It would be a pity to lose this forum, however if it might happen I do understand.
Most of the time it's awfully quiet here and not much gets posted.

It would be a shame to loose the forum, especially the time I put into it.

Is there a reason to take the forum down, other than low interest and activity?
I can remember that when I joined LeftyBassist.com a few years back it was also a forum where every once in a while a couple of posts were made here and there, but over the years it got busier and busier.

There is that, and the costs, although that's not really that much.
Mostly I wanted to find out if there is still an interest.

Well if you're thinking of shutting it down, it would be nice to offer an alternative. A Facebook group, Slack channel, whatever...

Ok, I just renewed the contracts for this site for another two years, so we're good for a while  :db:

I am also guilty of neglecting this forum but I like the idea of as much exposure online for lefty bassists. Another possibility would be to expand the site and open it up to guitarists or even all musicians in general to get it populated but retain the existing section for lefties. I think it's been very well done.

Not a bad idea, but then the domainname should be changed.
And indeed, as much publicity for lefties as possible :)
