We had our disagreements at times, but looking past that he was a great builder and I very much respect his strive to innovate. His criticisms might have seemed excessively harsh to some, but to those of you that thought it too harsh, I'll say this: Constructive criticism is not meant to hurt you; it is meant to help you improve. If you can't handle it, then either ignore it or grow a pair.
Oh yeah, I had a conversation with him and he said that the “community is stupid”, so I told him to remember who upvoted all his stuff to make him #1. Next thing I know, he leaves with no response @AircraftoftheRedStar
@C5KN you have no idea how far from truth you are. We're talking about a builder who always pushed for innovation. His builds were always mobile friendly, yet more detailed than high part count builds. His efficiency is unmatched by anyone.
If anyone missed downloading his Tu-95, you can do so here
Thank you! Look on my latest forum.
You should start building again. You were really good (: (;@AircraftoftheRedStar
Sort of. I’m still active on the site, just that I don’t really have input to build :(
U still here bro
Not to be rude, but all of use have pretty well noticed for round about two months.
HELLO SENTIENT BEINGS OF THE PAST!! BOGDAN IS BACK!!
It comes from an old game that says "f to pay respects" @KnightOfRen
I've been a fool
@NOICE101 it is not. Please grow a pair, thanks :)
Is writing “grow a pair” not sexually suggestive? @SupremeDorian
What is "F"?
He was one of the few best builders, but he was rude part of the time, being highly corrective to other builders, and blocking random people. But either way, he’s still a human being. He should be treated with respect like everyone else. RIP

As someone who got to talk quite a bit to Bogdan, I can attest to the fact he was (and if it weren't for him leaving, would still be) one of the best builders in the community. His part efficiency was possibly unmatched. His ability to cram so many details using so few parts was his very own ace-up-his-sleeve. In fact, I still have his Strela armored car, as its low part count makes it great as a scale model when making maps. Let's not forget his innovations in a wide number of fields, among which there's also my specialty aka tanks.
However, as with all people that have ever trekked down this long, arduous road called life, Bogdan had his own flaws, some more prominent than others.
The few times we got to discuss more intellectual subjects, he would always take a superior attitude, the "I'm right, you're wrong" kind. Personally, I don't have a problem with this kind of attitude so long as you make the other feel like an equal, except in his case, he would make me feel like a complete [insert the word that starts with i and ends with t made of 5 letters here], as if he is the all-knowing, all-encompassing superior entity, and I were the [insert the word starting with s and ending with d made of 6 letters here] monkey that could never grasp basic intellectual or political reasoning. His intent was good, I can assure you of that, but the way he did it left much to be desired.
I've talked to him countless times about how he takes this game very seriously. And I understand that this game is like no other: thanks to the many, many hours of work the developers put into the game, it became much more than just a game. You can create replicas down to the little bolt keeping together two metal plates. But before all, we must ask ourselves, haven't we forgot something down the road? Oh yes, we did. SimplePlanes is a game. And the purpose of a game is, before everything else, to entertain you. Entertainment comes in many shapes, whether that be creating highly detailed replicas or engaging with the community. The community especially needs to stay young at heart in order to get over what I would call fun drains quicker. The means through which it achieves entertainment are many: memes, funny builds, friendly banter, groups, and so on.
If you've kept somewhat of an eye on what's been happening recently, you know that he wasn't particularly enthralled with the whole German Corsair meme. He took it very personally, as a sort of insult to the amount of work he'd put into his builds and here come dat boi, with a plane so simple, yet so ironic, and gets tons of upvotes. The art of memery at its finest; not sure Bogdan would agree on that.
All in all, I think we could call this entire [insert word starting with s and ending with t made of 4 letters here] storm by calling it Bogdangate. And if we could learn something from this episode in our community's history, it would be that good music must also come with a good tone to it; that is, your building skills may very easily be worth nothing if you can't interact with the community in a peaceful, pleasant matter.
I can't believe this...
So for those of you who were here about 6 hours ago, you may have seen that my comment on the situation got pinned. Now, it was deleted, apparently due to the cursing part being "overboard." If one, single, curse word out of around 300 other words means "overboard", then I suggest that person reevaluate their standards. What's interesting is, it's not the OP that deleted the comment; rather, it's someone close to Bogdan.
Interesting, innit? His name, however, shall go unmentioned; that is, until they wish to make themselves known to the world.
As for the actual comment, I'll write it as separate.
