[identity profile] matinee-idyll.livejournal.com posting in [community profile] boy_touching
Greetings, all.

In June last year, I posted an announcement that I was no longer able to be the owner and admin of this group, and as the moderators no longer seem to be active, this has left [livejournal.com profile] boy_touching at sea without a captain. I sent a call-out inviting any members of the community to volunteer to take over.

I did not receive any messages or comments with genuine offers to transfer ownership, and so, it's my sad duty to say that I have no choice but to close BT. If someone would really like to take over as admin at this point, please contact me ASAP, but after so long, I think it's time to get the hint.

It was a pleasure to take over ownership of BT long ago and to get to know so many of you. It's my opinion that the needs and interests of the community have, over time, grown beyond what LJ can provide. The tag limit severely crippled the search and archive functions of the community, and as other social media platforms have become increasingly more popular (eg. Tumblr), the numbers on LJ have dwindled. But over the years, we've put together quite the collection of man-love here, still impressive in its thoroughness and variety compared to many other sites with the same. All these contributions came from you. So thanks for sharing, not just the BT but also in the comments. I know a lot of firm friendships grew from this community and i'm proud to have been there in any capacity for all that.

Thanks again. It's been great.

I have sent you a message. :)

And thanks for maintaining and moderating this great community! I have had much fun here and have used it as a source for several projects through the years. Besides finding several new fandoms here. That might be the best part. <3

Oh man, are you closing the whole comm down/purging all the great content? That will crush me - I still check this comm all the time and will hate losing all the memories.

I've loved this comm for so many years and it will be a blow to see it fold. If I had any HTML skills, I'd really consider taking over but I'm PC illiterate in that area. Either way, thanks for all the great BT times.

Thank you for running this comm! I unfortunately have neither the experience nor the time to act as admin/mod, but I've loved seeing the posts here and it will be very sad to see this comm close down.
