SSE has announced that on Sept 1, 2016 they will be shutting down their forums.
Most of the older members had quit posting there already, and new material was getting very scarce.

That's sad!

Can we at premies do anything to fill the gap?

Four or five years ago, their fora were fairly active.
It has been a steady decline in activity.
Lately, if I go browse there, there is seldom any fresh postings.

Many of the older members had drifted away.  Quit posting.
They are still active seed saving, just not much presence on the boards.
 
That new kid is a freak. Show him this tiny ad:
