The Triond Forum started out as a place to share knowledge and ideas about publishing online, and as a resource for the benefit of the Triond community. It was our long time policy to keep it free of moderation in order to enable true and direct conversation, but this inherent characteristic of the forum is also what brought its demise.
Somewhere along the way the Forum started to slowly drift away from its original role as a helpful, unbiased resource for writers, and became more of a distraction than anything else. We made a short attempt at moderation, in order to try and tilt the forum back in the right direction, but it was not received well, so we’ve reverted the forum back to its no-moderation status. And since then, it has been causing more trouble than being helpful in any way.
We actually see this as a positive stage in the evolution of the Triond community. We think that more energy can be focused now on creating fresh, unique and original content to be published on our sites, and less energy will be spent sifting through the forum pages, trying to make sense of the rubble.
We hope you share our positive feelings on this matter, and we know that either way, you’ll let us know by commenting here 😉 .
And as always, Happy Publishing!
