The Bleemcast forum is closing.

Here lies the historical and much-loved bleemcast! forum, once frequented and moderated by Rand Linden himself, preserved for future generations to enjoy. All new bleemcast!-related posts should be made in the main forum below.

The Bleemcast forum is closing.

Post by Dr Zoidberg » Sun Jan 27, 2002 1:39 am

Yes it's true, the Bleemcast forum will be closing 7 days from now. It was awhile coming but it had to happen eventually. :(

The majority of posts in here will probably be merged in with the DC Emulation & Homebrew Games Forum, although that issue hasn't been completely ironed out yet in the staff forum.

Well, if you tell us which topics you want moved, we should be able to... Not too many though, we don't want to flood the main forum...

If I move them, I'll change the title of the topic to:
"BLEEM:topic name"
so that it can be indentified in the main forum.

Oh, and btw, you better belive I got that quote :mrgreen:

They won't be deleted, there's an option on the admin panel that'll let me merge it with the DC emulation forum & all the posts will be placed in there by date, so they won't be all jammed up at the top.

Some of the more important topics will probably be moved to the secret super special staff area though. :lol:

I wonder if we can salvage Captain Skyhawk's FAQ, fix it all up, then put it on the main page.

It will answer almost all the newbie questions (we'll have to make and delete some more.) but it would be a useful topic to have.

Well I still maintain that I am working on the definitive postmortem Bleem FAQ but it's taking a little while longer than expected :)

:cry: What a sad news... I hoped this forum never died and... if it did, it died the with this site. I tought we could keep it up as the only respect we could show for Bleem. But that isn't happening. :x


As for the FAQ. When Rand was still posting here (remember that?! This was the only forum on the whole internet where the creator of Bleem posted, is that not something to not close it down yet?) I really kept all his answers in the FAQ. Until the time that MGS was released (at that time I had no internet) and I saw a lot of questions popped up. It's a shame that isn't in the FAQ, but I tought Schanpple made a mini FAQ of it. Also some answers where only in the old forum (deleted now) wich I don't have a copy of. If we have all the that the normal FAQ is complete. Than we could add some general stuff about Bleem to make it complete. I think it's best to wait what Schnapple made so far. I really hadn't any time for it lately.

It's a shame to see this forum go, but if you guys say it's for the best then you'll see no arguing from me. :)

Couldn't you just change the name of the Forum to PSX on DC or something and that way it could include Bleem and maybe even Blur if all goes well. :D

Couldn't you just put a big lock on the whole forum and just keep it whole... i mean just make it an archive where nobody could post.. except for the Bleem FAQ.
