Nov DDC Closing -- Come to our new forum

post #1 of 72
Thread Starter 
I am a member of a freeforums.org forum and it works really well. I would be willing to set up a board and run it (with moderators set up as well) instead of using a yahoo forum. I find the yahoo boards so hard to navigate.

Their boards can be set to private so it takes approval to join.

This is the main site. http://www.freeforums.org/

I am a member of another private forum over there and it is really easy to navigate and the structure is mostly like it is here with real threads.

Will they give us a warning as to when we will be deleted?

Sounds good. I'm willing to be a moderator if you need a few. I'm on here 5 times a day already.

I don't see what's so out of the question with having these boards renamed to something like Playgroups or something else post-birth oriented, it seems like a huge waste of time to come here, get aquainted with so many great folks only to have it shut down and essentially have the whole club kicked out just because the babies are all born now....If other forums can do it, why not MDC? Just my 2 cents, though....

That looks great, Cindy! I agree with Lizzie, though. Grrrrrr that we have to leave.

I am ready for the move

I know i have been MIA a lot recently ....

I can be a Mod too -- I am at home all day, and on teh computer waaaaay toooooooo much.

Some one jsut needs to give me detailed directions ... we will just have a link that can be posted here -- pop up to the new board and we can sing in / create a membership / profile (whatever) there .... or do we need to joint he master board, THEN join our area -- and how does the getting approval thing work??

I will go ahead and set up the site and I will give you all more information when I get it. You don't have to sign up on the main site, just the board.

And you're all sick of seeing me! But I am a flake for one thing and prone to disappearing. And eventually I have to get back to "work." I hate letting people down, especially my DDC friends!

Do you gals think that we will really need a lot of moderation? I mean, we're a fairly small, non-contentious group. Seems like the moderator would mainly be doing administrative stuff. And if we had enough moderators, then the workload would be spread out and no one would feel like they were constantly babysitting the board.

I *might* be willing to moderate, but I don't know how much time I can commit when I go back to work in Feb...
