I’ve seen this coming since the release of Home Base. I figured it would be a matter of time before they would retire this place. To put it simply, it’s hella broken and has only gotten worse in the almost two years I’ve been here. It’s going to be rough, but we’re going to get through it. We’re just gonna have to roll with the punches.

We’ve been told it’s going to be rough. Remember, the mods know about as much as what’s gonna happen as we do. This may not have even been their choice to make. You’ve all noticed the changes in the main scholastic site. The login itself is different. It was only a matter of time before the forums would be— I don’t want to say “on the chopping block”, but that’s the best I can come up with.  The move is going to give us all a chance to start fresh. We have the power to shape the Newsfeed the way we want it to be. The mods are listening to us, now more than ever. We can take advantage of that, and help shape it to what we want. 

Will it be a bit of a culture shock? Yes. But that’s good. This is going to take down the physical barrier of separate forums, and turning it into one big community (Becky calls us the Hubbles, but I refuse that name when “Homies” is literally right there).

We’ve been given time to prepare, save what we can so that we can move it when the time comes. Be grateful that we have that opportunity. I know there’s a lot of nostalgia in this site, but eventually we have to let go of that. You don’t need to see the thread to remember what happened: the oldies are a testament to that. 

I can get all sentimental.  I can say that this site is not the forums. We, the people who give it life and color, are. But you already know that. Getting rid of the forums does not get rid of us. 

I know it’s scary. Change always is. But I believe wholeheartedly that this is for the better. I agree with this change, and while I know it’s going to be tough, I know it’s going to be good for us. We’re just gonna have to give it time, and we’re going to help make it happen. Rome wasn’t built in a day, but many hands make light work. 

 

To the mods: Thank you for telling us and laying out everything you could. It makes things a lot easier for us than stumbling around in the dark. Transparency is key in things like this, and I really appreciate it. Communication between forumers and mods have vastly improved these past months and I have a very high respect for what you do for us. I can tell you all care a lot about what you’re doing, and you have a lot of faith in Home Base, so I’ll try to do the same. Y’all are great and I appreciate each and every one of you, even the people we don’t always get to see working behind the scenes. Thank you.

It'll be a culture shock because some will have no more culture...aka those who can't access HB. *buries face in hands* Sorry for being so pessimistic. But Ishmael's right, @All. Change is most of the time surprising. We'll have to change along with it.

@Galaxian, it's still possible that they can fix the problem that will not let you access the home base. But either way, I also want to say thanks. You were the first friend I made when I came to the SAMB. You will likely not remember, but I just wanted to say. Hope we'll see you around!

First we must see what is given, and look back on what will be taken in exchange. Decide if you’re going to continue living within these melting corridors, or come with those that have entered a fire-proof room.

I assume we have to constantly identify ourselves on chat until we start remembering. I myself am awful at putting usernames to people, but I've gone through things very similar to this many times before and I was able to adapt.

Once the newsfeed is up, we could have a masterlist of usernames and nicknames if there isn't a signature function. or, we could put our own signatures at the end of every post, albeit very simplified.

 

I forgot to mention this earlier, but those of you who are unable to make the switch for one reason or another, you will be greatly missed. I hope you can find some other way to maintain contact and maybe even rejoin our ranks someday, but I know that may not be the case. If these are your last few weeks with all of us, I want you to know that from the bottom of my heart I care deeply about your wellbeing and wish only the best for you in life. be careful out there, not everyone is as nice as us. Anyone, no matter how new, has made an impact on this forum and I want you to remember that. Some may make bigger impacts than others but you made an impact, and no one can ever do what you did.

Can we all at least not be so gray and moody, and rather make this month colorful and bright to at least look at, even if we're sad?

You guys have no idea how much each and every one of you mean to me. I'll try to stay active on HB but I'll most likely just disappear...
