A Farewell for Candy Star

Ziggy + Angel + Rain

1351 views

I'll keep this short; though "sweet" doesn't necessarily enter into it.

 

Things, unfortunately, didn't work out for former member Candy Star (his last user name being Tom Snyder) here at the forums. Since he's not in a position to do so himself, he asked me to express his goodbyes to MLP Forums.

 

"Thanks for all the fun and your support."

He kept making shops that were distributing things that he did not make himself. Effectively plagiarising the work of others.

You're kidding...no. I won't accept this. No way. Not at all...Stop it-it can't be the truth. *Rubs eyes*

Debatable.

It's fine if you're not going to miss him- I get your point of view, honestly, I do- but there was more to Candy than his most recent blogs and request shops. He also cared about his friends and making them happy (he used to send them lots of funny videos, and talked about how much he appreciated them), and people here have had good memories with him... If you prefer to forget him, then that's okay, no-one's going to blame you. But from the comments here, it's clear that some people will miss him...  I won't reply after this since I don't want an argument to happen or anything, but let's put Candy's flaws aside for now; please remember this blog is for farewells, not 'good riddance'. :kindness:

 

 

 

Though I could see this coming, it's still sad to see him go... hopefully things will go well with him, whatever happens for him next. :(

He seemed way too defensive / sensitive too be on any kind of internet forum in my opinion. I remember commenting about some gameshop owner firing a guy and he was verging on the point of abusive too people who had any form of opposite opinion too him.  Also if what Vinyl scratchy said about him copying other peoples work / distributing it was true then no loss on that front, as a producer myself theres nothing more infuriating than people doing that. 

 

However no one should ever be ''pleased'' at a member leaving, he had his flaws true but he seemed like a nice enough guy, sometimes people simply don't fit into communities, shouldn't be seen as a massive drama fest and i'm sure people aren't banned without prior warning. Hopefully he finds a place he can feel more comfortable in.

I liked Candy Star as well, but in the end he did break the rules and I had to report him, again. For the same thing he did the first time. Of course, being human means I do regret doing it. But then again...

 

Someone has to.

I won't go too deep into this, but Candy probably also had some deep problems in his life, that made him very sensitive. I won't go into details about what i know, because that was between me and Candy, but he really needs help and i don't mean that in a spiteful way, but in a genuine concerning way.

Judging by his defensive and overly sensitive tone to various differences of opinion that I have seen from him that does not surprise me. I hope he gets whatever help he needs, I have had some rather nasty problems with depression and anger issues in the past myself and would not have gotten past them if I didn't get help so there is no shame in it.

I think the issue was that he had anger issues. He seemed to have this problem of lashing out at anyone who criticized him which lead to him getting in more trouble.

Well, many will miss him. It was a pleasure working with him on his fanfics. I hope that he does well with those. 

 

He will be missed.

Poor candy star...... Well I'm sure he made a new account and is laughing at our grief.

 

He's not allowed to do that. The staff would see the identical IP addresses and ban the new account for the same amount of time as the original one.

I never knew my brother was this well known, i'm trying my best to make him feel better after the hard fall he took after leaving. I had to use his com since i forgot to bring mine with me. If i explain why i have the same IP address, i'm sure they will let it off.
