It has been one hell of a ride

Postby Zanzarra on Mon Nov 30, 2009 9:14 pm

So, yeah.

I considered getting banned for my last posts here, but somehow it doesn't feel like it'd change anything.

So it's just another sappy "goodbye" thread - even more sappy because most of the people I enjoyed talking to on this forum are gone for a long time now.
Don't get me wrong, some of you new guys are cool and I guess the domiNATION forum will turn out allright ( let's see if I manage to lurk a bit at 9gig, too ), but still... I had the greatest days when this forumw as young and the people idealistic.

It turned into a snarking cesspit over the years, and it's hard to blame a single person for that. But even if some people outright hated the comic this forum is/was deidcated to, they'd still return here almost every day to domment on it, or just join in on some silly forum game.

We were a community. And a fucking awesome one, too.

Now this forum is going to be taken down, and it's unclear wether it's just being locked or deleted right away, so there's a good chance this post will disappear too.
A safe place to say how much this forum means/meant to me - one of the first places I regularly visited on the internet. I even started back in the 56k dial-up era - of the hour I was allowed to get on the internet every day, I've spent most of the time in this very forum.
So, in some way, this community shaped me. Let that mean whatever you think.

As I'm writing this farewell I have one last time to remember happy times with you all - even if I'm going to see some, or hopefully, most of you again in another forum, it is still the end of something. A chapter in a book, maybe - or whatever metaphor might apply.

So, to the people closing or deleting this. To the people who are behind this. To the people who've set this in motion:
Fuck you. You destroy something beyond your grasp, for the sake of it. Hope you're enjoying yourself while you're at it.

To all the people that made me laugh in those six years ( holy shit it's been six years ), to everyone I might've argued or made some silly jokes - to anyone who kept me awake maybe at some night:
Thank you. It might not have meant anything at that time, or we might've communicated for a very brief time, but still - it was fun while it lasted.

My best wishes,
- Zan

This.

This is how I wanted the forum to end. It's been a fun time, and I'm going to miss posting here. I met most everyone I know online through this forum, or the people on this forum. I'm glad to know other people enjoyed it like I did. We'll move on to other forums, but this one's got a lot of memories. And to think, I was here for three years. It's going to be strange with this forum gone.

We had a good run, and even if I'm sad it's ending like this, I'm happy from getting to know people here. It doesn't matter which forum we go to next, but I hope I can see most of you again elsewhere.

I won't post any silly pictures or anything this time, I figure you guys deserve at least one serious post from me before it closes.

See ya.

Yes.

Zan, I didn't talk to you much on the forum, but you are a rad, rad fellow.

Plat, even despite all the questionable image posting, you're one of my favorite internet people.

Just... yeah.

I may have only made the majority of my posts today, but I've been lurking here for at least 4-5 years, and I know Zan isn't the only one who was shaped by the community here. There were days where this was the only site I'd go to while spending my summers alone. While a lot of the people who were here back then have moved on with their lives, I've still enjoyed coming here almost every day and seeing what was going on with everybody here. Thanks for the memories.

I'll have nothing to miss, Xijiy.

Because I'll still see you on IRC/9Gig, of course.

(Damn you guys can be eloquent)

The people here are great - capable of extreme silliness and of serious conversation. I've found it hard to find others like that. Though I still like early DD, I think the best thing that came out of my following a link to the comic a few years ago was finding this place.

Ha, I joined back when the group migrated from Maulkin's? the Den? whichever one DomiNation followed. I just never posted.
Though I do need to join 9gig.

Looking back through some of the old threads, I really have to agree with Zan. This was an awesome place, and even if they take the forum away completely, they can't take our memories of it.

Thank you guys, for putting up with me for four years, and for all the arguments, discussions, flame wars, and general goofing around.

Goodbye.

