Future of the Irish Skateparks Forum

Hi Folks,

As you may or may not know, there's currently a review being done of all the Hosted forums (link) - basically we're looking through them all and seeing which ones are very active and can be made into full forums, and which are completely devoid of life and can be archived.

This forum seems to fall somewhere in the middle; it's very quiet, but seeing as there has been a bit of activity in the last 12 months or so, we wanted to check in with the people who use it to see if there's any desire to keep it open. We don't want to archive a forum that could potentially be "revived" so if people are interested, we'll keep it open. However, we'll be reviewing the activity level in about 6 months time, and if there forum is still this quiet, then it's most likely to be archived.

If the forum is kept open, the only change will be that the forum won't reside in the "Hosted" category any more - it'll be moved to one of the main Boards.ie categories.

If the forum is archived, all the content will still be available to view and the forum will be moved to a different 'archive' section - privacy and hidden status will remain in place so if the forum was private and hidden before, only those who had access to it will be able to view it after it is archived.

If anyone is interested in keeping the forum open, please give your thoughts below.

I think it should be kept open, its a good source for information. This is one of the first places i went when my kids started to get into skateboarding which in turn got me back on my board.

I think it would benefit from being a main category and also with a name change.

I'm not even sure if its widely known about. I know some guys I'll try send them this way.

Hi everyone,

Unfortunately, there hasn't been any resurgence of the forum since we last reviewed it and as a result we will have to archive the forum. However, all content will remain available as the forum will be accessible in an archived section. Privacy and hidden status will remain in place so if the forum was private and hidden before, only those who had access to it will be able to view it after it is archived.

We recommend starting a thread (or threads) in the Extreme Sports forum. It is also on the quiet side and in need of some attention, but threads there may benefit from being in a broader interest forum.
