    I think we're looking at a party of 20, where it was 50 wedding / <200 reception. All that matters is the person you love at the end of the day if my sister wanted to run off with 2 random witnesses i'd still support her. Its wild to think she booked this wedding in march 2018 and we didn't have a notion of what was coming

    my sister is supposed to be getting married on the 11th September, but I think shes cancelling/downsizing. One of her best friends and myself are super high risk (shes had cancer and i've got all sorts lol). I didn't ask her to but she says she'd never forgive herself if we got covid19. Such a bummer.
  7. The death of forums

    The social media cogs turn 24/7 and arguments spin out of control so easily. Admin teams have to exist across timezones and be very active to see shit going down. I admin a group on FB and i'm not getting paid to sit there and babysit some idiots arguing about nonsense. I also agree with the dislike for super threads. Definitely sucks in a lot of content that could easily have their own threads.

    I think all the sub forums in Gen got merged due to inactivity. I remember one particular mafia game where i hoodwinked you all mwahahahahahahahhaha (i also did not realise you were Dazz/animal either lol)
  13. The death of forums

    This place was a huge social hub for me for a good 5 years of my life. @soag made me join in the days of CE (2005ish) and i actually met someone from my own town here @darksnowman who became a good friend of mine, and as a result @My Buttons are Magic! and I are best of friends to this day. And a big shoutout to all the people i met in the Sheffield 2008 meet, and even the friends I have that I've never met. I smashed my kneecap on the escalator on the way home after that meet and only 10 years later did it really heal lol I have been pestering lots of people to come back and join in and hopefully we can get some conversation going again I think a lot of us joined in our teens/twenties and have grown up and had massive changes in our lives, marriage, kids, etc and found ourselves with less time to fuck around online. I took a min to google and found the thread that offerman posted:
  14. The death of forums

    I'm gonna bite the bullet and make a thread and get some conversation going... I was pondering this for a while, since this forum and a few others have really shrunk down in activity over the past... 5/10 years? I also used to go on a diet forum that was even busier than this place in its hayday, and its also pretty destitute now. I think our habits have changed and forums just aren't designed as well to work in the mobile tech space. Things like facebook, twitter etc seem to have taken over the discussion space online... RIP bring back the forum and msn messenger days.... lol Thoughts?
