Here's hoping The Bench continues to be as outstanding in the future as it has been in the past. Thanks for all you did.
This has been such an awesome thread, I could not be any happier to see some familiar faces....avatars more like!!
It is the people who make this site what it is, just a great community and so much kindness...so many people who are willing to give something for nothing, out of the goodness of their hearts. When it looked last week like we may have been nearing the end, I told my wife about it. She said, "that has been part of your life for how long?" 9 years, and you guys have been here for me! I mean in the last 9 years, the births of all 3 of our children, so many life events....I am thankful that we are staying right here!!
Couldn't have said it better myself.........
mr mopari have never officially left, always seemed top pop in and read every couple of weeks, but have been mostly inactive for many years now. I found other forums when the conversations just didn't seem to have any staying power and the new content was minimal. I once called the bench my online card collecting home and would be happy to return to the old ways if the site can sustain it. My new home is starting to feel a little stale now too...i just hope that the card collecting community online can keep chugging away. Each sites seems to have its own niche and many people are members of several different sites, presumably for different experiences they can't get at the other. Good luck to the new owner and i look forward to seeing how that change affects the site moving forward.
