Don't worry, I wasn't blaming you. Just sharing my anguish. I don't like change.

Does this potential sale apply to Fratching, too?

Well they say all good things must come to an end. I'm just sad one of them might be this place. I hope someone takes it up because I was planning on using you all for some market research on a business idea I have once I am clear of all the legal troubles I'm having.

Depends on the approach taken by whoever takes over. One of the reasons I gave six weeks notice is that it means any potentially interested parties can come forward, and if they want to keep it the same then I would likely discuss that as an option. If that's not an option, I would either put that domain up for sale or just let it expire.

What happens from here on depends on the sort of interest shown and by whom. I can confirm I've been in contact with a number of people thus far and I'm doing my best to be as honest with them as possible. My preference would be for someone to take over and end up keeping the place going, whether with a trim of the posts for the sake of the DB or whatever they want to do.

Not safe to join for me, just in case. Venting on social media is a major no-no for me where I work.

I'll miss this place a lot if it goes; been some good times here.

I've been a lurker on here for several years now, since I started working at a now-defunct (in)convenience store. As you can see, my post count barely scrapes 100 (well, more if you count my posts the off-topic sections, but still), but I have been a nearly-daily visitor since I first joined up (after being pointed towards here by my good friend, Dave1982). I'm on a number of other forums as well, but this is definitely one of my favorites.

I would very much be sad to see this place go, since it gave me a place to vent my frustrations back when I worked in retail, and has provided loads of interesting stories to read and learn from over the years. I'm another one of those not-on-FB types, and a bit of a luddite in general (as my avatar has long showed), so I'd be unlikely to follow to the social media sites. I definitely hope a way is found to keep this place around in something resembling this form.

Would you use the same name? I don't really comment there, but I read it every day. I'll look for ya'.
I know I periodically comment on Retail when I have something relevant to say, and under the same username. It actually amuses me when I'm on another site and see a username I recognize from here in the comments (Etiquette Hell comes to mind).

Now I'll have to keep an eye out. I don't usually comment (if I do it's under ams1001), and I usually read it first thing in the morning when I get to work, and don't go back later.

I once saw a name from here on an atheist blog that I read. Took a second to register and then I was like, Hey! I know that guy!

I comment on Retail too, but under the name Luna. Used to use my real first name, then someone else with the same name who joined later called me a "name thief".
