EvaGeeks has lost one of its finest.

Are we able to put up some kind of banner for him on the forum?
Rite of Reclamation - an Evangelion/Halo fusion, check it out, is pretty neat.

You can remind yourself of the banners he made for us by selecting the theme with "random banners" in your user control panel.

I thought of making a plain black banner with some memorial text, but I suspect that would have offended his design sense!

Wow. I did not see that coming. I'm at a lost for words.

Randomly lurking for the first time in months, this is the last thing I ever expected to read. Far out. What a tragedy; NemZ was young, starting a new direction in life and was a massive presence in the EvaGeeks community. My condolences to his family and friends, truly.

I can’t say I really interacted with him much but I liked and massively respected NemZ. We even enjoyed some of the same things: The guy liked 90s Vertigo comics, difficult platform-action side-scrollers (Mega Man, and the Mega Man Zero series, specifically) and we seemed to have the same tastes in Eva fanfic. On the flipside, he had a predilection for 2D or sprite-based games over 3D, and staunchly EOTV as opposed to EOE. I always admired that last one.

NemZ was the kind of user who, like a few of the other Old Guard and members at the time, made me want to actually join this forum, comment and try to contribute, as opposed to just lurking. His posts, while they could be battling, were always interesting and valuable.

RIP NemZ, you will be missed, man.

Not to make light of someones death, but I've NEVER seen you type profanity.

Was he one of your closer internet conversation partners?

Only just saw this, RIP NemZ. It's horrible to see someone pass before even 40, my condolences to his family and friends.
Is the 3.0 spoiler policy gone?.... Cool, then I'm nominating myself as EvaGeeks 1# Sakura Suzuhara fan/nerd.

I mean, predictability is the central attraction and the narrative hook that we've all come to expect from the Evangelion franchise. How come Anno can't realize this? Twice? - FreakyFilmFan4ever

Was not expecting something like this when I came around to check on this place. To think my first post in ages would be about someone's passing.

I didn't know him well, but he was obviously a highly valued member of this community. He had too much to look forward to at his young age. My condolences to his friends and family.

Rest in Peace, NemZ.

I only knew him through the interactions seen on the forum. He may have PMed me a couple times to fulfill moderator duties, but it never went beyond that. (Not that I am remember, anyway.)

It's just that he's been here for as long as I can remember. He was fun to discuss things with, and he was only 38 when he died. This news kinda came outta nowhere. I really don't know how else to react.

Squigsquasher, late to the party and ban evading for one final time.

My deepest condolences to his family and friends. I was actually fairly good friends with him, and he was an awesome dude. I feel a little empty inside to know he's gone. He was a funny, smart guy and I will miss him deeply.

And no, I'm not gonna say anything tasteless or offensive. This is sad, I'm legitimately shocked.

Rest in peace, buddy. The world is a worse-off place without you.

It's always shocking when someone's life is cut short, especially considering he had found his true calling. In my short 10 months on the forum, I came to respect him and his presence will be sorely missed.

The last time I posted anything on this site may have been years ago, but this news weighs heavily on my heart. Rest in peace, NemZ.

I am deeply saddened by this. NemZ was one of the most interesting members of the forum and his artistic contribution with the banners really made the site look better. I love many of the banners he created, and it's always a nice surprise when one of my favorites pop up from the randomized pick.

He will be truly missed. May he rest in peace.

I may not have known NemZ as long as most of the people who are commenting here, but I can easily tell how important he was in shaping EvaGeeks. A community cannot live without one of it's leaders.

I'm sorry I don't have any more words to say; I wish I could've known him better. May he rest in peace.
