Retiring

Recommended Posts

Hey all.

 

So, it's been 15 years working on this website.  Online since the Internet was young in 1997, it's been a good run with the electricferret, but all things must come to an end.  I am retiring from working on the existing interactive website areas of electricferret. 

 

Fifteen years is a loooong time folks, and I cannot do this anymore.  The personal time requirements needed to administrate, code, support and generally maintain the website are more than I can continue to expend.  And, as you know, this entire website is a completely non-profit endeavor for me, so besides the time and work that goes into its maintenance and production on my personal off hours, it is also an ongoing personal financial drain to me.

 

The interactive portions of the website will be closing down.  Here's the schedule.

 

Now - New registrations closed

 

by Aug 24th-25th - all CBUB / FPL functions closed down (matches, character creator, etc.)

 

The Forums - I do want you guys to be able to communicate and what not so I will close that out last.  

 

The Electricferret domain will continue to exist and serve Non Interactive content.  Things like the CBUB back issues and the FPL Character Database.  Basically, the existing things which do not require me to deal with the Login, Authentication and Maintenance of users or put any additional time or code into the website.  I have a lease on this server for the next 10 months, so the stuff will be up at least that long for your reference.

 

Thanks all.  Peace

-serge

What Tarv said...wait, Tarv? HAI TARV!

 

But yes, it's been a hell of a run for my 5+ years. Thanks for all of it.

The Ferret's been my online home since 1998. I've made quite a few good friends through this place.

 

So yeah, Thanks.

 

As for the boards, I'm gonna look into seeing what I need to do to host some over at my website. The fight-making and character-making stuff won't be there, but people'll be able to keep in touch.

CBUB had a great run. Thanks for the great site. I just realized I have been here for years now. I enjoyed my time here.

Ah mannnnnnnnnnnnn, 

 

Still, it was all good times. The FPL helped hone me as a writer, and I met a lot of cool people. I'm sad to see it go.  Goodbye to all y'all, though I should probably do more personal goodbyes to some of you guys.

First off, Hi Nova. 

 

Also, since everybody else is doing it... 

 

Was active around the site from 2007-2011 in various capacities. Had a lot of fun during my peak years, received some great advice, and most importantly made some fantastic friends. 

 

That'll do Ferret. That'll do.

Wow, ElectricFerret in one way or another has been a place for me to hang out on the internet for 6-7 years now. I loved this place and it helped me with my writing a lot. This place got me a lot of As and I met a lot of grand people here. I hope Khazan continues on in one way or another, even without the Fight SetUps and the MatchUps, Khazan was all about a bunch of friends getting together to tell stories. 

 

Perhaps we should make an email address thread for people to keep in touch?

Mmhmm: Ima try and not leave with regrets of stuff I shoulda done. SO much for all the time in the world :P. Who knows where all the stuff will go from there though: I'm sure some nut will do something to honor what's come before elsewhere...may be me but who knows! Regardless it's been a good 5 or so years, give or take a few months before this very forum got remodeled. Pretty much ox you have no idea how much I(possibly a few others) owe you. So just think of a really big number and keep adding, I hope you do some awesome ok? Cause you deserve it.

 

@Pseudo- Yeah, even if FPL will be closing it's doors I think there' other ways to closure to those threads and such. Landon's idea sund sinteresting and email to see if anybody can whip up something of a successor would be awesome as a community. Still, I learned a lot from a lot of guys and I'm happy for that much. I certainly don't want to just move on from you guys if you don't plan to though. I'm still technically on-call for internet life at Treach's fiction whim if he ever needs that called in.

 

PPS: HI TARViS!

How ya been Tarv? Good I hope.

 

Also, could use some more members on Facebook...or could connect via Twitter, or email as Pseudo suggested. And then all the 3 or 4 various offshoots of EF...possibilities.

Tis sad, a few of us have been here HELLA long. But in the end, I wanna say, thank you very much. There ain't many websites that can produce sentimental value, but you've succeeded with EF.

