Default Anyone remember Buizel's Island?

That one fansite that went down suddenly without any warning? Yeah, I'm the one who created that. I have no way to verify my identity, but I just wanted to see if any of my old site visitors are around. It would be interesting to reconnect. And I can explain what happened to the website, if anyone's curious about that.

Well, first Awardspace had a major crash on their free server. I was pretty mad, I complained a bunch in their forums. The server was down for at least a few months. And then when the server went back up, my site was gone. Apparently an admin deactivated it because of all the complaining -_-

So then I gave them a nasty review on some site, and I was contacted by an admin that I would get the site restored if I took down that review. Lo and behold they did it, but all my content was gone. If I just saved local copies this wouldn't be an issue. But I didn't, so rip. I guess wayback machine had some stuff, I could always try to cobble some of it together, lol. But I've mostly moved on with my life. I just kinda remembered this whole thing yesterday and got a huge nostalgia wave.

I was on your site a lot, as BlackChaosMew, I remember really enjoying it! I get nostalgia waves every now and then and come back to sites like this and Eevee's HQ/ Route 50 to see what's going on. I really miss it when I remember, but then adult life eats up another few months of my life.

Hello. I'm an online old timer, too. :P I was the owner of a pokemon forum called "The Secret Pikachu Hangout" (which i deleted over all my own dramatic posts on there about how 'awful' it is to be a teenager and stuff....), and used to be a fangirl over Ash Ketchum.

I have no idea how many people around here other than me (and probably Butterfree too) still remember all that. I used to also SPAM the guest book on this site a lot. I was a serious n00b xD

It still amazes me how dead the TCoD community is now o_O;;; You people I swear used to be even more successful than Serebii's back in the day....

And, sadly, I do not remember your site. I don't think I really went on pokemon fan sites a lot in general during the sinnoh era ^_^;;; At least, I don't remember doing so...aha....

I love Korrina and I don't care what anyone thinks! :P *snuggle's her* I think she's a real hottie and if you think poorly about me for having a harmless fictional crush or for simply liking another girl thats your own problem. *squeals happily^///^*
