And another BBC messageboard bites the dust

The BBC has today announced that the GCSE Bitesize messagevoard is to close.

The Bitesize messageboards will close permanently at 16:00 BST on Wednesday 24th July 2013.

We understand this will be disappointing news.

The Bitesize hosts will not be able to answer specific questions about the closure.

We want to thank you for being part of such a fun, knowledgeable and helpful community. We wish you the best of luck with your studies and exams.

It will be interesting to see if this closure has the same high media profile that the closure of the Archers board did earlier in the year. Last month I saw Nigel Smith talking about the experience of being the person behind that Archers messageboard closure. Presumably some poor soul in the Bitesize team is about to be on the receiving end of a similar dose of angst.
