Title: LovelyLivTyler.com - The End
Post by: cmr on October 01, 2020, 10:24:12 PM
After a lot of thought, I've decided to close LovelyLivTyler.com website on Dec. 1st 2020.

In most of it's 20 years, llt.com was the place for Liv's news/photos/articles/discussions, you name it.
I had the honor to run this site from the beginning. In the last few years I was the only remain from the original group who created this site. and I think it is time to go.

I'm still a big fan of Liv, and will forever follow her career.
But fan sites are no longer a thing. Social media took over. World is moving forward, like it or not - that's life.

Many thanks to all the people who worked so hard on this web site (and there are so many),
Thanks to to the loyal fans who visit this site on a regular basis.
Thanks to the awesome community of llt forum  :lol:

And thanks to Liv - who inspired us to create something special.

llt may still be around on social media.

  :( Sad but at peace

This site and you guys were a big part of my twenties with all ups and downs. I'm really sad to see it go, but fully understand why. Some great memories and happy to have met all of you.  :wub:

Even if I wasn't here from the beginning I feel sad about it, especially for the amazing LLT gallery  :wub: end of an area.

But I fully understand your decision - you did such a great job for years cmr, you should be proud of yourself like all of you guys.

Oh no! This is so sad! But I also understand. I know how much work and time takes to keep a website up.
Just as mata, this site was part of my 20s (and Im almost 40 now!!). I definetly still come to see the latest on Liv's career. And to refer to anything regarding Liv! Where else are we going to find such a complete archive on Liv?.

I do hope you keep the Instagram account. Definetly easier to mantain :)

All the best!

I remember how active this forum was with Liv working so much and being on every event.
I remember to check this forum every morning and usually there were tons of pics posted by Mata, Sanne, Rianon...

Mata even helped me when I had the Steven Tyler website!!  :wub:

We were here when Liv got married. When Liv got her first baby. When she divorced :( Every year Liv was on the main list for the MET gala. We were here when she became the face of Givenchy. Every campaign she did. When Liv signed autographs on Paris (2011) for Givenchy and LLT.com sent a 'team' for a special report. Every year we were looking forward to see the Halloween costume Liv would wear. All the photoshoots, all the magazines... And of course, the birthday special every year CMR and everyone have created to Liv! so many memories  :P

Thank you CMR, this has been a really great site! now is easier to get news, but you guys always managed to get the latest on Liv without the sources are nowdays.  :wub:

Oh 2020! What else you want to take away from me?

This is my favorite website in the world, i check this site almost everyday and love it since i finded it on 2001.

I become a fan of Liv at very young age (i was 12 years old!) and when i find this site, omg was so, so amazing for me. I meet some good friends in the old chat, and i'm truly fell in love with Liv along the thousands of pics i have watched. (And still i have not seen them all!  :mellow:)

I just can say... THANK YOU! It's very sad to read about this site coming to an end, but i understand it requires a tons of work. THANK YOU for all the amazing contents and news you give us everyday. I wish websites could keep forever. Some of them, like this, deserve to stay forever.

(There's any way to download the gallery and other contents like articles or video clips?)  I really don't know what i'm gonna do if i can't come and immerse myself on the gallery :(

This is such sad news but I completely understand.

I would just like to say thank you for all the amazing memories & friendships.  :wub:

Although I have lost contact with most I have recently reconnected with Angel & I’m thankful for that.

Would love to hear from others & where they are in their life before this all disappears.

How’s life treating you CMR?

Post by: cmr on October 28, 2020, 08:16:27 AM
Tiff!!! an old-timer like me  :blush:
How are you doing those days?

Life is treating me well. I am very sad to close llt.com, it became part of my life.
But ... I people now only on social media, and I don't want llt.com to be so empty. it is not appropriate for such site.

I think we may leave llt on Instagram, there some of us will be able to keep in touch.
lovelylivtyler@gmail.com mail will remain active.

I'll also make the gallery (and the whole site) downloadable - maybe someone will want to do something with it.

What reminds me that llt.com started at free-hosting companies like GeoCities, only in Nov. 27 2001 we became independed:
Title: Re: LovelyLivTyler.com - The End
Post by: Rianon on October 28, 2020, 09:16:01 PM
Well, the main reason why is so empty here, is that Liv basically retired from acting. She's not doing movies, so there is no interviews, no photoshoots, no red carpets. And without all that there is not much for us to do here  :(.
Searching for Liv's pics was my favourite stress relievers at uni. But since she moved to UK, we don't even have candid photos of her. I'm sure that Liv is happier without constant paparazzi hiding outside her house, but I have to say that I loved those NY street candids. I admired her casual NY style. I fell in love in one of her looks so much that I even bought a cream trench coat (every other coat or jacket that I have is black :P ).
I understnad the decision why you want to close LLT, but I'm sure that in the future I will be devastated when I will find new pic of Liv and there will bo no one to share this finding with  :(.


Oh and here is my fav NY look of Liv

This news hits me right in the guts! Liv and this site have been SUCH an important part of my life! I can not thank everyone at LLT enough! This community means a huge deal to me, I'll be so sad to see it gone.

I'd also like to put my vote in for archiving all the content here. 20 years of history is a huge deal to lose. While I'm not a tech wizard, if there any way I could help such a project please just let me know!

Hi JD, there will be some archiving, and stuff for download.

It's a long time ago that i posted something here! I had to think very hard to remember my password.
But i wanted to thank you for all these years. I still checked the site regularly to see if there was news. I used to try to get all the magazines Liv was in. That took some effort in the Netherlands! But it was a fun time. I understand the decision, but i'm sad the site is closing. I'm gonna check if there are pics i really want to have  :D.

OMG how i missed that? (i think i can blame my poor english for that)  :lol:  Liv actually give an interview to llt site in 2003?    :wub: :wub: :wub:

That's sounds incredibly hard to get, specially at 2003 when she was so bussy and so requested by the whole world!

This is evidence of how big and special this site is!  :( :(

Sad news cmr but I also completely understand. You and the rest of the team have put in amazing work over the years. I have made lifelong friends here, and some that I haven't spoken to in years but will always be in my heart. This place was a home for so many of us for so many years. Big love to all :heart1:

Thank you very much!

Thanks for everything, and for this last gift (the gallery). Your amazing work was always gratefuly received, even if we not talked about that before. I remember some time the site had a small banner asking for help via paypal, and i've always wished about donating something, but i never could. I'm sorry for that. The best thing i were able to do was to share some scans of the magazines i finded in Mexico :( 

I wish the best to the whole team of LLT!
