Fuck you.

Damnit... I almost hit 2,000 posts too.

I REALLY wanted to hit the 10,000 mark though...

Damn you Tom. Damn you to hell.

I kinda doubt this is true, what with april 1st right around the corner ( seriously its like less than an hour away where I live ) and I won't mind too much since there are hundreds of bbs's on the internet. One of us will just have to post about one for us to move too before ours dissapears so that our community can move to it and it would be like nothing happened.

If it's not an April Fools joke (which I'm assuming it is), I won't believe it until I hear it from Tom or Wade.

Well, if this is really true, I'll miss you guys. Hopefully we keep in touch somehow, because though I can't really say I've made that many BBS friends, I always enjoyed reading all the posts you guys made. I wish it didn't have to be this way...but it looks like it just might.

I havent been on here that long, only a few months, but i know i spend most of my time on the bbs. Yeah they are making a chat thing but it wont be the same. The chat will be more personal, and not as good i dont reckon. You wont be able to just post what you think on topics of your choice and stuff like that. I think its a bad idea and that newgrounds will lose alot of people by doing this, so i really am hoping that its a joke, cos chat or other portals wont be the same, and wont replace it very well.

if not only this weren't an April Fools day joke, but to add insult to injury, Tom's REAL April Fools Day joke sucked ass.

Wade has posted in here already and someone linked to Tom's post about shutting down the forums.

Look guys, it was not an easy decision to make for Tom, but he has to think of what is best for the NG community as a whole. It will do all these up and coming flash artists no good if NG is not around to allow them to showcase their talent because some asshat decided to post on NG he was gonna off his teacher and no one did anything.

They are aware this may cause a few members to leave NG, but you can't make an omelet without breaking a few eggs.

I like this metaphor :)
Newgrounds wasn't (and still isn't) about the BBS in the first place. How can people say it won't survive!? I came here for the movies and games and noticed the forums and i thought it was cool. Now I will just go back to movies and games.

We're not saying newgrounds wont survive. It will. But it will loose the depth that some of its residents have come to love. It will lose that special something that keeps people here and active in the community, even if they can't for whatever reason create material for the portals. I know I'm going to miss it. And even though I was looking forward to the Art and Lit portals, I would trade it all for the continuation of the forums.

Meh, if the BSS was really shutting down, then the mods wouldn't care enough to lock/ban.
