Can't believe this forum is closing down![April Fool]

I've just learned that the WeQuit forum will be closing its doors (so to speak) shortly - sometime in April. Something to do with funding shortfalls I'm told.

This is indeed very sad news. The forum and the people on it have been instrumental and a major key to my success. I'll survive, of course, because I've been off the nicotine for a year now.

But I feel horrible on behalf of the newbies who have just started their journey. Where will they turn for support and information?

Well, before it's shut down for the last time, I'd like to thank all of you who've been there with me to help me get through this transition. Couldn't have done it without you.

By the way, I'd be willing to make a small donation to help keep the forum alive. Maybe if we all chipped in, it could keep going.

  • Hmmm, do you have a link for that?

  • Whaaaa?!! :eek:

    Surely not?

  • The memo only came out to the team today, how have you found out so soon? There wasn't supposed to be a formal announcement until tomorrow :confused::confused:

    I'd rather not say who tipped me off because that's not really what's important at the moment. I'm still in shock as I imagine others will be when they get the notification.

  • No!

    I can't manage without the forum. It's the one thing that keeps me going!

  • Please say this is a late "April Fool" joke. SURELY:eek:

  • I probably shouldn't have said anything until the official announcement. I apologize for jumping the gun.

  • By 11:55am, you mean April Fool's! Right?

  • I cannot tell a lie. (Well, actually, I did just do that.)

    This is indeed an April Fool's Day prank. :D:D

  • Just so you know, this is not a very funny prank.

    Not amused :(

  • What Max and Sarah said. :rolleyes:

    Stupid ... Mean ... Nasty people ...

  • Just so you know, this is not a very funny prank.

    Not amused :(

    My sincere apologies.

  • Not funny!!

  • Ahh well I thought I would play along with it but when people started believing it I said to come clean.

    Sorry if anyone's heart missed a beat.

  • My sincere apologies.

    Bugger off with your sincere apologies.

    I have a frying pan and I'm. It afraid to use it if I have to.

    Seriously, what about those people reading this thread on day one ? Isn't it a little cruel?

  • My sincere apologies.

    NOT FUNNY!!! Jeez. :( I have heard off talk of closing the forum before,BHF want to move things to Facebook and Twitter,so this was quite feasible.

    Poor effort that chaps.:confused:

    Now you've upset Max. Evil creatures :(

    No, it wasn't cruel. It was an April Fool's Joke, and I assume the people reading on Day One are grown ups, too, who can take a joke.

    I came clean quickly and didn't let it go beyond a few responses. If you don't want my apology, so be it.

  • Well it's nice to know that's you and the moderators find it funny and not in the least bit worrying for those of us who rely on this daily.

  • Suggest Mods that you delete this thread since the title will deter new quitters.:rolleyes:

    People don't come here every day just to look at the scenery guys,this is important stuff going on here,do not treat it or them casually...

    Thank you.(through gritted teeth)

    Really Max?

    You should take a look at some of the tripe you post on here before making such statements.

  • Well to be honest I didn't think anyone would believe it, I've changed the title to state that its an April Fool.

  • Well to be honest I didn't think anyone would believe it, I've changed the title to state that its an April Fool.

    Thanks.

    I questioned it when I read the posts over again, but I fully believed it de the first few posts.

    Just don't think there's any need really.

  • Hate April Fool :mad:

    Hate April Fool :mad:

    April Fool's pranks are great fun for children and even teenagers. However, we are all adults here and we aren't posting on this forum for the crack really. There's a reason.

    If you want a laugh, tell a f*****g joke.

    At least everyone might laugh with you then.

  • Get a grip Sarah. You've made your point, you don't have to keep making DGee feel bad :confused:

    Yeah, I'm sure he feels real bad.

    Like you've said, point made now so I'm happy :)

  • Hahahaha I Love it :D:D:D

  • PMSL really and truly. Well done DGee, you brightened up my day! :D

  • I awoke the children at 6.00am telling them we have 4 foot of snow, but it backfired as they were tired and grumpy most of the day.

  • I'm with you, Haze. There seems to have been a bit of SOH failure today. You bad lad, DGee....

  • ...fart so as not to pollute the atmosphere inside? How considerate of you!;):D

    Exactly! :D

  • I am staying In bed and offline next April 1st.-Vike

    Nicely done DGee.

  • *finds thread quite amusing all round*

  • Cracking gag, shame I missed it at the time as can guarantee I would have fallen for it and been right moody.

    Even I can see how some people may find this funny now :o

    But, whilst I like a good joke as much as the next person, I didn't really find it a joke yesterday when I thought the site was going to be closed down :(

    Suppose it'll teach me not to be so gullible from now on.
