I've been trying to find something meaningful to write since the news broke, but I think I'll just let the thoughts flow naturally.
I joined the TV Forum something like 4½ years ago, as a sort of extension of my interest in television branding, at the time of the launch of French channel Franceinfo
. I contribute to the French website Lenodal, centered around French television presentation, and the TV Forum was a good place to exchange about television with a different (i.e. British) perspective, so I gladly joined!
I was, therefore, mostly posting in the "International News Presentation" and "French TV" topics, but reading the conversations about Newyddion, test cards, or Oneness was also very interesting to me. It has been a pleasure to share and to receive, and I learned interesting things here.
Dear Asa, I respect the reasons which led your decision to give the TV Forum a final closedown. I'm not sure I'll join the "purple successor" so here is my occasion to thank you, Asa, for giving us, and maintaining, this cozy place on the Internet to talk and share about television and about those who make television. I also wish to thank the moderators for their work, and all the members I had the pleasure to exchange with.
From me and teammates at Lenodal: salutations!
