    All of my feelings have already been echoed here by people who are better with words than I. I would be really sad to see the place go. Mostly what stu said about the central hub, I would miss that most of all. But I dont want to ask you to cart all this weight around just for our fond memories. Like Sam I would grieve, but someday this place will have to go.

    I didn't get much sleep last night and am pretty much half asleep right now, so hopefully this makes sense. I wasn't here as long as some, but I still consider EoFF a big part of my life. I was probably most active here when I was feeling at my most depressed and alone, and this place really helped me in those times. I made friends that helped shape who I am now, and I also had a ton of fun with all of the events that happened back then. The Ciddies, the April Fool's Day pranks... I also enjoyed my short stint on staff. I have a lot of fond memories of this place, and I'm certainly glad I found my way to this forum however long ago. It's not really too active anymore though, and a lot of the familiar users are practically gone. Those who are still around for the most part are in the Discord. I'd be lying if I said I wouldn't miss this place, but I also don't really post on here much anymore. I tend to get on Discord since it seems more active most of the time.

    In any case, I will echo what I think most everyone else said that you shouldn't just hold onto this place for our sakes. I would be wary if I were in your position just because of the EU laws. I don't really know or understand those laws; so, I don't really know how much work it would be to keep this website up to par. I'd also not like that it was running on basically dead software. I personally also wouldn't be able to justify the monthly payment. I'd be sad to see it go, but I probably wouldn't keep it running in your position. Hopefully if you decided that, someone else would be able to step up and take over the site for you. Or maybe other people have some ideas to make running the site more doable.

    In any case, if you decide to shut this place down, we should definitely have one final hurrah. Maybe we could somehow try to contact a bunch of the old guard to try to get them here to make the forums feel like they have the activity levels of its golden age. Maybe we could have one final Ciddies or an event along those lines (if anyone would even want to anymore). In any case, it would be fun to just bring a bunch of people back if we could make it work.

    Yes, the Discord isn't going anywhere.

    Would probably look to revamp a little bit to make it even more of an awesome place since it'd no longer be the Official Discord Server for the EoFF Forum (which allows for a bit more of a simple set up), it would be EoFF ostensibly.

    Yeah.

    Having a think of things concerning the GDPR side of things.

    It's possible you could have a mass email to members stating "You're registered with EOFF, unless you object to us keeping your personal data which we hold for XYZ reasons we will continue to do so. Please note under GDPR you have access to the 8 rights (list them and specify you aren't looking to sell data). If you do this you should be able to claim that non-response/objection to keeping the data is consent. Not 100% sure of this.

    If the above works it should allow you to keep threads older than 2 years too but I would both as a precaution and a size management delete attachments in those threads.

    I've been on a huge nostalgia run and it ended with me reading some of the posts from my most active years and I say we bite the bullet and just let this place burn before someone finds out how weird I was
