Cuss us out and stuff here...
... just in case you'd like to

Gabez 06-12-2003 08:02 PM

This is a sad day for SCUMM Bar news updaters called Gabez :~

How am I going to feed my nine starving children now? :~

It was also my SCUMM Bar 1 year birthday not that long ago. :~ Ah the memories. ;

Thrik 06-12-2003 08:04 PM

Not to worry, I'm sure Blood Island will happily take up the position of the Monkey Island community hub.

bgbennyboy 06-12-2003 08:05 PM

I weep openly, and for real this time, not just to sound cool and fit in.

Courthold 06-12-2003 08:11 PM

Sorry to see the site go :( Now i must rely on LTM for all my monkey island news.

telarium 06-12-2003 08:13 PM

I remember working with Skyfox on the logo for The SCUMM Bar back in 1997 or 98. Good times.

The logos I made sucked, by the way.

Squinky 06-12-2003 08:17 PM

Great, now Remi can go back to his busy life of potato-eating and watermelon-humping.

MrManager 06-12-2003 08:21 PM

And you know you love it Squeekso. ;-*

Noodle_ss 06-12-2003 08:45 PM


It is a sad day :(

Skyfox 06-12-2003 09:56 PM

oh come on Tel.. those logos ruled! certainly for their time.

I actually forgot to thank *ALL* who participated in the site over the years in the press release thingywhatsit. All the staff, all the people who sent in art, that novel writing dude who is my best mate, all the ops at #mi and that small dude with horns who sits on my shoulder.

Dude! I've been hanging round that remi dude too much... saying dude FAR too often.

Well Remi, that certainly is not what I thought.

The Scumm Bar was one of the first sites I ever visited on the internet. This is more sad than this post can hope to describe.

Oh well, I guess people have to move on.

Cheers Skyfox. Cheers Remi. You gave us some good times.

(curls up in the foetal position and rocks)

Metallus 06-13-2003 12:08 AM

Thanks for the help with MI2, SCUMM Bar. :~

Riffage 06-13-2003 12:22 AM

So long, the site will be missed :(

Huz 06-13-2003 01:06 AM

Drink up, the world's about to end.

Udvarnoky 06-13-2003 01:14 AM

This may seem a tad weird, but uh....


Alia 06-13-2003 01:33 AM

Why?? Die, inhuman wretch! No, that came out wrong. What I meant to say was cuss. Cuss cuss cuss cuss cuss.

*eyes brim with unshed tears*

An integral part of the world just died, and you want to know why it's about to end? Good lord. Don't be thick. Buy yourself that drink and ponder it for a while.

*returns to hysterical paroxysms of grief*

Udvarnoky 06-13-2003 01:37 AM

Not WHY the world is going to end. That is pretty clear to me. I want to know why the SCUMM Bar has closed.

Qouhog 06-13-2003 01:41 AM

Sorry to see it go, this was the best site to cover the topic that it was about.

Andi Wan 06-13-2003 01:45 AM

The whole site has probably been nuked by the friggin server operator guy. (skin him, boil him, bury him alive!)

Unless they had a back up version of the site and its content, it would probably take them forever to get it back to what it was.

Remi probably doesn't have the time/inclination to start again.

Xzooma 06-13-2003 02:05 AM

damnit... Thanks for everything guys. Site was my homepage for the past 8 months, loved it. About 5 ppl here in indiana know about MI. GL with the new stuff that comes along.

btw Ian, Remi I got that MI t-shirt you guys want it?

I'll have to say the same. Nostalgia setting in.

Remi, it is nothing personal, but I sortof stopped visiting the site when Skyfox headed out. I don't know why. I am certain it was nothing personal. That Captain Mystery feud was nothing but fun, so that couldn't've been it.

I am all faklempt. It is an odd feeling. Try to remember when this applied to you: you are walking down the street, PI55ED for whatever superficial reason, and you feel as if you may strangle with your bare hands the first bum that asks you for a quarter---and suddenly, out of nowhere, through a rift in time, the oh-so-familiar smell of your summerhouse drifts under your nose. The mental picture of your long-gone grandfather - more vivid than it's been in years - with a backdrop of cherry orchards in bloom grips you like a coughing fit. We have cherry orchards around our summerhouse, and rows and rows of roses and rosemary and figs and walnuts and blackberries.... I haven't been there in six years. I think my uncle said that it's all wilted since the bombing. I blame Madeline Albright.

