    Hindsight being 20/20, with we would have thought to be more proactive about throwing the community a lifeboat before we were left to drift. We could have saved the community then, instead of trying to scrounge around for the stragglers now.

    Indeed....it is rather unfortunate. But I am glad for it, now.

    thats true... I could do that if you guys want. would that mean killing the book forums? I could move the posts to the fiction reading section.

    Hmm I think a decision like that would need to be polled and everyone consulted.

    :p Well, for myself, I love the books, but I'm here for the community. I think the books could all be in a section (like "Sword of Truth") and have discussion threads for the books and it would be fine. That being said, when the forum grows maybe the demand for discussions surrounding the individual books will grow as well.

    Not a bad idea. I could put it in its own forum under nonfiction.

    Hmmm... seems I've gotten the ball rolling on this a bit. Not exactly my intention but I'm glad it's giving people something to think about.

    FWIW, I don't want people to think that I have any ill thoughts towards Terry or his staff. Terry himself released a statement at one point that for me cleared the staff of any wrongdoing. If Terry was willing to step forward and clear the air, for me that's good enough. Also let it be known that I still fully support Terry and his new direction. Unfortunately that new direction is one that discarded the old community. So be it. He gets my support nonetheless as I continue to purchase and read his books. He doesn't need my support beyond that. That's not why I come here.

    I come here because of you guys. That's what matters to me. With that in mind, let's pick up the power tools. Time to build a new home for ourselves and I see this as a great starting point.

    Why thank you!

    Plus, and this is just another thought that occurred to me: it was Terry's decision to do away with the forum and therefore his decision to disband the PI community. As I see it we would be honoring his wish to cut our ties with his name there. Of course we could still discuss him, but we don't have to feature him. Just a thought, but then again, my brain is full of shit like that. LOL

    I just got the weirdest sense of Patriotism towards our little community then, "They tried to disband us but community love will prevail!!!" Hahah okay. :/

    *climbs off soapbox*

    I completely agree with you, rainshadow.
