The original idea was to provide a place where users of my themes could help each other out if needed, but I think it was a bit premature to setup a forum before having an active community.
The main reason I setup the forum was because there wasn't any better alternative at the time. Luckily that's changed with the launch of the official Beans forum, which is one of the nicest BBPress implementations I've seen yet.
So as of today, the ThemeButler forums will be closing down. I won't be keeping an archive public, as there aren't any posts worth keeping. If you have a question about any of the themes on ThemeButler.com, feel free to get in touch via the sites contact form.
Otherwise, for anything else that is Beans related, be sure to pop over to the official forums and introduce yourself. You'll find a growing community of Beans converts and Thierry is always super helpful.
All of that said, I'm not ruling out adding the forum back if the need ever arises in the future. For now though it's not being used enough to warrant the maintenance required. It'll also give the awesome team at Flarum time to get it nice and stable and integrated with WordPress (which is on the roadmap).
