Post by: purplevit on November 23, 2018, 04:27:30 AM

It is very sad but I understand your reasons, Neko.

At first I would like to say Thank you for this forum. I met a lot of good people here and it was a Gambit Home to me because noone in my country whom I know is reading comics.


This site has a lot of golden Gambit history. I hope it won't be forgotten.


Also I have a lot of good memories with GG.
Thank you All for good things and chats. Will miss you All.


I hope some day we will meet here all agin ;) . Good bye, my friends :gambit:


P. S. If someone would want, you always can find me on twitter

Been lots of fun. This was the first message board I've really been a part of. Saddened to see it go. Thank you boss for captaining the ship. We've had some great conversations.


God bless you all. Stay in touch. Dog pile fools on CBR. Never forget.


Purp. Set the Gators free...

Darn..can you say why?
Not enjoying the hobby any longer. It costs some money to maintain and to pay for something and be unhappy is not a good thing.  It's not as expensive as it used to be, but its still costs something.

I can change my mind and still might because its not easy to let it go but its not fun. I haven't read a comic book in almost a year. I buy them, and don't read them. I need to stop doing that too.

It's very hard to be a cheerleader for a character when you aren't enjoying the books he is in.

I'm a strong believer in positivity and I don't have that at this time. I don't know when that will change or if it will change.

I'm also a never say never type .... so, maybe some Christmas cheer or the hubby giving me some positivity in regards to the site. In general he tells me how little it takes to keep it rolling. LOL

I just feel at this time, I need some change. I will always enjoy everyone who graces this place, the discussions and general camaraderie.

I will say the response has been great, thank you.  :gambit:

I’m getting a bit verklempt.  I realize I don’t post anywhere near as much as I used to, but this place has been such a stable rock of Gambit-ness.  I would totally lurk even while I was on my own years of giving a middle finger to comics.


Neko, you do what you need to - thank you for creating this place in the first place to meet all of you and share excitement, frustration & laughs.

Post by: Nekobaghira on November 24, 2018, 12:53:33 PM
Hindsight being 20-20 ..... maybe I should wait til Gambit is in limbo. Almost feels like I'm bailing on him when he actually is in a book/s (Red is debatable), and three trades coming out.

Like giving up. It's gonna take me a while to figure it out anyway. It's why I'm vague. Nothing worse then doing something you can't take back or in this case restore. I would want a copy somewhere just in-case things changed.

I'm a little frustrated with his current status and use. <-- understatement. LOL
Anyway, I'll keep you up to date and use it while its here.  Until I actually remember how to get to the back part of the site, nothing is happening.

I can't even remember how to update the history or appearance pages, so ... is what it is. :)

Edit: Maybe all that is needed is a revamp and more simplification of the current place. Anyway - guess I'm over it as far as grumpiness goes.

The support I'm seeing here in this thread has been terrific. Thank you.

Title: Re: Goodbye
Post by: Nekobaghira on November 24, 2018, 11:30:26 PM
Let the Gator Dem run amok as far as I'm concerned. It's cute. LOL

edit:
It's just taking time, I'm not as technically astute as I used to be. Which is fine, gives me time to think, look at options and all that and I don't want to be abrupt either.

I've done things abruptly in the past and it wasn't a good idea. Let time do its thing while I figure out mine. LOL

All of you are great.  :D

oof, heavy topic but completely understandable. No need to keep with a hobby/ interest if it ruins your mood.
If the site goes down, it has been great meeting and talking with you all. You've been a much needed port in the storm. Neko, you've played an integral part of this community and everything you have done for us is appreciated.
Cheers, everyone! Hopefully, we'll cross paths elsewhere

Awww... I haven't been around much, but I would really miss this place. A lot! But I guess you have to do what you want to do. I would be really sorry to see the site go. It's been a part of my life for such a long time.

But... there might be a solution if you really intend to let this go. There's this site known as Facebook. It won't be the same, but that might be a way to keep the discussions going?

Wow, I didn't think I would actually be sad about it.

It's been great, you guys, and thank you Neko for giving us this platform.
Title: Re: Goodbye
Post by: Nekobaghira on November 27, 2018, 04:53:57 PM
Yeah, we've got a tumblr and a twitter too. It's not a bad idea, keeps top of mind. But I don't want to be in charge of it.

Not a fan of FB, I like twitter and I've yet to determine how useful tumblr or sites like that are .... they are just a blog.

Though I'm not a fan of FB, you are right, you can comment there. It's an option.

