Hello to those who post,
As Countdown is only played in January, I have decided to abandon this Forum until December 2019.
I and a few others don’t use it till Countdown is screened and this Forum is starting to become less and less abot Countdown so there is no need for it to operate outside of Countdown repeats.
The website itself will still be viewable as it is there for Countdown purposes.
This forum will be operating till February
"Discuss everything COUNTDOWN and beyond!"
I am most upset and disappointed that our beloved discussion board, related to Countdown, will be closed down for 10 months of the year. A huge amount of topics, throughout the year, seem to be very much related to Countdown - episodes, trivia, songs, guests, hosts, missing episodes, etc. I love having the whole year to chat about all things related to Countdown.
Yes, much of the discussion centres around Rage, upcoming guests, Vault nights, etc. But really, they are still very much connected with Countdown and the era we love to chat about.
It's your decision, Jason .... absolutely. I thank you for setting up such a wonderful discussion board, and the opportunity to converse with other Countdown fanatics, such as myself. It's been heaps of fun!
If we can't chat here, I welcome Nathan's option of creating another forum, where we can continue enjoying this awesome show.
I understand Jason’s decision to close the forum as I have checked it now and again throughout the year though there isn’t much activity by forum users including myself so I get why he decided to take this action. I am more than happy to support any other forum related to the retro period. Gee why stop at music, so much Aussie tv drama and variety series of that era that is all now too but forgotten. 🤔
Is this a good idea?
Bravenet t&c's say "Bravenet further reserves the right to terminate any user's account if there is no evident activity for a period of 90 days.". Isn't there a possibility that they might delete all the content here if there are no posts until December?
That I always gripe is news to me.
I wasn't boasting about my forum having better software - it's just easier to use and has features like personal messaging and doesn't require e.g. captchas if you make more than a certain no. of posts in a period of time like here does. While this forum is usable, it's very early 2000s in its functionality. That's not a personal criticism of you.
Anyway, what I was leading to by making that point is... if your forum was costing a similar amount per month as mine, you're getting ripped off, because it could be on newer software. I was going to suggest, if that was the case, that you look for another, similar hosting site.
