Possible Board Closure Discussion: Please Read and Respond!

I have been thinking 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.

Alright time for my little personal bit and I know we went though this back in October 2017 with my deciding to stay on. It does pain me to do this with how my for Prison Break is high. The board sadly has became a burden and I have made the decision to step down ASAP. I feel that it is time for me to move on to focus on my current boards and move on to a different board that I have been connected to for almost a year.

This thread is for you to discuss on the future of the board. I will be requesting that a moderator position[s] go up in order to allow any of the current posters to have the chance to submit to become moderator of the board. The show is incredible and I do know that there is rumor of a 6th season but I feel that it is time to step down to allow another or others to take the board forward.

Again I do this with a heavy heart but I must do what is best for myself

I suppose it's time

No sense in sticking around if it's going to die a slow death.

I totally understand.

Given we don't have many posters, even when the last season was airing. And I haven;'t been around as much as I used to; maybe it is time.

There isn't anything we can't discuss on the TV board when the new season does come, probably next year. But It does seem to be fading more and more.

I know we have the wentworth board, the Tv board and the couples board byt I preferred this one because each character and season has their own thread.

I had a personal bit typed out but there are a lot of things in life I couldn't care less about it

It was nice each character and season having their own threads but its came time for me to move on -- the board isn't closed yet, it does have a moderator opening if anybody wants to take over and try to move the board on

Yeah, I don't see that happening since apart from us, there is really no others.

And I don't have as much time to do it this time around.

So sorry you’ve come to this decision, Sarah, but totally understandable.

I hope someone will be able to step up and mod the board, otherwise, closing it might be best for the board.

Best for the board and best by me does make me sad due to how much I love PB- but the board became a burden and feel it's best to move on to a different board where can make a difference while also focusing on my current boards

No to mention, the board had been decreasing over time.

I think it is time.

Okay, since the general consensus seems to be to close this board, I'm going to close it if no one applies to moderate this board by the application deadline.

Rumored right now it just seems the interest is fair and inconsistent for the board
