  1. Lars,
    Well, we all knew this day might come sometime. Hope you leave your previous blogs up. I need to learn how to build my WordPress page up a bit. I have tons of poetry and lyrics and a bit of creative fiction that I could work on.
    Stay in touch!


  2. Paul, look for me on, it’s a new site that pays cash and is looking for participants. I’m not interested in pissing off the GJOpen folks, it’s easier to move on, especially when there’s other action available. I took down most of my GJOpen-related summaries but I left up some old examples and my notes on things-to-do, which I can try later on other platforms if the opportunity arises.


  3. Saw you had changed to “Inactive-102” overnight, and came here to check why. Will miss you, Lars, but hope to stay in touch


  4. Hey Lars,
    I just now realized that you left.. Honestly, I thought you just renamed your account as a joke. I get why the GJ-team would not want their page to be scraped, but the data posted here has been quite entertaining and I’ll def. miss your posts! I might check out almanis, not to be really active there but to get some insight in how their platform differs! 😉
