A day shy of a week ago Robotech Master was out on his e-bike when an SUV struck him and drove off. According to the most recent news available, he passed away from his injuries at around 2:00 this morning. I have kept some news up on his user page and, at this point, ask that anyone wishing to leave messages or tributes do so on either his talk page or another page that can be used for such things. His account here and all of the stories he has gifted the Shifti community with will be preserved in memoriam, as we also did for Morgan.

Ylourgne Expanse

I notice you've blanked User:Michael Bard/From the Ylourgne Expanse. Would you like me to delete the page? (Also, since I keep running into this ambiguity, I've created the template {{request deletion}} that you can add to a page when you want it to be deleted. Just for future reference. :) Bryan 19:43, 30 November 2007 (EST)

Dude, you should see if anyone wants to buy this story.

It does need a bit of tweaking but its still a really good quality short.

On Finding Himself.

An honest to goodness twist on Xanadu and costume TF in general. But wouldn't the fur suit have been effected by the curse when he put it on? And would the fur suit have -kept- the changes in quailty after he took it off? I can think of about a thousand other possible endings for this story, I know however that is not my place.

There are various ways I could have done it. Yes, the fursuits could have stayed changed once they were taken off. But, to me, that was too easy. he goes home, quits his job, and makes fursuits for a living. BORING! So, I took the easier way. I originally had a different ending in mind, but the one I ended up with kept dragging me towards it so I finally surrendered...

Template:My stories

Hi, just thought I should drop a note here since I imagine most authors won't be regularly checking Help:Templates for updates. I've finally added a template that I should have created long ago, a tag to put on userpages to facilitate linking to your personal story category; Template:My stories. If you want (it's entirely optional), just stick this code at the top of your userpage to create a standardized little box with a direct link in it: {{my stories}}.

Oh, BTW, a tiny proofreading note: you spelled "fogey" as "foggy" on your userpage. Might want to change that, it brings to mind odd mental images. :) Bryan 22:34, 18 January 2008 (EST)


We discussed this briefly on IRC last night. How about Category:Essays by Michael Bard as a subcategory of your user category? Just give the word, or nod silently, or maybe twitch your eyebrow in an affirmative manner, and I'll set it up and recategorize everything that needs it. Or you can suggest a different category name, or even tell me not to. :) Bryan 13:57, 4 March 2008 (EST)
