Well, that doesn't sound good, at all.
I wish everyone here the best! Its been real
Well, I'm not going to create an account over at obscuregamers, but I will be monitoring it and I'll be sure to notify the copyright holders of any betas posted over there. For the lulz.
Hopefully Demon will melt down again and completely fuck the forums.
Keep an eye on ebay. I'm going to be listing my collection one piece at a time!
pstrick1 out. This is the end of the road for me.
Your tears are delicious.
I'm glad you understand
The owner just messaged me finally to let me know what he plans on doing with the site. I just posted about it if anyone wants to check it out here.
Aaand.I just witnessed the most idiotic post of 2019.
One takes away from you and you try to bite the other one stepping in place to save the day. You just said you will actually go on in all possible ways to hurt the community and what will be left of it.
Wow, congratulations, you won't be missed.
*GASP* Imagine if T2 were to find out!
What a shame that would be...
Feels crappy this place is going away, only lurked here but always read and loved the community, for better or worse.
$120 a month to run this site? That's nothing......and could be done for far cheaper, if you knew what you're doing. All it takes is opening donations or transferring the domain and forum database to another owner. Not that difficult....
Some people say "I understand, it's difficult to run a website like this without coders". What coding has even been done? It's a forum running XenForo, with a basic theme. The XenForo devs do all the coding and the community provides all the content. Backend of this site doesn't even have to require much. At peak this forum only gets about 400-500 users, with 250 on average.
I don't know this Kevin guy, but he definitely seems shady as others have said. Seems he is enjoying the fact that this forum is going to be deleted and wealth of information gone forever. All of which by the way was built by the community, not Kevin.
Wow. This is the first time in a long time I've seen the names of some of the old crew appear, let alone all talk in one thread.
Just like many of you I'm guilty of a bi-monthly lurk and little contribution over the past few years. After the massive drama that happened a few years back, the site just never seemed the same again and I just couldn't get back into the groove. The old faces were gone and many threads were ghost bumps or way OT.
So with all that in mind, maybe it is time to just let the place go, as long as the important stuff is archived, our passion can find a new home, the house is irrelevant, it's what you do inside that counts (I'm sure there's a better analogy but fuck it, it's late).
I've had some great times here over the past 13 years and met some cool people. xXHennersXx, Johnny (hope you're still enjoying the Seoul copy of GT4 Prologue!), Retro, Yakumo, Bad_84, wheela, drx, Graciano, Karsten and many others who's names escape me at the moment: It's been a blast and maybe I'll see you on OG if that's where we seem to be going.
And to Kev (you let me on the site back in the vetting days, after I was certain I'd found a copy of RE:1.5 (how naive I was))...I may not have agreed with some of the decisions you made, and if I'm honest some things seemed as sketchy as fuck, but that's irrelevant as in the grand scheme of things, you started, maintained and orchestrated the site, and picked an awesome set of mods to help you along the way.
Even though it lost its way in the end, if you had chosen another path and not done so, I'd have missed out on some happy memories and if it hadn't been for the support from some people on here I may have lost my own way in life some time ago.
So cheers and take care.
If you thought he was idiotic enough getting pissed at those trying to fix kev's neglect of the community, downtime, absence, total lack of requested feature and presence, questionable decisions, fundraisers for extremely costy server, etc etc, think again and check this:
Yo Twimfy, been ages
WTF is this, we can do a fundraiser and collect the money within a day I think =(
I don't feel like sponsoring Kevin's personal life anymore.
Want me to post that photo of your warrant? Lel.
