This is a memorial to those who have left, despite being the only reason we are back online like this. And to any who might leave in the future for any reason.
A friend and I, with the help of a funny little mod, slowly pulled this forum back from the brink. It was slow, and tedious. It took weeks, almost a month, but we did it. But those were different times, and they're changing now.
We few who put this place back together, have all but departed now. Perhaps for different reasons, but we are gone none the less.
Doodle left for her life, and I wish her the best in it. I left for a rift caused by the restrictions on creative freedom. I left because those who created the laws and creeds of this forum, and those who joined them, could not see past what they created.
They became so self absorbed in their ways, they refused to see past them. They place rules, and codes above creative freedom and personal vision for an ideal of your own. They grew arrogant, and sought to impose restrictions on the creations of others, and so they did.
Perhaps, I as well, have grown arrogant. But it is no matter. I have finished my time here.
To Ghost, Enigma, and other friends I have made here. I wish you all the best. May the stars shine down on whatever path you walk, my friends. I will see you another time.
To Doodle Bug. We had a good run, and I find it funny that the first two that came back, are the first two to leave.
To Fireseeker, and the other Admins. I pray that someday you will look past your walls, and see how much potential your rules destroy.
And to Delix. I'm sorry, I really am. But I refuse to sit idly by as the ideals I hold closest are trampled upon. I love you.
I write this post, and write it as my last. I have no guarantee, and no faith, that this post will not be deleted.
This is the end, my friends. Perhaps we shall meet again in another time, perhaps...
