Dragonlance Forums Closing July 25th

Dear friends,

Nearly twenty years ago, the Dragonlance Forums were created to be an online hub of Dragonlance discussion. I have been very proud of the work we have done here.

All good things, though, must come to an end. There are several reasons....

a. No new posts in Novels since March. No new posts in gaming since May. In other words, next to no traffic.

b. Forums are a thing of the past, with a few exceptions (such as the Piazza!). People don't go somewhere looking for content. They want content to come to them.

c. The DL forums are a resource hog. I would have to get much more expensive hosting to keep them online, and that won't come cheap.

d. Maintenance. Honestly, vBulletin is a PITA. There's a major upgrade coming. I don't have the knowledge to tackle this. My son Travis does, but he's busy enough.

e. Currently, the forums are being hosted on a computer in my living room. This computer was at Travis' house, but he's trying to cut down expenses, so the computer came here to get the internet experience they need.

So while I would hate to see the forums go, I have come to realize that what I worked to create was really a community. That community has migrated over to Facebook to the Dragonlance Fandom group, and is something like 7,000 - 8,000 members strong.

With all of that being said, the Dragonlance Forums will close on Sunday, July 25th.

I wanted to say a huge thank you to all the moderators, authors, game designers, and contributors throughout the years.

And as Stan Lee would say...

"Face front, True Believers!"

  • New Dragonlance coming?

    Hi, everyone, and happy new year.

    Just saw this, and rushed to Facebook and here to check for additional info, but I can't find any more details, beyond that it's book and D&D-related. which kind of suits everything happening since the lawsuit was dismissed without prejudice a couple of weeks ago (no pun intended). Do we have something more specific or a timeline in mind?

    Long Live the Lance!

    I can't find anything official, either. Not sure if the person who made the post has inside sources or is just speculating. I suppose we'll find out sooner or later.

      Right now, the only thing we have is a post from Margaret, telling us to be patient over the next comingweeks.
