Anyone know what happened to jauke ?
Sep 1st, 2020 at 9:54am
 
I know I can't read everything and i don't snoop pm's.

But are any of you in contact with him ?

Just seems weird that a couple of weeks ago he 'suddenly' changes all his posts  to '.' changes his username, claims he's found god in his signature and vanishes.

Seems odd - even for a forum full of odd people whistle

Does anyone know what  heralded this behaviour ?
I'm pretty sure it was nothing anyone here did or said - but I'd like to know he was okay.

So if anyone knows anything please let me know - pm if it's not for public consumption.

If you're reading this mate - please let me know you're okay.
or if not, if there's anything at all we can do to help.

I was going to link to his last post but that's gone too now so I'll copy paste what I wrote when someone else asked a little while back:

"As far as I can tell, most of his posts were on his experiments with understanding and improving the sling, but then he came to the final conclusion that the Baleric sling can't really be improved upon, the y-sling was just a novelty and doesn't actually improve upon the sling. Everything that can be done with the y-sling can be done with a Balearic sling, but you can't say the same for the inverse. After concluding this, he decided to remove his wrong assumptions from the forum, but, because of his stream-of-consciousness style of posting, that meant basically all of his posts. Can't say it aligns too much with the scientific method that I think most on the forum believe is the best way of documenting our experiences, but... Anyway what's done is done."

Why this happened, I don't really know. He seemed to be saying that he had come to the "end of the road" of his slinging experiments and so just... left. *Shrug*

Maybe he’ll come back some day. Am I the only person who traded slings with him? I sent him an asymmetric sling, and he mailed me an experimental Y-sling AND a woven jute sling with a tab release.

well as long as it's not an issue in his personal life.
I guess it is what it is.

But I really need to see if I can block the mass deletion of posts.
just not necessary and does make sections of the forum somewhat 'odd' to read.

Had someone on 3dprint.com who bought the same delta printer I did at roughly the same time.

Decided to just up and vanish with all his posts after about 6 months. So my whole delta thread is now more than  a little surreal Smiley

It's not a setting I've ever noticed - but then it's not something I've ever looked for either.

( a short while later)
Well technically users should not be able to delete any posts older than 6 days.
That definitely isn't working.

Oh well - there's nothing else I can change.

I think he may have technically used the Modify function to edit his posts to say nothing? I haven't checked myself yet, but I think it might still be possible, even if deleting isn't an option.

Yeah I don't think he deleted them just took all the words out. It didn't sound like a personal life thing as far as I could tell. He was saying for a little while that after the summer he was going to be "too busy" for slinging so I think it might just be that. He might well be back eventually. He was here a long time ago then suddenly popped back up. Will probably happen again.

His most recent signature said that he had "put down my sword (sling)" and put his dependence on God... I wonder if he left on philosophical/moral reasons? Maybe he decided that practicing the use of a weapon was against his conscience, and decided to quietly drop out of the slinging scene. If he's left and come back before, though, I doubt that's the reason. Honestly though, it's all speculation at this point - we'll likely never know unless he comes back and says so himself. Sometimes life is like that.

Whatever he did to change his posts, he did a pretty thorough job of it - Out of his last 120 posts I counted around ten that he hadn't deleted, all having nothing to do with the Y-sling.

Maybe he found out Jesus was a noodler and couldn’t handle that he was promoting the ysling

Let’s not make too much fun of Jauke. He obviously felt he needed to erase old posts, and that’s frustrating, but I hope he comes back again some day. He was a great contributor to the forums overall, even if it didn’t end well.
