RE: Why TG is here and why TG may close.
Out of curiosity:
I obviously haven't been here for nearly as long as you guys, but as I've browsed these forums, I see literally nothing wrong. I see peaceful arguments and ideas. This is one of the friendliest forums I've ever been to.
The only 'impending doom' I can see here is this forum ending up like the Bob the Pleo forums and AIBOLIfe- eventually everyone will just dissapear. I suppose you could say all forums like this will evenually become 'Ghost Towns' with a few remaining members.
Obviously I can not convey what TG used to be like, as I was never here before. But what do you mean by 'not like it used to be?'
I think this term has been thrown around a bit too loosley.

Also- has the 'private site' thing already been introduced?

There were moments of drama, but I think Euipoi only came around the site when summoned because of drama, and had a bit of a skewed view of how things were going. Obviously there isn't any drama now.

Everyone has a different take on what old TG was like, but honestly, it was similar to how things are now, albeit with more maturity (because really young members weren't so commonplace like they are now).

The private site thing hasn't been introduced, and currently I think that's probably for the best.

Most likely. Thanks for clearing that up.

RE: Why TG is here and why TG may close.
This thread is very old, and I'm sorry for resurrecting it...but the forum isn't going to be taken down anytime soon is it? I sort of stumbled across this while looking at Euipoi's posts (I was curious where she was,) so...I mean I'd hate to see this place close down because it's such a huge breath of fresh air compared to other forums. Sad

TG is here to stay.

Though your continued aversion to drama is much appreciated.

RE: Why TG is here and why TG may close.
From both of the forum's co-owners, TG is here to stay. Smile

This old thread could essentially be archived but it reflects a time when we were going through some "growing pains", if you will, and I think it's important to leave up to reflect on those times, not only to see how far we've come, but to reference our past mistakes in going forward.

I don't think you should close it. Then I would actually be alone if this site were to shut down. I really like it here.

I wouldn't worry.

TG isn't a door you can close. It's more like a hole you accidentally fall down.
You could put a door on that hole, but the community would just dig its way into a new hole and be the same thing under another name. TG is very much developed by its members. And there are no competition sites, only other holes, rooms shared or not shared. Back in the day we used to join each others' forums but these days social networking and media has pulled more extraverted people especially away from forums and BBS.

It's unlikely to happen and many of us have resources.

RE: Why TG is here and why TG may close.
@DustWolf and myself have decided to sell the site, due to it's insanely high SEO rating, to these bird people.

While we regret this decision, the offer they made us was simply too lucrative to refuse.

We'll send everyone a free t-shirt.

Thanks for everything <3
