Hi, all.

As in the title, although I'm new here, I do participate in a few other forums in the USA.

I'm from the USA, but like being able to get the perspective of those across the pond. I was a long time member of the Computeractive forums until it closed suddenly. I moved on the the Web User forums until it closed abruptly today. You guys aren't shutting down soon, are you? :D

Why did the other forums close?

This is what Web User said:
We’ve had a good run of more than 17-and-a-half years, but the popularity of online forums has significantly declined over the last few years, and it is now difficult to sustain keeping this one open.

My translation of that is "We don't find it cost effective because it doesn't generate income."
The forums always had a lot of participation by old and new members alike.

Sorry to hear that, it's always sad when communities lose a home :( If you know of any other displaced members please feel free to invite them here, we are no going anywhere (promise).

I'll PM them, as they let the Private Message feature work for a few days.
