    Because, we are moving forward, and not on insecure forum software.

    It is secure if you know what you are doing...

    I know that some features are a bit dated, but XenForo is overpriced in my opinion...

    phpBB is not secure.
    You are of course free to do as you wish with your own money and server space.

    Yeah, this is where basic reading comprehension comes in handy. Those are all literally for version 1.5 and third party plugins. phpBB is not secure, even in the latest versions. Not to mention it's cheap, shitty software. Sorry.

    The main point of having an archive and a separate (yet, fairly active) new forum is to mark the ending of AG and the start of a new era. Having 1000's of "AG Replacements" will do more to fracture the community than actually help it, and is in no way the correct path to take.

    Again, it is your money, bandwith and server space, but I personally have no use for it, especially as the AG archive from OG will be fully searchable, etc.

    Just seems a bit pointless.

    It is open source software. It's open to use without this licensing BS.... but thats just my opinion.

    So long and thanks for all the protos, knowledge, and fascinating discussions.

    This website was my introduction to the world of tinkering and programming. It had an important impact on my education and hobbies, and I'll forever be grateful for it.

    Godspeed my friends, Godspeed.

    I walk a lonely road
    The only one that I have ever known
    Don't know where it goes
    But it's only me, and I walk alone

    I walk this empty street
    On the boulevard of broken dreams
    Where the city sleeps
    And I'm the only one, and I walk alone

    I walk alone, I walk alone
    I walk alone and I walk a

    My shadow's the only one that walks beside me
    My shallow heart's the only thing that's beating
    Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
    Till then I walk alone

    Ah ah ah ah ah
    Ah ah ah ah ah

    I'm walking down the line
    That divides me somewhere in my mind
    On the border line of the edge
    And where I walk alone

    Read between the lines
    What's fucked up and every thing's all right
    Check my vital signs to know I'm still alive
    And I walk alone

    I walk alone, I walk alone
    I walk alone and I walk a

    My shadow's the only one that walks beside me
    My shallow heart's the only thing that's beating
    Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
    Till then I walk alone

    Ah ah ah ah ah
    Ah ah ah ah ah

    I walk alone, I walk a

    I walk this empty street
    On the boulevard of broken dreams
    Where the city sleeps
    And I'm the only one, and I walk a

    My shadow's the only one that walks beside me
    My shallow heart's the only thing that's beating
    Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
    Till then I walk alone

    Final post time. I wouldn't be where I am today, or know half of the things I know, if it weren't for all of the users of this forum. Hope to see you all on the other side.

    So long, and thanks for all the fish...

    My final post and goodbye to AG...

    "Through early morning fog I see
    Visions of the things to be
    The pains that are withheld for me
    I realize and I can see

    That suicide is painless
    It brings on many changes
    And I can take or leave it if I please

    The game of life is hard to play
    I'm gonna lose it anyway
    The losing card I'll someday lay
    So this is all I have to say

    Suicide is painless (suicide)
    It brings on many changes (changes)
    And I can take or leave it if I please

    The sword of time will pierce our skins
    It doesn't hurt when it begins
    But as it works its way on in
    The pain grows stronger
    Watch it grin

    Suicide is painless
    It brings on many changes
    And I can take or leave it if I please

    A brave man once requested me
    To answer questions that are key
    Is it to be or not to be
    And I replied oh why ask me?

    Suicide is painless
    It brings on many changes
    And I can take or leave it if I please

    And you can do the same thing if you please."

    ...RIP AG...

    Bye all thanks for the ride, have had some good help from the users of this site.

    Who is @Tongara been here for 10 years and only has 59 posts and 90% of those have been over the last few days. You come across as the type of person that people tried to avoid in this forum.

    To be honest, I've been around for my fair share of time and I don't recognize/know any of these people. Regardless of your date of registration, if you don't post/contribute to the community it doesn't matter.

    lol. I'm sorry, this just got to me. You've only got 193 msgs and have been here since 2013. I don't get what this needless attack is for? Tongara is a Clockwork Knight fan who has run the only fansite for it and has an extensive Youtube channel for the series. Still hoping we someday see early protos for it someday. Let's not judge people just based on their post counts, surely anyone on OG is gonna look like a newbie with how little posts people must have still.

    I hope this sort of attitude doesn't leak on OG :rolleyes:

    Anyway, I see the site closing is drawing nearer here. I'm in a "post whatever, who cares" mood, so...

    -I wish we had a Conker 64 proto released here after all these years. Sucks since I'm pretty sure deals for that happened in PMs here.
    -Speaking of PMs, imagine the vast history of backstabbing and drama in PMs revolving around RE1.5. I always assumed this site was a hotbed for that back in the day.
    -I wonder what Kevin had we'll never see. There was some Acclaim Soccer game for 64DD I think? Well, that's lost to time now I guess.
    Speaking of which, those Acclaim tapes... That's a damn shame. Whole company's archives on tape, gone...
    -............ In any case, let's just see more protos. Honestly, what more did we come to this site for for all these years? Protos :D

    Yeah, that's it.
