That’s so pity…
My mind still refuses to believe that ATF will be permanently closed.

It is a pity - but so much in reading exchanges is kind of personal that I wouldn't like to see it as part of a permanent encyclopaedia.

You can save them on your machine now. At least you don't have too many posts to save

Wow, the end of an era!

Back in the day, when I was active in this Forum, I enjoyed the discussions and the assistance.

Best wishes to all! And thanks, Solandia!

Solandia, I just sent you an email, and I hope it makes its way through.

I own a company that manages a LOT of message board sites, please let me save TarotForum for you!! No training is necessary, I won't have ANY problem understanding the complexities... believe me, I've been doing this for 20+ years.

Please email me, it doesn't have to be lost!!

Definitely the end of an era. Even though I haven't posted much here, I have learned so much here. When practicing reading, I always come here to search posts about takes on meanings of the cards.

I haven't made any friendships here, but the forum as a whole has just been with me for so long.

I, too, closed a forum a couple years ago that was active. Solandia, I can completely relate. Selling isn't an option. Even if you have good moderators and good people...there is so much behind the scenes work to teach. I remember spending Christmas day working on my forum....it's hard to know if other people are truly willing to be that kind of dedicated. It's really no offense to anyone...just feels weird handing over the reins to someone else when something like this isn't just a project, but your baby.

I'm relieved this forum will at least be read-only so I can still search.

I'm sad to see it go, but I can totally relate to Solandia.

Thank you all for everything, and to everyone who has been a part of this community, be it one post or several thousand.

I'm so sorry about that.
My magical path started here, here I learnt tons about tarot and made some friends. I didn't logged much in the past months due my few free time, but it will be a big loss if this forum closes.
I would be very happy to se a continuation on this site, for many of us it was the only place to learn about tarot and get some practise.
Really sorry about that. Solandia, thank you for all the work you made and the opportunity you gave all of us to enjoy and share tarot chats and practises. I will you all the best in the future and will be forever gratefull for giving me that oportunity to learn.

Xxx

FWIW, it doesn't HAVE to be that way. I can save it without any help at all! I would just need the login info to the database, and I can move it all to my own server and database structure, quick and painless.

I promise, I manage over 50 message board sites and have done this same thing many, many times.

Please, Solandia, do a reading on this and you'll see... this forum has been such a huge asset, I hate the idea of losing it! Just yesterday I did a spread for a friend and needed help, but without the forum there's just... no help to be had.

If you still say no, I'll probably build a new one that I hope everyone will want to use. I went ahead and bought http://eTarot.net, but it would be so, so much better if we can save the site everyone already loves!!
