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

I woke up to some unexpected bad news for sure. I found this site so many years ago. It's so sad to see it die  :'(

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.

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:

Unfortunate but understandable. Thanks for keeping it going for as long as you did, Neko

Neko, choose what it is the best for you. Everyone deserves to be happy and do things that they love ;)


All messages and situation reminded me this video of Friends Ending.

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.

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.
