Hi @malelover

Thanks for taking the time to introduce yourself and to say hello!  What other forums did you join?? Sounds like you had quite an adventure on that forum.

Did you come over from BGP?  If you did, be sure to join the BGPForum club (go to Clubs > BGPForum)

I referred in my introduction on Chum Forum. CF was led by "a refined English gentleman", The Red Zed (with his well known "English Stiff Upper Lip"). Yes, it was an adventurous journey. It sounds like a career: forum member > invited club member > club agent > moderator > administrator. During these years I met many interesting people. What I took with me are experiences that had and still have a positive impact on my life. Some of these members are also here.

The other forum I mentioned was the sister forum Samarkandsworld. The Collective was another community to which I belonged. Unlike other forums you could not register there. You needed an invitation from an active member. It was the spot where the banished staff of Sammies continued their work.

Very interesting history. I was actually a member of Chum Forum in the last 1.5 years but the activity was non-existent. It's how I met @Cool_a, who was the only guy actually trying to make any constructive suggestions for Chum! That's how I eventually found my way to BGP.  I'm glad that we share this same history.  

I'm not as familiar with Samarkandworld although I thought they were absorbed into Chum? I might be mistaken.

@JoelR It's really interesting that we have a similar history. Honestly, I do not know what happened after I left. The activity was a steady up and down.I think CF had the glorious years behind it. But I did not expect anything else from Cool_a. He is friendly little sperm with a big heart.❤️

Samarkandsworld was the heterosexual counterpart of CF. Tons of pictures with boobs and vaginas were to be found there. The right place for a gay man like me.😣 I liked to visit the chat areas. Jokes, music or movies are universal topics.

Samarkandsworld was handed over to The Red Z. I think it was in early 2014. That's the only thing I know. The exact motives remained unclear. It was the time when the staff was banished. For me it was a shame how the people, like T, wanks, and yaboo, who volunteered to keep the Forum running for years, were rewarded. But they all found a new space and have taken along the good memories.

 

@bakersman94 : Thank you, Wes. It's very nice to meet you as well. Canada is located in North America. West, East, South will therefore be my mnemonic. When I read Hamilton, I was mentally at a very different place. Hamilton Island, Australia, one of the most beautiful places for me. We spend there a few months of the year regularly.

Really nice to see you here malelover. I do wonder why we all have this love/hate relations to CF, a community most old BGP members came from?

This seems to be something similar to the Stockholm syndrome. LOL

Yeah well, I don't know. He did a lot of good things, but he knew how to upset people and used that "talent". Bulling and cheating, reading other members PM and wasn't smart enough to understand when we tricked him up, with false PMs.

Neither do I, @R.R. 

You admire Dr Jekyll (brilliant, nice, helpful) but you cannot stand Mr Hyde. Often those members were affected who could not defend themselves or wanted to. When someone is shy and is about to find their way in life, they rarely tangle with the authority. It is dangerous in my conviction to offend someone in an online forum for whatever reason. It is not possible to know in which mental state the person is currently. We rarely know the personal life situation. After a shitty day, an offensive word can then be another slap in the face.

I often remember a member of CF. He lived in Damascus, where he worked as a doctor in a hospital. He lived there as a gay man, Christian by religion. One day when we had a conversation on Skype, he told me that he had narrowly escaped a bomb attack on his way to work. We talked about the different topics. He ended our conversation by saying: "I wish you both a peaceful night, have seen too many dead bodies today.". Not only that I was grounded again. Since then I have never ever thought again that I have major problems.

Unfortunately, he was also one of those who were attacked. He was just looking for distraction.

On the other hand, CF was not all Z. I like to remember DCD, Debit, Foolishheart, Redday, Braddude, ErikMartin, Waltertt, Reggie, Scaper, Kiteboard, Winnie, Mauro, KCO, Beachbumm, Manuver, and many many more.

So true, but not limited to online forums or something like that.

There is still a lot to say about the Grey forum. It's of course not an open wound but ...

I've been thinking (not something I'm good at) and after an earlier Chum outburst I got the feeling from Cool_a that it is best to let Chum be forgotten and buried. But the next time Chum comes up, here we go again. Maybe we are not finished as yet? 

The Chumers were an awesome bunch of people and yes malelover I could add to the list: Jumper (a tru sweetheart, RIP my dear friend), jo90, snatchewe, Bubbleboy, Archangel NeXus, Hairy Pottymouth, dirkdiggler, Kat Kenobi, mercedez, sexyfrenchie, Anakin, the little angry red headed Bavarian LS and many more!

I dont know. Maybe we look at it differently. I was told yesterday that I sound like I still hold a grudge. That is not right. I understand that "dark" was an unfortunate choice of words, gray would have been better. Everyone knew when people talked about the dark or gray forum that they talked about Chum, because the default skin was always dark-gray. What I wrote in quotes was not sarcastic. They were quotes from something Zibala had written. But no matter.

Chum was a part of our lives. We had good and bad experiences. I want to remember the good ones, but do not want to forget the bad ones. The latter let me be more attentive today.

I agree with that. We could fill the list with many more names. 🙂

Thank you for asking, Wes. He got a job offer and now lives and works in another country.
