You step into a room painted all black. Dawn stands in the room, dressed in all black clothes, with a somber expression on her face.
"Welcome," she says. "Today we hold this funeral as a tribute to the great place the SAMB has been and is. Although it is closing, today we honor and remember it. The SAMB has been an amazing place and a home to me for many years. Although it is closing, we will remember it forever. Today we gather to say our good-byes to this wonderful place. We would appreciate it if you would all speak of the SAMB today and say your farewells to it. Thank you for attending."
Kind of awkward but, as you may have seen on one of my previous posts, Thread #355826, we are having a funeral for the SAMB just to say goodbye and say all of the things it means to us. I would appreciate it if you would please say a few words about the SAMB and what it means to you, kind of as a tribute to this amazing place and so we can remember what it has all meant to us. Here's mine, I guess.
The SAMB has been my home for around 5 years. While I haven't always been the best at being active, this place has always been special to me. I will never, never, forget it or any of you. This place was always kind of my go-to, whether I was just bored, sad, or lonely. Thank you to all of you who have put up with me over the years and been my friends. Although the SAMB is soon to be no more, we will all remember it. The SAMB has always been a home to all of us and we will not forget it. If you are not moving to Home Base, know that I will remember you always. Although these are hard times, we will stand together until these forums close permanently. No matter what happens, we will always carry the mark this place left on us in our hearts. This place has shaped me and made me into what I am today. Although most of us have never met in real life and are unlikely to, we are all friends who have helped each other through many hard times and have become stronger for it. If you have been here for a long time, you know what I mean when I say that we have seen a lot, with everything from wars to floods of new people to this now. Some of us have been here since this place was in beta mode and remember what it was like to watch the forums grow. While I have not been here quite that long, I know that some of you have and your names will be passed around Home Base by those of us moving as the great SAMBers who carved the way for the rest of us. Even if you were only here for days or weeks, you will also be remembered as a SAMBer. Because that is what we are. We are the SAMBers and we will always remember each other. No matter what happens, the SAMB is a part of us that can never be forgotten. Although we will grieve the closing of the SAMB, this place is a part of us. Even if you forget me someday, I won't forget you. Thank you for being here while you could.
Please tell us why you'd like to report this post
