    This is extremely sad. Was expecting a buyout, so that the name and our stats could live on, but I guess mr red wanted to retire along with all of his belongings.

    It's hard to predict what the future might hold for us. Will this change actually drive more traffic or will this transfer seperate us.

    Anyways, gg. Thank you @Highwon for creating this wonderful community and for the memory and friends that we've made along the way.

    I know a lot of the comments here are meming so excuse me for being a bummer;

    I remember when the initial shutdown thread was made, which honestly wasn't that long ago when you look at SGM's total life span. But I remember the gut-wrenching feeling I had when I read that post that day. I posted this exact gif (or close enough to) of Yoda grabbing his chest in pain, during Revenge of the Sith. Memes aside, when you dive deeper into that sequence, it takes place shortly as order 66 takes place which as I am sure a lot of you are familiar with, is when all thousands of the Jedi were branded enemies of the Republic, where they were swiftly executed and hunted down in quick fashion. Yoda's reaction to this is him sensing all that loss, all at once on an unprecedented scale. Now, I don't wanna compare SGM's death to Revenge of the Sith which is my favorite, and one of the most memeable movies of all time, but I'd like to think there is some parallel there. Whether you've been here 3 years or 7 like myself, and even longer, then you'd be able to relate to SGM being one of those things in your life that remained constant. Similar to Yoda, seeing that shutdown message despite if it was expected or not, still felt like a close friend was leaving, only to leave you with all the good and shitty memories they created while you were alongside them.

    That being said, I still feel those feelings now when I was initially told about this, then seeing this thread. I know this is a transition, and in many great ways, that's going to open a ton of new doors for both content and leadership and many many more things. But, it doesn't change the fact that it still hurts. For me personally, I've been playing on SGM since I was about 12 or so. I quite literally grew up playing Trouble in Terrorist Town. I'd watch YouTubers play it, only to play a knock-off version in Minecraft, which finally lead me to Garry's Mod itself and this community. I remember being able to wake up early on some 6th grade school days (which is a power I wish I still held now) so I could play 30-60 mins worth of TTT before the first hour. Close friends of mine have always jokingly bullied me for sticking to this game, as well as other ex *cough banned cough* SGM members who meme me for sticking around the staff team. Even though this game is very old and some of those jokes do have some truth in them, TTT and SGM as a whole have always had that charm that brought me back into the mix of things time and time again.

    Like @danstorm just said above me, I don't know what any of us should expect for the future of this community for better or for worse. However, that being said it doesn't change the fact that many of us have made tons of cherishable memories here and hundreds and thousands of hours worth of game time, let it be in TTT or alongside friends we've met here in other games.

    My life in the past week has been a zig-zag of emotions, so thinking about SGM's name's final demise, almost makes me wanna shed a manly tear or two when looking back on the last seven years. I know this Garry's Mod sub-community may not mean nearly as much to others, as after all it is just a game, but still. Thank you SGM and all the hundreds of people I've met during this long happy and sad and shitter-filled ride.

    I'm surprised by some of the names I'm seeing but nonetheless, I wish you the best of luck moving forward @Jabba the Slut @Pierogi @Temar. I'm both anxious and thrilled to see what comes next, you have a lot to live up to, no pressure.

    Oh and also
    @Highwon well played. There's a lot of people which were in dark place in their lives that used your community as a place to cool off and don't think about real life.

    You changed lives man, atleast mine if no one else.

    God bless
