« Thread started on: Aug 3rd, 2006, 12:30pm »

What the hell is wrong with this place?! It's as dis-organized as Diane's grammar! I WANT ANSWERS! This place sucks now! All because some Censored ed company didn't make a good game. **** VIVENDI.
... wow. Just wow. I think I'll retire now... This board has been crazy. And I just can't stand it any more... the fun is fading away each day. Sure, reading Da Dark One's hilarious posts is amusing, but it's not what this board should be like... The Board could go up for deletion, I don't care; but I'm getting out of here before it gets crazier. Now, I don't know about the rest of the admins, but I'm retiring... Maybe I'll pop up here and there, check out how everything's doing, and look at Da Dark One's posts, but if I ever do come back to post, don't think I'm staying for good.
Actually, I lied, I'm never coming back.
So here I say...
*drumroll*
I Quit.
I'm sucha quitter, and I'm happy to be free from this hell.
No questions asked.
I don't care if you're curious.

And Charles Frost, if you'd like the MA Position...
Who would? This place sucks.
You're welcome to have it.
Have fun roaming through the boards. Spyro is dead.
And now, I must go... goodbye, everyone.
Adios, suckers.

Thats really sad Nikkola. It's true that this site has gone down-hill beacuse of VU. But I don't really see how things are crazy. So Dians a Nut job. Who cares! I don't think you should quit unless your not a fan of Spyro anymore. (Which I'm not saying that your aren't.)
But if there something that I'm missing or not understanding then I guess theres nothing left to say but, You will be missed. smiley

I knew this was going to come eventually, thus the time hast finally come... It's a pity to see you leave, yet I cannot stop you in any way. It'll be nice to see you around every now and then though...

I don't see myself as fit for your position, as I'm fine with what responcibilities I have now... Members such as Spyro would be, in my opinion a better choice... Nevertheless I'll leave that up to Joel...

Ah, and finally it ends. The SFA finally escapes its long, agonizing death, and actually dies.

It is saddening, but I only wish it had died quicker.

I'll leave it up to TTE to make an official announcement, but as of the 13th, the SFA will be finally out of its misery.

How typical. Don't want people opposing your belief so you take it out on them. I applaud you for your originality. Remind you of someone?

No, it reminds me of neither, you backstabbing piece of dirt. You Censored hypocrical idiot.

Get off my case. You know full well it wasn't me who instigated this. I have no "belief" here, and I am taking it out solely on you, so you can chop that 's' off your "others".
All you've ever done is argue for agument's sake, whatever the argument may be, which is pathetic. You complain about "DDO", yet are as damaging to the dying SFA as him.

I might have held the loaded musket, but it was the old SFAdmins who packed the machine guns, and you bloody know it. So don't you dare blame me for any of this.

If you, too, are so are so certain that this is the end, the get the hell off this site and let it live out its last 9 days in relative peace.


And, I say again, I seriously hope you choke.

SFA's been dead a long time. You guys never saw it.


Remember back in January? Everyone quit? Darkeiya, Turquoisephoenix, Panthergirl? Those three helped me found this place. And turns out, hey look, none of us liked how Spyro was anymore.

Since I couldn't quit, since this forum was as much a part of me as my left arm, and I wouldn't delete it until after everyone had an adequate solution to go to so that they could continue in their Ember-- I mean Spyro-- fandom, I just didn't come by. And when I did, I found ridiculous text links to porn sites. How come nobody complained then?


Oh, wait, right, because you're all afraid of "Da Dark One." Well let me tell you all something. If there was no DDO, there'd be no SFA. And without SFA, there'd be no complaining.

Honestly, I shouldn't have even reacted. I should have just deleted the reviews on my story. But they left a lasting impression. They showed me that somewhere out there, there's someone who hates Spyro. And I should've seen it then. Enter the Dragonfly sucked ass, and that's why the real DDO, as you might call him, flamed us, the ORIGINAL founders of SFA.

However, soon enough, every other post was about DDO this, and how he was such a threat even if he hadn't appeared in a year. And everyone went on ignoring the rewriting of Spyro's history as if it was nothing.

That was where I started having doubts. I'm surprised I didn't just start banning people on the spot, especially Ratchet, back in December! But look, I didn't. All that I wanted to do as DDO was chase all of you off here, so that I wouldn't have every other person whining "Where's SFA?" "Why can't I post?" or "ur a meene". Quite honestly, didn't you see my reaction in this topic? I told you all then "Well, I guess that's it." Hasn't anyone paid any attention? I stickied the topic so you'd see it!

In all honestly, please, everyone, go to that other forum. Go on and stop by on the 13th to make final posts here and everything, before I lock the board to preserve it for the ages-- at least until Conforums decides to delete it for lack of activity.


