Re: Announcement: NR Forum Closing on Feb 22nd, 2008
Darn...I was already having an emo day and now I really feel brokenhearted. I'm listening to this pop crap music on the office radio and every time I hear a break up song come on I think of this. This ain't right... I'm not ready to say goodbye yet! There's so many of you that I haven't even gotten a chance to talk to yet - but still feel a strong connection with and intend to try and connect with at some point.
I'll post my thank you and goodbye later but holy moly... I can't believe it's really shutting down. Like Proto said, this is one place I actually felt like I belonged - and I haven't gotten that anywhere else. This is pretty much my favorite place in the world - what shall I do with myself without it? Anyway I've got a free domain name sitting in my hosting, and it would take me about a day to install a blank forum and configure it like NR... but I'm really considering doing it - just because as somebody else mentioned I think it's the group of people here that are so special. That's why going to a new place that already has other people there just doesn't seem the same.
Anyway I'm hitting you fools up either by blowing up all your email boxes, or SOMETHING!
If anyone is interested in just throwing up a new empty place for us to keep posting I'd be happy to set it up and would love to hear any suggestions for a domain name. Otherwise I was thinking just something close to noblerealms... or maybe noblerealms with a different .org extension. We could try doing it as a private forum so you have to be all registered and set up to do anything... or I don't know.... and I don't want to step on Tom's toes but I feel like this place has become such a part of my life/routine that I'm going to feel lost without it!
Okay... I'm being dramatic but I told ya'll it was already an emo day heh .
And I do have more to say... so I'll make a nice post later just had to whine about it on the few minutes of free time I've got over here.
Tom, Lyra, and everybody that posts here... Thank you all so much. This site changed so many things for me, and opened my eyes in so many ways. I can't imagine where I'd be right now if I never found you guys. Okay I don't have time for this crap atm... so I'll continue in awhile.
Oh and you guys are right about nothing lasting forever, and about sometimes change being a positive thing. Maybe it will motivate me to break away from the computer... and that sounds nice but extremely difficult. It's something I'm going to think about but I just don't feel like I have many other people or things in my life to replace you guys with. BOO! Change is scary for my stubborn taurean arse - I can't help mah self! /whine
