New Support Forum

directions to support

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 reimerc@outlook.com 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.

not alone

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 reimerc@outlook.com and don’t share the link with anyone!!

 

I Am Just Curious If You Would Like This Better

I have been browsing different web designs and have an idea that I want to run by you all, especially those of you who spend a lot of time in the support forum. I can open another blog, and link it to this blog and have it be the forum. The difference would be that your comments would appear in real time. I took a screen snap shot of what it would look like

I don’t know if it would make it easier to converse with each other. What do you think? I would close the support forum we presently have and when you click on support forum you would be taken to this other site.

I tried this once before and ended up shutting down the site because no one went there except the odd new person and they would comment and no one would reply because they were all going to the old support forum. If you follow what I am trying to say. So I would have to shut down the support forum here, I would still have the comments on file but hidden so you couldn’t go back and reread comments from the past. It would be a whole new forum, starting from scratch.

Tell me what you think. it makes no difference to me.

I would still like the traffic to come through this blog because it makes a difference with my ranking and ads etc. Not that it amounts to that much money, I get about $85 a month from the ads but it all ads up when you are broke and the more traffic I have the better paying ads I get on my site. It all boils down to the almighty buck.

Anyway let me know.
