I have just woken up after a very short sleep and disturbed night.
I suspect that I am not alone in this!
I'm glad you are thinking positively Becky and Jenny BUT!

I have copied the first five pages of the Special Room to Word and am on page 53 in that document.
To date 15,000 words.
We at present have 88 pages in our thread!!!!

But if you both say 'go for it' I will "burn the midnight oil"!

GO FOR IT. IF WE GET A NEW HOME WE WILL NEED IT. AND THERE ARE THOSE WHO HAVE NOT READ THE THREAD YET. OF COURSE WITHOUT THE FORUM THE NEWBIES WILL NEVER KNOW WHERE WE ARE. UNLESS SOMEONE POST WHERE WE HAVE GONE. HATE TO THINK OF ALL THE NEWBIES WITH NOWHERE TO GO FOR HELP.

JUST THE WORDS WE HAVE LEFT BEHIND.

It is all forums that will be closed down, not just MC

I am SHOCKED!! I just entered the forum to find it's closing down! This is a great place to get friends and information as well as being very supportive of other players. Where do we go to get all that now? I will continue to play MC but it will have lost some of its appeal. I am very upset.

I still say BOYCOTT!

If our segment of users are not sufficient to make a difference...well. Whatever.

The CEO and GM and other managers at Big Fish see us as a commodity, not as a community.

Well, I have no longer any loyalty to them.

Try to meet PTG in the middle

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.

I'm a senior and last year I was going to quite the Midnight Castle and than I found the forum it has been a God sent,if I have a problem everyone was so helpful. I will be lost without the forum especially because I don't do Facebook and won't be able to communicate with all the new friends, it really made the games so enjoyable everyday I look forward to communicating and getting advice and help with the game. I just got my neighbor to start the Midnight Castle games she loves it and the forum is so helpful to her she will be devastated when I tell her there will be no forum. I AM SO UPSET I must own at least a hundred Big Fish games if they stop the forum I will not enjoy playing the game and I will NEVER purchase another game from Big Fish. There are other companies out there I'm sure they would appreciate my business.///////

"sob" It's quite tattered and torn now, soaked with an ocean of tears. Please PM me if I can help in any way. I used to be pretty comp-literate and may still retain some of it, esp. Word & Excel...

Oh!!! I am speechless (or almost)...

A read-only forum??? That made me "smile". This is surely not my definition of a forum.

And I am thinking about MC but also the thousand "normal" games I own for which I won't have any place to go to in case I am stuck or have a question (as if Customer Support could help, no, seriously...).

I am really shocked by this decision and shall surely miss this community. Hopefully we shall find a new home.

After DM closing down a few weeks ago, this is another heartbreaking announcement...

I'll try to PM friends about my FB account (though I don't use it much) and my personal email address. Don't hesitate to PM me in case you want to get in touch!!

Grmbl...

Hi Jennifer, good to see you again.. .... Joined your M.C. forum on delphi ... Leaving this morning for meetings in Oklahoma - course guy from Tulsa to be there tomorrow morning to talk elements.... Meeting with members of the Youth Advisory Board and all the teachers at the end of the month... non-profit still on track, taking it one baby step at a time...

BFG forums closing reminds me of the dev.s statement at the end of the special events: All good things must come to an end..

I see the biggest "nightmare" being, if you lose your game, how do you tell everyone you've lost your game and that you have a new ID?.... not everyone came to this forum in the first place...

Kind of "in shock" myself .... and being out of touch for the next several days... naturally....SIGH...

Hi Susie,

Please say you'll join us in the new MC forum Jenifer set up?!

I came to the forum to post that I have reached M5 coins and read all this. Will I need that many coins now?

I am so sad. I own hundreds of BFG games that I have paid for. I have been a customer since 2005 and only play MC as a FTP game. Will I be able to reload those games again?

Some of the puzzles in the bought games are tricky; I needed help with them, so came to the forum. Certain I will not be buying those sorts of game again.

Might even go and find a different game site.

I have read all the possible alternative but for me I do not have a clue what is being said. Really low tech. Am not on Facebook and never will be.

Hi all,

One of the threads I'm concerned about needing to get transferred to the new MC forum Jenifer set up is the Midnight Call to Arms: Surviving the Chaos. There are many who wish to continue posting to that story and I know it's especially dear to Randy's heart!

The thing is, it's HUGE and will take I don't know how long to copy it over, or the best way to do so. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

I'm sure Becky is taking care of the New Strategy Guide, and not sure who's doing what for other threads like the achievements and such, so I'm hoping folks will weigh in here about various threads that should be dealt with.

Thanks,
Ada

I'm low tech as well, so if I can do this you can too. Just click on the new MC forum link Jenifer provided here in an earlier post, sign up with your email address and use your current game name. You'll see how easy it is to still be part of everything there.
