Fantastic news. (at least for me)
I didn't think this day would come, it seems our forum has reached the attention of Dwayne McDuffie's wife: Charlotte (Fullerton) McDuffie
She has personally sent me this private message:



Hi.

I just wanted to personally thank whoever set up this temporary home for the community of fans from dwaynemcduffie.com to be able to continue gathering together somewhere online until we can finish getting my husband's site redesigned and up and running in its new form.

I know it will take some getting used to, because change can be difficult and, yes, the site is going to be different--as everything without Dwayne in the world has been and will be forever now :'( --but dwaynemcduffie.com will ALWAYS be DWAYNE'S site, and its new form will include several features that Dwayne himself had been wanting to implement...

Thank you again for keeping the dwaynemcduffie.com community together here... and a special thank you to all of the posters on this site who ever interacted thoughtfully and respectfully with my husband in his forums. As busy as he was, Dwayne devoted an inordinate amount of his time to answering your questions there--between meetings, on airplanes, even at the breakfast table--he so greatly appreciated your enthusiasm and support of his work. So do I.

On a personal note: Thank you all for keeping him alive in your memories...

Sincerely,

-Charlotte (Fullerton) McDuffie
(aka Dwayne's "McSpouse")

Hopefully she doesn't mind me posting this message here. I'll keep this short because I'm not too good with words. I just want to say that my heart stopped for a while while I was reading this, it made my day, no, my month. I never needed any thanks in the first place, I'm doing all of this because I love Dwayne's work, Ben 10 and more importantly: the community he created. I couldn't have possibly let it die, his forum was like a home to me, I always felt good on it in a way you don't normally do because of a site/forum. In short, I'm doing my best to thanks Dwayne McDuffie for all he has done and keep his memory alive. I'm looking forward to Dwayne's new forum and I'm sure many people here do as well!  Very Happy

I was so shocked and very happy to see this. Not good with words either but I'm so happy to be part of a community like this and being friends with all of you guys. I have had a lot of memories on the older site and this forum. I also really respect Ben 10, Justice League and many of Dwayne's work. He was truly a good man.

Basically this forum also became like a home to me too. It's the first site I would check and I always get different emotions when posting with the community: a feeling I usually only feel in real life. We know each other online mostly but I consider all of us friends. I'm really looking forward to the new forum.
Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

This made me look back and remember how fun the last couple of years have been being a participant in this forum, and how nice it was in the beginning.....

Ben 10: Alien Force just started, Dwayne was answering a lot of questions with interesting retorts which seemed to hint at the new plots to come, we had all just started getting to know each other.....

I miss that a lot. I miss Dwayne.

Hopefully we can make the new forum similar to how it was before.

Yeah...I miss that a lot too...I just realized how much we've really matured since those times. It's still fun around here but it's a really different brand of fun nowadays.

And does anyone have any news about the new forum??

Well, this message is all the news we got.
And we are not 10 anymore, of course things changed. Hopefully someone like Z-man or whatever his name was from back in the day will come and random things up.

Of course things changed. But it's really interesting looking back at the past from now.

It was Zuperman, I think. Not sure. Oh no...what if he's matured too?

Yes, Zuperman. My memory is leaving me. Laughing
Everyone matures but I'm guessing he is still more or less the same.

I think you can send messages to the admin without having an account. But I have no idea how exactly she did it. Laughing
