Board Closure
 
We (CohenGal and the_strawberry_girl) have been discussing this, and we are concerned about the longevity of this board. We’d like to hear peoples’ thoughts on the possibility of closing this board. Our post counts are regularly low and very close to the minimum, and we have very few regular posters. As you know, Fan Forum requires that we average at least 12 posts per day, with lower numbers than that leading to warnings and then possible closure of the board. We would prefer to go out under our own terms rather than be forced to close due to low post counts.

Please let us know what you think. We'd be glad to hear any suggestions or advice to renew interest here. Remember that to keep the board going, we need the commitment of a few regular, dedicated posters. As much as we love this board, please don't just post to "save" the board and then disappear again, because we'll be in the same position that we're in now if you do.

The Gilmore Girls board has a LG thread where people can share news and chat about Lauren, so that’s always a place for people to go. We do know this board has been important to a lot of people in the past, and this isn’t a decision we want to take lightly. We really do want to hear your thoughts and suggestions, and this should be a process that involves more than just the two of us, so please chime in.

Thanks.

I joined this board in 2008, and I`ve a lot of fun here! It`s been sad to watch this place get less active the last few years. Guess things in real life made people too busy..



I have to admit that my motivation to post here has dropped dramacitly, manily because of the lack of Lauren news. We`re all waiting for her to make a comeback on tv / release a new book. When that day comes I`m not sure that news will bring people back here.. To me it seems like twitter and other social media platfroms have taken over the role this forum used to have.

I think the best solution is to close, because sadly I don`t see that things will change around here anytime soon.

Thanks for the feedback Ragga. :)

I don’t want this board to close, but I understand why it may be necessary. I haven’t been active here for a couple of years; life gets in the way.

Knowing that the GG thread is still available is comforting.

Do what needs to be done. I support you.

Thanks to you both for your input and support. :)

This post was up for a week, and we only got two responses (both of which were sad but supportive of the decision to close), so we'll be closing this board at the end of the month (on July 28th). The Gilmore Girls board will still be a place for people to discuss Lauren. I have met some amazing people through this board and have been lucky enough to meet many of you in person, and I'm grateful that we had this place to connect and build friendships. I'll miss this place. Thanks to everyone who helped make it what it was. :group_hug:

Thanks for posting Claire.

I have met a couple of people from here in real life, and I've appreciated getting to know lots of other people through here as well.

Thanks to all, and we'll see you over on the GG board if/when Lauren has news to share!

Oh no, I am so sad to read this. Even though I understand the reasoning behind it, it is sad to think this board will not be open. It was a big part of my life, and I met people through it and made friends. I'm sorry I haven't been as active as I could have. Life gets in the way.

So sad to hear this. I am really going to miss it here, I have really enjoyed meeting everyone and reading about all things Lauren Graham related all these years. I wish that she had things happening that we can discuss to keep this going but there isn't anything we can do. Hope to see some more of you at the Gilmore girls board. Thank you to everyone who have been posting here, it has been a lot of fun.

Thanks Val and Sarah. :)

Sorry to hear about the board, but it's also understandable. No new projects makes it difficult to keep converaations flowing. At least there are other places to talk about Lauren and her projects.

I just want to come in and say that this board was the reason I joined in the first place. Lauren and Gilmore Girls. That was forever ago and of course paths change, life gets busy, and so on. But this was always a happy place.

Thank you for all you've done. :love: Lauren surely knew about her CIP on here. :love:

Yes glad we will have another place to go. :)
