Possible Board Closure Discussion: Please Read and Respond!

Michelle and I have been discussing this, and we think that it may be time to close this board. Our post counts have been declining over the past few months 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.

This is not easy for either of us to have to do. It'd be great to be able to keep the board open until the show ends. But it's getting harder and harder to do lately. Please let us know if you want to keep the board open. We are willing to keep fighting for this board if you all are, too.

Thank you!

Say what?

I personally would love for the board to remain open - I can certainly try to post more

I am willing to stay as a moderator if posters want the board to stick around.

That's what we were/are hoping for, but most of the time it's just Michelle and I posting with a few posts from others here and there. If we can increase the traffic a bit, I would and I'm sure Michelle would be willing to also keep the board open longer.

I will make the effort to come by more often -- I just think the board needs to be around and hopefully we can increase where I've got some ideas that I'll list in the board guide ... I just don't think it should be the end, 8 seasons of TVD and 5 of TO plus Legacies coming

I'm a sucker and will give it a try -- plus it gives me my Alaric and hopefully they don't run my beloved

I started the below thread to see on if we can come up with some ideas to move the board forward

Re-"vamping" the board #1: Place we can discuss how to bring the board forward with the original series over, spin off ending, a new spin-off

I would love nothing more than to keep this board going, but like Ashley said we need commitment from more posters as it's mainly just been the two of us doing the majority of the posting. Real life for me is very busy at the moment, to the point where I'm almost feeling like I need to step down because I have no time, but I really don't want to do that because I love my boards so much! If we can get help on here so I don't feel like I'm leaving Ashley alone than I would feel better about keeping the board going.

Oh wow. You really did mean it, Sarah. You are not giving up this board without a fight. As I stated in the other thread, I won't be around tomorrow or Saturday maybe, but I should be back full time on Sunday!

Waiting for the series to end for TO is a far amount of time to see if renewed interest happens

Ash Yea no giving up without a fight from me

I really hope we can keep it open for the end of The Originals and beyond, especially with Legacies coming. We will discuss it as soon as Ashley gets back
