I have decided to close the forum on this website and take it offline permanently.
In preparation of this, the forum had already been closed to new registrations and had a notice on top that it would be going offline in some months.
Hardly anyone is using the forum anymore. Most people are on Facebook, Instagram, and other platforms. The amount of usage of the forum did no longer validate the time I had to put into maintaining it. You may not see it on the front-end, because I have several spam measures in place, but I had a daily job of removing spammers and their attempted postings. Also, I had to regularly update the forum software to keep everything running and safe. I’m afraid it was no longer worth the effort.
I want to extend a great thank you to the people who have been such loyal users of this forum. In the past I already handed out the title of ‘honorary member’ to several users, and several of you have even lasted until now! I’m looking at you, Treacle, The Queen of Hearts, and Beautiful Soup! And also Cheshire Dodo, Sakura in Wonderland, Mad Hatter II and many more who have visited and contributed regularly. Thank you for making it a nice place.
All the best to you all!
