An apology

Post by Dormin on Tue Mar 13, 2012 2:22 pm

Hello friends, this may seem a bit odd...but yeah..I feel like I must.

I'd like to apologize for being a bit...annoying in the past. If I recall correctly I was whiny, depressing, and a bit rude sometimes. I'm not proud of it, but hey, I've changed. Very Happy

Also, I might pop in once in awhile, I'd like to be a part of this forum again.

It's okay Dorm, no one's perfect and I understand you were going through a rough patch at the time. Everyone goes though rough patches. I've had more than a few very rough patches in the last year. And when you go through those patches you may not always say the most appropriate things.

Nice to hear things have changed for you though Very Happy

Though I am sorry to say that here isn't a whole lot to come back to. I'm very sad to say that eurospore seems to be in it's closing days Sad

Even as amazing as this place has been, all things eventually have to come to an end.

I haven't been around much is what happened Wink

As you can see from the Latest Topics side bar, not many people are posting anymore. Less and less perople are getting on daily, if at all. Eurospore had it's Golden Age, but I believe it is nearing the end of the line.

I think most Eurosporeons are moving on with other games and life of course. I'll stick around as long until SimCity comes out, but if that doesn't put life back into ES I'll wait for Vektrix to send the final verdict.

No problem Dorm, the main thing is that you learn and move on from your own experiences, and compliment that with advice and the mistakes of others. All people go through rough patches, I have been going through a very long rough patch, which generally manifests itself in my ignoring the rest of the known universe. others lash out, or, like yourself, are not sure how to cope, and occasionally let the mask slip and say things, quite franky, you wish you hadn't in hindsight.

As for EuroSpore, you may have noticed I have not posted in 19 days - shock horror. As many of you may known, the domain is up for renewal soon (end of April), and due to a combination of factors, I am at this stage VERY unlikely to renew it - these include both finance and activity here. I am very much considering winding the forum down, we have been here for a little over 3 years now, debating, postulating, agreeing and disagreeing with each other. The forum has overcome some obstacles, some major, but mostly minor, and many people have earned my friendship, respect and even trust and loyalty. I am thrilled to say that I believe many of you have even looked to me in your darker moments and seen me as some sort of father figure.

I have recently been considering both the closure and handing over of the reigns in this endeavour. I dare say this place his amongst an elite of forums on the internet that has had stability at it's core, and harboured an atmosphere that promotes friendliness, even though some members in the past have tried their best to derail the community.

I think it is now time to decide the fate of this hallowed cyberturf, do we pull the plug? Do we see how it goes, or do we give it this push for further greatness? I am willing to give all three a go at this stage.

Leave it in its current state. There will still be a handful of people still here to enjoy it. Optimistically speaking there is a small chance we can bounce back into more a active state.

A forum, in order to remain functional, requires a steady influx of active members and a strong central userbase. It has a (very small) but strong userbase, but no real member influx. Its central focus was around Spore, which few people even play anymore. If Eurospore is to continue, a new focus has to be created to draw in new users and promote activity. For example, a large, active, controlled, and strongly advertised Minecraft server could do that.

Should eurospore decide to close, there is another Spore Forum still out there

http://ommworld.com/HowlingWolf/index.php

It is owned by OldRygel and he has decided to keep the site active for the time being. As you can see, Spore is not the central focus. It is basically a very young eurospore. I am sure that OldRygel and the others wouldn't mind if you guys dropped by and said hello. They are friendly and outgoing people.
