Have just come on here after discovering am.com's forum has shut down. I was a member on there almost from the start. I am stunned and shocked this decision has been taken. Maybe I will be able to follow Andy on here. I will have to wait and see if I can find my way around.

Hi! Pam so, so glad that you are here, Pam & I have had some great conversations well into the night...............WELCOME!!! clap

Shocked to see that am.com has closed, I was on there this morning to do my ftm and just popped in this now and a black screen showed up to say that the forum is closed! For a second I thought something was wrong with my laptop then thought is this some kind of joke, but obviously it's not. I will miss it big time I have been going on there since 2008.
I am very disappointed and sad and I just really hope it was not through the insensitive person who posted that video clip. So very very sad.

Shows like 8 out 10 cats take the piss out of everyone, that is what the art of comedy is all about.  No-one is above the comedian in the food chain, putting everyone else in their place assuages their own massively inflated egos! It is a shame if a row coming from that would cause such an uproar, although I have never seen the clip to be honest.

Anyone have a link out of curiosity?

Anything that would impact on sponsors (or potential sponsors as we know Andy wouldn't mind more!) is not going to last, and if the forum became too negative or a battle-ground, you can understand why it would be pulled.  For his management company Andy's image would come before an internet forum....

Agree with scotsgeek28... everyone gets taken the piss out of on those shows regardless of whether they deserve it. I'm sure Andy would have laughed.

Surprised that caused an uproar.

Well the only good thing is that we can now be one big Andy supporters family, and no more "rival" forums competing against each other.

But the fact the forum had to be pulled doesn't look good for Andy's image.

Thanks for the welcome Mark. I think the way it has been handled is very disturbing after all that was the forum attached to Andy's website - not good. I can't imagine who they have been talking advice from. I'm not going to try and find my way around on here today as Andy will be playing soon and I want to concentrate on that.

I assume this has a lot to do with 19 Entertainment with minimal input from Andy.

They probably felt that the amount of fan interaction on Facebook was so much more than the forum, it wasn't worth the hassle.
