Hey guys!

Out of nostalgia, I stumbled my way back to this site.
Though I have not been using basilmarket for many months (or years), its easy to see how neglected the site has been compared to modern sites and technologies we commonly use.

Given the state of this website and having low expectations with basilmarket as is, how long will we be able to keep this thread alive? Rather than saying something arbitrary to keep this alive, share a piece of your life this week, talk about the things you remember about basilmarket, or make some discussion with other people in the thread c:

Remember, this is a community effort to keep this alive. For those who are still active on basilmarket, please drop by this thread here and there. If you are like me and happen to come back to basilmarket out of nostalgia, please drop by and leave a comment. Who knows if your efforts will make a difference, but for this thread, its a matter of life and death ><

P.S. Rip I can't change the polls but deal with it haha. -1 for basilmarket's lack of modern functionality

Cool to see that your avatar has the Basilmarket balloon.

One a more serious note,in case anyone was wondering (which I highly doubt), I've quit the game and thus have been less active on here, though I do tend to check the site at least once a day. Mainly school and other hobbies have been keeping me away, but I'm glad that some people who I remember from many years ago are still enjoying themselves and are active in the community.

@helpingly: Haha yeah I still got that balloon (In hindsight, it makes me wonder how he manage to set that up)

For the most part I also quit the game, tho I occasionally come back in-game for the reoccurring burning events.

@aznguy999: A long time ago Nexon used to be really interactive with community forums,and a lot of the more popular ones, Basilmarket included, got in game loot as an event. There are other ones out there (I believe there was one for Southperry too), but I was never active on any of the other sites so I never got them.

@xylyls: He actually added a mod a couple months ago, so he clearly hasn't given up all hope. However, I personally not have been in contact with him for a while because of how busy I have been with school and stuff. I could always get in touch with him if I need to, but there hasn't really been any need. He is still around though, he comments on threads on BZL from time to time.

+2 still here lads. although it's mostly just because i've been getting back into maplestory recently (and that's only because i'm at a pretty bad place in my life rn lol). i did a lot of growing up and made a lot of good memories on this website, sad as that may sound, so that's why i keep coming back i guess. still i don't necessarily have any desire for things to go back to "the way they used to be"; the internet in its current state is a very different beast compared to what it was a few years ago, and i'd be loath to see this site descend into the same kind of hate-filled cesspool as reddit/*chan/etc.
i'm deeply thankful for the memories, and i begrudgingly accept its current state as a natural consequence of the passage of time. coming here kind of feels like i'm spending time with an elderly relative who's close to dying, in the sense that i want to do all i can to help them pass on with as much dignity and pride as possible
