Saying Goodbye...
« on: March 27, 2017, 11:59:05 AM »
Well, I see that there has not been much activity since I got the site back up.  As I mentioned in a previous thread, site activity has been way down.  Coupled with our use of Discord for chat and in-game coms along with HostGator's increasing incompetence, I will be shutting down the site. 

I am working out some issues with Host Gator now as they have been double billing me and I'm not sure if this will result in the immediate closure of the site or if it will remain up to the end of the year.

Either way I urge everyone to connect to the DigitalBBQ Facebook page (link is above and to the right) and to download Discord and join us.  If the site does go down again it will probably not come back up.

Thank you and it's been real!

I have enjoyed my time here Tim...met lot's of great people who I was able to game with...talk about tech and movies and food and life in general. We all need to stay in touch on Facebook or discord.

This gen of consoles, along with Steam and other apps, has taken away the need for sites such as DBBQ. It is tough to recruit new players, as they match up with people online...and now that Xbox Live, PSN, and Steam all have groups or communities, which I know there is a DBBQ one on Live...not sure about PSN, as well as Steam has a DBBQ group...that is a good way to keep in touch.

Thanks to Brett and Steve starting the site so many years ago, and to Tim for taking it over and dealing with the site host.

I will update my user names tonight when I am home.

Wow, while it's shocking to see the Q leave, I understand it's time to move forward with our means of communication.

The discord chat works well! Having Facebook to schedule events isn't a bad idea either.

Lots of great times here and great memories to boot.

The people I met here are what made this place a joy. I am not seeing a facebook link anywhere. Can someone direct link me to it?

Hate to hear about this, but don't get on here near as much as I used to either.  It's been a great place.   :(

Glad to have "somewhat" meet everyone I have on here.
All give some, but some give all. Thank you veterans for my freedom.

That facebook page is pretty slow too but I'll try to post more content there.

I will try to get more content up as well on the Facebook page. The Discord app/site is really nice...and runs in the background on PC pretty effortlessly

This site made gaming for me. Never would have had the fun and enjoyment I got from XBox without it. My interest lost steam when the players went to PC and at the same time I didn't have the time to dedicate to gaming anymore.

Thanks to all the players I enjoyed playing with. I still remember the old days of Gears Night and Battlefield Nights and of course all the Forza racing with a big smile.

I too, miss our Xbox nights, Seeker.  You are always welcome to come join us on Discord just to chat.  Maybe one day you'll make the switch to PC!  ;)
