    Okay.
    Idk what happened to @MarcusD, but this isn't normal. We speak almost every day, and he hasn't said a word about vanishing.
    The last thing that happened between us was literally him telling a joke, then us laughing at it.
    He's now added a [RIP] tag to his Discord profile, and restricted my (and possibly others') access to his GBATemp profile.
    What the actual fuck.

    If anyone knows anything about him, please tell me. I'm seriously worried.

    EDIT: He's been offline for days, too.

    I only recall him saying he was leaving the 3ds scene, so I don't see a reason for his absence!

    Here's a quote from Discord of me trying to be an online detective:

    mmhhh, suspicious
    It may just be no internet connection
    Kingy-Today at 8:28 PM
    Last activity in this server: 3 days ago
    'lol'
    That status update must of came 3 or 2 days ago.
    I'd personally wait 5 or 4 days before having a freak out.
    He most likely was busy, meaning that he is technically 'dead' online for a bit
    He could be on a vacation (Unlikely)
    His status post hints that he could indeed be busy or is trying to find a new hobby instead of coding.
    Give it a few days.

    I'm legitly worried about someone whom I haven't even met in person (and that's a rare thing BTW)! He is a great dev and the number one reason of me moving to Linux. Not to mention why I began researching SMM3DS saves. And I'm sure he must be a great person too (judging by his lewd jokes at least :P). I really hope he's OK!
    (Wonder what will all those news sites say that wrote articles about OCDM tho.)

    Seems like he pulled a cell9 and ditched out because of source code beggars...

    Woah woah woah. Wait he just got back on Discord literally right now on "Do not disturb", changed his profile picture and removed the RIP from his username! REJOICE! He has also now changed his Temp profile picture and unlocked his profile! Alright he messaged me, Smiley and kingy. So uh he's safe :P
