Joss Whedon fan site Whedonesque shuts down after 15 years

Whedonesque, a popular Joss Whedon fan site, is ending operations today, Entertainment Weekly reports. The decision comes one day after The Wrap published an essay by Whedon’s ex-wife Kai Cole accusing the director of several affairs and questioning his vocal commitment to feminism. Whedonesque founder Caroline van Oosten de Boer has not confirmed whether the decision was influenced by Cole’s essay. “I have been toying with closing down the site for various reasons for the last five years or so,” she said in a statement to EW.

“So farewell then. 15 years is a long time and a lot of water has flowed under the bridge,” a post on Whedonesque today reads. “But now it’s time to say goodbye. No more threads after this one, we’re closing down. The site will at some stage become a read only site.”

The Whedonesque Twitter account will remain active.

In its more than a decade of existence, Whedonesque has become an active and popular forum for fans to discuss Whedon’s TV shows and movies. Comments from longtime users about the decision to shut down are mostly supportive, though disappointed.

The Verge has reached out to Whedonesque for comment and will update with any new information.
