Dear Solandia,

thank you so much for running this place so long.

This place helped me so much in learning and growing as reader. And it gave me the opportunity to give the community something in return.

I've never encountered such a positive and open-minded community before! You can really be proud of it.

I wish you all the best!

I understand where you're coming from. I have no intention of starting any forums (or even dealing with one). The only thing I've considered is maybe down the line (probably years) creating a tool/schema that people can use to create a portable archive of spread data on their own site(s) so that eventually a collection could be built between several sources and shared possibly through .torrents. I don't see how that has anything to do with AT's fate. Edit: In fact, if AT were still around, it would be much easier to ask people in one forum versus the 6 or 7 that are being migrated to how card/spread data should be ideally be setup for a specific purpose to be anatomical.

If she doesn't want to sell the site, then it should be left alone. She's said several times now at this point she doesn't want to sell. People are being rather forceful about wanting it done their way and I only wanted to share my sentiment that I understand her decision. Personally, because I've been in her shoes, I respect her decision to want to leave things as is. It's her legacy to preserve.

myself I am like.


in the Christmas carol , scrooge boss didn't sell out and I respect him for that (story after all ).
there are others who didn't sell out who believe in their vision, like the old man from pretty woman.!!!

from respect and thanks for her work here since the beginning, if I was in those shoes I would find it hard to pass it, I would keep coming back to see how it was doing.

so I think it is best to cut it with an axe like amputed leg. (not the only option , I would support passing it on too as her wish).

Solandia,

I came back after I hard about the closure on Facebook. I was a bit shocked but my first strong reaction was "good for her!" I have always admired your dignity, dedication to your principles, and business acumen. I was somewhat surprised you hadn't decided to sell on the site but your explanation not only makes perfect sense...it reveals you as one hell of a classy sheila.

It was so lovely to meet you all those years ago. I hope that the rest of your life is filled with success, happiness and fulfilment.

So sad to see this Solandia, this forum has been a very big part of my life for the past 4 years, its helped me through some dark times and long nights and I virtually met some wonderful people here. Ive learned so much on this forum. Truly heart broken to see it come to an end but it's what you need to do.

Wishing you well Solandia, thank you for providing us with this little space to learn and grow. xx

Thank you, Solandia/Kate, for all the opportunities and wisdom I have gained due to your efforts. I am especially thankful to have edited your e-books years ago.

My life was changed for the better because of Aeclectic.

Blessings to all...
