Extreme update

Adam and I regret to inform you all that Minions of the Watch is being shut down due to inactivity.

There are only 5-8 active members on our forum. Until we can bring in more members, we have decided to shut it down.

The date of the shutdown is April 11, 2009.

Sorry Minions, keep it real  Confused
The Wicked One

Well counting you, Adam, TheWickedOne, Feanis, Kanadwen, The Sexiest Metalhead, etc, there's 5-8.

And yeah guys this isn't a joke. This is for real. We decided we'd keep the forum open until the 11th just in case new members decided to join between now and then and stay active.

Its been a good few years Minions.

WHATTTTTTT  NAH!!!! Sad where  i will said my opinion about iced earth and other bands Sad
Feanės

guys, this are indeed very sad news, it really makes me sad, 'cause this forum was one of the best I've been in.
You know I'm writing from my rehab right now, which should show you, how important it is to me, but since you two made a desicion, it is too late to change.

Well anyway, I hope we will gather more minions and reopen this forum. I will also try to get some of my friends and people, to sign on and be part of the minions.

Is the forum being paid for? If so, I could understand shutting down, if it's a free one (which I would assume it is on mff.org), why close it? No one is paying for it, so no harm done.

Kinda hard to take this seriously when it posted on Apirl 1st tho Wink I could see ya'll comin back on the 11th going AHHA APIRL FOOLS!

Shit ... april 11th is my birthday ... I'll try to convert some of my friends to keep this forum alive ...
Kanadwen

Damn it guys, is this true or not? It's driving me crazy, and is gonna reflect a decision to plop down the money for the official IE board, which I haven't yet because of MotW.
paranoidmexican

the official board sucks ass

and yep, were shutting it down
Feanės

well, this forum was much better than the official one.
I'm gonna miss it Sad
Shorty

That sucks...This was (what am I talking about??? it IS!!!) an awesome forum (even if I was not posting very often) These are really sad news, but I hope we'll be able to reopen it soon. Guys I'll miss you all Sad

I think like Kanadwen.
okey maybe there aren't much online member but we are sharing lot of thing, about IE or not. in my opinion it must be continue..
Kanadwen

Hand the forum over to me, hell, I'll even move everything onto my own server, thecomingcurse.com/forums for MotW! There's no reason to close it!!!!!!!!!

if the official board sucks ass what can we as members do here to keep this place afloat?

need money? make me an admin or whatever and I'll help with all the stuff I got from here it would be worth it.


btw We have at least 10 posters here in the last month.

Iced Earth is not touring at the moment so news and IE related topics will lower. That means overall number posters will lower.

Just wait for some groundbreaking news an it will bring about some major stuff.

Demons & Wizards may be the closest IE related news for a while.
Can't we just wait it out?
Kanadwen

Don't worry guys, if they are really shutting down I'll prep up my website for the new MoTW forum, I might not be able to name it MoTW due to mexicano or anybody else not wanting it, but damn it I'll bring it back!

yeah dude, you can be sure I am there when you do it!
3DD13

Yep ! Great idea . I thought to do something like that, but I don't  really have the time in these days ... I give you my e-mail adress, and please write me when you open the new forum ...
That's very sad to shut this board down ... It's the only place where I can talk 'bout this fucking band ...
Kanadwen

Been talking to my server provider about it and he says everything will be go if it does happen. It will probably take about a week to setup, just because of his busy schedule. All pre-existing MotW members will be moderators, and all current admins/moderators will be able to keep their status. As for the name MotW, it's up to mexicano or whoever to let us know if we can use it, if not I'm sure we can all vote on a new one.
Shorty

Well these are good news, I hope that everyone who is here now will be also in the "new" forum (and I hope I'll get my own internet soon, so I can post more often)

Guys, this is my last post for the next two weeks, I'm gonna go to Crete, Greece and I hope to see this forum still up when I'm coming back. Please don't disappoint me, ok? Neutral
Kanadwen

Any new updates yet?
The Sexiest Metalhead

Hmm... I missed this thread.

Is this actually going to happen? That would really piss me off... a lot.

It's pissing me off because it was posted on Apirl's Fools but the admins swear it's true, which is stupid since it's on a freeforum site. Oh, and I missed to mention that they haven't even said anything for a while.
The Sexiest Metalhead

Yeah, I believe it's a joke as well.
Feanės

if it IS a joke, somebody is goin' to die   Twisted Evil

I think that it isn't a joke, I think they just wanted to make us post more
Tainted Innocence

Tainted Innocence

fineee
Stormrider

I missed this thread too. Hmm, they haven't emailed me or anything about shutting down. If it is true well rest assured I will join the other one. I haven't posted in a while since my engagement announcement. Oh well sorry about being a little inactive here too.
Kanadwen

Ok, there is no stopping the motion of the new site going up. We haven't heard anything from mexicano about anything, so here's whats up:

1.) The new site will be hosting on my website, http:///www.thecomingcurse.com/motw or .com/forums .

