Was it expected to appear?
Did it not appear at certain time? In certain location? At all?
Are there any people relevant to this puzzle? If yes: 1? 2? 3? 5? 100-1000? 1000-100000? more?
Arrival - as something has come?

Was it anticipated to appear by scientists? Some might be scientists, but irrelevant Is weather relevant? Isn't it always? But not relevant to this puzzle...
"It" is rather vague. Can we clarify what "it" might be?

Is Arrival on the airport? On the train station? If neither, is that meaning of "Arrival" in the puzzle sentence correct?
So, the person did not appear, correct? Only one person? H?A?M? Is a profession of that person relevant?
Did the person arrive at all? If yes, did something happen to the person between arriving and the moment when he/she was anticipated to arrive?

Is Arrival on the airport? no On the train station? no If neither, is that meaning of "Arrival" in the puzzle sentence correct? not pertaining to transportation or relocation...
So, the person did not appear, correct? yes Only one person? H?A?M? a HAM Is a profession of that person relevant? not to this
Did the person arrive at all? he arrived If yes, did something happen to the person between arriving and the moment when he/she was anticipated to arrive? His arrival is verified. He has yet to appear. We hope nothing untoward happened to him.

Any electronic devices relevant? Or computer programs? Did he physically arrive somewhere, yet fail to appear on some sort of "record" of arrivals?

Is this a true story? If no, could it have been? Or does it require suspension of disbelief?

If "computer game" is not quite right then video game? Chat room? Discussion forum? MUD? Long distance board game? Is the Internet relevant in any way?

Could you tell he arrived because you can see some sort of forum stats page that I can't find that tells you who is present or has logged in recently?

Could you tell he arrived because he posted in the Chatroom or other non-puzzle thread?

We determined that: he hasn't posted in the puzzle thread, neither in chatroom, nor in any other non-puzzle thread. He did not send you a message. He did not post under other username. Any of us could have easily determined his arrival - all correct?

Did you see his username in recently solved puzzles? no Did you see on his profile that he'd been recently posting? no

Was it his profile that told you he'd arrived? But not that he'd been recently posting, so... Did you see on his profile that he'd recently logged in? Or recently registered?

When you saw his username, was it in the context of meaning his username? Or was his username something like "New member" or "Post number" or "Free Range Shuttlecock" which just happened to be used for a different meaning?

Was it his profile that told you he'd arrived? quite so But not that he'd been recently posting correct -- see $poiler below -- and after you do, you might drop in on "he was extremely offended..." which Redwine is going after like a wolverine, so... Did you see on his profile that he'd recently logged in? Or recently registered? this

*******SPOILER*******

After what has come to be known as “The Reaping,” around 28 September 2013, the profiles of LTPF users who had registered after May 2007 inexplicably disappeared, along with their post counts, some well up in the thousands.
Users attempting to re-register with their old names found that their former username was already taken, although they couldn’t log in with it. Some chose altered, or temporary usernames. After a few days, users found they could re-register with their old profile, and some encountered curious legacies once they logged in, such as their profile image, and other bits from their former LTPF life.
Perhaps one such was Galfisk, whose puzzles and questions I have greatly enjoyed. I happened across his profile rather by accident, and saw that he had re-registered on 4 October 2013, but has yet to submit a post. I had thought to send him an email inquiring about his status, but wanted to wait until this puzzle was $poiled.
Hence: “Arrival [he re-registered], but did not appear [has yet to submit a post].
Perhaps I’ve accorded him some small LTPF honor, basing a puzzle upon him. At any rate, I hope he appears soon.
Thanks for playing.

Thanks for the puzzle :-) I happened to figure out the solution late at night and wanted to post it as soon as I get to work this morning. Congrats to Psydkik for getting it earlier :-)
And I miss Galfisk too.

Hi everyone!
Work has been busy (big restructuring), and I LTPF mostly at work. My interests and hobbies also often go in cycles, and LTPF is no exception. I'm flattered you'd make a puzzle about me, and I promise that I'll be back with new ones of my own some time in the future, when things quiet down. No worries!

Galfisk:
Thanks for showing up for a curtain call.
See how much the LTPF adores you?
And yes: hope you're still able to jump out of planes, and hope to see a puzzle from you soon. Your "Farmland foliage" was a great one.

This is only the 2nd LTPF puzzle (at least, since my joining the LTPF) about an LTPF member whose subject posted to the puzzle after the denouement, so far as I know. The other was actually a puzzle of mine, about the LTPF member Potato. In fact, "Do you want chips with that?" was posted almost three years ago, on October 28, 2010. There may be others I have forgotten, of course - I am a forgetful Kaylee kitteh, if I do not haz cheezburger.
