Hello Pageant Fans,
It is with mixed emotions that I'm informing you that I will be shutting down this board.
When I created this board it was after a week or so absence from the old NY board, and since no one stepped up, I figured I would. Here we are 8 months later with THREE NY boards, and as mentioned months ago, if I didn't feel my board was needed, I would shut it down. So here I am.
I LOVE the pictures and information and support this board offers, which is why I've kept it around so long, but it is tiring. Trying to make everyone happy is a full time job with no end in sight, that's for sure. I wanted people's honest opinions to be heard, but with dignity for those mentioned, and apparently you can't have both.
I know I have turned posters away because I called them out for being hypocrites, and I'm not sorry for it, but I am sorry if feelings were hurt. I don't know if they are responsible for the newest board, but whoever is moderating I wish them the best of luck, and lots of patience and maturity. Seeing the IP addresses of posters is a lot of power, and with it comes the responsibility to do what's right. I'm not claiming that I have always done the right thing, but as I close down this board which has become a huge hobby of mine, I feel it necessary to try to help those continuing their board endeavors.
It's lame to admit, but it's tough to let go, as this board was the first after the old board shut down, but it's petty and stupid to continue this board for that reason alone. I have plenty of things to focus on in my life, and honestly the drama behind these boards can't be one of them any more.
I wish both boards, and all moderators the best of luck with their boards. Thanks to all for the positivity, pictures, and support. I hope you find a nice new home with one of the other NY boards!
