      Hi all, I paid the server bill for the month so the site can be archived, sorry for the mess, didn't realize there'd be such an uproar. The site's in read-only mode. Happy archiving. Here's a link to a user-made PULL discord server: https://discord.gg/vZFEm75

    PULL Is Closing.
    Hello everyone,
    PULL has served a good purpose for many years--it's been a safe place where people could express themselves. However, I'm afraid that there are some deep issues with its culture that I can't fix. 
    I've been trying to find a new administrator for a long time, it hasn't worked out. I've given splinter sites time and support to form but they haven't worked out.
    I've decided closing PULL is the best option. I'm going to retain the domain because I truly believe the site should not be remade. The site should be up tomorrow and go down on Wednesday morning.
    Thank you for everything. Serving this community has had its ups and downs, but I'll always be proud of what we made together.

    Don't post the family members of snowflakes. This is against the rules. Thanks for reporting.

    This round of moderator applications has been closed, we've sent out invitations and rejection letters to all who've applied. I hope to conclude interviews and announce all new staff additions by July 8th.

    Refrain from contacting snowflakes, it is against site rules.

    I've always been pretty against adding ads to the site just because they're clunky and ugly and I'd sacrifice the cost to myself for the increased user experience, honestly.

    I'm adding another screenshot just for full context,

    I've been running the site for nearly four years. Please, let's not go on a holy crusade against me, I've put a lot of work in.
    I'm sorry, Pusheen, for glazing over your family member, as we just talked about in DMs. I completely missed it and when I came back with "blugh" I just came back to talk after you made a post talking about me on PULL. That'd never be an appropriate response to what you said. However, I don't think that specific drama is really appropriate here, this didn't need to become a public matter over a private issue. 
    Around something like September? October? I dropped the ball for a few months and wasn't around at all, Pusheen basically fielded everything. I'm really sorry that caused trouble, I should have looked for more mods, been more communicative, literally anything, there's not much excuse, I was emotionally exhausted. Pusheen made a post bashing me, I talked to her about it and thought we talked through everything.
    She gathered a group of some users to develop a new site, I said I'd be fine with that and would give them whatever info they needed.
    I never asked for free work or rushed anyone, I was approached with their plans of making their own offshoot and I was fine with that, I only asked for sporadic updates so I'd know for how much longer I'd be paying the exorbitant hosting bill or if I'd have to start looking for new staff for my forum in the meantime. I offered all the help I could think of, including the "official" domain so they could get all of our traffic directed to their new site and make the most of it, while leaving them alone about any decisions and choices because I knew that wasn't my place.
    I think there was some understandable, directed vitriol against me in that group, so I think everything I've said to any of those team members has been nitpicked by all of them. My mod who helps with a lot of tech work, Rhea, offered to set up the entire forum for them, ready to launch, with hosting and tech support and hand it over for them to do with as they please, they turned that down. 
    Basically, I waited for some time, they kept working on the site. I haven't stifled any of their progress and offered to give them whatever they wanted, I've pretty much only waited. I don't think this came off as rushing anyone or asking for free work. No one ever really approached me directly about things, everything has been weird and through the grapevine.

    Unlocking the thread, sorry, Shadow's a new mod & we just talked over this, I have no intention of locking down discussion on this forum. 
    However, this is not really the place to bicker about AA. Respectful discussion is okay. Please report racism. 
    Citing rule 8 here: 
    Except for the off-topic discussion boards, do not bring up general controversial issues in threads.
    Don’t talk about politics, religion, race, or social issues except in the off-topic boards. These just derail threads.
     
    Please stay on topic.

    I was sent personal identifying documents belonging to Julia's father. Kojack can weigh in if he'd like on what type of documentation he sent me, I don't want to go back on the trust of sources who identify themselves to me. I don't think Julia would have access to these.

    I've received documentation from Kojak that appears to confirm his identity as Julia's father.
