Truly the end of an era - it was 'ere where I got my start in the business. Granted, that was pre-The Media Team. Heck, it was pre-Dennis...
That meaning the forums etc are going as well?
That's it? End of Hexus and Bit
Where are we all going to meet in future??
I don't do FB and all that
Well, it was fun while it lasted. Thank you bit-tech, thank you everyone that watched/read my reviews, huge thanks to @MLyons for being a shoulder to cry on and a wall to vent at. It's been emotional.
I've just added an amend for that. The forums, site and discord are staying
I long assumed bit-tech would disappear once it was subsumed into Hexus but I never expected it to go down this way. Let's just say, there is no way buyers could not be found for both.
I was just about to burst into tears. My first log in over three years and you close and bugger off
Happy that the forums will remain. As said, this place is a part of my life.
We could have easily found a buyer but look at what other publications have become when sold out to the highest bidder. Click bait farms with bought articles. We owe ourselves and the readers more than that.
As ex-editor of the site and close friend of the founders of the site, I respectfully disagree.
Thanks @MLyons, that is a comfort. I've only been on here 10 years, as a refugee from CPC and it's been great.
I feel I have a second family here.
Been good seeing you on YT Andy @The_Crapman
If that's the case then you know who to contact . We just wanted to do what was right in the amount of time available.
That's a shock to the system! I'm glad the forums and site are both staying though
Where are all the staff heading to then? Not that I plan on stalking any of you to wherever of course
BTW. Just so this is out there. I am perfectly up to helping out with hosting charges and so on and so forth. Please don't close the forum without giving us the option as a community to keep it running.
I'm tearing up as I say this, but seriously thinking a little more into it this place has changed my life. My whole new life I built three years ago was started by this, and I now have the most amazing and incredible friends I have ever had IRL due to this place. They are literally my life now.
I turn my back for a second and...
Don't go. I will have no more internet. Even social media is just Indian guys pretending to be my family.
We can't yet talk about this but it will be public soon
We plan to never close down the site and forums. If we ever do need to then we will do whatever is needed to give it to the community.
The forums will still be here
I do wonder how this can be sustained without ads...
So long and thanks for all the fish
Ah shame, a quick check shows I've been a member here for the past 17 years! In reality I was lurking the website since the first Orac3 article though. Good luck to the staff going forward
