    Is there no customization option to remove single "things" from the front page? I don't want to get rid of the entire news thing, but I know that some forums have deep customization options, and I thought I'd ask. When the lead singer of Frightened Rabbit died, I was devastated, and that still affects me when I think about it. I don't want to read about it, so I'm hoping there are customization options. I looked in the options and only found things that would allow me to limit it to the "3 most recent new stories", but maybe there's another way? Thank you, by the way.

    Damn it! This is sad. Did not know the guy but I feel as bad as same.

    People are really complicated. Actually, that's normal for human begins. There is a very famous Youtuber in my country, Brazil ,who has millions of subscribers and recently he claims he got depression. I quite don't understand why a person like him got this kind of disease. But definitely happiness is something very subjective.

    I hope he may rest in peace.

    Damn this is upsetting. Can't believe people would argue in the comments and make this about them. Really disrespectful guys.

    Wherever he is right now, I hope he's resting easy.

    Not in the general sense. Social media is a relatively new term that encompasses sites like FB or Tweeter. BBS have those outdated by 20 some years. A BBS could be used on a social media site, but having a BBS doesn't make your site a social media site.

    Will miss his reaction videos, will also miss him chilling out on stream, entertaining the chats with random stuff.

    He kept saying sorry in his last video. What a goddamn sad day. RIP though Etika ma boi.

    I think the first time I saw a video of his was when I was googling the tinfoil RCM method

    I've been super sad about this all day. When I found out, I cried for a solid few hours and couldn't stop. After I finally stopped, I just entered a state of being a sad sack of shit, and I'm still in that state. I just wish I could have met him IRL and gotten to know him more personally, but location was a huge issue.
    Rest in peace Desmond Daniel Amofah. Your journey has been, as you would say, a damn good one.

    From what I can recall there's a very good chance that etika was being manipulated/brainwashed by a cult called "the Venus project". Dunno if they ended up pushing him over the edge or something, but he definitely didn't deserve to end up like this. RIP.

    From what I remember, the Venus Project theory was confirmed false.

    What? Get out of here with those conspiracy theories. That's super disrespectful. Dude literally had a history of mental illness.

    I honestly feel more bad for Desmond's family members and friends than Desmond himself. If he had serious mental health issues, why didn't he find actual help? Remember, this was the third time in a row, the 2nd time and the 3rd time weren't thay close off.

    This is really upsetting to me. I found Etika when looking for 3DS hacking scene videos in 2013 or 2014, and I've followed him ever since. A relatable, exuberant guy, and really down to earth. I know his shenanigans in the last few months were unpalatable for the most part, but the dude was really a good guy. You can see his moment of clarity in his last video, and that is what makes it sad most of all.

    I'd like to thank him and his followers for all the years of entertainment and community. I'd like to thank GBATemp, because without this forum and the hacking scene, I never would have learned about Gateway and I never would have found Etika.

    If you're depressed or even suicidal, just know that there are people that care about you and things can always get better.

    And about that, same. This first wave is now done (server drama and hot news). Now comes wave 2: Etika's young and obnoxious fans doing shit and Youtubers that will make video after video after video that WON'T GET OUT of my recommended.

    I'd like to encourage all of you to lend a hand to anyone you think is in need of emotional support.
    For depression patients, a simple SMS or even a missed call would make a huge difference in their day.

    Please do whatever minute effort you could spare as it's a whole lot for them.
    My deepest condolences for Desmond's family, friends, followers and anybody who'd given a thought about him.
