Which VN forums will survive on the other side or will we all get lumped into one generic "VN Refugee" board?

edit: And if this is really happening and you're not just trolling us, why not put a notification at the top?



These are what I recomended:
ACFriends
Darktide
Outpost
Ywain
DAoC General Board

Beib, Acery and Grim had some other ones.

I don't know what is moving.

Who has - to your knowledge - been banned the most times?


Sweet Mary or Alerious Shades from TD probably had the most evades ever.

Repeat bans on one account? Not sure.

Sweet Mary was on WE as well. I hear she was so annoying. I am not shocked they are closing down the boards. It's sad, but it looks like it maybe the beginning of the end.

If that happens it will be a sad day, although no one ever uses them really I can understand. This December will mark 10 years of these boards for me (and technically AC too, although I stopped about 6 months ago).

Wonder if they will do the same with AC? Condense the servers or just shut them down, will have to see. tongue

I read all 12 pages so far (lol sad I know) and he isnt sure yet, but it looks like all the worlds based forums are going bye bye, they may keep AC friends and outpost, but no confirmation yet. I just hope we all keep our hard earned post counts, although I doubt I will be back after this board is gone.

I think the account merges with the IGN one, although if you want to be safe maybe cut/paste them onto word or something, I would for anything you wouldn't want to lose. happy

To Everything, Turn, Turn, Turn...

To me this forum was a part of the game that it represented, a community extension. It was so incredibly busy back in the day that a post without new replies would only stay on the first page for a matter of minutes.

You were all part of that and I wanted to take this last time to thank you.
