Solanida thanks it's been fun. This is the last of the old sites I was on so it's sad to see it go but everything must end eventually. I am going to miss this place even if I haven't been around much the last few years it was where it all began for me and that makes it special just like my first deck. Solandia may the Kami look over and protect you and everyone else here.

And, a lot of us have actually met Solandia so, we don't think of her as just someone who pays a website hosting bill.

This is her heart and soul and, members are transient.

There are a number of other members who have the qualification, skills and experience to take over (myself included). It's not the point.

I have nothing against you starting your own community. I just don't think that you should be trying to take this community with you.

with love
Thanks purpls. That is exactly it. WE, the members who are - as you say - the community are saying that the person who made it, whose heart it is - gets to take it with her - because WE know that whatever you think, it would not be AT without her,

And also that we love her and support her in her decision. Because of how we feel about HER.

And yes - someone qualified and competent, who is a long standing part of the community, like purps, would perhaps be more suitable than a new member like yourself - but I've known purps for years and she already has more details about me than this place does - and I wouldn't' want to see her take over either.

Goodbye AT - it's been real.

Thank you, Solandia, for rocking my tarot world! AT was a huge part of my life for many years and I treasure the things I learned here and the people I met. I especically loved the year so many of us - including you! - had such a strong -presence at Readers Studio in New York and getting to meet so many peeps in Real Life.

Best of luck to Solandia and to everyone here and may we all go to spread the love of tarot wherever we go!

Solandia, thank you for all your hard work and dedication over the years. This forum is a great resource and I appreciate the fact that much of the information will be archived. I'm sure you have good reasons for this decision. Like others, I hope that you may change your mind and re-open the forum again. In any case, good luck in the future and many thanks.

Thank you, Solandia. Not many people in the world can say they created THE pre-eminent, global online community for an entire discipline. This is an astonishing feat.

This community has added a great deal of good to my life, even for years before I finally got a proper account in 2010, but it has also added immeasurably to the art of Tarot in the 21st century and going forward.

Very, very well done.
