knitty guestbook...RIP

It's been a great way to get feedback, but lately we're deleting more spam in the knitty guestbook than we're getting comments. Not very productive.

So I've closed it. Kind, sweet KnittySteph, who has been answering questions there for a long while [more than a year, I think!] has moved her services to the Knitty Coffeeshop. Steph will be helping people find their way on to the boards, where our three moderators -- Zibbibboisgood, Monkeemaven and Habsgirl -- continue to take excellent care of all our Coffeeshop patrons. It also means I can devote undivided reader relation energy to the Coffeeshop, which is what I should be doing.

I'll be setting up a suggestion box for people to leave comments, so you'll still have an outlet if you want to yell at me. But don't [constructive criticism is always welcome, of course]. The coolest thing about the Knittyboards is that everyone there really doesn't want crap and crankiness along with their online experience, so it's quite a happy place.

Haven't visited? Take a peek. They really are nice over there.