2.) Every current member of MotW will receive some form of moderation, and current moderators will be upgraded to admins, and current admins will keep their status.

3.) I need contact information of everybody who wishes to stay on the new forum, just e-mail me or reply to this post with your email.

As of right now, I'm going to keep the MotW name, I'll gladly change it once we actually receive word if we can use it or not, we could change it to like Welcome to The Dimension Gauntlet or some shit if we have to.

So, e-mail me or give me some sort of contact information so if the site does go down on the 11th, I'll have a way in contacting you regarding your new account on the new site. Also, if you'd like, go ahead and bookmark http://www.thecomingcurse.com/ and I'll have a link to the forums on there.
paranoidmexican

it was a joke, calm down. delete that shit before i go up there and bitch slap you.

you really think i'd close this badass site down?

silly rabbit

(sorry ben, i couldn't hold it any longer)

You can see how we're linked to this board Very Happy
Kanadwen

Fuck this. That was fucking stupid. There was no reason for ya'll to fucking do that, and I fucking knew it.  Straight up poor and lame in taste too. One of you could of fucking sent me a God damned PM saying so, but no, you had to do this shit. I spent a lot time on the new forums, and paid my webmaster, now all that gone to waste because of you two fucking dickheads. I can't fucking believe you two did that.

I first said this, someone could of messaged me and said you got it just shush.

Me CLEARLY stating that I'm working on something, another opportunity to fucking message me and tell me about it.

Before talking to my webmaster again, I tried to see if I could get another word about it, but no, nothing.

This and other messages from other members of the community worried about the fucking forum closing down, and still you two fucking hide in the corner about it.

Me clearly stating that it could be an April's Fools joke, but still no message to confirm it or to tell me to be quiet. So I went ahead and set up final stages with my webmaster.

Then mexicano posts his fucking bull shit. And no, this forum isn't badass, it fucking sucks, ads everywhere, the same boring fucking layout, it fucking sucks. What makes the forum good, is the community, and good sirs, you just fucking took a big steaming wet ass shit on them. Very poor taste guys. I'm so close in just fucking leaving this forum now and joining, apparently the shitty official one, but I'm not going to because of THE COMMUNITY here.  Just keep in mind my thoughts about mexicano and SetAbo has changed completely.
Set Abominae

Look Kanadwen, how much did it fucking cost, if you're honestly that pissed about it I'll send you a reimbursement. It's my bad. I came up with the joke because I couldn't think of anything else to do. It's not Adam's fault at all, he just went along with it.

Look, we apologized, we're sorry, this forum isn't going away. If you're honestly that pissed about it PM me your address and the cost and I'll send it. Honestly, I will.

If this gets too out of hand it'll be locked. We said our piece and our apologies, guys. If you're mad about it, well, you have every right to be, but if you're gonna be a dick about it......well I'll just keep my feelings to myself this time.

Thought it was only you who did? I understand what ya'll did was a joke, I knew it was going to be a joke, but to ignore me like that was cruel. No need to reimburse me, if anything use that money to move the forum to a decent host. Sorry if I'm being a dick but what'd you expect?

Edited my post. I'm the one who apologized but it was my fault initially anyway [check edited post]
Kanadwen

Apology accepted.
paranoidmexican

lets have "i'm sorry baby" sex kanadwen. to show my good faith i'll let you pick the lube. honest

<3

but seriously, we are sorry. and if you really think this site sucks then you're more than welcome to leave. also, use adblock, works a charm on those annoying ads.

moving to another server.....to be honest i have no clue on how to do that. shit man, i don't even remember how to modify this site...haha i'm a terrible admin Sad

oh, and this thread is locked
paranoidmexican

unlocked, lets hear it kanadwen
Kanadwen

:O your a poopoo diarrhea face.
The Wicked One

XD...this gonna be locked again?
Set Abominae

Who knows

If people behave then it'll stay open

If we get direct flames it'll be closed.

It's just policy guys. If it was in any other thread it'd be the same way. We're not doing it because our feelings are hurt, no way! Why would our feelings be hurt?  Confused   Razz
Kanadwen

I think calling someone a poopoo diarrhea face is a pretty offensive situation. btw, thx for the I love men title, thought it was really mature.
paranoidmexican

you had that damn title for a long time so don't give me that bull shit. the whole thing was a fucking joke, there was no need for you to start bitching. ben told you he would re-imburst you for your money spend and i will do the same if you really want it. Now your just pissing me off with your bitching and whining, so if you don't like the way I run things and you think it my forum looks like shit your more than welcome to leave, infact i'll start you off with a nice ban. have a nice day Smile
