If you mean done as in "The forum is completely dead and we're no longer internet pals" then no, we aren't done. Not by a long shot. The original spirit of this site, however, I feel has died out though.

While we're no longer this huge forum that hosted 13 members online at all times, I still remember the days when we had all these very prolific members like Dark_Heroics, Drew, Hutch, Gamer, Loon, Lazer, Gelatino, Glasspinne, DarkStar, Pat, Nagho, Grofile, ArsDraconis, Shadow, Camelfox, Frikkin' Vektrix, just to name a FEW of the many, MANY members we've seen come to this site. And the truth is, I miss those days. We had a hell of a time with our old spore-related contests and RPs. I considered many of the GAC members, current as well as bygone members, my real friends, because I was able to connect and converse with you better than I ever could with my schoolmates. I know I haven't discussed this before with you guys, in fact, this might surprise the hell out of you, but when I joined this forum, I had few real-life friends, and it seemed like everyone but the friends I had hated me. I was preyed upon by my entire grade, and I suffered a lot of scars, both physical and not-so-physical. I became very, very depressed as a result. I started to eat less, and because of that, I ran into some medical complications. I seriously considered committing suicide a couple times during this part of my life, but when I remembered that I was still a part of the GAC with friends to meet and join with every day, I pushed those considerations to the side. Here, I had a selection of at least 25 people all in one place, each user different and all of which friendly and, in general, pleasant towards me. This friendly nature the website provided me is pretty much the reason I'm still here today. Luckily I'm out of that whole situation and I'm perfectly content about where I am, but hey, now you know a little bit about my 'dark backstory'. And now that I have one, I wonder if that makes me an acceptable member of the Nerrone's Rangers now- OH WAIT IT'S DEAD.

But I think the point I'm trying to get at is that this place has pushed me through the harder times, and the reason I haven't left like the members I listed above, is because I know that I can always come to this website and have an enjoyable time, whether it be a cool little chat in the GAC Chatbox or a whole coordinated night where we play games together. When I look at the GAC, I don't see a dying website, I see a place where my friends have come and gone, and I think that the ones that have left did so on good and reasonable terms, like Hutch did. Now the group is much smaller, but a smaller memberlist only means I can spend more time with each one that hasn't left, and that's exactly what all of us have been doing; spending time with each other. So, no, we aren't done here. Not by a long shot. I still have a great RP to run, with active members passionate about laying their mark on my own fiction, and Delta has a great group to host a good old-fashioned Game Night with our veteran members. We're still a very active group, it's just that we don't use the actual forum for very much anymore.

Wow that is very deep. I never knew your life was like that Terwynd. I've heard many stories about people killing themselves because of social issues such as bullying and the fact that you were able to fight that even with this place helping and supporting you is amazing.

I on the otherhand have social problems of a different kind. In real life I don't really like being around people much. I tend to push people away and I have never understood the social games people play. This has all made me a very isolated person that is overly cautiously and would rather be around other animals whether that be cats, dogs, rabits, mice, fish, insects etc. than other people.

I remember Frost invited me here and upon entering I got two PMs. One was from Frost who was kinda nagging about what I should and shouldn't do (no offence intended Frost) and the other was a welcome message from Kitty. Not long after I started posting though Kitty pretty much went all red eyes and ripping talons intent on slicing my neck. Despite all this though I have enjoyed my time here and it is quite sad that I missed most of the activity with all the moving back to Australia and stuff and then when I finally got back just about everyone else had left.