So, no more movie, TV, or video game quotes, no more You Can Have Any Super Power, But... well, it all had to come to end some time. When I first came here in 2011, I needed a place to talk about Gambit because of what was going on at the time with him and this placed helped with that. It's been fun ;)

Post by: X-fan73 on December 01, 2018, 02:58:45 PM
Shame to see the site go. This site was a refuge during the dark days for Gambit such as Deathbit. Currently I think Gambit is experiencing a high point, most anti Gambit creators have moved on.


While not everyone  is happy with Gambit's current direction, I never found disagreement here to be disagreeable!
 Marvel doesn't have a clear vision for the X-Men IMO, let alone Gambit. So enjoy the stories Gambit is in, where he is not made a fool intentionally.


I will say for my part, I have enjoyed what Kelly Thompson has done with Gambit lately.But I am a strong Romy supporter.
Ultimately, it would be selfish to expect Neko to run this site when she no longer enjoys the hobby.


And on an amusing note Marvel has made a FEMALE stop reading their comics, the worst sin Marvel could think of! :P
Thanks for hosting Neko, take care all!

Crazy to see this site go. Ive been coming here off and on since 2003, 2004 maybe? Long time. Haven't been all that active, especially the last 7-8 years.

Appreciate all you have done for us, Neko.
Title: Re: Goodbye
Post by: Nekobaghira on December 01, 2018, 08:49:28 PM
Thanks X-fan73 and killphil.

No exit date yet but, I'm a tad lazy on these sorts of things. LOL
And yes, Marvel drove away a female fan. Not sure how much they cared for the female fan to begin with but ... is what it is.

Edit: if you are enjoying MMX, awesome. I think that is great. I'm not one of those but we don't all like the same stuff.

Neko thanks for creating this place. I am not online as much as I used to or could due to real life but this place has been my main source of Gambit related news.

But the most important thing is for you to be well. Take your time and take care of yourself. Having battled with depression myself for a few years, focus on positivity and what makes you happy. It is OK not to want this anymore. Be well, OK?
Title: Re: Goodbye
Post by: thjan on December 11, 2018, 12:06:22 AM
Yes, another thanks here, Neko.  This has always been a wonderful place for Gambit fans to come together and a great resource for keeping up with the latest Gambit related news.  I've greatly enjoyed all the times over the years that I've visited this place(even if most of it was as a lurker). There always seems to be a number of people that are dismissive of or flat out hate Gambit on other forums, so it was always nice to have a place to go where everyone was as big a fan of Gambit as I am.  Anyway, I will be sad to see this place go, but if you are not enjoying it anymore then you should definitely do what's right for you.  Fan sites are supposed to be fun, not a burden or a chore.  Thanks again for providing a place where there as been so much enjoyable conversation and reading for Gambit super fans over the years.

Thanks for everything Neko. You've done a beautiful job with this site and I do hope you can keep it up! It has been wonderful chatting with other devoted fans of Gambit. We have stuck together despite Marvel barely featuring him and through all the bad writing. I wish I could've been around more,especially when Gambit was still in his prime and when more was going on in here. But I'm forever grateful for Neko and her beautiful website The Gambit Guild!


I hope you can somehow keep it open Neko! But if you can't you've done an amazing job!

No problem. Keep your passions. Like what you like and don't what you don't. Its all good in the grand scheme.

We discuss, we get heated and we heal or understand each other. It's why I like this place so much. Why its hard for me with my thoughts for it at this time.

In general, I want you all to be good, be happy and enjoy what you love. It was always my view for this place.

All good to disagree too. It's a little good to practice debate anyway. :)
Anyhoo. I've rambled on.

Edit: And to Purp ... I know you probably are busy ... but keep the art rolling in. I've missed seeing fan art of Gambit.

Neko,


You should definitely post more on tumblr or twitter since those places are great free platforms. I've heard tumblr has a great comics and remy community as well. So maybe the guild could still be active there if this website is closed. Hope you're doing well and thanks for running the guild!

Its a good option as is the FB page, which has loads of storage for pictures. The only thing annoying with FB is the ads but ... there are some of that everywhere anyway.
I was toying with an idea ... I don't want to say yet ... but as I work this out ... I might have a solution I had not thought about.

Thanks again for all the support gang, its been truly appreciated. :)
Title: Details
Post by: Nekobaghira on December 16, 2018, 07:43:02 PM
The scoop: on Dec 31, the forum is gone - midnight - eastern.

