This forum has not been active in a while. I posted a thread titled "Who's here?" on Jan 1st. Dawn is the only one to have responded.

If you want this subforum to stay, post here saying so. We'll leave this open for two weeks (until Feb 4th).

I know I'd be back here more regularly once this little one's born.

I don't always get a chance to post here but I do check in. It's kinda like the one place us grad's have to post, and catch up since we're all over the JM boards these days. We were really here for each other when we were going through our losses and the healing. I'd kinda be sad to see it go.

I totally agree with Nicole. The main forum is a place to help those who are grieving and recovering from their loss but this forum is for those of us who are parenting AFTER experiencing those losses. It's a total different kind of parenting than others who have not experienced re-current m/c. This forum is sort of like a place where old friends can get together and have coffee. We love each other, trust each other and share a bond that no one can break and it would be truly sad to see that just deleted. This forum holds history for us and I often go back and read old posts and smile at the joy our babies have brought to all of us women, so deserving of the happiness.

Just going to put in the two cents.

Augie and I have to see this board active or we're not going to be allowed to have it. That's the thing. We don't want to see it go, but unless it's active she and I aren't doing our jobs in the eyes of the JM heads.

Is there anything she and I can do to make you want to post here a bit more? Games? Call out threads? A roll call once a month? We want your ideas, because of of all the boards that we host, we're a bit outta place here cause we're not grads!

We definitely appreciate your input too!

Isn't this a subforum and not a board? How is the activity on this "subforum" any different than another other subforum that just lists links and doesn't have conversation on it? Sorry, but I see plenty of boards on JM that have subforums that may only get a few posts per month but aren't closed. It's not the main board so I'm not understanding the need for closing it.

As Rhonda mentioned. We all have history here on this subforum (and many good friendships that are over 3yrs old that started on the PL board), and the main board isn't a place for us to post about parenting after our losses. We may not post every day or week, but it's still used as a support when we need it and having the option there is the point, not to make it a super busy subforum with fluffy posts. That's the nature of a support board. You use it when you need it. I'm not one to post here on a regular basis because there are other boards that serve that purpose. This subforum holds a special place in terms of support. I don't need it every day but I do like to know it's here when I need it. I don't feel it's appropriate for me to post on the main board because I'm in a very different place in my healing, and often forget to turn off my siggy. Sorry, I'm being blunt but that's my 2 cents.

Sounds like you've alreay made up your mind though.

no mind has been made up what so ever at this point, all we're trying to do is see if this section does have enough need or not. From your responses yes, it does.

I was under the impression that each board, whether it be a sub forum or not, needs a certain amount of traffic to stay open. It was the same on another board I hosted. But I will get clarification from the higher ups and let you all know what they say.

I would love to keep this. As Ashley stated there are rules we have to follow. This is directly from a post Rachel made:

"Each board should have no more than 10 subforums. However, even if you have less than 10, they must be active or they need to be deleted. Birth story subforums are exempt from this requirement."

From the response this thread has gotten I plan on keeping it as long as they don't say anything to me (or Ashley) about the inactivity. We were just wanting to not let it get to that point.

It's obvious to me now, that this subforum is wanted/needed. What can we do to assist you guys here. Help us out. We're not grads, but as hosts of RPL, we are still responsible for this subforum. We're asking for input here.

Hi ladies, just popping in here. As Augie quoted, subforums do need to be active in order to remain. When I check up on boards, I look at the subforums and if they have not had new topics in a month or more, then I will PM the hosts.

The reason that we limit subforums is because it affects our load times. We add new subforums every day and if we have lots of inactive subforums, it really does slow the site down for everyone.

I hope that clarifies it for everyone.
