I still check back here almost every day out of habit. Just to see the tumbleweeds rolling by.

I do too, but I'm on the Reddit and Goodreads PPK forums more of the time.

I keep reading but not posting. It feels sad to post.

Gonna try to amp up my PPKing game, though, because yeah, lets use this while we have it.

I miss the active discussions here ... don't like the fast-moving reddit - I need to know what I've read and how far I've got in a discussion - reddit moves way to fast for that and is ever changing so I can't remember where I had to stop reading ...

Exactly! It's like a free-for-all, as opposed to the forum's porch swing with Grandpa's vegan caramels.

I feel like new vegans will miss on such a fun resource when the PPK's no longer around.

Yes, a lot of vegan resources online can be kinda...strange. Full of arguments, all sorts of odd advice and misinformation, and general unfriendliness. Sure the PPK wasn't immune to flounces but it's so refreshing to have a vegan community that's just...nice. For me the PPK hasn't really felt like a "vegan forum" rather a forum full of good people who happen to be vegan. Kinda like I wish the rest of the world was.

I'm still checking this forum fairly regularly. It's heartbreaking to see it slowly withering away like this. Every now and then I look at reddit but the format just doesn't work for me in the same way :(

Nailed it.

I’ve been pretty lost without these forums, too, during this time of unprecedented horror.

Maybe if we have more discussions here and leave the venting and ranting to Reddit we can continue quietly along.

Maybe Isa's going to pop up at the stroke of midnight, wish us all a happy new year and tell us it was a big joke. It would be a good start to 2017

I'm pretty sure Isa sent out the message about closing the boards so only the faithful would be saved. This is our Rapture guys. The RaPPKture

The new sign ups for the boards have been closed pretty much since the announcement. It's kinda weird not to have kitchen counter spam.

THANK YOU for reminding me of that wee gem o' a thread! Have we had a 'thread of the best threads' since the boards were due to be shutting down? Someone should get on that!