It feels, you know, like Jammin' by Bob Marley, like Moondance by Van Morrison. Like a passing orgasm, only without the silly pose you find yourself in. Like lost love, like a natural high, like a metropolitan night with stars! A blithe melancholy, in a class of its own, chasing away the ire of petty existence.

... then that bum appears and lost in the moment you hand over your whole wallet.

Attached to a site. Like to a childhood toy.




Ryback 06-13-2003 03:54 AM

I guess this means the MI novel will never be completed...

C Shutt 06-13-2003 04:51 AM

Dude, whatever.

Ray Jones 06-13-2003 05:06 AM

no way guys..
Cant we just upload the data we downloaded? i mean gfx, sfx all the stuff??? yes maybe it wouldnt be the latest .. but with that "half" backup and some superpirates .. and the articles etc .. will be discussed freshly new .......... .... ... ... .. . . . .... . . . could it be that "ez"???? is it totally screwed.. really?

Andi Wan 06-13-2003 05:15 AM

I guess it is totally screwed.

Thrik 06-13-2003 07:40 AM

I'm pretty sure that Remi has the data himself, and is going to leave it up for people to get nostalgic over when the server relives.

I don't think that the closure is related to the server problems at all though, so don't worry about that.

jannar85 06-13-2003 07:47 AM

Curse you all! Betraying Skyfox and everything!

What about us??
Why do you do this to us??

Am I hopeless, and will be commiting suicide now, because I read that you'd closed??

Skyfox would have kept it alive longer
I miss Skyfox... That Skyfox who posted here... it was a hoax..
I'm positive.

I hope this is just a joke....
...but it's not 1st April....

I hope it's still a joke... :(

...or there will be no Foodbelly for you guys
......hmmm.... allright, there will be then, I guess... :rolleyes:

scabb 06-13-2003 08:01 AM

Remi is a bad man :~

Thrik 06-13-2003 08:12 AM

That isn't a fake Skyfox you fool. In fact, I think it's Skyfox who wanted to close it.

GregD 06-13-2003 09:34 AM

This is the sadest news i've heard in a while. All my respect to skyfox and remi and all the other people who contributed for doing a fantastic job on the site over the years. I still don't understand why you guys are closing it but it was by far the best resource for MI related stuff and we can at least remember it for that.

Joshi 06-13-2003 09:42 AM

You know, it wasn't my favotie MI site, but i'll miss it more than i would any other mi site if they closed down. This is a sad day.

And just a though, Remi, there was a lot of stuff on that site which we couldn't get elsewhere on other mi sites, any chance of seeing them on BSBC so we'd still have access to them?

Thrik 06-13-2003 09:55 AM

I think it's likely that the Scumm Bar will still be available for looking at, it just won't ever be updated again. I asked Remi in IRC and he seemed to say that'd be so, and yeah.

Governor Phatt 06-13-2003 10:14 AM


temibile pirata 06-13-2003 10:18 AM

I was visiting the site every day since 1997, I'll really miss it. Thanks for all that have you done for Monkey Island, Scumm Bar!

Hyena 06-13-2003 10:23 AM

Thank you! Good bye!
Bye bye Scumm Bar, we'll remember you. It's a promise.

---Good bye from all the Italian fans---

QueZTone 06-13-2003 10:25 AM

was there ANY "ooh let's ask Ralgath to take over" noooooooo
"let's see what Ral thinks of this.." noooooo

you schmucks! :~

you'll be hearing from me!

Joshi 06-13-2003 11:16 AM

I think we just did.

BooJaka 06-13-2003 11:18 AM

Sigh. And I thought I'd seen the worst when The Scumm Bar closed its legendary forums back in 98 or whenever that was.

Good luck for the future y'all

Haggis 06-13-2003 12:47 PM

Bye. We'll never be the same without you. I hope you'll enjoy being undead, though.

Marek 06-13-2003 01:43 PM

Oh great. First we had to lose Booty Island, then LucasFans went down and now the SCUMM Bar is gone. WHAT HAS THE WORLD COME TO?!?!?

Wait, does anyone even remember Booty Island around here? Well, I guess my point is that some other site will just fill the void. It's sad to see the SCUMM bar go though.

Thanks guys. It was great while it lasted! :craider:
