I am closing down this community as of today, 3/16/09. We have not received any secret topics in weeks, our comment count is down and we are not bringing in any new members. I will not delete the community, so you can continue posting to the secret topics that are already up if you need to get something off your chest. Comments to this will be screened as I am sure we will get snarked.

If things seem to pick up at any point in the future, we will consider re-opening. I don't understand why we didn't have more participation, considering the original post secret community only posts maybe once a month IF you're lucky, but I guess have fun over there.

I think it's just a matter of inertia. People just had a hard time switching over to this community and getting started because it takes energy and effort *shrugs*

Thank you so much for trying, though. I, for one, have appreciated it.

Huh. I didn't see this coming, and I have to say it's too bad. I looked forward to the weekend secrets/question asking posts, even if there wasn't more content during the week.

Ah, well.

Well, I know you've probably tried to keep things going, but from all I see on the front page is "ask anything" or "post anything", which is kind of lame. There should have been more questions that were asked, but I DO understand that people needed to participate more in coming up with questions/subject matter.
Hopefully this community is able to re-open, because it was a very good community.

When the community first started we had a different secret topic every day and Mondays were picture secret post day. But no one participated and the mods and I couldn't think of a new secret topic on our own for every day so we cut it back. We pleaded with the community several times to help submit topics, but they didn't.

So why throw a fit and close this place? Is it all about your ego? OK, so you were unhappy that it's quiet, well if it really is about the community and not your ego you would offer this place to another mod who was ok with quiet. I wonder, was the ego why the community went quiet, as opposed to just being the reason it was closed?

No, its about literally not being able to think up secret topics anymore despite people always saying they wanted secret topic questions and not just 'Anything' posts. It's not throwing a fit, it's because it does take work to run a community and if no one is going to participate then what's the point?

I'm not sure why I'm responding to you since you were very rude in your questions, but I just want people to know that I am still watching this community and will respond to any questions and/or suggestions.
