      Default Ending the forum?? Noooooo!

      I just saw the notice that said the forum would be discontinued on Nov 11. Is there any way to keep it?? I understand wanting to reduce costs, but the forum would be a major loss. I read the forum everyday, usually multiple times a day!

      Would it be possible to add a membership level for just the forum? I?d be open to that; however, I know it would only work if enough people (especially the regular forum contributors) sign up as well. I really hate the idea of losing the forum!

      Someone mentioned in chat that there are a lot of old forum posts that could be deleted. Would removing those posts reduce operating costs?

      If you decide to keep the forum and delete all the old post, I would be happy to help in deleting them.

      It would be wonderful if something could be done to reprieve the bones of these forums, even if we have to loose a lot of the archieves. They are BY FAR the BEST organised and EASIEST to access that I have ever come across. If we have to do away with some of the features (maybe if we want to share pictures we could post links to the image in dropbox perhaps) I can't figure out which features are the most costly but I'm sure we could manage with LESS if it would mean that we don't have to loose it ALL.

      Is there any say to preserve the free designs that were posted to forums by Shawn and members of the forum? I only just discovered that thread and would love to have time to explore it. Maybe move the data to a Groups.io just for DBS? And the voting list will go away too. We need to find a way to save those two at least.

      Well points and chat are gone I still had enough points for a couple more sets, but spent most of them this morning.
      I SO HOPE that Shawn will take pity on us and bring back the Chat, but it looks as tho this is the end of all of it.
      I have made personal copies of the wish lists and so will be continuing to vote for those that are on the lists as of today, but it's going to be hard to keep up after they eventually run out.
      I want to express a HUGE THANK YOU to all of you who have contributed to these wonderful forums - I will miss this SO MUCH

      The link for the daily freebie is also no more so maybe we only have the various Cute sites wish lists to carry forward

      Chat is gone, the menu access is gone, the forums will be gone soon. Keep in touch on Facebook group.

      I haven't posted a lot. Occasionally when I saw a need I would chime in. But, I will miss the forum keenly and the occasional interaction I have had with you all. Bless you all and keep sewing.

      Very sad to see the daily freebie has also gone, since that means there is no point continuing with the Wishlist (I think it was mentioned to perhaps continue it in the Facebook group) as there will be nothing to vote for

      We will have to wait and see what is still working. There is a new group on Groups.io for DBS-fans. Hoping to continue the voting lists and general forum type functions. Post pictures of your projects, etc.

      I feel lost. It is so weird not voting for a daily freebie, not categorizing new design sets, not buying new sets with points. Once I get accustomed to it, I guess it will be nice to have all that time to do something else.

      Get some rest so you're not "sew tired"?
