It's the end of the Democratic presidential primary on Democratic Underground [View all]

This discussion thread was locked by EarlG (a host of the Announcements group).

It's been a little over a year since we opened the Democratic Primaries forum here on DU, and now that we have a presumptive Democratic nominee (Congrats, Joe!) the time has come to shut it down. We're going to let you all post your postmortems in there for another day or so and then we are going to archive it.

If you previously expressed support for Joe Biden in the primaries, your signature line in the DU Primaries forum still shows you as a Biden supporter. If you supported someone else, your signature line now shows you as "Undecided." I encourage everyone go to the DU Candidate Preference page and set your preference to Joe Biden if you have not already done so.

At the moment we do not know if we are going to set up a new top-level forum for the upcoming 2020 elections. We will be following discussions closely to decide whether we need to do so in the future.

In previous presidential election years this has traditionally been the time when the DU Admins would beg forgiveness for the pervasive incivility on the website and gently reprimand our members to try to make an effort to be nice. But I'm not sure any of that is necessary this time because overall I think this primary has been (dare I say?)... not so bad.

So instead I want to express my gratitude to all of you who came to DU during the primaries and passionately supported your preferred candidates, while treating your fellow DUers with kindness and respect. Thank you.

As we head into general election season, I feel like the members of this website are more united than we've ever been. As you know we expect the members of Democratic Underground to support Joe Biden and all other Democratic nominees in the elections this fall. But this year I don't think we'll have much trouble coming together to win in November!

Go Dems!
