Hello,

I'm an old user of the http://www.sailormoon.com forums. I'm aware they took the sailormoon.com website down and grouped all the mail.com sites into one. As far as I know, the forums don't even exist anymore.. but are there any old users who used to go on there? I was a long term user; around 7-10 years (mainly role playing) and I set up my own branch of Sailor Senshi + forums. If anyone remembers.

Does anyone know why they got rid of the forums?

Ah yes, I remember the forums. I was on there a lot, but I don't know why they got rid of them. I don't even remember my username :lol:

I remember it as well, and to be honest I was crushed when it closed down. I had a lot stored on that account, but didn't check enough when I got older.

Because it belonged to a for-profit company. They thought that a good domain name will guarantee a flow of money without much effort - much like many other companies from the dotcom bubble period. When that didn't happen, they closed the website.

I vaguely remember sailormoon.com from when I was a kid. I found it because I typed in the address looking for Sailor Moon sites, since at the time I had no idea what a search engine was. XD

I may as well explain what the place was, It was basically a sailor moon message board that originated around 02, The site shut its doors in 2008. So like I usually I do I tried the wayback machine, The problem? You have to login to view the site which makes it impossible to view without consulting a time lord. I've overheard from someone that if you had some sort of e-mail account you can view the archives but so much time has passed since I have forgotten nearly everything I did there. I've came here to ask because I'd like to see if a mod from there still exists in the fandom, And why it was shut down. If I had an infinite cash sum, I would rebuild and re-find every member again. People can say what they will about it's over abundance of RPG's and it may have been a cash scam, But it was many peoples only outlet including mine and I would kill to see it again!

Well I think it shut it's doors (I haven't been on it, I'm just guessing) because there was no new Sailor Moon material coming, which a lot of other Sailor Moon websites did as well.

Although PGSM came in 2003, I think only die-hard Sailor Moon fans knew of it's existence.

Anyway, it'll be hard to find someone from there, it's been 6 years after all.

Yep, Couldn't be more right. And that bit of creativity didn't last long, From 2005 to 2010 Sailor moon was pretty much dead.

It's funny what a few months can do, eh?

☹ it, I would murder to see those archives, The song Dance with my father again comes to mind.
To go to my home....again, I'm actually crying now, It meant oh so much to me. If I encountered you while visiting, Just remember....I love you and in the name of the moon love is eternal!!! ☹ I get too emotional sometimes....

If anyone has a screenhot or anything! I would kill to see it! Hell, If I had all the money in the world I'd hunt down all the members and re-build the site!

You don't need all the money in the world. Some $10,000 or so would be enough to buy the domain, I think. As to members, with domain name like that and decent SEO work, you'll have enough members in no time.

But the e-mail server still works perfectly, POP/IMAP/SMTP are supported. That's why my primary e-mail is at sailormoon.com since 2005 when I became a moonie :happy:

There's also some disk space for users (however, I didn't test it seriously).

I remember using the site (2004-ish?) in some kind of email system but it soon enough shut down or went away for awhile, IIRC. But around that time I'd usually browse PrincessSerenity.net (and other lots of other sites) and post my fanfics there.

That's it! It gave you a special E-mail with Sailor moon in it, I think it went like this IIRC
JoeBloggs@SailorMoon

It was shut down in 2008 but I over heard if you have an account you can still get in and access the archives, I'd kill to do that!

I do too! I just Googled around to see this thread to find out too. God...it was such a big part of my childhood online! I used to be mean and not so nice, but I regret it everyday. >-<

I loved being able to use the chatroom and the forum to talk to people on there about IRL and all that other stuff.

Lol, yeah. I remember you being very rude and condescending to newcomers who weren't 'elite' and very sweet to the other 'elites'. Wasn't very nice in retrospect, pretty uncool =^_^=

Are you referring to sailormoon.com community or some member in this thread? :blueghost:

I hate to bump this, but after so many years I kinda wish the admins/mods told us about it's closure. It wouldn't have been so hard on us veterans of the site. Here's what I do remember..

The mods/admins just stopped logging in and moderating the chat at night(my timezone CST) outta nowhere. There was no moderation for a long time, and that was kinda when some of us suspected the site was gonna close down. If I remember right, it was ran by Outblaze, some company in Asia. I remember when they hired volunteer moderators for the chat and forums and wanting to be one badly. XD

I was on that site since..2006 or so? Maybe even earlier, but forget. I only remember the community on sailormoon.com being kind of elitist and rude to "moonies". I admit to being one of them, and also becoming an elitist myself, even though I was a hated elitist by the others.

I forgot my actual username and such, but remember I always went under something with "Kikyo" there due to my obsession with the InuYasha anime at that time. There were good times, and bad times for me.

I'm only in contact with ONE....yes...ONE person I've met from there and even then she's always busy now. I've lost connection with my old friends. I recall all the elites and older members were planning a reunion and it had happened successfully in 2009-2010 or so.

Anyway, that's really about all I gotta say! Ask any questions.

I only ever visited there a few times but I remember seeing so many petitions and made up rumors that Cartoon Network was going to finally bring Sailor Moon back to Toonami.

Sorry for responding and bumping as well, but i remember being on SM.com as well during the good ol days of AOL. Although, I remember encountering nothing but pedophiles in my stay there. This was when I was in Middle school, so around 2001-2003ish. It seems that I was on there way before you guys, hence the different experiences lol

Ah, I remember being on there! I was there probably 2001-2004-ish? When we still used AOL regularly. I don't remember really participating, just lurking, and then popping on there later on every once in a while hoping to see news of Sailor Moon coming back to TV.


EDIT: I also remember making an email there. But my mom got mad at me, because she thought "stranger danger" I wish I remembered it, lol. It's probably written down in my Britney Spears notebook full of urls somewhere....
