    I got to thinking about things when the forums went down again.

    What exactly would people do if the CKC forums closed down? Seeing as the game is moth balled and interest in the cards seems to be low (afaik) it feels like it's only a matter of time before the holdouts get tired and leave. As I see it, the shout box is really the only thing keeping this place lively... I mean sure, there's posts in the threads but so little of it pertains to this site.

    So are people going to jump to other forums like Toho Kingdom for example? Are they going to just hang it up?

    Will the CKC discord group stay alive?

    So what's everyone going to do?

    Well, Mr Jay, I first joined this forum due to the (not necessarily, guaranteed, but still there) possibility of getting my monsters into the CKC video game, but then I discovered the friendly people of the forums and decided to stay because of them :)

    I'm not sure what Simon is going to say regarding the cards, and while I want to hear his explanations to ALL of my questions (MUA HA HA HA XD), I'll most likely just stay on to keep my threads active as well as that of Daikaiju Daikessen and other games I'm interested in.

    I'm assuming there will be some activity in the Discord group for quite some time, seeing as that Simon would want to to a reunion of sorts on Discord once a year and stuff like that.

    While CKC may or may not take off in the future, I'll be focussed on the games I want to make on my own and in collaboration with my friends over here such as AgentDrako, G&G-Fan, and so on :D

    I still have hope on the game to come back, so as long as the forum is still alive, I'll be here.
    Also, my game, Daikaiju Fighting Tournament doesn't have its own site and forum yet (I have planned on that but it's not the time yet), so here will be the place I update the progress of development of the game.

    I have high hopes on the CKC game coming back to life as well :)

    I have since created a website of my own to display my games on Itch.io, so if you're planning to put up your games there in the future, you could start with that website. Do let me know if you need help with understanding how to set up your profile page on Itch.io :)

    Honestly, I dunno. I signed up for the same reasons Shashi did - 'cause I'd heard you could get your OC kaiju into a video-game made by the guy who'd made the Pipeworks Godzilla games, which I'd enjoyed playing. Of course, the process was more complicated than that, but I beat the odds and made it to Progenitor... just before that stopped being a thing of importance. That's not to say I didn't have fun pushing my imagination to its limits and coming up with new designs, and making new acquaintances with interests similar to my own. I'll miss this place.

    I guess after this place shuts down I'll go back to doing what I was doing before.

    yeah but I can't get into it, I believe it's because Abyssal banned me from mistaking me from somebody else but you could be talking about a different one, there's like 3 of them

    He said he unbanned you, and google hasn't given any results, and you're IN the chat's member list apparently, so I'd suggest contacting discord support if they have one.

    That said, I'd totes join your discord. Could be the Shoutbox remembrance club.

    He is right, I did unban you a month afterwards. I'm trying my best to figure out this issue really.

    Try this link for now, but if it has problems, I'll look at the system. I apologize for the problems at the moment really - https://discord.gg/QfyMQBq
    Also, I do kinda dig the idea of a shout-box remembrance discord. spmax has been stressing about Woody and plus alot of other people have loved the shoutbox.

    Still can't get in, the only thing I can think of was the fact I originally opened the invite in-game on steam, so the browser discord would not have had me logged in and now the invite in general is just expired all across the board for me. but that's just a game theory!

    Wait a minute you were still banned. I just checked the damn system. I swore I unbanned you months ago. Ah well, it's just a game theory.

    Go ahead and try again.

    I don't plan on jumping to TK or anything (this far CKC is the only forum I've ever really gotten "into". I'm still sorta working on figuring out the internet at large) but I do plan on continuing being online with Skype and Discord.

    My art too won't be stopping, I've opened a portfolio DA account and am trying to keep that up and running.

    Alright, now that issues been settled, I might as well explain what will happen to the Herringsverse.

    Its been a while since I've worked on the project myself, but some new issues have arose. Majority of the universe has been explained by myself in order to magnify the science fiction aspects of the universe; too much to a point where I strayed away from my original intention and inspiration, Lovecraft's Works.

    The King Of Herrings, The Bride, and accompanying kaiju will not be shelved, but rather be developed further. The only repercussion that would come with this is that I will remove all trace of the Herringsverse off of this forum, and it will be worked on silently, and under everyone's noses.

    I still need to improve, yes; but majority of people here have given no (recently, pertaining to the changes) constructive criticism, much less most of the criticism I have received throughout my life has been forgotten, and or just introduced rudely. I wish to learn a little more before I move on.

    If you have any questions, or are confused, ask me.

    I first arrived here right at the tail-end of CKC enthusiasm. There were still a lot of new creations flowing in and people giving critiques on them. I was fortunate enough to get some cool artwork pretty early on. In fact, Mr. Jay, you were the first person to ever draw my kaiju for me, and you did it just because. That's one of the first things that comes to mind whenever I think of my early days here, and I'll always appreciate that.

    Given how fondly I remember everything, it's going to be really sad to see this place go, so I can't imagine how it must be for people who were here since Day 1. I don't plan on joining any more forums. Like wewe, this is the only one I've ever had a desire to be active in. But I'll always be around on Discord and Skype and would like to keep up with everyone through there as well.

    Other than that, this place was able to pull some pretty neat ideas from me. Creations I wasn't even sure I was capable of before I found this place. I'll always have those with me should I ever decide to do something with them, and for that I'm also grateful. That was my favorite thing about this place. Yeah, the chance of getting a character into a game is what brought me here, but what kept me here was watching talented creators come and inspire others with their ideas. Everyone bringing the best out of everyone to create some of the coolest creatures I've ever seen. If another kaiju community like that ever pops up, you can bet I'll be there.

    For now though, I can be found at a lot of other places. Discord, Skype, Facebook. Even deviantArt, though I never post anything. Anyone who wants to hit me up is most welcome. I like hearing from people, even if I seem pretty quiet as far as members go.

    I remember starting that pic for you before you were even finished posting your monster description. Bambs was talking about it and I took an interest in the idea. I didn't have any specifics at the time, so I just decided to wing it.

    I also realized that I never gave my thoughts on life after ckc.

    If this forum were to shut down, I think that would mostly be it for me. Lot's of people here that were/are awesome, lot's of talent and ideas to go around. Lot of pleasant memories. But without the game to sustain the site, it's just so hard to keep interest.

    I don't have discord and I only keep in touch with a few people from here, outside this forum and even then, it's not very often. I still like sculpting and I post on DA from time to time so there's that.

    When game development stopped, there seemed to be a fairly clear reason as to why it never started back up. No one else knew the engine and Simon didn't have the time or money to get anyone else to learn it. If he wiped the slate clean, used a current and readily available engine that has a pool of talent to choose from, then maybe we'd see something in a few years.

    TBH, I just don't see it happening.
