Since the thread on this article is closed ElseWhere, I thought it would be nice to post a link to the overland article here too in case anybody wants to discuss it. I thought it was a lovely tribute.
I was surprised by how saddened I.was by the closing of the site. That is such a well written article.
Reading that article again has made me a bit teary today. I am so glad the article was written, to acknowledge what we’ve lost. I am still confused as to why eb forum was closed just after undergoing a major upgrade.
OnFire I don’t know much about the technical side of these things, but it almost makes me wonder if it was in such a state that it required an upgrade that big to actually ‘pull the plug’ on it in the first place, so to speak.
I still feel sad about it, all those stories gone.
Remember Julia who had the blog Five Fellas and a Fairy and wrote a book about her cancer diagnosis? It would have been nice for her posts to be there for her girls to see if they wanted to one day.
that article was so well written
put a lump in the throat and rose anger about nueb and how poorly run it is
squeekums It was bizarre reading it, already being emotional about the article and then literally finding out EVERYTHING all in the space of minutes…
Peppermint-Velvet yeah it was like online life implosion
@Elf … here it is 😊
Heyho2 thanks hey ho!
Thank you CallMeAl. I just read it again. Every time I read it, I feel emotional. Very well written. I’m glad it was written. I bet Jules would have written one too.
