No way in HELL we can let this forum die. It is the ONLY place I can go to discuss the Celtics. Living Cavs country I have nobody to talk to.

I have been here since 2008 and plan on being here longer. Many on here are folks I have lived and died with during games, offseasons, trades, injuries and other stuff.

Please do not leave without me.

Did Jeff say there is a Celticblog.com that will remain? I am confused. The forum IS Celticsblog. Lets keep it going guys.

Might I suggest a new username if/when the forums move?

Moved to Ohio after the 2008 season from Florida. Had already created my username. Just left it. Might tweak it after the move to wherever this place goes

I am not a tech guy, but, have been in business all of my life.

From what I've learned in business.

We have an asset here, The asset is all of us. We lend our time and eyeballs to this forum. A lot of well developed Celtic writers here...a lot. This is an asset that can be leveraged at the "new" location into advertising sales. SBNation is to be challenged for not having a notion of how to turn this asset into ad dollars.

Our writing and interaction is second to none and I am sure there will be plenty of clicks for whomever to monetize.

There must be an ad/click/monetizer firm out there somewhere who wants our fan demographic combined with our "moderated content". BTW dropping this bomb in July is tough as our numbers are thin now.

Has there been a traffic volume  stat analysis? I know our tech guys here can get this done.

Yes to all of this. Right now I'm working off of these stats, but I would agree there is more value here than just page views.

I agree with all the above, but I wanted to hop in and note that more than 1/3 of rollie mass’ posts have been new threads.

Given our number of users and general activity, I would imagine some advertisers have approached SBNation in the past.  Once some of the technical logistics are underway, that may be a place to start looking for the necessary monetary support.

I love the forums and would be wreaked without them. I'm not sure if I can offer much in the way of anything other that enthusiastic support. I worked in Computer design  and site setup related jobs in the 90s and early 2000s but I'm much more limited to low or no work levels and my memory comes and goes and things requiring an ever consistent  memory are mostly beyond me. I would so love to continue on fighting and arguing with you all like the large demented family we have become. Keep me posted....

Best way to watch a game is with the game threads so not having those would stink. Also someone mentioned Wyc/the Celtics jumping in to support it...I actually don't think that's a good idea. The unfiltered opinions here are something that I really enjoy - and while the Celtics currently have as good a management team as anyone could reasonably expect - if they screw up I want to hear the full extent of the anger expressed here - not a filtered version that won't offend more casual (or young) fans.

Unfortunately I am not overly tech-savvy so I'm of no help there.  However just a thought - if all else failed would a Reddit board be an option?  Granted we lose the user names and the archives.  But there would be zero connection problems and it would be a totally 'pure' forum.
