Title: Answers and NOW!
Post by: Sin on May 15, 2007, 11:41:03 AM
:: A sudden shroud of smoke appears and a man puffing on a cigarette emerages from the miasma. Tapping his foot in annoyance, he pulls the cancer stick from his lips and speaks. ::

What in the hell is going on here? Why is Yanime closing and I want straight answers. I'm tired of all this hunting bull. Give me a straight answer why and explain the situation so I can see what I can do to ressurect and revive this son of a gun...

And hopefully no one has forgotten little old me, or I'm about to be taking off some heads...

Well the announcement says it all really... and we havn't seen any of the IRC people around at all, so I guess that's that. :-\ The scanslation group lost interest so the whole site will be down in October. ^^;;

But yeah, welcome back. :P

I'll admit that the forum went down hill with the spam content and it's lost it's formal glory in the days of freshmen high school, but hey, it's still a good site with good people, we just have to figure out how to fix it at some point and get it's activity back into it's prime.

And thanks Judau

What? The scanslation group? I don't think so, I think that's basically considered dead already.

aside from the scanslation group is there anything else?

Its terrible that Yanime is shutting down and if there was any way to stop that I would love to do it. It has been awhile since I was last here so I am most likely forgotten. I have not heard from you in a long time...Dale.

Post by: Tenchisama on May 19, 2007, 02:44:52 PM
if we all shell out a bunch of money to pay for the hosting of this site then yeah we can probabaly keep it alive....
at least until we all lose interest agine and let it go to hell
Title: Re: Answers and NOW!
Post by: Waffo on May 19, 2007, 05:27:24 PM
Never!  If we lost interest and never checked Yanime again, we wouldn't be having this little reunion right now.
Title: Re: Answers and NOW!
Post by: Yukio on May 19, 2007, 05:34:44 PM
I will have to agree with her. Though of course one of the reasons I am spending so much time here is because I don't have much to do at the moment as well. Oh well, at least there are actually some good quality posts being posted.  ;D
Title: Re: Answers and NOW!
Post by: Steven on May 19, 2007, 07:05:30 PM
It wasn't so much that I lost interest in yanime as it was other people just kept drifting away and it started to become alien to me.

other than that, I'm sad to see it go too.  It wasn't my first forum, but it was certainly the one that stayed together the longest....
Title: Re: Answers and NOW!
Post by: Yukio on May 19, 2007, 07:10:40 PM
Yep, Steven is right, even though I hate to admit that.
Title: Re: Answers and NOW!
Post by: StrikeFlo on May 21, 2007, 03:58:20 AM
yanime as everyone knew it is dead since a lot of time already, since plum left I think. There was only 2 or 3 people left to work and even those had other things to do.

We did wait before annoucing the disbanding in hope that some fresh blood would join, but it was hopeless, without a project like ichigo that brings a lot of people we had only luck to rely onto...

Anyway, the old Yanime is dead for good since the former team is no more. If someone is interested to build up a new team I don't think anybody will care about it, but it will be more a neo-yanime than the good ol' yanime  :P
Title: Re: Answers and NOW!
Post by: KujoSan on May 21, 2007, 05:47:03 AM
just can hope yanime won't be closed...
Title: Re: Answers and NOW!
Post by: Yukio on May 21, 2007, 07:38:18 AM
Well we can all hope though I am afraid that this board will most likely be closed, but of course its the members that makes the board so it will never really die. At least I think so.
Title: Re: Answers and NOW!
Post by: AsianBlondGirl ~aka~ kittycat on May 21, 2007, 10:37:33 AM
Yanime has been here so long and through out my main growing up points that i just cant see it closing, i mean i would have been completely SHOCKED if i came to check in on it and it was GONE!  :-\
I just cant see it all closing down, it would be really cool if some how some part of yanime went on so we could come in every so often and see what was going on in everyones lives and how we all were....

I do think allot of it falling apart had to do with allot of ppl growing up and changing, no saying they lost intrest in anime but more they had to build a life and didn't have as much free time as we all did when we were younger.
And like in mine and tenchisamas situation family problems, also like now Ive been on my own for a while and its hard to find time and space in a day to day schedule like we use to have.....but I still looked forward to popping in and seeing everyone and how thing were going when i get the chance. :-[
Title: Re: Answers and NOW!
Post by: Kazenoken on May 22, 2007, 07:04:34 PM
but then maybe the board wont go down?
Title: Re: Answers and NOW!

