Strange Answer is closing doors

Sadly for many of us who frequent the site, Strange Answer will be closing its doors for good, in the first day(s) of November.
Strange Answer started over 3 years ago as a spin-off from our old Top-Greetings site, and many TG community members migrated here. We've had thousands of questions humorously answered and even more captions posted for images. Sadly, Strange Answer is the only site that has to be hosted on a Lunix-based server, while all my other sites are on Windows-based server. For 3 years I've been covering the SA hosting fees from my other sites' revenues, but recently made a business decision to close this site. Our community was small, but dedicated, and I'm sure many of you, like myself, will remember SA for the wits we shared, the laughs it gave us, and friendships that we carried over here from Top-Greetings. Most of us have known each other for so long that we have connected via Facebook too, so we will definitely stay in touch.

It's been a fun ride, gang!

Yours,

Vlad

  • Yes I agree, very sad, it was a lot of fun & now I'm not sure what I will do with all my free time, I guess I'll have to find another girl friend.

  • Does this mean the Fetchmea® Brewery will be closing their doors also?

  • What to say? This makes us all so unhappy, the breakup of our family at such short notice. I love you all and will miss this site more than you can imagine.

  • I'm stunned and saddened by this sad turn of events. I join with all my SA friends, Vlad, in thanking you for all the time and effort and echo all that has been said here.
    While I haven't been a member for as long as many here, I feel as though I've been a part of a very special group.
    I would join with Mc_Alamo in being very interested in joining another spin-off group, if at all possible.
    Once again thanks so very much for allowing me to join you all in a wonderful experience.

  • T-G and SA have been a part of my life for years, now. This feels almost like an amputation...!
    But many thanks for the great ride, Vlad!

  • I almost forgot, I want to thank Admins. for being so dedicated and hardworking to keep our SA running smoothly as long as it did. I really appreciate how you took care of us. Get up and take a bow, you deserve it.

  • My heart is breaking. I feel like I made so many good friends here and I'm going to miss you all. I'm so sorry to see this go. I really hope we can keep up with each other, but it will never be the same again. Vlad, maybe you could make another spin-off from this. Regardless, I want to thank you, Vlad, for letting me get to know and share some laughter with such great people.

  • Very sad indeed. Only the good die young. If I remember right, StrangeAnswer was even awarded the Best New Website Award when it opened. Thanks for letting us have opportunity to play, Vlad!

  • Regarding the exact day and time of the site shutdown... it will depend on the hosting company. My contract with them ends on November 1, but I suspect it will take a couple of days before they shut it down.
