Digital Spy

to be downsized ... (November 2016)

Moderation certainly got poorer once Hearst took over the site. There was or still is some form of trolling, however even when they did the debit card checks, there were still multiple accounts from the same people.

Forums attract trolls like moths to a light. No matter what you do to try and lock them down, a troll will come. It may take weeks or months before they kick off so you most definitely won't spot them from the off. Sadly it's what happens when you have forums that are open to anybody to register on - and the troll is the one person who has to spoil it for everybody else.

There's a post on DS (not sure if it can be believed), but it's claimed Hurst tried to sell the AVForums advertising space to direct DS users to migrate to AV, AV said no thanks.

This was apparently confirmed by a long standing member of DS who has contact with a MOD.

It's a bit smoke and mirrors.

The forums will close on 1st Jan if true.

Mods deny it.

But they would be the last to know.

Will be a bit strange if it does close though cos I've been there 16 years, which is over half of my life :-O

Still at least there are other technology-based forums to use, and the racists can bugger off back to Stormfront, Breitbart or wherever else they came from.

We don't have long to wait to see if this DS poster is talking rubbish.

The closure announcement will be made on Monday at 6PM! (if true)

Like 95% of posts on Digital Spy, I'd take it with a pinch of salt.

Looks as if the poster was talking rubbish, why do people create these lies.

Just 95%?
Turns out nobody had 2020 vision.

DS posters are infamous for spreading rumours with no basis. One of the reasons why the forums have lost credibility.

Whenever someone does that, respond with these five words: Source, or it didn't/won't happen.

Well, looks like the guy who started this off needs to eat his words. Date passed, just tumbleweed.
