Goldentoad has to be one of the finest writers I know on Hubpages. After another flagging of his latest Hub, he has decided to leave, tonight. I am very saddened, to see him go. He delighted us with his hubs, had a huge army of fans, supported other hubbers with his comments, added so much spark to the Forums, inspired so many other hubbers, I strongly urge all hubbers that adored him to use this thread to tell him what he meant to you, to pay him a tribute here that he will treasure.
GT He Was The Prize Writer Hubber From The Streets Of L.A
His writing was outstanding,polished, captivating earning him an all-time high record of fans.
He Wrote A Beautiful Hub Dedicated To Our Lovely G-Ma Johnson
This Hub touched our hearts, it showed what a beautiful heart he really did have.To those who stood by him he gave the world to and to more as well. His Avatars Changed More Than We Change Our Underwear
Farewell GT,I will really miss you here. The contribution you made to Hubpages will always be remembered. You were funny, unpredictable, entertaining,extremely talented, challenging and most important you were and will always be my top friend.You welcomed me here, gave your support to my Hubs and some of the most funniest moments I have had here have some-how involved you lol. ****A good friend is hard to find, hard to lose, and impossible to forget.
Golden Toad was without a doubt a genius at writing and I enjoyed all his personas and if he really does go it will be a hell of a lot boring without him. GT if you are reading this forget a few rules, just bypass it by toning it down.
Don't just think of yerself, you bring a lot of joy to a lot of people and trust me nothing does that better than the written word and nobody does that better than you. Reconsider mate, not just for yerself, but for your fans of which I am deff one !
I loved his tramp avatar and although he was a smelly Toad I just fell in love with not just his writing but the man. You have fans man besides those Raiders and us pirates laugh at your antics most nights.
You are a unique guy, so dont just bugger off or I will track you down and tie you up again. Not many have your talent Toad Boy so don't be a real Toad and hide under that stone, get your ass back.
If not all I can say is at least I got to read the most talented writer I have met on my time online, but reconsider Toad Boy !
Let it go goldentoad, we would all like you to stay including management! You turn a lot of traffic with your wit. Maybe just write some stuff elsewhere? Your unique style will be sadly missed if you leave here, and I know you are able to get past this if you give it some more thought.... Please?.
Crap! I hate it! Why do all the good ones leave! *saunters off for some heavy crack*
On second thought *comes back* ... *waves a shoe at 'you know whos'* ... *saunters off*
On third thought *comes back again* and properly bids farewell to Toady now that he's leaving:
*"It was great knowing ya John. Am so glad to be in contact with you somewhere else too. I shall sorely miss your writings and certainly it won't be the same here ever again without you. You were our 'Golden Boy' indeed, and we shall always think about you when we would laugh at HP. Take care and me shall follow you elsewhere ... love yer writings ya know dear. And I shall give ya big, squeezy hug no matter how much ya scream this time" * BIGGEST HUGNESS* .... *Another squeezy hug*.
John........I support you whatever it is you decide......stay....go.......write a novel....bitch about your job.....stick around rattle the chains of the newbies......write a murder mystery involving members of Hubpages. You my friend are a talented guy and can do absolutely anything you put your mind to. Salute
Hey man, it isn't 'cause of that awesome anti-Raider joke I brought in to that sports forum is it??
Kidding aside, I will go forth and look for you elsewhere so that I can continue to enjoy your writing. Hope you'll change your mind about HubPages as you are sort of popular here if you hadn't noticed.
*raises glass in salute of GoldenToad, the RaiderFan*
Goldentoad raiderfan remember that the great gonzo were intially vilified too. James joye's Ulysses was banned in many countries. Lady Chatterlies Lover was banned. You are in good comapany. A James Elroy, Hunter S Thompson in the making. I have a sixties song for you: "I will follow him Where ever he may be I will follow him" by the Shirelles (I think)
You are so cute C.C, as well as being clever, you know the rest.Hey your new avatar looks like the Hubber here, Peter, I just can't quite think of his last name, you know the really nice talented Peter here, who has a son here writing too.
Is Toad completely split or might he be lurking around catching some more love? If you're still here, GT, I want you to know 3 things. 1. You suck. 2. You are a brilliant, brilliant writer. 3. But you suck.
Ok, so since the Penguin update I have sat here listening to lots of Hubbers complain of loss of traffic. Now we're not talking a little fluctuation in numbers, we are talking 80% gone overnight! For people...
Hey hubbers out there.. I am new to hubpages and i am not sure if I can really make money here. Like i have seen some success stories in hubpages but that seems to be long time ago. I am a student and i have little...
There are two newly discovered hubbers who have only posted raw translations by using online translating tool, what they did was merely copy and paste the results without doing any further modifications. From the...
You can't. Just had to put that out there as I'm seeing newbies all over the forums going on about these topics lately.Serious money comes from getting views from Google NOT from having other hubbers visit your work....
Is it really viable to let anyone and everyone join HubPages? As hubs are now quality checked, why not make the first hub a test to see if they can join. It is obvious from hub hopping that people with little writing...
