Film Noir : A thank you to everyone.

A thank you to everyone.

Hi all,being very fortunate in having online access since the late 90's,I've been a member of various film/music sites over the years,and I've never seen one of them do something as dumb as this!

Around 10 or so years ago,I hit an extremely low point in my personal life. During this time,one of the few things that continued was my interest in movies. Looking round for credits to a film one night,I was shocked to find a web site inhabited by people who shared my passion for movies.Spending a year or so too nervous to post on IMDb,I finally decided to post on the friendliest board on the site:the Film Noir board.

I want to say thank you to everyone who has made this such a wonderful place to visit daily,and that being the final host of the main thread has been an absolute honor.

I hope that we will all be able to transfer to a new site,and that you all have a good weekend,MDF/Chris.

Re: A thank you to everyone.

Thank you for hosting the main thread here on this board. I'll miss it so much. What am I gonna do now? Watch a Noir movie and not talk about it?

Re: A thank you to everyone.

Well, we got two weeks to find a new site if that is possible.

Lets try and list suggestions…

Re: A thank you to everyone.

One site people keep mentioning is this:

http://www.icmforum.com/index/">http://www.icmforum.com/index/

I don't know it, might be worth checking out. Somebody mentioned reddit, but I think the threads there look barely organized.

I'm hoping that they change their minds, if enough people complain….

I think that sums this up perfectly Chris!

Re: A thank you to everyone.

Hi Frazer,since seeing this news,I've been struggling to think of another site (even non-entertainment related) that has shot itself in the foot so badly,the only thing that comes to mind is The Torygraph turning into a clickbait site.

With this being our last call of duty on this site,are you on FB mate?

Thanks.

Many thanks to you Chris,

I have always enjoyed reading your excellent reviews. Many thanks for hosting the weekly Noir thread here, I've picked up so many fantastic recommendations courtesy of that thread.

All the best to you in the future.

MDF, thank you for all the hard work! Hope to see you again on whichever forum takes this one's place.

Re: A thank you to everyone.

And thanks to you for your efforts and friendship away from the boards.

Hi Spike,thank you for the very kind words, (and for giving me the chance to host the thread)and that with it looking like a new home has been decided on,could you E-Mail Gordon (he was last on 6 days ago) the news about where we are all going?

Thanks.

Re: A thank you to everyone.

Yes I'll do that now. I know he was having some health problems recently so I hope he's ok.

Re: A thank you to everyone.

I'm sorry to hear that Spike,let Gordon know that everyone hopes he makes a speedy recovery.

Re: I didn't know!

I didn't know he was ill! Please pass on the message that I hope he makes a very speedy recovery!

Re: He aint at deaths door

Gordon has been a regular poster on The Blackboard a great Film Noir Board in a very antiquated format that unfortunately has an administrator that went MIA, it's cruising along on autopilot with dwindling participants, a lot of good info, and discussion, but no new members have been able to get approved for what seems like years. It's a shame.

Yep, I tried to get on there when BackAlley folded (boy could we do with that forum now).

Hey MDF,

Big respect to you for taking the thread on all that time ago and for holding the fort ever since.

You're a star.
