Playfire - A Kind Farewell to the Community

Hello, dearest of my friends. I'm writing this extensively long farewell to my beloved community, not also that, I'd also like everyone to share their feelings from having Playfire shut down. No need to insult the transition to GMG here, I beg of you. Just talk about the good memories you've spent here, the great people you've met, the goofiest moments you've experienced on Playfire... maybe even the best moments of your life? Don't be ashamed to share, we all have great moments in here.

I already wrote a little post on the buzz with my feelings towards the subject, but this is where I've really been most of my time, the forum. I think a message here will do just fine too. Hopefully there's no problem about posting this, if so the mods are free to lock this thread, but at least leave it available for my buddies to read it, I'd really appreciate that.

Almost 6 years in here, feels like it was yesterday. This community means to me a lot more than you, the reader, might think. Not only I met some of the best human beings here, who have probably saved my life more than once, I also spent hours here goofing around and joking. The game threads were the easy way into getting on the forums, everyone looked so elitist and unwelcoming to new people back then, I only thought this way because I was an immature little prick who could barely speak English, it would be normal to dislike someone like me about 5 years back. As time passed, I ended up blending myself in the forums. One reply threads were easy to participate, just like sharing some funny images and saying what I loved or hated.

With baby steps I started being more and more involved in the community, even to the point that I became a Game Page admin. The sheer happiness of being able to help this place behind the scenes was an incredible feeling. Months passed and radMonkey opened a thread, Playfire needed Mods, so I applied and won that too. At the time I was baffled, surprised how far I have gotten, how much time I had invested in here actually had benefits. I have to admit, as a moderator I was a disappointment to say the least, I didn't do much and once again I want to apologize the mod team for that. But after all I matured as a person in here, I matured as a gamer in here, I grew up just like everybody else in here.

I know some of you probably despise me as a person, I don't blame you as I wouldn't be surprised if you did. As a farewell I want to come clean with everything and everyone, to leave any grudges, misunderstandings and dislikes behind. I want the last moments in this website to be full of supportive, strong, friendly people, people who do realize this isn't just a mere domain, it's a goddamn community! A community we all have joined and sticked around for so long, a community you have interacted with for years. A website that didn't get any big updates for literally years, but you still came to it almost everyday, because the community was and still is the key. Playfire as a community, at least in my experience, was admirable.

Many are still here, many have moved on. I'm still on the first group, I will be here until I click on my bookmark and suddenly my Mafia II background is not loading, the buzz is not appearing anymore... and my profile is gone. Playfire is gone. From that moment I will know it's the end of an era. Five and a half years of meeting gamers, dealing with "where's my money" users, pornbots, troll accounts that were gone in half a day, walls of text by Noia, CrazyMvM being weird, ADay teaching us kids how to behave, ToxicSunshine posting cat gifs, WarBear posting bear pics, Tomiello spamming his selfies and Sony love, we smacking Tomiello, pulse_archer's weird dreams, game threads that took 1.5 pages of the forum, SonOfAnarchy hitting on every living woman, Dazed being awesome, Kappakatt being 12 years old (but one of the sweetest people I've ever met), mack's threads, the Betiaful meme, MartinBunny's swing dog spam on the troll threads, Mxtt and Chvrches, Kazduin and his MGS fanboyism (Despite you being so absent, I still remember you, always), the SKAPPITTY SKOOPITTY threads, TK's PC spec obsession, pecan trolling... or being too serious, ofx360 and StrawHat (we should get in contact!) talking about anime, everyone bullying Alain (sorry man!), FatPigeon saying he's listening to Ozzy Osbourne for the 1000th time, SubZero with Dir en Grey and Danii, Kop being a brit and fighting Mxtt because of Lauren Mayberry, Dan being a pc masterrace brit, Phantom just being a brit while also being a frenchbong (you lovable dumbass), Agent britcrumbs and his kiddos (best wishes!), CrowDog being high and drunk, the member of the month contest (which I never won), F1rstag sharing his brutal death metal bands (great taste man!), and it goes on and on, the memories are neverending...

Like I said in my personal and heartfelt buzz, I would have done it all over again, joining the community, blending in here and staying here for almost half a dozen years while surpassing 10.000 posts througout this time, a hell of a journey if you ask me! After the domain is taken down, I will simply move on, I won't be joining the Community Beta with all due respect, however who does join it, I hope you have tons of fun and find the same amount of great people I have found here.

My heart is here, so it shall be. This is my Playfire epitaph, best wishes to everyone from now on, never forget you've been part of something great, so long firestarters. ♥

Playfire, or no Playfire, this will never change regardless of where I end up Finn the Human.

Also, I don't want to hear any apologies about what kind of moderater you were here. You always did quality work and I couldn't have been happier choosing any other member to join our team. Plus you're one of the few that stuck around after stepping down, and I love you all the more for it.

I know you have me on Steam. If you can find me on Facebook, or elsewhere, I'd be honored for you to add me. It seems like I'll by tying up a lot of loose ends in the coming time before the transition here... Cry <--- I never use these emojis anymore (smoke 'em if you've got 'em).

PS: Oh, and there's no way that I'm locking this thread.

I'll be at this until the gates close for good on us, whether we're talking spam-bots, or just nasty posts. I won't close the farewell threads though. I know that in the past we usually as people to keep everything in one thread, but this is too big for that, in my opinion. I want everyone to have their moment.

I'd honestly really like to make a thread of my own to talk about all of my memories here, but I really honestly won't even know where to start. There were so many chapters of both the community and my own personal life on this website for me to know where to start. We'll see if I get to it at some point.

I agree with that 100%. Spent a good 6 years on here and I'm pretty sure you've spent 8 or so. How the hell would you even start?

Yeah, almost 8 and a half at this point. I honestly can't believe it's been this long. I started here when I was 16 years old and I'm turning 25 at the end of this year. I grew into adulthood on here with this community. :/

You were here just a bit before me - I joined at 18 and I'm 26 in a few weeks. December will mark 8 years for me.

It's weird to think such a huge part of my life will be effectively disappearing. But I'm really grateful to this community for a lot of things - always been here when I needed it.
