Effective immediately, the EzineArticles Forums have been removed … with all of the traffic being redirected back here to this Blog.
This was a very difficult decision that we’ve agonized over since 2006 when we abandoned daily forum updates in favor of this Blog as the central communications hub.
Running 3rd party forum software demanded constant security patches to our already highly-customized implementation. In addition, we fought spammers daily. I know there are other forum platforms out there, but it was our goal to make whatever replaced our current forums software to be one that is tied into our current membership interface system. I think it’s absurd to ask you to become a member of “EzineArticles.com” and then register again to participate in our forums with a separate account.
To those who love the “forums” concept: While I can’t offer you a date for when they will return … know that we’re still committed to having them.
Any questions or thoughts?
