As you all would have noticed - GU's activity has stagnated during the late portion of June 2013 soon after our first year anniversary. Complications occurred, and eventually the forum became less and less active. I, myself, as the forum's founder too became inactive during that time and I blame myself for the forum's downfall. I sincerely apologize to all of those who made note of this.
As of this month, GU's activity has more or less stopped and I fear that the forum's "gears" will no longer cease to work with the lack of activity and new members joining. As like many small forums, I feel GamerzUniverse has reached its end...
GamerzUniverse has reached its final destination...
You guys, the community, are AMAZING. You all made us reach our one year anniversary...and this alone makes me very happy and moved. Originally, GU was nothing but a simple fun site I made for my sister MapleBerry and close friends AnimeFreak and Mr.Snap. However, you all joined and made this community a lively one. AF, Maple, Mr.Snap, and I all were very surprised to see GU's success over the year and we kept coming because of how much help you guys provided to us.
Thank you all...it means so much to me.
As time goes on...could there be something that can be done for GU? A way to revive it? Perhaps...but we've really gone through so much together, and I feel GamerzUniverse has completed its original goal of making it through a year. AnimeFreak and I have both agreed that maintaining the forum would be very hard for us at this time - we don't have the time as we used to like in the previous time. Yes...it sounds selfish, but I hope you all understand. We loved every moment we spent with you all since the very beginning. We met many people from around the globe, and we won't forget these times.
We've done our best for GU, and I hope that all of you enjoyed the journey together. We all met for one reason or the other and we talked about what the good and bad times we've all experienced. We cheered each other up, had hilarious events/times, and even settled down together during hard times. In a sense, because we were a rather small community - we bonded to each other more closely than any other forum community. It's like we were all apart of a family...a GU family.
We were like a family, it's hard to part ways...
Many forums have all closed down over time, and it seems like GU will finally be settling in for a deep sleep at this point of time. I'd like to thank each and everyone of you for all you've done for us. The staff, AnimeFreak, MapleBerry<3, Ospreyeagle, PokeZone, Mudkip, Mr.Snap, TheTrainerExpert, XKoreanLP, Bond - thank you all very much for all the help you guys did. I won't forget you guys. Special thanks to AnimeFreak for helping me develop this forum to what it is today since we first made the GU video in June 2012.
The members I fondly remember - Will, newsupermariobros, Chrom, Pokemon73, Giratina720, Shining Star, Eliza, Hylia, Dalek, KyngzIndeyen, Shiny Star, Dustin<3 Ami, Pop, Superdill, Fluffiness~, Viet-Chan, and more. Thank you all so much for the activity you all provided over time.
For additional questions, GU will continue to remain here - however, it will be closed for additional posting (asides from this topic) and will remain offline as a forum. You can continue to look up our forum archives for your favourite topics, but we will remain closed as a community.
It's hard to forget the work you've all done to make this forum grow, so thank you all. It might be just a forum, but it's been more than that to me. It's even come close to saving my life once...truth be told thanks to the chatbox. I'll occasionally be available on Skype if you ever want to reach me or my email. I will also be found residing at the Animal Warriors Universe forum at the times I'm available, a similar forum that will be focusing on gaming topics soon.
Consider this forum as GU's successor. I may not always be there, but this is a forum that you all can enjoy in as it grows.
Anyways, I guess this is goodbye... We had a nice run, and I hope you guys all enjoyed GamerzUniverse! I'm satisfied for making the one year anniversary, that was my goal. Nintendo forums have been on a decline as of recently, but I'm glad that we met up to the expectations during our run. Thank you again everyone, till we meet again.
Farewell GamerzUniverse... (05/02/12 - 07/30/13)
Evolution Master, the founder
