I really don't think it's gonna make a fart of difference. More traffic, maybe...

The BBS is a good time killer. it should stay.
Even with all the new stuff that is coming, there will always be room for the BBS

There's gonna be no need for any forums except the Flash and Wi/Ht forums, so the general section will indeed be removed.
Seeing as the NG Chat will eliminate most of the BBS then I'm gonna guess that means the following forums will be deleted.
Clubs and Crews (maybe)
Don't worry though, the new parts of the site will be awesome :)
I bet. Also those of you fearing the deletion of the Art Forum, if we gain an Art Portal then the Art Forum will surely stay, but more rules will be put on the Art Forum, or it will be deleted and replaced with a New Fresh Art Forum (that would probably be the best solution).
Flash Portal = Flash Forum / Programming Forum
Audio Portal = Audio Forum
Art Portal = Art Forum
So Dry-Ice, am I right?

So enjoy the tee-hee fun while you can kiddies!
What I'm trying to say is when we get these new things who here believes the BBS should be deleted or who believes it should stay?
I'm not even going to use the chat, if it ever is finished. It's a waste of time, and if you want to chat with your friends here, get their Msn or aim.
I WANT TO FUCK ON THE FLOOR AND BREAK SHIT

It's not like NG chat wasn't around before, it co-existed with the forums a while ago and I never used it once, the forums should stay, NG Chat would be used for more short discussions while these forums would be used for greater and longer discussions. NG Chat I feel would be too hectic to replace an entire forum.

Enjoy it while it lasts guys!
You're such a tease.

Nah, chats are mainly filled with spam. Oh wait... But seriously, the BBS will still be popular, as forums and chatrooms offer different types of communication. Chat is more for small talk, things that the BBS mods wouldn't generally allow anyway.

Do we have a date on this? If you're gonna take away the BBS, can't you just lock it? Save the good 'ol times?
I really am gonna miss this place, it was a good, funny, and friendly part of my life ever since I started posting. Seriously, can't we just keep it? Why delete it? Does it take up too much room? It only takes up I---------------I much room on the bar, I MEASURED!
Seriously, I might start print screening some parts of the BBS.
I'm REALLY fucking sad, this just killed my day.
OH BOO HOO!

Would Tom reconsider deleting the BBS?
He never said he was going to, the OP thought he would.
Also a chat can never replace a forum.

The thought make be feel sick but NG Chat has to come I guess and Dry-Ice must know these things after all. I knew about the chat but this is such a shock I love the BBS as I said, but are posts all gone what about the clubs? I'm part of two clubs EGB Elite Guard Barracks and Newgrounds Department Of Defense will these all be gone?

It couldn't possibly be as bad as the Marty joke back from 2001-2002 where on April Fool's day Tom literally turned the site into one shitty flash that been blammed ages ago made by marty.
Then again, if the BBS goes then what will the forum mods have to look forward to? They no longer would have fun torturing users who taunt them and chat rooms are far too easily raided these days.

If Tom Fulp is serious about this then I expect to see a very high suicide rate among forum regulars shortly after the NG chat is released.
