Possible Board Closure Discussion: Please Read and Respond!

Myself (Italiangal) and Belle (hedawanheda) 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.

As you know.... Our counts aren't necessarily low, they have been stable but tend to drop bit by bit. Soon enough it'll get lower with the loss of our lovely Belle. I cannot commit as much time as I once did and with the board becoming repatative, it feels there isn't a place at FF for this board anymore. With no new content and posters leaving, things started to become very stale. Feel free to discuss here what you hope and would like to happen. Thanks

Without Diana and Belle this board is not the same. I personally gave up on the 100 that's why I don't post often here.

I support the decision and want to thank our two Mods for everything.
You two made this board a great place. Won't forget

That's too bad Monday and Tuesdays are busy days for me and the thread of board closure is somewhat of an disincentive for me to continue posting here.

It's very sad. But sometimes nothing can be done.

It's a lovely place but without Belle and no possible new mod, it's going to be very hard to keep going here. All is not lost yet though until we get everyone's view

without Belle it's not the same. she is Eliza's #1 fan and the board feels incomplete without her.

i'm also not much often here because of the same reasons like Mystery.

i am okay with the board closing. we have other places to discuss Eliza.

also a huge shout out to Belle and Diana

I’ll be sad to see the board go if that’s the decision, but you are right that it’s better to leave on your own terms instead of being forced to close. It was fun for us, but it can be tough to meet the post counts when we don’t have much to discuss lately or some of us have moved on from the show.

If you decide to keep open, I’ll make my best effort to post, but I couldn’t promise anything.

Sorry it came to that but I can understand the decision very well. I admit I lost my interest in discussion threads and only posting in gaming threads isn't the sense of keeping a board alive. When Belle is gone, the heart of the board is gone and we would struggle to keep discussions going. That's why I also think it's the best to close it down.

When this forum closes, I or someone else can start her thread in the Celebrities section.

It's already the second board closing in a short time. But i agree, when people leave and there barely any regular posters it may be better to close than to be forst one day by the admin.

Sad to see this but understandable with how The 100's seasons are

Especially by reading the thread it seems Belle was the heart and soul so best to go on your own terms especially if discussion can't be kept and I know all too well the burden just games can have. I've closed 2 boards cause of it and left another cause of it

Yes it's sad, but sometimes it's time to say goodbye.
