Keeping these boards
Feb 19th, 2014, 9:17pm
 
Are these boards worth keeping? Traffic is negligible and Facebook seems to handle most things... thoughts?

I like them, but Facebook has somewhat taken over, so you may be right.

Personally I like them. They are a lot more structured and less cluttered than facebook. But I must admit traffic has decreased quite significantly, I think the newbies gravitate towards facebook rather than these boards. It would just be a shame to see these boards go. And going on a trawl of old messages and threads has been an occasional guilty pleasure of mine. Is the cost to maintain this site significant? Or is this simply a thought towards removing an unused part of the web?

I can proably stick these boards on the Aberddu server easily enough (I think I already moved these over to NginX / FastCGI ages ago, which is how I roll over on the 'ddu)
Unless you need to keep the VPS up for anything else Funcan?

I prefer these boards to Facebook. Easier to find what you're looking for.

I do like the boards and wish more people used them. You can actually find discussions from yonks ago on here. But yeah, Facebook is just the easier way of organising things and contacting people (unless you're John) these days.

I'd be sad to see them go, they still have occasional flashes of life.
 
John uses them to organise his statics and the Aberddu IC board has been used this year.
 
These boards are how I found warps and may still be useful for freshers.

I think they are worth keeping, but its the current crop of students that will probably need convincing

Keeping them is not a problem, I use the server as a handy UK IP address and the incremental cost is almost nothing.
 
Sounds like people still like their existence, so I'll have a think about how to breath a little more life into them. Cheers for the replies...
