A bit baffled as to why the ‘new administrators’ have seen fit to solely poll the ‘Facebook Group’ as to whether the SLE forum should continue. Unspecified ‘technical difficulties’ have been alluded to, but there have been over 8000 posts since Bob T, ‘Father of the SLE site’, set this up.
I really hope that, now Bob has moved on, (Poacher turned gamekeeper, LOL!), that there isn’t now an appetite to shut this site down. I think it would be a shadow of its former self if the forum were to close.
It was effectively a ‘straw poll’ to get an insight into what people felt. The technical difficulties are linked to an issue that would now cost money to sort out that was not the case when Bob did initially make use of it to guarantee simpler access for users.
What has become clear is that there is a significant majority in favour of the message board remaining active and so it is clearly worth any potential finacial outlay 🙂
