Musings on the closing of Remnants

If you are a member of Ravelry, you know by now that the infamous forum Remnants has been retired for good. You can read, if you haven’t by now, Casey’s poignant announcement here. The loss of the Remnants forum makes me feel kind of sad, to be honest. I know and understand why it had to be this way, and I support the very tough decision TPTB had to make. But while Remnants had become this huge and unwieldy thing, it was also the kind of thing that was unique to Ravelry. At least it felt that way. I know in my heart of hearts that Ravelry itself, what Ravelry really IS, is not going to change that much, if at all. Already at least one group has sprung up to take its place. And even though I didn’t even spend a lot of time posting there, I did spend an inordinate amount of time reading it. I am really going to miss it. For realz.

  1. Have to admit I’m glad to see it go. Lately it seems to be one train wreck/TMI/random nonsense after another. I was always stunned at the things that people would post there – or that they would share it anywhere, for that matter!
