Bygones should be allowed to be bygones. LBPC will continue to not only exist, but strive, without Lisa. This is because it is not about an individual person, but the collective whole of the community that makes us so great.

Thank you,

AN EDIT BY BABYDOLL1970: To anyone who has managed to dig this thread up, hello, first of all :) Secondly, you'll notice that a lot of the posts have been either edited or deleted. This was not done in an effort to restrict any freedom of speech. The negative effects of this whole situation have continued to be felt in the community and we felt it was time to wipe the slate clean - a fresh start for everybody. I hope those of you whose posts have been affected will be understanding.

Out of respect for Lisa's wonderful contribution to this site, I have left all genuine messages of gratitude, farewell and well-wishing. I have also deleted many posts that were off topic and therefore of no value to the preservation of this thread. All posts have been given the same edit reason - Let the past be the past :) So please, let the past be the past. Lisa is still missed, but LBPC has survived and still thrives and we have moved on, so please, let's just keep moving forward.
