With our recent warm welcome to many Spice Girls fans on Buzzjack due to the potential closure of their forum, it got me thinking what life would be like without Buzzjack...

The first thing I'd do is run and save all my personal charts because I don't have them stored anywhere else. Obviously, the best thing would be all migrating to another forum but it would be weird starting somewhere new with people that already frequent that forum plus it would be a huge shame if not everybody followed and we lost some regulars from here. I think I have a fair few of you on various forms of social media so I'd definitely try and keep in touch but I check this pkace daily no matter what so life would definitely be weird without having it here.

Obviously, this is all hypothetical ! I don't think Buzzjack is in any danger of being shut down ?!? laugh.gif

Buzzjack backup site magic.gif if one of the mods actually accepted my registration

I don't know honestly, I'd try and find a way of creating a new forum from scratch, we do seem like such a massive community to jump on a plane and go to another forum, I could see us probably drowning them out laugh.gif I would need somewhere to discuss the charts though.

I guess this already happened back in the day when people had to migrate from CoolClarity to BuzzJack!

I really hope this does not happen for a long time, BuzzJack is most definitely my favourite site to browse and I check it daily. I love the community, moderating The Lounge and the things that make this place what it is - from BJSC to Michelle McManus stanning. I would be quite gutted to lose this site and all its history (I do often look back at old threads like past BJSC final results or popularity contest results when I'm bored) but I guess we'd just have to move somewhere else. I really feel for the DenDen people, 'cause being in their shoes I would hate to have to start afresh.

I wouldn't be too bothered. I have pretty much had enough of this website anyway recently and am only staying here for a few small reasons.

Can you STOP with this massive over-reaction just because the Darius forum closed? Seriously, nobody else is complaining and a month ago you didn't ever post in it - the reason it closed was because in the long term, it was inactive, not because the mods are power-hungry or whatever. The mods are normal humans on an online forum, not monsters like you've been making out.

Changing your username to 'HatedOnBuzz-Jack' and being under the impression you'll finish last in Buzzrate JUST because some people got pissed at your obsession with the Darius forum isn't going to solve anything, I think you'll find that a majority of Buzzjack don't hate you, and it's still the same website it's been since you joined with the exception that a small inactive forum is in the Retro Lounge, so plz stop acting like everything's turned upside down and Buzzjack has become an elaborate ploy to rake in money and users.

I'm just not finding this website as fun as it used to be sadly, not because of that forum closing/ arguments about it but just the Lounge is a bit of a mess again with threads like AWWWWWWWWW and Mufti Day and I don't really feel like posting there much any more sadly.

The Mufti Day thread was a genuine discussion/query on my part but whatever... laugh.gif

Yeah Mufti Day is hardly a spam thread! laugh.gif it's quite an interesting topic to bring up when so many people didn't even realise it was a thing.

I changed my original post, I realized it wasn't and I worded it wrongly. I guess I have just become a bit demoralised recently on here.

Snake, if you think that the lounge is spam filled, you are of course welcome to post your own threads and contributions in order to redress the balance smile.gif

On the actual topic: I think I'd be kinda lost if Buzzjack shut! laugh.gif In terms of my free time that is. I'd probably just migrate to another forum but it wouldn't be the same. I guess I'd have to do a mass personal chart back-up spree like Josh! laugh.gif

we'd all have to migrate to the same forum, possibly a brand new one - it just wouldn't be the same without the Buzzjack regulars and the community spirit unique to this forum.

I really hope this doesn't happen though, and I think at least for the foreseeable future we should be more than fine. The new site will come sometime in the next 5 years (probably!!) so it's not like the site is in danger of dying at the moment.

'If BUZZJACK ITSELF were to shut down...' teas tongue.gif

Actually going to re-read what I said in that thread which was before my leave off the site (almost 2 years ago now!) and compare it to what I'll right now *.*

QUOTE('Spadgemobile @ Sep 21 2015, 09:35 PM) *
Seeing as one of the most popular Buzzjack-related but not Buzzjack communities, plug.dj, may well be saying goodbye and becoming unplugged, I wonder, if BUZZJACK ITSELF were to go, tomorrow, next week, next year, how would you cope? Would it be easy for you? Would it be sad to lose connection with so many people on here that you would have no other way of contacting?


I don't think I actually made a proper response to my own thread... :') but nowadays I'll probably force myself into something else. Probably still on the internet kink.gif it's pretty much just the wide variety of members that make it a nice place so jumping ship to a new forum would be ok (as long as it doesn't miss the main features or the shoutbox)