And please, give me an earful. I love to hear complaints.

Why the **** am I still posting here?!
Although I have no complaints to give, I would like to recieve some...
Bring it on, athwhipes.
I completely agree. I'm not part of the original, but I still agree. I noticed everything was different on that day. And quite frankly, I stopped giving a sh*t a month later.
You guys suck.
So I guess we should all meet on August the 13th... to share compliments (or most likely insults from some, like I)
I'll have fun. SFA, be sure to say hello to Satan for me.





The end of SFA is here.

Okay, so just because of VU - VG and other matters your throwing in the towel along with many others. My god I have seen things go bad on this site but for this to happen is just I don't know what to say...

Hell, if I could be Admin here I would be happy to have the job if it keeps the site going. Things haven't been going great for Spyro and I will admit that is true but this defeatism attitude is truly heartbreaking. When did we, the fans of what we claim to love become so willing to just give up. Well, I won't give up. I will keep on writing my fanfic and doing whatever I can to support this franchise. Come hell or high water I don't give up on anything I like or love.

Now is not the time to give up just becaue of all the bad things and yes I am fully aware of the amount of bad things that have come down the crap shoot lately. Oh well, its your decision and you have right to it. I just wish that people here wouldn't let what those bastards at VU are doing or this DDO jerk make them give up. If anyone has any comments or flames they want to send my way go right ahead and say what you want. I stand firmly on my decision and I don't care what VU aka VG or DDO fellow do.

Nikkola, I have only one thing to say to you and that is take care. I however will not be saying goodbye to SFA because I don't think it is dead. And if it is then it is not VU who is responsible but the fans who have given up on making this place what it can truly be... A special place where fans can come and chat and have fun despite whatever VU does. A franchise doesn't die unless the fans give up on it and even if only one fan remains then that franchise lives.

Is this the end of SFA? That is up to all of you but if you do decide to give up then don't use what those VU bastards are doing as your excuse because it is a pathetic excuse. Give up because YOU WANT TO NOT BECAUSE OF THEM BECAUSE IN MY BOOK THEY AREN'T WORTH IT! They can't make you give up unless you and yes I mean all of you decide to give up. IT IS YOUR CHOICE! To hell with VU aka VG and this DDO fellow. The SFA deserves to live on because we make it what it is. Each of us are the heart and soul of this site. So stop moaning about what is happening and make something positive happen.

The end only comes when we chose to give up. So, Nikkola, I understand how hard it is to watch something you like and love fall apart but instead of giving up on it how about fighting for it. But like I said you have a right to make your choice just be sure that you make it for the right reasons and not because of those few individuals that aren't worth paying any attention to at all.

So is it SFA (04-06?) or (04-??)? The choice is yours I however have already made my choice. Maybe it isn't a smart choice but to me in my heart of hearts it is the right one.

where I do agree entirely with Jamieque I have some thoughts of my own that have to do with something a LITTLE differen't than the current situation at hand.

I can't believe what I've been hearing. Ever since SFA began a tailspin into an almost certain firey grave and the former admins and such bailed. The only things they had to say to those who were still willing to have faith in the falling ship were nothing but negative remarks towards the fact that we were all still fans of Spyro and they weren't.

One preticular quote from a former friend of ours still rings clearly in my mind.
"Get a life!"
Get a life? I have a life thank you and Spyro just so happens to be a permanant part of it!
Now I'm not trying to be offensive please understand that, when I catagorize those of you who have left this site as "X-Spyro fans". But why do you feal it necessary to convert those who are fans of Spyro into "X-Spyro fans" like yourselves!

Come on people! You've turned a Videogame into a freakin religion!

If you want to leave then Spyro fandome then so be it. But then leave it quietly and leave the rest of us Spyro fans in peace.

And TTE I know it more than seams like this site has died. and thats mostly because it has. But it didn't have to. So there are only a few active members/guests/un-wanted guests here.
So what?
I could name a few sites off hand that aren't doing half as good as this one.

I can't make you do anything but I am asking that you not lock this site. In hopes that maybe it will thrive again. maybe all it needs is some time.
DDO will grow out of his childish fedish in time. He may not be forgotten by us, but what of new members?

Besides question marks look way cooler than an 06.
Of course that's just my oppinion.

Fair enough.. it's a reply I'd expect given thast I only joined a few days ago. My sense is that this board is in flux. And I've noticed that a lot of people here are pretty young. I'm 23 myself...

That's cool.

And as for this whole DDO thing, as long as there's topics that mention DDO many people in the future will read them and pose. Who cares, we have to deal with many problems in life, this is a minor one we have to live with. smiley
