Sad lossEdit

Someone who ventured into the realm - another highly competent, resourceful and productive editor of 13 years duration, who simply knew when it was time to go. A sad loss, and a very sadder loss for the Indonesian project here on wp en, very very sad when this happens. JarrahTree 02:03, 18 August 2018 (UTC)

Sorry to see this, but I know exactly how you feel. Your focus was on content, mine was on policies, guidelines, and article quality control. Sooner or later, whatever one does here, something happens to spoil it. Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 03:20, 18 August 2018 (UTC)

Oh man. Your absence from Wikipedia is going to lower the quality on this site. You will be missed dearly. GamerPro64 04:54, 18 August 2018 (UTC)

Very sorry to see this notice.--S Philbrick(Talk) 18:06, 18 August 2018 (UTC)

Sad. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 21:03, 18 August 2018 (UTC)

Sad to see this, Take care Chris. –Davey2010Talk 21:06, 18 August 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for your work. Alanscottwalker (talk) 22:28, 18 August 2018 (UTC)

Thank you for all of your contributions. I hope that the day will come when you will decide to return. Until then, be well. Cullen328 Let's discuss it 23:13, 18 August 2018 (UTC)

Take care and good luck. Wikipedia can be fun but it doesn't put food on the table. If you get the urge, come back and you'll be welcomed. Cas Liber (talk · contribs) 23:50, 18 August 2018 (UTC)

Take care and good wishes. I hope you'll be back. --Titodutta (talk) 07:01, 19 August 2018 (UTC)

What a pity! But wish you all the best. Awien (talk) 15:19, 19 August 2018 (UTC)

Hope You will be back after a hiatus. Wish you the best. --DBigXray 15:36, 19 August 2018 (UTC)

Chris, my very best wishes, and thanks for your guidance over the years. I'm very sorry to see this, and hope your life brings you back this way again. Take care and enjoy the opportunities that are to come. BlueMoonset (talk) 16:23, 19 August 2018 (UTC)

Well said, BlueMoonset. Drmies (talk) 18:49, 20 August 2018 (UTC)

Best wishes for the future, Chris. You'll be missed. SarahSV (talk) 18:44, 19 August 2018 (UTC)

All my best wishes Chris. Graham Beards (talk) 10:15, 20 August 2018 (UTC)

It is indeed a terrible loss for all. I hope real life treats you well. Shyamal (talk) 15:27, 20 August 2018 (UTC)

Not sure if you'll return to read this any time soon, but when you do: thanks for all your work, enjoy the toddler, and good luck with the PhD work. --Floquenbeam (talk) 16:16, 20 August 2018 (UTC)

Hmmm, sorry to see this Mas Chris, all the best, and enjoy the (hopefully temporary) time away. --kelapstick(bainuu) 18:14, 20 August 2018 (UTC)

Sorry to see you go. Shearonink (talk) 19:31, 20 August 2018 (UTC)

I missed seeing you around in DYK, which seemed ages ago. The toxicity of this place is not worth taking when it's influencing real life. Enjoy the time away. Alex Shih (talk) 08:59, 21 August 2018 (UTC)

I hope you come back someday. —usernamekiran(talk) 12:10, 22 August 2018 (UTC)

I am shocked to see that you are going - without your input, I will not have immersed in the culture of Indonesia and write so many articles on that in zhwp. Was preparing some questions since someone in DYKC back in zhwp asked some interesting questions on Indonesian literature, but now I will have to answer them on my own. All the best, --Spring Roll Conan ( Talk · Contributions ) 08:16, 23 August 2018 (UTC)

Thank you and hope you come back after your break! -- Dolotta (talk) 13:17, 25 August 2018 (UTC)

I don't believe we've interacted much, but I've seen your name all over the place and am shocked to see this. Thank you for all your contributions, and good luck with real life. Bilorv(c)(talk) 23:37, 25 August 2018 (UTC)

I echo BlueMoonset above. Keep doing what you do Mr. Chris. Bammesk (talk) 15:10, 26 August 2018 (UTC)

  Armbrust The Homunculus 16:15, 27 August 2018 (UTC)

I see you only blocked yourself for a year, so I'm hopeful you'll be back eventually. Thanks for all your diligent work, including at FAC and TFA, you'll be fondly missed. - Dank (push to talk) 12:53, 31 August 2018 (UTC)

