Well that's just sad I think. I understand that decision through I would have hoped for some warning instead of fatalitism, but hey, it's their business. Let's wait for MetalAges' answer and hope this was only a serious warning. And also goodbye everyone if it all really closes. I don't think I'd join other forums after... and to be honest I had a really good time here during the last years. Guess I will be able to use my time in a more useful and constructive way. Still unexpected. Cya ffs. EDIT : I find it intriguing how Mikael's decision to close the forum happens to be at (almost) the same moment Opeth are starting their 2-3 years break. There's plenty of constructive things here and even with the trollings, everyone appreciate this place. If the forum stays I think it would probably go better but again everyone need to be more strict with themselves MetalAges said and as Samsara explained below; we all have our part of responsibilities if it is closed and it if doesn't happen, let's hope we'll all have our lessons.
