Re: Everyone that is not happy about the forums going away, do this....

@goldensrbest  There's no reason to be upset, just come on over to the new proboard that's already set up and running.

I don't think the "new guy" was the driver of this. It had to be in the works for quite some time. 

 

The hard reality is that these forums are a dinosaur.

 

Only a small subset of QVC customers post here. while their FB page has a little over 3.1 MILLION followers. If it's not driving incremental sales or reaching their target demographic, and I'm sure they have enormous amounts of data with that info, it needs to go. 

 

@FrostyBabe1 

I see that 3.2 Million have Liked the page.  That does not mean that they are actively being followed. In fact if you look at all of the different postings the numbers are pretty paltry.

Email the new head guy that just took over October 1st.  Perhaps this will get this attention.  

 

Let's all do it!

 

 

 ETA - I did have his email address on here, but it was removed.  Might as well remove the entire thread.


@@San Antonio Gal  I sent an email yesterday to the email address posted here and it failed to deliver. At least I tried!

I do not believe it would change anything.  Probably happy to be doing a way with us all and our conversations.  Some have suggested Proboards and I just looked at that site and read some of the names of the newest forums just started.  What would we call ourselves, the Recovering Q. Rejects?  It is still amazing after being on here since 2007 not to be here ever again.  Those who have been here even longer from the beginning I cannot imagine the change.


@beckyb1012   I'll tell you for me, it's mind blowing! The Forums were the first thing I read in the morning when I started my day, checked my notifications and answered anyone who addressed @Shanus. I read over many forums and enjoyed the banter and questions. I appreciate @mellyg setting up the new site, but it will definitely take time for me to learn to navigate it and feel like it's a "1, 2  ,3" like the forum here.

I participated in the HSN forums before they changed @San Antonio Gal .  Back then you could private email others, etc.

Then they took that away.  It seemed to be the first step toward elimination.  Then the boards were heavily moderated just like it's been here the last 2 years or so.

 

So many rose up and wrote to the powers that be at HSN begging for the forums to be kept open.  Nope.  A decision had been made.  I'm sorry to say it will be the same here.  Most people that post here alot are the regulars and that's not much anymore as it's limited as to what you can say.

 

Now there still is an HSN community forum.  About 11 people online at best most of the time.  It's slow to post and very hard to post pictures.  Everyone left including me and I came here.

 

A shame, such is life.  I created an account on Delphi/Wisteria Lane.  I was "Serengeti" a few months back but had to take time off and had to put up a new nick here.  Over there I will be "Bunny123".  I'll give it a try -

nothing to lose.  I see some people there already.

 

 

 

 


@Pink123   Oh Geez, if people change their nics on top of everything else, how will we know each other? May I suggest not changing nics unless absolutely necessary and if you do change, maybe put your nic from here in parentheses? Afterall, not too long ago,these forums had difficulties and many had to change  nics to sign in. I still don't recognize who they are.

I think the closing of the forums is just the the beginning of the end for the Q.


@Group 5 minus 1   Hate to wish that on companies in this ecomomy, but yes, they do deserve some consequences for throwing us out with the bath water.

@BoopOMatic   I think to many, it's not a matter of setting up roots at the new site, but  a matter of principle how we're being treated. BTW, I don't recognize your nic. Did you change it?

of course, I agree with all of you that is sad our little corner is being demolished, but don't you think there was less and less activity? 

and Q isn't in the social or forum business so it is not unexpected to me

 

at least there is time to get a new place 

 

 


@jackthebear, I totally agree with you. Lately (the past year, at least), I've been noticing that one thread that I participate in semi-regularly these days, on Sat. mornings, back a few years ago it was not unusual for there to be several hundred posts, now it's unusual to go past one hundred posts, sometimes even less. Many weeks I no longer participate these days. These boards, in general, not meaning just one category or two, have become stale and tired. Perhaps it was just time.

No, I haven't been here long enough to change it! LOL. I guess I got here just at the right time, before the "end" came and they announced they are closing the forums. So I transferred over to the proboards forum. I did read here quite a while before I registered.
