Possible Board Closure Discussion: Please Read and Respond!

I have been discussing this, and I think that it may be time to close this board. The 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 15 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 me know what you think. I'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.

I have been wrestling with this decision because I would love to have the board stay but it's hard to keep a board going when not very many people show interest in posting. It's become somewhat of a chore for me to have to post every day or we don't meet our minimum.

I am sorry to read this

Personally, I'm not a fan of the show so I can't post as much as I would like to. Still, this is sad and I wish there was something I could say to make you feel better but realistically it's difficult modding a board on your own especially when the post count is declining. It's tough but you have worked hard and that's the bottom line is you can only try your best.

I hope you will get the support you deserve behind you to keep this board running.

I'm sorry to hear this.

I wish I could stop by this board more often.. like I used to. But I've already been kinda busy in rl lately. I hope you'll be able to keep this board opened. And I agree that it'd be better if we knew about getting another season. Because I think I read somewhere that there's only gonna be this season (dunno if it's true).

It would definitely help if there was some idea of when the show was coming back. Long hiatuses sometimes cause people to lose interest.

It probably doesn't help that Netflix gives you all the episodes in one hit so after that you've got a year long hiatus most likely so plenty of time for fans to move on or lose interest. I'd presume you're probably looking at a March release again for season 2 too

Good luck to the board
