Memories of SFF

05 January 2018 - 08:14 AM

I thought I should share a random memories from the time on SFF. 

 

Henkes Tongue - I always enjoyed his posts, although at times i did struggle to understand his point. He has a future in creative writing im sure.

 

I remember that Black Dog used to tell us about trimming his hedge at the bottom of the garden, which we all knew was just a reason to check out the scenary. I remember (i'm not sure why) even drawing a picture of him and posting it in here. 

 

I've forgotten the name of the member who used to post some stats on basketball games. it was really detailed, but i don't think anyone ever understood it.

 

Geo's quiz. Geo had some strong views, but starting up the quiz brought some fun to the site and also gave some money to charity.

 

The spotify playlists - I don't know who started it, but johnarob and jaybee were both active participants of the themed spotify playlists. oh, and grumpy.

 

Did I ever mention that I received an offer to buy the site about 4-5 years back? I can't recall how much it was, but it was something like $1000. they wanted to change the site to a generic football forum with me staying on as admin. I told them no, obviously.

 

I remember being threatened with legal action one time because a member didn't appreciate me pulling them up about something they said. It also included an offer of a pint.


Closing the doors

11 December 2017 - 08:25 PM

Over the last few weeks and months I have not been able to commit the time that the forum and members deserve. I have therefore come to the decision that the forum will close within the next few weeks.
 
I have immensely enjoyed the forum over the years. Yes it can be tough when having to act as an admin, but the good times far outweighed those moments and for that I thank everyone (mostly everyone) who has been a part of the forum. 
 
I've enjoyed running the predictor and taking part. I've even enjoyed dishing out the prizes, which sometimes came from my own pocket. I was rubbish at predicting myself, but that didn't matter to me.
 
It's just unfortunate that I have to make this decision, but I feel it's the right one. I'm not sure when the forum will close, but it will happen in the next few weeks. I will probably leave the PM function open for a little longer than that, but i've not got the exact details ironed out.
 
Thank you all for being part of the forum, especially to those that have been here for so long.
