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?

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....

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...

i don't think we need a lot.

i am not sure how it works, is there a mod always on-line or what?

but the more we have, the less each has to do .. i guess?

but i think we all will self mod pretty well -- we have all gotten to know each other and while there are a lot of diffence amoung us .... we have enough connection it isn't liek MDC at large, as great as it is, where there is such a variety of people with such differnt ideas and no common connection like our DDC ........

I guess

Yeah, I think we would mostly need mods for admin stuff. Not being familiar with this particular board though, I don't know what they would require for their groups in terms of administration/moderation.

The site is www.nov07.freeforums.org

If you sign up with a name that isn't the same name that you use here, then you will need to let me know. I set the board up so you have to be registered to read or view the boards so we will be private.

I also put it so I have to approve the registration for the same privacy reasons.

If anyone has suggestions once they register, feel free to let me know.

I just registered, Cindy! Thanks for doing this!

Will the forum index have to be split into different sub-sections? Like breastfeeding, diapering, general discussion, etc?

It doesn't have to be divided. I put up some forums just to give it some structure but if you all prefer it to be just one place, then I will set it up that way.

I am flexible to what everyone wants!
