Hello friends and members,
We’ve had to make some major changes to the way we operate our online presence during 2015.
Unfortunately the Administration team finds itself rather overtaken by real life, in other words, it is getting increasingly harder for us to maintain the Forum in its current format.
Also, in regards to my own situation, I am going to be away overseas and within Australia quite a lot this year….overall, I will be away from home around 9 weeks in total. This too creates issues for me regarding my participation in Forum/Torchwood Aust life.
So, at this point in time, we have decided to take a step back from our traditional Forum. Members and guests will still be able to access the Forum, and view all posts to date, and of course Members will still have access to the exclusive area where our interviews are uploaded. BUT, only the administration/moderators will be able to post to the Forum boards.
Our main website page (yes this one) will remain operational for updates, and our main online presence will be via Facebook (and to a lesser degree Twitter and our Flickr group).
We have quite a large membership on Facebook now, so we would love to see a LOT more interaction by our group members there, and plenty of chatter etc.
We will still run competitions online, but haven’t nutted out yet in what format; initially it may just be via the Facebook group, but may incorporate posts on the Forum itself – we will sort that out as we go along.
We are still alive, we are still Torchwood Australia, that is all still the same….but we realise that Members are busy too, like the Administration, and at this point we feel this is the best move forward.
At some point, we may or will reactivate the Forum again, for you to post to.
I have now been involved with Torchwood Australia for close to 8 years, and that has taken a great deal of commitment to run the website and forum for 7 years of that time. But it is something I feel very passionate about, otherwise it probably wouldn’t have been around for this long.
In 2016, TW celebrates its 10th anniversary since it first aired in the UK, and in 2017 we celebrate our own 10th anniversary – I would love to see us still around for that, but only time will tell.
Feel free to contact the administration by the various means, if you have any queries about what is going on.
We hope to still see you around, we love to interact with you all, and we hope you still want to be a part of Torchwood Australia.
All the best to you!
Cheers, Ruthy (aka EvilRuthy)
