had a rough 4 years now trying to do this all by the lonesome of just a few people developing for it, with no funding or capital.
had a BAD issue with trolls that drove away pretty much everyone
had an original idea for a site that has been copied immensely over the years, I feel sorry for the owners here that had the light shine on them for such a short time.
now... yea 2011 - onward and upward I say always keep your head high and your spirits bright. No matter the outcome. Remember, it's just... THE GAME
it always brings a smile to my face playing that... game.
But yes everyone goes through rough patches... some recover, some don't
i myself have hung onto this place from damn near the start of it, April 13th 2008 (public beta - no point x's 2
) was my join date. I have loved every minute of being here and to watch new ideas spring to life and new features being inspired from its users. It's just amazing to watch a site grow all by itself, inspired by the users that use it.
With a page rank of 4 (whatever the hell that really is?) done solely by tried and true hard work. Just proves that with blood, sweat and tears, nothing is impossible over time.
