I find it sad and somewhat insulting to the long term members, and site supporters who have paid money to help support this site.

it's been fun!

Seeing the state of the forums is now making me regret paying to become a supporter - even though it was only for a short period of time. That said, its time for me to say goodbye! May be I'll see you again some day!

Goodbye ATA.....

It's a shame, I joined a year or two too late and never really got involved too much but I have followed for many years, looks like I missed out, the thing is there can be a successful forum and a fun friendly one, ATA was both.

Dear everyone previously on the ATA team.

Fuck you.

It may not be eloquent but in response to such utter disregard for anyone but your own selfish selves, it's warranted.

  • Fuck you for leaving without any statement.
  • Fuck you for not having the decency to sign the site over to somone who cared.
  • Fuck you for not even shutting it down but instead choosing to watch the remains fester and putrify.

Fuck you. Fuck you. Fuck you.

Such a shame that my last memories of the place that I spent much of my teen years contributing to and eagerly checking on a daily basis will be so bitter. The death of this place is entirely your fault.

And oh yeah... Did I forget to say - Fuck you?

Over and out.

Bit harsh!

The issue is that one person unilaterally owns ATA, and that person has done very little towards the site by comparison to the team he inherited the website from and the people within his team (notably Dan).

However, this person now makes a considerable but not life-changing amount from the Google Ad revenue. Google just about anything to do with Alton Towers and ATA is within the top 5 results. Lucky him.

It's just sad that all the work and goodwill Steve and Mac put in way back when; and the continual hard work of Dan (who understandably has had enough) are now sitting on effectively an archive making one person who had little to do with any of it (other than being in the right place at the right time) pennies.

I don't necessarily think it's too late to make something of it, but I think it's too late now to make ATA the day-to-day Towers fan resource it was always intended as.
