I'm about 50/50 mobile and desktop when it comes to my internet browsing in general, and while I do not find the current forum unusable or anything on mobile it isn't optimal.  If you are moving to a new software system (which it sounds like is the case), then I'd imagine just about any package would include mobile support anyways.

The one feature I'd really like to see implemented is a togglable notification system.  You could set it up to notify you any time someone quotes you or mentions you in a post, and maybe even everytime someone posts in a "watched" thread.  Every other forum/community I've been a part of has this feature, and it is so handy in keeping conversations running organically.

Just thought Id check to see how things are progressing.  It sounded like we had some talented and capable people on this, but so you need more support?
When an alien resides with you in your land, you shall not oppress the alien. The alien who resides with you shall be to you as the citizen among you; you shall love the alien as yourself, for you were aliens in the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God.

Last I knew there was going to be some wiggle room with "end date" until we can figure out the logistics of movings things to an independent site for the forums.

I'd love to somehow integrate a new slack or discord channel with the new forum :)

I have not had a chance to go through the entire thread but just wanted to say that I am sorry to hear that the forum will be going away.  Though I do not post often I do check the site, especially the forums, daily and I appreciate all who have entertained and informed me on the forum.  I truly hope an alternative can be found and I would very much like to join.  If I needs to be a pay site I would be happy to contribute.

My understanding is that the Forum is not going away, just splitting off from CB.  In that respect, it makes no difference to me as I mostly use the Forum, much less other parts of CB.  So yes, I would pay for access too.

Just seeing this thread / the last few posts of it.  I would also pay for access.

Is there any way in which we can send a kind of "We've Moved" email to anyone/everyone who is registered on here? There has to be some kind of a member master list thingy, right?

It should be technically possible to do a one-time announcement/ blast. I know one thing that's been broken here is the email system but that's something meant to be fixed moving forward. I'd have to confirm re: privacy issues and make sure it's done properly, but it should be totally doable.

I'm also hoping we can put some sort of redirect or "goodbye, please visit X" link here in a way that works for SbNation, at least for a little while.

i would very much hope for a redirect link that lasts some months, otherwise the forums might lose too many users

As long as possible. Need to honor any wishes of CelticsBlog on how exactly it's done, but everyone has been very gracious so far and I'm sure it'll be worked out.
