    Thumbs Up Petition to Save the Forums

    What can we do to save the forums? If we cant convince SuperCell to do it then what about a third party take it over?

    Nothing stops a third party from continuing an unofficial forum. Happened when the Boom Beach forums closed. An independent party created an new discussion site, even copied over pertinent discussions, all with Supercell's knowledge and blessing.

    But, of course they will not turn the physical servers over to someone else. A third party has to build, and manage that site. Nor would it be an official site, with Supercell's presence.

    Basically a fan made forum. This means no Darian or any SC employee in there. It defeats the purpose of community dev connect.

    Two forumites ran the experiment twice when Team Clash Royale and Team Boom Beach announced the closure of their subforums here. TheBlastoise and Fritznelly did an awesome job of getting CommunityRoyale and BoomBeachForum up and running so forumites had ample time to migrate there before the CR and BB subforums were closed by Supercell.

    IIRC,
    CommunityRoyale and BoomBeachForum existed for about a year or two before TheBlastoise and Fritznelly closed them due to low traffic.

    Good luck to the forumites who are thinking about creating fan made forums.

    Dedicating "The Soft Goodbye" to the Supercell forums and the people who made it an awesome community, the brightest star in the evening sky.

    Thanks for moving this thread to a quiet corner where much fewer people will ever notice it.
