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

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

Rosebud.

Rosebud.

sigh

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.

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...

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

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.

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?

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.

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!
