PostSubject: Shutting Down the Lounge   Mon Jan 13, 2014 7:34 pm

Soon, I will shut down this site. There are a few reasons, some of them including:

1. When I tried to advertise this on Google, there were payment complexes. I never actually completely got rid of the Google advertisement, and that means I might get into legal issues. I didn't think about this until now, but I feel stupid because of it.

2. There isn't as big as a group as I would like. I was hoping for around seven or so members, and I realized that if the site ever did grow as much as I would like it to, I don't think I would have the time or ability to administrate everything. So even if the site grew, there would still be problems. Count that as #3 as well.

4. We started to fall in quality in the first place. The site became less active and I found myself running out of ideas for topics (The "Kevin Needs Love Too" topic was made completely out of desperation) You guys may have had some ideas, but I felt that we were running out of how to keep the site fresh.

But still, this does not mean goodbye to the Penguin community (or as Katrina would say: The Penguess/Princeguins Community). Most of us know one another through other sites, and you can contact eachother through those sites and maybe get an idea for how we can still converse.

I may open up another 3-2-1 Penguins forum in the future when these problems won't still be there. But until then, this forum will be gone eventually. I don't know how long it will take or what date it will shut down, (due to forumotion's odd forum deletion aspects) but let's know that even without this site, the 3-2-1 Penguins fanbase can still stay strong (or something...I don't know...)

Yeah, and that may be one of the reasons it didn't work out all that well. I knew that from the beginning, so in reality that is just another reason.

There is another reason I kind of feel bad having the forum in the first place. I'll tell you guys about that when I make a video explaining this in more detail.

Don't feel too bad, Ester, there are always other sites where we can have discussions.

I don't know how/when this place will shut down, for I am having technical problems. But when I finally do, I will message all of you alternatively.
