Default Where is Russ?

This isn't really "fun", but what happened to Russ?

He hasn't posted recently, his profile is gone and so are his youtube videos.

He had a couple of videos on there of the 2 cycle engines but they're gone now. I checked those after I noticed all his info was gone from here. Sure enough those were gone too!

Like Jr said, I don't think the muffler thing was enough to get him going, he had a sense of humor. What's weird is that his videos are gone too. If you click on one of the links to them they say they've been removed by the user. He didn't just abandon the site and leave all the information there, he got rid of everything.

I haven't heard anything. I might email him and see, though, it does seem really strange. Bummer, what a loss!

It looks as if his account has been removed... and the only way to do that is to contact the admin

Well it's not that we wouldn't have, and it wouldn't have mattered if he hadn't posted in a while, it's just that all of Russ's stuff all of a sudden disappeared and then his videos did too.

I didn't erase the account. There's still plenty of his posts floating around, just do an "advanced search" for his name. His account is set to "invisible".

It's not uncommon on forums for a very active member to disappear.. Sometimes a life change means they need to work more, they're moving, want to focus on something else.. Hard to say but with luck, Russ will be back after a break.

So, when the account is set to invisible, all the info is still there, it just can't be seen by the rest of us? Or is everything gone and we can't see it anyway?

I hope he comes back, I still haven't finished with the lawnboy engine I got LOL

Honestly I wasn't even aware of the option. I can see his posts still, maybe it's because of admin privileges.. Try this: http://www.diygokarts.com/vb/showthr...highlight=russ

Well his posts are still visible, I meant his profile and stuff when you click on his name doesn't show up.