We're backing up the information and keeping it. What that means ... it means ... if for some time in the future depending on length of time, I resurrect the forum (and if can,) those who have accounts would only need to reactivate (in theory).

I don't know the future but your info is safe with me. I will not allow anyone to have it.
The static pages will stay the same and I may occupy my time updating them, though most don't visit.

As for the tumblr, FB and Twitter - those involved ... they are yours. If I need to do something to make that more permanent ... I need to know and make it happen. Otherwise ... is what it is ... I won't be spending time on any of those platforms.

Thank you, much love to you all. I'll find a fun pic for the forum link ... Don, you don't want cats, say so now. LOL

too funny: you didn't notice that there is no year listed with the date.

Being female, I still hold my right to change my mind. LOL

That image was such a surprise - it was cute to read the non-spoilers for me until I picked it up. That will probably be my favorite issue.

Maybe the holiday spirit will visit me.

Give me something to hang on to - Rogue isn't going to cut it for me.

However, I'm learning how important this place has been for folks and I have to admit that is probably the most endearing thing I've read in some time. And the most compelling thing to keep it rolling. I like you guys/gals. Whether you post or not, if its a safe place, I like that.


I feel like, if I don't. You've called my bluff. If I do, I've taken something away. If I'm not going to be considered a nut for changing my mind then, I guess - we could revisit this whole idea.


Perhaps, I just need a break and I should add someone else to monitor it so that I can have my break from comics. That doesn't seem unreasonable.

And yeah, as I ponder this whole thing - I may edit this post a few times. LOL

Okay, here we go. 


You know, I've been posting on this forum for a long time.  I mean, how long has this place been going on for?  Definitely while I was still at university and that was REALLY long ago.  But in the past where I used to put a lot of thought into making my posts energetic and entertaining, these past few years I've just kind of stated my opinions and that was it.  And that's nothing to do with you guys, it's all to do with me just not really enjoying what has become of Marvel comics. 
Thing is, I've been lurking pretty much every day, without fail, so I still see everything that's going on, and Neko I've been going through EXACTLY the same thing as you.  The stories just don't do it for me anymore.  No more passion.  No edge.  It's just, y'know, churn out formulaic stories that they think will sell. 


So whilst I'm very sad to see this site go, I understand where you're coming from.


Thanks everybody for all the laughs, all the chats.  I'm a very different person now to who I was when I made my first ever post, lots of things have changed and happened in my life, but this place has always been a constant.  It's a good chance that this will be my last ever post on a comic book forum actually, since I'll likely never create a CBR account.  But I'll probably forever be a lurker so you'll never truly be rid of me! 


Godspeed everybody, and goodnight!

It's a relief to read another's persons view that is similar. I have a couple of rl friends who gave the hobby up long ago and for the very same reasons. Disappointment in story telling. One even joked I should change it to their favorite character (Colossus). I laughed, but it is a cute thought none the less.

I could re-purpose the forum. Broaden it in scope and still leave some Gambit things.
I think you are on twitter or I hope you are Spoonz. I think its still a good medium to keep in touch.

You can do group dm's for hobbies. I have for a few other things. Keeps the messages between certain people and keeps it off the timeline. I could do with with the Gambit twitter. I'd say talking out loud, but its more like typing. LOL

Of course those of us who have already shared emails, I hope we'll try and keep up with each other.

I'm feeling more blasé at this time.  :)

Of course I post in another thread before looking here.


Damn, bittersweet.


Of course, you know, as Murphy's Law would have it - the moment the site goes away we'll get announcements that the Gambit movie has a release date and Fabian Nicieza and James Asmus are going to team up writing a new solo with Jim Lee doing the art.


Just because.

You described the best things that can ever happen to Gambit in 1 single sentence.

Man, this would be the dream. I've always been interested in seeing how Marjorie Liu would write him in a solo, I really liked how she wrote him in the X-23 solo.

Neko, girl, I'm no one to judge (you know I gave up the J&Q after 10 yrs of it because of Marvel/Carey) so I understand. If you aren't enjoying it anymore and frankly ,  it's causing you stress, why do it?


Want to say though, this is my first comics board ever; where I did my first post; met you and Karen and Faith etc, 


It'll always be a special place to me.


I wish you nothing but the best *hugs tightly*

Thanks! *bear hugs* back.
edit: I remember when you closed J&Q - it was a blow for romys because of your love for them.
Thanks for checking in too.
