I'd appreciate it if someone would add this post to Delphi and Pond Friends. I haven't joined either forum but am visiting them. I don't know if or when I will join either.

Sorry, Won't do it.

I remember too well what took place when BFG closed down CCC and what everyone went through then. I think those that are here should be happy at least BFG gave them some time this time to find new homes. Even a Mod has put a thread that has a link to 2 other Forums so far. BFG has also stated they were going to leave the Gaming Threads accessible to everyone to read. BFG didn't do that for all their customers that belonged to the community of CCC, they just kicked us to the curb and gave us no access to even read the threads that were built up over the years. We lost a lot of friends who have passed away since 2013 and it would have been nice to at least be and have been able to go and reminisce.

I truly believe BFG has made the dissension to close the Gaming Forums just like when they closed CCC and no Petition will change that.

Sorry to be so blunt but for some of us we went through this before, only this time BFG is being a bit more considerate to their Gaming Customers. How long that will last is yet to be seen and how long they will keep the Forum Games readable only time will tell. I don't see it being for long since we have been told "the forums are and have been unstable".

Good Luck to everyone wherever they may land

While those group sites are great for the social aspect and for people being able to stay connected to their gaming friends the thing that really bothers me is that the moderator's are not being paid for all the work they are doing, or at least I assume that is how it works, and I'm not saying that people should not volunteer if that is want they want to do so don't take this the wrong way and get offended but I don't like the idea that BF will be getting "free" promotion for their games in a forum that they are not supporting financially through our game purchases or membership dues, I would not do the work for them for free, it is a thought worth considering anyway.

I really don't think this petition will make any difference. has made their decision. We are being tossed out as unwanted refuse. I have lost all faith in concern for our needs.

I think it's only a matter of time before the read-only forum becomes a 404 error.

And Lambina, whoever you are, fortunately some of us love this community WE have built enough to work for free to save it.

Would you be willing to pay big fish a dollar to pay for a new forum. Hardware, software and people cost money.

I would be willing to pay BF an extra dollar for a forum but others would not. All companies have to pay big bucks for advertising but getting free promotion for games on another site is a big win win situation for BF after they have kicked us to the curb, that is all that I'm saying, and I am really sorry if that offends anybody.

BF has the money, know how and manpower to do what they want to
do. Another example of the loss of customer care and service. How
long before this game is unsupported like so many other good games
are/were. Delphi Forums has been around a really long time. (Like in
the C:/ days). It worked well for those of us who were addicted to TV
shows etc. I would go there, but should not have to.

That would not be necessary to post over at Pond Friends because we at the Pond Friends all know about this and one of the members from Pond Friends has started this sign up sheet

I'm not naive enough to think signing the Petition will matter, signing it was just my way to protest.

This forum, just as the game, wasn't perfect. Lord knows, I've had my knuckles rapped more than once and am still scratching my head over it. But, for the most part, I enjoyed it here.

I do wish everyone luck wherever they choose to go. Everyone has to do what they are most comfortable with, even if that means going nowhere.

Add me as well. I, too, have doubts this Petition will go up the chain from the BFG branch to the Deep Pockets Branch of the new Owners, Aristocrat Technologies, but ya never know.

In solidarity,

XXOO ~ Dhyani

P.S. Might want to add the word "Petition" to the Subject of this Thread.

The petition is located in another forum. Read the first post of this thread.

So that means new and current players will have no place to find friends if the forums close. Is there talk of ending Midnight Castle by BFG? I agree that BFG will not change their mind about the forums but other than a message announcing the end of the forums there is no solution for how players can find friends or help friends in the future.

A third of my friend's list is inactive as it is so how does one replace players if there is no place to find friends?

I hate change and taking away my fun like BFG did to my online multi-player casino years ago.
