Looks like InkedAngel and NowImNothing will be the final two premium members. Their subscriptions end 2/9/13.

I will keep it going at least through end of March for the latest round of closings.

Main reason for closing is really no time to keep an eye on it, dwindling posts and no funds coming in anymore. I will still be paying for my server, but since this doesn't support that bill anymore, and the software is out of date, I figure just close up shop.

The site will still be here, just the forum closed to new posts and no PMs. You will still be able to read the forum for a while longer unless it gets hacked or something (the old software is a problem).

Thanks for giving us a good place to get BBV out of our systems over the years, Chris. And thanks for giving us warning and not just shutting things down.

I think a lot of us have done that already, but I can't remember where and its way too much work to search through it on my phone.

The truth:

I never worked for Blockbuster. I am an actor named Robert Iler. I was on a television series where my character was supposed to get a job at BBV, so I researched it and wound up here. Turns out I would only get one scene in the store, but I liked it here so much I decided to stay.

I lurked here for years before I finally had enough and registered so I could do some venting of my own. Even then, I didn't post much because I was so afraid of someone finding out who I was, and losing my job as a result. Looking back now, I don't know why I cared so much; I ran myself into the ground trying to keep my store afloat, and fought to keep a job that I ended up despising. I left bbv on my own a few months ago, and it was the best decision I ever made. Just wanted to say thanks to everyone for sharing their stories over the years. It definitely helped me get through the bad days.

I heard this news a few days ago via Facebook where I'm still in touch with the regulars from my glory days on IHBB. If any of you want to add me, you know who you are. Send me a friend request and be sure to tell me who you are on IHBB! Facebook.com/Brandon.McCleney

I know my visits became less and less frequent following my departure from the company in either 2008 or 2009, and I know I stopped visiting all together over the years, but I've never forgotten the good old days. Chris, thank you for allowing us to create those memories on your site.

I'll keep checking in for an official D-Day, but if one of you regulars knows before I do, send me a message on Facebook so I can at least make sure this isn't my final post.

Love you guys and wish everyone the best.

Flame on, bitches.

Love,
The One and Only Resident Flamer
