    Should the forums stay open?

    In lieu of creating a private forum on dpreview, I can always keep these forums open. What do you all think?

    Jeff, there is a lot of history in this forum. Seems a true shame to just blow it all away.

    Although I may not be a frequent poster, I am a frequent visitor. I would very much like to see the forums remain open.

    I would very much support keeping the forum open if at all possible, and asked Jeff this question a couple of weeks ago. I also intimated I would be prepared to contribute financially (along with any other members who cared to contribute), if this were the only factor involved in retaining or closing the forum.

    Personally, I like the fact that the forum doesn't get hundreds of posts a day like some other forums. It allows me to keep up with what's being posted, and also to get to know the posters and their work better on a more individual basis. And there's some terrific stuff posted here almost daily. Add to that the fact that this is one of the easiest forums to navigate and post photos to, and has the friendliest membership, and you can see why I'd like it to continue for as long as possible.

    Keeping these forums open is nice...but is there a significant cost to you Jeff?

    Jeff,

    If it does not have a negative financial impact on you, then I am for keeping the forums open. Oterwise you should do what is best for you.
