Welcome back

Post by sadude »

mm-bbs was formed in 2002 after a couple of members were banned from the jpopmusic MM section. JPM was the main place for English-speaking Morning Musume and Hello! Project fans in the early part of this decade, and it was big enough that some people felt they could split and start an alternate community, especially after the aforementioned banning.



So they did. The board grew and flourished over the years, as well as shrank and contracted. There were ups and downs for whatever reasons, yet despite people's expectations for us to fail and crash and burn, we still live. There's still a community here that refuses to die despite some people really hoping for it. Kind of like H!P itself. <img src='http://mm-bbs.org/public/style_emoticon ... /smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':weeeh:' />



So this turnover is the latest part of that, I guess. Peach and I have been around for a while: we've seen different admin and ownership styles, and we have our own ideas of what direction to take the board in. Being a part of the community means a lot to us, so Peach and I both jumped at the opportunity to take over when no one else would. We decided that we'd be co-owners: she's the chief here, and I'm taking care of the hosting. Shelly (strawberryjam) is still head tech guru, also, and we owe her a lot for her hard work in maintaining and bringing up the board. This board wouldn't be here if it weren't for her, basically. She put in a lot of work and finished the tech parts way before the re-opening of the board, despite being on vacation where she shouldn't be working. Give her many, many thanks next time you see her.



The board was down for over a month now, and I'm sure that some people didn't really care if it came back or not or would've been glad if it didn't. I don't know about you, but it felt a little empty not having the board and its people around. We hope that the community means a lot to you guys as well, and that you'll participate and help out where you can. It wouldn't be the same without everyone's participation, since that's the very definition of a community. We hope that you trust us to lead it.

That was very nice of you to say, thank you. <img src='http://mm-bbs.org/public/style_emoticon ... ryalot.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':weeeh:' />



I want to thank everyone too for their hardwork and everyone's patience too! <img src='http://mm-bbs.org/public/style_emoticon ... /weeeh.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':(' />



Anyways, I'd really like to encourage everyone post more. It's been more quiet and I feel like everything's become so serious here. New year, so lets everyone cheer up! <img src='http://mm-bbs.org/public/style_emoticon ... /weeeh.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

Congratulations on getting the board back up and running. Good job! <img src='http://mm-bbs.org/public/style_emoticon ... /weeeh.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':weeeh:' /> I didn't even have to re-register.



I kinda missed this place. I'll try and post more from now on.

Yay it's back. Maybe I'll try and be more active for this iteration of the mmbbs, but who knows! I still have a vicious tendency to want to lurk though, but if people don't post, then I won't have stuff to lurk!



Or something. Whatever! Thanks to everyone who had a hand in bringing it all up again, I'll be looking forward to the boards coming alive again.

I too hope it'll become more active again, I miss the weekly updates of shows with pictures and commentary. I will try my best to participate more as well in ways that are appreciated.

I definitely agree! <img src='http://mm-bbs.org/public/style_emoticon ... /dance.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':D' /> I remembered when I first joined here in the summer of '05. Everyone was(?) a bitch towards me, but that's all in the past now! I've really grown to really like this board, and I really do appreciate sadude, Peach, strawberryjam, and everyone else for working really hard on this board.



THANK YOU!



I have a question though, are doing that thing where sadude plays snippets of H!P songs, and we all race to see who can name them? Since December already past, some may have forgotten, but I would like to do it again this year. Even though I know sadude will have to do all the setting up stuff. <img src='http://mm-bbs.org/public/style_emoticon ... /weeeh.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':hmph:' />

omgomg, the board is back!! I have been checking the board regularly since it was down.

BIG thanks to those who has been working hard on resurrecting the board <img src='http://mm-bbs.org/public/style_emoticon ... umbsup.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':thumbsup:' />

It is nice to know a bit of history about the board too...

emm, i have been to jpopmusic too, but I end up choosing here. This board seems better crafted, I can't stand a forum that doesn't even has its own banner.

Yup, we will. I had it in mind for December, actually, and then the board went down. I'll post details later. <img src='http://mm-bbs.org/public/style_emoticon ... #>/meh.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=';/' />

I had been out of touch with the bbs community for a little while before it died and I was never sure if it was gone forever or coming back. That would have been sad.

But then it did! It's good to see all of you again and thanks to those who fixed it.
