This post started as a reply to the other shut down thread. But it got long, so I figured I'd make a new thread.
So if PD shut down sometime in the next year or even 3 or so, is that it? are we done? Never to post together again. I mean I guess I know it will happen eventually but do we have to make it so easy for us to be broken up and separated? Are we simply going to try to log on one day, and then not be able to for a month straight and then walk away? A few of us have each other on some other social media and other contacts, but to me it's not the same. That's not how our bonds are tied, we're not meant Facebook messagw, text, etc, it simply doesn't feel as right as posting on a forum together.
Honestly if so, I might be a little heart broken, like really heart broken. A lot of you guys are some of my longest known friends that I still somewhat talk to. My friends I had Irl when we posted together years ago, I have no contact with. And I'd really hate to see the same thing happen with you guys. There's already a hand full of members I have already lost contact with that I wish I wouldn't have.
Many different forums have housed us and then fell into the cracks, hell this one has had its moments in this the grave. And some how after all that here we are. And I may be the only one that feels this way about this, but I hope not. I hope you all have some honour amoung ourselfs to want to find another place after this one has left us too.
So I guess what am saying is, what are we going to do? Ride it out tell the very end and find a new place to latch onto in the aftermath? Or we going to jump ship before and try and start our own place? Or are we going to hold onto our pipe dream of this place being around forever, and walk away when it's over?
