A "keep in touch" thread

Recommended Posts

Datrys

So if the forums are closing, many people will be wanting to connect in other ways.  

Here's a thread to invite people to connect, or, I guess, to make any last post that doesn't fit anywhere else!

For what it's worth, my inbox is open for anyone who wants to find me on FB or the like.  :)

Can we set up a free forum somewhere? Does anybody know who hosts these? Whirlpool or something?

I don't think free forums are easy - there are costs involved in hosting - but you might be able to set up something like a big FB group.  "EB exiles"!

Yeah a FB group is probably the easiest if it has to be done in a hurry.

I like the anonymity of a forum though...

I guess it will do for now, is there another forum we can all go to?

I'm devastated, especially right now, so much less socialising going on atm...

Is it possible to set up something on Reddit maybe?

Is anyone else familiar with Slack? I use that in other domains (not work related) and it's quite good. Can be reasonably anonymous, except for the moderators, who need your email address.

Yeah, I'd really miss the anonymity if we went to Facebook. But better than nothing. 

 

Is bubhub still alive? What's it like over there?

I like the anonymity too. 

What about bubhub? Is that still a thing?

Mumsnet scares me...

The young folk talk about Dischord a lot. I've no real idea what it is - would it apply to this?

Familiar with it and love it for work... not sure about something like this though. I think it will stagnate without anything to drive new users, which is part of the problem here I guess but will be much faster on Slack.

Count me in. I still need a place to be a political animal, loud and proud feminist and more support as I find myself moving further into disability support and inclusion.

I don’t want to run a forum, but I could get an extremely basic site/ forum up and running tonite that people could join to stay connected if others are willing to be mods, set out rules OMG!

I really don’t want FB.

I've tried Discord and found it really confusing.

I might be willing to mod, if I'm not doing it alone.  Have been a mod elsewhere for years.  But depends on the dynamics that evolve.

Open inbox for me - I used to include my first name (Kent) in my sig.

A few school parents used to be on here and I've met them IRL of course. Cinnabubble and I almost met in Target Broadway just after Justine Clarke had asked me some book advice (and also worked int he same organisation for while). Ds12 and I caught up with Vanessa71 when we headed to Melbourne a couple of years ago.

16 years and almost 12k posts is a lot, and I've valued seeing a different perspective than the male dominance everywhere elese.
