Well I've come here hoping this can be a new haven for us. RIP JPL, it's been like a home online for so long.

Will always remember JPL, always. I stayed there for more than 1 year, and had a great time. That was my escape room from reallity, from my life. I've made so many friends on JPL, I hope most of them come here too, so we can still continue to chat about the JP Universe together. It's been great.

Jurassic Park Legacy will always live on in our hearts. We are all now the legacy of Jurassic Park Legacy.

Jurassic Park Legacy is a site I devoted a part of my life to. Not as much as Tyrannosaur did, but a devotion just the same. I became so involved, it affected my grades. I knew I had to step away a bit at that point. Now? Now I look back and see so much I enjoyed about the site... and i have no regrets. I loved going to comic con to promote the site. I loved fighting for what I believed in, I loved discussing every even miniscule plot point about the franchise... I loved it all. And I will be sad to see it go.

This will be all of us when we start going through the JPL archives when we have them all up.

As another archival purpose I have screencapped and complied the front page of the JPL message boards into one mega pic. It's really shifted at the very bottom with the usernames but they are still readable.
Pic (WARNING: Large image):
"A creature of the future, built with pieces of the past!" "This is the most dangerous creature that ever walked the Earth!" "That thing cannot leave this building."

I wasn't a member as long as most people. Just a year and roughly 5 months or so. But I did like the site. I was hesitant to join since I was a lurker. Mainly because I wanted to see what people felt about the JW. Perhaps joining was an unconscious sign of being a born again Jurassic Park fan. I feel really bad for all the 'old timers'.
It sucks that it died, but at least we have the memories, this site, and each other. As long as we have those, then JPL will never die in our hearts.
Hopefully, this song-Hold Onto The Nights by Richard Marx-matches what I said above.

I'll be seeing her off tonight for sure.
I'll always miss JPL. But the people and dedication are what made it special. I realize that our site is tiny now. But JPL existed from 2003-2016. It did not become great overnight. I believe that we will one day have another site just as big in time. Especially with two more films on the way!
