So, this was a tough one that I had to think about for a bit, but it’s probably time to take down the message board. It’s just not best the way we communicate with each other at this point in the show’s life. We haven’t seen any new posts in a long time, and I haven’t been able to turn on registrations without a flood of spam. Social media is just so much more convenient and direct.
Plus, the message board software isn’t all that great. It’s been more of a burden than a tool over the last couple of months.
In the next couple of days, the board will silently go away — and so will the posts. In the future, we’ll move to Disquss for comments. That’s a really easy way to talk (outside of Twitter or Facebook or whatever) and there’s no crazy server strain, bulkiness, or anything.
It’ll be like a new start, which is refreshing in a way if you think about it.