That would be nice =^.^=
Title: Re: Answers and NOW!
Post by: Kazenoken on May 23, 2007, 07:16:29 PM
well it'll be good if the board stays...
Title: Re: Answers and NOW!
Post by: ZeroRyoko1974 on May 24, 2007, 11:14:33 AM
hahaha Yanime closing has increased posting immensely.  There was like 2-3 regular posters if that.  I was suprised this place was still going since there was basically one section that gets posted in. 
Title: Re: Answers and NOW!
Post by: DiSpy on May 24, 2007, 02:38:38 PM
I'll host the boards (for free)... I've PM'd the webmistress.
Title: Re: Answers and NOW!
Post by: AsianBlondGirl ~aka~ kittycat on May 25, 2007, 04:27:06 AM
Show's how much we dont want it to close, even if we dont post much some times, we still check in and want to be able to see how every one is once in a while!
 :'( :'( :'( i dont want it to CLOSE!!!!
Title: Re: Answers and NOW!
Post by: Karthnit on May 26, 2007, 09:09:00 AM
Its sad the forum is closing but there is nothing that is going to be done.  I'll miss this place just as I miss Jurian Towers....ahh the good ol days...
Title: Re: Answers and NOW!
Post by: StrikeFlo on May 27, 2007, 11:33:48 AM
wow, seriously, I'm kinda happy that you people even go as far as offer to host the forum to keep something of yanime alive.
In any case this site and forum will remain for at least a few more month since we paid the host yearly. (paid with donations)
Title: Re: Answers and NOW!
Post by: Kazenoken on May 28, 2007, 07:02:21 PM
so now there isnt any donations? thats why the site will be closed?
Title: Re: Answers and NOW!

Probably

Post by: thewindknight on May 29, 2007, 10:50:08 AM
How much is the site per year--that's what everyone needs to know so we can know how much to donate.  Waffo and I are willing.  But I don't have much and we dont know the cost.
Title: Re: Answers and NOW!
Post by: Tenchisama on May 29, 2007, 06:33:00 PM
alot of us are willing to donate but nobody seems to be able to tell us how much the hosting costs
Title: Re: Answers and NOW!
Post by: Kazenoken on May 29, 2007, 06:45:33 PM
yeah even though im not willing to donate cuz i dont have a bank account :-[

well thats really useful :P
Title: Re: Answers and NOW!
Post by: Waffo on May 30, 2007, 06:25:01 PM
so now there isnt any donations? thats why the site will be closed?

The scanslating part of Yanime is dead because of lack of staff/projects, I assume.  And there's no main Yanime so the board may follow.  Eh, I guess some people can't believe that just a board by itself can be fun.  But if we could donate for next year...
Title: Re: Answers and NOW!
Post by: SbreAch on June 01, 2007, 01:19:05 PM
Bah its kinda sad Yanime is dyeing on irc and on the forums, not like ive ever been active in the past years its still sad to see where i had such great times slowly fade.
Title: Re: Answers and NOW!
Post by: DiSpy on June 04, 2007, 06:26:05 AM
I've offered several times, but no one ever answers me...

I'll host the boards... for free!

(I'm the webmaster of Noated, and I already host shoujomagic and the mangaproject forums.)
Title: Re: Answers and NOW!
Post by: Tenchisama on June 04, 2007, 04:27:55 PM
well mabey we can work something out but we would need the approval of the admins and mods that are still active.

Yeah, those are the guys who don't answer my pm's :( Maybe you guys would have better luck contacting one of them.

Post by: Motoko-chan on June 25, 2007, 09:32:15 AM
Sorry for being away for so long, life has kept me busy (first company moving location, then other stuff, now mom is in the hospital).

Hosting is about $95 a year (something like $8 a month). It expires in October.

Cgoten still has the domain, although I can see if he'll transfer it to me. I don't mind paying the yearly renewal for that.

DiSpy, thanks for the offer. I'll get back to you soon on it. (For some reason, I wasn't getting notification on the PMs.)
Title: Re: Answers and NOW!
Post by: Kazenoken on June 25, 2007, 07:21:00 PM
well i guess that a bit of a relief anyways i hope he would transfer it so yanime doesnt have to die

No problem, let me know if you want to talk privately... (i'm in the yanime irc channel)
Title: Re: Answers and NOW!
Post by: Motoko-chan on July 03, 2007, 08:59:17 PM
I'm in the process of transferring the domain name now.

Title: Re: Answers and NOW!
Post by: Motoko-chan on July 11, 2007, 09:06:35 PM
The domain is now in my possession. Now I just need to figure out hosting.

I want to keep the forums on SMF because it is good software.
