Sleep well, you bozos.
Sorry this is so late, but I was going to reread the Coherent Combinations for Beginners thread and couldn't access it. Then saw that Cobera's posts had the dreaded static avatar that Vox's do. Had to scan back through this thread to figure out what happened.
Was Vox offered a "Dubious Honored" title? Those powers were actually one of the things he suggested.
It's hard to express how sad it is to have Vox gone. I learned so much from his posts. Not just his posts in WAYWRN or the threads he started with his own pictures (Coherent Combinations, construction of ties, ect) or the Subjective And Totally Unfair Digests, but also the knowledge he would contribute to other threads.

Both criteria are of equal value to us. Note that they do not have to agree with me on all topics, including topics about the direction of the forum.
To me, what he contributed in the past and still would contribute in the future is worth far, far more than the new content (front page, styleforum101) have to pay to be developed (Of couse not including the return of Manton, Foo, Doc, ect- that has been awesome). Whatever we can do to keep this level of poster active in MC should be done. If acknowledging his concerns and making a concession to him that he requested would keep him here, isn't that worth it.?
As an aside, does anyone have a copy saved of Coherent Combinations? I actually thought to myself- maybe I should save this onto the hard drive just in case he deletes all this and puts a period in instead.
