BreatheHeavy Community's 1 Year Anniversary (also my 1 Year being an Exhaler) ! What are your memories from BHC? 💛💜


Recommended Posts

Hi Exhale! :barbie_hair_flip_hairflip_weave_proud_cocky:

It's been so long since I last created a thread. I just came back from my hiatus less than a month ago. And no, it's not cause I was exhausted after running a show on Exhale for 31 days straight. :blol_britney_2011_ff_femme_fatale_laugh_lol_haha_hehe_lmao:

This topic is something close to me. It's very controversial but an important transition in BreatheHeavy / Exhale history.

This month marks the one year anniversary of the now defunct BreatheHeavy Community a.k.a. Exhale 2.0. It opened on October 7, 2019.

Last year, Jordan wanted all Exhalers from here to move to BHC cause it's the "new and improved" home of Britney stans and he made it a Pop Culture forum where all fandoms are welcome.

Today is also the day I registered on BHC. October 16, 2019. I know, cause I checked my e-mail. So today is the 1 year anniversary of my Exhale career. :comingthru_britney_circus_2008_boobs_chest_smile_walking_hat_happy:

I've never been to Exhale despite having an account here dating back to 2012. So I had no idea how it is to be an Exhaler or what are the charms of this forum. BHC was my first taste of a Britney forum.

BHC was a small community because not everyone on Exhale migrated there. We were mostly new users there. I know not a lot of the old and legacy Exhalers wanted to move there because it's VERY different from this forum. And if you've been a member of Exhale for years, I get that you might not want to leave your Platinum and Diamond accounts to start a new life on a new forum.

First of all, it's WHITE. I know not everyone liked it cause even on BHC, some people were complaining that it was too bright. My eyes were ok with it tho cause like I said, i've never been on Exhale so I didn't have an issue with it.

We also didn't have emotes on BHC and there were no reactions. When you make replies, it's like Facebook / Instagram where you can reply to a comment and there's like a separate column or thread.

But we did have clubs there. And I was a member of 16 clubs on BHC. Including the secret Britney Spears BLACKOUT club.

It's very different from THIS Exhale. It's not as active as this Exhale but BHC had it's charm, for sure. I know if only Jordan was able to sort some of the issues on BHC like the loading time, and incorporated the Exhale experience like emotes and reactions, it would be thriving.

I made some friends on BHC too and I'm friends with them too outside Exhale. Hi @VCTR ! 💛💜

I also got to see and interact with some of the now Exhale staff, like @Urbanney, @Isla !

I recognize a lot of Exhalers who were on BHC and I'd just like to say HELLO! 💛💜

I wish Tom and Dzemil were here too cause they were also my friends and they're also nice and sweet to me. :makeitrain_britney_blush_headphones_omg_wow_happy:

I remember there was a time when BHC went down and I DM-ed Jordan on Instagram that BHC wasn't working and we spent like, I don't know, 3 hours trying to fix it and I was his tester. It was scary. :omggg_shocked_hand_old_lady_woman_surprised:

We even had a Britney Spears birthday event tournament-ish and I won 2nd place. #whenwillyourfaves :mattafact_alligator_telling_talking_chatting_preaching_green:

So in late January 2020, Jordan decided to close BHC and there was an announcement that we all had to move here, to Exhale. And I remember being so scared like omg I don't want to leave my account. But I got to speak to Jordan and he encouraged me to try Exhale. So on February 5, 2020 I finally made the move and become an official Exhaler. 17 days later I became your first Moderator. TEEHEE :imcute_britney_ftr_for_the_record_hat_paris_french_smile_grin_happy:

I just want to say I LOVE BreatheHeavy Community and I will always be proud to call it my home. It's where I came from and i'm very proud that I got to start my Exhale career on a small but charming forum like BHC. :crying1_britney_sobbing_tears_2006_sad:

 

So for some of you who were here during the latter part of 2019, who heard of BHC and the planned "migration", did you migrate to BHC? Do you have any memories from this very divisive time on Exhale? What were your thoughts?

Hopefully, by sharing and unloading all of those feelings on this thread, Jordan and the Exhale staff can learn from this (and I believe Jordan has already), move on, and put to rest that very awkward transition in Exhale history.

Happy 1 year anniversary and what an IMPACT you've had on this forum! You are adored by soooo many! :hugs_madonna_britney_ftr_2008_circus_hugging_friends_support:

I absolutely LOVE your humour, you're hilarious! Such a sweet person and an amazing mod! :sendinglove_kissing_heart_love_blowing:

In regards to BHC, I really wasn't a fan and made it really clear that I didn't like it - sorry Jordan :makeup_kylie_jenner_makeup_brush_lol_laugh_haha_hehe_lmao:  I think I just have such an attachment to this exhale I hated the idea of going elsewhere to essentially start a fresh, but i'm SO happy to be back here, the home of Britney and Exhale! :mcry_mariah_carey_proud_beaming: What I am glad about the BHC era is that it brought you! :wink_britney_everytime_white:

I tried it, and yeah, it wasn't easy to adjust :yesokay_britney_blush_blink: Actually, was never able to adapt to it.

I think the idea was great, but the change from forum to Facebook like UI, was a huge downside. 

 

One of the main reasons I wanted to join Exhale back in the day, was to use the emotes, and not having them was like, nope. The white wasn't much of a problem, I mean, you could get used to it, but also not being to edit your posts, or more like, give them the formatting like we do in here, was also very frustrating. You could like, attach pictures, but not order them in your post, everything was very minimalistic, but as I said, the idea was good, having your profile, having these clubs or sections, especially to those non-Britney fans that didn't feel welcome in the old Exhale. 

But it was really sad to me, who I spent so many time on this forum, especially after the whole FreeBritney that we lived that year. 2019 was wild, since the very beginning we had all these news coming after the other, from the Cancellation, her participation on that movie, the green pee, the leak of the original Make Me..., the Me Time : ) the voicemail, Lynne liking comments, the daily TMZ and The Blast articles, the Instagram posts, her attending the hearing in May, the restraining order against Jamie, it was crazy. And all of a sudden, all of that was gone, because people didn't want to migrate to the Community, Exhale was closed for new threads, the FreeBritney movement started to cool down, and not just that, but my daily dose of Britney threads as well, and I did feel the effect of that emptiness, that void, I was like, well, this is it, now I'll have no choice but to be productive at work because now I won't have a distraction without Exhale.

It was a nice experiment, but I think nothing beats the good old Exhale, and I hope it's here to stay for the rest of our days :bop_beyonce_dancing_yes_Yas_cheer_party_glasses:

Congratulations, Luv! When people (myself included) say that Exhale just wouldn't be the same without you, they mean it. Well, it literally wasn't the same during your little hiatus, so there's your proof. We've had our ups and downs (or, I guess, one down), but that's part of the journey, and I look forward to seeing this little friendship blossom even more. Can't wait to share my excitement with you when TWICE release their new album. Just 10 more days, Luv.

I do remember seeing you on BHC but I wonder why I never interacted with you then. Wait, you were still PokemonSpears on BHC, right?
