Technical, 4000 posts   that's not even half way to the 10,000 mark that I want to accomplish before I leave (croke) this forum. You my friend have to much knowledge to leave us poor soles out here to fend for ourselves. What makes you even think about leaving here? This is family and you can't just quit the family. Besides you said we could be clones and that means you can't leave till I do.

Bob, your Sasha's avatar is a litte bit serious  ;D
Poor soles? You have the best companion in this forum. But you're right, how can I even think on quit the family  ::)

Hang in there, Technical -- you've been a great help to us. Totally aside from your assistance to individuals, most of the great technical (and even a few of the admin) sticky threads here were your own work, like the one on the INI and the newer FAQ's.

Thanks Mike, we are all pleased to find you in the forums too.

If you've got things happening in your life that will make increasing demands on your time, at least drop in a couple of times a day.  And for heaven's sake, please don't get any ideas that we're tired of you or your help or even just your companionship.
Best, Mike

I'll listen your advice if things get worse: at least drop in a couple of times a day

Yea the Off-Topic forum needs you to keep it under control!

Oh, Techie is much more than we need  ;D
What about a board that have only:
avast Evangelists and, at the same time, Pro version users...
I think they deserve the better help support than all.
But don't tell this to Pavel or he will give us more and more work to do  ;D

I know that at times we spend hours upon hours sitting here by the computer answering posts and doing research.  It is hard to do and it takes much of us. But in return, we go forward knowing that we have helped as many as we could... those users who would not have the support that they need.

You know me very well bro  8)

You have been a leader and friend for a long time.
I have followed your trail and learned much from you.
Your are an inspiration to us all.
For you to leave when you have contributed so much here in the forum would be a loss unmeasurable.

Techie, you too... Maybe I have to learn from you guys how to pass difficult momments.

Yes, there are many others, some of whom you mentioned, that do their best to assist users, but behind every good team is the "leader" who guides, directs, supports and teaches.

Well, all of you too... I can't imagine myself as a leader.

Please stay.  The words come from the heart. Techie

What can I say...  :-[

Having burst through the 4000 barrier, perhaps its a bit late to run and hide.

David is always a pratice man and do not let me an exit  ;D

Perhaps you could let some of the others take the load whilst you work on the Users FAQ. I also think that the Users FAQ should be more prominent In the opening forum screen, something like a bold text heading.
First Visit - Please read the avast! Users FAQ thread (with appropriate link).
This would I believe reduce the overall number of posts as it should overcome many early problems.

I really apreciate your quoting. That thread could, in my opinion, save some of our time for leisure and higher helping if we could  :)

It should also indicate the information we need in order to be able to help them, rather than the current process of extracting information from them bit by bit (like a dentist pulling teeth it's painful). This should also speed up the resolution process and reduce the time required to help. Just my 2pence worth and a please not to give up, we are rank amatures clutching at straws by comparison. David

That was the purpose as you get it... Sometimes painful, can we give up?

Technical, are you serious or just kidding   ::) :o ??? ?

I do not start this just for joke... I'm not kidding as someone could think.

I can't even imagine these forums without you and all the good guys here. We are like a family, it is not a good thing losing one of the family.
keep going pal   ;) :)

Well, the forums will stay here and become better and better with all your participation as well. Anyway, this is my favorite Egiptian friend  8)

Technical,
We all feel the same way as  minacross. I can't understand what brought you to this terrible decision?  Is it something any of us either said or did?  Please let us know what we can do to make you change your mind. :'(  :'(  :'(

Bob, it's a long journey and it's very late now to write it all...
Your friendship can change my mind... Believe it!  8)

And best of all, Technical... these forums are not just about avast! issues... they are for making friends and contats as well. Alwil knows that, and they approved our posts even they are not avast! related in any way sometimes... You are our friend and we want everything to stay that way !

Sure, I remember your first posts... Your avatar at that time and your language.
I remember the first contant with the Canadian boy!

If you leave, I'll leave... I promise ! (dead serious)

I think this is more words that reality. I appreciate your friendship so much.

you know, you are one of the family  ;) ;)

Will any of you leave me in the future...?
How can I live without you too?
I hate to lose family members too (Techie, you know I prayed for your Mom).

I miss Cojo, she's at the Hospital and cannot be here  :'(

Hi Technical, You are the first person I've ‘met’ on these forums ; actually, you sent me a kind PM. Then I saw the HUGE work you've done here : I've read your FAQ, your amazing softwares' list, etc.

You're the lucky 5000th guy! Sorry that I do not explain what I was talking about at that time when I sent that IM.

I understand forums can be very addictive, and consume much time (I've posted 7500 and 3400 messages in two french boards dedicated to Windows and computers for a broad audience). And sometimes, life expects much more than sitting behind a PC.

So, you understand me. I can foresee that you will contribute a lot with avast to, won't you? Wellcome on board.

Whatever your choice will be, keep up the good work :).

Thanks man.
