Fare Thee Well, Keenspot.

Geek out, fanboy.

Fare Thee Well, Keenspot.

Postby TCampbell on Sat Sep 13, 2003 7:36 pm

Tomorrow, FANS and FAANS.COM move to Graphic Smash.

No, it's not the last time I'll ever work on a Keen property, let alone a goodbye to my many friends on Keenspot. But this is the last day I can really call Keen "my home." It's been a good home these last two years (three if you count Keenspace), and I'm grateful for the many opportunities it's given me. Here's hoping it can forge ahead and keep the future of webcomics looking bright.

Sorry, but I really, really, really, really hate that song... :)

[Children:]
There's a sad sort of clanging from the clock in the hall
And the bells in the steeple too
And up in the nursery an absurd little bird
Is popping out to say "cuckoo"
[Marta, Gretl, Brigitta:]
Cuckoo, cuckoo

[Children: Marta, Gretl, Brigitta: ]
Regretfully they tell us Cuckoo, cuckoo
But firmly they compel us Cuckoo, cuckoo
To say goodbye . . .
[Marta, Gretl, Brigitta:]
Cuckoo!
[Children:]
. . . to you

[Children:]
So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, good night
[Marta:]
I hate to go and leave this pretty sight

[Children:]
So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, adieu
[Friedrich:]
Adieu, adieu, to yieu and yieu and yieu

[Children:]
So long, farewell, au revoir, auf wiedersehen
[Liesl:]
I'd like to stay and taste my first champagne

[Children:]
So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, goodbye
[Kurt:]
I leave and heave a sigh and say goodbye -- Goodbye!
[Brigitta:]
I'm glad to go, I cannot tell a lie
[Louisa:]
I flit, I float, I fleetly flee, I fly
[Gretl:]
The sun has gone to bed and so must I

[Children:]
So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye

[Guests:]
Goodbye!

:D

Speaking of which I can't get the account yet? Why can't we buy an account for Graphic Smash before it opens?

Maybe this is the wrong place to ask....

Postby MatteoDL on Sun Sep 14, 2003 9:30 am

So long, and thanks for all the fish.

For reasons similar to those of Sebastian's, I won't be subscribing to Graphic Smash, but I hope I will be able one day. My webcomic tastes vary from time to time, but Fans! has always been up there in my preferences list.

I don't know whether I will be reading the dailies, I prefer not to start a thing I'm not sure I will be able to finish.

But I would like to thank Fans! for many things, mainly educating me about organized fandom. Before reading this comic, I was just barely aware of the phenomenon. Maybe that's because organization is not a cornerstone of Italian culture. ;)

Now you've even managed to get me to buy some collections of sci-fi short stories, instead of waiting for my friends to lend them to me.

I'll also miss all you people from the forums. You're a nice bunch, and the discussions that have been held here have always been interesting, even the silly ones.

Goodbye, my friends. I hope we will meet again one day. Who knows, maybe when I stop being a lazy bum and start my own webcomic ;)

Hmmm............I wonder if this forum will remain in the special place at the bottom of the forum listing or if it'll just fade away.



Heh heh, now we'll have three forums to play tag in!

True that. I forgot about those who do not wish to pay; but then, if they are not subscribers, and they miss several strips, what are they going to talk about in here?

The subscribers will talk in the GS Forums, while the non-subscribers will have nothing much to talk about in the GS Forums (not to mention that they are a minority, given that most readers (and more importantly, boardies) of FANS will pay the fee).

So yeah. One would have to be an insane fan of FANS to post here, because it is just futile.

Oh, hey, did someone call me? :)

You forgot the broke FANS fans.
I will some day subscribe (as there's some other interesting stuff up there), but right now I don't have the money (or credit card). Until then, I try to catch the strip each day, and will get the remainder when I subscribe (or the comic moves to free-for-all again).
The weird thing is, I started reading after it switched, but was able to read the archives from the beginning to the day it switched... so now I have an almost-two-month hole in the archive.