[Bone]
Bone Bone Bone Bone.. Bone.. Bone.. Bone.. Bone.. Bone
Now tell me whatcha gonna do
when there ain't no where to run (tell me what)
(When judgment comes for you, when judgment comes for you)
And whatcha gonna do
when there aint no where to hide (tell me what)
When judgment comes for you (Cause it's gonna come for you)

[Bizzy]
Head south let's all bring it in for Wally, Eazy sees uncle Charlie
Little Boo, God's got him and I'm gonna miss everybody
I only roll with Bone my gang look to where they lay
When playing with destiny, plays too deep for me to say
Lil' Layzie came to me, told me if he should decease well then please
Bury me by my grand-grand and when you can, come follow me

[Layzie]
God bless you working on a plan to Heaven
Follow the Lord all 24/7 days, GOD is who we praise
even though the devil's all up in my face
But he keeping me safe and in my place, say grace
For the case to race with a chance to face the judge
And I'm guessing my soul won't budge
Grudge because there's no mercy for thugs
Oh what can I do it's all about our family and how we roll
Can I get a witness let it unfold
We living our lives to eternal our soul aye-oh-aye-oh

[Krayzie]
Prayyyyyyy, and we pray and we pray, and we pray, and we pray
Everyday, everyday, everyday, everyday
and we pray, and we pray, and we pray, and we pray
Still we laced, now follow me roll stroll
Whether is tell of his Heaven
Come let's go take a visit of people that's long gone
Darris, Wally, Eazy, Terry, Boo
It's steadily creeping up on the family
Exactly how many days we got lasting
While you laughin we're passing, passing away
So y'all go rest y'all souls
Cause I know I'ma meet you up at the crossroads
Y'all know y'all forever got love from them Bone Thugs baby

[Wi$h]
Lil Eazy's long gone
Really wish he would come home
But when it's time to die
Gotta go bye bye
All a thug could do is cry, cry
Why they kill my dog and man
I miss my uncle Charles y'all
and he shoudn't be gone, in front of his home
What they did to Boo was wrong
Oh so wrong, oh so wrong
Gotta hold on gotta stay strong
When the day comes
Better believe Bone got a shoulder you can lean on (lean on)

Hey and we pray, and we pray, and we pray, and we pray
everyday, everyday, everyday, everyday
and we pray, and we pray, and we pray, and we pray
everday, everyday, everyday, everyday

[Chorus - Layzie and Krayzie]
See you at the crossroads, crossroads, crossroads
So you won't be lonely
See you at the crossroads, crossroads, crossroads
So you won't be lonely
See you at the crossroads, crossroads
So you won't be lonely
See you at the crossroads, crossroads

[Bizzy]
And I'm gonna miss everybody
And I'm gonna miss everybody when I'm gone
And I'm gonna miss everybody
And I'm gonna miss everybody
And I'm gonna miss everybody

[Layzie]
Living in a hateful world sending me straight to Heaven
That's how we roll
Living in a hateful world sending me straight to Heaven
That's how we roll
Living in a hateful world sending me straight to Heaven
That's how we roll
And I'm asking the good LORD "Why?" and sigh
It's I he told me we live to die

[Krayzie]
What's up with murder y'all, see my little cousin was hung
Somebody was really wrong, everybody want to test us dawg
Then Miss Sleazy set up Eazy to fall, you know why we sinnin
And Krayzie intended on ending it when it ends
Wanna come again, again and again
Now tell me whatcha gonna do

[Wi$h]
Can somebody anybody tell me why?
Hey, can somebody anybody tell me why we die, we die?
I dont wanna die

Ohhh so wrong
Ohhhhh wrong
Ohhh so wrong
Ohhhhh wrong

I'm too tired to be eloquent...

Dominic Deegan was one of my first webcomics. Likewise, this was one of my first fora, thanks to the slays.

You guys had a great sense of humor. Still do. You knew how to welcome a newcomer to the internet at large and how to toughen them up for the outside, even if you didn't know it. I wasn't always the sarcastic poster I am now on most fora; I was too shy to come out of lurking for the most part. And I owe a lot to keen for that.

When the first locking came, I ended up on the fansite, and it wasn't the same. The community sense was missing - yes, we got along, but there wasn't the bond you can only get when you recognize "shut the fuck up" as a term of endearment. It never reached the same level as keen for the fun, snarky friendship I feel I have with all of you.

Like has been said, we've been through a lot here. We won't forget it, come lock or deletion. We can't.

Live on.
Snark on.

Can't say I was much of a regular, though I popped up every now and then. Won't be joining Domination, getting a bit much to keep track of all the forums I'm part of. Not saying I won't lurk in it though.
