    i don't even know if it's happening yet
    hopefully it will
    all content is being moved, right?
    so posts will stay
    you can't have the posts without the posters
    the levelling and things might be different but like jay said it's the same thing just in a different place

    Just make sure whatever software you use can import Xenforo. I'd personally recommend Xenforo, but it's not free.

    I really don't agree with just focusing on your main projects as a forum. I feel that you're basically committing community suicide.

    I guess giving us an out was the least you could do, and I have no choice but to take that out. I will still support the projects, but I feel there will be nothing left to return to once all of this is done.

    what made you think that it would be a good idea to mold a community into what it's not?

    As Jay isn't active in the community, I think prolicide is more accurate, with the specific goal of chronocide-icide. :axe:

    ren has made a facebook group so a new forum may not be necessary unless people don't want facebook
    the group is secret, of course

    i really would prefer a forum though
    among other things it means i don't need to hide my name

    an alternative forum would be the better choice. facebook is - to use the most appropriate description - a piece of shit.

    Well, that's a good way to shut down an entire community.
    I get your flow and all, that you want to take your site in your own direction. But the way you chose to handle it is... extreme, to say the least.

    I'm sure you're fully aware of how many people don't agree with this change and are going to be leaving because of this. You've stated yourself that you just aren't interested in it, despite the arguments people have posed against you.

    A better way to have handled this was made a separate site, watched how that went, and then as time passed, shut this one down if you had success or hand it off to someone else. If you really thought it was best to force it, though, then you're the one in power and I guess we can't really argue with that.


    It's just a shame that the community was starting to pick up in activity over the past few days, and the change came without much warning. You should've let us know a lot farther in advance instead of randomly deciding you're going to drop it all.
    You weren't really giving us much to have relevance to, and that's why the community went in the direction it did. Hell, I don't even feel like anything needed to be changed, aside from you giving us more updates. If that had been the case then a massive dropping of the site's content would've been entirely unnecessary.


    Best of luck to you with your new direction, I guess.
    I personally don't see myself being a part of it, but hey, we'll see how it goes.

    does all forums unrelated to ER include all the unrelated creative projects and topical discussions aswell? seems like a lot of the stuff in there even though unrelated is not entirely irrelevant.

    "closing all forums unrelated to ER" means literally leaving two subforums that basically nobody cares about.
