To think I found this site in November of 2010 while looking up Wolverine vs Predator (one of the back issues)... I'm going to miss this site. It's been my online hangout since I joined.

You know, for a place that has literally changed my life over the last decade and a half, I'm more than a little ashamed that I haven't spent more time with it in the last couple of years, and that I haven't spent more time on writing in general. That's life I suppose; you get caught up in work and home life and various distractions and before you know it, the years are speeding by... well, we've got a month left, right? I think that's enough time to put together one or two final send-offs. Guess I'd better get to writing...

Damn. This is crazy. EF has been apart of my routine for YEARS. It's helped so much with my writing... I don't even know what to say. What will I do???? Only if Writers Kingdom was still up and running *looks at SWM*, yes I see you Tarv!

 

Thanks for your time Serge/Fox!

 

I could bring back Writers Kingdom if people really want me to. Don't know how much I personally will participate though. 

 

Tarv, if you're willing to help me clean out the old topics and start fresh, select some new admin, we can get Haven back up and running and leave it to whoever we choose as admin.  Then we can leave.  :)

...I guess I could bring Haven back too. Although I'm less willing to bring Haven back than I am Writer's Kingdom. Writer's Kingdom was built with the purpose of creative writing in mind. Haven was built with the purpose of being a nintendo/pokemon fanbase that mimicked the CBUB that ultimately became a writing  a social discussion site. Besides, for both Haven and Writer's Kingdom it's been so long since I've used either it'd be a miracle if I remembered my password or anything like that. But meh, Haven was always more popular so we'll see.  Still though, I'm not sure I feel comfortable bringing either of them back right now. We'll talk more about it though. You know how to get a hold of me.

Thatnks guys for the kind words.  Appreciate it, and I'm glad that a lot of you got something out of the site during its run.

 

Me, I'm going to take the free hours I get back and finally start working on those novels I've been meaning to write all these years.  Romance novels, baby!  Hey, you gotta start somewhere.

This really is a let down, I like coming here. Nothing else would be the same as here. Is there not any other option? Maybe get someone to run the site for you? There enough users here to warrant something like this. I do ask you at least consider this. There might even be people who have the skill willing to volunteer there time. Or you could sell the site to someone else.  Just consider these. I don't want this site to die.

If I see something in the smut section of the book store by Foxy McSexyfingers, I'll grin from ear to ear.

Haven or Kingdom, either is fine with me.  I'll get with you.  Stay tuned folks for what was at least a brief EF side gig excursion to comeback.  Some of you remember it.  Tarv, at least we can clean it up and get it going again.  Hell, we can leave and go drink pina colada's in Florida after that.  Retirement baby!  I'll contact you.  See what the Main Character and Gravesy are planning on doing too.

My words still hold truth and I for one think I am making a valid point, why not do something like this and keep this site running?

One of those other sites would not do anything to replace the awesomeness that is CBUB.

Been on this site since 2009.

It does not have to go away.

Ditto, if/when any sort of official place gets set up as a successor site(whether peypey's or haven), drop us sneak peeks dammit! You got a built in fanbase right here!

 

Someone beat me to emotional MGS comment, but ya know what? What the hell..

That is a good effort but it can't replace the real CBUB, with the datebase, the match records and all that stuff. Things like that made the CBUB cool and made it stand out. If you need someone to run it for you, I'll run it! I will gladly volunteer my time.

Dude, nobody is trying to replace it. We are just creating somewhere that the community can go now. Where is your hole? GO GET IN YOUR HOLE!

Note: Tarv and I ARE working on Haven as we speak.

I am basically saying there is no real substitute for CBUB as it is unless its run the same way. If someone is willing to make a full CBUB clone I would be cool with that.  Everything the same, database, win-loss record and the same style as the current site. That is what made CBUB unique.
