Hi all,

I was just reading about the new Social Groups thing that MDC is starting, and I was wondering how y'all feel about it. Should we be planning to switch over to becoming a group instead of a forum (anyone can read the groups, from what I understand, but to comment you need to 'join')?

My initial thoughts are that unlike the DDC threads that get archived, we seem to have a good system worked out here for the most active people (and I'm always happy when new people stop by, either just for a single comment or to settle in and stay a while), and the other threads (besides QC, Q&P, and Q&N) that people post seem to be largely topical and in some ways best left open for anyone from the site to comment on. Am I missing anything? Do you all feel like we'd be better served by having a 'leader' and monitoring who comes and goes? I don't think I've ever run across a comment on this board that was hateful or trollish, so I just don't know that we need to limit membership, but I'd love to hear all of your opinions!

She's here!
And so are the boys!

My first instinct is to say that I don't mind it the way it is now, but that I'm open to the idea, if it makes sense and I'm missing it due to severe Placenta Brain.  Thanks for bringing it up!

Isa~ I think that things are working out for Queer Conceptions pretty well. I'm not sure if what the advantage would be to change it to a 'social group'. I am open as well to whatever everyone thinks is best.

starling, you have to watch out for that. I've heard it can be serious.
