Glad you are back to answering asks! Can I ask why you closed the shipper forum?
Sure, but be aware that it opened up again about a week later completely restructured. The way it was organized was leaving people who were there to enjoy their ships as targets for people who came into under the guise of “debate” because we had broad general threads for couples where everything about that couple could be discussed. The rules for the section created a lot of loopholes. We have never had love/hate threads so they were open to everyone. The other part of that is that there are also people who are ultra-sensitive about their ships and reacted poorly sometimes. So we simplified the rules, strengthened the penalties for frivolous reporting, made some changes in the thread structure to narrow the topics and gave shippers a place where they don’t have to worry as much about someone raining on their parade.
