GUTTED is all I can say, really sorry that you're having to shut things down - I did notice that each time I've been on here there are barely more than 1 or 2 others at the same time.

Sad day, was really hoping to get to know everyone and meet up at shows, walks etc etc.

I know it'll be missed but I also know that it takes time and effort to run these boards so 100% appreciate why you're closing the book.

All the best, Mart

Hi Mart, yes it's such a sad decision but it really is so quiet here now. It's been so great to chat to other owners and I will miss this.

Sad, but can't you just keep it going. Is it costing you any money to run the forum? If not, just let it stay open. Just my opinion. This is a great forum.

It costs nothing but time, but the time it costs is not justified by the amount of traffic. You can't have a forum that is not moderated (to remove inappropriate posts, step in if discussions go awry, etc.) so we have to check it, between us several times a day. We also have to respond to questions received through the 'contact' button. So I'm afraid just letting it stay open unmoderated and without an Admin team is not an option.

The thought did cross my mind, but didn't want to tread on anyones' proverbial toes as I've only been here 5 minutes.

I'd be happy to give it a go, I work from home a lot and am always on the net - would anyone be staying on from the existing moderators at all? Never done this type of thing before so it'd be great to have some help Wink

Read and collectively thinking. It might not be as straightforward as it first appears so don't get your hopes up too much.

Maybe the present admin could stay 'in charge', but only contacted in the case of an emergency?

I can always help out, it does seem after we made the decision the forum has gotten a bit busier again! Has Nifty been online recently?

Nifty hasn't been on since earlier in the month. The trouble is there is not much activity on here, as admin I come on at least 3 times a day & i'm the only one on here. Newbies sign on & ask a question & we don't hear from them again. Photos always got a good response but if your lucky 2 people may comment Rolling Eyes
If the forum was more active I would give it a go as the new admin Surprised

I'm in and willing to help - Gillys' comment sounds good too..? As do all the further posts - the recent increase in activity could be a knee jerk reaction of course BUT for what it's worth I think this is a great forum and it's the only dedicated one out there...

On here most says at some point even if only to see what's happening or post more photos etc.

It would be a sad loss for Staffordshire bull terriers. 

There's such a lot of support available, plus experience & general friendliness in a breed that's much maligned.

I’ve been coming here for years this is a fantastic forum. Think I have been a member since about 2011. It is only now that I am in a position to where I have my own Stafford now.

Hope to see you more and pictures of your Stafford😉

Hi all, new member and first time SBT (very proud)owner. I have found the forum to be very helpful. I think the “problem” with no new post is all the amazing advice given to previous posts. You will always find an answer to a question without having to post yourself, myself included. So, even if it has been asked before, ask again. That’s my plan anyway 😊.

Thats a very valid point Jess if people can find the answer they are looking for in past posts then no new ones will be being added. I as one of the oldest members on here will do my best to help it keep going as long as poss xx
