I really hope this site keeps going as long as possible.
You could take things at face value and come to the conclusion that everyone has disappeared and yes, a lot of people have gone.
However, I'm sure I'm not the only one who lurks here from time to time.
I joined almost ten years ago and even with this post, I've still only posted less than 50 times (I believe) in that decade.
According to stats, I haven't logged in since last July, posted since last March and before that, since 2014.
But I know I've visited many times without logging in and even though I rarely have anything to say, this site is a joy to have available.
Of course I am sad that Alizee has not released a new album and I was gutted when her Blonde tour got cancelled (meaning I will probably never get to see her in real life), but this site is the last 'thing' of Alizee that someone like myself has to hold on to.
It's wonderful. Like a time capsule with many of our old posts
, in some cases (I believe) up to 500(?!).
You can relive the wonderful early years of this site
, when so many people posted and often and that initial joy (and shortly thereafter, lets be honest, obsession (at least for a good couple of years or so)) of Alizee was capturing so many new people.
Even modern social media used by Alizee directly; Facebook / Twitter etc, will never provide the same experience as this site.
I do not care for modern social media (and I never cared for Alizee Forum (maybe it was just too bright / white - the dark and red makes this place like a secret little cave, a hidden gem of Alizeeness
)). THIS is my Alizee site.
(So wonderful that the layout has barely changed. Guess what? I don't like change! This site is like going back in time - such a joy!)
I believe a guy called Brad started this site (apologies if I am incorrect), so I would like to say thank you to Brad for starting this site.
I would also like to say a big thank you to Scruffydog. Scruffy, I don't think we have messaged privately since the very early years and I haven't been particularly vocal on this forum even during the peak years.
Nonetheless, I think we can all acknowledge the massive contribution you have made over the years and I would say you have kept this site alive in recent years, so THANK YOU!
I don't know if there are any other long term lurkers, including those who used to post frequently, but if there are, maybe post that you still visit from time to time.
For the administrators who may start to think the site is dead / dying, please hold on for as long as you can. I / We need this site.
From 'Moi Alizee US' to 'Alizee America', some of us are still here... this is our Alizee fix.
