I didn't like the way they told us the Blog & Forums page would be shut down. A statement instead of a mod posting on this board. So, I don't care what they say nor will I be buying anything in thanks or even saying thanks. And that's the way I feel about it. 


100% agree.

@Marp, This may be a temporary reprieve, no guarantees. Proboards is owned by one person and reserves the right to shut down its forums for any or no reason at any time, so no guarantee there either.

@FLgardener @On It @sonson @Sushismom @ThinkingOutLoud    I think they are making matters worse.  Tell us one way or the other and stop the beating around the

bush.  You are making it worse QVC

I didn't take it that way at all.  Buildiong out the community experience is to me just giving more options for a better community experience here and it seems they became aware that also meant keeping them due to the huge response from those wanting to keep the forums.

Yes, and those who left here have a new home and I know many might not come back. Many will and then many might do both forums. I hope the dust settles and all can be friendly or at least cordial. 😇


@FLgardener 

I am one that will be doing both forums. I don't quite trust them anymore.

@Marp  Totally agree with your statement!  Those are very 'carefully crafted words' used in their statement about the boards remaining open.  

 

I believe after the holidays are over, their expanding and building will be done... and, sadly, so will this board!

@BalletBabe , I had no desire to boycott QVC even though I was upset about the announced closure of forums. 

 

You have exercised your rights. Many have been polarized by all this. I just don't feel that way. I had concerns about the new forum, but was observing it to keep options open. I see it has gone private. I understand.

 

I have concerns about this forum also, just not enough to make me want to leave.

 

Best to all. 🙂

They're not going to keep them open permanently. I prefer the other forum anyway.

@Pook,  you may be correct.  Perhaps my 20+ years of reading, writing and evaluating contracts and legal documents has clouded my perception of what was written and the words can be taken at face value.

The more I learn the more I realize how little I know.
Are you setting an example or being an example?
