Astra


Delphi.

I have a paid membership there - we might as well make use of it.

I've also created my own forum, know the tech guys well and have experience.

Cheers,

Jenifer

Anyway... continued...

The good thing about both these suggested sites is the folders.

So JUST friends, JUST tech issues, JUST side games and JUST the stories and absurdity.

I can create at least 15 folders, including one just for general discussion.

No more spankings for going off topic.

You can even have a folder designated for other games on ANY platform from ANY company.

All suggestions are welcome.

If this is to be your new home, then you should get to choose how it runs.

I'll just set it up and you could be sprucing up the place within a week.

Cheers,

Jenifer

Now,

Here comes the part that may well, ironically, get me banned from the forums.

The best thing for you all to do is have a look at my current working forum and see if you like the controls and how it is set out.

I cannot post a link, as that is against the rules.

Google: Delphi Forums, Coalition of the confused.

I'm right at the top.

Cheers,

Jenifer

Alrighty then!

There is a folder called "Hostess With The Mostess".

It is full of tips for navigating around Delphi, how to post and general stuff.

Post any questions there.

Meanwhile, I have a forum to create,

Cheers,

Jenifer

I just got permission from Murrumbidgee to post the link.

The forum is still under construction, but anyone is welcome to be a part of the process.

Try cutting and pasting the link into your browser

I'll also help you with the fonts, so you can see everything better.

Cheers,

I don't think any of this great planning will be relevant in the near future.

As sad as it is, I believe it's not just the forums that are closing down. I have a feeling Big Fish Games will soon be going in a very different direction.

Churchill Downs recently sold Big Fish Games to Aristocrat Technologies which is a social online casino company. There's no guarantee that Aristocrat will continue the format which has been Big Fish Games' model. It will likely just become a gambling site. Would they have paid $990 million for FTP games?

I hope I'm wrong but I think the writing is on the wall.

YOU ARE NOW BOOKMARKED I MADE IT. NOW FOR THE REST OF OUR FRIENDS. EVEN IF THEY CLOSE EVERYTHING WE CAN CONTINUE TO TALK TO FRIENDS WE HAVE MADE. MAYBE CONTINUE WITH SPECIAL ROOMS. WE SHOULD HAVE ENOUGH WILD THOUGHTS AND EXPERIENCES TO DO IT.

Interesting. But this is not about a game. It's about the friendships.

I've had them torn away, trust me - it hurts.

We're not trying to save BFG. We're trying to save a community.

I totally agree that there are some wonderful and helpful people here on the forum and I hope the community will continue elsewhere.

My concern is also about the game we have all invested so much time (and money) over the years. I would like the game to continue but chances are it will end. My other concern is that the Moderators were not entirely forthcoming with the very important information of the sale and what the future of the game is, announcing only the end of the forum.

Huh! First time I've heard of Churchill Downs selling BFG. Will check out Aristocrat Technologies. I think they make one of my favorite slot machines, Sun & Moon.

Hopefully we will get to play through another Fall Event. Halloween is my thang!

But if not, well, it's been fun playing Dark Manor and Midnight Castle and getting to know so many GREAT Friends here. Y'all have truly been my lifeline.

I'll need to be outside monitoring Dad as soon as the rain here stops in a couple of weeks, lest he skewer himself with a yard tool (again) And it will be just too hot to play on the 'puter during the day anyway. Don't want to fry yet another computer.

And we have a large 2 Day SteamPunk Festival here in a neighboring town in June, and am sooooo looking forward to making it out to at least ONE event. IF I can finish my costume(s) in time. Or next year. Or the next.

Thank you, Jenifer and everyone putting this new home for us together! Really looking forward to the rejoining THIS Great Community . . . see you in Delphi soon!

XXOO ~ Dhyani

it free to open the forum.. it's open to world at large it's available to every device..


we should get started and choose someone seriously reliable and dedicated to open it..

I just said in another thread .. that we need and deserve a new forum.. pond friends was perfect for when bigfish was alive and well..

I think we could transfer all those precious threads and their pages of conversation to the new forum that everyone keeps talking about and we need to name our forum start posting it's address getting the word out where to meet.......

I have plenty of advice for solutions


who ever is chosen to start up our new forum at ..https://www.proboards.com/create-free-forum


can go to Mail.com and open a email account for free naming that email address after the name of our forum.. so the email address is able to be posted out loud and clearly for folks to find us..

I think there might be a @game.com available... or @gaming.com the mail site has several categories to choose from ...

why not.. this way no ones personal and private life email address is out here in our treacherous world.. the new email would be used just for our new forum..so we ask for invites in ... etc etc etc..

Sorry you feel that way Mary.

In this day and age you need to feel somewhere you are safe.

The current Facebook drama does not help.

Delphi has been around since the last century. REALLY.

It is purely a message board forum for people to connect.

They are not billionaires. Just good people.

I wish you well, and you are always welcome.

Cheers,

Jenifer
