    So in the waning time of SGM I just want to ask everyone in the community some things

    What effect has SGM had on you?
    Has SGM effected your life in any way?
    Was SGM ever a home to you?
    Does SGM hold a place in your heart?
    Will the name or more stick in your head?
    Have you ever met new friends online or IRL through SGM?
    Do you believe SGM was worth it in this moment of your life?
    Did SGM become a relief or accepting place for yourself compared to somewhere else?

    There's a lot more I could've added but I can't think of.

    SGM has been and will always be remembered by me as a good place where I can blow off some steam. It's where I spend 90% of my free time especially since quarantine fucks over any other plan I can make. While I do think I will always remember SGM, it's mostly the idiots I've met on here I will remember.

    Responding to 1 & 8 questions. SGM staff and members has helped me grow as a person due to little events that happened while I stayed here. Was it worth the time here? Yeah it was and I enjoyed all the hilarious moments that happened on the servers.

    SGM gave me a place to have some social interaction. I have no friends in real life that ever talk to me or go "Hey Bacon, let's go hangout or something." So, having this community has been really nice

    Until I joined SGM I had almost NEVER played any co-op games. I hardly had any friends and none of them really played games, so it's nice to finally have a community that plays with me

    Not to sound like a nerd but SGM has always provided me with socialization and a place of community that I sometimes found hard to find in real life. Even down at the deepest point of the hole SGM has always provided relief and purpose for me. To tell you the truth I returned 2 months ago because I was bored and depressed out of my mind after I got out of a 2 year relationship, and SGM provided me with a support group everyday and you guys never even knew, so thank you. I don’t think I’ll ever meet any of you in real life, and that’s okay because I think it be pretty weird to meet up with a dood like Indy or even a weird admin like Pierogi. I will definitely remember SGM as a part of life even when I’m an old man on my death bed because SGM has been a huge part of my life on and off for the past 6 years.

    TLDR; SGM is pretty fucking cool and I will always remember it.

    SeriousTTT ;) was a place I joined when I first bought garry's mod.

    Got banned for RDM. Made an account, didn't get unbanned....I was a determined kid....so I waited it out while I chatted on the forums. I wanted to prove to everyone that I didn't lie in my appeal and I "liked" this server. I mean I didn't hate it, but I literally just joined it.
    Had times during my edgy teenage phase in life where I much enjoyed being a troll.

    As a homeschooler, STTT/SGM forums acted as my social media. I had zero friends growing up, even in high school in which I was still homeschooled. I came here to talk to people. I won probably around 20 games from the community in SGM. I've been given about 150+ dollars in ranks. I've donated about 30+ dollars. This community is very nice despite the fact I have been a huge cunt at times - mostly joking around though.



    Sucks it's ending, but that's life you know. I kind of half-expected this.

    The new servers by Jabba won't last long either. Why not? Well TTT is based on the concept of mafia.... and well no one too popular makes youtube videos on it. The trending "mafia" game is among us, and even most of the hype for it died off fairly fast, because mafia gets boring fairly quick. It is action-packed at times but eventually like all things, the bread gets stale.

    I am sincerely grateful my rank might be transferred over, and hell to support the server I might come out and play. TTT just isn't fun anymore. I think a good bit of the player base is bored from it as well. It just gets old, especially when you binge-play it. You just wanna go play something else that isn't repetitive.

    Figured I might say hour requirements for mods aren't the best way to go about things, as you don't get paid so the only incentive to play "regularly" is just for clout so you don't lose your rank because at the end of the day mods are actually donating their time by being staff, and no one simps for regular players unless you have tits.

    The end has come, and I say why don't we all get on the servers and try to play this Saturday on the 12th. It might be nostalgic to any regulars who are reading this. I haven't been on in years.


    Also Jeff Lynne do be making some bangers yo.

    peace.

    What effect has SGM had on you?
    Made some really good friends a long the way. SGM definitely taught me to be more open to other people's opinions and views. This place also helped me realize how wrong my mentality was when I was younger. I'm sure a part of that was just getting older too, but my interactions here definitely gave me some helpful life lessons.

    Was SGM ever a home to you?
    For a while, it was. It was once a place where I'd log into and be able to talk to a bunch of my friends.

    Does SGM hold a place in your heart?
    SGM itself? No. The people made sgm what it was, highwon ran it well but SGM could have been replaced with any other community

    Will the name or more stick in your head?
    true ogs will remember it as sttt

    Have you ever met new friends online or IRL through SGM?
    duh

    Do you believe SGM was worth it in this moment of your life?
    worth what? Usually people ask this implying there was some kind of sacrifice to be made. It was just a place to chill and post memes and talk to like-minded people. The only thing it cost me was my time and I'd say it was well spent.

    Did SGM become a relief or accepting place for yourself compared to somewhere else?
    Yeah. I felt like everyone here was a goober like me
