    What!! This is too early to be an April Fools prank.
    I am very sad about this news.
    When will it be shut down?

    Ummmm.....WOW. Obviously, there is no love lost between the DLC and the DBB since it was not a pleasant parting with a buttload of us being banned...for...life.

    But they were a good source of information and I am sad all that knowledge base will be lost. It is expensive to run a bulletin board and you need great people to help manage it.
    And you have to have a thick skin and accept that people will come and go and you can't be all things to all people.

    I met some of my best friends on DBB (luckily they're all here now ). It was a huge board and a wonderful knowledge base, as Lisa said. I am sad to see what Facebook (etc.) has done to bulletin boards.

    My girls' life story is on here (and a bit on DBB). Those posts did not need to be shared with the entire Facebook world. I'm glad they were able to grow up with all of you and your doxies. It's been a privilege to have this type of forum to share our joy and sorrows.

    It is sad to see a forum with a lot of good information go away, but the reality is when facebook came along, it started a decline of members and posts on bulletin boards, not just DBB or DLC but all bulletin boards. We started seeing the decline 4 years ago.

    We've been struggling with this too for a while, thinking of ways to maintain members or grow a little more.

    Talpatalk has certainly not been helpful resolving the issues we've been having with them. They take the easy stance of wanting us to upgrade.

    Like Kim (oceangirls) mentioned, you don't necessarily want all your doxie related posts mixed with your family and friends stuff. Lets face it, not everyone is as passionate about dachshunds as we are.

    There are numerous instances where people have interfaced with twitter or Facebook and then got locked out, because twitter or Facebook changed how things worked in the back end and killed some business over night.

    Lisa and I have major concerns on safety and security when it comes to facebook, and we don't want to give out member info inadvertently for the sake of more users.

    I"m so grateful to you and Lisa, Rafi, for watching out for us.

    I wonder if we're going to have a big influx of newbies here now.

    James was saying that when one of the Toyota Truck boards closed down for a while, the other boards suddenly had a bunch of new members.

    The post didn't give a time frame, just that it would be shut down soon.

    Wow, I never thought I'd see that day. Honestly though I can't tell you the last time I was there (to the point that I can't log in over there at the moment! as I don't know my password). I've always thought of that board as more serious more information....I think of this board as chatting with friends, yet informative when needed.

    Like I said before though I don't post much here (but I do read and am checking in several times a day). The duo is now 12 and 13?? (Rocky is adopted but at the time we were told he was a year older then Clay). They live a calm life...actually Rocky lives in the closet (his choice)....he even moved from our walk in to Joey's closet. Not much is going on in our doxie world now...but oh the adventures of a 5 year old human .
