    Does anyone know what's up with celerystalker? He was one of the most active members here and it looks like he disappeared on 9/25. I don't care about the GCC too much at this point, I just hope everything is OK with him.

    I've been thinking the same thing for days. He's one of the last people I would expect to drop off the face of DP. Hopefully it's just life got busy or a computer crash or something like that. He's always trying to give to the community and I'd hate to see anything serious had happened to take him out of the picture. Come back celery...we miss you. I'd hate to have to come up with next weeks titles for you!

    I hope he's okay. It seems strange for someone so active in a forum to just vanish without a word. Does anyone have a way to contact him outside of these forums?

    I've read hundreds of his posts here but honestly don't know much about him and don't have any contact info for him outside of this forum.

    He has a few Friends listed on his profile, I've sent PMs out to them to see if they know him outside of DP.

    I really hope he's all right too. I certainly wouldn't begrudge him from wanting to take a break from the challenge or the forum in general, but it is unusual for him to disappear like this. Unfortunately, I don't know if anyone would have much luck reaching him elsewhere. I seem to recall him saying he wasn't interested in social media or signing up for a bunch of different forums, so I think he's been pretty exclusive to this board.

    Unhappy

    As far as I'm aware, he doesn't do any other social media platforms besides this forum. I don't have any contact information for him besides PMing him here, and I have today, but I doubt he's checking his PMs if he isn't visiting (or able to visit) the main forum.

    I share everyone's concerns and certainly hope he's doing alright.

    I don't have anything to add other than my concern. I hope he's okay. Might make sense if he was in California, but I don't know of anything in St. Louis that might explain his absence.

    p.s. while typing this note I pulled up his profile and he had a "vcard" with an email address, so I sent a message expressing our concern, etc.

    It looks like he has a profile at the arcade-museum forums too, but I'm not registered there.

    I received a reply from celerystalker's wife on his email account. I started paraphrasing her note, but I figure it is really to all of us, not just me, so I'll just quote the whole thing:

    Dear Bradley,

    Thanks for your concern about Mike. He is currently dealing with chronic health issues, and has chosen to spend what energy he can on spending time with his son and me after working. He's often talked about enjoying a game forum and writing at it, so I can only assume you're one of his friends from there. He is, as far as I'm aware, not active online in any capacity at the moment, and I check on his email for him once a week right now. No one else has really reached out to him recently, so I've passed on your message, for which he was grateful. He won't likely be active anywhere anytime soon, as he is prioritizing us right now, just working to make sure we are taken care of if he becomes unable to in the future. We're praying that he will improve and that life can get back to normal eventually, and making the most of our family time. Thanks again for reaching out to Mike, and if anyone would like to leave him a message, I can pass them on.

    Thanks again,

    Kate (Mike's wife)
    I replied and said we'd all be pulling for him in our separate ways. I also told her I'd ask all of you to send any messages through me to keep it simpler for her. I don't know how much that matters, but it makes sense to me. His email is available if anyone disagrees.

    I'm glad that he is still able to work, but it must be tough thinking about not being able to long-term.

    Should I make a new thread for this? I thought about it, but this seemed like a good home for the news.

    Thanks so much for sharing that here, Cornelius, and of course, my sincere thanks to Kate for taking time out to inform us.

    I wish his absence was under better circumstances, but with how dedicated he was to this challenge, I suppose it would take something like health issues to pull him away. My best wishes to him and his family.

    Cornelius, thanks for sharing this. I am hopeful that Mike will pull through what he's dealing with and be back with us soon.

    Well, the challenge is on indefinite hold. I had hoped it wasn't anything health-related that was keeping Mike away, but honestly I'm not surprised. It would have had to be something major to pull him away from his own creation. I hope his health improves and he's able to rejoin the community quickly. But he is absolutely doing the right thing putting his family first. Thank you Bradley for relaying this information to the rest of us, and please keep us updated. We may not be family, but someone who contributes as much as he does is never far from our thoughts. Good night and heal quickly...

    oi much shitty

    I hope his place of employment doesn't run him through the ringer while coping with health issues, the company he works for regularly does.
