At least once a month I will shut down the forum so I can delete all the useless posts without any new useless posts being posted. This will usually happen on Sundays or Saturdays. Sometimes the forum will also be shut down so I can change some big things on the forum like the background, new categories I don't want posts in, and other things. When the forum does shut down I will try to get it back up as soon as possible. I will try to tell everyone a day before the actual shut down starts and on the monthly newsletter. If you do not get the newsletter I suggest you do so you will know when the forum will be shut down. Sometimes I will have bigger shut downs that last a week so I can do more work to the forum. Sometimes I will shut down the forum without warning but I don't want to do this often.
