Herpy.nu will close down in January 2018 - will be replaced by something new and better.

Herpy has had a good 13 year run and will never be forgotten for those of us who experienced it. Sadly the site is today unappealing and is no longer fit for the audience of 2018, and years of smear campaigns have given us a reputation that has been hard to shake. We therefore made the choice to close the site and move on to a brighter future. While the forums will be archived as a memory of times of past greatness, new funds have been raised and new admins have been recruited to start working on a entire new community far away from Bad Dragon and any association with that company. The gallery will remain operational in the meantime. You can follow me on Twitter for further developments. We also have a Discord server which has become the heart of the community. If you wish to join it, send a PM to Valcyrie.

Herpy have always been my little lovechild since I joined over a decade ago. But he grew up, and as he has aged with dignity its time for his hatchling to take over. A fresh start for a new generation in a new era.

Kind regards,
Valcyrie

Latest post of the previous page:

Well age is just a number. And disscord is an on going discussion but I mean so are the forums in a way.... Except they’re not on going anymore! 😝 Everyone in this community seems to think they’re an outsider! There’s plenty who just comment every couple of months. Most members still greet them with the same disregard as the people who post daily. Some members who can’t cope with the numbers usually start their own smaller groups to keep the pace controlled.🤔

Let's see when it does close.

Well, after closing time, I'll probably periodically come back (since it'll be archived) and stare for awhile.

In the end there is no such thing as "perpetuum mobile". Meaning everything that has a begining, must also have an end.

Nothing REALLY ends, so long as enough remember it.
That being said, let's think about the end of this game. Yes, it's analyzation time again. When this is over, how many will remember their effort to post last? More than likely, only the winner, since most like to remember victory instead of defeat. Still, I like to think that those who did participate and care 'til the end, would think back and say, "I almost had that." Telling ourselves that we should've been the ones to have the last word, and hopefully laugh about it. The fact is that now, the whole thing is nerve wracking and shifty, what with the date of closure not being the first, and now the date being undetermined. More than likely, a Discord notification will be sent out, but that may still be a post-closure "press 'F' to pay respects" sort of sentiment. This isn't the type of thing that is taken too seriously, though. I'm sure this isn't taking mental precedence over the actual event that will end 'Last Man Posting', and concurrently, every other thread. Still, it's worth taking into consideration just how much effort some jackass will put into a two paragraph post just to have it superceded by a witty two line response.
Another thing to look at is those responses. The clever ways in which some have written "I'm winning". They're always really good. Speaking of "I'm winning... hey, whaddya know.

So if I'll run out of a toilet paper, I will still have it as long as I remember I had toilet paper...?

How will I use it, though?

See what I mean. Two sentence reply, just destroyed me with wit... that being said, yeah. Just remember to buy more. Or, maybe it's just that not ENOUGH people remember that one roll. Send all your comrades, compatriots, and aquaintances pictures and descriptions of the roll's personality, and maybe it'll never end.

I’m sorry I couldn’t think of anything else to say 😡. Despite appearances I don’t like walls of text they make my head hurt and they give me anxiety.

Nah.
Once you plow your way through the DirectX documentation, no wall of text will be a nuisance to you, Loki.

Maybe I’ll do that in hell... but for now I’ll just continue to hate all the spaces between the words that make themselves look like they are trying to get in front of the words like some attention seeking marshmallows. 😐 Seriously they look like that to me I probably need to get a colour overlay for my phone and computer!
