    This event made it so lots of people's entire networks here are being thrown out. That is the reason, that is what is annoying. I am ready to move on, I understand this might have gotten too big for Jonah to handle and he wants to shut down, but we all need more time to contact everyone and relocate elsewhere.

    Thanks,
    I've been on metal forums where the exact same situation has happened.
    I'm not new to this... so I kinda do understand.

    Well, again, until I'm explicitly told I'm not allowed to voice displeasure in a civil manor, I'll continue to do so. So really, you're the one beating a dead horse here.

    Hey I am just repeating what I read. They seem to be ok with complaints if you are just made aware of the changes, but if you become repetitive, they start waving around the ban hammer.

    That's fine. If they want to ban for something so silly, I'll gladly accept it. I'm really just trying to help you, since dissent seems to upset you so much.

    Hey, I used to be a part of Newsarama. Remember that forum? You would have to because it doesn't exist anymore. It also had a very toxic community and they decided to destroy the whole forum rather than try to moderate it. We all should be glad they care enough about the community to try to police it rather than pull a newsarama and just blow it up and walk away.

    And let me just say, if it means that much to you all... yeah you should have your threads back.
    But that aint up to me or any of us.

    CBR was really the only place I had to go to when I wanted to talk about comics. I don't have any friends IRL that like them. I found the Ultimately Off-Topic thread pretty soon after I joined CBR. Back then I was more angry and willing to cause crap, but I got to know the whole group and I hung out with them and we just talked about anything: comics, movies, life. It was nice having this tiny group to talk to. Sometimes we got into fights, but I always considered it like a family of sorts. You love 'em and hate 'em. I mean I used to get annoyed at Wyokid all the time, but the dude's a cool person once you get to know him. When the boards rebooted, I panicked because I had only just came back to CBR after a long hiatus. I didn't want to lose contact with anyone. And honestly, that giant chat thread just isn't the best place for the kind of conversations I had with my buds. That's all I'm saying. And leaving the site would be painful since it's been my home of sorts since I don't exactly have any other place to go to talk comics.

    I beg to differ. Many threads (with a few exceptions such as Ultimates or the Omnibus Discussion, Rita, Minority/LGBTQ Threads, most appreciations threads) were'nt that Tribal but Most were very exclusive. Often new posters were put on ignore or harassed out of them. Unfortunate that Ultimates has to be thrown in with some of the worse offenders.

    But it was becoming worse--an epidemic...or worse a pandemic. You could tell the guilty threads by how many new members could join them.

    I mean had the Ultimate gang hung out in more threads..maybe this wouldn't have happened...heck if every Community thread had participated in other threads..so as to remove the country club mentality I doubt CBR would have had to upgrade.

    You could make a FB group.
    We did that with an old Thrash forum I used to frequent.

    Works quite well.

    I was a member of two groups for awhile. I wanted something a bit more quieter, so I stuck with the Ultimates.

    I don't want people to know my real identity, not to mention how would any new CBR fan learn about our Ultimate Marvel chat group? You're suggesting we leave CBR.

    Do any of the Ultimates even really have Facebook accounts? I know Wyokid does.
