    He's probably unknown to all the newbies, but any older member will tell you in a second that bvasgm (pronounced "buh-vas-gum") was awesome. Dude was genuinely clever, completely ridiculous, and a great BF2 player to boot. I used to be quite close to him- we'd talk all the time- which is why I got to wondering if he'd fallen off the face of the earth or something.

    Turns out I wasn't far off.

    Link

    He died at the beginning of the school year. This whole time he's been gone and I've had no idea. It's weird, I haven't talked with him in so long, but even now I can remember how he sounded in BF2, laughing in that ridiculously deep voice of his. RIP, Nick- you were too young, but wherever you are, I hope you're happy.

    Ah well, I was kind of hoping he had a familiar avatar.

    Damn shame though, to those that were close to him

    hold on a minute:

    on his members page:

    Date of Birth
    April 12, 1989 (19)

    on his obituary:

    Birth: Apr. 12, 1990

    Nah, it's definitely him. I'm still friends with him on facebook. His page was covered with RIP notes from friends and family...

    Anyway, let's not turn this into a debate over the validity of that page. I created this thread to say goodbye.

    I remember the name, which is more than I can say for a lot of other names around here. Got a vaguely positive feeling connected with it as well. Sucks that that's all I can say :( Very sad.

    I take it you knew his name irl, JNightshade, and that's how you were able to find this out? EDIT: Never mind.

    Weird. :/ I certainly remember his existence, but I've never really known him well. I know he was a cool guy. Pretty much along the lines of pesh/dalamari, but less assholic. RIP :(

    Speaking of, anyone know where Pesh's gone? He hasn't been online for over 10 days.

    God damn it, what the ****, It feels like it was only yesterday where me, Qonfy, J, and Borgasm were making BF2 demo stunt videos!

    God, what the ****. ;(;(;(;(;( I'm seriously on the verge of crying right now.

    RIP. :(

    I never got to know him personally, but I remember him well as an HL2.netter. How could I forget a nickname like Borgasm?

    I was just recently wondering what happened to the guy, after rewatching Qonfused's BF2 videos where he was credited.

    Poor Borgasm ;/

    Oh my...we used to speak frequently via PM, we had a lot of run ins. I remember him getting his post count reset a few times, he made a 1000 posts thread and it became synonymous with his borgasm name. He was the only members with the 'Senior Member' title too IIRC.

    I can't believe he passed away last year, he was a good looking lad from that picture. He had his whole life ahead...damn, this is horrible :(

    edit: Reading my PMs from him back in 2006 when I recently joined the staff and was implementing some new ideas for the site. He congratulated me and wished me luck :(

    He was a great guy ;(

    Good ****ing god.

    I can't believe this, he and I always exchanged happy birthday PMs (he was 4/12, I'm 4/14) and used to chat quite a bit (plus he was present in the BF2 demo glory days). Last time I talked to him was saying happy 18th birthday to him. I wondered recently where he'd got up to, this is completely ****ing awful. Thanks for letting us know JN. Rest in peace Nick ;( It's terribly unfair that you got gypped out of life by some dumb shithead not paying attention at the wheel.

    Thread stuck for the older members, he was around quite a bit back in the day and had forum friends besides those who've already posted, and as Stern says it's not often this community loses a member.

    I'm quite disturbed by this. I wasn't great friends with him, just another e-buddy, but he was a genuinely friendly, good dude and the world lost something here.

    I recognise the name, I'm pretty sure I can put his name to an avatar, too. Never did have any conversations or run in's with him, but I remember him. Goddamn shitty thing to happen n' all. :(

    Rest in peace, man.