It is clear what this means. We need to find a new place and a way to identify CBUBers. Anyone have other good sites with comics/fanfiction and stuff?

Yeah, been around since 1999.

Fox, will any older version of the FPL architecture be available?  Even, like, the 2002 version would be totally awesome, but I don't know if you have copies of any of that stuff.

What's said is said. Honestly it's been about five more years than I expected, in the long run. You've done a great job here, Serge. Good luck and take care.

 

Also the MG forums will have an essay form that must be passed with an above average grade in order to successfully apply for membership.

Well then, that's it...

I know it is time, but to say it was in fact unexpected is quite an understatment.

Before I go on, I'll preference this by addressing you serge.

To sum up my feelings in to two words, "Thank you". Thank you for all the friends you've allowed me to meet, thank you for giving me the oppurtunity to test and improve my skills and abilites, and thank you for allowing us all to gather here, unabriged of our homeland, race, religion, etc., just to have fun together as one community. :)

Now onto the other matters, as sad as this is for me to admit, and certainly as surprising as this is as well, the recent changes have broken my spirit, and thus, I am forced to intiate my own leave.

Whether this will effect ya'll harshly, remains to be seen.

Put frankly, I remember Nova saying how he's hypothetically feel if I left, well think it over now Bozo!

To those of you within the Facebook group, stay online and visit frequently, I'd love to talk to ya'll anytime of day/night. :)

Except 1-6 a.m. you weirdos. :angry:

To those not in Facebook yet, here's your chance, just visit my page on Facebook, https://www.facebook.com/andrew.patenaude.9 < ask for a friend request, and I'll let you in.

From now on though, as tough as it is to say, especially more so to you which I don't have connections with, this is good bye.

I have been on this site since 2005 and Im sad to see it go.  Things were beginning to get interesting with the fantasy league and thought it could be a saving grace.  I have enjoyed my time here under various guises through the years.  As things have gone by I have had confrontations with some and formed online friendships with others.  I hope something can be done to keep us all together and debating about the characters that we love and enjoy reading about.  To all good wishes. (Yes, even you force echo)  Thanks for the good run Fox!

 

xLEGACYx (AKA Falcon, AKA Red Blue Blur, AKA Kain 59)  :P

 

PS:  I hope to see you all on the facebook group and us find a way to resurrect this site in another form giving credit to Serge and providing a home for us and others who enjoy all things comics or fantasy.

I first came upon this site when I was a pre-teen and it took me until I was 21 to finally get involved. As sad as I am to see it go away I happy that I got a chance to be a part of it before came to an end. Serge, thank you for keeping the electricferret alive as long as you did, one can only imagine the sacrifices you made to keep this place up and running for as long as you did.

To all the people I've met here,I'll see you in the next incarnation of Khazan.

 

Hopefully someone (or maybe a group of us) will be inspired to revive Khazan in the future be it through a new website or wordpress or some kind of cyber-wizardry.

 

Well, goodnight EF. I'm going to crawl under my bed in the fetal position now.

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 found this site back in 2005 with a lot of people evidently when I was messing around on the High School computers setting up my first email account (that I'm still using) and saw it referenced on My Yahoo.  I followed it and saw the site for the old school Sportscasts.  

 

I was hooked when it opened up to the public to make their own fights.  

 

I was here for the Jarethan overthrow of Callisto.  The fun we had, the friends made.  Friends lost and gone.  God this is a shock to the system.  I cannot handle the waves of nostalgia coming at me.  And yes, I know what I just did, that is not a joke about my name.

 

Well, we do have the Facebook group that's open.  I'm glad I started saving my better matches.  It's gonna be a shame.  The honest responses to the writing here, while I stopped getting it, made me grow faster, and I'm happy I was here for as long as it was.

 

Thank you Serge/FoxFingers.  May a chariot of pegasi escort thy site to a good resting place.
