Before it disappeared, I had looked into my inbox and it was empty
That is very strange...
Is it? You think someone deleted it?
I suppose it's possible there right at the end...Maybe, maybe not...
Actually it was the day before... there was a guy in the chatroom-Magnus I guess. I asked him if his messages were there. I do not remember what he answered though... LOL
Mine were deleted the day before too....I'd talked to Q and he said everything was being updated. I think he was just getting ready to shut the site down and started there. I don't see anything to suspicious there.
If so then ok... I sent a few messages to the friends of mine with my email but it was too late.
So Q basically lied to you. Instead of warning everyone , he lulled us into a false sense of security
I had even worse face expression
Don't know if this was for me.....but he didn't tell me when he had the chance.
That's what I am talking about. I did not know him at all but you kept in touch and talked from time to time
Not really I had just asked him where the private messages had gone......if he is a private person and he was fed up I wouldn't have told me either. I don't see it as odd.
Personally, I miss it, but I don't at the same time. I miss it because I was there for so long, and it held so many memories of amazing people, incredible debates, many laughs, many tears, and the best of my friends. But for me, it got too big.
There are people here now who I respect to the point I would illiterately fight for. Because they have earned that respect, more than that they deserve it. To be corny they have paid their dues ten times over. But when you get 50 new users a week who don't recognize this, well something is lost.
I guess it is selfish of me, I admit. but look at our new home here. It is a new beginning with the best people I have ever known. I agree you need new people, it makes it great fun. But 30,000 people???
But here I feel like part of a new colony on a new planet. You all know me, I have never asked or wanted nor been offered any special position on a forum. Never been a mod of an admin, and I honestly don't think I have the steady head it would take to be one. So it is not about authority, or power, or superiority or anything like that, it is about community.
I cant wait for new folks to build our new home into something great, but I selfishly hope we never end up with 30,000 members.
Seems to me like Q couldn't give a fuck about any of us, so we don't need him. We got this, we got each other.
A great deal of them were not 'real' people as such but spammers and bots accumulated over 15 years, many whose accounts never got to the stage of being verified by email...
As well as a number of people creating multi accounts for all different reasons... Like happens in most forums, many join but never post, quite a number claim they didn't receive a confirmation email and so rejoined again under another name and email... and then you get those who were were banned time and time again and kept on rejoining under another name and a new email address...
Y'know, I once messaged Q outright begging him to ban me, because I lacked the impulse control to stay away from the place and I was (still am) trying to get over a certain someone. Guy wouldn't do it.
haha... good one... I can understand why....
I remember a few years as a Mod someone kept being rather nasty and confrontational towards others including to the Mods and that person soon sent me a private message saying something like: "I suppose you're going to use your mod power of control over me and be a real dog and ban me now"...
I sent him back a reply saying something like, 'No way would I ever stoop down that low and give into your grovelling that I would give you the prividge and the sheer thill of being banned by me"...
Strange thing was, that he stayed on the forum for quite while and tempered down his attitude towards others...
I was super polite about the whole thing. It was a legitimate enquiry so I could move on, but here I remain in Limbo. Good thing I have you guys.
I guess a moral of sorts to your story is not to rely on anyone else other than on yourself as a way to move on... yes?
Well, yeah. I know that now. It was only yesterday this person and I finally agreed it wasn't meant to be and went our separate ways. I wish her well.
