The R.I.P Tree

Post by DS » Fri Jul 05, 2013 3:46 pm

Not really a discussion, mainly just me being curious about it. I've known this was there for over a year, and always wondered why it was there. I was riding my BMX around the hills and came across it. Asked a few people, they didn't know who the character was and how he died either. So I figured I'd ask here. Was Johnathan Doe some big time character or something?

It's an admin who died in a real life car crash. Back in 2008, I think.

Сколько лет на империю - и все потеряно. Ее можно вернуть, но не вернуть время.
Впервые в жизни так сильно щемило душу, он был плохим отцом, и вот стал бывшим мужем.
И пусть идет кукла, хотят дочку жалко, он не держал ее - знал, что держали бабки.
Но это раньше - теперь ни любви, ни дружбы, странно - вот так раз и никому не нужен.

Холодный разум, никогда не знавший равных, искал решение проблемы, будто программа.
Но был бессилен, ведь сердце уже все проспало, если кто и простит его, только мама.
Вот уже полгода не звонил ей - стыдно. Цветы, ключи, машина - рада будет сыну.
.. ... чувства рвут изнутри, ведь он еще никогда ей не дарил цветы.

November 1st 2007 if I'm not mistaken. It's one of the founding members of the community, most of those who know him aren't around anymore either way. And according to some site it was a crash between a van & his sport bike.

Thinking about it.. I guess the only admins left, who would've known him.. Would be Damian and Krisk. Maybe Kiril too.

He died too young and way too early, RIP Doe.

I think its one of the nicest gestures to see in Gaming History in my opinion, I've visited the tree once or twice (Its symbolism though is lost on me, or perhaps it was a random location) and I find it quite haunting but at the same time humbling. After all the cake and ice-cream of LSRP, the Admins do have a heart. But RIP Dude, sad to see someone go in such a horrid way. At least he won't ever be forgotten by any stretch of the imagination.

There used to be a PCJ-600 at the bottom of the tree, too. I remember when his death was announced IG, everyone in the server literally froze for minutes :(
