x-posted from the g+ group:
finding the ideal online discussion place for the c-realm has been difficult, has it not? facebook is lame, g+ is nascent and inadequate, the comments sections on the main site go unused and and unread, the vault forum remains a frosty and quiet place, the CR subreddit never took off, there's inadequate community support for starting a bbs forum (or is there?), not to mention that the one at the growreport forum doesn't get visited (that i know of), and since many listeners don't engage in such archaic internet pursuits as Livejournal or bbs forums, the point there is moot anyway. did i miss anything?
maybe a poll is in order. perhaps it's time to ask the participants in each fractured part of the discussion what an agreeable solution would be. maybe a universally accepted solution isn't available, but perhaps a quick inquiry to those who care as to what their best idea for an alternative would be might reveal a few common preferences that would allow for a consolidation into 1-3 channels?
the main discussion appears to happen on fb, g+ (thanks to kmo's encouragement), and the site itself. does anyone have an idea for a grand unification theory of c-realm discussion?
i like the LJ idea the most, but would certainly love to see a BBS hosted on c-realm.com. the current wordpress iteration of the vault forum is cumbersome, but functional.
the LJ community seems like a great idea to me, because of anecdotal evidence in my personal friend sphere of a partial egress back to the internet of 10 years ago, before everyone had the internet in their pocket, and the average post consisted of more than 128 characters.
