........But I'm afraid that my "Donnie's Lab" TMNT Forum over at Proboards is no more. I'm not entirely sure WHY it was taken down by the Proboards Staff, although they DID send me a notification to my Admin's Inbox at the forum, and a later e-mail notification to my regular e-mail addy, but, due to different reasons, I didn't get around to checking either one til it was too late, and the forum was already gone.
As y'all can imagine, I'm still rather stunned by this, but, at THIS point, there's not a whole heckuvva lot that I can do to get it back. And, unfortunately, while it was great fun, and a great experience, I just have too much going on in my (real, offline) life right now to contend with being a forum admin. I may try again later, but, for right now, I'm just going to worry about getting into all the OTHER forums that I'm just a member of, and participating in them. (NOT an easy task, considering that I dove nose-first into an entire DIFFERENT fandom from TMNT last year, and am now thoroughly immersed in THAT one. To the determent of all the OTHER fandoms that I usually play in, sadly!)
So, to ALL of my loyal staff and members of my much-loved and now-defunct "Donnie's Lab", I'm very, VERY sorry for this, but many, MANY thanks for being such loyal members there, and for making my FIRST (and HOPEFULLY not LAST!) experience at running a forum a wonderful, wonderful experience. I hope we get to do it again, sooner or later.
Oh, and a very, very SPECIAL shout-out and thank you goes to doomiscool, the very talented member/Moderator there who made the mega-cool skins trhat we had over there. Hopefully, we can work again soon, bro.
Well, that's it, folks. It was a fun experience, and it was fun while it lasted, but them's the breaks. May we do it again soon.
