arrivederci

Well, the time has finally come. The time to call it quits. I want to thank everyone who has pressed a fingerprint into this site since `05. And for those who constantly visit hoping to see an update or news of some sort. Just know I tried my hardest to make this site something bigger and better than what it became. It’s unfortunate to end on such a low note, but if you see from the homepage I haven’t posted anything legit in months really. I tried to bridge the band and fans closer together, but I’m not sure it worked. I’m super proud of what I’ve accomplished with the site, but at the same time I can’t help but think its been a big waste of time and money.

I have to thank Fazzi and Mark for being so generous and caring enough to help out when they could.

The site will remain up until Nov. so grab all the photos and media you want while its available.

thanks again.

    Aw shit man, I loved this site. God. But I just want to say thanks for keeping it up for this long. I got a lot of info about the band that I wouldn’t have gotten from anywhere else. It made us all feel like we were part of the group. This site is one of the things that separated Taking Back Sunday from all the other bands out there. But anyways, thank you so very very very much. I’m going to miss this place like hell.

    agreed with everyone else. I visit this site everyday and love it. :(

    I really wish you’d reconsider.

    you shall be missed.

    i have a pretty rare TBS live cd from 2002. send me an address and I would be more than happy to ship it to you.

    and I wish you the absolute best in everything that you do.

    The highlight of every day was to jump on this TBSU and creep about checking updates and stuff. Thanks for everything you’ve put in to make this site possible. I’m going to miss it.

    Don’t tell me your doing this because you’re salty about Rubano and Fazzi being replaced by Cooper and Nolan (who are clearly improving the band.)

    I only ask because you only thank the two of them when I know Adam has been very supportive, appreciative of your site.

    grendel20 – just curious what show is it?

    hrmm- nope has nothing to do with roobs/fazzi. im more than happy the old line up is back. i just thanked fazzi because he has been good to me and helped me out with info to post on the site. same with mark and his phone calls/interview. i know adam appreciates the site, but hes never personally helped me out like faz/mark did. althought adam did post on the forums once which was pretty amazing.

    thanks everyone. didnt realize so many people held the site to their chest. who knows what the future may hold though…

    thats good to hear. sorry, i misread you thanked mark and fazzi. this site is loved by many, yes. theres nowhere else to go on the net thats strictly tbs talk.

    my earlier posts were harsh, just a little emotional about TBSUnion coming to an end.

    Nooo!!! I’ve been visiting this site for years. I got so much out of it. It really sucks you are ending it. If there is anyway we can help you to keep it up lets us know. Maybe you do a donation charity and try to keep it up. Anything : (

    Can’t believe I JUST found out about this… This is so depressing. I never really checked the homepage, that’s why I didn’t know till now. I hope there’s an easier and less expensive way to keep this site up. But if there isn’t, just know, like everyone else has said, this site meant a whole lot to us and has reached out across the world. It was my main place for keeping up to date with the band and you really did a great job at making it what it was and having it up for so long. I’ll never forget that.

    this site was like my place of worship for a full year. i never would’ve gotten as much information on the band if tbsunion hadn’t been around. thanks so much for everything!!
