Dear all

I am sorry to let you know that for personal, medical, and other reasons this message board will stop operating at some point in the next couple of months. I'm not sure exactly when, but it is possible it may just disappear overnight. Please cancel any contributions that are monthly immediately, and please make no more individual contributions.

I'd like to express my extreme thanks to all who have been contributors and supporters over the years. I sincerely hope you all find a newer, better place to join and participate. Many have said that there are much better ways to share our love of the R's than this style of message board now. Perhaps someone could start a thread of alternate online QPR supporter places, and many of us could then join the most favoured one.

Apologies and thanks again. You R's

Drew

Drew, I'm so sorry to hear this. The dotorg has been part of my QPR life since the mid 90s and it's very sad to see it go. Thank you for all you've done and I hope you are able to overcome the difficulties you mention.

Whatever your reasons, I"d like to say a HUGE THANK YOU for the service you have given this site over the years. This site has been a never-ending source of valuable information, views, humour, discussion and debate all the time I have been here and you have set it up and kept it thriving through the highs and lows during a long tenure.

You have brought R"s together around the world and freely given us so many QPR and non-QPR related talking points to chew over and bond us together.

I wish you all the best for the future.

Drew, so sorry to hear this. The dotorg has been an important part of my supporting QPR for more years than I can recall, and it’s so sad to see it go. Thank you for all your efforts to keep the forum going. I wish you all the best in tackling the difficulties you are facing.

Gutted, not sure I have the heart to join another board.

Bizarrely 15 years to the day since I signed up, seems like yesterday.

Thank you so much for all you have done, this board has massively enhanced my QPR experience.

I wish Drew and all members all the best in all your future endeavours.

Drew, I'm so sorry to hear your news and I wish you all the best for the future.

This board has been an important part of my life since leaving Blighty for West Oz back in 2007 and I'm pretty sure I won't find a better or more cultured message board than the dot.org.

Thank you for the years of pleasure that I have derived from reading and contributing to the qprdot.org board. I have enjoyed it and as far as I am concerned, the discussion has been civilised and often fun. My thanks and very best wishes to you and the many dotorgers. Kernowhoop.

Hey Drew,

I haven't been round these parts for a couple of years but heard this news today and just wanted to thank you for the effort over all this time. This site has kept us all informed and in touch with the QPR community for a couple of decades. And it's been great fun along the way too.

Really appreciate your time and effort and hope everything's good for you away from QPR and the message board.

I am so sorry to read this. Was never much of a poster, but I have read the site daily for over a decade now, and it was one of the things that kept me tied to home. Thank you very much.

Wow, what a sad day.

Like quite a few others, this board has been a constant in my life for over over two decades, and is the only place where I actually post anything on social media. I know there are other QPR boards, but this was always the best in my eyes.

Thanks for all the time and effort you've put into this over the years, Drew. I wish you all the best for the future.
