Last week Tom posted a cryptic message about the fate of the bbs. Most of us assumed it was a joke, and with the new baby it had been very difficult to contact the Fulps for a confirmation. Unfortunately, we, the moderators, just received confirmation from Wade that the Newgrounds BBS will be deleted soon. The site will have to be taken down for a while, so the administration is currently discussing what the best time for that will be and a date has not been settled on.
Rucklo has decided to pay his respects by making a song featuring portions of the phone conversation he had with Wade about the closing of the bbs.
I always knew there was a possibility that this might happen. The bbs takes up a lot of bandwidth with the uploading and downloading pictures, and the percentage of bandwidth usage is too high with the new lit and art portals coming. I suppose I just didn't expect it to end this soon.
We encourage you to make a memorial in the BBS's honor and to post it in this thread. Maybe we won't be able to post anymore, but this thread will stand as a memorial to all of the good and bad times, all of the drama and all of the boredom.
In case this is the last time I post, good bye I guess? We'll still have blogs. :(
