I will use that account but don't expect another 71 matches.

 

It's okay, I don't.

I put up an FPL character and have two CBUB submissions awaiting images on the off chance FoxFingers decides to sell the site rather than close it down. Not counting on it to happen but, you know, just in case. This is hardly the first CBUB/Ferret retirement.

 

True, I could start an El Santo vs Living Laser topic anywhere, add an elaborate explanation as to how they met with lots of refrences to the ridiculousness of the whole thing, without putting up three links, the owner's website and then manipulating an image in word to fit 200X200p but it just would not be the same elsewhere. No ranking, no database to tellpeople it happened years down the line, no internal arguments over whether its worth spending the points on over Hulk Hogan vs Godzilla, no internally debating on wether Living Laser is worth uploading before other things in the database like the planet of Eternia have been used yet and no user based conditioned to appreciate the whole thing.

 

The new site is full of electric ferret goers but new users will not know why we are nostologic for anything Electric Ferret, with the possible exception of the back issues, when the site proper most likely goes for good.

No offense to this, but I don't know how much I like another site callig itself the Electric Ferret if it is not the Electric Ferret. Especially porting all the topics verbatim. It's a little slap in the face to me. I'm cool with spin offs, (Tarvius and I are creating a spin off site) but Electric Ferret has history and I don't know what's going to go down on your site and I'm not sure I like seeing Electric Ferret tied to it.

That's just me, but I really don't like the direct port approach. Borderline offensive.

 

This. I agree with wholeheartedly.

That's part of the "CBUBers charging mindlessly forward" thing.

 

It doesn't require much thought, to realize that while starting a replacement/continuation site is a good idea, actually using/copying the name is a bad one(especially if Serge wasn't consulted about it first).

 

It also doesn't take much thought to think of different, yet similar, names.

Now we're mindlessly charging forward to find a new name.

Good idea. Is that the only spin-off site? Or are the CBUBers going to pop up fifty alternative sites? I keep hearing people saying they are going to start their own sites. FPL and CBUB finally splitting forever... Doesn't surprise me.

Yes and no. They have different sections on the site, but it's not like the people are completely separate.

It's never mattered from what I have seen since most FPL people stay in that section and CBUB in their part. The exception being people interested in both.

Guys, I have a great idea. Let's stick true to the comic book roots and after this site goes down the new "CBUB site" will have nothing but a shitton of continuity errors. Who's Serge? I don't know. Did the CBUB start as a website or as some book from the 1800's? Probably the latter. WHO KNOWS!?

Oh look someone changed the title?  Imagine that.  Oh and by the way FPL is kicking up their own site for the real movers and shakers.

I wanna be a part of that new FPL. Maybe I'll actually write a thing or two after college, use that English Writing minor and stuff.

Bumping for those still not in the know about this. Check the starting post for the new site. It's also possible that there may be some action here:
