Entourage has taken the next step in winding down the company. The forum admin Zem announced today that the Edge support forums will be shut down in the next few hours, which means all the existing helpful content will be deleted.

Dear eDGe Community,

We greatly appreciate your support over the previous year but we unfortunately we must come to an end today. In the coming hours we will be shutting down the forum site. We suggest you consolidate the community back to one of the original locations where you started such as MobileRead or Google. You have been a fabulous group to work with. Special thanks go to Boris (who we re-iterate has never been an employee) who has definitely become a great friend to all eDGe users.

Update: Entourage and Mobile Read are trying to work out the technical details. Keep your fingers crossed.

It’s not too late to save that forum. Alex Turcic, owner of MobileRead Forums, the online eBook and eReader community, has already agreed to accept a copy of the Edge forums and  support it. All the helpful info will still be available and Edge owners can still support  each other.

If you know someone at Entourage, please contact him or her and ask them to go along with this.
