I TOLD you. I had a party that got over like, an hour ago. So don't bust on me for changing my mind. You won't hate me after you see my music video on the General Board.

This is going to be my last post probably. Maybe, I dunno. Depends on TTE and whatever he has in store.

Most of you probably don't even recognize me, let alone know who I am. But I don't care.

SFA became more and more moronic, every few visits I made. Between people pretending they were VU officials (YES PRETENDING. You'd have to be blind not to recognize it), and people arguing about VU/Insomniac and people speaking in chatspeak, and people being all pompous and yippy-skippy about how great their characters are and how VU will surely want to include them in some movie/game/whatever, and a million other things, it's all become full of crap.

Look at us!! We're on a forum that was one full of Crusaders ready to fight negativity in the fandom. Now we're divided by hatred: hatred for one another, hatred for VU or whoever, and hatred of what certain people do. AND I'M SICK OF IT. That's why I haven't posted. I've been so filled with anxiety and stress because of the fact that certain people on this board have driven me away from posting with a ten-foot boomstick, AND THEY DIDN'T EVEN REALIZED IT. When your annoyance is that repellant, you know there's something wrong, especially because of the fact that you don't even notice it. And that is why I stopped posting.

Dn't get me wrong. I love SFA. I love the people here, or at least the friendly ones. But I can't stand it anymore. Sometimes I just miss it when there were like, 40 of us. And for those few, never forget, please. And Josh, if you ever do decide to do something more with this Writerforsaken board, or anything else involving forums, please ask. I would love to.

And I guess, with going along with what everyone else has been saying, the Spyro fan has died in me. How much fanart have I drawn? None. ACID Reign was discontinued for the above reasons. And I feel so free and light because of it. Maybe that's how some of us would feel if SFA was gone...but it did bring us together, even if it has to end like this.

Yyyyep, like the other Admins, this'll be my last post here too...only time I'll even come around here is to PM chat with Terror (my bestfriend)

But, really, I know I won't be missed much. I haven't been of usefulness with the power I had around here. The GamerNews section was fun while it lasted...But now, I hardly updated it anymore. No new games to talk about...even so, they'd only be games that I'M interested in, and that isn't fair at all.

And basically, only time I ever helped was the time that DIANE came around...and that was, what, during the Summer? XP But this doesn't mean that I don't like Spyro anymore...I still play all the games of him that I have...and I'm willing to give the movie a chance (so long as VU doesn't produce it, geez. XP) I'll always like Spyro, but not be a fanatic about it. I mean, it's just a game after all. Nothing life important...

Soo...basically, being RealmJournalist was fun, only because I got to make great friends...now, it's just a bust. ^^; Welp...yeah, that's it.

I don't understand, what was expected, a slap on the wrist and the trouble makers will just be good?

If someone's wasting time, strip them of their avatar and signature and change their personal-message to Time-Waster.
If someone's being idiotic and harassing members BAN THEM! Temporary or otherwise.

It's really not too hard, you have these extra buttons to use, being moderators and all, but everyone is so scared to use their power, apart from reminding us that they have it. They'd rather give attention to the trolls by making them into special-little-characters, when what all the trolls really deserve is a banning and no further attention.

I'm not sure how democratic this forum is, on one forum we actually vote over the bannings of members. We've only had to do this about 4 times in two years, but, I think because we as a forum tackle the problems with permanent bannings people realise we mean business. But, to be honest, I don't think I've ever really seen a banning happen here, and it's a Censored shame, because it does work.

Maybe it's the bitter part of me saying this, but I'm not sure whether moderators that run with their tails between their legs at the first sight of a bit of trouble, are actually fit for their job. It makes you wonder, really.

I don't wish to be rude, or patronising, but yes, I do think a certain level of leniacy was in effect which must be stamped out. It was so easy to argue with Diane, which we did, but did she just leave or did we try to effectively stop that behaviour? For example, an IP address ban for someone who hasn't signed up (making sure we don't ban any members along with the problem-person)

If someone were to join up and start harassing, how would you have really sorted the problem? Unless you can get the initiative to be moderators yourself, it's going to be hard for us more primitive beings to do so.

What can possibly be said? Was it the admins' faults for their inability to use their powers correctly? Was the owner of the board not as competent as first believed? Were the people of the board all complete morons or hypocrites who believed they could do better? Or, as I suspect, was it the fact that there was never a real need for a place such as this?

To the Owner of the Board: Whatever your descision to do with this dead place, it's your own board. Don't let the suck ups or the smart alecks try and influence your choice. They obviously don't matter, do they? After all, it's your board, not theirs.

To the Admins: I don't know how much power you have over this little messageboard, but obviously either you didn't like your jobs or you didn't know how to use them. According to the inside sources I have sent, you all tried to vote together on whether or not to ban members, and were unable to reach consensus each time. Is this truly incompetence, or were you perhaps just too caring to run this place properly?

To the Other Folks: Some of you don't seem to give a f.u.c.k. about your overtly kind administrators, instead just yelling at them that you could have done a better job. More of you demand that they come back, because without it, your way of life will be destroyed. And still others seem to have no clue what is going on around here. Really, it doesn't matter what happens now.

I've seen the progress of this little messageboard, ever since it had only 4 members. And while it used to be a decent place, now it's become a hellish nightmare.

