(My original post was about closing the forum. The conversation changed...)
Hey guys. I'm most likely going to close the forum soon. I was thinking I might leave it online as a resource (if that's possible without getting hacked), but it would be closed to new posts and members.
I created a Facebook group
so you all can get together there if you want to. That's so much easier for me to manage and doesn't cost anything. Running a forum like this has been costing a lot of money (about $500 per year) because I have to expensive hosting or else the forum and website get hacked, which is a huge pain to deal with. I'm not good at keeping the forum software updated, which leaves us open to hackers.
The forum has been getting a handful of posts each day, so I know some people are still using it, but not really enough to warrant the cost incurred. My website doesn't make much money the way it used to, so I'm paying for this out of pocket.
Anyway, if you have anything to say or want to offer a different solution, please do so. It has been a pleasure to be a part of this community for so long. The Everything Under the Moon Facebook page
is still up, but I haven't been posting to it. If someone thinks they'd like to help operate the page, you can get in touch with me. It has nearly half-a-million likes, so it's not too shabby for a pagan FB page. I wouldn't mind getting it going again, but I just don't have the energy to put into myself.
You guys have been awesome. Sorry to have to bring this particular party to a close, but hopefully we can keep it going elsewhere.
