Prevent the planned end to National Geographic's Your Shot community

This petition had 11,057 supporters

National Geographic's "Your Shot" community has recently surpassed 1 million members who share photos, photo critique, commentary, and a strong sense of community on a global scale. Without prior warning, the site announced its intention to shut down by October 31st. News items report that this is the result of economic restructuring after the acquisition of NG from Fox by The Walt Disney Company. The sudden demise of the Your Shot Community and associated "downsizing" is a betrayal of this community and its unique, positive online presence. We are respectfully requesting that Walt Disney Company reconsider this decision and maintain National Geographic's Your Shot community, thus retaining the loyalty of its members to the National Geographic brand. Further explorations of possible revision to the site (including the possibility of subscriptions) are in order before taking this drastic step.
