Board Closure Discussion: Please read and respond

Recently, it has come to our attention that this board has seen a steady decline. It's been a happening for awhile now. We've lost all of our regular posters. It's mostly just the mods talking to each other, and that's not what makes for a good board.

While we appreciate anybody who is involved with this board in any capacity, there's simply not enough activity to justify keeping the board on FF.

That being said, we'd love to hear any thoughts from the posters here regarding closing the board.

So far, looks like nobody does.

I'm sad about this too. It's part of the reason I'm not fully caught up on 30 Rock.

Yes, Thanks.

And so far it looks like this is probably the right thing to do.

So sorry to see you guys have to do this! But it sounds like it's for the best I know it's hard for boards that aren't "teen" orientated

Yeah, that was a problem from the beginning. It just got worse over time.

So I guess it's a done deal. This board will be closed on Sunday.

I kind of understand where you're coming from! The Arrested Development board here struggles as well .. although we have picked up a couple new posters in the past month which has helped out!

I'm very sorry the board had to be closed!

Ain't that the truth.


Thanks for the support. It's a hard thing to do.

It can be.

I don't watch the show, but I'm always sad to see boards close. I know it's really hard for mods to broach the topic of whether it's time the subject might be better served at the general Television board.

Thanks Pia & Carolyn for the time you've devoted to the board.

Thanks Chris.

We had our ups and downs. But I just don't think we can recover from this downturn.
