Anyways, this topic shouldn't be about what was or wasn't said on MLK, or to compare it to Lea Halalela. This is about welcoming Vidan to our forums, because we are always glad to welcome new members!

Welcome to MLK :) It's nice to get new members here still.

Yeah, I recall discussing something to the effect of a migration to LH as a contingency when we were considering shutting MLK down, at least with a few folks. Obviously we didn't bring it to our good man Vidan since it was decided to keep the party rolling here.

How's LH doing these days, anyway? How'd you come to take the reins?

@DGFone If MLK had shut down I'm sure LH could have accommodated you guys. Yes, LH is a fairly close-knit community, but there's overlap in the memberships between the two forums, as well as others like TLKGO and Lilymud, so some "cross-pollination" is welcome and inevitable. But, I'm not here to sell you guys on it. Actually, if it had happened several months ago, we would have been in the midst of our transfer to a new server, during which there was a several week downtime, so that would have potentially affected a lot of people.

It might just be that forums aren't the ideal way for people to connect around a fandom anymore. It feels like it's mostly social media these days -- Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, etc. There's something very satisfying about a forum, though. Things just feel more ... organized, perhaps.

@Azdgari I'd say the friendships forged through LH are as strong as ever, but the forum is as dead as a doornail. The previous host decided, amicably, not to continue hosting the site and seeing as I was the only other admin with the technical know-how to migrate it to another server, I sort of inherited it by attrition. (I feel kind of like J. Michael Strackzynski's technician in the Babylon 5 series finale, just waiting for the right moment to turn off the space station lights for the last time.)

there will probably be a small surge of posts once the remake is out, assuming whoever is paying for the forums servers still wants to pay for them.

I try to keep the forum alive by making topics, but no one likes my sense of humor. I mean have you seen my recent Sarabi topic? Most of those jokes were awful! Attributing Mussolini and 1984 quotes to Sarabi is so 1994 I should be banned amirite confirm/deny.

but seriously, i dont think anything can revive this forum now short of a miracle.

i thought it was a bunch of bad blood that built up and bottled up over the years and finally went loose that destroyed mlk.

whoda thunk that a disney site for a franchise based on african animals who sing showtunes by elton john could create such a thing.

you know

the real elton john
