    IN BEFORE THE LOCK - the goodbye thread

    It's been a ride. Glad to have made some real life friends here whether someone I only met for a day while traveling, people to skate with when I lived somewhere for a short amount of time, people traveling through my area looking to skate, people to travel with, or people that have become lifelong friends. Be-mag has been a place to waste time, stay current on happenings in the skate world, get exposed to people and ideas outside of my own bubble (good and bad), and feel a sense of community. The internet has changed, so I guess this place is obsolete, but it has been an unmistakably impactful presence in my life. Thanks for that.

      Its sad it has changed so much. Everything is catering to less and less effort. From posting and interacting on forums to scrolling through social feeds of shit that doesnt matter just to pass the time. Someone said here recently they miss the time where this forum would have new posts and topics so often that in 30 minutes theirs would be on the next page.

      I used to be a member on a yo-yoing forum for the UK that was like that. Now its totally dead. Hasnt been a new post in months. I guess we all have to move on, nothing lasts forever.

        Maybe you’re the problem?

        This place was great when I lived miles from anywhere, I quite enjoyed that time, but it’s not me now and that’s fine.

              Meh this place has been on the decline for ages. There are much more active places now. It was good at its peak.

                    Some of you lot were proper jokes. I think most of us were on the wind-up. Guiness, if you're still skating let's go Corby one day.

                        It was a lot of fun, gossip and shitposting. And some crazy meetups at the clashes.

                            No idea what's in store, but it sounds like the end. I've had a blast fellas. So many good times. A legendary board if there ever was one. See you at the Blade Cup and the Wayback Machine.

                                      I like your way of thinking, bro.

                                      also, it was very nice meeting you @ Woodward. See you next year, maybe even at the Pow Wow if you go.

                                        Rollingedits, amall forums and amall itself, and now this? Where to go now?

                                        I've only met a few be-maggers IRL before. Any chance any of you were at RFCC tours in mid 2000's on the east coat?

                                          This place was a big part of my life, for a very long time. I grew up here, made real life friends, got inspired, laughed, cried, the whole lot. I'm sad to see it go, but that's the way of progress.

                                          I wish all of you the very fucking best.

                                            BOOOOOOO!!!

                                            but really, so many cool people and hilarious shit happened here. I was just thinking yesterday anout how if there was a college class called Shit Talking 101, the be-mag msgboard would be the textbook.

                                            Like the “hit” that was out on FBA. $100 to whoever would piss on him at IMYTA San Jose LOL. Probably a hate crime nowadays.

                                              Somebody needs to confirm this shit if it's really happening. Martijn, you didn't really confirm this is happening. Is it?

                                                  Boys, the end of times are upon us, let us not reflect with sorrow, but with joy. This board has been magical in our lives, it's given us a full spectrum-laughs, tears, joy, friendship, hate, wonder, disgust etc etc. I know for me personally, I have learned so much from all of you, I can't thank you enough for the shared stories, perspectives and sick fucking clips. From simple trash talk LoLz to having my entire belief system challenged by some of my bros on here, it's been an amazing ride for me and I can't thank you enough. I love y'all and hope the best for you. Please stay in touch my IG is RobcfromSD.

                                                  See you IRL!

                                                      And now if you go to the homepage, which I presume to be https://www.be-mag.com, there's no obvious link to the forums.

                                                        Talks of the board being shut down have been happening over the course of the past couple of months. Simply put, it just isn't the same as it once was. Not sure when the trigger will be pulled but assuming it'll be sometime soon. Been a lot of good laughs on this board. See ya.