If people want to leave, they can leave. If people want to stay, they can stay. If people don't care, they don't care. This place will die out.

It's the end.

Dixie is totally right. We always talked about banning, and yet we never did it, even when the spammers deserved it. We would have been SMART and have locked the Diane topic, we would never have a bunch of members making fools of themselves by lowering themselves to the level of some spammer.

Well, I hope that the next admins, whoever they might be, will learn from our mistakes... And learn that the ban button isn't here to be shiny.
And not make exceptions, too. We deleted some spammers' topics, and yet we left others be. It wasn't our smartest move...


Oh, and I think TTE turned Natsu into an admin because she offered to help... And as TTE is the owner of the board, I guess he's always an admin. *shrugs*

Okay. Thing is, I think all of your ideas are good. But, as much as I love it, I really can't be MA anymore.

So, really, what I think we should do is restart the SFA. A whole new time. We'll start by first making a constitutuion, and then after that, we elect new SFAdmins. I mean, jeez. I didn't chase all the old SFAdmins away. They've been dissented with the fandom and its members for a while. I even heard TP say she could barely write TRoD's sixth chapter! DSI quit ACID Reign, Dark never got inspored to stat A Hybrid's Tale, DF never wrote a single fic, KT basically only does ADIFF now because it's more interesting, Cocho doesn't really write at all, PG's quit her stories, even Angry Mob, and I'm barely getting along with Realm Wars! If that's not a problem, I dunno what is.


But it's up to you guys. I'm gonna start a Constitution thread, but it's all dependant on you guys to make it happen. Shall SFA survive, or shall it be destroyed, I know I'll never forget you guys.

I would hate to see Spyro Fan Anonymous to die.

I know I rarely post, usually because I'm totally confused about the stuff, because well, I'm a late Spyro Fan, I've only played AH'sT & SSL, and hardly knows anything about Spyro, but i'm still learning as much as I can, mostly from you guys, thanks to everyone here. I really will miss you guys if all of you leave.

Also, I going to help this place whenever I can, I maybe a Newbie to Spyro, but Spyro is still a great game, I won't let my fandom of Spyro die so easily, it'll still live on! OK, VU made a "few" mistakes at the time, but at least they're trying, I'm hoping to see Spyro on the next Generation Console, if the game is cool, if the game sucks, Spyro will still be one of favorite series.

That's all I can say, I can't really call myself a good fan of Spyro, but I'm learning and someday play the ones that started it all, learn more, and keep the fandom from dying.

Why make a new SFA if the fandom is now 'dead'? Unless it's a different topic, or something along those lines.

Then you've to consider who you will invite to the new forum and who you will leave behind.

The cynic in me says only the SFAdmins will be invited and the rest of us can off ourselves as far as anyone cares. *shrug* Because, that same attitude was given by everyone deciding to quit and leaving us stewing in our own juices anyway.

But again, maybe I'm being unecessarily offended.

I also won't mind adding ideas to some sort of 'SFA Etiquette'.

As long as we don't delete the current SFA... After all, there are good and bad points. Sure, there are useless threads, BUT some debates are quite interesting and new members can learn new things about Spyro. Maybe we should lock all the topics, and start a new SFA, as you said.

Even though I recall being 120% aginst it yesterday. It's getting CONFUSING.

I agree with the constitution thread. If we make a new Spyro Fans Anonymous, we need a constitution AT THE BEGINNING. We never had a constitution before, so no wonder some members broke the rules. There was NO rule. (except TP's ones, a year after the creation of SFA)
And we need to discuss the rules in a thread, methinks. >_>

Also, I wish that no ex-SFAdmin will take advantage of the fact that now that they don't have to be nice anymore. I don't want ex-admins to post insults as guests. Something tells me that might happen...

And about me not writing fics... I can't even find inspiration in French; how can I in a foreign langage? XD

So obviously, I have no intentions of returning to Adminship.


I think I'll join you.

Besides, it's not like I actually do anything around here. That and what with theatre stuff taking up most of my time, I barely stop by here anymore. ( Although I'll check in from time to time.)

Every time I've visited, though, everything just seems so dead. There's nothing worth responding to, just about all of the topics have been discussed to death, the only thing that I see that's been updated almost every day is 'Funland', and after that there's nothing that I find even remotely interesting.

We can't let SFA end like this. I know it will eventually come to an end but I don't want it to end like this.

I agree with DSI that the earlier days were more fun, I've been a member here for a little more than a year. At least every three or more months something bad happens. DDO, Diane, new members (I'm not saying all the newer members are bad).

The thing isSPYRO
Fans Anonymous is meant to talk about Spyro
! Sure getting off topic every once in a while is alright but if people want to start talking about a way different topic make your own forums about it. I made a Jak and Daxter forums, sure it's pretty much dead by now but at least I made one.

Yes some people may find it annoying that I advertise it but http://marsworld.conforums.com wasn't just made in a celebration for 200 members but I made it because you can do two different things:

1. Have a fun little battle
2. Socialize and talk to people!

there's not just 1 topic so as long as you don't spam or put people down you can do whatever you want!

And maybe if you don't like the website, or me, make your own social thing.

It's called Spyro Fans Anonymous for a reason!!!
