Well. I felt like no matter how hard we tried, this was going to happen eventually. There were just too many problems and too few benefits to keeping the chat alive and getting rid of it is a burden off the shoulders for everyone who cares about this site. As I've said before, we are a literature site, not a chatroom, and I think we were treated as the latter for far too long.
Now we can finally focus on creepypastas once more. No more worrying over modless nights, no more pointless arguing that goes on for days in the forums, much less drama, no more chat to distract us from what the site's real purpose always has been and always will be. It's a win-win to me. The people who want to chat can chat somewhere else. There's plenty of other places you could go.
The only good things about chat was meeting all of you. You all made my days in the chat a good time and I am happy to call you all my friends. It really was fun while it lasted, most of the time at least. Thanks to all of you, and to everyone else I didn't mention because I just woke up about thirty minutes ago. >.< I'll add to this list in the future when I remember you again.
My skype is always open for anyone who wants to talk to me. If not, just drop me a message and I can get on Trollpasta, Spinpasta (the new one, not the defunct old one) or maybe even a more special chat. I hope you all had a good New Year's Eve. Enjoy our site now as it was always meant to be.
