However, I believe the community can surge back to what it once was. Maybe not immediately, but some how, some where, it can.
Over the past few months, there has been the occasional murmur and discussion about opening a new forum--one dedicated to a broader topic than just Mai-HiME. What exactly this new topic might be is still up in the air.
I've discussed potentially opening a forum dedicated to yuri original/fan fiction with a few members. Others have suggested creating a general yuri anime forum.
I am your admin, but I would never dream of forcing the community to go somewhere that they had no input on and nothing invested in. More than anything, I want to provide a way for us all to stay together as a community even as the HiME fandom is passing on.
So I leave this to you, dear MUnchkins:
If a new forum were to be created--one designed to reach out to a greater community than just Mai-HiME--what would you want that forum to be? What would you want to see there?
