Cafe at the end of the Universe / Re: Just Chat...

Goodbye everybody, see you out there!

Dear fellow Zooites,

I'm sorry I have to tell you that this will be the last Object of the Day (from the team) on our forum… :'(

As you may have noticed, this part of the Zoo hasn’t been as busy as it used to be. We’ve seen Galaxy Zoo grow into mother project The Zooniverse, with many different Zoos to learn new things from. The many new volunteers, over a million now, have found new ways to communicate with each other and the scientists. So it seems that the golden days of this Café at the end of the Universe have come to an end.

Unfortunately, this means that we’re going to close the Galaxy Zoo Forum.

The majority of the current moderators team (Alice, Infinity and myself) and Chris as head of the ‘keepers team agreed on this decision. We want you to know that this wasn’t an easy choice. We have thought about it and talked about it for weeks. And we have come to the conclusion that after 7 years it is time to move on.

What does this mean, practically?

This is a two weeks’ notice. We want to give you some time to get used to the idea and to make sure you have read all your personal messages. You might want to share e-mail addresses with some of the other users, so you can continue to keep in touch elsewhere. So for the next two weeks you can still send personal messages.

When we shut the forum completely, we won’t take everything off. We will keep the archives online and you will still be able to access it as a read-only site. This means that it will look the same, but you won’t be able to log in, post anything new, or access your personal messages. You will still be able to read all the old threads and link to them.

If you want to keep up with The Zooniverse and its projects, you can follow the projects on Twitter and/or communicate via the discussion boards of the separate projects, otherwise known as Talk.


We hope you will understand why we feel this is the next logical step and we hope you’ll think back of this place with fond memories.

Personally, I know I will. It’s been a pleasure moderating it until the end. This site has brought me a lot of fun and knowledge and many unforgettable experiences with friends I otherwise would never have met. I consider these people family and meeting them has enriched my life. We made Pea Soup, planned trips together and created the Galaxy Font. I will be forever grateful for having found this place and I sincerely want to thank everybody on here who has contributed to what made this forum such a lovely one.

So long and thanks for all the fish!

Hanny and the team. :)

I'd have to check the vid at that time to be sure, but I think I have an idea what you're talking about...

And with Annie, nothing's unexpected. ;)

Liz, I admire how you - after 7 years - are still so dedicated in posting all of these. Especially with not many people around these days... :)
:)  Yes well 7 years boggles the mind a bit.  Asteroids are fun to post. The new asteroid zoo is also fun. I for one have learned a great deal here on the zoo forum. As for not many people around these days .....With all the new zoo's it is not surprising. I do believe they come often an check out this wonderful Archive though. ;)

It is a wonderful archive indeed. A weird and wonderful one. ;)

Well, I don't think, that it is time to lock this topic (actually it should never be locked)

Well we'll be the judge of that :P ;)

But no, this:

It might be an idea to start a separate Zooniverse thread, for topics relating to Zooniverse jobs etc., as this thread was just for the Chicago Team Meeting, which finished some time ago, so could possibly be locked.

is never a reason for a lock. Just FYI. :)
