Thread ModesRIP IF/ZB
09-06-2018, 12:21 AMI guess today (Sept. 5th 2018) Marks the official end to IF/ZB.
IF they waited 9 more days the support board would have been around for 16 years, it was created on Sept 14th 2002.
I was a member there for 14 years, and staff for 13. So many memories, so many good and bad times. Sad to see it all go away.
09-06-2018, 04:06 AMI wasn't on it for as long, but it was extremely important to me in my formative days as I found my way around the internet.
I may have fallen off the place in the last few years, but I probably wouldn't be anywhere I am on the internet today without that community, so it still holds a special place in my heart. I'll miss it dearly.
09-06-2018, 05:14 AMMy board was on it for 13 and a half years before being destroyed about two weeks ago.
RIP the support forum. Had a lot of nice people help me out over there. Both on IF and ZB.
Such a waste and a shame.
09-06-2018, 01:33 PMSuch a shame to see the support forum convert. Thought it would've been the last to go, would've been the decent thing to do
09-06-2018, 04:33 PMIts bizarro world now there. And getting connection errors everyother page load or so.
O well, it won't even be there much longer, so I guess we just watch it sink beneath the waves at this point.Planet Nexus 2.0 is here! Check out NexAds beta Follow us
09-06-2018, 04:51 PMIt's a real shame, that's for sure. Like EA, the ZB community was an enormous influence in my early years. I'd definitely have a much different career and life if it hadn't been there.
09-06-2018, 05:20 PMI spent so much time on IF/ZB and thus on computers I don't think I would have really gotten in to computers/IT/troubleshooting that I did because of it.
09-07-2018, 06:20 AMAm I the only one that never gained anything?
Aside from you bunch of straglers that seem to pop up every few years and I can't shake. :glare:

Well whether people intended to dessert the support board or not after the migration, it is happening because you can't navigate it now without constant page load errors.
No one is going to put up with that for very long. At least support won't die a lingering death. It's pretty much done now.
RIP indeed. The end of an era.Planet Nexus 2.0 is here! Check out NexAds beta Follow us
