Rest in Peace Splodge

When I first landed at PSC and without prior chat experience, I found Splodge...ummm...a bit crude but over time I realized he was one of the softest-spoken, good-hearted individuals on this site. I hope he passed peacefully. Our hearts and thoughts are with Tina, whom he loved so much, and his family.

As is evidenced by the many tributes and comments in forum, and by the temporary change in our PhotoshopContest Logo...Splodge will be deeply missed by many of our site members, myself included. May he rest in peace

I remember when you first came on and were put off, Eve. Told ya' to give 'im a chance, didn't I. ;) Thanks for posting a news item. Splodge was a great friend; I miss him very much, and I know I am not alone.

I didn't know him very well. In fact, the only time we conversed was in the chat room about making gifs. He was very helpful and didn't seem to mind explaining something to a newb for the thousandth time. He was patient and willing to help Thank you & RIP

I think Splodge was such an important part of PSC that everyone is still shocked by his passing. He will be greatly missed.

I'll always remember that Splodge was THE MAN in so many ways. He was always ready and willing to lend a helping hand whenever he could and for whatever the problem was. His dry wit comments around the site were short and pointed and often made me smile

Richard Eric Worthing. I didn't know his real name. Thank you Eve. I was wondering but felt funny asking. I am quite sure that my prayers for Splodge made it to heaven. Whatever name he goes by he was truly a great friend to many. He will be missed.

System crashed, no chance of a re-boot, Time pulled the plug, Splodge left life forgood - His life, not ours, dare I say - we will recover him, each our own way. "I am loosing parts"he wrote in his exit note. We pick up the pieces and are left with a ...

quote: "I am too good for you all!" The best way to recall a friend. Rock on forever, Splodge. The end.

You rocked. You were the heart and soul of PSC, and you will truly be missed by all. From the many games and activities you created to our everyday vocabulary around the site, you will always be a part of this community.

PSC and the world won't be the same without you. You had such kind words for me when my mom passed away in Feb. and knowing you had just recently lost your mom, it meant even more. And now, we've lost you too, and I just hope you can hear us now...

Breaks my heart to see so many people grieving, what a huge tribute to Splodge. He was a good friend to DoctorWu. Im glad to see Tina surrounding herself with his friends here at PSC, may she find comfort in knowing he was loved and admired by everyone.

There is no other like him, and there never will be, he was indeed everything that is good about PSC. R.I.P Rick, you are a damn fine example of the human race bud.
