I started writing this on an overcast Saturday afternoon in a public library – I guess have some things I feel that I need to get off my chest in a certain way, and believe this outlet is best.
Nearly a week later and the feeling is the same - it has been very disappointing, mainly as it pertains to Photobucket. Using it has been very convenient for the last few years, but of late it has disappointed me as somehow I had exceeded bandwidth – not sure how. Either way, now I can’t access my photos properly without having to fork out $400 (!) a year.
Unfortunately this means that I have a massively huge uphill battle in using Imgur to replace the photos of the many characters I’ve created for SUMMIT PRO, spread throughout the different sub-promotions. I simply don’t have the time to do so. Coupled with a feeling of dissonance towards what I’ve created, I feel there is a chance for a fresh start, insofar as tastes and attitudes to wrestling as a whole are changing as time goes on.
As I have a creation that is more than just text, I always want to include pictures where possible. I can’t do that with Photobucket down. Thankfully I have Imgur, but it is still quite a task and I have lost motivation to replace everything in my SUMMIT PRO-related threads. I’ve tried some different things, but largely nothing has ‘stuck’ or ‘taken’. This includes the short-lived Sims attempt, responses to no acknowledgement and more WWE participation in SUMMIT PRO.
To this end, I feel as if I have gone as far as I could with SUMMIT PRO in the previous 3 years, and perhaps it’s time to flesh something else out that isn’t so niche or exclusive. I realise what this forum is for, the types of members that frequent here, and can see moreover that the age we live in and how we watch wrestling changes all the time.
It’s part and parcel of writing as well, as I want to be more prolific but am constantly time-poor as it pertains to my job and other responsibilities. Writing, however, is what I want to do. I should be able to make time, but it’s excruciatingly difficult at times. I guess I would say at this stage that SUMMIT PRO would be on an indefinite hiatus, as I wish to come up with a new vision (that will most likely be a ‘sequel’ of sorts to SUMMIT PRO’s universe, who knows)
To those who actually took the time to visit the threads and commented positively here and there, I thank you very much. I appreciate it more than you know.

Summer's almost over around here, but my mind is racing and I feel like I want to start up again. Don't unlock any threads or anything, but looking around here and seeing a barren wasteland of what used to be really is motivating me.
I hope I can get some stuff up and revive this place at least a little.
I was thinking about converting my previous Pic Fed into a Text based Only show for awhile at least until around March when I will be fully settled in my new house. Anyways I look forward to doing shows here and hopefully it will become a little more active on this side.
p.s if anyone wants to see my first 2 shows they're in the pic fed boards.

Happy New Year guys!
Corey Taylor - AWF brings up a good point - would you prefer to post on the Pic Fed Board instead of here? It does seem as if you’re putting in more effort with the addition of pics, so it makes sense that he would suggest that.
Please let me know if that’s something you’d prefer instead and I’ll make it happen.
