Honoring Retired Staff RetiredStaff-1

So I think we should have a post/thread honoring retired staff so newer people know a little about the history of the site and who these people were and what they did. I'll probably write some stuff up later but for now I'll just post this and anyone who likes can write stuff up and I'll update the thread as we go. Try to keep it mostly related to the site but we can throw in other sites and LR contributions if it's relevant.

Hoping I got everyone! Let me know if I missed anyone who doesn't have an account on wrtl. I also tried to put them roughly in order of when they became staff.

@TechDawg
A myth, woven into the very fabric of Line Rider itself.
Founder of IRTL, Head Administrator, Designer of Line Rider 2: Unbound, Administrator of linerider.com
The man who inspired more people to play Line Rider than anyone. His blockbuster hit, "Make Believe" was released in March 2007, a month after the opening of I Ride The Lines. Make Believe's introduction contained an ad for the IRTL, which was the chief reason for the site's success. TD was far ahead of his time in scenery up until 2008, when he was hired by InXile as the chief level designer for Line Rider 2: Unbound. After this point, his videos shifted towards Unbound, where his impressive colored shading was never matched. TechDawg's interest in line rider and the site slowly tapered off, until WRTL was born and rabid squirrel became lead administrator.

I always forget Hedge is retired. I miss that guy.
And CHiH, the name that no one knew how to pronounce.
And ZNF, a great guy, and amazing track maker.

I remember most (All but stefan?), I was active when many of them were, but those 3 really stood out. Especially Hedge. Fastest promotions, wasn't he?

If it's possible, having them in order of promotion would be cool. Dunno how feasible that is though.

Ganonderma was good at graphics and was a big proponent of the graphics section back in the day.

LRC (I may have this wrong, a bit hazy) first admin other than Techdawg?

For shadoninja, a lot of people may not know what those tracks are nowadays. Links to those videos, or at least saying made the first/most popular edited line rider tracks (Not sure if that's the right term, don't know how else to word it)

Chih, the guy who has always been around and always level headed.  Even as a retired staff would pop in when you least expect it.  Someone that everyone respected.  He also wrote his own book and had it published on amazon!

SigiL goofy guy that everyone loved. Always managed to put a smile on your face.

LineBeast, what can you say? Dude was a beast in all the right ways.

Hopefully that's something to start with

I'm happy I'm one of the only names with no description—it makes me feel mysterious and cool. People that don't remember just assume I was just the coolest and most BA guy around. At least that's how I imagine it :P

Edit: OH MY GOD THESE SMILES. RIGHT IN THE FEELS :P xD 8D Stern but Fair Angry Very Happy
