Possible Board Closure Discussion: Please Read and Respond!

Nath 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 couple of 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 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.

Thanks.

Hot Rod

Really sorry to read this, I know you both put lots of time and effort into the board for many years. It's kinda weird to think it won't be here anymore and a little sad. Don't know what else to say really... just wanted to show my support for whatever you decide to do.

Thanks for showing your support. You`ve been such a great poster here and i`m glad that you're the first one to post here. I hope that some more people will post here soon.

This was the first board that I really posted on seems like a lifetime ago now, I'm just feel bad that my post count has dropped dramatically over the years. But everyone has always been very welcoming when I do return

Oh, that would suck. I haven't been around here as much as I should have, but you guys are great so it'll be a shame if the board were to close.

This is so sad I know you all have done so well in keeping this board open for so long .. I wished I posted here more I loved Eliza on buffy and the other movies she's been in .. I guess it's just. Hard cause she doesn't have a tv show or not doing as much work .. Regardless any decisions you make would be the best you all should be proud of what you have accomplish so far

Kirsty it was always a joy when you came back to post here with us because you brought us beautiful fanart

I will surely miss this place but it's hard to keep a board alive with so little posters. Eliza hasn't really done any TV or movies so little to talk about.

That's the hard bit yes you still have buffy board and the celebrities board to post on

I think it's clear which direction this is going.

Yeah, it looks like, barring any kind of miracle posting binge, we're gonna have to close this board. I really don't want to do this.
