Word from Christmas.com

I got an email from the admin address of Christmas.com. They apparently don't believe folks are very upset. Well, since when have they ever listened to site users anyway?

Part of me wants to say "let them rot". But I know how much that site meant to some of you. I think you should let them know directly how you feel.

If you all want to email them, their address is: globala@fastmail.co.uk.

Jeff

Well, I certainly understand where they are coming from. For years Christmas.com had the ONLY Christmas forum online. I tried for years to start one and the technology just wasn't quite there for us po folks. Christmas.com had the money and thus the technology. For many, many people the Christmas.com forum was an introduction to forums altogether.

That means many of those good Christmas-loving folks lost more than just a place to talk Christmas. They had some long-term relationships that were shut down in a blink of an eye. There is some genuine mourning going on.

But you're right. We need to "connect" these Christmas communities and I'm trying to do my part. We'll get them together as long as other webmasters will cooperate and not see it as a means of competing with each other. Nobody makes money off of forums. Nobody. They are expensive to run, they use lots of time and resources but they are absolutely VITAL to connecting with our site users and keeping them connected. Christmas.com -- meaning the new owners -- had better get their stuff together because the domain has had a reputation for years of neglecting their site users. Unplugging the forums is almost unforgivable in some eyes. You can't do that to your site users without it costing you.

I hope we get ALL former Christmas.com users here and I hope they go to every Christmas forum out there. It's a big Christmas community and there's a lot of spirit to be had.

Jeff

It's business, plain and simple...We got lucky!!! Think about those poor families whose bread winner loses his job due to "business". I don't fault them for wanting to make a profit...I guess I fault them for not at least announcing the change, giving us the chance to make other arrangements. We all work for companies whose goal is to make a profit and that profit is what puts food on our tables. The folks at Bronners make a profit but they do so never losing sight of the reason for the season and that they offer some happiness to people in the process...I guess it's the attitude that goes with the making of a profit that is the rub.

I wish them well, those new owners of Christmas.com. Perhaps they will realize what they've got and expand what they are offering and perhaps they won't. But for a time, about three years, the site was a daily part of my life. I'll miss it but the spirit of Christmas will prevail!

Jay
