: Morning WilSon Blvd.
I want to let everyone know that starting tomorrow I’ll be going on Christmas vacation for a few weeks to celebrate my brother’s 50th birthday.
There won’t be any kind of communication from me until I get back home near the end of the month unless I’m lucky enough to locate a spot to do so.
I have mentioned a few times before about leaving this thread which still holds true for a variety of reasons and I’m using my vacation as a way to move on from here. There are too many memories in this thread associated with Chandler & Freddie portraying their characters as original WilSon as well as I miss seeing Bry’s posts here. I haven’t heard from him and there’s a possibility that I never will again.
My enthusiasm for posting isn’t what it used to be as when I first started and the vast majority of the posters who used to post have moved on to twitter, tumblr or they’re gone for personal reasons.
I’ve watched soaps for 30+ years and it’s been a long time since I’ve been this emotionally affected about a couple and the actors portraying them with this kind of connection. This is also the first time I’ve been involved in a fandom in this way and I will say this has been a learning experience for me. I started this thread with a specific purpose in which I tried and obviously failed in some areas to make this a safe place to post about our couple and I regret that some dissention has happened here. I do treasure some of the friendships that I continue to have from this thread but I’m more than at peace with leaving certain aspects of the social drama behind. I’ll still be around to find out what’s going on but my posting won’t be in the same capacity as it was before.
Also just for future notice for those who wanted a different type of thread that included Will & Sonny, they could have created a new one a long time ago but called it differently like “Will & Sonny (Open to all posters)” or something like that. I think that title would’ve been different enough for the Admin to keep it open.
My decision doesn’t mean this thread is closed because I don’t have that capability and everyone’s free to continue posting here if they want to. An alternate idea would be that someone open a new thread and call it “New WilSon” or “WilSon 2.0” or whatever they want so that way they can receive the email notifications that someone’s posted in their thread. ---- removed link.

Good luck to the next generation of posters and I hope everyone has a happy & safe holiday.
I, for one, am very sorry to see you leave this board. I enjoy your daily updates and I keep up with the Will/Sonny storyline through your posts on those days when I don't get to catch the show. You will be missed.
I must admit, I have been very lax in commenting on this site. I was never an avid poster, but I did comment from time to time on discussion topics that I found "motivating". I'm just sorry to see this board languish, because I honestly believe that some of the comments and suggestions might have influenced the storyline.
I'm going to miss Chandler in the role of Will, but I'm looking forward to seeing the interpretation of the character of Will by Guy Wilson. Each person brings something unique to a role and I'm sure that Guy will do it justice ... time will tell however. I'm willing to give him a shot at it.
