I heard through the grape vine he was given a bunch of crap over something he designed for little to no reason and decided he'd had enough and left the forum. May not be 100% accurate, but probably pretty close to what went down...

Something like that went down. I PM'ed him to try and get him to change his mind, but he was not accepting PMs. That is when I knew he was leaving for good. More's the pity, because he had some very interesting stuff going on and IMO was a valuable resource to the community.

Not sure about Edwort.

I know Kahuna is busy with whatever he is doing now (think it's something to do with a newspaper). He shows up on twitter fairly often.

Biggy and Ed got new jobs and became to busy to be active. Ed was around forever too, so maybe he just got bored....

The Pol got a sandy you know what. He made cool stuff and couldn't handle criticism. The remarks made about his designs were very valid and he just didn't take it well. Don't post to a public forum if you don't want to be corrected. People telling you that you have built something that is unsafe is no reason to get all panty bundled.

I got blasted in the Simple Brewery build thread. Did I cry and quite? No. I made my future builds better and tried to learn from my mistakes. I think The Pol is a good example of how not to act. I also think he rubbed some people the wrong way.

To bad though... it is always fun looking at shiny pictures and he was always good for that.

Pulling your toys out of the sandbox and going home is a crappy move no matter what happened. Maybe it's an ego thing.
