I can safely say now that it's not closing any time soon. But we did consider it big time and it's still not off the table completely. We're willing to try to keep it going, but in reality, no matter what we do as leaders, a team depends on its members!!
We're hoping more members will visit more often and post more often!

I'm not sure why I didn't see this post before now. I hope you don't close the team! I don't get in here everyday but I've been trying my best to get on every couple of days recently. I originally joined the team because I liked horror movies and I knew Kelly. I've made many friends here and would be really sad to see the team close. I know from leading another team how hard it can be to get new people interested in getting involved with the team. I also know what it's like to get little to no response to a post.

I don't think I have the time to help out with team leader duties but I will try harder to respond to any new posts. I know even before Kelly passed away the team had been struggling. So many people join for a while and then they leave.

Thank you to all of the leaders for all that you do!!

I am on again and off again on SP but I do enjoy seeing the posting in this team. The Horror team was one of the first teams I joined when I initially joined SP back in '07. I have known Melissa since I joined and Kelley for a long time as well as Anne. I was so sad to hear about Kelley passing...

I can't honestly take on the responsibility of leadership, but with the postings, I will jump in and reply. I enjoy the conversation and anything horror is spot on for me!

Thanks for re-invigorating the team!!

Thank you all for the responses.

I'm looking for my inner athlete, but I'm afraid I may have eaten her. If I'm very quiet I can hear her screams of terror.

I will commit to posting at least weekly - I mean more than the general post at the top of the team entry.
It's good team. I hope it does not shut down.

I think it's the best team, too!

What if you were simply more devoted to loving your self?

I love this team. It's the best team I have on here because there are so many long-time members. I have other teams on here where people only post once or twice a year. Unfortunately, I think it's just the nature of this site because so many people come an go. I know it's probably frustrating for you guys but I think it's just the norm. I read all the posts but don't always respond. I hope you guys can keep it going.

I appreciate the hard work you put in here, I really love the team. I always come by, even if I don't always comment on a post. Wish I could help lead, but I have other teams I lead that need the attentions as well.

I will step up to posting daily, something related to horroe and sci/fi. I can't guarantee it will be early morning because my work schedule varues daily. I hope that will be alright. I love this group and don't want to see it diminish and disappear.

Now I feel guilty for trolling instead of participating. Truth be told, I donít express myself very well, and I have been here and gone too often, and I figure any friends I have made are kind of fed up with me. I donít want leadership, but I promise to try harder to answer posts. I do know how it feels when you post things and there is little answer (Facebook and Twitter)

Hello horror fans!

Due to the a decline in team interest and participation, your current team leaders have been working behind the scenes to save the team from dissolving. We know there are a few of you that comment and come by regularly and we are so honored your spend your time with us. We know that no one has a lot of time on their hands these days. We also know that once Kelly passed, it's difficult for you to come in and take a seat. It's difficult for us, too.

We've tossed around ideas that might increase traffic here. We are at a loss as to what to do to keep members coming in. Our daily posts get little to no response. While we truly appreciate everyone who checks in regularly, we wonder if we should close the team and just let it be or is there someone out there that would love to have a go at it? It's frustrating to take the time to make a post and get little to no response.

It's so sad for the team leaders to see the team so quiet. We know that with new technologies, new social media, limited time, etc. have impacted the rate of participation. We'd love to hear from you, our beloved horror fans, as to what you would be willing to do to keep the ball rolling.

Anyone up to stepping up into a leadership position? Some of our current leaders are bit burned out. Anyone up to posting daily and taking the wheel here? Or just participating daily? New enthusiasm might breathe new life into this old corpse!

Any feedback would be appreciated!
