Hey Guys, this place is like... dead.
So do we keep this site up?
Or do we just close it down, and get a 404 error?
I have pulled a list of users and email addresses.
So I can send out an email, to all involved.
But with the lack of activity, is it worth it?
I mean this is done right?
Or do we find the way to re-energize and rebuild the great community that this has been for many years?
Need input...
Somebody stand up!

I come on here every day and I keep meaning to post but then the reality of, "there are only like three people that are going to read this" hits and I'm sad to say I just end up clicking away.

We had our run and despite everything we have tried to bring more traffic here, there is less and less with each passing month. I really hate to say it, but I think our day is done. Rest assured, if the site stays up, I will still be here every day but I can't imagine we will get too many votes to keep things running.

I agree. Maybe a merge with Tater and BS should be in the works?

Of course I feel a great desire to try and "save" the group, it has been significant, and for a long time.
But the factors that brought us together are no longer there.
Most folks have moved on.
LeadFarmer and Aten are Playstation converts.
So the heart has been ripped out, there is nothing left.
Yes, a merger to more closely align with what at least several of our members have been doing for more than a year is likely.

Do we want to send out a final email blast to maybe re-energize? Or just maybe tell them they are all free to contact us at our new gig or ?

LIke I say I have a .csv of all users, former, current, etc. usernames, email addresses etc.

The biggest reticence I have in the deal is that this is a Kick Ass site, that LF and Aten built. Hate to see it wasted, but ces les vie.

I agree Browning. It's been done for awhile. It seems everyone is into different things and there is not a single title that can unite us. Ten years ago you could count the number of good FPS games on one hand now there are several.Far to many directions for people to go. To get everyone together on one title now would take an epic game and that game has yet to be invented and probably never will.

I say we all stay in touch and if you want to merge I'm cool with that. You guys shoot me your contact info and let me know where you guys are playing at. I would put out a final message and let guys like Forgotten and a few others that are really busy know what is happening.

I guess this is it. It's been a good run fella's

This is a kick-ass site those guys put together, but unfortunately, it is wasted at this point. I hate to say it, but the good old days of EX are long gone, and I do not see them coming back. I'm going to pop in to TS when I have time, but my schedule is pretty busy. It was a good run gentlemen.

Funny, I don't see it as an end. But more like evolution. We are not dead....

The core group of us is not dead. I still plan on jumping on and gaming with you guys when I can. But the "community" is gone. And this website was for the community we had. I'm not saying goodbye, I'm just saying that it may be time sunset EX and merge into another community. For the reason that I don't care about what tags we wear, as long I can still game with the guys that I have been literally gaming with for years, I'll be happy.

I thank you for the complements on the site everyone. I hate to see the community go away as it has been home for a long time now. Though I don't do much of any PC gaming anymore because I am concentrating on PS4, I still consider all of you family and friends.
