Forum NOT closing
Posted 16 November 2008 - 06:03 PM
This forum needs to be renewed and I don't think I'll be doing so. I'm not 100% sure yet, I need to give it some more thought. I've got a few days until the forum goes offline due to non-renewal. I will send an email to all of the members once I have made my decision.
Ofcourse if I don't renew this place, someone else is more than willing to take it off my hands.

Ha Ha! Sorry dude. Just thought it best to let everyone know so you all know what's going on.
Well, that's certainly a discouraging note to see upon logging on.
A bit of both. I just can't bring myself to care enough about Amy to run this forum anymore. I don't post much in the Amy sections of the forum. I like to take part in the Random section more. I just don't think I should run the forum anymore as my lack of interest in Miss Winehouse OBVIOUSLY shows in my comments and I think someone who is more interested in her should run the forum. It'd be a more positive place if the Admin of this forum actually LIKED Amy. Hope that made sense.
Is it because of your loss of enthusiasm for Amy, Clare? Or it just takes too much of your time or money? Just curious.
It also takes up alot of my time and I feel I should venture away from the forum and direct my time and energy into something I enjoy more. And then there is the money factor and the fact that I have none. I want to move out of my mum's within the next few months so can't really afford to keep this place going. I know alot of you have contributed towards the forum and I am SO grateful for that. Your money has helped the forum grow and become the best Amy forum online, if I do say so myself.
But as I said I'm still not sure what I'm going to do. :-S

I know I've said this before - that I'm going to leave the forum - but I've been mulling it over for weeks now, waiting incase I got a sudden shock of interest again... but I haven't.
It won't happen yet, but I'm pretty sure it will eventually. It's pretty hard to imagine someone else running this forum - as pathetic as that sounds - but I just can't put alot of effort into it anymore.
Please email me if you're interested in taking over the forum. I'm not promising anything but atleast this way I can see who wants to take over. I won't be handing my baby over to just anyone.

Balancing a tough mind and a good heart is always difficult, regardless of circumstances. Having turned my mind to mush, I don't have that problem.
Aw thanks Alan. But I don't think my choices are as difficult as hers. Ha ha!!
I've never thought any of the (usually well-deserved) criticism of Ms. Nuthouse has been out of place here. She embodies every sin and virtue in the book, and if she didn't, she wouldn't be the world's greatest singer. I love her unconditionally, like a parent, but always aware of how she can often be a selfish, ungrateful, enormous fucking baby.
You're hungry? Eat! Tired? Sleep! This, according to one of the Zen Patriarchs of Japan, is the secret of life.

Handing the forum over to someone else is one thing, shutting it down is quite another.
As Alan said, you've done a great job. This is the house (home, really) that you built, and we're all living in it. When I stop to think of the work you put into it, it's pretty amazing.
I hope you will still visit occasionally, in the Random section at least, as I hate saying goodbyes. We'll be keeping your pic on the mantlepiece. :drink:
