I do too, but when the plug was pulled on the website, people tend to scatter and look around for another home.

It's early days here at SyntaxBomb, but I've already put on my comfy slippers and made myself at home lol.   ;D

...it will be nice if it is still a live..thats for sure..but, me personally, stayed there because of community which was very original and quite different from what i have seen elsewhere...having in mind that most folks i have seen there, already migrated here, makes me feel right at home..after all, as i said, i was there because community, not some aged outdated web site never change..

I think it might take a while, but most will find their way here.  I didn't realize anything had gone down until trying to open the command reference in the docs...

i think that is necessary to change the graphical layout of syntax bomb to make it 'similar" to original site... this can make this a new home.

The look (and feel) already changed quite a bit for it to be more familiar.
You should have seen it when we got here first:  plain white walls,  the ceiling was hanging down, big letters of  graffiti spread everywhere.. There were even signs that a hobo slept in here and in corner there was a half devoured deer.  :P

Qube really did a great job. He should post a screenshot of the orginal view.

Takes a little getting used to but you'll feel at home soon after the initial sadness. I'm no longer missing it, especially as "I've turned" to AGK which is really some sort of Blitz3D 2.0 and has a section on the forums here.

Few characters are missing still though. For instance RemiD, Flanker, Guy Fawkes to name a few..  :-\

Indeed, ancient styled even when it was new. lol

I think the 'O' in the tittle logo should be a bomb as in the fav icon. Let me post this elsewhere.. ;)

It's gone, but IMHO we really need the christmas lights in december, just for the nostalgia. And the bomb idea is good, I couldn't resist (the bomb icon is actually public domain license taken from Pixabay):

Thanks, even from my point of view (perfectionist) it really looks good for the 5 minutes I spent working on it. ;D
