Never say never, of course, and maybe future updates will tempt me back... But there's only so many times you can play the same pitiful selection of maps before you start to question what the hell you are doing with your life. 

Ps to the chap who feels obliged to write "bye" every time he reads one of these posts, bye.

Same here. I'll probably join you quite soon. I can't play and I've been spending too much time on the forum.

 

So... Bye bye.

 Copied especially for you from OxfordWords Blog.

1. adiós, adieu, addio, adeus

Besides adieu in French, there are also adiós in Spanish, addio in Italian, and adeus in Portuguese. Adieu comes from the combination of Dieu (‘to God’;)adiosaddio, and adeus have similar etymologies.

2. aloha

This Hawaiian word is used as both a welcome and farewell, but also for expressions of good wishes, love, and affection. Because of how often the term is used Hawaii has taken on the nickname of the Aloha State.

3. arrivederci

In Italian, arrivederci means ‘until we see each other again’. You might be tempted by the arrive- to think that the word has something to do with a greeting, but the word actually comes from (‘until’;)rivederci(‘we see each other again’;).

4. ciao

Ciao has an intriguing origin: in the 1920s, ciao arose as a dialectal alteration of schiavo, which translates as ‘(I am your) slave’. Like alohaciao does double duty as both a term of greeting and parting.

5. auf Wiedersehen

A common send off in Germany is auf Wiedersehen. This farewell directly translates into ‘until we see again’.

6. au revoir

Similar to auf Wiedersehen, au revoir directly translates as ‘to the seeing again’, anticipating a meeting in the future.

7. bon voyage

Another common French term with widespread usage is bon voyage, ‘good journey’, used to express good wishes to someone who is about to embark on a trip.

8. sayonara

Short for sayō naraba, which literally translates as ‘if it be thus’, sayonara is used, according to the OED, to ‘qualify desire to meet again so as not to tempt fate’. Additionally, sayonara is used in English to suggest that something has been finished with, abandoned, or consigned to the past in more general usage, as in ‘you can say sayonara to that those tasty plums’.

9. shalom

The Hebrew word can be used as both a welcome and farewell. Shalom is the widespread Hebrew goodbye that translates as ‘peace’, but a more formal parting would be to say shalom aleichem or ‘peace be with you’.

10. totsiens

South Africans might send each other off by saying totsiens, which means ‘until we meet again’. This word entered English from Afrikaans in the 1930s, originating from Dutch words tot ‘until’ and zien ‘see’.

11. vale

Another interesting valediction is the archaic farewell vale, meaning ‘goodbye’ in Latin. The word comes from the second person singular imperative of valēre, ‘to be well’.

12. zàijiàn

A common send-off in China is 再见(zàijiàn). The verb ‘to bid farewell’ is expressed with  (ɡàobié).

Just a few to bid a fond farewell to you.

 

Shame it was the maps that caused you to leave, although I suspect there was more to it than just the maps.

Still good luck with whatever you choose to fill your time with.

Hope WG can spring some of their meager funds to hire a proper cartographer.

 

In the mean time.

 

Be seeing you! :honoring:
