I just noticed today that the website has vanished from existence, so I thought it'd be alright to pay my respects to it. Rest in peace FFF. Even though you were never as great as Peelified, had long periods of time without any posts, and was the home of several KurtPikachu fanfics, you will always have a place in my heart as that other Futurama forum.

Discuss and mourn the loss of the site here.

Yep, R.I.P. FFF. I think one day PEEL will concentrate all remaining Futurama activity in itself.

Yep, R.I.P. FFF. I think one day PEEL will concentrate all remaining Futurama activity in itself.

Y'know, one day PEEL will go dark too. As much as FFF was an awful place full of awful people, and deserved to be de-networked, it's an example of what happens to the vast majority of content on the internet. Eventually, it goes away.

One day, it'll happen to PEEL. It'll happen to your favourite online game. It'll happen to Myspace once somebody at Microsoft realises that nobody uses it anymore, it'll happen to tumblr if the proposed internet copyright "protection" laws that people keep lobbying various governments with ever become reality, and it'll probably happen even to giants like google and Facebook (although if they ever get replaced by something, the likelihood is that the internet will have become a completely unrecognisable landscape to the likes of us).

One day, everything ends. Everything gets turned off.

At some point, the sun will go out.

At some point, space will contract to nothing as matter ceases to exist. Even the universe that we live in has a finite lifespan.

With all of that said, the shutdown of a third-rate niche fan website devoted to a cancelled sci-fi cartoon and populated almost exclusively by idiots should be a surprise to nobody. Hopefully, it'll be years yet before PEEL becomes that much of a waste of effort for Marc to maintain.

Yes, but when it happens, we just need to go make a new Futurama forum. You know, with blackjack and hookers.

I don't think PEEL has ever had a real rival, to be honest. The FFF was a rival to PEEL in the sense that a pebble has a total gravitational pull rivalling that of the moon.

Where's all this incessant complaining been going on? I haven't noticed much of that going on.

Maybe I'm just out of touch.

Maybe the few that didn't already try this forum out and dismiss it as "elitist" and
"snobby".

Also, I'm upset by this because some of the original script to "The Late Phillip J. Fry" was over there.  frown

To be fair, Peel can be a bit elitist, but I think that on the whole we're more welcoming and inclusive than typical message boards.

A pity to see that forum gone...
It's saddening to see such a piece of work -in which the admins invested time and money, that did build up a community, that gave lots of users entertainment and maybe desperately needed fun- be gone for good.
So, sad to see it is gone, happy to know it was there, and my deepest respect for the productivity and work that was invested for other folks to enjoy.

I think that PEEL is a rather welcoming community to newcomers - IF they act like decent human beings, and use complete sentences.

I would welcome anyone from the closed forum, so long as they met those criteria.

The only issue is that everyone on this forum has a different set of rules on what makes a decent human being.

Obviously, the only correct set of rules is the one I adhere to. I, and no other!

What exactly was this forum?  Were there really horrible people in it?  Glad I stayed away if this is true.

I wouldn't call any of them truly horrible or anything, but they were very different from most of the users on here and didn't quite mesh well.  The user you seemed to dislike for caring way too much about the safety of the characters for example, was a big user over there. 

The forum was also a lot more relaxed when compared to this place.  I did actually make an account a while back, but only used it once to ask about a script a user over there owned.  He never did respond.

I wish I'd been around long enough to see them.

I made an account on FFF, actually, the same day I joined PEEL. But I never posted. This was my first choice, and you guys didn't chew me up and spit me out like most forums do, so I guess this is my Futurama forum now.

In the wise words of Richard M. Stallman, "I'm not glad he's dead, but I'm glad he's gone". FFF was full of slack-jawed morons (as opposed to our Slack Jawed Moron) and PEEL bashers. Adios, contaminos.

I've no idea what that might stand for. Futurama's Manly Message Board? Fuck My Massive Badger? From My Massive Balls? Freako's Monstrously Mucus-y Bottom?

Wait, wait, wait. That last one's probably it. Forget I asked.

Hey now, it's just a website. It's not like anyone died or anything...  hmpf

To clarify, though, FFF was a forum which, on top of being an eyesore in general, consisted largely of inane discussion that was vacuous at best. More importantly, the people in charge of this website engaged in behaviours such as "banning new members purely because they also have a PEEL account." I don't exactly consider the site's closure to be a tragedy. Not to mention there have been far more negative statements made about FFF on this board before. As for my comment - "good riddance" was in regards to the fact that the moderators/administrators that were abusing their power there are no longer able to do so.

I am more than happy to welcome any former FFF members seeking refuge, if - as you yourself said - they act like decent human beings, and use complete sentences. But from what I saw of the site, it seems as though people like this were in the minority there. I'm still hopeful we might get a few good people coming over, but I'm dubious, for the reasons mentioned above.

I am just saying, without FFF, Kurt will remain at FMMB.  And FMMB is more Kurt's true calling than FFF ever was.

Kurt's true calling

Kurt's true calling is to slip through the cracks in reality and rescue Leela from the abusive clutches of the universe in which she lives, presumably at the same time as Onuki zaps fry with some kind of gay love beam and claims the poor goofbag as his husband.

The effects of this will ripple through to our universe, where it will be manifested as nobody ever being able to draw Leela without also drawing Kurt saving her from peril, and nobody being able to draw Fry without also drawing Onuki saving him from a lack of being sodomised at that particular time.

This will finally kill the Futurama Madhouse Message Board.

I found it a challenging maze to to navigate through.  It was almost as if the conversations themselves (if they could so be called) were some sort of super complex informational system arranged by some sort of higher intelligence sentient being disguised in the form of a large group of random, dribbling idiocy and ignorance for its own sake. Boy were those people fun to have fun with though!  Seriously, you could spam there all day long, get congratulated for it, get reprimanded for it, apology, get acceptance, be reviled, get some more praise, and finally be banned because they realized your account name started with peel... all in the same day!  Oh, and also, one of the members would threaten to kill you with their brother's moderator account... if only they had access to it.  Also, apparently all the members there were internet married to one another, and virtually all of the conversations were incomprehensible because there were a thousand signatures and images hid any of the message contents for thousands of miles at a time.  Just pure, insane, chaotic bliss.  How we shall miss thee!
