    A heavy heart

    A sad face :(

    A genuine sad me... I think this place has reached such a state of inactivity that it will be closed soon. Certainly, there's not much to bring me back at all lately. :(.

    It's like the end of an huge era. At least for me. BoM has been a source of knowledge, of community, and for myself, a source of strength (definitelkky one, fairly recent, that a few will know). I deem a lot of the people here among the better people I have ever met online.

    I love this place and am so sorry to see it die. Everything must have it's time though I guess. It's been a blast. Much love all.

    I've decided not to be on Facebook or Twitter anymore, but if any of the people here want to keep in touch with me (who knows, maybe there's one out there) my addy is philipaldred -at- gmail .com.

    Hugs from your ever **** up, but ever friend... Barmy x

    Stop being so melodramatic and have a damned pint. You'll feel better.

    Then just stop by every week or so to comment on stupid stuff us Yanks are doing.

    I hate to say it, but I think the election of Obama had a lot to do with the death of the Alleys. The site was overwhelmingly liberal (the US definition of the word) and without a "Bush" to bash everyone went away. Now I find myself far more likely to post in Whatnots than any other forum. However, I still check in at least once a week.

    No, it's the state of the gaming world that has changed drastically. We need another game/series that is impactful as the BG/IWD series were.

    That.

    And after Project Eternity hits this place and the new Torment things will pick up on steam again.

    This is not some sort of social network where we upload selfies or pics of the things we eat. :)

    Stay calm and...sorcerer on.

    Maybe Barmy can upload a selfie after he has the pint or two (or three or four) that T2 suggested and we can work off of that . . . :p

    On a side-note: Funny how such threads attract folks from all over the BoM.

    Probably a combination of there not being many of us left and also the thread title.

    Stage 2 – anger. Because I’m pissed off at Barmy for starting this thread in the first place.

    OK, I’ll tell you guys what – I’ll do my part to keep this place going if you do.

    Ah, who am I kidding; with game wiki’s and the like these days, sites like this don’t stand a chance – it’s hopeless.

    Then again, what are y’gonna do? Nothing lasts forever.

    Wow Splunge, you killed off the next four stages in one post. Now the rest of us can't hop on board that little motif started by MoN.

    You know what you are? A Thread-Hog (Tm).

    Well, dmc, you sound like you're back at Stage 2, so someone else can take it from there. :D

    Seriously though, the message near the bottom of the main page currently says:
    Registered members who have visited the forum today: 32
    That's not an unusual number these days, but not too long ago, it would have typically been at least double that. Traffic definitely seems to be down. I blame Aldeth (for getting a new job where he doesn't have time to post from work).