Should you ever come back and read the memorial wall, thanks for all you did to improve ID articles at the EN wiki. Take care, and please consider returning some day. --LaserLegs (talk) 19:15, 7 September 2018 (UTC)

Add me to the list of people who miss you. Sorry you got so frustrated with the site that you left. If you ever come back, then this definitely will be a better place. Snuggums (talk / edits) 02:23, 15 October 2018 (UTC)

Agree with all of the above.--Wehwalt (talk) 19:57, 19 November 2018 (UTC)

Final messageEdit

  • Xaos: do you seriously think five people I've known for five years (or more, in many cases) would all agree that I had asked for desysopping if my account had been compromised? Because of your unwillingness to handle a simple request, I've been forced to come back here. I wanted a clean break. Instead I am stuck with further proof that TRM is meddling in processes he has no idea about ("FIFO", "a bot could do it"... please, do handle the complaints when you have eight painting articles in a row, then nine different banknotes in the same series... and this after your "bot" puts together a one-sentence blurb that contains eight different titles for the same work) and have to waste more time on this site. It's a simple request: no mop for this account. If you can't handle that, I ask that you put yourself up for recall.  — Chris Woodrich (talk) 15:19, 20 August 2018 (UTC)

TFAEdit

Thank you for D. Djajakusuma, "a director who never forgot the theatre, and ultimately returned to it and saved at least one traditional art form. Our article on Djajakusuma (again, as with my previous FACs, the most detailed on the subject in English) was mostly written in 2012. During my trip to Jakarta in December I found a copy of his biography, purchased it... and left it on my bookshelf for three months. I've finally worked it in, and now our article is ready for prime time."! - We miss you. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 06:51, 10 September 2018 (UTC)

Today, thank you for Pah Wongso Pendekar Boediman, introduced: "Pah Wongso was a bit of an oddball, in many ways rather similar to myself. Although of ethnic European (Dutch, rather) heritage, he was very close with the indigenous and ethnic Chinese communities in the Indies and later Indonesia, and married an ethnic Chinese woman. His work promoting education for poor youth and raising funds to help war-torn China in 1938 led him to have great popularity within the Chinese diaspora community, and as such the Chinese-owned Star Film produced two films starring him. This article is about the first of these, Pah Wongso Pendekar Boediman, and features (among other things) perhaps the most detailed plot synopsis of the film published since the 1940s. I hope you enjoy reviewing it as much as I enjoyed writing it." - I miss the joy of your writing, and its education. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 09:23, 13 December 2018 (UTC)

Hi Chris, I've only just seen that you've gone. I know the feeling of being fed up and needing to get away, and I can only hope that you come back again at some point when you're ready for it. The place is much poorer without you, but I hope you are enjoying fatherhood in between the studying! Cheers - SchroCat (talk) 10:31, 9 October 2018 (UTC)

Picture of the day, 7 February 2019Edit

Minggu Pagi (Indonesian for Sunday Morning) is a general interest weekly published by the Yogyakarta-based Kedaulatan Rakyat Group. The magazine was established on 7 December 1948 and switched to a tabloid-format newspaper in the 1980s.

This magazine cover, published 65 years ago today, features a photo of the actress Lies Noor. Born c. 1938, Noor was rapidly becoming a popular actress when this photo was published in 1954. During her career, she appeared in a number of films including Rajuan Alam (1956) and Pedjuang (1960). Noor died in 1961 of encephalitis at the age of 23.Uncredited. Restored by Chris Woodrich

Thank you today for Harta Berdarah, saying: "Hello everyone, I'm back with another film written by Saeroen and produced by Union Films. Like our previous FAs Sorga Ka Toedjoe and Asmara Moerni, I built this article around a novelization found at Taman Siswa's library. Harta Berdarah is a cautionary tale about valuing money over social obligations and the needs of society. Sadly, it is a lost film, and little documentation survives."! - Wish you say that again some day: "Hello everyone, I'm back". --Gerda Arendt (talk) 06:35, 7 May 2019 (UTC)

Realized I hadn't communicated with the only editor I'd ever done a full-on "collab" with in such a long time, and find out you've "departed". Don't know what you're "fed up" with, but I hope it's the sort of thing you'll manage to get over. If not, may you find more enjoyment and fulfillment with whatever it is you're up to.
