I have known this was coming for some time but now that it is happening it creates a weird dynamic. There is no place to discuss the Runaways on line; they don't want you posting about the Runaways on Joan's board and even if you did it is so strictly moderated for content that apparently nothing other than glib flattery is permitted.
It is more difficult than you realize to maintain a board. I created a Jett/Runaways board some years ago and closed it because I didn't have the time to moderate it day and night. It is not easy and I know Christy and Hawk put a lot of work into this board and to their credit allowed free discussion to develop regardless of opinion. Too bad that is over but I totally understand why they are doing it. If anybody else wants to do a board don't jump into it unless you are committed to taking care of it; it's harder than it looks!

Im glad its been here and to have been part of it...♥x♥
Hawkeye, I would have posted this as a new post but can't find the means to do so. Maybe your have changed it where new topics are not allowed so I will do it here. I would like to personally thank you for all your effort and time you have sacrificed for The Runaways. This board can take a lot of time, effort and a lot of aggravation at times I'm sure. I want you to know that I recognize what you have done and am so very grateful. I want to thank the fans that have come here. I can't tell you how much we love you all. I wish you all the beautiful things in life and THANK YOU AGAIN for hanging in there all these years. Much love and respect, Cherie Currie

I follow this board since 2006 (as far I remember), and finally open an account in 2008 when the beautiful website of The Runaways made by Christy, changed by the current site (that one in flash). That day was very sad to me, because the Christy s site was awesome, full of passion and love ... and I did open my account here to give thanks for all the effort and love, making the site and running the board. This board is a little piece of that awesome site, and of course, the members and admin staff too also band members (how cool, even The Runaways band members are active users here), making this place a very special and awesome corner to share and discuss interesting info.
It s really sad , this is the end ...
I would like to express my gratitude to admin staff, Christy, Hawkeye, for all the time, effort and patience with us, thanks to the members of the board, the fans, beautiful people, touched by the magic of The Runaways, and of course thanks to The Runaways, I love all the band members, (Sandy is my prefer ), but I love all, thanks for the legacy girls, well done!
I wish the best of luck in the future projects !!!!
