Farewell to the Lulu Forums
I’ve got an announcement today that brings me no pleasure so I won’t beat around the bush: After December 31, 2019, we’ll be closing the Lulu Forums.
We can’t thank you enough for all the insights, conversations and support you’ve given to existing and aspiring authors.
From now until the end of the month, the Forums will remain open for users to post and comment. After December 31, 2019, they’ll shift to a ‘view only’ state so old posts can be seen, but new ones will not be available. Nor will comments.
Over the next 90 days (so the first part of 2020), you’ll see some exciting and major changes to the Lulu platform. The kinds of things we have talked about and hinted at for years now. Many of your suggestions, coupled with hours of development work on Lulu, are finally coming to fruition.
It was a tough decision, but we know that numerous other places exist where writers can congregate online. Lulu’s best investment is continuing to improve the platform and the overall publishing and buying experiences for our customers.
The Forums will remain open until December 31st and will remain visible until we finalize our plans to phase out the user Forum entirely. After that, Lulu will no longer host a user Forum. As always, you can engage with our Customer Voice team through email, chat, and phone for your Lulu inquiries.
Thank you again for those who so enthusiastically supported the Lulu Forums over the years.
