COUNTDOWN to CLOSURE - what to do

[Post New]by Gen_1236 on Apr 28, 18 5:12 AM

So we have mere hours before the home we all loved ceases to be and many go their separate ways.

You should consider your last actions here.

Some are clearing out their PM boxes, as many private thoughts and emails were shared (along with the odd recipe).

I suggest you spend your last day here in your PM box. Save those precious exchanges, then DELETE. As you will have no control over the contents as of May 1st.

I wish everyone well in finding their new home.

I also hope that all new homes will link to each other. so no one will lose their friends.

I also wish the best for the long suffering moderators. I feel a poem is in order, but that already exists in the archives of this vibrant forum.

I am grateful for the lifetime friendships I have made here.

I am grateful to BFG for providing a forum for us all to cultivate those friendships.

I am grateful that the Mods let us run amok in The Special Room.

I am grateful for the time we all shared here.

The ending is sad. But the new beginnings bring hope and joy.

Change is hard. But once we step over that first hurdle, we can find a new home that may even be better than the last.

Love to you all,

Jenifer

Well said, Jenifer. Any many thanks to you for all your efforts in creating a new home for so many of us. You never forget your "first" and for me this was it.

Hear hear Jenifer

I had a habit of only deleting the most recent page of my message box when I ran out of room. By doing this, a lot of really old messages remained. I remember playing this game for just a few months when I posted for the first time. The game maxed out at level 20 back then (can you believe it ). My oldest post dates back to... july 21 2014! This means I've been playing MC for 4 years now and enjoying the forum and the friends I made... Ah, nostalgia. I bet a lot of other fishies are going through the same thing. Hang in there, you can always consult the "Oracle of Delphi" from now on

Farewell forum, gonna miss ya

I hope everyone finds a new place to call home.

It will not be the same, but change keeps the grey cells active.

No matter how sozzled they may be!!

Cheers!

Jenifer

Well... There is only one last possible thing that I could do.

Oh, how ironic if it got me banned!

So long Big Fish Forum
You had quite the quorum!
My lack of good decorum
Kicked me out the door'um

I came here very sad
My grieving was so bad
But then I was so glad
The friendships I could add!

I passed through my grief
I turned another leaf
For much to my relief
This place became a sheaf

A home that I could go
Where everyone would know
My name and say hello
And just go with my flow

In the painful gloom
I found a Special Room
And oh, how it did bloom!
And, not to mention BOOM!

There I made my friends
They number in the tens!
We set many trends
Through our story's bends

And after I departed,
Crushed and broken-hearted
A new forum I started.
Sorry, I just farted.

My friends did come along
To hear my sad swan song
Now we all hear the gong
The end is not too long

But we are left with us.
Our friendship is a truss
We ride the Delphi bus!
Where we are free to cuss.

I wish you all farewell.
Even those who gave me hell
I am happy where I dwell
Despite the funny smell

This new home is my gift
Though notice was so swift
My heart it so does lift
To take the second shift

I hereby return my official proclamation maracas to their respective HOSsessesss.

...ssessessses ?

Cheers,

Jenifer

I've reread my PMs, emptied my sent and inboxes, and shared my memory. Now it's time to read others memories and hope that a few friends who have been MIA since the announcement show up today.

I will lurk in some of the other forums and may some day join them.

And I will always miss the abominable things you did to try and tart up your huggie jacket!
But I live in hope?

I'll say my sad farewell now since I won't be on the computer when the forum closes. I really enjoyed reading all the threads, comments, and story lines. But we'll still meet in the castle and other forums. See you there.

Let's keep the good advice and nice thoughts & songs somewhere in the vicinity of the Front Page?

I know, call me naive, but worth a humble try. ?
