Well, I did it, we have a new support forum that is totally up and running but the old support forum won’t shut down until April 1st to give everyone time to get moved over. (anyone with extra chairs they don’t mind lending that would be great) Also I will leave it up to the members to decide who brings cookies and other treats to the forum.
Have fun with it!
I made it a private site so it will not show up in a Google search, you need to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to get the link. I want this to be a place where people feel safe to talk openly. We never know who is lurching in the wings and this way we don’t have to worry about an ex infiltrating. I am leaving it up to the individuals to monitor themselves and will only pop in occasionally. The most recent posts from here will be in the sidebar with links someone going to the support forum can easily pop back to the main blog to read the newest posts and I will supply a link in the side bar that will take you to the Home Page of the main site.
It is a bare bones site, no pages, no post (except the comments from everyone) no search feature, no tags unless someone adds them with their comment but really no need to do that.
It is a room for people to share and get support from other members of the blog. People coming into the blog will still be able to comment on individual blog posts like they always have. The only thing that is changing is as of April 1st 2015 there will no longer be a Support Forum on this site and the new one is by invitation only. To get your link to the new Support Forum email me at email@example.com and don’t share the link with anyone!!
