In rememberance of Avatar Forums
 
If AF has truly gone down for good I think it deserves to be sent away in honor. Some form of gratitude for what it has brought us. Without it TOS would not exist. While avatar may have been what sparked the creation, we the fan's, the friends who inhabited it made it a home.

It brought us together, and without it the majority of us would not know each other.

I suggest instead of mourning its loss, we celebrate it's life. Since we cannot get together physically and give it a 21 gun salute I suggest and think it would be truly amazing if we could dedicate the banner at the Top of the TOS screen to avatar forums and the amazing times it has brought us for a short while.

This would be in no way a form of advertising seeing as how the site is gone and that It has meant so much to so many of us that it deserves our respect and honor.

I'm not sure exactly what It could say, Something around "In honor of the late great Avatar-Forums, you will be missed but not forgotten" or something like that. I'm sure all of the community could pull together to give suggestions of what should be on the memorial banner. After all like my good friend Matt said in a thread a posted earlier about AF, We the community are what made that place a home, we should be the one's who pull together and celebrate it's short but amazing life.

Any input would be appreciated. I truly think AF is gone it deserves a tribute of epic proportion.

An honorable and noble suggestion Neytiri. I say it shall be done :)

Eltu 12-07-2010 10:02 AM

Agreed.

Not until we are sure of Avatar-forums' fate though. ;)

All that is certain is that my account has been suspended for "massive resource usage ".

Sacred Tsahaylu 12-07-2010 10:59 PM

It isn't just your account. It's the actual forums usage on the server.

You seem to have resigned it to the gallows however it could still rise from these metaphorical ashes. Have hope peeps

Indeed, 'your account' is referring to the forums' hosting account. Forums are CPU-intensive and shared hosting or a low end VPS is not enough to cope with anything other than a small forum.

Anyway - Neytiri. , good idea. There is already a thread of memories from AF, which already has some very personal experiences and memories on it, I like the idea of something IF it becomes obvious that AF is gone, although for now, I understand that they are working to move it to a new host.

very good point with out AF, well idk bc i really can not think how it would have been with out it! after first seeing the movie and how it made me feel was huge. then knowing that there were others like me was a great feeling. if the site is really gone, that is sad. i remember when i first joined.

the site was active every hour of the day. lol you posted something up and with in sec someone commented. you could post a 100 comments in one day easily. really miss those days :(

Loverofnature 01-01-2011 01:19 PM

btw AF is working for me now :)

Wow... I just went there and looked back into all of my old messages there... This is truly a gem, despite all the changes happening in AF right now. Without that forum, ToS wouldn't have existed, especially not without the help of our special moderators and admins here. You are right Neytiri., totally right... I'm truly grateful.. It almost brought a tear to my eye and touched my heart.. Thank you for this. :) *hugs*

Oel ngati kameie, my brothers and sisters...

Ja'k Dawsiin 08-02-2015 06:46 PM

i spent nearly 5 years there, over 14,000 posts, met lots of interesting net personas and fans of the great Avatar Experience, and shall miss it dearly. rest in peace, AF :( now, i am a refugee looking for a new home...

CyanRachel 08-02-2015 08:02 PM

Well, welcome (back?) to ToS, Forest Goddess! Glad to have you here. :)

Yeah, it's a shame that AF had to shut down -- I liked that site a lot.
Hopefully one day it'll return....maybe when the sequel films are released? :(

Yeah its sad that AF went down but hey we can set up shop here and wait for things to pick up again.

But it wasn't like this thing wasn't on the horizon for a while

Avatar-Fora is no more! I suggest we take over this place with the Avatar-related topics and sexual innuendo.

The ToS community in a nutshell. :P (Or maybe just the ToS IRC... back in the day, anyway...)

I've never had much of a presence on the forum, but it would be fantastic to see this place liven up again.

It seems to me that there are several options for resolving this event, based on what happens next with A-F.


1) If A-F is sold to another party and dismantled or otherwise destroyed, the members who were active there could come here and participate. A-F and ToS are more similar than A-F and Learn Na'vi, so it would probably work.

2) If we can get HNM or someone else to obtain archives and other content/materials from A-F and merge it with ToS, we could have old discussions, photo threads, and other important items from the early days of our community (yours truly has some old posts there under an alternate alias...) in a safe place to be archived away.

3) Someone outright buys all of A-F and restores it to normal, minus the useless garbage that Lon tried to shove into it. Alternatively, A-F could be bought and merged with ToS for improved interconnectivity, but these options are supposed to be for the benefit of members of that community, and they should have the final say.

Numbers two and three are arguably the best options, but make no mistake; A-F went down because Lon is an incompetent, greedy ****stain, and not because of something he couldn't control. Our forums/website hasn't had any funding problems yet, and we haven't shoved the donation button in user's faces or filled all the empty space on the side panels with ads.
