New ABBA Chat Forum

I think we've all heard the sad news that the abba4ever chat forum will be closing down permanently in early October after 8 years of service to the ABBA fan community.

There are a few Facebook pages and groups that are dedicated to ABBA, but Facebook isn't quite the same as a forum, as many would agree.

Many in the fan community enjoy a Forum environment - I personally feel that a Forum is much more organised and informative than a Facebook group - and I believe the community needs a Forum.

I had considered starting a forum a few years ago - but realised that only one worldwide forum was really needed - and we already had abba4ever.
But now, with the closure of abba4ever, I have decided to go ahead and create a new forum.

My new ABBA forum is called ABBAChat :)

It can be found here:

www.abbachat.com

It is in the very early stages of development - but it is fully functional and ready for members.

If you are a member of abb4ever please feel free to copy your old posts from there and add to ABBAChat - but please also include the original date of your post on abba4ever so it's easier to work out timelines for events etc.

So come on over and check it out - if you like what you see, sign up, start posting, make suggestions and help it to grow !

And last, but not least, share the news ! :)

  5. Hi, Roxanne. I just found your forum by Googling "ABBA Forums" after finding out that the abba4ever forum has been shut down. I registered with abbachat and rceived a confirmation email, but couldn't log in. Why can't I log in?

  6. I am sorry you guys have been having an issue and I am not sure why.
    I have changed the registration setting so if you are still unable to log in or post, please try registering one more time. Hopefully this will solve any issue.
