…and finally

News about TV Forum

This site closed in March 2021 and is now a read-only archive
Whilst I've probably read every single farewell that's been made in this thread, I've been putting off writing my own *final* post for the past couple of days. However, with what I'm guessing is just a few hours to go before the end, I better get in now lest I miss the chance to say goodbye altogether!

I guess my reluctance to 'sign off' is testament to the incredible community that Asa and the moderators have helped form over the years. As I mentioned in my first post in this thread, I'm of the view that TV Forum has been riding high since the purge of rota talk last year, with a great mix of posters, interesting discussion, and a really nicely built custom theme to serve as the backdrop! Whilst there are some odd characters in mix still (my recent additions to this list include This is Granada's whinging considered commentary over the demise of regional continuity on UTV, Roger Darthwell's neverending campaign for the return of BBC Three, and Ballyboy's incessant requests for the files to make his own BBC regional news title sequence), the atmosphere on the site of late has been so great that I almost wouldn't want to be without them!

Now, to his absolute credit, Rob has done a great job in building a new forum, and it's nice to see a mix of returning and new members over there. But for the moment I'm still holding back from writing my first post over there too. In part, that's because it all still feels a bit strange - even with a load of the new threads there being continuations of threads from here, I don't know where to begin. Then again, it's also because writing my final post here and first post there means that I've accepted the Forum is actually closing!

So, I guess the compromise I'm about to reach is that, whilst this is probably my final post here, I'm not going to say it is. Who knows what big rebrand/huge breakdown/other scandal could take place in the next few hours!

Thanks Asa, thanks all. It's been a real pleasure. All the best for what's next.
With not many hours left until the forums close baring any final moderating duties this will (probably) be my final public post on TVForum. Once again my thanks to Asa, Bail, and all of those who've contributed to the forums over the years.

So all that is left for me Keith, aka 'Charlie Wells' in my hideaway in Cambridgeshire is to say farewell. Oh, and so long and thanks for all the fish.

Honestly one of the biggest shocks of this all has been learning your name is not Charlie.
Also I weirdly feel kind of sad that barcode isn’t here for the end.

Will we still be able to login to access our private messages?
No. Login feature is being removed and request forum is unlocked for public access.

Last post from me. Though I'll stick around until the end.

Thank you once again to Asa, it's been a pleasure being a part of this.

I hope to see familiar faces over at the new place.

Take care, everyone!!! It’s been a pleasure.

On the last day of the forum, I just want to pass on another thank you to Asa and the team for 20 years.
Will be strange tomorrow not clicking on the the blue icon to come over here. See you over on the new place.
Thanks for working on this great and very informative forum. All the best for the future. TVF will be sorely missed.
I was only 11 when I first joined this forum, and I'm 30 in just over a month. It's been a place I've checked pretty much every day ever since - I'll be very sad to see it go!

Thanks for the hard work and effort that's been put in over the last couple of decades, and I hope the future holds excellent things for everyone!
dbl, johnnyboy and Roger Darthwell gave kudos
Imagine this is an April Fools joke (I'm kidding)
