    Thumbs up Umm, Jeremy?

    Hey, just wondering if that BIG NEWS that you were promising ever broke? Is there any way we could get any more hints, if it hasn't?

    Delayed. If I remember correctly, no announcement until at least July 17th.

    *Edit* - My memory serves me right.

    No, it has not broken- not until at least the 17th, likely later. No, you cannot get more hints. Angie already asked people to stop giving out hints, because this is Jeremy's news to give. Not directed at you, bkurt, but what's so hard about waiting for this? I don't understand why people can't just chill out and know that it will be announced when the announcement is good and ready.

    Wouldn't have been a problem if a thread wasn't started a month ago that was the equivalent of saying "I know something you don't know, but I can't tell you."

    You also have to realize there are setbacks that you cant control.

    There is news, but all the planets have to align before anything can be said!

    I have no doubt there is news. I just disagree with the fact that an "announcement" was made that there would soon be an announcement.

    I agree, ornry, that we should all have a little patience here. The thing is, it's the deadly-slow summer months, and we're all just dying for something to talk about here on CF. Jeremy's impending "big announcement," therefore, is one of the few things to talk about. I think most people are just having fun with it, turning it into our own little CF "in-joke."

    And mwitt, I think you're right, too. Everyone got worked up over the promise of exciting news from Jeremy, and we're all getting a little impatient waiting around to find out what it is. It probably would have been better if Jeremy had just waited to announce it when all the ducks were in a row. But I'm sure Jeremy was looking to stimulate interest in Cyclone Fanatic, and his "announcement that there is going to be a big announcement" has certainly done that. So, from that standpoint, I can't blame him. I just hope the announcement lives up to the hype.

    Re: Umm, Jeremy?

    I want to know what it is as much as the next person. But I realize it's Jeremy's news to share when and how he wants to share it. There is no doubt in my mind that he did not intend to keep us waiting as long as it is taking. He's going to tell us as soon as he can. It seems as though he's really excited to share the news... and from what I can tell, the news is something special because he can share it with us. I doubt it would mean as much to him as it does if it weren't something he was going to share with this community he's so proud to be a big part of.

    I'm just thankful that he keeps this site going, because I know it costs him money out of pocket... and he could pull the plug on the whole thing with the click of a button if he wanted to.

    And I'm not trying to side against you guys because I know how you feel... I'm just trying to point out that we should give him a break because it's not his intentions for anyone to feel like their left out of the loop on whatever it is.

    Re: Umm, Jeremy?

    For the posters that think every mod knows what the announcement is, I do not. I am just in the dark as the rest of you. Let's be patient and let the cards fall.

    Neaner neaner neaner, I know something that you don't know......





    Let's all give Jeremy some slack, had the stars aligned as expected then he would have made the announcement by now. He said sometime after the 17th, so it won't be long now.

    Re: Umm, Jeremy?

    I understand there are setbacks and I'm perfectly happy to wait out the news.

    But you have to see where people are coming from when its stated there is a big announcement and nothing happens for a month. Especially after other times where there was other news that didn't come out for like a year.

    People will wait (they have no other choice) but you can also understand their position (at least I can).
