I am getting a bit bored with vampgirl.com. I've not updated it in a long while now as I ran out of space and have had issues with hosts and whatnot... I'm thinking I *will* update the whole lot (i suppose) in the summer when I have some free time and then leave it as a complete piece - a finished project.

I have a LOT of members on the forum - and I don't want to give that up or let them down, but after a big haul when I get round to it I don't think I want to update the site much any longer... It really only filled a gap in my life for a few years (as my closest friends will understand the reasons why) and now I have a lot of college/theatre on the go and a fresh new start ahead of me and I don't want to be wasting time on teh interweb with page editing, promoing, site-whoring and petty bitching. I've never done the petty bitching (although I've had to defend myself unnecessarily on occasion), but keeping a big site going/updated used to take up a LOT of my time and I haven't got the time, inclination or enthusiasm anymore...

I have real life things and a happy present/future to enjoy and don't want to lose myself to a monitor.

Don't panic - I'm not giving up LJ, or the forums - I'm just being open and honest about the feelings/general apathy I have for the actual upkeep of the dotcom... Ok, so a big overhaul is in order and it will be done, but I thought I'd let you know and ask your opinion on the matter.

Should I make it a 'finished' site for academic information and whatnot, or restart the monthly updates of books/movies and stuff? Or should I keep the monthly book/movie stuff for the forum instead??

Quite honestly, I'd be lost without my moderators - they do a damn fine job and I promise I won't let you guys down - it's only the actual future of the site that hangs in the balance here...

Ideas? Anyone?

I think you should give it a jolly good spring clean, and leave it as a finished piece. I certainly wouldn't bother with regular updates because I think that once people have joined the forum, they rarely check back to the actual site (I know I haven't done in years!), so it would be more productive as a resource. As the anonymous poster said, once it's finished it's not untouchable, and sporadic updates wouldn't do any harm, if one has something worth putting up.
