(The Mods can move this if they see fit...I just didn't know where else to put it!)

For mine... I just noticed that the one thread the reads "Show off your talent" is cut off at an awkward point on the front page... it looks like it says, "Show off your ta~ta's"

Laughing

I lol'ed. Alot.

I talked to endless and he said that cyn found that you can go in and change a post you have already made. I changed my last post in "where do we go from here"

Seems GB was closed 10 days early.

Makes me a little sad. There was a lot of people that I wanted to swap email addresses with, or something. I guess I'll just have to hope that they surface on one of these other forums...

Why is it that I do my best thinking right before I go to bed, but just to loose it when I wake up?

How very rude. He didn't even give us until August knowing what the forum meant to everyone.

Given the loyal core of members that GB had, it is very disappointing that they couldn't even be bothered to wind down the forum decently.

And it appears the last-post honors go to Madelchai. Bittersweet congratulations, wherever he took off to.

I think our thanks should go to Madelchai for his efforts on our behalf. Do bear in mind that Endless and I were both firmly entrenched in GB, and Madelchai had only been a member for a few weeks, which may well have influenced people's choices.

I know he has signed up on Endless's forum, but I don't know how active he has been there.

He has a few posts on endless's. He may not be too active right now because he is trying to get his package from cryoflesh back (it was stolen).

Hi Gloomth, glad to have you aboard.
Very Happy

I am frankly rather p***ed off at GB for locking their boards like this; in fact the way they have handled the closure of the boards altogether.

It would not have hurt them one iota to have made a proper announcement and given us all enough warning to plan an 'orderly evacuation' rather than the confused mess that we have actually ended up with.

However, there's no use crying over spilt milk. We'll just have to make the best of the situation.

Thank you! I appreciate that! Smile

Ive come to really enjoy the people Ive met on the GB boards and it was really disappointing to find out the forums were closing.

Why didnt they hire regulars from the boards to run them or something?
Or transfer all the forums to another domain so its off their servers and have someone run them???

Weird weird.
I suppose if they cant run it, they just cant. *shrug*

Well it doesn't take THAT much work to run something like a forum. Not once its up and running as the GB was.

BUT as has been pointed out by parish before. GB is a business. If the Forum wasnt generating subscriptions for GB then why have it using the mags resources. I think GB has made there point clear that its money over community. So they will not get my money but i still have the community. There loss.

I think thats something wonderful about the Gothic "subculture" there is a sense of community there in some ways. Goths have long used the internet and forums to find one another and reach out.
Especially if you were from some pissant rural area like I was, waiting aeons for the old text only sites to come up through my modem. Smile
Goths seem to want their magazines, stores, music to support and participate in the community and help solidify and encourage the growth of the "subculture" (icky word). But maybe Im idealistic?

I dont see why a community WOULDNT be important to a magazine. What a great resource as far as having more input on what your reader's want, what theyre into right now, what theyre shopping for etc. Invaluable information.
Yes its a small and select cross section but there are always new members, and advertised properly it would be a great way to create brand recognition and a more loyal and involved following.

But Im weird. Razz

Sadly in my opinion GB has turned into nothing but a fashion rag. Pushing mostly clothing that only the most well off could afford. I would have loved to have seen more indie merchandise showcased in the mag. But then I wasn't running it. Oh well they wont be getting any of my money thats for sure.
