My favourite place for many years, where I got to learn a lot of stuff, and meet some great people (among them my best friend, Sheila) is saying goodbye… It was a hard decision to make, but we needed to move on. Thank you Sheila, Lynn, and Terry! The forum will close its doors tomorrow, April 1st, 2016, and it’s not a lie. Please find hereunder, our letter to the members:
After a lot of thought, and discussion, the Staff has agreed that it is time for ChristianBaleFans.com to close its doors.
When the Forum was created over eight years ago, facebook, tumblr, and other social media were still in the early stages. Our Forum became the place where Baleheads could gather and share their love and respect for the greatest actor in the world, Christian Bale. For many members, the Forum became a safe place – a home away from home. They not only shared information about Christian Bale, but also shared their personal works of fan art, fan literature, and photography as well. Members also gathered to share their dreams, their worries, and their hopes.
As we move deeper into the 21st century, Facebook, tumblr, Instagram, and countless other blogs reign supreme, and offer everything that Christian Bale fans desire. The forum construct has outlived its time. We accept that fact, without regrets, because for many years this has been a labor of love for all of us, and we will always remain very proud of what we accomplished here.
April 1, 2016 will be the last day that we open our doors. We hope that, in the meantime, you will stop by and visit the old place one more time. Please rest assured, dear Members, that you can still get your “Bale fix” at Baleheads Blog, and the Facebook page that is attached to it.
We love you. We will never forget you. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your love and support. Be well always.
