PostSubject: This hurts me   May 21st 2011, 12:40 pm

For some reason, my emotional attachment to this forum has intensified within the past few months as I've gone through old topics to try to gather information about what I was like, and I can say a huge wave of nostalgia has hit me like a ten ton brick. I miss what this place used to be, and I can't stand by to watch it die. This is why I keep posting topics so no one will just forget about this place. This place can show you what you were like in the past and give you a good idea of how this place thrived. I was fortunate enough to participate on these forums from the ages of 14-17. Those years are the years that a person changes the most in his lifetime, and I can tell you from looking back on old topics of mine that I have changed tremendously. I don't even recognize myself most of the time when I'm reading the topics. But I do remember the people that helped make this place what it was, and I do remember the people who have slowly disappeared into their own personal lives, outgrowing the ideal that they can post on this forum. It hurts me to have grown so close to many people and slowly watch them fade into oblivion. For me this is like receiving a great friendship but in the course of a few days it can die with either one of you taking a break from the internet or just forgetting about the Club Penguin phase. As most of you can probably tell, the Club Penguin online community has died at an exponential pace these past couple of years. WIth everyone's aspirations set on being a big star with a WordPress blog as little as 4 years ago, to people trying to hit it big on YouTube. I can luckily say I had a taste of both, but this is not what I miss. I miss coming on this forum the most. This forum was the most stable and fun part of my life while I was growing into my adulthood form. The attachment is clearly visible. I cannot just let this forum die as we are left in the dark with little to no information from Big Sb. I feel bad for the guy as I am tired of blaming him, but I think my attachment and care for the forum is unmatched by any you can find that ever roamed these boards. So, if you took the time to read all this, just know that I am not going to give up just yet. As long as there is hope, I will still be here fighting for you all.

Please read this BIG SB and let him make the difference. He's put more into it then any of us and still is.

I hope so too. Even if the forum dies, I would like to have some record of this place. It's really changed my opinions of people, and I doubt I would be where I am without it.

That's what we've been saying all along. But for some reason, we don't deserve to hear an explanation other than "I'm deathly afraid of COPPA."

I'm interested, but I also despise these topic mainly because you're edging yourself to this role. I'm sure, that without posting this, you would probably get the role anyway.

I am edging myself to the role. Mainly because no one else is stepping up and I'm trying to at least maintain some decent level of activity.

I'm sorry you feel that way. I'm more concerned right now about preserving this forum.

I didn't say I didn't support you, infact I fully support you. I wouldn't mind helping you.

Also, I've seen (for months) how long Big SB has stuffed up at Moderation. (Excuse the swears pl0x)

Big Sb is not doing anything not only because of the COPPA. Ever realize that he never did anything? While I was administrator, I would do the technical and community stuff while he did.... themes.

Haven't been on in a while, so don't think I'm a noob for asking. What's COPPA?

It's an American act which says that the information of under 18's residing in America needs to be treated in particular ways.

Is the only reason why Big Sb is an admin because he does themes?

That would explain a lot if it's true...

He also looks good in blue.
And Julie, you know it's true.

We need to come up with an ingenious plan to drive Big Sb away and allow Dirk to take over (I suggest pitchforks and torches). Heck, I bet if we made a thread, outright declared that we're going to steal his account and described how we'd do it in carefully written and illustrated steps, he wouldn't hear a thing about it all until it happens.

I think it's clear by now that he's not even willing to attempt to change this state of dormancy. If anything, he's one of the few reasons we got here in the first place. The stick-your-head-in-the-sand method he's been following for the past few months isn't helping restore this forum to the kind of place Dirk recalls.

Talk is cheap. Action--any action-- is the solution. I think we all owe it to ourselves to at least try to do something but whine and complain about how naughty Big Sb has been.
