It’s been over a year since I started this forum and folks moved over from Kanji Koohii. Sadly, the forum has languished. We averaged only 26 users/day over the past three months. Of those, only four are Patrons, which doesn’t come close to covering the monthly forum cost.
I had hoped that the benefit of attaching the forum as a comment engine to UnseenJapan.com would help offset the cost of running it. That hasn’t been the case. Perhaps if I had more time to devote to it, it could grow a little more. Unfortunately, it’s at the bottom of my priority list, and I don’t see that changing any time soon.
Unless anyone can provide some compelling reasons to the contrary, I intend to shut down the forum on October 1st. You are free to export any posts/data you have on this site until that time. After that time, all posts and all information collected from forum members will be permanently deleted.
FWIW, I’m actively engaged in UJ’s Discord forum. If anyone is a $3 Patron or up, they’re welcome to join the discussion there. I will be focusing my attention on Twitter and the Discord forum as my primary areas of social interaction for UJ.
Thanks for coming over from Koohii and for the time and attention you’ve devoted to the forum.
