[ APRIL FOOLS ] Discuss : Proposed Shutdown of Portal Forums

Shocked Don't really know what to say, i am very stunned at this sad and disappointing news, the forums have been a great source of information and a unique way of talking to PN and getting much more detail than you normally would from and ISP. I am just totally speechless. Sad

Need to post loads of bump posts to get my 1000 posts I planned!


EDIT: well done Liam you had me fooled there!

What a shame Sad
It's what makes this place interesting, and provides a feeling of community missing from the other ISPs. I guess it'll be like any other ISP now. I suspect that a lot of people (like me) will find it easier to migrate now, without the feeling that you're kind of walking out. Thanks to all the mods for their efforts and help.
Cheers.

It's a massive shame this is going to happen and will be a big loss to Plusnet's customers. Although there's a valid technical reason for it being shutdown, perhaps if the forums were not so tied into the Plusnet software they wouldnt be having so many problems with it.

Would it be a possibility to reduce the number of forums to perhaps an announcements forum for moderators/staff to post in to keep us updated?

This is going to have a knock on effect for staff as well in Plusnet as queries often raised here first will either be telephoned in now or tickets raised, both generating more workload for the Plusnet staff.

Sad

Edit : OK - I'be been fooled!!! Nice one Liam.

I'm afraid you made a crucial error, Liam, that revealed it wasn't an authentic Plusnet announcement. Wink

You didn't include the word "unsustainable". Cheesy
