WTF! forum - Options for the future (its not so distant now)

Postby Sherry » Tue Aug 05, 2014 2:57 am

Hello anyone reading this. Hope you are happy and well :)

Its been a long while since I posted on here. When I stepped back from updating the main site I pretty much left the ship that is forum shaped in the hands of the wonderful trusty Venus and the lovely Nancy. Thank you times a million plus infinity ladies. Without you it would not have been running over the past few years :D

Now, on to the forum news. I've been discussing with Venus my thoughts about what to do with the forum from here on out. I am not going to do anything rash (its been years after all, so whatever happens won't just happen overnight :lol: ) but would like to know if anyone has any feedback, thoughts or suggestions before I sit down and make any final decisions.

I will be honest here and say my preference is to close the forum in the not too distant future, archive all the threads/posts and then as with the main site, leave it all here online for future reference. I am working out from the amount of live traffic the forum has had for a fair while now, how quiet it is on the Conchords front overall and that without more output on a regular basis from the Conchords the volume of people visting and posting on the forum will not increase much at all and only a small number are really active and posting these days. Also social media, filesharing and other platforms have taken over a large portion of how fans interact and how they contribute or enjoy the Conchords. Nothing wrong with that, times change, things progress, people move on.

You are welcome to reply here, PM or email me at the old WTF email found on the main site.

Cheers

:( :tears: I understand, but it still makes me sad. It was wonderful to speak with Bret this past spring and mention being a moderator on WTF, and see his face light up with recognition.
I think one of my favorite WTF moments that I shared with him was all of us from all around the world watching the Academy Awards at the same time and squealing with delight when he won.(as only we can with all our emoticons!) And as usual, he was his unassuming self, saying, "yeah, yeah, that was pretty cool."
So many friendships have begun here, and six years later we still meet up! Thank you, Sherry, for making this site a welcome, happy place and a home for all of us to gush about our two favorite guys. :love:

No, no, she's a fish that's just a little bit

:nod: This forum has been and still is a special place for all of us and it has been an absolute pleasure to keep things running while Sherry took a step back. I've met many wonderful people because of this forum. Nothing has been set in stone yet but given the current levels of activity, we would like any feedback on whether or not the forum should be kept open and perhaps any suggestions to increase membership and activity. The forum was at its peak while the TV show was airing but now things are quieter on the Conchords front, the forum has also become quieter. I also agree that social media has changed how fans interact but whatever happens, WTF! will still continue on social networks for the time being. :)

Thank you ladies :)

Given current activity levels, its looking like the forum will close its doors in the not too distant future. I had thought to keep it open till the WIUO tour in the US had taken place but that is a ways off yet apparently and in all honesty, if the forum is a quiet as it is, there seems little point to keeping it open just to wait for that to come round. However, if people wish otherwise, let Venus know or reply here.

Should the Conchords at any point in the future plan a large tour, make another series of their TV show or do some other project together that may see an influx of fans return to posting online or new ones sign up wanting to, I will be happy to consider re opening the forum at that time for as long as interest is there and the forum actively being used as in people logging in and posting to the forum.

Cheers
