The Thank You For The Memories Thread - Saying Goodbye to the Forums

Master_ChibiMaster_Chibi .: Dynamites! :.Joined: Posts: 15,077 mod
In twenty two days this forums is closing its doors. After close to two decades worth of operation, countless tournaments, events, gatherings, sessions, new game launches, old game revivals, money matches, west coast / east coast rivalry, national rivalry, global rivalry, we have really seen it all. I've been here for FIFTEEN GOD DAMN YEARS, and I've been a pain in the ass at some points, and haven't really been around all that much recently but god damn did I ever love my time here. The people I met here, friends I made, and so much more was all worth it signing up for it with this stupid handle people STILL call me by even now. Entire communities have had their start here from just one thread in Fighting Game Discussion, and many of the big names sitting pretty with a 3 lettered abbreviation behind their name were once just as much of a part of these stomping grounds as much as the rest of us.

So I'm making this thread to give everyone that chance to remember all the wonderful times and people that came from this place. Reach in there and grab that wonderful memory and give it a big fat bear hug. Good or bad, throw it on the table and enjoy it, our time is almost up!

    I am under no illusion that anything that exists on this side of the ether will be adequate replacement.

    There's some really good stuff in there. Shit has changed so much with gaming becoming bigger and all this e-sports shit, no wonder they want to shut us down. I wonder if they will save the articles though.

    Oh snap, Master Chibi checking in. Nice of you to make all those Team Light Kick avatars years ago. I still have mine saved somewhere. I had you put Abigail in it. Who would've known he would end up in Street Fighter V, of all places, or that SFV would even be a thing.

    looking back on all of this, i always thought that SRK was immortal.

    thanks to everyone that made this place great, unbearable, fun, messed-up and just flat-out crazy.
    this has been my personal sanctuary for almost 2 decades, what a great run guys...

    peace out.

    Reddit sucks.

    Shout out to the late, umvc3 OTT. Had some great time there.
    Would really miss hitting up the wrestling and DBS thread. Became a part of my routine and really enjoy all the guys there and in gd in general.
    Smh srk dying too young, we ain't even 27 yet. This was one the realest place I've seen online.


    I really hope something could be worked out before the end. Pateron or something might just be what was needed.
    I mean shitty ass youtubers get more through that, shouldn't be too hard.

    Stay free ._.

    I was never really active here but lurked a lot, read a lot.

    The news about the forums getting closed, and that without any attempts to fundraise an amount of money needed to keep them "alive" is very sad.

    The wiki's out there, the reddit threads, discord channels and videos on yt are great and all but they are a different kind of communication and content that can't replace this forum.

    These forums were my only window into the FGC for years. Without them, I wouldn't be where I am, and I wouldn't be who I am, today.
    So many histories, so many stories, so many accounts, and so many B&B's. It's been an amazing time, SRK forums.

    Close this thread. SRK is not a place, we are SRK and where we go the story continues.

    We may just need a new host that's all.

    OK back in 2001/02 I really got into 3S and was trying to look for competitive videos as I had read all gamefaqs guides and combos (lol). With no YouTube and having Yahoo as my ally, I found Game Newton videos and Family Fun Arcade (Cali). Obviously trying to find anything on Japan at that time was hard cause it was in japanese so I went and tried to look for more FFA videos. I found Frankie3S, Pyrolee, Victoly, Amir, Alex Valle, Combofiend etc videos and at the same time, found about SRK. From that moment on, I found a place that not only gathered all my nerdy hobbies but fellas around my age that had grown up with the same sorta things (music, toys, cartoons, etc). I hope a solution comes from all this but I wanna thank all for the memories, laughs and "discussions".
    You want to enjoy your shit game? Go ahead. Just know that I will ALWAYS be here - po pimpus 2006-2017 RIP
