    Doomworld Nearing Its End


    mewse

    It is arguable how much this site actually requires Linguica, but definite shift in psychology occured when the longest-serving founder of the site left after almost five years of leadership. Since then, the site has been run almost through committee with Julian serving as a sort of Chairman of the board.

    Nevertheless, each staff member wanted to voice their own reasons for leaving:

    Julian: If I ever read another line of PHP code, I don't care if I accidentally glance it or seek it out for my own destruction, but I will completely lose it, and I'll probably take out a square city block with me. Oh, and if mewse posts something retarded for April's Fools, I will fly to Canada and beat the snot out of him. I'm serious.

    Mordeth: I'll be continuing on the Mordeth project, and it's going to stay hosted here as long as the site stays up, which is uncertain considering it's not going to be maintained. I've enjoyed banning many, many people in the forums, but I'm going to spend more time concentrating on my TC. Luckily, continuing at the pace we have been going, episode 3 might see the light of day in 2008.

    Cyb: I deleted Doom again.. but I think I'm going to reinstall it, just for /newstuff reviews, and massmouth 2. heh. Wait, why did I delete it? Oh crap, I quit.

    Arioch: what? i havent been an official staff member for months

    rayle: I haven't posted news for a year, what makes you think I'm going to care what DW readers think of my leaving?

    Bloodshedder: I can still post news though.. right? By the way, I think I saw some warez in the forums..

    bigd: listen, i'm at work, can i talk to you later?

    deathz0r: Most of the time, Doomworld fills me with a vomit-inducing rage, and I end up wanting to slam my head against my desk repeatedly. Make the pain stop! Zero out of ten.

    Ultimate DooMer: From the random monsters in the top corner, to the entertaining news posts, to the excellence of the /newstuff reviewers, I'm going to be sorry to see Doomworld go. It may have been the best web site ever.

    Hyena: I love Doomworld, but sometimes the people in the forums made me want to reach into my monitor and grab then by their neck, and pull their eyes from their sockets and feed them to the neighbourhood cats. Then I'd smash their face into their monitor until jagged pieces of glass tore through their cheeks and forehead and then I'd crush their skull with my iron fist of /newstuff reviews. Thanks for nothing.

    Lüt: To anyone worrying, the forums are going to stay up as long as Telefragged remains standing. They'll have to pry it from my cold, dead fingers. Not fake dead, either.

    By the way, April fools!

    Your cruel April Fools trick has had an unfortunate consequence. I so nearly had a heart attack upon reading the announcement that I feel it is just too risky for me to continue visiting Doomworld. This will therefore be my last post here.

    This does have the small benefit that my post-count will remain 1337 for ever more.

    PS: It's still before noon here in the UK :)

    rofl. Who really though DW would go down soon is a fucking idiot. I just went here to DW thinking "hey let's see what they have as aprils fool". Not too innovative joke though. I liked the one where DW and DN switched their pages :)

    Our other ideas were rejected out of hand. Just as well though, wouldn't do for Julian to come over and hunt us all down.

    Too bad that I always look for jokes as the first thing I do when I visit a website on April 1st. So no go with me :)

    It would've been funnier if DW was in French.

    That indeed had been a good joke!

    Etc. etc.

    In light of DooM World closing and all, I have a few questions:

      1. With you guys not "managing" this place any more, how can we prevent everything from falling into disarray?
      2. Will New DooM be taking over this site?
      3. Will DooM Center be taking over this site?
      4. Will id Software be taking over the world?
      5. Will I be able to retain my post count?
      6. Who will review my next masterpiece (aka piece 'o crap), soon to be revealed to the masses via /newstuff?

    Heh! I knew it was too bad to be true. Had me fooled for a moment though.

    I was completely fooled and worried for a couple of minutes, because I stumbled across it on the forums rather than seeing the news story on the main page. Reading the wording on the main page now, the tone of "less boring pursuits" seems to give it away as not being entirely serious.

    Every forum seems to be doing this sort of thing. The admin of my ex-forum tried to convince me that microsoft had bought their website via e-mail. In a cold day in hell they will.

    So if that same admin is reading this post, forget it. TST ain't coming back. :D

    Oh and let Doomworld live forever :)
