The Colbert Nation Forum is Shutting Down.

After many years we have decided to shut down The Daily Show/Colbert Nation Forums. In the next few weeks the message boards and conversations contained within these boards will no longer be available. As of now, we are no longer accepting new members to the community. We invite you to share your thoughts about the show on The Daily Show’s/Colbert Report’s Facebook page . You can also join us and other fans of The Daily Show/The Colbert Report on Twitter and Google+.

                                                — Colbert Nation Forum.

    Hm, I haven’t been an active member there in a long time, but that’s how I first “met” other Colbert fans and got a ticket to my first taping (another forum member had an extra). Does anyone know why it is shutting down?

      @Caroline

      No official reason has yet been issued, but if there are any further announcements or news I will be sure to keep you updated.

    Hi everyone! I’ve been away for awhile, but seeing the note about this in my email box pulled me right back. I realize that CNF must have been hard to maintain from a technical standpoint, etc., but I am sad to hear of its demise. Like @Caroline, I felt that I made friends there. I think what made CNF stand out, for better, or sometimes worse (?), was the more personal nature of the posts. I’m wondering whether something can be done here, on CNH, to accomodate a perceived need for that, if there is one. Of course I’m sure CNH is also a handful to maintain, and here I am suggesting even more work. But would CNH benefit from having a more personal section (within certain guidelines, of course)?
    By the way, long time no see — I’ve missed taking part here over the last few weeks!

      @susan209

      I have been mulling over the idea of introducing a more personal section for members to interact with one another within the guidelines of the site, for some time now. In lieu of this sad news, I will talk it over with the other Hub Staff members and see if we can come up with something that is suitable and not too much of a burden to maintain.

    I’m sorry to hear that. I’ve only ben a member a couple of weeks, but have enjoyed it.

    I’m a little sad to see the CN forum go, but it makes sense. The nature of online interaction has changed a lot since the forum was initially created. The last couple of times I looked in on it, there didn’t seem to be a lot of activity.

    I know that we’ve all been complaining about the platform software and Jimmy, the guy who maintains it has been asking for new software to no avail. There hasn’t been a lot of activity in there since, oh I’d say since the rally. There was also that awful spamming incident at the TDS forum, that’s part of the reason why traffic has been slow, I think.
    I’m really sad to see it go. As for having a forum area in here, that could be good, but there is a forum called rogue nation where some of the fans who like the forum format but for whatever reason don’t like the CN forum, hang out. Just FYI. I think we’ll be good, I remember how sad everyone was when No Fact Zone was gone, but look here we are!

      Do you have the link to Rogue Nation? I have heard of, but never been able to find it.

        Here is the link:http://roguenation.hostingdelivered.com/index.php

        llama, rouge was created as a back up when the board migrated from colboard.com. The members there are all active members of CN boards. Rogue has been useful several times when the CN boards were down.

        The Rogue Nation was created 9/1/2010 and modded by the people who have been members of the Colbert Nation since it started (a.k.a. the ColVets). It’s a great place to continue the same sort of discussions you had on The Colbert Nation’s forum but then with much better board software and no sudden surprises. Like moving the entire board to new (and worse) software or shutting down the entire thing. We are of the opinion that the facebook page for the Colbert Report, even though it serves a purpose, does not really allow for a community driven conversation. Rogue Nation is a great way of getting to know other fans and allow you to discuss other topics of interest to fans of the show.

    Might wanna ask Colberts broneys, I think they have the answer. They changed the site sight after I tried registering I think. Well done guys. Just a guess. For those who don’t what I’m talking about, this post isn’t intended for you. No offense…

      @tesa
      Never mind, the time it happened doesn’t match up. But damn, bad timing for me.

  • Fangirl 40

    I remember being on the colbertnation forum a few years ago I think it might have been either last year or somewhere I went on and thats when I noticed it was closed because what I saw on there was they were victims of spam or something and then a year later I read that you had to wait a couple days or weeks or something and then you can get into the Colbert Nation Forum.

    I feel more at home at the Hub than in the Forums, but they were still great for eye candy and other goodies, so I’m also sad to see them go. They were a good respite from time to time.
