Of course, if the rights are sold, its doubtful the official forum won't be shut down. frown.gif

So what if they shut down the offical forum? The Coles will probably open up their own offical forum for QFG on their website. It only makes sense, after all, they would have the responsablity of opening a new place for fans to hang around.

And I hope that they provide free manuals online for the folks who bought their games off Ebay and winded up without the manual, and thus, being incapable of finishing games like QFG 4.

Well if the Coles get the rights, then the forums at Sierra would not be the offical forums anymore, and Sierra would have no reason to keep them there. I'm sorry, but I really do believe that they would shut them down if the sale of the rights of QFG is made, and that is a compromise we all have to make if QFG is ever going to come back to life.

And if worst came to worst the community could always migrate here, though we would probably lose a lot of members in the process frown.gif - but otherwise the news are great smile.gif
"Mathematics, rightly viewed, possesses not only truth, but supreme beauty -- a beauty cold and austere, like that of sculpture, without appeal to any part of our weaker nature, without the gorgeous trappings of painting or music, yet sublimely pure, and capable of a stern perfection such as only the greatest art can show. The true spirit of delight, the exaltation, the sense of being more than Man, which is the touchstone of the highest excellence, is to be found in mathematics as surely as poetry."

We won't lose anything, there's a million QFG forums out there, I have no doubt all members would find their way into at least one of them.

I would like to know how we can alert these "millions" of fans that we have such a potentially important petition going...

Let's not worry about what happens to the QfG forums just yet. "Sufficient unto the day..."

If you happen to know of any other QfG forums than:

FACS
Sierra
Matt's QfG site
QfGP
Lira's Duchy

then please post the links here and we'll do just that. Thank you. <smile>
