Journey's End...

I'm still finding this very difficult, seeing as it is the last thing that I will be writing for the site. I, the owner, have had a wonderful and amazing time over the last nine months, but I had originally thought that it would last longer. For some of you, this might be completely new information, others hints, and a select few heard the story from behind-the-scenes. I don't know how much I'm going to write here, but I am not aiming for it to be very long at all.

If you didn't already know, I put a very large amount of time and effort into the site, and look at what has become over this time. Now, you may think that all this hard work would be silly to just leave behind me. The truth is, that if I did carry on, I would have to put that same amount of work into it, and there is a lot of pressure to keep on going. Of course, I could do less, but I don't really want to continue if it isn't as good as it used to be.

The Christmas break made me realise. When I first stopped for the short amount of time, I still wanted to carry on. I kind of still do now, but I picture a life without it, and it seems so free. I enjoyed that break so much that it is actually very hard to get into it again. The break gave me an opportunity to end. Of course, no updates, like they said they would, occured just before the new year and into 2009, and I just left it. Now, I change my mind every ten minutes "Yes, I want to do it" ... "No, I can't do it".

This closure of the site is not an easy decision, but, at the moment, is a final decision. What has kept me crawling back are the many positive comments about the site. Thanks You so much to absolutely everyone who evryone who did this. It's also very hard to do this because it's so popular! I'm amazed at the number of visitors we had each day, and that just makes it all the more disappointing to stop. Oh, how do I thank everyone! Should I list the main people? Oh, this is hard, there are so many. Here goes (in no particular order);

I know you will all hate me, because I know you couldn't think of the internet without this site ;). And, wow, first ever smiley! Please, anyone, if there is anything you would like to say, put it in the cbox. I should respond.

But, the good news... The chat page is still open! And a page that was never completed, Classic Series, can be found here!

Well, hasn't it been fun! I hope you have had a brilliant time. I will still be around, so don't think you're rid of me. But the site may come back in the future. (And before you ask, TA, no you cannot have the site) We will have to see...

Thank You, Everyone! It's not goodbye really, but anyway!
Have a fantastic life...

Alex (Adv)

Bye Alex, best luck for the future. I have always loved the site, but I know how stressful it can be. I am actually, in the process, just like you were of deciding whether to close DWMO, as I just feel what am I getting out of it? Speak to you on MSN!

Red Wolf said...

Hang on a sec... couldn't you continue, but instead of keeping it as a scheduled thing to do, just write posts when you want to? It doesn't have to be on a regular basis, maybe once a week or once a month or something. Because the content on the site is sooo good!!! Please consider it!!! :-) Happy New Year!

Hello adv. i have created a new dr who website and it has been inspired by yours cos i want to have an epic open/close thing so i better get started and it been opened since decemeber so you will rememeber me as toys and I've finally got the name/url fing working so i can write without signing in. i know the anonymous person was not me but what he said was true to be honest cos i do love you but not in a gay way cos u are my bestest friend i have ever had cos u are loyal. i remember dat time when the nasty person was on cbox and they sayed "rarr, im a slitheen, rarr and im going to eat toys" and i was scared and you calmed me because i was scared of slitheen but because you are so kind i am happier now and i love you. the site is pretty an i love it. goodbye adv but not 4eva.
