Like Alucard and Seska i'm also packing up. My reason is because this place have changed a lot. Too much fanboys running around. Too much X Console is better than X console... too much Nintendo is number 1 no matter what you say, too much Sony is number 1 no matter what you say, too much MS is number 1 no matter what you say, too much Nintendo this, too much Sony this, too much MS this. Too much for ATMA.

I've learned a lot during the +2 years i've been around, definitely learned how to expand my horizons and have learned how other people think and experience games. I've met some of you outside the forums (instant chat programs) which was really fun and also a great experience and ofcourse we will keep in touch. Tons of people I have respect for their viewing and tons of people have shown me respect for my viewings. I've also seen a lot of humor on this forum and it helped me a lot when I was down. I'm one of those people who like to laugh a lot and this forum made me do that especially when I needed it (real life can be hard some times/ most of the time). Anyways guys and girls, goodluck with everything and keep it chilling.

Wow a lot of older membets leaving. I noticed this place has changed but I figuered the new people won't stay long or things will start to calm down.

Well take care ATMA, it was nice knowing you.

Take care ATMA! Thanks again for Suikoden! We'll have to share a pint one of these days, because I got a good deal. :P

Peace out.

Uh oh. I see a trend.... cool people leaving! This also happened at OverClocked ReMix.

Ombra.. why are you posting so much? You just registered and have over 150 posts, more than 11.5 posts per day, and are already fighting with the mods. Why?

2 things..

1. boredom (i'm at work)
2. not really fighting the mods..disagreed with certain methods..but thats past,things seem about even now.. i guess the sig isn't needed..

I agree with Juste. these members will end up leaving since we normally end up flaming them :D. If you guys keep leaving has well, then they will gain strenght...
Its a pity to see you leave ATMA. You were one of the members i sympathised with the most. Its your decision though. I just hope to see you back one day :)

take care.

assuming youre still around to read this, i believe the theorum runs as follows:

Over time, as a message board increases in membership, so to does the chance that it will attract attention from posters who flood boards with repetitive, unenlightened and antagonistic commentary. The potential then for the few moments of intelligent commentary to be lost or hijacked increases exponentially in relation to increased membership. Eventually, all boards are either consumed by this flood or shut down.

I don't know anyone here really, but I have appreciated your posts in my time here, and your absence will certainly leave a noticeable void in the MagicBox Forums. Take care and have fun wherever you happen wander off to. :)

Way to jump on the bandwagon, man :P

There were chumps on these boards for a long time (same reason I left about a year ago), but it's not like there's a better place around (that's why I'm back :P). Undoubtably, the best times here were the earliest ones; thing's have a tendency to collapse once they get too big (anyone remember that one empire, Rome, I think it was called?).

Have fun on the rest of the internet

It's really sad to see you go ATMA. You were probably my closest friend on the board. I'll miss you a lot. You do have a point though, there are too many fanboys and idiots on these forums. Back when I joined 2 years ago it was really fun, but now I hardly ever post, because it simply isn't fun anymore.

Jeeze, I'll probably leave myself, this place is too different without Seska, Alucard, and ATMA. With them gone, we have less people to deal with the morons and fanboys at this place, and letting the idiots wipe each other out just wont work.

It was great getting to know you over MSN Messanger ATMA, take care.

Just one silly stupid question before you go;

It's been fun knowing you. You're truly are a passionate gamer, Love to read your point of view all the time .

Argh...this hurts.

Sheesh, the way to deal with idiots is simply to ignore them and then make good posts of your own.

Even though I met them all on the opposite side of a political debate, I learned to respect Atma, Seska, and Alucard. But I can't say I respect their supposed reasons for leaving.
