    Boom Beach will close its subforum on September 3, 2018

    I learned about the above news in the HD subforum. FYI for those who missed Drew's announcement in the BB subforum.

    Upon further reflection, I decided to post the text of his announcement and followup post because they won't be available for viewing after September 3, 2018. IMO, this part of Supercell history must be preserved if we need to learn from it.

    Hi all,

    This is an announcement to all users - three weeks from today (3rd September 2018) the Boom Beach forums will be permanently closed.

    The forums will be remain for the current week, and then will be moved to a ‘read-only’ state (on the 20th August) for the final two weeks.

    What this means for Boom Beach forum users:

    Your post count will remain on your forum account profile
    You will still be able to access other Supercell forums with your account

    You can still stay up to date with Boom Beach news and discuss anything Boom-related with other users at the following places:

    Reddit
    Facebook
    Twitter
    YouTube


    I wanted to also say thanks to everyone for the awesome contributions and discussions generated here, and I hope that these same discussions will continue at the places listed above.

    Keep up the Boom,


    Drew

    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    Hi everyone,

    Reading the comments on this thread I thought I'd address a few things that are consistently being brought up just to clear the air.

    1. This was not cost driven/influenced by others etc.

    The decision to close down the forums is my own. I want to have one place where I can post information and no-one misses out - rather than splitting it through two places - and cut down on the amount of players missing out on information. The place I am choosing to post all information/interact with the Boom Community in the same way as I have done on the forums in future is Reddit.

    2. There will still be a place for discussion - Reddit (www.reddit.com/r/BoomBeach)

    I didn't want to say just outright say this in the original post and hoped that by linking the Reddit at the top of my links, it would be clear that Reddit would be the new area for discussion. As a lot of posts seem to be focusing more on the fact that Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube are not adequate replacements for the forum (which I agree with) rather than discussing Reddit as the alternative, I thought I'd just make this as clear as possible.

    3. Backing up/archiving of old posts/knowledge

    On our end, we will not be archiving or backing up posts. I am hoping that by giving a 3 week notice period (2 of which the forum will be in read-only mode) this will give players the chance to backup any posts that they want to save.

    I hope the above points clear up any issues, and I also hope that by highlighting the fact that we will be using Reddit going forwards I will be seeing a lot of forum users there in future, and the awesome discussions you have had here can continue there.

    Thanks,

    Drew

    Let’s do it.

    Hay Day could be next, nothing against HD’s CM, but I think Darian is just a little too smart to do something so dumb.

    You have to remember, Nick is the main HD CM, and he is also the top level admin for the forums. I think that makes it less likely HD will go.

    But yet, sadly, nothing lasts forever. I think the key to the forum's survival is Team Clash of Clans. If they want to remove their presence and follow in the footsteps of Brawlstars, CR, and BB, then Hay Day will be alone like it was in 2012 when the forum was created.

    Would Supercell allocate resources to maintain a site visited daily by one thousand users or less? I hope we won't find out soon.

    BTW, there are currently 20,824 users online: 645 are viewing the HD subforum and 18,579 the CoC subforum.

    Are you sure they are "users"? At this particular moment it states "16,716 viewing CoC". But... below that, it states "There are currently 18823 users online. 55 members and 18768 guests".

    That is 55 registered users total, for all forum areas. As for the "guest", that includes all the bots (like Google Bots) ferreting out data.

    I consider "users" as people who are lurkers reading the posts in real time but don't have forum accounts. I hadn't considered that some of the "guests" may be "bots" so I stand corrected. Thank you.
